Hidden on the pedestrian-only Hafnersteig, in the Innere Stadt, the newly revamped Alma Boutique Hotel (formerly the quaint Pension Christina) is an efficiently-run property in a great location. Equidistant from the food stalls of the Schwedenplatz, the touristy bustle of the Stephansdom, and the shops of the Graben, the Alma offers a superb value with some pizzazz.

The Pertschy family, the crew that also owns the Pension Pertschy, has been running the 26-room Alma since 1964. Newly renovated rooms debuted in October 2008 and offer boutique must-haves like flat screen TVs and track lighting.

Décor, though crisp and minimalistic, does hint at “bachelor pad.” Heavy floor-to-ceiling curtains come in a black and gold pattern and are off-set by institutional headboards in dark metallic and faux suede room accents. A few spaces are overpowered by chintzy angel and fairy murals, but many still offer striking views of Innere Stadt rooftops. Bathrooms are fresh and cleanly-lined if painted in an ugly orange-red hue.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, as is air-conditioning. And, while prices have gone up, we still think it's a good choice.

About the Alma Boutique-Hotel neighborhood

The beautiful Innere Stadt is the Vienna of tourist brochures and chocolate boxes. The narrow, twisting cobblestone streets and fin-de-siècle façades, the expensive shops on the pedestrian-only Graben, and the alluring Stephansdom are all here. Happily, the Innere Stadt is big enough to boast back streets that appear quiet and undiscovered, thus offering a respite from the frenzy.
