With a prime location—directly on the pedestrian thoroughfare and luxury clearinghouse of the Graben—the Nossek is an august pension operated by the Bernard family. It's existed as a hotel since 1909, and provides an authentic Viennese experience, right up to the classical music playing in the lobby. (With good reason: Mozart once took up residence in this building!)
The 30 rooms are tasteful but without much in the way of a theme. Wooden desks, floral bedspreads, and yellow floor tiles in the bathroom impart a vague feeling of Central Europe; we really liked the parquet floors and double-height ceilings as well. All rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi and TV. Some rooms have bathtubs but most have showers, which are spotlessly clean. Smaller rooms face the Nossek’s courtyard, while suites face the Graben.
With the Stephansplatz in sight, there is no shortage of shopping options nearby. Note that the Nossek is old-fashioned enough to be a cash-only establishment.

About the Pension Nossek 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.
