Across from the Anker clock on the Bauermarkt and less than a football field's distance from the Stephansdom, the Hotel Schweizerhof is a charming three-star family-operated property disguised as a business hotel. The location is prime, and rates reflect this, but if you're looking for Innere Stadt proximity over amenities and design, the Schweizerhof is a reasonable choice.
Room décor is a little dated. Much of the lobby is covered in marble, gilt and pink, a combination of high Viennese style and the Ivana Trump school of design. It's not overly offensive, and at least feels younger than the hotel's 40-some years. The spacious television lounge at the far end of the lobby and courteous if distant staff manning the front desk mitigate the odd stylings.
Upstairs, the 55 rooms are more restrained than the lobby, with jaunty floral or stripe patterns kept to a minimum. Top floor spaces have the bonus of skylights, which we found beautiful though likely not the best choice for late risers.
Amenities include satellite television and free wireless. The bathrooms are average sized and perfectly clean. Don't miss the hotel's solarium, perfect for surprising those at home with your made-in-Vienna tan.

Innere Stadt, Vienna, Austria
About the Hotel Schweizerhof 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.
