Small, friendly, family-run hotels – the kind where one immediately feels as if one is at home or visiting good friends – really do still exist. And one of them is Vienna’s Hotel Schwalbe.
The journey from the nearby underground station to St. Stephen's Cathedral takes only a few minutes. And it takes no longer than that to walk to the Vienna Woods. Do you prefer the hustle and bustle of the city or peace and quiet? Guests at the Hotel Schwalbe
, located in Vienna's 16th district, have the city at their feet and nature at their back. And on some days this makes decisions so difficult that after breakfast one prefers to simply remain sitting in the quiet courtyard or the strawberry-themed dining room, doing nothing but enjoying the atmosphere of this wonderful hotel.
The Schwalbe offers everything that a visitor to the Austrian capital
could want: a first-class location, lovely ambience, a friendly and helpful staff, quiet and tastefully-appointed rooms, and sometimes even events in the evening, if one doesn't feel like exploring the city's nightlife. The hotel's own Culture Salon features, for example, readings and appearances by the "Wiener Salon Schrammeln", a group performing traditional Viennese waltzes and songs typical of the city's wine taverns. The Schwalbe also offers attractive packages: whether you are newly married, interested in sports activities, or travelling with friends, the Schwalbe team is sure to have a tailor-made offer just for you. A special highlight is the Opera Ball Package, which includes two overnight stays and tickets to Vienna's most splendid ball. www.hotelschwalbe.at
