Art in the Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna

The Eccentric Bohemian


Vienna is a really easy city to navigate aided by the distinctive districts. The Altstadt Hotel is located in the hip artistic 7th district in Spittelberg (the SoHo/TriBeCa of Vienna) and only a 4-minute stroll from the Museumsquartier in prime 1st district.

Just edging on the tourists in a zone of residential townhouses, urban villas and artistic scenes - this location provides an insight into true Viennese living while settled snug near the main sites, including Hofburg, Naschmarkt, The Albertina and vibe of Stephansplatz.

Besides that, the famed shopping mile of Vienna, Mariahilferstraße, is just around the corner, as is the Imperial Ringstraße decked in pure Habsburg romance.
