Located at the heart of Central Europe, Vienna is a city full of culture, music, art and history. Characterized by its baroque architecture, Imperial history and of course, home to the infamous Mozart, Strauss and Freud, Austria’s capital is unequivocally one of the top cities to visit!
Everywhere you walk in Vienna, you will find yourself surrounded by Imperial palaces, horse carriages and grand opera houses.
There are so many hotels to choose from in this city which at times, can be extremely overwhelming.
Through our partnership with The Hotel Specialist, we had the chance to stay in the heart of the city at Vienna’s top 4-star hotel, Hotel Beethoven Wien and with its luxurious brightly lit rooms, amenities and unforgettable pastries, it was the experience of a lifetime.
This whimsical hotel nestled in culture and cuisine is just opposite the Theatre an der Wien and just a brief walk from the Vienna State Opera, Museums Quarter, the Hoffburg Palace and vibrant shopping streets!
The shopping squares and streets are nothing short of chic and with Hotel Beethoven’s convenient location, you’ll find yourself surrounded by some of the best sites and well known attractions in the city.
Each floor of Hotel Beethoven is devoted to a particular historic era and theme that represents the diverse culture of the city. Within the hotel you can admire the various art paintings and sculptures that stand against the hotel's antique wallpaper along with the historic relics and works by some of Austria’s most notorious politicians, musicians, artists and philosophers.
On the first floor you will find the literati of the Viennese coffee houses with rooms dedicated to literary intellectuals. (We were in the Hermann Bahr Room!)
The Second floor’s theme is Secession, with its decorative cupola of golden laurel leaves, it pays homage for the free spirit of Viennese artists. In the rooms on this floor you will find inspiration and themes of contemporary and historical Secession artists.
The third floor, focuses on the importance of art and culture with the theme of Ludwig Van Beethoven.
The fourth floor pays tribute to the hotel’s immediate neighbor, Theatre an de Wien. Founded in 1787, the theatre was not only for the citizens of Vienna, but for some time, was a home to Ludwig van Beethoven and it was here that he conducted the opening night of Eroica.
The fifth floor shows the love and desire in Vienna which constitutes to much of the city’s charm. Sensuality, free spiritedness, and devious flirtation are all represented on the 5th floor.
The sixth floor commends the strong women of the Fin de Siècle. The inventors, muses, networker, reformers, and fatales play an important role in Vienna.
If you’re looking for a luxury getaway, look no further. There is a dedicated concierge, bathrobes and tea room to constantly keep you relaxed.
If you’re one for atmosphere, the hotel has a beautiful parlor that overlooks the city’s quaint streets. In the corner stands an elegant Steinway and an ornate tea and coffee station with fresh pastries available at all times. Upon arrival, expect a cup of tea and an Austrian delicacy waiting for you, as a warm welcome to the city.

The atmosphere of the hotel is like walking back in time. The walls and ceilings are draped in ornate fabric creating an unbelievably sensory experience. If you ever need fresh air, the courtyard is decorated with freshly watered plants and cozy cushions.
Browse through their dense library for some suitable literature that will take you back to the 16th century. Calming classical music will serenade you through every room and you will never want to leave.
The hotel was really decorated superbly and gave you a true authentic Vienna experience. Stepping through the doors of the hotel you immediately find yourself in the center of the arts; especially music.
