Hotel Schwalbe puts you within a 15-minute drive of Schoenbrunn Palace and Austrian Parliament Building. Free perks include buffet breakfast and WiFi. Also, Museum of Natural History and Gerhard-Hanappi Stadium are within a short drive.
The hotel is a lovely older building which has been owned by the same family for several generations. The facilities, however, are modern and completely comfortable.Altogether it is in tip-top condition. Members of the family work in the hotel at various times and ensure a most congenial atmosphere. There are several very good family-run restaurants in the area. I would certainly stay there again, despite the distance from the city-center.Pros: The room was large and airy, with a good-size bathroom and separate wc. Everything was pleasantly decorated and immaculate. Breakfast was generous and fresh. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Very quiet neighborhood.Cons: The hotel is reasonably close to public transportation and had very good parking arrangements for those with a car. But it is some distance from the center of the city, so it was not easy to return to one's room during the day.
