Known as the smallest grand hotel in Vienna, Austria is the Hotel Kärtnerhof. It has a Wilhelminian façade with an interior of fine wallpaper blending grey and sage colors to compliment the exterior. A vast combination of Viennese Art Nouveau mingled with fine Italian materials and fused with French flare is found throughout the interior.  The interior designer, Niccolò Grassi, left reminders of a German naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt, leaving the original parquet flooring.

The “Dom-Suite” has a stunning view of the symbol of Vienna, St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Considered ‘one of the most important Gothic structures in Austria, the 12th-century building is about a three-minute walk away.

The house was once known as the brothel “Madame Rosa” during the post-WWII years. The Madame Rosa suite is named after the house during these years.

The third suite is the “Christiane Hörbiger Suite”. Now living in Vienna, Christiane Hörbiger was known as the “the Grande Dame of German and Austrian film”. Her dog Loriot, a pug, is known to stay at the hotel.

I stayed in a single room. It was a small room, 12 m² (129 ft²), but had everything I needed. The single bed was very comfortable, the desk offered more than enough room for me to set up my laptop and work. The bathroom was spacious and offered a bathtub and shower.
