This hotel is a wee gem in a busy place like Vienna. Although the hotel is very central its position down a side street means you avoid the noise of the nearby Cathedral area, Karntner Strasse, Graben, Kohlmarkt which are the main shopping areas.
Many of the larger deluxe hotels are further out on or near the Ringstrasse (ring road), about ten to fifteen minutes walk from the Cathedral, so the Konig Von Ungarn is a good choice.
Schwechat Vienna Airport is just 10 miles from the centre – there is a combined rail and taxi fare available taking only16 minutes for the train portion.
