The Lindner Hotel am Belvedere is located in Vienna on 12th Rennweg. It has four stars, 219 hotel rooms and suites and is part of the Lindner Hotels and Resorts. The hotel has a restaurant, a lobby bar and a wine tavern. In addition there are six function rooms available. The hotel has a fitness center with sauna and solarium.The hotel is located near the famous Belvedere Palace, a manageable system of the Baroque with sumptuous gardens and recreational facilities. The Rennweg much frequented by cars. A garage is on the right side of the hotel. The trains run only from Munich to Vienna Westbahnhof. To get to the hotel, it is best to buy a 48-hour or 72-hour ticket and may in the coming days, all "public transport" use. Two minutes' walk from the hotel a tram stop 71, which is very handy. The leaves but only up to the Schwarzenberg Platz. From the West Railway Station you can take the U3 direction Simmering and change trains at the station road, take the escalator up to the station Wien Mitte and another two minutes ahead of the S 9 eastwards to Rennweg. I had the ADAC CityPlan Vienna here, because there are also the numbers of public transport lines and the stops are marked. On the afternoon of my arrival day I had even looked at some of Vienna, was at St. Stephen's and walked around. Then I drove to the hotel and was greeted very friendly. The reception area is bright and big. I expressed the wish for a room for smokers and one that goes out to the back, because I did not want to be right on the street. Which was fulfilled to my satisfaction. I was given according to the description of Tchibo Travel, my information pack and a voucher for entry as well as coffee and cake. I was still explaining what the hotel has to offer, and I got the room key. I was told I would get a double room because everything else was already booked. I agreed. I could take the lift or use the stairs. The corridors are carpeted and very quiet. The hotel and makes a neat and clean appearance. In addition to the reception, there are two computers, where you can go anytime for free on the Internet. The devices are already tapped some of the buttons wobbled, but it all worked. The room is opened by means of a smart card. You stick by the front door into a slot, and the light comes on. From the door I came into a small hallway, going on from where the bathroom right. The wash area was separated from the rest room, but open and inviting. The toilet was separate. In the right pane of the room were two beds with ceiling trim, and it had been placed bathrobes. The sleeping area behind the headboard is adorned with a pretty floral motif. Links to the wall stood a desk and an office chair. Inside was a mini-bar, was also a kettle and coffee and tea accessories to make it. In addition, there was little information material about the hotel. I could read that trips are offered. Gar Budapest or Prague, you can watch from here. Of the beds has a direct view on the TV that is mounted on the wall. They were all established programs in the menu, but nothing unusual in size. Again in the corner stood a chair that was made to look old. The curtains had to pinch and provided a sufficient darkness and privacy from the outside. What was added in my room: It was right beside the elevator. At the head of my bed, I heard noises and had always about the impression that would go along on the street outside the tram. At first I thought that too, while it was up to something else. But it did not bother me really. Otherwise the room was nice, clean and quiet, and I think if I had expressed a desire for a move, which also would have been fulfilled. With the coupons I was able to get on the two nights that I was in the hotel, at the bar each have a very tasty cake with whipped cream and chocolate. I've taken to your room. Here were also always some people who want to enjoy alcohol in wine taverns, there is the whole range of wines. Dishes from the restaurant, I have not tried. Breakfast was included and offered all the usual dishes such as buns, bread, cereals, the matching deposits, butter, margarine, jam, Nutella, and so on. Not so good for me as a vegetarian, I found that a bun with bacon places was there and was not labelled as such. There are now quite a lot of people who renounce meat, not only religious but also for ethical reasons, and even if the dead animal, then please separately. Otherwise, it was all right. There was a pleasant atmosphere. Present were many business travellers, couples and also a few solo travellers. The city is not far, in just over 20 minutes you are there. From the hotel it is only a short stroll to the Schwarzenberg Platz. Here stands the equestrian statue of Prince Karl Philipp zu Schwarzenberg. A series worth seeing buildings surrounding the square. At the southern end are the fountain at the War Memorial and the Red Army. This is where the roads. Turns right and the Prinz-Eugen-Strasse, and left the Rennweg. About the former leads to the main entrance of the Upper Belvedere, on the latter to the Lower Belvedere with the garden. The park with the castle was built in 1718-1723 for Prince Eugene of Savoy in the Baroque style. Through the entire garden, pull gravel paths, which are provided with close-cropped hedges and small trees. A series of elaborate statues and fountains delight the heart of every visitor. About staircases leads to the front area of the Upper Belvedere, which is decorated by a labyrinthine system is designed. From here the view is worth to the city and the hills behind it. Due to the side benches are set up, inviting you to linger. In the castle house temporary exhibitions of paintings by famous masters. Scattered in the grounds of a sphinx statues in armour and with long braids are placed. The staff was always friendly and eager to meet the needs of the guests. It consisted of Germans and Austrians. Had you walked a question or wanted to order a taxi, simply to the reception. This is also staffed around the clock. Highlight is, of course, that everything was always clean and, just as you would expect in a 4-star hotel. Nowhere I found dirt and had to tease me about something. I have not regretted that I had chosen this hotel. Next time I would probably book directly, because I need these coupons and information pack is not really. That would have been even cheaper. But I've had a great time and am happy to come back here every night. When I again am planning a stay in Vienna, this hotel is for me definitely the first choice.
