Hotel Am Stephansplatz: Closest Hotel to St. Stephen’s Cathedral

56 Steps to the Viennese Icon, St. Stephen’s Cathedral

Hotel Am Stephansplatz, constructed in 2004 in the center of Vienna, is 56 steps from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a Viennese icon. There is no ornamentation on the exterior of the hotel.  Anything other than a plain building front would take away from the beauty of the St. Stephan's ornate Gothic and Romanesque exterior.

Free Buffet Breakfast and Internet Access

Hotel guests appreciate the complimentary hot and cold breakfast buffet, high-speed wired Internet access, and WiFi. There is a unique perspective of St. Stephan's and parts of Vienna from the hotel’s rooftop terrace. Round-trip airport shuttle service, valet parking, and airport parking are available at a surcharge. Tours and ticket help are among the concierge services. Other amenities and services are on-site shopping, sauna, fitness center, 24-hour front desk, and 24-hour fitness center.

Nearby Historical Sites with Character

St. Stephan’s Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna and the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna. The cathedral offers several guided tours of the towers and catacombs. Also, close is the Spanish Riding School. Travel only 10-minutes by foot to the oldest riding school in the world, and the only school to train Lippizan horses. Training sessions and performances occur at the Winter Riding School facility, constructed between 1729 and 1735. See the large collections of prints at Albertina Museum, 10 minutes from the hotel.

Guest Rooms Have Spring Water Bathtubs

Guest rooms have separate bathtubs and showers, with the bath water coming from mountain springs. Each soundproofed room has a flat panel television with satellite service, telephone, minibar, safe, and desk. Other amenities are premium bedding, turndown service, and blackout curtains/drapes. Connecting/adjoining rooms, convenient for families, are available upon request. Room access is via exterior corridors.

The Bottom Line

The breakfast buffet at privately owned Hotel Am Stephansplatz is extensive. The bathrooms are large. The staff is attentive and helpful. The rooftop terrace offers expansive views of Vienna. There are several sightseeing venues less than a 15-minute walk from the property.  Public transportation stops are near the hotel. Hollmann Beletage is a comparably priced hotel.  The entrance to the property is not well-marked, causing many guests to walk past the building without noticing the main door. The rooms are not as luxurious as those at Hotel Am Stephansplatz and is not as conveniently situated near local transportation.

Expert Reviews
You aren't likely to find a better location than this serene hotel, which sits directly across from the front entrance of St. Stephen's Cathedral.
Rough Guide
Newly refurbished rooms are modern, comfortable and spacious, and it’s just about as central as you can get without actually being inside the Stephansdom. Doubles from €180.
The Telegraph
Eco-friendly accommodation in the heart of the city, directly opposite St Stephan's Cathedral. Even though right in the midst of Vienna's throbbing centre, where crowds never seem to...
