We use only GRANDER water in the entire hotel. The water is revitalised by a magnet, which makes it refreshing and softer, and gives it a finer taste and health benefits. GRANDER water also facilitates housekeeping, since its improved solubility strength saves detergents and cleaning agents and benefits the environment. Current values: pH 7.91, nitrate 6.0 on average (source: Vienna municipality, 26.09.2013).
Please note that the hotel accepts no liability for valuables left in the rooms.
Our housekeeping department regularly harmonises the hotel. The rooms and guest areas are ceremonially cleansed with sagebrush smoke. This is based on Ayurvedic medicine, according to which sagebrush has soothing, relaxing and cleansing properties - for the mind and for the soul. This cleansing re-energises and creates a pleasant, invigorating atmosphere.
All guest rooms and public areas of the hotel are equipped with free high-speed Wi-Fi. Please ask the reception desk for the password, then connect your device with the Wi-Fi network "hotelwlan" and enter the password.
All guest rooms are equipped with air conditioning, which can be individually adjusted to your preferences year-round. The cooling function requires an outside temperature of at least 12°C. The integrated air humidification (automatically set to 45% humidity) operates year-round. Please note: when you open the window, the air conditioning will be automatically deactivated. It can also be used to heat the room, provided the outside temperature is below 19°C during the day and 16°C at night. Bathroom floors are heated year-round, although the heating is reduced when outside temperatures are high.
When you book a room, our hotel will pre-authorise your credit card for the first night. When you check in, a new authorisation will be made for the cost of your entire stay plus EUR 70 for any additional costs. This additional amount will be released again when you check out, if the room has been left in a satisfactory condition.
All guest rooms are equipped with a minibar that is restocked daily. The offered items are charged, and a price list is available in every room.

If a room is cancelled after this time or not occupied (no-show), the hotel may charge the booking party 100% of the price quoted (= all nights including breakfast booked). In the event of early departure, the remaining nights will be charged.
For "non-refundable bookings", a refund is not possible if the booking is cancelled or changed, or if the room is not occupied.
