Three-star central hotel
You will be staying in the well located Novum Hotel Congress Wien am Hauptbahnhof. The hotel is in the bustling Wieden district, opposite Vienna’s main train station and close to Belvedere Palace.
Built in 1900, the hotel includes a 24-hour reception, restaurant, breakfast room, bar, newspaper stand, hairdresser and conference room.
All of the ensuite rooms are traditionally furnished and feature cable TV, a phone, radio, hairdryer and free WiFi.
Vienna has managed to bag the titles of both ‘City of Music’ and ‘City of Dreams’ (though it has Freud to thank for the latter one).
Situated east of the Danube, Austria’s capital is a world centre of music, art and architecture, famous for its imperial palaces, concert halls and museums. It is also famous for its café culture, so you could begin your day of sightseeing in one the atmospheric coffee houses.
Next, you can set about exploring some of the city’s many fabulous attractions. These include the Ringstrasse grand boulevard, the fascinating Museums Quarter and the Hofburg Palace Complex.
For more contemporary enjoyments, head to the Donaukanal area overlooking the Danube, which is a graffiti-lined bar and clubbing hotspot.
Travel out from 14th November to 4th of January* and you will have a chance to see Vienna’s prettiest squares transformed into magical, twinkly Christmas markets.
There, you can stroll around shopping for gifts while breathing in the aromas of Christmas baking, hot punch and toasted almonds.

This TripAdvisor reviewer enjoyed their recent stay at Novum Hotel Congress Wien am Hauptbahnhof in Vienna:
‘Very clean and classy. It’s a hotel with classic ambience but with modern amenities. Good thing I booked our room in this hotel in advance because the place gets fully rented very fast. It seems to be a favourite place of tourists since it’s just 5 minutes walk from Wien HB, 20 minutes drive from the airport, and 2 minutes walk to the local tram station. The buffet breakfast was simple but so many choices. I rented a spacious twin bed room, it was very clean, quiet and well maintained. We had a view of the courtyard but there’s nothing there, just gave us enough daylight and cool breeze at night. The reception was polite and very helpful. They always have a welcoming smile each time we come back to the hotel.’
Book an enchanting escape
First things first – you’ll be seated together for free with your loved one if you snap up the early booking offer for January to March.
This deal would also be a fantastic way to catch the last of the Christmas markets.
But whichever dates you choose, today’s Big Deal promises to sweep you into a world of magic, music and marvels in legendary Vienna.
