It's artistic, chic & we love it: The Perfect Hotel in Vienna for Gay Travellers!
What makes a hotel perfect for gay travellers? Is it is sense of design? Or its premium location (nearby the gay scene)? Maybe it is just about its friendly atmosphere. Well, Hotel Beethoven combines all the above seamlessly, so one could say that this is the perfect hotel for gay travellers.
The hotel's fine location will bring gourmet foods, stalls and lifestyle bars right on your doorstep. The Opera, Musikverein and Museumsquartier are only a few minutes' walk away. And the best part: most gay bars are 10-15 minutes' walking from the hotel.
Last but not least, the Beethoven Wien's rooms are decorated with vintage and modern wallpapers, while they are spacious and definitely Instagrammable. You can choose where you want your room to look over like the inner courtyard or the traffic-calmed Papagenogasse.
