Great location. It's a very nice, clean, and comfortable hotel. ... but they could use a new ironing board, someone's grandma must have brought one of the very few ironing boards they had, very strange as it is pretty nice hotel... :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central location in Vienna, High End Hotel"
Hotel does not get more central, just a block from St Stephens cathedral on the central shopping street in downtown Vienna. Hotel is modern and well appointed. Staff incredibly friendly. Rooftop bar was very neat with great views. Air conditioning in the hotel broke while we were there. Hotel was very nice and they upgraded the room to help compensate. […] They weren't able to fix over the weekend. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous Hotel in the Heart of the City"
We received a double upgrade when we checked in, and the room was amazing. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. Based on the lobby, I am confident that every room is wonderful. It definitely has the feel of an upscale boutique hotel. The hotel is lovely, but the best part is the location. It is steps away from St. Stephen's cathedral.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice quiet hotel in central Vienna. Nice room, although too hot at night. Great breakfast and very nice staff. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One of the best modern hotels to stay in Vienna"
I usually stay at another place in Vienna, but my hotel was fully booked and I tried this one - and wasn't disappointed! It is very stylish, reception staff were brilliant, my room was smaller than I expected but very comfortable (good bed!) and light, overlooking the side street. Obviously the location is ideal for tourism.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Små rum, annars mkt fint och bra på alla sätt och vis. Minibaren ingick i priset men det visste jag inte förens jag skulle checka ut.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Das Hotel Lamee ist einfach super gelegen. Die Einrichtung ist modern und sehr Geschmackvoll. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und bequem. Die Klimaanlage lässt sich schön fein dosieren, und läuft ruhig. Ideales Hotel für einen Kurzurlaub in Wien.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Tolle Lage und Design"
Das Lamee ist ganz fantastisch gelegen, der Empfang ist sehr freundlich und die Zimmer sind sehr gut ausgestattet. Standardzimmer sind eher klein. Finde es grosszuegig, dass Inhalt der Minibar im Zimmerpreis inbegriffen ist. Das Fruehstueck im Hotel war das einzige nicht so tolle Erlebnis. Der Preis von 25 Euro ist ueberrissen (auch wenn die Produkte […] bio sind), und es ist eher muehsam, dass neben allen warmen Getraenken und warmen Speisen auch Kaese und alle Wurst/Fleischwaren extra bestellt werden muessen. Zeitungen stehen nicht zur Verfuegung, und als Gast sollte man auch nicht die gsamte Getraenkebestellung mithoeren koennen, die der Ober gerade telefonisch aufgibt. Alles in allem ist das Hotel Lamee aber wirklich sehr empfehlenswert. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Sehr empfehlenswertes Hotel in top LageGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Dette er lillesøsteren til hotell Topazz og de samarbeider om det meste. Begge hotellene ligger i hjertet av Wien. Topazz var mitt absolutte favoritthotell i Wien. Nå er jeg usikker. Begge hotellene har det jeg ønsker meg av et hotell: Gangavstand til alt, overlegen komfort, spennende design, deilig frokost og ikke minst svært hyggelig og hjelpsomt […] personale. Hotellet var nytt i 2012 og åpner straks takterassen med bar og utsikt over takene i Wien sentrum... Jeg bodde her i 5 netter i månedskiftet mai-juni og gleder meg allerede til å komme tilbake. Om det blir Topazz eller Lamee får tiden vise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"high level of service and great location"
01/27/15 Kasper B Valby, Denmark
The location of this hotel is perfect for a weekend visit in Vienna. You are right in the middle of everything and short walks to some of the most interesting sights. The service level is really high. We visited in January and the roof terrase was closed down, but as we thought the view would be amazing we asked if we could go up there - and no problem, we were followed by one of the staff and politely waited around until our roof-top-sightseeing was done :) Rooms are modern and beautiful, with minor ware and tare . The Minibare is free and with a descent amount of soda, chocolate etc. Overall a great experience.
"Amazing location and great room"
12/16/14 mbhramar London, United Kingdom
I was at the hotel for 2 nights only but loved the location. Everything was within walking distance including the cathedral and the shopping district. If you are driving make sure you sort out your parking as the parking near the hotel is pricey and difficult to get.
"Excellent boutique hotel"
12/13/14 A TripAdvisor Member
I got the slightly larger deluxe room. Well worth it. Top design, great bathroom. Had a snack downstairs, asked for small portion and that's what I got. Roof terrace also great, in Winter they serve hot wine and punch and the locals also go there.

Very nice staff, so not so easy to write a critical description. This hotel is seeming made entirely of the same marble--stairs, elevators, bathrooms--and gives the impression that a nouveau riche friend of Putin designed it. Hard to sleep, as on top of the only noisy road in Vienna, and poor sound insulation. Coffee machine broken, room cards didn't work (4 times), maid service wakes you up at 08h and the staff then blames you for not putting out the Do Not Disturb sign, which actually doesn't exist... Hilariously, as compensation for our being over-booked at the much better hotel across the street, they offered a room upgrade (still small), and a punch drink with a potato. Yes, a potato. This is just bizarre. A hotel to avoid unless you like lots of cold marble and terrible service, and need to sleep only 6 hours a night on vacation!
"Worst hotel in my travels bar none."
10/11/14 ucdgrad Windermere, Florida
We were booked into the sister hotel across the street but on arrival we're told there was a problem with our room so we were upgraded to the Lamee. Our room was stifling hot, outside the weather was cool as you would expect in Vienna in October. We told the front desk 3 times that the room was unbearably hot. They brought an ineffective noisy ac unit . Despite jet lag it was impossible to sleep between the traffic and screaming outside on the street, and the awful heat in the room. We tried watching tv to take our minds off it, couldn't get the tv remote to work, called the front desk to be told the delivery of batteries had not come in!?! Worst hotel experience I think I've ever had.
"Bring Your Own Alarm Clock!"
09/23/14 Schwerin Lancaster, VA
My DH and I spent six nights at Hotel Lamee. There were a few issues that kept us from giving the hotel a higher rating. The most important one was the fact that we had asked for wake-up calls for three consecutive mornings, the last one being the morning of our flight home. When we realized the last full day we were in Vienna that we had a wake-up problem, we took the phone, which supposedly could be used as an alarm clock but had no instructions on how to set and whose time had never been right, to the concierge to set. The problem with the wake-up calls is that it is not automated but depends on the person at the front desk to make the call. If the concierge is assisting other guests, then the wake-up call gets put off. We also found the coffee maker and the Wi-Fi temperamental, the latter frequently halting until the password was reapplied. For two days, there was no Wi-Fi, which really did not hinder us specifically as we were out touring, but other guests had to go to the Hard Rock Café to get their devices working.
"Great in any way"
08/29/14 Christophe P Montreal, Canada
Lovely place, nice staff, great room and bathroom, excellent central location steps from St Stephen's.....the best deal I ever got in Vienna, which can be rather expensive. I enjoyed my stay very much and will return for sure.
Everything was wonderful. Hotel has an excellent location, staff is very friendly and really helpfull. Rooms were clean and renewed.A good hotel atthe heart of the city. Good memories and nothing to complain.
"Great Hotel in A Great City"
06/09/14 Reviews O Melbourne, Australia
I'll start by saying I love old European cities; I love places where walking the streets and laneways is the main attraction; I love places where beautifully prepared food (cake!) is king; I love music and art, especially when it is spontaneous; and I love good coffee. I was always going to love Vienna! I stayed at Hotel Lamee for 7 days while on a study trip. I travel fairly regularly, mainly in Europe and America, and usually alone and very independently, so I can speak to some of the specifics that I know solo travellers and working travellers are interested in. I had engagements at the Congress Centre and the University area. For anyone coming for a working trip, do not be afraid to stay in town. EVERYTHING is easily accessible from Hotel Lamee via the excellent, efficient (as only the European Metros can be), safe and clean train system....including the airport. It has to be one of the cheapest and easiest airport transfers I have done in Europe. Every station also has English adaptive ticket machines that take cards, and elevators if you have luggage, strollers or mobility issues. The hotel is new (maybe less than a year old) and everything is still is good condition. The rooms feel very clean and stylish, and I later read a fashion magazine where it was used for a photo shoot. The bathrooms likewise are clean and modern. The water pressure was excellent, although the hot water temperature was a little too tepid for me especially towards the end of a shower. I’m not sure if that is a safety mechanism in hotels, so that people can’t burn themselves, but I thought the thermostat could go up a notch. The room size was adequate for 1-2 adults, and on par with what I consider a good size for European boutique hotels. The toiletries were unbranded, but still did the job. There was a full length closet space to hang any suits or dresses you need to stay crisp, but no iron. There was a table with a lounge chair. The table was breakfast table size, so large enough to do some work on, or for two people to share a meal from, but not a study desk as such. The lighting was more than adequate, and in fact easy to switch between 3 different options of brightness. Despite being essentially in the centre of town, the sound proofing was impressively good with the window shut. Virtually silent. Likewise the climate control system for which you set the room temperature yourself. The television was good, but no non-German entertainment stations. The only English broadcasts were CNN and BBC cable stations which was fine for me as an adult. If you are travelling with kids you might miss having something other than the news to entertain the youngsters. The usual hair dryer, make up mirror, gown and slippers were supplied. There was no luggage stand or clock (which is a little disorientating when you are getting used to a new time zone). I am sure the front desk would have done wake up calls if I had asked. I did not use the rooftop bar, except to take some terrific photos. Judging by the steady elevator traffic to level 8, it is a popular meeting place. It would have been a suitably impressive place to organise to meet work associates there. There is a minibar in the room. It has water, coke, beer (Austrian, of course!) and apple juice. It also had some biscuits, plus a nespresso machine. No, it is not a full mini bar service for free, but it is still a step better than I usually get in an American hotel. A bottle of water and a bottle of coke plus cookies was perfect as a pack for me to venture out each day, given that I budget to stay in good accommodation by being frugal with meals. The refrigerator is also large enough to store your own purchases, and they didn't seem to mind, albeit I was sure to keep it all clean and tidy. Big Tip: Make use of the EXCELLENT Merkur Markt supermarket 80meters to the left of the hotel on Hoher Markt. Three floors of beautifully presented supermarket that is much more affordable than the gorgeous but pricey Menil Emporium. You can buy breakfast and lunch supplies or prepackaged meals, plus there is are impressive, deli, cheese, condiments and chocolate selections. There are no shortage of good bakeries nearby also (try Auer Brot or Joseph Brot). The location is perfect in every way. Two short blocks from Stephansplatz. Any closer to the Cathedral gets too tourist busy and noisy, especially at night when it fills with overly happy (read:alcohol lubricated) young people. Any further away gets a little more tedious to walk if you are at all on a time schedule. Kartner/Graben/Singerstasse/Kohlmarkt “streets” are a very pleasant 3-5 minute stroll away. Lesser known Wollzeile Strasse is one street down from the hotel and heads East. I thought it was one of the most under rated stretches of the old town. Likewise Naglergasse which is 500m from the hotel towards the West. It’s tributaries and the area around Herrengasse and the Burgtheatre, as you head towards the the University, was probably one of my favourite areas to walk. Safety did not concern me anywhere I went in Vienna, although I did stay out of the Prater after dark. Certainly any walk back to the hotel area was safe. I walked back to the hotel from various coffeehouses at 11pm, almost every night. The doors are locked after 10pm with access only for guests with a room card. I never saw loiterers in the foyer or hallways which sometimes you see in big hotels. No doubt the vigilant porters at the door deter any of those problems. The concierge staff, after this time, are stationed at the Hotel Topazz, which is literally 10 meters across the street. They are available by phone all night. Every request was met by the reception staff with enthusiasm and a genuine determination to help. I give them 6 stars. I was given power socket adaptors when I arrived, an umbrella when it looked like it would rain, water brought over at midnight by the night porter, and they fielded calls at 2am from people back home who misjudged timezones. They even made calls to a delayed tour bus that was supposed to pick me up, and persisted until that problem was fixed, even though it wasn't really their problem as much as the tour company's. They knew me by name by the second day, and asked me daily if there was anything they could do to help, perhaps looking out for me knowing I was travelling alone. The only thing they couldn't fix was the wifi which didn't work for my iPhone, but my computer wifi did work, thankfully. They probably need a booster for their signal for it to be picked up by smaller devices’ “aerials”. This is a common problem I encounter in all European cities. Still, this was the only serious problem I had during my stay since I was there to work, and I needed to keep things running back home. Be sure to make plans accordingly if you are Whatsapp dependent...my solution was to go to yet another coffeehouse (they all had wifi), although I really couldn’t keep in touch overnight which was when the working day was happening back home. The only other deficiency was the consistency of the housekeeping. Even so, my gripes are really minor, but I mention them because they would be so easy to fix. Overall, the housekeeping was adequate, and the room kept clean, although I’m a pretty contained traveller so I never really tested their abilities! When I passed them in the corridors they were always friendly enough to say “Grüß Gott”. There were just little things like toiletries not being topped up daily, or batches of conditioner but no shampoo left, or no second toilet paper roll to follow the one in use. The minibar would some days not have been replenished with water and milk, and pods of only decaf left for the nespresso machine even though I left a little note to explain the difference and that I needed the espresso pods rather than the fake stuff. I suspect that it might be simply a case of lost-in-translation rather than any lack of willingness to provide service? It’s something that a little education of the housekeepers could easily rectify, though. They didn’t seem to vacuum everyday, or change the sheets or towels everyday. This doesn’t bother me, particularly. I don’t vacuum or change my linen everyday at home, either! As long as they are clean and dry, I don’t mind if hotels want to save a little on this service if it then means they keep their rates competitive, or if they perceive an environmental advantage. If your idea of a hotel stay, however, is this sort of luxury then you might be disappointed.They also seemed to come around rather late in the day, so if you are the kind of person who likes to return to your room mid-day to have a rest, you might be sprung by the cleaning staff or miss having them do your room. Given how obliging the reception staff were, however, I am sure they would accommodate a request for early housekeeping if you knew you wanted the room uninterrupted later in the morning. The last thing I want to mention is the Viennese people themselves. I started the review by saying I loved Vienna, but you can’t love a city unless you find the people hospitable. The local Viennese people were gentle and spontaneously kind. I was offered unsolicited help on many occasions, especially with directions and translations. People in shops and at train stations were also very attentive, and very easy to talk to. I always make an effort to learn a few greetings, and how to apologise for not speaking the language. Whether it was appreciation for me not assuming that English is the only language, or whether it was just for the sake of expediency once they heard how bad my attempts at German were, I was always forgiven and accommodated even by those who modestly claimed to only speak a little English. They can all speak English far better than I can speak any other language, including those I’ve supposedly studied. Overall, I had absolutely no problems communicating with anyone, and only twice had brusque interactions with locals. Both times it was with waiters (once in Gerstner Kaffehouse (Demel is still number one!) and once at Figlmuller (give it a miss....Huth Stadt Gasthaus on nearby Weihburggasse is better)), and both times it was when I didn’t understand and made seemingly fatal mistakes with their systems for how to order and be seated. I don’t think it was a coincidence that in both those instances it was at venues on the tourist circuit where they are famous for the Lonely-Planet-Guide trade, but at the same time probably find the constant tourist influx a bit tedious to deal with. Read blogs from locals to seek out less tourist inundated places, and this doesn’t happen. Certainly no such problems at Hotel Lamee. I actually wonder if I should not post this review, and instead should be keeping them a secret so there will be a bed for me when I have a chance to return...please keep a room for me with a view of Stephansdom!
"Excellent location and room, in the heart of Vienna"
06/05/14 Vassilis F Quebec City, Canada
Stayed at the Hotel Lamée for 4 days, in May 2014 and had a great experience. The reception staff is very welcoming and even responded at a particular request of mine which was to book me a seat at a mozart concert the evening of my arrival at the Musikveiren. The only constructive comment that I could make is for the reception staff to make some suggestions about restaurants and points of interests that are situated nearby. If they hand out a plan of the metro (ubahn) that would also be quite pleasing. I think it would add a plus in the whole welcoming experience. The roof terasse is a must see, which gives this hotel a definitive big plus in choosing it in your stay in Vienna.
