History of the House

Charmingly managed to combine both old & new



The building which now houses the hotel was originally a dairy-processing business.

The courtyard features romantic and traditional brick masonry in its original, natural condition. After the days of the dairy, a number of shops moved into the ground floor, subsequent to which the current owners brought their own construction business to the building.

As a result of the complete refurbishment and addition of a lift featuring steel-and-glass construction, this old and beautiful building has successfully and charmingly managed to combine both old & new.

With respect to the history of the Mautner Markhof-Gasse, we should also mention that this is one of the oldest roads within the district, once having served as the village street of Simmering.

The setting is quiet and has a very pleasant “rural feeling”, even though you are still very much within the metropolis of Vienna.

History of the District



The community of Simmering was first chronicled in the year 1028. From 1605 on, it was the site of a brewery which represented an important revenue source for over three hundred years. Until around 1860, Simmering remained a small village. Afterwards, houses and public housing  quickly sprang up. There followed a period of rapid development which made this area a vibrant part of Vienna itself: Kaiserebersdorf – earlier just known as Ebersdorf – was the family seat of the Ebersdorfers. Emperor Maximilian II often resided at Schloss Kaiserebersdorf, the old family seat of the Ebersdorfers, when on his out-of-town hunting trips.

In 1892, Simmering and Kaiserebersdorf, along with Schwechat, were incorporated into Vienna’s 11th “Simmering” district.
