Comfort, like all things of the past, reigns supreme in the Australian hotel scene. On the luxury level, there are large and wellappointed hotels, with excellent and most courteous service. The same is true of many of the smaller hotels and pensions in the city and, indeed, throughout the country.
A case in point are the castle or Schloss hotels, built inside the walls of medieval, renaissance and baroque landmarks. The network of Austrian Tourist Bureaux (known as the Österreichisches Verkehrsbüro or Fremdenverkehrsverein) publish up-to-date hotel and pension lists as well as a brochure Your Castle in Austria; their main office in Vienna is at Frederichstrasse, 7.
Inexpensive accommodations are not hard to find. The under-30 travelers on a budget can apply to the Austrian Youth Hostels Association. There are many modest pensions and bed-and-breakfast – look for the Zimmer frei signs or Gasthaus.
