the Altstadt in Vienna

Dear Shaded Viewers,


I am in Vienna for a meeting with my friends from Unit F. I have a lovely room with a view. 

 The charming hotel Altstadt invites it's guests to help themselves to delicious homemade cakes and tea from 16h – 19h. An inviting fire is calling to you. The slogan at the Altstadt is 'The Art of Hospitality' more hotels should give this idea some thought instead of placing a bottle of water in a 5 star hotel with a price tag of 5 EUROS staring at you. Internet is also included. This is definitely my kind of hotel.

If someone wants to offer me a world trip testing out hotels du charm, I am more than willing. I think every journalist that I know is interested in doing the exact same thing. In fact Sameer Reddy at this moment is living large in Zurich, up high on a mountain top and promised to send a report back to Shaded Viewers.
