From the 5th of May to the 8th of May 2011 the Pop-festival Vienna will take place in front of the Church of St. Charles (Karlskirche). 41 young and individual musicians will show their music projects. For this year’s opening they have invited a special guest: Skero. He is famous in Austria for his song “Kabinenparty”. This year he will perform with a big band of 15 people and he’ll present a new musician from the Austrian pop-scene, Lylit.
On April 27th 2011 we picked the winners who had participated in our drawing for a free weekend at our Boutiquehotel Stadthalle. We had collected around 300 guest feedback questionnaires over the past months and the lucky hand of our colleague picked a winning questionnaire. Our guests: E+M. Flößer from Germany are the happy couple that won a free weekend: 2 overnights for 2 people in a double room with garden view; including breakfast!
So, you see, not only do we appreciate our guests’ valued responses, it can also be worth the while to take 5 minutes of your time and let us know what you think.
The team of Boutiquehotel Stadthalle wishes everybody around the globe:
Happy Easter! Fröhliche Ostern! καλó πασχα!
Kellemes Húsvétot! Srećan Uskrs! Buona Pasqua!
