01-View from my window, Lindner am Belvedere, Vienna. You're looking at a driveway, wall + fence, and a church cloister. The hotel room was a decent size and very nicely furnished in modern. However, non-smokers should INSIST on a non-smoking room, which are only on the 7th floor and have lovely views.
