What a lovely area that you can wander and see so much. Watch out for trams if crossing the road as its easy to be distracted by the sights. The buildings and arcitecture is so impressive. Give yourself several hours to take in everything.

The hotel is 20 minutes from the airport and 7 minutes walk into the centre of Vienna near the opera house. Don't think you will be able to cover too much sightseeing but with an early breakfast who knows
