This is a great place to experience both the look and feel of a pre-1914 European grand hotel and it's a must-see for nostalgics. The Astoria's public rooms have remained virtually untouched by time [having been preserved rather than renovated]. A little slice of Austro-Hungarian splendour preserved in aspic. Although not staying in the hotel, I had a great value lunch in the recently re-launched Mirror Café. A creamy fish soup was followed by a paprika beef stew with parsley potatoes and pickles, all washed down with a glass of house wine and a bottle of sparkling water for around £15.00. The service was formal and attentive without being stuffy. A highly recommended taste of a more civilised age. Superb.
