Have an over night stop on way to US... (cheap tickets so Austrian doesn't offer accommodations)

I'm with wife and 3 young kids, looking for a bigger hotel where I can stay in one room without them noticing the kids, or without them making problems.. any ideas?

I stayed a couple times at the LM was very nice, but kinda small hotel, not sure if we'll be very inconspicuous... any better ideas? Hilton any better?

Also whats the status with Simchas restaurant?

As a Gold, I received an upgrade at the Hilton (see above for which one, I forget offhand), and the corner suite would be big enough to handle e/o if you receive it. But I'm not sure about them noticing...

Are there any kosher food places that don't close in the afternoon (specifically between 3-5 pm)?

I'm not sure about pizza but Ohel Moshe Bakery that is located in the heart of the jewish neighbourhood is a great bakery that has decent breakfast menu and they have where to sit down and eat as well.

The Pizzeria at Taborstraße 43 was quite good, IMHO. Novellino was awful, though others have reported better experiences than me.

Thank you!! How about the actual place both look similar decent or is one "old European style"?

And anyone know if there are any parks or playgrounds in the area for kids? I'm staying at the Hilton and I'm planning on walking from the pizza back to the hotel

Novellino is very clean and sleek, very up-to-date. The Pizzaria is... well, a pizzaria. Like any other pizza shop.

Thanks for your help...

I just had a great meal at Novellino's... can highly recommend.. I thought it was a pizza store but turns out it's a nice dairy restaurant..

I had great pizza, Avocado Salad was really good, vanilla milkshake was great, iced coffee sweetened with sugar scared me a bit, but was nice (not enough ice though), french onion soup tasted fine but no cheese :(, and spinach ravioli (sauce was great, actual raviolo so so)

Overall very happy.. price wasn't bad all that for 55 Euro. (had 2 milkshakes and ice cream as well)
