CONCLUSION

I was in Vienna a few weeks ago and on our flight back to Stockholm, Mike and I were able to visit the Austrian "Senator" Lounge, which is located to the left of the reception. There is also the First Class/Honorable Circle Lounge (also on the left side) and the Austrian "Business" Lounge (to the right of the reception) which I have previously visited. Comparing it to the Austrian Business Lounge, I would say that this lounge is much better. I thought that the food selection on the buffet during breakfast and lunch time was good and I actually enjoyed my lunch which consisted of pasta salad, pasta with tomato sauce and caramel and chocolate mousse cake. They also had two kinds of soups namely, pea soup and minestrone which were both delicious. Wifi connection was good and complimentary. If you want to use the shower room, you would need to ask the receptionist for the key, as is the case on most lounges. Overall, a nice lounge.
