Stayed here for work and had a very good night's sleep as well as a hearty breakfast. Pleasant staff and a central location. The best part was the chandelier in my bedroom which had very high ceilings. So high the chandelier was easily taller than me! There was torrential rain the evening I arrived and there were not enough umbrellas... More

Outstanding hotel. Excellent service, beautiful large room with balcony. Location is central and right on the across from the Vienna State Opera House, perfect for sightseeing. Across from the subway and main pedestrian walking avenues and close to most museums, restaurants, and shops.

I recently had a business trip to Vienna. My wife and I decided to extend the trip and have her come over for the week afterward. To make the most of the visit we used her Starwood Platinum points and had a week here at the Hotel Bristol. Using extra points we opted for the Junior Suite (large room, private... More

I usually have a small room on one of the upper floors with a view of the Opera house that is just across the street. The rooms are different, some are more in the old traditional stile, some...

We stayed during winter and had the most amazing newly furbished room. The view from the room did suck though. Hotel bar was typical Viennese smoking bar. Hotel is close to the opera and shopping areas.

I stayed at the Bristol 4 times in the past 4-5 years, both inwinter during Opernball and during summer during Life Ball and each time I was more than happy with my stay. Make no mistake this is a 5-star luxury hotel and everything it offers lives up those standards. They have classically decorated rooms; very clean, comfortable, luxurious, yet... More

While at the mezz level, the hotel tales... More
