We had a fantastic stay in Vienna at the Bristol. This was our splurge hotel of the trip, and it did not disappoint. From the doorman, who shared some great local info, to the concierge, who recommended more than one off-the-beaten-path restaurant, everything was better than we could have asked for. Lovely old grand hotel.

Had such a great experience at the Hotel Bristol! The staff was lovely and provided us with a room facing the opera house. The concierge was so helpful - providing us with terrific food & concert recommendations. The location is central - walking distance to just about everything we wanted to see. I'm also a runner, so the concierge gave... More

A Fine hotel, in the very centre of Vienna, close to absolutely everything. Our room was very large, with 2 bathrooms! Service was excelent, bar lovely (and we could smoke), breakfast OK, but... This is a top priced luxury hotel but is within spitting distance of the Imperial and the Sacher, both of which make the Bristol look a little... More

Second trip to Vienna and we chose the Bristol because of its excellent location right next to the opera house. We treated ourselves to a Penthouse Junior Suite which had a balcony with views of the opera house. It was also possible to see the outdoor screen on which the performances are broadcast every evening! The room was extremely luxurious... More

The conceirge directed us to a nearby camera shop when we discovered we'd forgotten our charger and also to a nearby Austrian train office saving us from going to the... More

GREAT location in the heart of Vienna. Across street from opera and short walking distance to must-see sites and key shopping area. Wish we would have taken time to attend opera while there just to add to the Vienna experience. Hotel elegant and evident that it is steeped in history. Rooms clean and well maintained but time for some updating... More

Following a less than stellar time in Munich, I was overjoyed and thrilled to arrive in Vienna for a 4 night stay at the Hotel Bristol. From the staff at the reception desk, restaurant, bar and concierge, my husband and I couldn't ask for a more comfortable experience. The location is perfect, smack in the middle of "The Ring", the... More

I am sure it was once a grand old hotel not it is just an old hotel. Well past its prime.

Very nice hotel centrally located. The room was pleasantly large and had all the amenities you would expect for a luxury hotel. We were treated to a plate of chocolates, figs and fresh fruit upon returning to our room. The rooms all have a huge blind that comes down outside making sleep quite comfortable. Slightly expensive with no breakfast buffet... More
