After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we decided against the Starwood sister property because of the snooty factor. The Bristol was fantastic! It is located right next to the Opera and adjacent to the best parts of old Vienna. There is also the convenience of a subway entrance and street car stop right in front of the hotel. It is also...

Hotel Bristol is a beautiful upscale hotel located right in the middle of the old town area directly across from the main Opera house. We were upgraded upon checkin, and thoroughly enjoyed our suite. Would recommend to anyone not on a tight budget.

I am a frequent visitor to Europe and love the fact that there are many historic hotels there still unspoiled. The Bristol is one of the topmost. It is like visiting a beautiful museum. Our room was very large with a king sized be, chaise lounge, sitting area and a beautiful antique dressing table. Service was absolutely top notch...even to... More

I booked this hotel based on its reputation and personal recommendation. We booked through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts for free breakfast, guaranteed upgrade at booking, gift and late checkout. Location: Superb. Right in the middle of things, close to the U-Bahn, within walking distance of all the central sights. The only place we took the U-Bahn to was... More

We stayed in Vienna for 6 days, and stayed in this one for the last two. Compared with Europa, which we stayed in earlier, this was an excellent hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, while the rooms were comfortable. The concierge showed us the directions and recommended several excellent restaurants for us. Basically, the entire hotel was full of... More

Lovely hotel, just on the edge of the Ringstrassa. Close to the tram and metro, and the center of the Ringstrassa. Also right across the street from the Opera House. We received champagne and flowers in our room, which was a nice surprise. The shower is a bit confusing, but great once it started to work. the room was gorgeous... More

I have scanned the comments of previous reviewers and like to comment my own experience here - if you have questions, please drop me a mail or comment: HISTORICAL LOCATION The Bristol lives of its history; you can see it and feel it all over the place.

Very nice, classic European hotel. While everything is well done and up to date, the rooms are on the small side and bathrooms are too small (would describe as close to tiny). Location is within easy walking distance to many central Vienna sights, including Hofburg Palace and St. Stephen's cathedral. A little longer walk will bring you to Belvedere Palace.... More

I booked this hotel through Hotels.com, choosing a superior room for £270 room only. I would be interested to know what the rooms one standard below mine were like, because I was given a pokey room at the back, one floor up, looking onto not one but two pavement restaurants. As these went on til midnight I had to sleep... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Bristol on a trip to see Austria and Germany. We had stayed here for two nights when we stopped in Vienna. It's old from the outside and you can tell that it's also old from the inside but it has been renovated. The rooms are decorated in a traditional classic style but... More
