The Hotel de France is conveniently close to trains & busses however the hotel is not worthy of a 4 Star rating. The mattress was very hard & uncomfortable, sheets were rough & towels were old & in need of replacement. The towel warmer in bath was on the entire time, the room was too hot, no way to turn...

We stayed at Hotel de France for 5 nights recently. Its location is brilliant as you can walk to anywhere within the Ring so easily (if you like walking) because the centre of Vienna is relatively compact. Failing that there is access to public transport (trams and metro/subway/underground) less than 50 metres away. We received a friendly and helpful welcome... More

We found the hotel very good, location was perfect. We were lucky with our room having read other reviews. It was spacious and clean. All necessary amenities. Staff helpful and courteous. The breakfast was more than adequate, plenty of choices, cooked and continental. Best to come mid week as by Friday the hotel and breakfast room was very busy and... More

We booked the hotel based on the stars, location and the photos and description of the room. The entrance and lobby of the hotel was impressive but the receptionist, an old man that seemed to be in a hurry to attend us, was quite rude. We went to the room and found out that it was not at all as... More

It was a very, very pleasant stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and silent (though it's greatly located), the staff was really nice and the breakfast was amazing. We could walk to nearly everywhere, and we were next to most of the principal attractions (rathaus, albertina museum, parliament, st. stephen's cathedral...). Perfect!!!

The second part of my trip to Vienna was spent at this hotel. It was much more reasonably priced than the Marriott, but needless to say, doesn't have the same amenities of a big name chain hotel. The staff was wonderful. My daughter and I arrived at 10:30 am and they let us check into our room immediately. The room... More

This Hotel is situated in an ideal location to see all the tourist landmarks in the Innere Strad district of Vienna, Austria. The rooms are in style befitting Vienna, the staff are friendly and speak excellent English. The buffet breakfast is excellent, room service is excellent. Highly recommended.

Elegant and classic, this is the perfect European "grand" Hotel! Lovely room, friendly, helpful staff, and the perfect location! My husband attended a conference during the days, so I was on my own navigating the city. Hotel de France is right on the Ringstrasse, just cross the street and step on the trolley, go round and round, hop on hop... More

·From the moment I checked in I was made feel very welcome, most important at any time but especially when travelling solo. I was celebrating a significant birthday on the day, January 1st, that I arrived and I was upgraded to a junior suite by the duty manager, who was also celebrating her birthday that day. Viel Dank, Frau Mrziek!... More
