It would be nice to have someone at the reception that smiles! Even the groom did not smile or try to small talk me for tip. Five euros and no emotion... No air conditioning for a week is crazy. Without any good explanation except someone complained it was cold so they it turned it off for the whole hotel. A... More

This was probably the worst hotel that I have stayed in. I really don't know how this hotel is rated 5 star. Firstly, the rooms we were assigned was unkempt and smelly. My wife could not tolerate the smell in the room and the bathroom.The view was non existent, the window was overlooking the by lanes. The beds were uncomfortable,... More

Just spent almost a week in Hotel de France. Great location, excellent service... helpful staff. The hotel is located on the Ring which made it exceptionally convenient for the sightseeing ... practically there was no need to take any public transportation since all the sights were within walking distance. The room (at least the one we got ) was very... More

This hotel is reasonably centrally located but it is just another large hotel. It felt rather impersonal. The staff at the reception attempted to truly focus on the customer they were helping. However, they were woefully understaffed for that level of individualized attention, leading to a rather lengthy check-in and check-out wait.

Very impressed by the friendly service and staff! Very spacious and comfortable room with all the necessary amenities. Bed was super comfortable! I absolutely loved the breakfast selection! A bit pricey but different, good quality and delicious. The location is perfect, centrally located and across the street from the metro that can take you everywhere in Vienna. The only comment...

Hi, I just stayed at the hotel and it has a classic feel, not to new but very good. Amazing location and kind service. Breakfast is expensive if paid for extra. Lobby is nice and rooms have space, maybe the worst are the small ones at the back, but the rest is very good

Excellent central location near university and historical sites and public transport. Large room, excellent breakfast buffet. Small fitness not mentioned and not easy to find on 6th floor - little used. WiFi free but needs new name/pw each day and very slow. TV box very small. Towels not changed from previous guest on 1st day. On the 1st floor, it's... More

The hotel is in an ideal central location, with nice front and a very nice looking lobby. It is an old style building fitting in with the style of Vienna but that is where the romanticism ends. The rooms are quite large but the double room consists of two single beds pushed together which are also of very poor quality,... More

The outside of this hotel is beautiful like so many buildings in Vienna. Unfortunately, the rooms did not live up to the standard I was expecting. The staff were very helpful and friendly and professional. In our room the bath/shower were across the hall from the toilet room and both outside the main bedroom. I guess they call it a... More

Hotel de France - oddly enough didn't notice any French guests - is roomy, quiet, clean. Has lovely chandeliers in lounges. Has pianist from Bratislava playing some evenings. Bargirl, a stand-in for the holidaying regular barman, was not sure what constitutes a brandy. Our room, rather badly lit, was called a Superior Double, was only OK. I don't know what... More
