nice room but expect more considering the daily rate. The bathroom has been updated with bowl sinks but they did not put the proper size faucet to go with it - you can't wash both your hands under it at the same time and the water pressure or lack thereof complicates an annoyance even further. I recommend brushing your teeth... More

A wonderful place to sit and watch the sun go down, with amazing views over the city out to the harbour. Can just sit and enjoy a drink or chose a lovely light meal from the menu. The green salad with grilled prawns was amazing. So light and fresh. 4 large juicy grilled prawns came with the salad but you... More

My husband and I decided to try the cigar night at the Hotel Viking Rooftop Deck. What a great decision!! Our meal delicious, cigars were great, the music was perfect for the setting and since i only like speciality drinks our waitress Spencer was excellent and suggested a nice martini. The bartender Lori made a great martini that i wished... More

This hotel is very well located and it is comfortable and clean. The spa is nice although a bit dated, and you have to walk by business ballrooms to get to it. Quick walk to the Wharf and short drive to the mansions. That said, I'm not a fan of old structures and some rooms can be small. Would stay... More

Well situated for exploring Newport by foot and the surrounding area by car. Rooms were of a reasonable size though the bathrooms and separate washroom were very small for two people and ridiculously small for four. Rooms were well decorated and spotless and beds very comfortable. Front of house staff were helpful, friendly and responsive to requests both prior to... More

I must begin my review by stating that it is tainted by the fact that we chose to travel to Newport in July - high season. Thus, paid VERY high season prices for our room. But even if we'd paid closer to $200+ instead of $500+, not that much would change. The hotel is older so one would expect small... More

We stayed at The Viking for 3 nights in August. This is an old and stylish hotel situated on Bellevue Ave where all the Mansions are situated on. The public areas of this hotel are very good and we had the best clam chowder we have ever tasted in the hotel dining areas. All the food was good and the... More

This is a lovely hotel located at a prestigious address. For those looking for a central location for a walking tour of Newport, the Viking is perfect. The amenities at the hotel were just what we expected. The main bar, the restaurant and the rooftop bar were all pleasant stops throughout our stay. We also enjoyed a late evening dessert... More

There's much to like about the Hotel Viking - it's located near all the downtown sites but also a short walk from the incredible homes along Bellevue Avenue, the staff are friendly and looking for ways to help you and the hotel oozes character but also has all the modern conveniences. Our room (2017) which is in the newly renovated... More

Recently stayed 1 night at the Hotel Viking for a business offsite. Room was very clean and well appointed. It had an older, classic feel to it (in a good way) that was contrasted with a more modern bathroom. Unfortunately, due to other commitments, I wasn't able to spend more time at the hotel, and when I checked out I... More
