The Hotel Bristol is like an aging grande dame -- beautiful and elegant, but not up to date. My husband & I used points to stay 3 nights here, and as Starwood Gold members we were upgraded to a unique room (I would call it a junior suite) with separate bedroom, hallway, bathroom, and toilet; a huge amount of closet space; and a wonderful view of the Opera House next door from our small balcony. Everything was very comfortable and clean, except that we wished that the shower worked better (pressure was iffy and as there was only a small barrier over the tub, we often got water on the floor).
The location is good, being right on the Ringstrausse, with the tram right outside, the subway a five minute walk, the main Stephansdom area another five minute walk, and the Naschmarket a ten minute stroll away. However if I returned to Vienna, I might opt to stay closer to Stephansdom, to be in the midst of the action.
Service was quite friendly, with the concierge offering helpful advice on how to get around and where to go, and storing our luggage when our room wasn't ready when we arrived. However I wasn't fond of the old school room key process, where you get your room key at the front desk when you enter, and leave it there when you depart. Once they misheard me and gave me the wrong key -- doesn't seem very safe. That said, the Hotel Bristol is a very solid hotel for Vienna, and one that captures the city's unique spirit.
