“Location on the Vienna ring is outstanding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We went over our budget but had a gorgeous corner suite with shopping, eating and transportation right outside the hotel. The window open for fresh air and a view, but the tram goes around the side and directly in front of the hotel. Sound proofing is pretty good however.

The rooms are very pleasant and confortable. Nice shower! Very nice size room with high cellings and good beds.
We didn't have the breakfast at the hotel, but wen't for a Sacher Breakfast in the Sacher Eck café (the entrance on the left side of the Sacher Hotel when facing it), at EUR 9.50, a 5min walk away from the hotel, which was good and part of the Vienna experience.
We will certainly return to the Ring Hotel if we come back to Vienna and tell our firends to do so also.

There is no some kinda design stuff or something extraordinary. Just simplicity and quality. Good service. Great location. Just 3 minutes from opera. quite recently rebuild. Sometimes there are some places so you can say wow, sometimes there are some places you would say "Ugh". This place doesnt make any emotions: Simple, quality, well managed but nothing more

Stayed at The Ring for 5 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Visiting Vienna to see the Spanish Riding School has been a wish of mine for about 40 years, what a treat to fulfil such a dream! Hotel is in a great location and we didn't use public transport once - able to walk to everywhere we wanted to. Air con in room is very noisy and we couldn't work out how to use it / change it, so we switched it off and opened the windows instead. However couldn't sleep for the noise of trams and traffic outside, then room way too hot with no ventilation. However the bed was just lovely, huge and with lovely fresh linen each day. TV is very limited for English visitors - BBC world is the only option, some free films but most cost 18 euro which seemed a bit steep. Room service meals (breakfast and 2 snacks) were beautifully presented, hot and delicious. We are not regular 5* hotel visitors but thoroughly enjoyed our break at The Ring.

Dear blowin,

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am terribly sorry that we couldn't meet your expectations regarding the air conditioning, the TV and the fact, that you couldn't sleep because of the outside noise.
Otherwise I am very happy to hear that our beds were so comfortable and that you liked our beautifuly presented room service dishes.

I would be very pleased if you could give us a second chance to improve our services and fullfill your expectations.

Warm regards from Vienna

Very central lication. Surprisingly we had a 2rooms suit for only 270 eur a night. Restaurant downstairs is also great. Staff is friendly - would recommend for staying in Vienna. Great walk around the center and easy access to most interesting attractions

The Ring is a wonderful base for experiencing Christmas in Vienna. I am hard pressed to find any faults with the hotel. It was exactly what I expected based on the other rave reviews. The location is fantastic. It is close to Christmas markets, very good restaurants, historical monuments, museums, and the shopping district. The room was clean, large, and comfortable with good water pressure in the shower. The staff was extremely helpful and engaging, but not overbearing. The hotel also has a classical ambiance to it that feels ideal for such a historical and beautiful city. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel.

We travelled to Vienna to celebrate our wedding anniversary in December. We arrived to a lovely staff team who helped us with our bags and informed us of the facilties at the hotel before we were shown to our room. The room we had was stunning! Classy decoration, large soft towels, turn down service and great little extras provided in the room. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant as we spent our evening wandering around the Christmas market, it was the weekend before Christmas so it was a must. However the restaurant was always busy and very popular. The hotel is well situated and everything was in walking distance. There is a tram stop just down the road from the hotel if you wanted to take it easy.

We spent the most of day out and about Vienna and soaking up the Christmas atmosphere in the markets. It was made even more exciting and magical by having snow!

While we were away my husband became unwell. The hotel staff were support and attentive to our needs. When I next come to VIenna......I will be coming back!!!
