Very designed and stylish hotel, big and well equipped room which provides amazing views over Vienna, excellent dinner/drinks and lovely staff at Das Loft!!! Area for improvement: the staff of front desk are really cold Disappointing: spa shutdown due to Covid-19, whereas other hotels kept theirs open at the same time

Dear 376lucasl, Thank you for your positive feedback! We are delighted that you fully enjoyed the room's facilities and our services, especially at our Das LOFT bar. Your nice words are very much appreciated and have been shared with the team. However, I regret the welcome you experienced at our reception. Our Just Say SO Manager has been informed and will review your comment with his team. Please accept our apologies. Indeed, we decided to keep our spa closed after the reopening in June due to a low demand in summer. (Massages and treatments were available with a reservation until 24h in advance.) We will now reopen our wellness area this Saturday September 12th. Our spa team is looking forward to prepare our guests a relaxing moment again. We hope to welcome you back soon at SO/ Vienna. Kind regards, Christian Klaus General Manager SO/ Vienna

Hotel's Favorite
Arrived on 5th March. We had booked a white suite. Room was on 14th floor woth great views over the north of the city overlooking the fairground. The concierge got us 2 amazing tickets for Turandot at the Stadsoper despite them being sold out online for the one show on the evening of our arrival. Wasn’t cheap, but worth it. The Das Loft is amazing for breakfast and the house music on Friday night was good. The staff were all lovely and our room spotless. (It was white and any marks will show) Bed very comfortable. Vienna is a beautiful city. This hotel is well worth staying at. We wanted to eat out. The staff told us to try Figl Muller. Great advice. Would absolutely go back. I have posted views from room and Das Loft.

I stayed here for two nights last week and the hotel accommodation is clear, spacious and really much nicer than the photos portray. It was a nice stay... However, as with any brand, loyalty is significant. The refusal to reward points when booked through their direct sales channel cannot be accepted - there were issues with the membership setup, but that is not my problem. I regularly book through IHG, Marriott and Hilton and this kind of thing does not happen. I will close my account and stick to these better known brands. This forms part of the service and therefore rather disappointingly affects my score above. *Be warned also that the credit card is still showing a $500 payment (assumed to be a 'hold') many days after check out. If this doesn't disappear soon then I'll invoke a charge back AND query what this payment is actually for. Overall, the hotel was a delight, but this management side is not good enough. Their statements about service on their site are obviously dubious given this experience. Very unfortunate experience for a seasoned traveller.

Dear BenS6169, Thank you for sharing your feedback after your stay at SO/ Vienna! We are glad that you enjoyed the modern room design and the room's facilities. However, it is regrettable that you had the impression that we didn't reward the points according to your stay. Our Just Say SO Manager checked your account and the points already had been credited automatically. It can take up to 3/4 days until you see the rewarded points on your account. Please accept our apologies if the team didn't inform you correctly about the procedure. We will review the relevant standards with the team for providing a better service to our guests. Our Just Say SO Manager also look into the deposit issue. The deposit has been released after check-out. Depending on your bank’s policy, the release can take several days. Unfortunately, we have no influence on this period of time. We kindly apologize for the inconveniences and we hope to welcome you back soon with us in order to convince you of our high service level. Kind regards, SO/ Vienna Management

Fabulous hotel with possibly the best views of Vienna. The breakfast was fantastic, offering both “à la carte” and buffet. The bar is also very cool at night. Rooms are of a high standard, very clean and design. The bed was incredibly comfortable. However, the lobby is not as clean and comfortable as you might expect it to be in a 5-star hotel. This is of course an amazing place to stay and I would indeed recommend it, but I have seen better 5-star hotels for the same price.

From start to finish our stay at So Vienna was exceptional. Staff were welcoming and friendly, our room was large and comfortable with an amazing view of Vienna. Breakfast in Das Loft was superb. The hotel is centrally located accessible to public transport or to explore Vienna on foot. Taxi from the airport was €50 each way. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and enjoyed visiting the beautiful city of Vienna. We will definitely return.
