The reception was very helpful and had great sense of humor (which is welcomed)! The executive room was spacious and the bed was comfy, but it would be better to renovate without losing its character and old charm. Besides the bathroom was a bit narrow for that kind of room. It was nice to see welcome fruit plate and mineral/still... More

I booked the Hotel Bristol largely based on the reviews I’ve read here. I spent 5 nights at this hotel in August 2016 using SPG points and was upgraded to a room with a balcony and view of the Opera House. The hotel is centrally located and we found ourselves walking to the pedestrian shopping area daily even though shops... More

We recently checked into Hotel Bristol for two nights. Our very large, spacious room overlooked the Opera House. The breakfast each morning had a massive selection to choose from. The concierge team did an outstanding job in suggesting what sites to see and where to dine that made our stay very memorable. On our last morning, our flights had been... More

We really enjoyed our 5 nights spent here. The Hotel oozes with old world elegance and refinement. While our rooms felt a bit dated and could use a facelift, everything was clean and in good condition. Our rooms faced the opera house and we really enjoyed the view both day and night. The location is perfect. The staff was attentive... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
