We checked into the Bristol in Vienna and were disappointed by the condition of the interior. The rugs in the lobby needed cleaning and the smell was not so great!

I admit, I cashed in my Starwood points to stay here as the room rates are hefty - location, location! Just across the street from the Opera House and steps away from Saint Stephan's Cathedral, this is actually a great base location for exploring Vienna. The interior of the hotel somewhat transports you back to a Baroque golden age and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was a great experience. The hotel is at the perfect location, right across the opera, 10 mins walk to all major attractions in the old city center, and convenient to all public transport. Recognized as a SPG Gold member, we were upgraded to an Executive Room. The room is big, clean, comfortable,... More

We loved everything about this hotel! It is in the centre of the city, the rooms are a good size, well furnished and very comfortable, breakfast has a huge selection of foods plus a chef who will cook your eggs any way you like (great omellettes!) and a dining room the equal of a good restaurant. To this, add a... More

Hotel Bristol in Vienna is located right next to the Opera House and very central. The metro station is literally right next to the hotel. A few steps away from the hotel is the main shopping area, and Cafe Sacher (famous cafe) is 3 min away. The amenities provided by the hotel were great and the service was great. Overall... More

This hotel occupies a prime corner directly across from the Opera House, and within walking distance of the area around St. Stephens and some of the big museums. There is also a subway stop directly in front of the hotel and a tram stop across the street, so it's well located for sightseeing. The hotel is also older, so it... More

This is a really good hotel located right next to the Opera, so it does not get any better. The service is out of this world. The vibe of the hotel is really classic, so you really feel the Vienna imperial vibe.

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.
