Spending Christmas at the Vienna Grand Hotel was a very poor choice. We booked via Booking.com nine (9) consecutive nights between December 18th and 27th, 2020 - and we even left earlier, as the poor room standards and the lousy service were unbearable. The curtains aren’t closing, as they are ripped from their mechanisms. The electric sun shades aren’t functioning. The hairdryer is broken, the heating system is extremely noisy, the beddings are old and used. The duvet is poorly thin and worn down. The light situation in the room is far too dim and the quality of the amenities a total disgrace. Due to the pandemic situation all restaurants were closed, but what five star hotel is operational without even a room service? If you want to have a coffee or a croissant in the morning, they ask you to get to reception level and serve yourself or to get your own groceries at the adjacent shopping mall. There is only one small street access that is open, and whenever you enter or leave the Grand Hotel Vienna, there is one of their employees standing right there smoking a cigarette. All you smell is tobacco smoke and you feel like entering or exiting an ashtray. Three times entering the building we felt like we are not welcome and disturbing the bored employees. Once one employee even yelled “yes pleaaaase?” Standing in our way - just as if he wanted to chase us away. On Christmas Eve it took one other employee 8 minutes to open the locked door, while we stood in the cold and then he didn’t even wish us merry Christmas. And last but not least, when we came in with shopping bags one employee said “how can I help you?” and I replied “can you please help me handle these bags to carry up to my room?” and so the receptionist said “ah, you are staying with us!” and he turned around hiding again in his back office - without giving me a hand. Housekeeping didn’t vacuum once in eight days and the bed cover wasn’t replaced properly ever on the bed. When we once ordered food to be delivered from a nearby restaurant it was brought up to our room in the restaurant’s ripped paper bag - although we saw other rooms get their deliveries brought up on room service tables with proper hotel cutlery. This didn’t make us feel welcome at all. At Christmas one friendlier receptionist told us that he had sent up a Christmas gift to the room. Expectations weren’t high, but see for yourself what we received: three pieces of chocolate, one apple and a mandarin. Not even a Christmas card. Better don’t mention such a gift on Christmas Eve at a five star hotel, if it is such a crap! Although we always said that we don’t know how many nights we will be staying - but our maximum stay could be nine nights, they didn’t arrange for a refund of the last night, as we checked out after eight nights. At check out no one asked if we did enjoy our stay. I guess they probably know why not bothering asking. This hotel needs refurbishment, a much kinder and more welcoming attitude and their lack in service is unprecedented in five star hotels. Honestly there is huge room for improvement. Management must be very tired after 9 months of inexistent tourism during the pandemic and this exhaustion is just shameful.

Dear fivestarexpert1, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for choosing the Grand Hotel Wien for your recent stay with us. I sincerely do apologize for the inconveniences you had to experience during your stay with us. Please rest assured that I had a close look into all aspects of your feedback which you posted here on Tripadvisor. I am terribly sorry that one of the sun shades was not functioning and that one of the curtains was hanging loose. However with all the respect I can not recall a non funtional hairdryer nor did I realize a noisy air conditioning (not even with an open door to the rooms hallway). I regret to read about these circumstances in your room.But I am confident that we would have been able to solve these issues right on the spot if you would have told us about it during your stay which did not happen at all I am afraid. In terms of the particular reservation I would like to point out that you have been informed by my staff in advance that the Grand Hotel Wien does not offer any room service, any restaurant service and just limited housekeeping service (one service per day, no turndown service) during these times, due to the current lockdown in Austria and the actual Covid 19 rules and regulations by the Austrian government. You have been informed as well prior to your arrival that we do offer a complementary coffee station as well as croissants for our in house guests staying on business purposes only. Internal records do show that your room was serviced each day except for December 25th 2020, due to your do not disturbed sign.However I will certainly speak to our Executive Housekeeper in order to make sure that a proper service accompanying the current Covid 19 rules and regulations is being made. In regards to your food delivery during your stay I would like to mention that we are currently not allowed to unwrap deliveries from the outside again due to the current COVID 19 rules and regulations. We are allowed to send plates and cutlery to the guest rooms and we do so upon request. I certainly do apologize if we neglected to deliver these items to your room while receiving your outside food. I will follow up on the incident in the eve of December 24th as I do not understand why we have been unable to open the door for several minutes. But at no time it was the intention to make you not feel welcomed. I received feedback from the Front Desk staff that the staff indeed was asking for your comfort and if there was anything we could do for you. We received your feedback that everything was fine. In terms of the mentioned refund I would like to state that any changes to the last three nights would have led into another price category for these nights. And would have ended in a higher total sum as you made the arrangement with a booking channel on a special rate which was non- refundable.IPlease allow me to point out that you received a double upgrade for your stay as the reservation was original made for our standard category. Again I do apologize for the inconveniences that were caused and I ensure you that I will do my utmost to prevent situations like these in the future. In case I can be of any assistance do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I wish you and your family a happy new year and most of all, lots of health in these demanding times. With best regards, Horst Mayer General Manager

Reserved a room at a rate which I could later cancel at 394.00 EUR per night. They repeatedly told me I could not cancel the room when I told them we could not travel due to COVID-19 restrictions. All other hotels throughout our planned visit had no issues cancelling our rooms and refunding our money.
