Attractive hotel in a great location. Waking distance to everything and just by a metro stop. Great rooms with good, if compact, bathrooms. Good amenities in room and helpful service for booking restaurants etc. Would recommend. Christmas markets in Vienna were great fun.

The hotel Ring in Vienna is located, surprisingly at the ring in Vienna, a perfect location to visit down town and the most important sights. The hotel is small and nice with friendly staff, however the rooms could be a bit bigger. All in all a great place when visiting Vienna, which we enjoyed much.

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.
