In doing our research for where to stay in Vienna, we clearly identified the Hotel Bristol as one of the premier locations in the heart of the city, and were not in any way disappointed.
We didn't think it made sense to stay in something ultra-modern (of which there is a suprising amount) in Vienna. The Bristol exudes old world charm. That being said, the rooms were very spacious, and much well layed out that any other room of similar size in which we have stayed. They were also able to guarantee us adjoining rooms, which many other hotels in the city were not able to do.
Service is simply outstanding. The bellman took care of our car when signed in, and gave us some suggestions that saved us a lot of time with regards to its return. The concierge recommended excellent restaurants and sights for us and seemed to work day and night. The front desk staff recognized us by face after only a day and were very quick to get us room keys. The cleaning staff was very prompt and efficient.
The location is superb - you are right in the heart of old town Vienna and all the sights, restaurants, and shopping you would want to visit.
It is a pricey stay, but the city tends to be pricey on the whole for lodging (more than Prague, lots less than Paris or London). If I had one critique it would be that the breakfast buffet was too pricey for our tastes (about 30 euro per person) - cannot comment on the quality since we did not end up eating there.
We will definitely stay here again.
