“a very nice 5 star hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went at grand hotel wien at december , 2010, only for one evening. It is a very nice hotel, at very central point.Our room was big, with a marvelus bathroom . The decoration and the colours at the room are very nice. When we arrived, they gave us another room , but we did not liked and they changed with the new one which was super ! the breakfast was delicious, it has everything! one of the best we have ever eat. The only problem we had was the cold water at the evening. They told us that was a problem for the hole hotel and next day will be o.k.but, next morning we left. Anyway, we want to be back at wien and stay again to grand hotel wien ! when we were leaving, the manager Stepfanie, came oyt ,to our taxi and gave us her card , because she listen that maybe loose our plain because we had to wait 30 minutes for chec out.But she apologized,so everything is o.k.

Room Tip: ask for a deluxe room.

Dear Avgerini G ,
thank you very much for your comment you posted on the Tripadvisor website regarding your recent stay at the Grand Hotel Wien.
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our facilities as well our services. I do apologize that we had indeed some issues with our water system that night. We were confident that could solve it within a couple of hours but had to experience that the issue was larger than expected. I am very sorry for that.
We thank you very much for your comments and we are looking forward serving you in the future.
With kindest regards from Vienna ,

Yours respectfully

It was a difficult decision to choose hotels in this city. There are at least 5 hotels with character. Finally decided to stay in the Grand hotel and dine at Imperial and have the torte at Sacher. The lobby has the old world charm and service was impeccable. Their special guglhupf cake was one of the items in the buffet breakfast and huge portions were gulped down without any remorse or guilt as this cake is only available there. The location is central and it is the ideal place to stay. The opera house and other attractions are all in walking distance from the hotel. A very good experience.

From start to finish, this was a truly memorable experience. Although there were minor flaws - the dry-cleaning service was undergoing some technical difficulties, the internet was very slow, and the exchange rates were stressful - the quality, atmosphere, and sevice was perfect for us. We will be happy to stay again.

This hotel retains its old fashioned style and charm, the room was lovely, spacious and well equipped. we had a room at the rear of the hotel which was quieter but be aware there is a night club directly opposite which is open at the weekends but as we were not there then i am not sure what the noise level is like. Le ciel restaurant serves wonderful food and if you can sit in the private painted dining room even better. The doormen though rather let down the hotel on the service front. There are also large conference groups here.

What a lovely hotel. Full of character. Chandeliers everywhere. Beds are so comfortable and a good nights sleep was had by all. The service was exceptional and to top it all the mouthwatering restaurant on the 7th floor, Le Ciel (see separate review). I cant say that it is the best Hotel in Vienna because I have not stayed in all of them, but one thing is for sure, when I come back to Vienna it will be here that I will stay!
