I booked this hotel as I have previously stayed at The Grand and this hotel is under the same ownership. Whilst the Grand is a traditional luxury hotel The Ring is a modern Luxury hotel. I was a bit concerned about some of the reviews and wondered if I should have booked The Grand again but I needn't have worried. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
Our room wasn't huge but the separate dressing area, large bathroom and separate WC made it feel much bigger. The room was really well maintained and clean and had everything we needed. the White Company toiletries were topped up each day.
There was a well stocked mini bar and complimentary bottled water on the first day, this was not refreshed each day but the tap water was completely safe to drink.
The location is brilliant, right by the Opera House and the Museum Quarter and a short walk from the cathedral. There is a subway station (Karlsplatz) very close by which got me to my meetings near Praterstern in 20 mins max.
The breakfast was pricey but the a la carte option meant you only paid for what you had, if you wanted a cheaper option there is a cafe right opposite where you can get breakfast for approx 5 Euro.
i would definitely return to The Ring and would recommend it.
