“Mixing new and old: modern hotel near all historic landmarks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2011

WOW! Stayed 8 days, including New Years. Pleasant staff, clean quiet rooms. Perfect location, in middle of the action. 1 minute to u-bahn. WALK: near most landmarks: Albertina museum, Hofburg palace, Opera, St Stephens cathedral. WALK: near great shopping on Kartnerstrasse and KohlMarket. Near great restos: try Weibels Wirthaus for typical Austrian meal and Artner for a high-end luxury experience. Day trip to Grinzig (vineyards) well worth it. Visited Hotel Bristol, Hotel Sacher, Hotel Imperial, Le Meridien, all close by BUT I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AT THE RING AGAIN.

After flying for a hideous 24 hours, we were so thankful to be able to collapse in our hotel rooms at The Ring! Although we arrived early, the staff were very attentive to our needs and promptly arranged rooms that were available for us to check into. The best thing about this hotel is the wonderful location - this was a major highlight for us as it was so cold outside we didn't have to travel far to get to the major attractions. The beds were very comfortable, but, to be honest, some stuffing in the pillows wouldn't go astray! They were so flat and no alternative pillows were available so we used the decorative ones instead. I know some people like slimmer pillows but.. come on! Aside from this, what we really loved was the complimentary Nespresso coffee that was refilled everyday - we were all very addicted to it by the end of our stay. Another positive element of our stay was the random surprises that we found in our room every now and then. One day we were given complimentary donuts and the next we received some chocolate truffles. Pillows aside, there was really nothing to fault The Ring hotel - it was great.

Dear 'travellertonkes', a very good combination, having snow outside and drinking a hot Nespresso coffee in your room@The Ring. Your review is indeed a great one, many thanks. I am happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, I will look at the pillows in the rooms, never received any comments on those but they might need some extra stuffing. Looking forward welcoming you again in the near future. Best regards!

I stayed here in December for my honeymoon, I selected this hotel because of the casual luxury and location. The deciding factor however was the staff who were very helpful and attentive and went above and beyond to ensure that we had the most amazing stay at their hotel. They didn't even hesitate in moving my booking when I had to reschedule due to all the snow.

The hotel itself is fantastic with large clean rooms, very comfy beds, underfloor heating in the bathrooms and lovely furnishings. There is free internet in the lobby and a very nice restaurant and wine seller which offers tastings.

Be sure to try the bar which is recommended in Lonely Planet, I very much enjoyed their beren punsh which went down very well on a cold Decembers evening. They aren't short on the measures either!

Another must is the gym, sauna and steam room located on the 7th floor. Although small it is generally not made the most of by the guests and so a great place to relax for a while before venturing out in the evening.

The location is great being only 1 minute walk from the state opera, 5 minutes from the Town Hall & main Christmas Market, main high street and St Stephens.

If I was forced to say anything negative it would only be the price of the movies to rent and the amount of English channels available but then that's not why you go to Vienna or stay at the Ring hotel.

The best hotel i have stayed in.

A big thank you to Carl & Helen.

Dear 'Colin-78', I thank you very much for this wonderful review. It seems to me that your stay could not have been more perfect, I do agree on the prices for the movies to rent, I will look into this and I must say that I never had a comment on the limited number of englisch channels, I will also look into this. I must admit that we did do a great job and made your trip (a honeymoon trip) to an unforgettable one, for which I also thank our staff. Looking forward welcoming you again@The Ring in the near future. Best regards!

Large rooms, fine modern design.
Very good location.
Wonderful bar, nice atmosphere.
Very nice to have the breakfast in the room; the service can be improved ( come back to what used to be one year ago )
All over, our place to stay.

One of the best hotels I've stayed in to date. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and I was warned about the bed - that it was very comfortable and I might have issues getting up in the morning. They were right I slept, the bed you seemed to float on and the duvet made you very cozy. The room was eloquently furnish and had a walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and separate toilet (which I really like the idea of). When I travel to any hotel the one aspect I don't like is when they give you small towels - The Ring did not let me down, the towels was bathsheet size, with the hotel name embossed on it. The bathroom also had underfloor heating, twin sinks and a well size bath tub with a monsoon shower head. In the wardrobe room there was ample room for clothes, also the mini-bar, safe and refreshment centre complete with complementary bottled water and a nespresso machine. The view from the room was of the courtyard area. The hotel has an in-house bar and restaurant, again the staff were extremely welcoming. What did impress me about the restaurant was the chef , he's only 23 and produces some superb mouthwatering dishes. Also the restaurant has two themes, in the morning it's has a bright deco and fabrics, then in the evening the restaurant re-dresses and the decor is more intimate and warm.

This was my first trip to Vienna, certainly not my last, and The Ring is no 1 on my list of places to stay when I next return
