Bristol Hotel

By: Missy

Really enjoyed the Bristol in Vienna. It's very well located next to the Opera House and right by bus, tram and subway. Concierge was very helpful. We had breakfast in the dining room everyday, which was great. Had some rain when we were there in June and the hotel lets you use their big golf umbrellas.

Hotel Bristol is a lovely, old world hotel centrally located in Vienna, next to the Opera House. The service was very good, food and car are excellent. I do think it's time for a refresh in the rooms with more updated decor and furnishings that were a little tired. Overall a great experience though!

Relaxing & Luxurious

My wife and I were very pleased by the The Bristol. The room, the location, the service, everything was wonderful. With the Opera House view, what more can you ask for in Vienna. The bedding and the traditional decor were all quite luxurious and the staff works hard to maintain that throughout. They are all very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. Never have my wife and I wanted to stay in the hotel room just to stay in and relax as much as we did while in Vienna. It's all very comfortable and we found ourselves wanting to enjoy it. For what was offered, I thought it was a great deal. I've stayed in other major cities in Europe and in the US that costed much more but offered no where near what The Bristol does. If we ever go back, I would certainly consider staying here again.

Hotel Bristol

When we first chose Hotel Bristol before starting our trip, my concern was the cost in regards to our budget. Looking back, it was one of the better choices we made. The entire staff was extremely pleasant to be around and helpful from the minute we reached the door till we went to bed at night and the amenities were manifold. The room had an amazing view of Vienna’s skyline and the hotel itself was perfectly situated on “The Ring” so we were able to walk to fifteen to twenty sights on our “must see” list as well as be very close to shopping and restaurants of all types. We even sat and ate while enjoying a performance at the Opera House because they put it on a screen for public view. The history of the hotel and the people who have stayed there made it a place of interest itself, no spoiler of who. The Metro is just twenty meters away from the front door which made getting to and from places like Schloosburg Palace and the Danube inexpensive, quick, and safe. Stay at Hotel Bristol!

Beautiful hotel, superb location, great history

By: Brenda J

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Bristol and loved the central location, walking distance to the Cathedral and center, opposite the Opera. We loved our room and also enjoyed standing on the balcony at night watching the crowds come and go and watching the "Love Parade" go by on the weekend we stayed. The dining room was lovely and breakfasts and lunch very good. Of particular note are the "cooked to order" breakfast options and the bread selection. We are still waiting to get resolution of credit cards that were charged unnecessarily because the hotel IT system had problems with a pre-paid travel card. But other than this, the hotel was a luxurious and lovely haven whilst travelling.

Beautiful old world hotel with loads of character and wonderful staff. This hotel was in a great location close to everything. The restaurant was lovely too. We had an inside room which at first I was disappointed about but on reflection it was probably a good thing as this hotel is across the road from the Opera House which was celebrating its 150th year so there was lots of people and noise outside the hotel. One disappointment was that there is smoking allowed in the bar at the hotel. This therefore ruled us out to use it.

We had a wonderful four-night stay at the Bristol. It is so centrally located we could walk to everything. The staff was very gracious. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning and had lunch at the restaurant one day - everything was delicious. Would definitely stay again!

I would recommend the Hotel Bristol, but we did have a few problems. The complimentary lunch was not available to us until later than expected so we were not able to enjoy our desserts and had to rush to get to the AmaWaterways location.

Hotel Bristol

Beautiful property in an excellent location. Room was lovely as were the public areas of the hotel. While I would recommend the hotel, I felt the service was somewhat lacking. Our reservation included a lunch in the hotel’s restaurant and trying to make a reservation was quite frustrating. Once we were seated for lunch, service was on the slow side and we had to leave before our dessert was served as we had a car waiting to take us to the cruise ship. Since this hotel has a reputation for top notch service, I will assume that our experience was not the norm.
