Editorial review:

Each room of this historic property Hotel Bristol, Vienna is decorated in a very vivid and grand style. Have a vision of Biedermeier-style furniture, gold, and petit fours. Despite the lavish décor, the rooms are actually quite comfortable, and this Innere Stadt hotel has a good feel. If that is not enough, Chef Reinhard Gerer will create Austrian-French entrees to satisfy your taste buds.

                the location and the hotel it self were outstanding. for anyone who likes big classic hotels it is highly recommended. Everyone among the staff were very helpful for any guest request.

                I have stayed at the 5th floor where the window was blocked by a huge concrete parapet. that is why the view was limited. secondly i was not happy about the running water. the hot/cold water was not at a 5 star hotel quality, having a shower you have a little bit of cold water, then hot water then cold water again. i hope they sort this out as i mentioned this problem to the reception on my way out. otherwise there is not much not to like at the Bristol in Vienna.

                Excellent location, preserved old design of the hotel, comfortable room.

                Very hard to find anything that could downgrade hotel.

                Generally, I liked the hotel. It's a tipical grand hotel with marble bathroom and fabric panels on the walls, if you like this kind of style. The friend of mine ordered club sandwich from the room service and said it was the best club sandwich ever. Perfect location for everything.

                I was upgraded from regular delux room to the penthouse delux room, the official price for which is 989 euros per night (number 665). It's spacious, but has only one window, wich makes it really dark. There are some strange things for the hotel of this level: you cannot set proper temperature in the shower, it's changing from cold to very hot every 2 seconds, and back; on saturday morning at 8.30 mades started to chat in the hallway (actually, to screem), so i had to get out to ask them to keep silent; room service breakfast came without sugar for my coffee, wich means that nobody checks a table before it leaves the kitchen. Restaurant Korso does have weird furniture, especially chairs, it looks like wooden teeth (food is of a good quality, but nothing special).

                It is very close to the center and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful

                The Bristol is no longer what it used to be. The breakfast room is moved from the terrace to a dark room, and its selection is very poor for a 5 star hotel. No swimming pool or sauna, you have to pay for the internet (just a bad taste in the mouth). anyhow, it is not moving ahead with time and competition but trying to live off the name. It is a shame, as we used to like it a lot, but it was the last time we went there. For the money they ask, it is not worth it.

                Very nice hotel, excellent location. Clean and comfortable rooms/

                Staff at reception was not as polite and respectful as we had expected for luxuruos collection hotel.

                Once I arrived, I found The Holy Quran, Siyada, and Qibla praying compass placed on the bed! I was very happy to see this gesture from the hotel for us as Muslims guests. Hotel Bristol got the best receptionists and concierge staff, they were very kind, friendly, helpful and polite. The location was amazing, just 1 minute walk to the main shopping district "Kartner Strasse" and just next to the opera house. The location couldn't be better. The room service was superb, they cleand our room/toilet twice a day and provided us with 2 bottles of water, chocolate fruits daily and sometimes twice a day. The room were spacious and comfy. We used their Limo service from and to the airport, it costed us 52€ (from the airport) and 45€ (to the airport) the car was new and clean (mercedes benz e200 2012) and they were waiting us on time.

                The only thing that I disliked about Hotel Bristol was the Internet, it wasn't free and costed too much (I don't recall how much exactly) and even at the lobby (which was small but very nice and cosy) they don't provide a free wi-fi. So I had to walk to Starbucks and McDonald's and the good thing was they were minuets away just few steps.

                Offered to book Opera tickets with a mark-up of 30%. Hotel restaurant was supposed to be open until 23.00 we called to book a table at 10.30 and arrived at 10.45 but they informed us that they had already closed.

                Location in very centre of town. Spacious beautiful room for major part of stay.

                Room at beginning of our stay was not as luxuryous as suggested by photo on Booked.net. After asking this was changed. Though high class hotel, nevertheless some mundane services like a cup of tea or internet usage seem highly overpriced. Service was not always consistent and discovered dust in room (cupboards).
