Great spot for sophisticated weekend in Vienna

Great location on river Wien. Could walk back to hotel from the bars/restaurants and high street. Museums and galleries are a little further out (about a 20 minute walk) but there are regular old-fashioned trams you can take which are a novelty. The bar on the 18th floor was our home from home, the staff were very friendly and the cocktails were fantastic. The room was very plush and the gym and spa meant that we could look after ourselves whilst away.

Wunderschönes verlängertes Wochenende

Das Hotel ist sehr gut gelegen und verfügt über jeglichen Komfort, den man sich für einen derartigen Aufenthalt wünschen kann. Allem voran ist die sehr freundliche und zuvorkommende Bedienung hervorzuheben.

5 Tage Eintauchen in eine Kulturstadt

Insgesamt haben diese Kurzferien den Erwartungen durchaus entsprochen. Es gab jedoch einige Schönheitsfehler, welche wir vor Ort vorbringen konnten. Besonders gefallen hat uns das sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Personal: gelebte Gastfreundschaft.

Geniales Hotel an einer super Lage

Wir können über das Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom überhaupt nichts negatives sagen. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr zuvorkommend und äusserst Freundlich. So stelle ich mir den Service in einem Hotel vor. Die Zimmer sind genügend gross und sehr modern eingerichtet. Das Bett war sehr bequem und das offene Bad war mal was Neues..:-) Gerne kommen wir wieder in dieses Hotel..

Super Hotel an super Lage!

Mein Mann und ich haben eine kurze Städtereisen nach Wien gemacht. Wir haben uns im ganzen Hotel (Zimmer, Spabereich, Restaurant) sehr wohl gefühlt und haben uns vom freundlichen Personal willkommen gefühlt. Das ganze Hotel ist sehr sauber und gepflegt! Würde wieder im Sofitel übernachten.
