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.

Tolles Hotel in bester Lage

Das Hotel ist perfekt für einen Städtetrip. Es liegt wenige Gehminuten von der U-Bahn Station Schwedenplatz entfernt, der Stephansdom ist gut zu Fuss erreichbar. Wir hatten ein graues Zimmer mit tollem Ausblick Richtung Stadt. Das Personal ist top, zuvorkommender geht nicht mehr.

Zentrale Lage, sehr gute ÖV-Anbindung

Pros: Die Freundlichkeit des Personals.
Cons: Lichtsteuerung in der Suite ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.
Location: Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom
Wir haben den Aufenthalt im Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom über Silvester/Neujahr sehr genossen. Atemberaubende Sicht aus dem Zimmer (Suite im 13. Stock) & beim Frühstück bzw. Abendessen im Restaurant (18. Stock). Sehr gute Empfehlungen für externe Lokale durch den Concierge. Wohlfühltage in Wien mit hohem Wiederholungsfaktor.

Excellentes Hotel in Wien

An diesem Hotel gibt es nichts auszusetzen. Freundlicher und zuvorkommender service ohne steif und kalt zu wirken. Top Lage 10min vom stephansplatz und 100m von der nächsten u-bahnstation. Mit der rooftop bar/restaurant ein juwel.

High quality hotel in good location

Pros: The service in general was good quality. The reception on arrival was excellent and extremely polite. Loft restaurant upstairs was an experience.
Cons: One of the congierces was a bit rude and could improve customer service attitude. She did her job, but attitude was a bit skewed.
Location: Location was good and next to subway, which is the easiest (and cost effective) method to move around in Vienna.
I spent a few days in this hotel with wife. We enjoyed the leisures of black suite.
