How to Get There
This very expensive hotel is a really 5 star hotel. Well located, the receptionist were fast and helpful. The room was clean, spacious and had good wifi. The breakfast was excellent. Everything was at its best, but the price paid was also quite high.
We chose the Grand Hotel to celebrate our 25th anniversary animated by its excellent situation and beautiful photos hoping it was an unforgettable experience. It has been. Photos are faithful to reality, just with that style of classic luxury that we were looking for, with comfortable and quiet rooms and a large bathroom. The situation is perfect for walking to practically all the places of interest of the city centre. We only use public transport to go to Schonbrunn and the Prater. Fantastic Restaurant "Le Ciel" and very varied and very tasty breakfasts in "La Brasserie"; Bar with live music in the afternoons ... And everywhere a super attentive, helpful and friendly staff willing to help with any doubts. Even the airport transfer service is good and at an interesting price Undoubtedly a 100% recommendable hotel to which we will return in a next trip to Vienna.
Great staff...very friendly and extremely polite. Always cheerful....even the cleaners! A rarity these days. Concierge a great help with all of our queries and sorted everything even with very short notice for the opera tickets! Thomas at the front desk was a delight!
Hotel very quiet.
Would recommend to anyone!
Why did we not give 5? Because there is always room for improvement!
If you can afford a taste of luxury this is the place, right in the heart of this beautiful city.
The rooms and service are hard to match and come with all you would expect from such a hotel.
It's location is the icing on the cake.
After been to Wien for few times, I finally chose to stay at the Grand Hotel Wien for my big family.
We booked two big rooms for four nights. It was absolutely a right and best choice for all of us. Truly, namingly the grand hotel in Wien!
With its central location, many spots are just within walking distances. Tram, metros, buses are closely nearby.
Rooms are wow impressed. They are nicely decorated in every detail.
Breakfast is excellent. What I like most is incredibly their Japanese food even!
Don't miss an opera. After that opera, you walk back to the hotel and continue to enjoy a peaceful, wonderful evening.
Despite of a surrounding of "crowds", it is very quiet to stay and sleep in, regardless there is a small shopping centre right at the back door of the hotel! Don't miss it either. :)
