Though the hotel has a modern exterior, the interiors of the Intercontinental Vienna are nostalgic and traditional, with brass chandeliers and wood paneling in the lobby and white linen tablecloths in the two restaurants. Rooms have an Art Deco touch with blonde wood furnishings, soft metallic window dressings and bedspreads, and subtle accents in deep orange. The fitness center, open 24 hours a day, features brand new equipment plus a steam bath and sauna. The bar, Intermezzo, serves a complete cocktail list, sometimes accompanied by live music.
In the Area
Situated on the Stadtpark (ideal for strolls or jogs in summer and ice skating in winter), the InterContinental is well located for business or leisure travelers in Vienna. Make a visit to Demel Coffee House and the Imperial Palace, where the famed Spanish Riding School trains. There are opera houses and concert halls aplenty, well worth a visit. If the grand formality of Hapsburg-era Vienna tires, check out the striking contemporary art museum MUMOK.
How to Get There
I enjoyed my stay very much.
Hotel looks a bit tired from outside - but don’t get fooled by that. Inside it is quite nice and there is a good atmosphere.
My room was located on a top floor with a great view and housekeeping was efficient and very flexible.
The club lounge was included and that made my working day so nice and easy. Staff in club lounge was fantastic and would accommodate any need.
I was in the hotel again after twenty years and it seemed to me that much has not changed. The room was large ,but there were cobwebs and strange hair in the bathroom on the ground. The kettle was a kind of brown liquid. The breakfast buffet was a great choice, but nobody came to pour me coffee in two days. Which was a pleasant surprise for me ,was the club lounge and the Tijani team. Nothing was a problem, every wish they tried to fulfill immediately with a smile. Every time if I stay in Intercontinental I have a club entry, but I haven't experienced this before, it was great
Walking distance to city centre,park in front
Rooms -small, window blinds spoilt, poorly furnished,furniture seen better days
Bathroom/toilet so small and old styled hot/cold separate taps.
When sitting on the toilet bowl, your kneecaps can get fractured if someone opens the door on you.
No standing shower cubicle.
Pillows were too low -under-stuffed. I had to use 3 pillows!
Parlor Restaurant was the saving grace -breakfast spread was very good; waiters/waitresses were very attentive and friendly.
Won't return again if they do not refurbish the rooms.
