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
Lovely hotel next to Stadtpark within walking distance of all the main attractions in central Vienna City. Impressive exterior and lobby area with classy bar area great for spending time at night after exploring during the day or when waiting for transports. We stayed in the classic room booked through Hotels.com. The room was cosy and clean, with enough space for 2 people, overlooking the park. Bathroom was slightly small, with the door almost hitting the toilet when fully open. The shower was over a bathtub with a non-slip mat provided. Stayed here in the middle of January.
The hotel has an excellent location opposite the beautiful Stadtpark and across the road from the metro station. It is also centrally located a short walk from the Old Town and near the Weiner Konzerthaus with Karlsplatz metro station just one stop away. Between the hotel and the Konzerthaus is an open space which hosts an ice-rink in the winter and transforms into a beach area (Sand in the City) featuring a wide variety of restaurants and bars in the summer months.
The hotel has a wide variety of dining options - Café Vienna in the lobby serves an excellent high tea and snacks during the day and you can enjoy drinks in the evening in the Intermezzo bar with live music. The large Parlor restaurant serves an excellent International Buffet breakfast and has an excellent menu for dinner.
The concierge is excellent and can book tickets to performances and tours around Vienna. Renata at the reception staff was very helpful.
The hotel has a classic deco with heavy wood paneling and huge chandeliers in the lobby and will appeal to the more classically inclined. It is also pretty busy and gets full pretty fast. So make sure to book well in advance.
Overall, this is one of the best places to stay in Vienna and is highly recommended.
Intercontinental is already a standard which is religiously respected by the hotels from the network.
So, great comfort, excellent service it comes with the brand. Particular for Vienna is the excelent position, 10 minutes walk from Stephan’s Dom and from Plachutta.
We’ll be back here every time we’ll come to Vienna
Stayed here for five nights for business. They upgraded me to the club floor due to me platinum elite status. Nice touch.
However room had a funny smell from toilet so they moved me to a deluxe room on the same floor. Along with a box of chocolates. Nice! Very kind.
However during my stay their WiFi crashed once. No tele for most of last night and his am. This is not something I expect from a five star hotel. The hotel reminds me a grand old lady. Seen better days and need from tender loving care!
Breakfast was quite chaotic due to large number of conference attendees. However they serve congee and miso soup. Amazing.
It is supposed to be one of the first class hotels. However, during our stay, there was a party going on late at night in the bar near the reception. It was turned into a kind of disco with loud music that could be heard even in my room. It continued after midnight and hindering my sleep. Though my friend made conplaints, they didn't stop. Very bad service to staying guests.
