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
First I have to say that the staff of this hotel is excellent. They are so helpful and always smiling. Then, the lobby area is grand and beautiful. Our room was bigger than normal, a comfortable and quiet. The only thing I would change in the room is the carpet, it was not my favorite and it had stains.
The fitness center was great and open 24/7. The Club lounge is worth the money and the staff is super BUT in other InterContinental club lounges children under 16 years are not allowed in the evenings but in Vienna InterCon they were allowed. Should the rules be same everywhere?
Hotel location is good as it is 10 mins walk from the busy center.
In overall, thank you. See you perhaps soon again.
I really liked the staff here. And the lobby was very comfortable. Across the street from a nice park and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The room was designed poorly. Had to watch TV side ways which I really can't stand. Otherwise, the bed was comfortable, bathroom OK. All in all a pleasant stay for one night only.
We greatly enjoyed out time at the Intercontinental in Vienna. The location is perfect for walking all around the city. The staff, both front desk and in the cafe, were very helpful and friendly. I heard many languages in the lobby and truly enjoyed the view from my room! The hotel feels a bit outdated, but that is also part of its charm. Would stay again.
