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
Stayed here as part of my employer’s conference. Excellent location centrally in Vienna. Surrounded by the business district and access to the shopping areas. Courteous staff and great food. Will definitely come back here. Johannesgasse is very addictive.
The hotel is dated was one of the first 5 star hotels in Vienna Hotel is ok service is slow and not really friendly looks like the have al too much to do and do not really care. Especially the outside doormen do not help or are standing together inside ad let customers carry there suitcases by themselves same at the front desk. Overall can be better.
The InterContinental Wien Hotel is located in the heart of Historic Vienna, footsteps from its parks and other attractions. From the high floors, the views of the city are amazing and unique. The staff of the hotel is very welcoming and friendly. The Club Intercontinental Hotel Lounge is a great place to have breakfast and snacks, as well as a nice tea time.
Clearly not the most beautiful hotel in the world from outside, which is a rather strange thing in pretty Vienna. But then it is a very good hotel, spatious rooms fitted with all the essentials (including kettle, hairdryer etc) and the price is ok.
Convenient location next to the Stadtpark, Konzerthsus and wiener musikverein.
Good breakfast, but tends to get really busy at morning rush hours which means that you may queue to be seated.
Very nice and professional staff at the reception and in general as well.
I admit to a little trepidation after reading some of the reviews. I am happy to report that my own experience was excellent.
The location is superb, directly across the street from the Stadtpark and metro to get you where you want to go. But no need for the metro, as both the Belvedere and the Kartnerstrasse are within a 15 minute walk.
I stayed in a suite and it was a wonderful experience. The furnishings were at once luxurious and spotlessly clean. The bed was a dream. Very spacious, with great views of Vienna. Great WiFi. Quiet.
All of the staff were warm and accommodating. They even allowed me to check into my room at 10 in the morning even though I hadn't paid for the night before (I had just arrived from the red eye from Canada).
I ate in the lounge area downstairs one evening. Very good food and service. fresh, and some of it authentic Viennese fare. Yes, a bit pricey, and I wouldn't eat there unless I was exhausted as I was from a long trip, but good food and local wine is always a plus.
All in all, an excellent stay!
As a side note, I would add as minor negatives that the exterior of this building looks like Soviet style architecture. Also they played rap music in the dining area for breakfast one morning-personal preference, but that isn't actual music-it is irritating guttural noise.
