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
We had a good stay here and good staff but one flaw was a leak in our room when it rained.
This was the first night we were there, however we were moved the next morning as soon as we told reception and soon moved and got upgraded.
The hotel is well appointed and the staff attentive and helpful.
We did not eat in the hotel as breakfast was very expensive but looked really good.
Good location with the railway to the airport about 10 mins walk up the park and quite a few places for eating nearby but you need to look a little bit for them.
Overall a great stay and definately go back
We spent one night at the InterConti in Vienna.
Overall it was a nice experience. The room on the 12th floor overlooking the park was clean, well furbished and well maintained.
The hotel has come into age, but is well preserved.
It was a busy weekend and staff was attentive and helpful.
I can recommend the hotel and would definitely return there.
I had a nice stay at the Intercontinental of five days. I enjoyed access to the club room. The staff there was friendly and tried to always be helpful. Their efforts as concierge service would be a big weakness, as the expertise isn’t close . The downstairs concierge is certainly the go to for tickets etc. although they rotate, you are most likely to get one with not much patience.
Club breakfast helps eliminate the sometimes very crowded bus buffet. But the quality of your breakfast takes a big hit in the club room . There isn’t a qualified omelette chef in the club room.
Rooms are fair with small baths , and high step in tubs for showering.
And my pet peeve; king bed with two mini duvets . Seriously no sheets and a three foot wide duvet!
Visited vienna n stayed at intercontinental hotel just for a b short trip in january 2019. But enjoyed v much . Visited palace v beautiful schunbrunnen difficult name i think . But too beautiful too much snow . Enjoyed v much .
On our way home to Dublin every holiday-maker’s nightmare struck us and many others - our plane was canceled and we were stranded at the airport. After a lot of confusion and running we finally lined up at the Handler’s desk with docents of others - 3 planes in total were unfit to fly. Another thing unfit - the contracted Handlers - management was outright CRAP and everyone was needlessly waiting for hours without any information being passed on! Finally we were given a Voucher for the Intercontinental Hotel with no idea where this was and what to expect…. Well…
The Intercontinental Vienna is a 5-star establishment with 12 floors and a LOT of character, bling and every service one could expect from an upper class hotel. Bellboy, Concierge, All-day coffee and late night bar including bar food - a relief as we arrived around 11pm… Our standard room was on the 9th floor and - well standard equipped for this type of hotel - the 9th floor was quiet that night. There are four central lifts - so little waiting, which only operate if you swipe your activated room access card (nice touch - no-one except guests and staff makes it to the rooms…). Our room was very clean and had the usual assortment of smellies, hair dryer, Iron (yuck), program able safe and fluffy dressing gowns, etc. The mini bar has some system build in to let them at reception know what you removed - the system noted me taking a bottle of Sprite without problem - BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU :))
The Breakfast is at Ground floor level and quiet impressive - lots of choice and lots of staff trying to be of assistance. Both hot and cold options are available and everything was tasty and very well presented. The continental Breakfast was not as good as I have seen it for example in a traditional Bavarian or Austrian Hotel such as the Furgassl-Huber in Vienna ( see my other review…), but very impressive on a more international level - WOW!
After our Airport debacle my wife and I agreed we would “test” the bar extensively… Nothing one could miss here… The Gin Menu was longer than some restaurants food menu - they selling excellent cocktails there and my mid-night burger was class! The waiters were flying and there was little waiting time despite the fact that 15 emergency rooms were booked short notice and all their inhabitants were looking for food at this late hour - testing the bar-chef to his limits - no doubt.
So what’s bad - Well don’t expect a beer for 3EUR - we ran up a bill of over 100EUR in less than 2 hours at the bar - cocktails go for 12.50EUR and my 0.25ltr sprite from the mini bar was 10 quid! I don’t know how much the rooms were (Aer Lingus paid our bill) but my wife said she had seen some specials that reduce the 250-300EUR price-range advertised on their web-page. The hotel is in walking distance to the Opera house and has a U-Bahn station right opposite from it - there is also a taxi range right at the entrance. If you got that kind of money - go for it - its worth what you are paying. For people like myself - look out for a deal - GOOD LUCK!
