Explore the cultural treasures of historic Vienna in modern style at the newly-opened Mercure Raphael Hotel Wien, which boasts a shiny décor and high-class facilities. Occupying a quiet spot in the heart of the Austrian capital, within walking distance of key attractions, this light and airy four-star hotel has every modern comfort you’d expect from a city sleep. The air-conditioned bedrooms are particularly fresh and stylish, and you’ll find a brand-new breakfast restaurant, if you don’t want to wander too far for a morning meal.
The hotel’s central location makes sightseeing a breeze, and excellent public transport in and around the center means you’re never too far from palatial buildings and attractive squares. Among Vienna’s many marvelous sights, the Hofburg Imperial Palace, Belvedere Palace and the Kunsthistorisches Museum are a short drive away. Other hotspots worth exploring in the city include St. Stephen’s Cathedral with its mosaic-tiled roof, the nostalgic Prater Park, and Hundertwasserhaus.

How to Get There
The Mercure Raphael Wien is located just a ten minute walk from the Westbahnhof railway station. If travelling from the airport, take the VAL 1 bus (€8, 40 mins) which stops directly outside of the station. Alternatively, there is the City Airport Train (€11, 15 mins) to the Wien Mitte railway station, with U-bahn connection to Westbahnhof (13 mins).
There is a Lidl supermarket just a few doors down from the hotel, and a wider choice of stores along the busy high street of Mariahilfer Straße opposite Westbahnhof.
We stayed five nights in a standard double room, which included a number of useful amenities i.e. mini-fridge, kettle, tea/coffee, iron/ironing board. The bed was large and very comfortable, and the room in general felt particularly spacious.
Upon returning to the hotel one evening we had some issue with the lights not working in our room, however we were promptly upgraded to a larger room by a friendly receptionist, so many thanks for that.
If returning to Vienna we would happily stay at this Mercure again.
A good hotel and well positioned but very unpolite receptionist on her name Natalie,treating guests as they were her subordinates.Room was big enough but not that clean as the last time I stayed here.
Stayed here for 3 nights and were upgraded to a room with a fantastic balcony. The rooms are modern and clean with great air conditioning as the temp was 36 degrees when we visited. The hotel is about a minute's walk from the underground and tram stops and a 5 minute walk from the bus station where you can catch a bus to the airport for €8. Breakfast was expensive at €16 each so we just got a pastry each day from Lidl and had coffee from the nespresso type machine in the room. Only downside was the shower over the middle of the bath, bad design, floor got soaked every day.
