Location, evenings with pianista, nice spacy rooms
We booked a double De Luxe at last moment and we received upgrade to the best Suite !
We loved our stay here. The hotel was very convenient and our room was very comfortable and spacious. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here and the hotel treated us to a bottle of champagne in our room which was a very nice touch! The staff were very warm and helpful.
The room was beautifully appointed with all the amenities one would expect and then some. Appreciated the large bathroom and thoughtful toiletries. The lobby was lovely and we enjoyed the pianist in the evenings.
Staff on two occasions did not do what they said they would do. We had an early arrival and were assured that we would be called if our room was ready prior to 2 pm. When we inquired around noon, it turns out our room had been ready for awhile. We made a request for a different blanket and was assured it was on its way. We returned later that evening to find it had not been changed.
Perfect breakfast, ideal location, helpfull personal.
The Grand Hotel Wien is located in the heart of Vienna, Austria just steps from the State Opera House in Ringstrasse. The elegant hotel was built according to plans by renowned architect Carl Tietz and first opened it's doors on May 10th 1870. Guests at the time could enjoy such luxuries as a telegraph office, steam powered elevators, and 300 rooms with 200 fabulously appointed bathrooms. Johann Strauss even celebrated his 50-year jubilee at the hotel in 1894.
In 1945 The Grand Hotel Wien shut its doors due to the occupation of Russian troops for 10 years and then to the International Atomic Energy Agency who used it for their headquarters until 1989.
After a 100 million Euro renovation the hotel was reopened on July 14th 1994 with a total of 300 rooms and suites for guests to choose from. All rooms are equipped with antique furniture, flat screen TV, beautiful textiles, and large marble bathrooms with double vanities. The Presidential suite features a grand dining room with open fireplace, spacious master bedroom with a canopy bed, large living room with balcony, and a marble bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub.
