While not right in the center of things, it is an easy 15 minute walk from everything or the underground station is just outside the hotel. The hotel itself is beautifully kept and the rooms are updated with all amenities. The breakfast has every imaginable thing you could want displayed beautifully and all very good. The staff is all friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.

Old decor rooms smell of smoke mitigation chemicals. beds are old. Front desk staff is cold and un friendly , I am not sure they wanted us here and gave us the worst rooms in the place until we complained (even though the place seems empty).

Not impressed I would not stay here again. If you are expecting elegance look else where if you want a place that is just a little below average it may work for you.

slow internet really in this day and age?

Room Tip: I agree with another reviewer, ask for a room that faces the street otherwise you may get a creepy c...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The location is very good and close to the main tourist area.

On checking in we were upgraded to a suite so can't comment on the standard rooms. The suite was enormous and very grand, with a large bathroom and dressing room. The rooms were very clean.

The breakfast selection was very good.

The front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Great service and a very classy hotel. The Hotel de France is very handing the best Vienna has to offer with classic buildings down the road and shopping centre not far away. The breakfast was the best we have had for a long time so much variety and quality. The rooms are spacious and well laid out, the architecture is old worldy and takes you back in time. The front desk and concierge couldn't be more helpful. We enjoyed out 3 nights very much. The TV was old world too but we weren't there to watch TV!

You can tell that in its day this hotel was quite grand. However there are many reminders of the age of the hotel, and these minor frustrations do detract from ones overall experience. Our experience at the front reception was one of cold formality. Our room, whilst quite large, had dated decor. Frustrations for us included access to the rooms, a safe that did not always work and WIFI that was difficult to access and had to be reengaged daily. The Bently the Butler clothes press was quaint. It was probably a great innovation in its day but it either did not work or we were doing something wrong; not sure but no instructions came with it. The TV was also a big square box of a thing. You get the theme. On the plus side is the fact that this hotel is ideally sitauted to explore all of the wonderful sites that Vienna has to offer.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the street as the rooms at the back face internal walls and are dark and un...

Beautiful hotel, great public areas. Ok breakfast, but no five star. The rooms clean and spacious. Walking distance to tourist attractions. Good parking service and very helpful staff. Would recommend it.

The de France has welcome guests for a long time. There is a variety of rooms from small and old fashioned to grand and modern. Some rooms are a long distance from the reception area as the hotel extends over several buildings. The multinational staff is well trained and eager to please. Located adjacent to a public transportation hub makes it a breeze to get around the city. A well stocked breakfast buffet is offered but you can also get your coffee fix at a nearby Kaffeehaus or if you must at a Starbucks a block away. The bar gives the feeling of a forlorn space squeezed between passage ways without the intimacy that one might expect from such an area.
