“Great location....but does not feel like 5 stars”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The hotel is ideally located for visiting most Vienna attractions and landmarks. A few minutes from the main pedestrian shopping street (Kartnerstrasse), and very close to many excellent restaurants. The interior of the hotel needs some redesigning and redecorating as it gives you a sense of being in an environment that used to be " modern avant-garde", but that looks more tired and plain today....the room is very modern but almost to the point of looking bare....the carpet in the hallway was in real need of a thorough cleaning....the service was courteous and very efficient. All in all we did not feel we were getting the value for the price, except for the location.

Room Tip: We asked a room with a view and were told we got one, but the view was really not impressive....

I was here as part of an company launch event. I found this hotel to be a perfect blend of stylish yet functional accommodations, and service levels appropriate for a business hotel. The lobby is nice sized with original artwork (better than some of the other Le Meridiens I have seen) My room was spacious and well-designed with an incredible bathroom (especially by European standards). It included a shower and deep soak bathtub. The hotel is very well located.The staff were warm enough and efficient. The bar area was okay for a quick business drink but not the best. There was a connected bar, Le Moët Champagne bar, that attracted a diverse group of people. I think that this is one of the nicer Le Meridiens and definitely a step above the usual business hotel. Highly recommend.

The hotel is in a wonderful location. It is quite modern and in excellent condition. We had booked the cheapest rate on their web site, but it was really too small for 2 people, so upgraded on arrival for an extra 25 euros. very happy we did so - new room was enormous and excellent!
Very modern. All furnishings and decor are in excellent condition.
Just a note - the bathrooms are the very modern frosted glass door version. Not for everyone. Also - for what is a beautiful bathroom, it is a little stingy on counter space.
Finally, I would say that the staff was just OK nice. After traveling through Budapest and the Czech republic, and getting incredible customer service in all hotels, I would characterize the reception here as a little "cold" - at least from the front desk. Bell men were the only nice ones.
Finally - it is an enormous place and halls are long. If you are traveling with seniors, make sure to get a room near the elevator.
All in- - I highly recommend.

Room Tip: 1. ask for location near elevator if you have trouble navigating a long hall. 2. if possible, overl...

Dear “RSM6300”,

Thank you for sharing your impressions on your recent stay with us at Le Méridien Vienna. We are glad you enjoyed such a great time at our property and that we were helpful in finding the appropriate room for you. The fact that you experienced our front desk staff as “cold” surprises us though, as our team members are always very courteous and ambitious concerning their duties. We feel sorry that you left us with a rather negative impression in that matter and hope that we will be able to see you back soon with us to prove that we can be as charming and professional as you stated our colleagues in Budapest and the Czech Republic have been.

If there is anything we may be of assistance with for your next visit in Vienna, please do not hesitate to contact us directly – we are looking forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards to New York City,

It was the first time we went to Viena and we chose Le Méridien. A perfect choice, not only because it is a magnificent building located in the heart of the beautiful cultural quarter of Viena, the rooms are modern, bright and very comfortable, that it has a nice gym and Spa, but mainly for the staff, who are all charming, kind and very helpful.
But particulary the waiter Mario, who made us feel like at home, with his smile and pleasant conversation. Constantin, also was a very nice ,well-mannered waiter who instructed us about Viena and its culture.
An unforgettable stay at Le Méridien. We'll be back!!

The room was a good size, and the bath tub was fantastic. We were booked into a queen room, but the bed was a small double, the bed also had seen better days, and sagged in the middle.
Breakfast was fantastic, the location can't be beat. Staff were friendly.
Beware that some floors have stair cases in the middle of them, so if you have heavy bags get the hotel staff to take them for you.
