I just had the pleasure of a 10 day stay at The Ring and a stay of that length puts a hotel to the test and The Ring is a winner.
First the location. In the luxury zone with the Imperial, Grand and Bristol, this is a casual modern hotel but more luxurious than a W or Le Meridian. The hotel is only steps from a bus that circulates through the inner city and also next to trams which circle the Ringstrasse plus only a block to a subway station which can take you anywhere in Vienna. Also you are only steps from the Opera and Philharmonic. I can't imagine a better location in Vienna.
The room was one of the best I have ever had anywhere. Very spacious with large windows looking onto the Ringstrasse (I could see the Opera) and very well thought out with a working desk with converter plugs, high speed internet, comfortable chairs by the window, a small table and chairs for dining and endless luxury details. The room works.
The staff was exceptional and the service always prompt and friendly. Again in the course of 10 days you end up using many services like laundry, room service, special requests and the staff always excelled.
I hated to leave and can't wait to return.
