The Ring, Relais & Chateaux
Ranked #26 of 359 Hotels in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 January 2010

(+): Stuning late XIX century building centrally located, walking distance to the old town and to the other attraction, Design and chic atmosphere, nicelly decorated bedroom.
(-): Bedroom quite small, sauna did not work, the bar - which looks big and busy on the web site - is in fact small and quiet.
As long as you like small design and sophisticated places (VS. large hotel chains, Hilton, Hyatt,etc..), I would recommand this hotel to take your wife away for a romantic week-end in Vienne or even for business

Dear 'JCJParis', a wonderful and smart review, thank you so much. I am happy to read the USP's as '+' points, do apologize for the '-' points, we indeed faced a problem with the sauna, our bar is a typical vodka bar and more crowded as of 22.00 hours, but this depends on the day of the week....and the month...January is still a bit slow when it comes to business...anyhow I would be delighted to welcome you back in the near future, either on business or for a romantic weekend. Best regards

Stunning views in a perfect location for viewing Vienna - a business trip with a difference - really felt very relaxed and comfortable here. Stylish but not too pretentious. Lovely!

A good friend of ours advised us to stay at The Ring hotel during our holiday in Vienna. We're glad to have listened to him! As The Ring is a truly amazing hotel! From the warm welcome at the entrance/reception to the overwhelming feeling when we entered our suite... The Ring Suite, with its beautiful ornaments, wooden panelling, draperies and balcony with an amazing view over the Kartnerring! Also my partner really loved the bathing products. It was superb!! We can also recommend having dinner at restaurant At Eight. It has a tasteful and creative kitchen.

We really enjoyed this hotel. The location is great as in front of the hotel you have the city centre which is close to all of the attractions and a 3 minute walk from a beautiful pedestrianised shopping area and behind the hotel about a 10 minute walk away is the huge street market Naschmarkt. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean with lovely modern furnishings and a beautiful bathroom. The highlight by far was the bed as it was one of the comfiest we have stayed in. Another nice touch was the Nespresso machine in the room which they refilled with coffee daily.

The only thing to note about the hotel is that it is on a bit of a hard street to get to by car/taxi so if you are in a taxi it might be better to get dropped off at the Opera across the street then just walk as it was an additional €7 in a taxi to go around the block to drop us at the front door when we could have hopped out across the street. Also worth bearing in mind that like most European cities, Vienna basically shuts down on a Sunday so don't plan on doing any shopping that day.

Dear 'ATIG', great review. many thanks. Glad to read that you liked the hotel and its facilities. As for your comments on our beds, many guests do try to order one for private use, if you need assistance here please do let me know. As for the shopping on Sunday, indeed correct that Vienna 'shuts' down as far as shopping possibilities do concern. Believe me, it is not that easy to get that changed...looking forward welcoming you again in the near future. Best regards!

The Ring, Vienna was an amazing hotel. I absolutely loved the decor, very modern yet still very comfortable. The location is unbeatable--right across from Stephansplatz and the very easy-to-use Metro. The only minor complaint was that we tried to do a wake-up call--which did not happen. Luckily we set our phone anyway as a backup. The beds were indeed amazing--so amazing that I wrote down the brand trying to buy a mattress myself! I will definitely stay there again when I go back to Vienna.

My family is originally from Austria and I grew up visiting relatives most summers, so when it came time to take my wife to Vienna for the first time I wanted a hotel that would be relaxing and luxurious while allowing us easy walking access to sights and restaurants, not to mention cafes, for the best experience of Vienna possible. In The Ring, we found a hotel in Vienna that will be our home base for every visit to come!

From check-in through to when we finally had to leave, the experience at The Ring was without compare. The front desk help was fluent in English but put up with my mangled German as well. The room was outstanding, roomy and clean, with complimentary water and espresso in the room (perfect way to start the morning in Vienna, a double espresso to get you out the door and to the coffee shop!). The bathroom was clean, bright, and wonderfully designed & appointed. Oh, and the hotel has the most insanely comfortable beds I have ever had the pleasure to sleep on, we even asked the management about the beds, which they were more than pleased to tell us about, though the cost means we won't be buying one anytime soon, guess we'll just have to go back to The Ring!

The hotel is very hip and sophisticated, but the staff and environment is never elitist or unwelcoming. The night we arrived there was a party at the bar, a launch for a ski company's line, great if you're into the nightlife, but also not distracting for homebodies like my wife and me. I ate at the excellent restaurant in the hotel, "At Eight", several times during our stay, twice for dinner with my wife and twice for breakfast meetings. Each meal was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent every time.

The location is excellent, steps away from the opera house and the Kartnerstrasse, and my wife and I took nightly strolls along the Ringstrasse, often stopping at Café Schwarzenberg just down the street for dessert and a nightcap. Overall, an excellent experience, the best place to stay for a Vienna vacation.

We stayed in this hotel during our recent weekend trip to Vienna and found it to be excellent. The staff were always friendly and helpful, right from my phone call to advise of our late arrival through to check in and check out. The rooms were spotlessly clean, modern and very well decorated. The hotel is right on the Ringstrasse and within short walking distance of all places of interest in the city centre. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I would definitely stay there again.
