We spent almost a week at The Ring as we co-organised a fashion show in Vienna. With 8 rooms and a very exigent group of people we demanded everything you can imagine from the Ring Hotel and its staff, who were always friendly and at our service.

The rooms are fantastic, a good mix between traditional Vienna architecture featuring modern amenities. And, who doesn't want to wake up overlooking the Vienna Opera, or watch the Karlsplatz from the Sauna in the rooftop Spa area.

I was impressed the other guests were so young as us, musicians, actors and various hipsters walk in and out of this hotel in an area of town which is usually known for museums and monuments. However it is the perfect location to explore the city, the trendy 6th and 7th districts are in walking distance, the music venues in the 2nd and 3rd districts only minutes by cab away.

Rock on Ring Hotel, we’re definitely coming back!

Dear 'NOTJUSTALABEL.com', thank you for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure hosting you and your guests at Vienna's most casual luxury hotel. May I say that you were not demanding, you just expected the casual luxury service and we provided it to the max. Our guests are indeed hip, trendy, musicians, DJ's, weekend-breakers, fashionistas etc, guests that are looking for a casual luxury hotel. We will 'rock on The Ring Hotel' like you do, I am very much looking forward welcoming you again in the hopefully very near future!! best regards

Great hotel in a very good location. The only thing I would improve would be the lobby - it looks more like a 3 star hotel lobby - very small and honestly not very clean. However, my impression changed quickly after I entered the room - very large, big flat screen TV, Nesspresso coffee machine, nice bathroom. The break fast was very nice as well (even if quite pricey).

Dear 'acostin76', great review, much appreciated! So sorry that you did not like our lobby, I must say you are the 1st guest that does not like it and wrote about it. You must know that due to the size of the hotel our lobby could not get larger but I must admit that it should be clean.....thank you for your great comments on our rooms! Looking forward welcoming you again@The Ring in the near future. Best regards!

A superb experience in this extremely well located luxury design hotel- I really enjoyed appreciated the modern touches of this five-star hotel; it was so good to get a quick and sincere welcome and check in from staff who took their time to explain everything I needed to know. My deluxe room was more than spacious, it had a Nespresso machine, a huge comfy bed and decent flat screen TV . Room service was excellent – good choice and the food arrived quickly. The restaurant is smart and the dishes looked creatively prepared and of a very high standard. A big plus for me, travelling on business was the free high speed internet access; all in all, this hotel has it right as a modern luxury hotel and though I only stayed one night, I will certainly use the hotel on my next trip to Vienna.

Have stayed at quite a few luxury hotels and I must say, whoever coined the phrase "casual luxury" to describe this hotel is at point! That phrase never made sense to me in all the publicity posted int he website, until I experienced casual luxury! Service is exemplary and as I told my friend, the difference is that the people working there really look happy to be of service to you. The room was extremely comfortable ... love the bed and the separate toilet and shower area. The nespresso was a bonus! The turndown service was a nice touch.

The location was fantastic .. just a minute from Karlsplatz and within walking distance to all the great places in Vienna ... even if it were a litle bit far off, I would still stay here because of the sheer comfort of staying here

I must mention a few of the staff who have made our stay enjoyable... top of the list are Nicole and Sonia from at eight, who served us breakfast... then Helena from the front desk. The bellboys and the seemingly invisible housekeeping team who magically fix your room everytime, just leaving a hint of their presence with chocolate mints and donuts :-)

I trust reviews from tripadvisor and it has never ever failed me. So, to anyone who is reading on... the comments here are all true !!!! dont think twice, if you want comfort, convenience, great service and more, stay at this hotel!

Many thanks for a great experience.

On a regular basis live DJs will be contributing to the party feeling. The restaurant "at eight" is located on the ground floor and pampers the guests with outstanding international, toque winning seasonal aroma cuisine. Apart from the cuisine awarded with two toques, the innovative design concept impresses the guests.
