Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Meridien Wien Hotel
The ultimate hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked the room through the Meridien website and on arrival I was offered an up-grade to a deluxe room for 20 Euros per night which was was well worth it. The room was very large with opening windows and the very latest design and style with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced and a superb Plasma television. The shower is also amazing with multiple jets! However one of the best features was the free broadband internet access and the free mini-bar. These are services other five star hotels could learn from.
However, the quality did not end in the room. The bar is a fabulous place and seems very popular with locals. The hotel, restaurant and bar staff have a wonderful attitude and offer a consistently warm and friendly service.
The end result, like so many of the other reviewers, is that I would never stay anywhere anywhere else in Vienna! Congratulations Le Merdien..This is what hospitality should be about!
What an Experiencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Tres Chic In Viennafrom MisterW
I won't go into the details of the style of the hotel and rooms as the other reviews do it justice. But if you like very modern style and amenities as I do, you'll love it. The staff was also excellent. When we asked what time the bar closed, the response was around 2 AM or whenever the guests leave. That's the answer of a great, guest-focused hotel.
On the downside, we did have the problem with the very cool looking shower flooding as others reported. And I don't mean a little water on the floor - I mean flood. Housekeeping immediately cleaned it up for us but I think they put form above function with the shower. The location of the hotel is good but other hotels are better. The only thing it's extremely close to is the Opera house. Everything else is quick to get to by cab or by metro which is about a 5-10 minute walk. I generally like to be in the center of the action but it was worth the trade-off for such a sleek hotel.
When I read all the reviews, I definitely wanted to stay at this hotel and I'm very glad I did.

Nothing was too much trouble - trips/timetable info/any query at all. The customer service at this hotel is second to none and it was a pleasure and a delight to stay there. They put a card in your room saying something along the lines that their aim is to ensure you'll want to come back. Well, when I go back to Vienna I couldn't possible stay anywhere else.
Once there was a problem with the TV. An engineer was there to fix it wthin 5 minutes of my call. Not only that but when I next had lunch in the cafe and went to pay I was told that it was on them because of the problem with the TV.
After 10 days there we were due to go to Saltzburg for 5 days before returning to Vienna and it was no trouble to leave our luggage at the hotel.
When we came back all the staff I spoke to recognised me and greeted me warmly - most knew my name!
I have read the previous reviews with interest. I can see how the glass wall to the bathroom might present some problems for people who don't know each other well. But it's not clear glass and you really can't see anything!
Do yourself a favour - stay at this hotel.
The Place to be !!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Colours everywhere, Technology Comfort (the Beds...Oh my god!!! it shapes itself to your body).
The Spa was nice but the best was the Bar...Damn!
They had a DJ The whole Weekend and the place was packed (Definately the Place to be in Vienna)...
The Staff was amazingly helpful and smiley.
Only downside, the showers tend to flood the Bathroom a little..
We had a marvelous vacation and the Meridien was really a cool hang-out..We'll be back next year.
Best Overall Experience Ever !!from A TripAdvisor Member
For a trendy place, we found this hotel very comfortable and classy, one could think it is only for young clients but we saw a lot of older guys (we are in our thirties).
The staff was super and always smiley..
Will definately stay here again!
Good servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are excellent, very clean and modern. However they are still practical. The bathroom doors are frosted glass, however I don't find this a problem as the majority of people who will stay in this kind of hotel are single travellers or married couples.
I have found the staff to be excellent and very attentive. I was impressed when on passing my table in the bar the barman asked if I wanted some more fruit juice in my cocktail as I hadn't drank very much. It was fine - I am a very slow drinker!
The hotel lobby is full of modern art and the hotel will probably not appeal to the very traditional. However the traditionalists have their pick of hotels, Bristol, Sacher, Grand etc so I'm happy the Meridien caters to a different clientale. If modern is your preference, this is the best hotel in Vienna for you!
Wow oh Wow!from enic
The beds and pillows have entered the annals of history with my husband and I. Never have we slept better. In fact they inspired us to go out and blow a fortune on a new goose down duvet and pillows when we got home! A little lounging chair in the bedroom was almost equal bliss in the comfort stakes. All the details of this hotel stand out in sharp relief from other rivals - the delicious Hermes soap and dinky design of the glass walls in the bathroom, the wonderful power shower; the tasty breakfast in the morning; the friendly and helpful staff. All I can say is that if you're planning on staying here, I'm deeply envious..
Top Local Tips for Vienna
The Giant Ferris Wheel and Cantino's Check out the Riesand Giant Ferris Wheel. It was constructed in 1897 and you can still ride in it. Don't worry. It was quite a sturdy machine and it was a wonderful way to see the city view of Vienna. Also, check out the restaurant Cantino's. It's on the upper floor of the Haus Der Musik and was absolutely wonderful! Romantic too!
The White Chimney Sweep You must go to this restaurant if you can - pricey (we paid 142 euros) but really lovely food, rivals many of the best london restaurants. The name is german, this is the translation.
A little bit of reseach helps! I spent a little bit of time on sites like wikitravel and rough guide fnding out the best, cheapest and most authentic things to eat and places to eat at. Didn't have a bad meal all trip!
