Historical Traveller Reviews of The Ring Hotel

Must be the best hotel in town!

from VenR
We only had one night to stay in Vienna, visiting a concert in the Stephans Dom and we spent it the best possible way: in The Ring. Don't start measuring your room and bed, or counting your pillows, otherwise you will never leave your room!

The staff is more then nice and friendly. They really know who you are, are friendly and interested in what you will be doing. If you let them, they help you all around town.

Also very important: food! The restaurant is very, very, very good. They serve a delicious breakfast and a tremendously nice lunch with Austrian bubbly wine. Even if you don't choose to stay in The Ring, you absolutely must try this restaurant. You will find extremely good value for money there.

We plan to revisit Vienna very soon for a longer stay. And we will definitely stay in The Ring again. Oh, before we forget to mention: even their umbrellas are too cool!

The trendiest hotel of Vienna

from Glamourchik
I travel to Vienna rather often – every 2 months and after some years of search of the best hotel I finally have found it – THE RING.

This hotel was opened in November, 2007 (the people who travel to Vienna confirm that the overwhelming majority of 5-star hotels in Austrian capital are needed to be closed for renovation or at least refurbishment).

THE RING is really Casual Luxury Hotel – very trendy, but without aggressive design; luxurious in service, atmosphere, decoration, but not heavy, it is very relaxing, nothing pushes you.

Special point is the rooms and suites. They are really large!!! The colors are very light and harmonic. (I remember as nightmare my stays at old 5-star Vienna hotels with wallpapers full of huge flashy flowers and old furniture which can be crashed after any touch).
THE RING’s rooms are equipped with Nespresso machine, really huge flat-screen TV. The wardrobe is really large and walk-in one.

THE RING has Molton Brown as cosmetic line (I so am tired of no name shampoos in Vienna’s hotels).

I would like to emphasize how great is cuisine in THE RING. The chef of AT EIGHT restaurant uses fresh herbs and ethereal oils like honey oil, orange oil, lavender – so, it is really AROMA-CUISUNE and the dishes are extremely marvelous. I can compare the excellence of meal only with 2 restaurants in Austria: Le Ciel in sister-hotel Grand Hotel Wien and the restaurant in Hotel Post in Lech. The wine list is the best in Vienna (THE RING has its own wine cellar).

The bar is really trendy (they change decoration every 3 months).

It is great that there are sauna and steam bath in city hotels. THE RING is number 1 even in it.

There is a window with panoramic view on very beautiful cathedral Karlkiche in steam bath on top floor. It is amazing!!!

I stayed at THE RING in November, 2007, February, 2008 and July, 2008.
Always there were some new things in the Hotel. Last time entering the room I found the business cards with my name and logo and address, telephone of the hotel – I was very impressed!!! I personally liked the new small bags for morning newspapers with the phrase Fresh and Crispy – very nice!!! THE RING is full of the details which makes my stay unforgettable.

It happened that I got the same room my every stay and last time drinking coffee in my room with panoramic view on famous Vienna’s RING I understood why famous writer Nabokov spend 16 years of his life in one hotel.

I have found the hotel where I am ready to live – it is THE RING, Vienna’s Casual Luxury Hotel !!!!

Charming and Individual

from Axelino
A really charming place in the center of Vienna. Very nice rooms, excellent service and a surprisingly different breakfast concept. Will definitely stay there again, when in Vienna.

The best hotel in town!

from hotelsNl
We have stayed a view days in Vienna and on advise of some friends we have booked The Ring. We have never stayed at this hotel although we are often in Vienna. It was a good choise! Excellent international 5 star plus hotel in the hart of down town Vienna. Very nice rebuild in a modern / classic style. Very helpful en friendly staff, and a very nice and good bedroom. Excellent beds, also good for very tall people as I am. Interesting F&B concept with the Aroma kitchen.
We wish het Management and staff all the best, keep up the good work!

Great stay!

from Anni16
We stayed at The Ring in March 2008 and it was a great experience. What a relaxing, modern atmosphere compared to the rather formal approach of the traditional hotels in Vienna! It was fun to discover our room, the stylish bathroom with Molton Brown amenities and the matching collaterals - from diary, note pad to slippers... The rooms are spacious. You dont hear any traffic noise from the ring street right in front of the hotel. Housekeeping service is discreet and efficient. Don't miss out on the creative breakfast options. The restaurant is also a good choice for either lunch or dinner, including great views of the sister property, The Grand Hotel. All major attractions, ie. The Opera House, Kaerntner Street, Naschmarkt and St. Stephens Cathedrale are in walking distance.


from JJE72
Ladies and Gentlemen,

We had the opportunity to stay in this lovely hotel just the first weekend after the opening. As we have a little boy of two years old we can say that we were very happy by finding out that our baby-phone worked from the 3th floor into the restaurant and the bar.

As for the hotel: the rooms are spacious, clean, welldecorated and have a modern look with a warm feeling.

The restaurant is perfect, maybe a visit by the Michelin-brigade could give the carte/staff/wines what is deserves!!!

The bar with some perfect inviting eye-catchers, such as the seats and the special drinks wants you to spend some time in it!

Overall; for a new hotel with its starting-issues it was perfect and we think will get better as time flies.......

s best hotel by far! We loved it!!!

from HobbyHotelier
Great location, great service, great style! All key ingredients for a romantic and comfortable Vienna trip are available at this brand new jewel.

The beautiful opera house is right across the street and all shopping and sight seeing destinations are within easy reach.

The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The outlets are fun and fod was delicious.

Most importantly, and the staff is very attentive, attractive and really well trained.

The name fits the concepts, they live what the promise!

We'll be back!

Great, but breakfast not included!

from grona
The room was fantastic and the service was amazing, unfortuntately, considering how much the origional room price was, we presumed breakfast was included. The next morning we had a reasonable basic breakfast without realising it was not included in our room rate, and had to pay Eur34 each!!. We then asked for a taxi to bring us to the airport, in which they got their hotel car (without informing us) that charged Eur40 for a 15 minute journey. Great hotel, fantastic location, just beware of the costs not included and use a public taxi!

wonderful new gem in the heart of vienna

from jkjsnewyork
my husband and i stayed for 6 nights at the ring hotel. because it is a new property which just opened up last fall, we were a little hesitant because of the lack of reviews. however, all the reviews we saw were positive and the property looked nice on the web page. additionally, the room was $350/night which was cheaper than other hotels in the same category. we stayed in a 'special' room that is categorized as larger than a 'casual room' it was worth the $60 extra for the stay as the room was very large and had room for a breakfast table. the staff was very gracious. the room was very clean. the bed was large and comfortable- it felt like a california king and it was made up with a comforter on each side. there is also free internet connection in the room. the location is perfect- across from the opera house and within walking distance of all the major sights. the ubahn is also across the street. i am very picky in general and this hotel was really pretty much perfect!

Great location

from beammeup
Myself & partner stayed for 3 nights in February. We had requested a non-smoking room which we got. Beautiful king size bed with lovely bedding, room a little on small size and wasn't overly impressed with colour scheme - a little oppressive (Green curtains and coffee colour bedding). The bathroom was lovely and equipped with Molton Brown toiletries. Mini bar and coffee making facilities. One nice thing was that the hotel was not too hot, in fact, the staff reduced the heating in our room below the standard 22 degrees when requested.
We had drinks in the gorgeous hotel bar but felt cocktails were not up to scratch - I had far superior mojitos in a little bar in the centre. We had breakfast on one of the mornings and I couldn't fault the beautiful croissants and pastries and other breakfast fare. Again, the service was perfect.
The location is perfect, almost opposite the Opera House and so close to all the attractions - we walked the legs off ourselves and did the touristy hop-on & off buses.
Overall, I would stay in this hotel again.
