Luxury on the ring

Stayed here a number of times as a business traveller. Service and facilities were excellent. Rooms were spacious and quite luxurious. The hotel is situated in a fine old building that has been tastefully renovated inside while preserving the external appearance.

Unique Quality: Located on the ring a few minutes walk from the Opera and the Stefl. It is an art hotel in every sense of the word.

Excellent hotel as expected, great location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel lives up to the Le Meridien name in over-all quality of rooms, premises, and services. It is in a great location on the Ring road one short block from the opera and easy walking distance to most other tourist sights. The room was a little on the small side, but other than that, it was spotless and appointed with quality materials. We did not experience my pet peeve of hearing any noise from other rooms or the hallway. The pool was small but clean, and best of all, there is a direct lift there, so you can go there in the bathrobes without having to traipse through the lobby. We would definitely stay there again.

Unique Quality: The conceirge did an excellent job for us. About a week before arriving, we asked for some opera tickets. He mentioned what was playing, we picked the Barber of Seville and asked for good seats. He said he couldn't tell us then the exact seats, but "not to worry". We ended up third row Orchestra, centre. Perfect - and a fantastic show as well.

Directions: On the Opernring section of the Ring Road, one short block from the State Opera

After surviving an emergency landing back in Vienna, I had the chance to stay one night for free in a hotel - and I chose the Meridien. It is located perfectly at Opernring, maybe a 5 minutes walk to the opera house and Kärntner Straße. It might be an old building, but inside you`ll find modern, chic design. The room was- although located to a patio- very bright. It had a huge flatscreen and a cosy sofa. The use of mini bar is free of charge (nothing expensive in it anyway, just soft drinks and a beer :)). The bathroom had a free-standing bath tub and a shower. Unfortunately the water coming from the shower soaks the floor of the bath room and even the bedroom - they should work on that. Of course there is a high-speed internet connection. The only thing I could complain about was the bed, which was super small - apart from that everything was perfect. Also the breakfast - it was excellent and with a huge choice of delicious things. There is also a Spa and restaurants. Regular room price is EUR 500 per night - I am rather sure they have some cheaper internet or company rates available.

Luxe, design et super localisation

Nous avions choisi le Méridien principalement parce que voyageant deux filles seules, nous voulions être en plein centre et pouvoir sortir dîner le soir sans craindre le retour de nuit à pieds. Finalement, Vienne est une ville qui semble-t-il est ultra sûre ! Mais la localisation de l’Hôtel est géniale car effectivement c’est à :
- 5 mins de marche de la place centrale du Stefansdom que l’on atteint par une rue commerçante et piétonnière qui part de l’Opernring et conduit au fleuve en traversant l’hypercentre de la ville
- 5 mins de marche du MuseumQuartier (prendre l’Opernring à gauche en sortant de l’hôtel et suivre toujours tout droit)
- 5 mins de marche du Hofburg
- 10 mins de marche du Belvédère (prendre l’Opernring à droite en sortant de l’hôtel et suivre toujours tout droit, puis tourner à droite après l’hôtel Imperial)

Il y a une station de métro « Karlplatz » à 50 mètres de l’hôtel qui permet de rejoindre facilement l’aéroport ou d’aller à Schonbrun visiter le château. Mais en réalité la ville n’est pas immense et à part le château et la Hundertwasser Haus qui sont un peu plus excentrés, il me semble que tout peut être fait en marchant, ce qui permet en plus de voir l’architecture, partout magnifique !

Nous, nous avons pris la « Vienna Card » qui rend les transports gratuits et donne des réductions pour les visites et même certains restaurants. Par exemple, nous avons eu un verre de vin offert au restaurant situé dans l’Albertina museum (à 3 mins de l’hôtel) dont la déco est par ailleurs typique et la cuisine aussi !

L’hôtel en lui-même est très beau, très « arty », avec une déco plutôt réussie des parties communes et des chambres. La chambre était confortable, moderne avec TV écran large LCD, sèche-chev, mini-bar, table à repasser, bouilloire,…
La salle de bains est très design, avec un jeu de lumières incroyable et une baignoire d’une taille tout à fait respectable…

Accueil très poli. Nous avons bien sûr pu laisser nos bagages en « consigne » à l’hôtel pendant la dernière journée, et être réveillés chaque matin (par la programmation de la TV !!).

Bien que situé sur l’Opernring et presque en face de l’Opéra, l’hôtel nous a semblé calme (notre chambre toutefois donnait sur la cour et non sur la rue).

Si, comme nous, vous ne voulez pas prendre le petit déjeuner à l’hôtel, il y a un Starbucks juste derrière l’Opéra à droite et de nombreux « café Viennois » bien sûr.
Nous n’avons pas non plus essayé le restaurant de l’hôtel, mais il avait l’air pas mal !!

Un très bon choix.

Directions: quasi en face de l'Opéra

Top Position.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Location –
The Le Meridien is in a prime position within minutes from all the major attractions. The Opera House across the road, Spanish horse riding – 5mins. St Stephens – 10mins and central shopping district – 5 minutes walk. Perfect for a weeks stay in Vienna. It cost approx Euro40.00 taxi from the airport.

Room –
Our room 516 is very chic, modern, spacious and contemporary with a wonderful detail of design. The room consists of a king size bed, side tables, small chair, ottoman, coffee table, two good size working desks with high speed internet, large dressing mirror with an ironing board and hairdryer tucked behind it. A super large plasma TV attached to the wall, mini bar, tea and coffee facilities, a spacious wardrobe with plenty of hanging space and cupboards. Excellent curtains with switch button to operate.

Bathroom –
An ultra modern and hi-tech bathroom with brilliant spa shower, a lovely pink claw bath, toilet, small vanity unit with excellent make-up mirror, scales , and a fashionable stainless steel towel rack, with Deco glazed walls. The only problem was as others have mentioned
was the water from the shower leaking all over the floor. (Tip- place towel on outside rim) before turning on.

Restaurants –
There are two restaurants – Shambala Restaurant which serves a modern fusion cuisine, the Café Boulevard which serves light meals/ breakfast and coffee. There is also a small bar just beside the restaurant called the Shambala Bar.(very trendy)and fab for a nightcap. Dinner was excellent.

Swimming Pool –
The pool can be extremely difficult to find, its located on the –E1 (lowest floor) and has a separate lift to it, which is located beside the bar. It’s a very small jet lap pool with a spa . Next door is the well equipped gym.

Parking –
Public parking is available underneath the hotel. It cost approx E30.00 for the day.

Unique Quality: Overall – We stayed here for four days and basically we thought the hotel to be ideal for position. The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable and modern. I have given this hotel a 5 star rating primary for its gorgeous rooms.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Le Meridien in Vienna is definitely one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Thankfully we managed to get a good deal on Expedia and went for it. It is funky and new and bright and classy.

There was a coffee shop on the groundfloor where we spent a lazy afternoon while it rained outside. There is also a bar and restaurant, which we didn't go to unfortunately.

Our room was very modern, with a flat screen tv and the works. The bathroom was really, really groovy as well. Our only gripe is that the double bed was really, really small... and in reality, so was the room as a whole. I actually went back downstairs to check with the reception staff whether we were given the wrong room as I swear the bed looked like a single room.

The location of this hotel is also quite good. It is near the Opera House, and while not right in the historic centre of the city, it is within walking distance to the main town area.

As we had our car with us, we used the hotel's car park. It costs quite a lot to park in Vienna, about €28 per day.

Directions: A good landmark to use is the Vienna Opera House, it's located quite nearby on the other side of the road.

Hotel with a Modern feel about it

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 19, 2005

Well, one cannot describe a stay at a hotel any clearer than when descrbing the visit while actually being there. Yes, I am at the Le Meridian hotel in Vienna off the Opern-ring. To get here, if you arrive on a weekday at around 1600, take the bus because the traffic will be slow and thus a cab inconvenient and expensive.

To get here, I took bus to Schwedenplatz which cost €6. Then from there, you can take the U1 train two stops to Karlsplatz Station heading towards Reumannplatz.

The rooms are like an IKEA commercial. Beds very comfortable. There is a free minibar with 2 waters, an orange and apple juice, two bottled cokes, and two beers.

The showers are comfortable and theres a silly pink tub and glass sinks. There is a nice plasma screen tv and internet use is free but you will need to leave your id at the counter to borrow a laptop computer which they onlz have 1. There is a nice gym and the service is very friendly.

Unique Quality: Free internet access and plasma screen TVs. John Harris fitness club with a nice pool, jacuzzi opened from 900 to 1900 on weekends, 630-2130 on weekdays.

Directions: Karlplatz Station, across the street from the opera house head up opern ring towards burg ring.

Well, let me be honest from the outset. Although I've stayed at all of the hotels mentioned to date, I have yet to stay at Le Meridien. I've looked at it, been in it, listened to those who've stayed in it and, yes, I think I can offer an opinion worth reading.

When it first opened this hotel was specifically created to appeal to those who worshipped at the altar of the modern and stylish... some found it's efforts to do so a little overpowering but you couldn't deny that it looked splendid and it soon became Vienna's hottest hotel. Restaurant, gym, swimming pool, internet..it's still all here. The hotel is situated a stones throw from the Opera on the Opernring itself - a good central location with the tram and underground system literally outside the front door.

Back then, initial problems with the design of the trendy showers seemed to dog otherwise glowing reviews...apparently they looked wonderful but were inclined to flood into your room unless barricaded with towels...oh, and the glass fronted toilets weren't to everyones taste! Now you hear rather more carping amongst the praise. So much so that the Tripadvisor rating has slipped from that initial heady '1st' all the way down to the '50s'! this, I fear, is the curse of all hotels that set out to be trendsetting. Ten years down the line, you're sadly no longer so trendy.

Even so I think you'd be hard pushed not to have a comfortable stay there but it's not perhaps a choice for those who enjoy their comforts in more traditional surroundings. For those people, hotels like the Imperial, Sacher and Konig von Ungarn will still remain a better bet.

Unique Quality: Modern and chic...but there are deals to be had!

This hotel is fantastic.
Between the gorgeous rooms, spa, massages, fantastic cocktails and its location we couldnt have asked for anymore.
The staff are great, especially the bar staff who kept me company with a cocktail while i waited on my fiance getting ready mostly every night !
I dont have a single bad thing to say about this hotel.
It is a bit pricey, but worth every penny.
Loved it.

Unique Quality: The location of this hotel - directly opposite the state opera is a big bonus.

The buffet breakfast gets boring after more than 4 weeks, but it's very diverse.
Central location. The swimming pool is not big enough for anything close to lap swimming, but nice spa.

The nicest bed linen I have ever felt in my life!! Such a high quality nice cotton, they could not tell me where to get them.

The Le Meridien Vienna is a very impressive Hotel. Not specialy from the outside, but from Inside. The whole Hotel has got a great design, modern and welcoming.

Normaly i would never pay for a Hotel like that in a town, but we got a great deal, it was worth it! Le Meridien Vienna is probably the most comfortable and best designed Hotel i've ever stayed in.

Unique Quality: The rooms are so calles "Art and Tech" rooms, when you enter the room you know why.... The design uses lots of wood and plays with the light. The Tech bit is a Huge flat screen Television (some 110cm), High Speed internet, Phone, Pay TV, Air conditioning, Coffee making facility, FREE (!!) Minibar, Shower with massage function, TV loudspeeker in the Bathroom etc.

The very comfortable bed (with a 40cm mattress) has got a huge glass picture on the head end wich can be lit up, looks great! Different pillows, duvets and sheets will let you sleep wonderfull (specialy after a day walking around vienna....)

The breakfast is served at a well equiped buffet, fresh orange juice, fruits, cheese, eggs, different bread etc.

The Hotel has got a wellness area too, with swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna and fitness, towels, bathrobes are of course provided free.

Directions: Near to the Opera. A metro and tram station (Karlsplatz - Oper) is located only a few meters away from the Hotel.

Vienna's Newest "Minimalist" Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 3, 2004

We didn't really spend much time in the hotel (it seems a shame to when you only have two days in the city!), but the room was probably one of the best I've stayed in.
It's very modern, "minimalist" decor & the shower room is actually a huge "wet room".
It's great value if you get a deal, but you MUST get a deal- the rack rates are shockingly expensive!
Location pretty good, on the Orpernring right near the Opera House- the Concierge even sorted us out with tickets to the Opera which was supposedly sold out! I mean how can you go to Vienna and not see the opera?
