Review of the Ring Hotel, Vienna

I stayed for two nights at the 5 star Ring Hotel in Vienna in May 2011, on a complimentary basis. The hotel is in a central location on the ring road that encircles the old town, so very handy for sightseeing on foot.

I thought that the lobby of the hotel was quite small for a five star hotel. The decor didn’t appeal to me with features like mini rhino sculptures illuminated in green in a recessed case in the wall.

My room was spacious and comfortable, decorated in a traditional, classic style. It was very quiet in the room despite the proximity of a major road. There was a coffee machine in the room. The fresh flowers in the room and bathroom were a nice touch.

The toiletries in the bathroom were lovely. There was a wired internet connection and wifi (variable quality), both free of charge, in the room. The hotel has a spa on the top floor with a gym, a steam room and a sauna. I had the steam room and sauna to myself one evening.

I only ate breakfast at the hotel’s  “At Eight” restaurant.

The selection at the “Quick Breakfast” buffet was quite limited for a 5 star hotel with cereal, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, two fruit juices and a selection of rolls and pastries.  Tea or coffee was brought to your table on request. It was possible to order various egg dishes, different fruit juices and a wider range of hot drinks as extras.

As I spend the majority of my time at a hotel in my room, it’s the room that matters most to me. I rated my room at the Ring Hotel as excellent for comfort and spaciousness, having free wired internet connection and being so quiet for a city centre.  The lobby decor is a matter of taste and I was only there for a few minutes but I do think that the breakfast selection could be extended.
