Great stay at the Ring

Perfect location to explore Vienna, especially for a first time visitor. Having an affordable (or free) breakfast option would have made the stay perfect.

Best hotel I've ever stayed in.

Everything was excellent, room size was very large, toilet in separate room, which I enjoyed. Nice amenities, and the staff were overly friendly and helpful. The only suggestion I have is don't take a room on the 6th floor, the windows face the sky not the city.

Wonderful Experience!

The Ring is centrally located to the opera and shopping. We found the The Ring staff to be exceptional! The tickets to the opera and the concert dinner tickets they obtained for us were excellent seatings and at a good price. You will want to check with them before purchasing tickets on the sidewalk from ticket sellers. Friends who stayed there a couple years ago recommended The Ring to us. We're glad they did!

Great location , perfect for exploring Vienna on foot

The hotel was brilliant.. The staff perhaps a little too discreet.. Could have engaged more with residents..for example by suggesting restaurants or evening events .. Nice touch .. We had chocolate one evening left in our room.. The location was just perfect for exploring Vienna..

Awesome 2- 1/2 days!

Wonderful. Incredible location to do most of Vienna on foot. They upgraded us to a suite without even asking, the staff was great, but not "pushy" in any way.

Great Location & Beautiful Room

The Ring was a fantastic hotel for our first visit to Vienna. The location was very close to the Opera House, yet very quiet. The room was decorated very nicely in a modern style and was unexpectedly very spacious (huge room compared to any other hotel I've stayed at in Europe)! Downsides were the very, very soft bed, and that the help from the front desk was inconsistent (had some very helpful people, and had some people that seemed like they didn't really want to help you with questions). Overall, a wonderful experience and I would recommend the hotel to anyone!

Great Place in Vienna

The stay in Vienna was short, but very sweet in the Ring. Hotel was clean, staff was great, the ambience was quiet and cool wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely consider it for future stays.

A good location, but with bad internet.

Basically, this is a decent hotel. The room was large. The staff was usually pleasant. The worst thing was that my reservation said that I was supposed to have free “high speed internet.” This is why I picked this hotel. When I got to the hotel I realized that were doing a cleaver bait and switch. They had “dial up speed” internet for free and “business class” internet for 10 euros a day. I spoke to the front desk and they insisted that I only had dial up internet. Their ad also said they had wired internet which they said they do not have. I paid for the business class speed which was suppose to be 3 megs. It was at most 350K. The front desk said, “No one else is complaining.” When I called the next day they said “we already spoke to you about this.” I was quite annoyed. The internet would stop frequently as if waiting for something. It poked along at other times. Sometimes at 20B/sec. There are many lights in the room. With all of them on, I could not read at night, I suppose they are conserving energy. When I arrived the drinking glasses seemed clean. After I used them I noticed that there was towel fuzz all over them. It is common for housekeepers to wash the glasses in the bathroom but I expected better at these prices. There were no electrical outlets in the bathroom.
