... highlight in Vienna was going to a concert at the Arsensl, this venue was stunning, and is now their military museum, also used for concerts. We had a cocktail reception, ascended the Ted carpeted stairs onto a magnificently decorated room. It was a Classical Musical Concert " a trip through the history of Austrian music". This was brilliant. Saw the lights of Vienna on the drive back to the ...

The next day I was to see the Schronbrunn Palace and I'm beginning to think that I need a palace. It was again opulent and beautiful and there's lots of space an grounds and gardens and this one had a zoo. I would like a palace and tiger. After spending a few hours at the palace I rode the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de France Vienna
I stayed here one night on a business trip. For some reason I was upgraded to a suite, so I can't give a review of the rooms themselves.
Hotel de France was wonderful!
My husband and I found Hotel de France to be an exceptional hotel with a very attentive staff. The breakfast was superb. The staff was always ready to assist. Our room was small (the bathroom was huge and well designed) but very clean and comfortable. The hallways and rooms were very quiet and we had no idea there were other visitors nearby. The location next to the Underground made getting around the city very easy. Overall, I found it worth the money and will return next year.
Decent hotel, great location
My wife and I stayed at this hotel in October 2003. The rooms and facilities were adequate, but the real draw was the location. It was the perfect base from which to explore the many sights and tastes that Vienna has to offer. Buses, trams and the underground were all a stone's throw away, and many sights were no further than a relatively short, pleasant walk. I would definitely stay there again.
Nothing spectacular, but will do.
I agree with the other reviews that this hotel offers location and nothing else extraordinary. I booked a "superior single" and was shown to a room with a miserable view, bad paint, worn furniture, and scuff marks on the walls. I immediately returned to the front desk and asked for another, and management politely complied by booking me into a double for the same price. This was much better, but didn't overcome my first impression of being taken advantage of. I cannot comment on the food, but I did have coffee sent up to my room--and that was excellent. At risk of sounding a prude, the TV seemed to have several channels of adult programming that were shocking, even though they were just ads for those who wanted to pay extra.
Location is good but this is not a 5 star hotel
The hotel de france is located directly at the famous "Ringstrasse" and also directly at a underground and bus station.
The hotel and the breakfast would be perfect for a 3 star hotel but not for 5 stars. Additionally when you think of the price you will be disappointed.
For less money you will find better 4 star hotels which are also in the city centre.
In a nutshell I would not recommend the hotel
Hotel de France claims it's a five star hotel but in reality the level of services it offers are closer to a 3 or possibly a 4 star on a good day. The price of the room is high and though they claim to have king size beds in reality they are simply two single beds put beside each other with sheets that do not fit the entire bed, making sleep uncomfortable.
Glory past and present
Stayed for a business trip. Both pleasantly surprised and some mixed feelings. Very pleasant is the whole atmosphere, real 19th century, and the excellent breakfast restaurant and friendly staff.
Less excellent are aspects of the rooms. (Un)locking my room door wasn't that easy due to the old fashioned iron locks, and the tapestry and curtains were a bit too ''classic" --> a bit stained. Link that with small elevators and long corridors, and you have the typical disadvantages of a monumental building where they are not allowed or not in the financial position to change THAT much.
Anyway, also due to excellent central location still worth another stay!
Stayed for three nights in October 2004. Great location! Right on the Ring and next to large public transportation station....street cars and underground. Just cross the street and your in the inner city and can walk to any major site or event. Very handy self-parking at large, secure underground parking facility.
