Vienna city tour: We arrived in Vienna yesterday afternoon had a quick trip around the ring road of the city, checked in to the Hilton Vienna Plaza, and then headed off to Grinzling for our evening meal and entertainment Austrian style. The food was terrific with all different types of roast meats, cold cuts and dessert. The entertainment was one …
Early start today so we could be one of the first groups to tour Schonbrum palace, the summer residence of the Happsburg family, who we have learnt a lot about on this tour so far. A very striking and huge building, we toured about 20 rooms of the 1,441 (!), with our local guide, who gave us lots of very interesting information. For a summer house …
Are condemned to repeat it......
Up again and it's raining. We went up to Eagles Nest, high up in the Austrian Alps it was a 50th birthday present from Bormann to Hitler. A beautiful drive up in special buses and then a 2 minute walk through a very cold hand blasted tunnel and then into a large ornate brass lined lift for the 47 second ride to …
Continuing our trip from Salzburg, we saw a few more sights from the Sound of Music, the gazebo from "I am 17...", the trees the children were climbing in, the church from the wedding, and of course the "Hills are alive..." meadow. Salzburg was really benefited from the movie.
Then we drove up very winding roads for a bus i to the Alps. …
... ones that look like a metal skirt... Oh fashion of the medieval period...
After adjourning for lunch, it was mack to museums, first the Treasury, followed by Art History. At the treasury, it was all from the imperial court of the Hofburg palace. So much shiny, and sooo many relics. I don't really get relics, like I know what they are, but I don't necessarily believe in them and my learning from the reformation and stuff really makes me ...

Top Class Hotel
My wife and I stayed at the Plaza for four nights during December and we had a thouroughly great time. The staff were very helpful and we had a very spacious room on the side of the Hotel. There was a wide choice at Breakfast and the staff were attentive.
The location was excellent and we Highly recommend a visit here.
Great location, wonderful city
Visited end of Sept, 2005. Hotel is on the Ringstrasse (sic)train line which circles the older Vienna. Hotel was comfortable and serviceable if not particularly memorable. But Vienna is the star, not the hotel and rightly so. I don't know why anyone would spend much time in their hotel. The cafes, restaurants and the walks into history weave a wonderful spell.
The room was fine; Americans must get used to the standard European double beds which push two frames together. That was the standard across Austria and Switzerland for our trip.
The service was good. Nothing was left undone or unresponded to. In fact the people working were friendly and often welcomed us and checked on our progress as we would run into them.
Second time here
One of the best hotels for its location and the gracious rooms.
The only spot was the terrible breakfast service, probably due to the closure of the restaurant for the summer.
Anyway, one of the best choices in Vienna.
We stayed at this Hilton for 2 nights. On request we were given a quiet room at the back side. Our regular room was very large and two extra beds would have fitted in easily. The room was clean and nicely furnished with the furniture being a little bit older, but therefore not the standard hotel furniture, but of slightly better design. They have marble bathrooms with the toilet in an extra room. The only thing I missed was a make-up mirror. The mattresses are new and very comfortable. You get down pillows and duvets. So, everything was really fine.
Very please with the Hilton Vienna Plaza. Stay there for 3 nights in August 2004. The staff was friendly and the rooms very big and nice. The only bad thing was the breakfast: overpriced. Other than that, it's a very good choice.
I have just come back from spending a few days at this hotel. I must say I was disappointed. The standard of the rooms wasn't what I would regard as 5*. As someone else said it is becoming very dated. The most annoying thing was being lied to when I complained about the air conditioning not working in my room. I was told it was broken in the whole hotel. The following morning I complained again and was told it couldn't be fixed until Monday! Then when I said how unimpressed I was I was asked would I move to another room. I agreed. When I got back to my room, to my amazement, there was a man on a ladder fixing the air conditioning! I moved anyway! Although the adverts for this hotel say you are provided with bathrobes this didn't happen. In fact on the first morning I discovered ...too late...that I had only 2 hand towels to dry with as there were no bath towels! The bath salts in the first bathroom weren't provided in the 2nd nor were the bolsters in the bedroom. On the other hand we suddenly accquired a makeup mirror in the 2nd room! I discovered on the last day I had spent 4 days showering with shampoo! Or maybe it was shower gel in a shampoo dispencer? Just little things maybe but it was so disappointing. On the plus side however the breakfast was great and the staff in La Scala were very nice as were the porters and concierge.
This is a really nice, fairly modern hotel in a great location directly on the Vienna Ring. THe city center is a 5-10 minute walk. Streetcars and subway stop very nearby. (BTW: take a 2 Euro ride on the "D" line stopping directly outside to final station in Nussdorf and enjoy any one of the non touristy "Heuriger" wine cellars. Far better than Grinzing!)
Thanks Hilton Vienna Plaza
This was the second time we've stayed at a Hilton in Vienna. I must say that this was one of the very best times we've had. Everything was either close or readily accessible by tram, train, bus or taxi. The staff at the Hilton Vienna Plaza was just amazing and MORE than accomodating. They helped make our visit one of the best trips I've ever taken...thank you so much Hilton for having people like that working for you. Look out because we'll be back!
We were treated like and given great service.
We visited Vienna with our two young adults, 20 & 17. We have been there once before. When it was time to leave and go home, they felt like the hotel was their house and they were leaving home. That was a quote from our 17 year old. To have a teen ager say something like that with all her friends and boyfriend waiting for her at home, you know the experience was a great one at the hotel. Thank you Hilton Vienna Plaza staff!! The location of the hotel is perfect, closse to all the monumental buildings and directly on the Ringstrasse. We can't wait to return and this is the only hotel we will return to.
Getting a little long in the tooth
I have stayed here a couple of time in the last two years. It is an OK hotel, but just not interesting. Rooms are starting to looked dated. It may have been "boutique" when it opened, but seems pretty 70's now. The location is not great. No stores close by. You have to walk 1/2 mile into the Center, to find anything. I am actively looking for somewhere else to stay in Vienna, the next time I go.
