Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Vienna Plaza
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.
Very nice stay
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.
The breakfast was included in our rate. It was the standard buffet you expect in such a hotel. Unfortunately, the bar and the restaurant were under construction, so the restaurant was moved to the breakfast room and the breakfast was served in a conference room.
What we really enjoyed was the closeness to two subway stations and the tram and buses right in front of the hotel. While it is only a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Stephansdom, you can always easily hop on a tram or a bus to get to the Hilton or from the Hilton to any of the tourist attractions.
We would definitely recommend the hotel to other travellers.
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.
Really Nice Hotel in a Graet Location
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!)
The location means of course a lot of road noise, but the windows block out any racket very effectively. Rooms are fairly large and quite comfortable, up to Hilton's fine standard.
The staff is very polite, accomidating and efficient.
The breakfast buffet is OK, no more no less. The choice was underwhelming, but additional items could be ordered from the somewhat harried staff.
The concierge, Gabor, was great, very knowledgeable and effective.
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.

Another travel day is here. We walked to the bus (again they are not allowed in the area we are staying in) at 8:45 AM for our trip to Szentendre a riverside town about an hour from Budapest. We drove along the Danube. The town is a tourist stop for shopping and eating. We visited the Margit Kovacs Ceramic Museum then walked around the town and …
Our first stop of the morning was to the Jewish Museum of which there are two. In the courtyard are a couple of memorials to the holocaust which you can see below.
The Jewish museum divides it collection between the two but the first one we went to have the foundations of the 15th century synagogue and the medival Jewish Ghetto.
The best way to see any city on Shabbat for us is to Bike around. We had our passes for our stops and we were on our way to cycle the streest of Vienna. This city is made for biking since it has designated bike pathes are areas just for cyclists.
Our first stop was about 4 miles away at the Schonbrunn Palace. What an incredible site!!! Reminded …
Today we drove from Cesky Krumlov to Vienna.... Not much to report from the bus, although beautiful countryside continues. We did stop at a little photo/stretch legs stop and get bratwurtz sausages in a roll for morning tea, nice! At this stop there were river cruise boats stopped. We checked out the APT boat and spoke to one of the customers who …
... end. They were built towards the end of WW2. They are very imposing and quite contrasting to the beautiful and serene gardens and the throngs of people out lying on the grass enjoying the sun. A perfect place for a picnic lunch as I have just devoured my second strudel. I took the U-Bahn to the Belvedere, a huge complex of manicured gardens and Baroque palaces. I walked from top to ...
