Le Meridien Vienna
Travel Blogs from Vienna
From Positano: car-train-train-plane then Vienna, Austria. As we flew in, I was delighted to see that the leaves were changing and the beautiful landscape reminded us of NW Arkansas in the fall, except for the castles that dotted the hillsides from time to time. What a cool, old, clean city! We loved it, especially the old architecture with music …
Hape stayed here on Aug 20, 2012 during their trip titled: HP @ Vienna.
As I was planning my European tour about 3-4 weeks ago, Vienna was no where on my radar to include. Then I learned that Sade was performing her last concert in Europe during the dates I was meant to be there. When I looked up the dates of her tour, I had noticed that my timing would coincide with hers if I included Vienna as one of my stops. There …
Ok, well there are no hills where we are, but we are in Austria safe and sound. We took a train from Prague to Vienna and were lucky because we were the only one's in our compartment. I was able to watch a movie on my computer and enjoy the scenery. We left at 2:40pm and arrived here 7:20pm. We are getting better and better at navigating the …
... them in a big way and any building of significance will have multiple. After a meandering wander comfort food was in order so I ate 2 meals.
The next morning I encountered my first genuinely rude and inconsiderate dorm guest. After a late night I'd had in mind that a good sleep in would be what I needed, but this was not to be. This 60+ woman smashed her way into the dorm room making more noise than I could have if I tried and was in no way aware ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Vienna
This is the best hotel in Vienna after its recent renovation in 2003.
We stayed at Le Meridien for 3 nights in May 2004. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is in a great location right near the opera house and 5 minutes walk from the Graben. They offer tasty juice at the front desk in the morning and always have a supply of green apples to savor. The hotel decor is modern with a high tech, art deco style. The rooms are cozy in a high tech kind of way with pink and green accent lighting. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms set up well. I really enjoy the coffee pot they put in the room that allows one to make coffee at ones convenience. Since I like to buy the delicious local pastries and eat these with my coffee in the morning. The bathroom is beautiful with a large tub and unique open shower. However, the opaque glass did cause discomfort. The toilet is locate right next to the outer glass wall that seperates the bathroom from the main room and when one sits on the toilet others outside can see that persons outline and hear everything. We had guests in our room and the women said they were embarassed to use the toilet with us men sitting there so we left the room for a few minutes. Also, I had to do number 2 and I did not feel comfortable doing this when my guests would see and hear all so I went to the lobby. This feature did cause discomfort on several occasions. Hence the 4 star review. Otherwise and very nice place to stay
We stayed in the Le Meridien over Easter 2004 and would highly recommend this hotel. The Staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were great, we had a Deluxe room which was very spacious. The beds were great and there were lots of quirky features in the room i.e. pink and green lighting. The bathroom was heaven, everywhere was opaque glass and mirrors, massive roll top bath and a wonderful three headed shower, all state of the art. Lovely glass basin, couldn't fault it. We ate in the restaurant one night, a bit pricey but it is a 5* hotel! The cafe was great for coffee and croissants in the morning (not too expensive) as we didn't have breakfast included in our stay. It was very pricey if you wanted a full breakfast in the restaurant €23.00 each. Excellent location, what more can I say. P.S. If you want to see the Lipizzaner horses at a show, book in advance as the show was all booked up, but it was probably because of Easter. Also the Vienna State Opera house gets very busy, we couldn't get in there to see anything either, you can also book in advance for that on the web site. P.P.S. The Airport train is great as well.
Marvellous hotel, great location
The hotel is simply great! Convenient location in the centre of Vienna, opposite the opera house, it is within walking distance to all the major attractions in the city. The rooms are big, stylishly decorated and with a very good lighting. The swimming pool is small, but very comfortable. The entire hotel looks like a modern art museum!!!
Just came back from a quick trip to Vienna where I stayed at Le Meridien for one night. The design is absolutely fabulous and the location of the hotel is perfect. I can only agree with other reviews here, this IS a top notch hotel. The rooms are truly fabulous, with blonde wooden floors instead of the oh-so-yucky carpets found elswhere.
Now This is a Great Hotel
Stayed at the Le Meridien Wien for 5 nights for the New Years holidays absolutely loved the hotel. If you're looking for a very contemporary hotel with large rooms, great features, gorgeous interiors, inviting bar, etc., this is it. Staff was very nice and made the stay very enjoyable. Definitely the top hotel in Vienna at present. Would visit again in a heartbeat!
Great Location - Great Service - Will Return
We stayed at the Meriden right after it opened and had a great experience. They upgraded us to a suite which was very kind as it was a special occasion. The staff was young and the service was "casual" as one reviewer wrote - but we found that somewhat charming and small service "errors" were quickly corrected.
The location was excellent. The beds were great - firm yet very, very comfortable. The front desk got us tickets for all the events that we wanted.
We recommend this hotel and will return on our next trip to Vienna.
All about the design - but fun to stay in
This is a really fun hotel to stay in. Regular doubles have orange lion's foot bathtubs and king rooms have soaring ceilings with interesting backboards for all beds. The locations is excellent, only minutes from the pedestrian area on the RingStrasse. You pick up most tour buses at the Opera which is a 5 minute walk. Only complaint is that the showers do not have doors so water gets EVERYWHERE (but nothing extra towels won't solve).
Good Nights in Vienna
Stayed at the Le Meridien, Vienna at the end of November 03 a few weeks after it opened. Introductory room rate of 135 Eur/ night. Excellent location near City Centre, Opera, Museum Quarter, Secession Building.
Plenty of good value eating nearby. Friendly service however a problem with the bathroom which flooded because the shower did not drain properly and it seems almost all rooms have the same problem. We were not offered a non-smoking room on booking and asked to change rooms after one night, we also had to ask for bathrobes. Would go back but only if the room rate was right.
This is the trendiest and coolest hotel in Vienna at year-end 2003. I stayed here during the month it opened (November) and had to put up with dozens of quirks and mix-ups as a result. However, I was able to book at its opening promotional price, which allowed me to stay at this deluxe 5* property at the usual cost of a 3* hotel or 4* hotel in Vienna. I think a stay here is worth at most up to 300 euros per night, for a regular double room. If I had to pay upwards of 320 euros or so for this same stay, I would probably stay at the Imperial or the Sacher instead.
