Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Palais Hotel, Vienna
Stayed four nights at the Radisson SAS Palais in September. Hotel is nicely situated across from StadtPark and a few minutes away from train station and walking distance to other city attractions. Room was clean and nicely decorated but was uncomfortably small even for two people. We were on the fourth floor and did not have a good view, so we had to keep drapes closed. Breakfast was not included in our rates and saw price was quite steep, but there is no shortage of cafes to go to anyway.
Staff was quite helpful and were able to assist us with our requests.
Will probably check other hotels next time just because of the size of the rooms.
Very nice, good location on the Ring
Stayed at the Radisson-SAS on the Ringstrasse in September, 2004, for 3 nights. Good rate through Expedia.com special offer. You're steps away from the tram and 5 minute walk to the U-Bahn. Hotel is very well appointed, friendly staff. Breakfast was not included in my rate, and after having ascertained the price (23.50 Euros) I decided to explore the Vienese cafes which worked out quite nicely and much less expensive. Room was small, but modern, quiet, well appointed and the A/C worked great. I had a non-smoking room but the room was on the same floor as some conference rooms and the smoke from these conference rooms fogged up the hallway. Surprisingly, though, the room stayed free of the smell. Would recommend but only at a good rate (I paid appx. 150 USD/night during the high season)
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in August. I've stayed in many top quality hotels in Europe, but overall I found this hotel rather disappointing for its category. Room and bathroom both rather small. Front desk too busy and staff not very interested - so without queuing for ages you had no hope of getting any info or advice. Breakfast buffet expensive (but that is the case with all these type of hotels) but in this case the breakfast room was overcrowded and waiters/waitresses seem to be students or trainees with not much clue - slopping coffee around and not refilling the various food supplies so that one had to ask for basic stuff like milk and orange juice because they had forgotten to top it up. All in all we loved Vienna but not this hotel so will stay somewhere else next time
European Charm - Excellent Service
We stayed at the Radisson SAS Palais in Vienna the first week of July 2004. Having stayed in various classes of hotels throughout Europe, we enjoyed the Palais' combination of consistent service and European charm. The staff was very professional, cordial and willing to accommodate. Our room was clean, attractive and adequately supplied with toiletries and linens. The facilities and services were above average as well. The Palais is conveniently located within walking distance of most attractions, including shopping and restaurants. In fact, subsequent to our stay in Vienna, we stayed in the Radisson SAS Beké in Budapest. Based on comparison and our personal experience at each hotel, we would definitely stay at the Radisson SAS PALAIS again.
Stayed here for three nights in mid April. Good location and nice lobby area. Rooms were on the small side. Food was average and staff could be more helpful. Quite often nobody at front desk. Door man pushed hotel taxi when the local taxis adjacent to the hotel were much better value. Problems with rate and had to show internet printout to secure. Had a quick glance at the neighbouring hotels and it did seem to compete well with these. Maybe the Westin a few doors closer the main centre has an edge on it.
A refined Hotel in the splendour of Vienna
I stauyed at this hotel last week, and the setting, food quality and room were of excellent quality. I was really impressed by the attitude of staff - helpful and polite. Breakfast was superb as was dinner especially good for vegetarians. This is one of the better Radisson Hotels that I have stayed in, and I would recommend it very highly. A satisfied customer who enjoyed the hospitality that was given.
I had an experince of staying in 5 stars hotels in many countries starting from Japan ending by Italy, As a quality engineer I should say that I got more than I was expected services in this hotel.
Average City Centre Hotel
Having stayed in many Radisson hotels throughout the world I found this one to be a very average city centre hotel. It is conveniently located on the Ringstrasse for easy access to the old town but the hotel itself failed to live up to expectations. It also had the unique touch of charging 10 euros for the use of its very small gym!
One of the best hotels in the world. Everyone was wonderfully accomodating. Everything you want in a palace and much more. What a magnificent place.
Perfect choice to stay in Vienna
Perfect chioce for elegant stay in Vienna - nice hotel, excellent hospitality, first class location - in total: spirit of old Vienna with modern touch

... upper balcony on each side and a few rows at each end. Hall was beautifully decorated and musicians all dressed in period costume. Train home. A long but good day. Thursday 9th October Off to Salzburg today so got local train to main station then the intercity to Salzburg. I think Vienna has the best train system so far. Local trains are so easy to use and easy to change lines with clear directions at all stations, and cheap at only €1.10 each trip for us ...
... AC going again, but Bradley woke up one more time feeling rather sick due to tiredness, and ended up vomiting poor thing. Afterwards we both managed to get a few hours sleep thank goodness, but were both pretty stiff and sore when we woke. Due to the long stop-over in the night, we ended up arriving in Vienna about an hour late, which we didn't mind too much. We grabbed a fruit scroll and some yoghurt and muesli from a shop in the train station and headed downstairs ...
Today we visited an Aida coffeehouse for the last time this trip, but shortly after we settled into enjoying our apple and cheese strudels, the heavens opened up, and all of a sudden, the coffee shop was chock a block full of tourists trying to get out of the downpour! It reminded us of our first week in Vienna, when it was pretty cool and rainy. It must be just about time to go home! We also stopped in (before the downpour) at the Maltese Church - a ...
... had recommended called Franz. It was really good, I had a sauteed vegetables rolled inside a crepe then baked with cheese on top, I think I am going to go there for dinner once more tonight. Following dinner I chatted with a girl in my room who lives in Abbotsford and then went to bed. Hope you enjoyed this post, will be catching up on all my Vienna posts this evening. Hope that you had a nice weekend, Alanna Ps scooters are togally a thing again in ...
... of the St. Stephan’s Cathedral and wondered through the ancient back allies and hidden court yards of the city. We really learned a great deal about the history of the city and about what it is like to live and work in the historic center. We even got to go INSIDE buildings on this tour! One nice feature is that the Catholic Church has decreed that no one can be charged for entering a church. So, in the smaller churches you could wander at will. In the ...
