Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Regina Vienna
Lovely historic hotel in a great location
We just returned from 2 weeks in Austria. Stayed 4 nights at the Regina. We got a great deal through Precision Reservations, otherwise this type of hotel would have been out of our price range. Location was great; across the street was the Sigmund Freud park and next door was the Votive Church. Subway and tram stops were 1/2 block away.
The hotel is over 100 years old, but nicely maintained. Bathroom was new and spotless. Bedroom was average size but big enough for a kingsize bed and small table and chairs. You got the ambiance of an older hotel with modern conveniences (except air conditioning).
Breakfast buffet offered almost anything you could want: eggs, bacon & Vienna sausage, cheese & cold meats, lots of bread, rolls & pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit basket, and more. They have both indoor and outdoor seating.
Front desk was extremely efficient and courteous, but I wouldn't say friendly. They handled all of our requests (ie. arranging airport transfer, wake up calls, luggage pickup, etc.) perfectly. Most hotels slip up once in a while so we tend not to trust everything to go perfectly, but it did.
We would recommend Hotel Regina, especially if you can get the deal we did ($135. per night)!
Good value and great location
Stayed at the Hotel Regina with several girlfriends for a long weekend getaway in April 2005. The hotel is a great deal for the price, even given the current lousy dollar- Euro exchange rate. The location is terrific, right on the Ringstrasse and easy walking distance to most of the major sights. One very nice unusual feature is the double bathrooms in double rooms- no more waiting for your roommate to finish using the bathroom!!! The bathrooms are tiny though and seem designed for munchkins- but still it is great to have the extra facilities. The restaurant is also quite good although expensive. Decor is somewhat musty and old and could use updating, especially the public areas and hallways, but the rooms were very clean. All the staff that we interacted with were quite helpful and attentive.
The Hotel Regina is recommended for tourists who aren't looking for a luxury hotel and like convenience and a good value for their money. There is so much to see and do in VIenna, you probably aren't going to spend lots of time sitting in your hotel room anyway. I would stay there again though maybe by then there would have been spruced up somewhat.
The Charming Regina
Just back from a relaxing week's stay at the elegant Regina Hotel. Altough I expected a larger room , it was nevertheless comfortable and clean . All members of staff always greeted my wife and I with a warm friendly smile which made us feel welcomed in their fine hotel. It was also very pleasing to find that most of the reception desk staff spoke fluent english , which no doubt helped us tremendously when we seeked information about public transport , the opera and hundreds of other things. Another positive point about the Regina is that it is only a 5 minutes walk to the nearest tram station and a 10 minute stroll to the city center. Being situated just outside the Ring , next to a flood-lighted church and in front of a park , all contribute in making the ambience serene and romantic. And above all perfect for a quiet night's sleep. The buffet breakfast was both sumptuous and filling , just what you need before you venture off on your day's excursions around the city or further away. The old Vienna charm is everywhere in the Regina. I recommend to anyone who wants to be treated like royalty.
I stayed at the Hotel Regina for two nights in the first week of February. What a fantastic hotel! It is situated next door to a church, and very close to both tram and underground stations. There is a number of shops near by and an assortment of restaurants. The hotel itself was charming - very nice decor, becautiful lift, hepful people at reception. The room we stayed in was a triple and that was fanatstic. It also had a little hallway, good sized bathroom, a small table and was just the right size that I wish other triple rooms I've stayed in were. When we went out one night, the staff were again very helpful and pleasant to us. It is also a short walk to the sights of vienna and the main city. I would stay here for sure whenever I visit Vienna again. The third night of our visit we had to move to a different hotel, as were we there for a concert and needed to be closer to the venue. I enjoyed my time at Hotel Regina so much, I was sad to leave. An excellent price too as I found a good deal online.
Just returned from a short stay at the Hotel Regina. Booked a twin room which was spacious, well furnished and had excellent ensuite facilities. The room actually had two bathrooms which was quite a novelty!! These were rather on the small side though and perhaps it would have been more sensible to have made one larger one. The room was lovely and warm, which was great as it was snowing outside and the temperatures were low! The hotel is in a great location, just a couple of minutes walk to centre of Vienna. I arrived in Vienna by train at the Westbanhof station but through a combination of the metro and tram service was at the hotel in a matter of minutes. There is a subway stop about 200/300 metres from the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly, except the receptionist who checked us in, and spoke excellent English, which really helped out as my German is non existant! Buffet style breakfast was excellent with a wonderful choice and variety and again the staff were really nice. Enjoyed the time here and would stay here again. Got a fantastic deal on the internet which was less than half of the advertised room rates!
Great position, a lovely hotel
We visited in December as a group to visit the Christmas markets. The position was brilliant, no more than 5 minutes walk from the largest market by the rathaus. From there it was an easy stroll to most of the other sites around the centre, including the Spanish riding school. In the Hotel our rooms varied in size but were all clean and comfortable, and quiet, considering it was in the middle of the city. Oh and the all you can eat, buffet breakfast is just the job to set you up for the day.
True Vienna Ambience
I stayed at the Regina a few years ago and loved the hotel. I understand that Frued used to have coffee there daily. The room was very large and though it is an older hotel, it has retained all of the charm and is well maintained. I will definitely stay there again.
Great location - within walking distance of all sights and shops. Staff were very helpful - especially bar and restaurant staff. Would certainly go back there and would recommend
Highly recommend it.
We stayed at the Regina in June and loved the hotel--we even extended our stay a day. It had the charm of an old hotel (tall ceilings, period furniture, parquet floor in our room) but is well maintained and very well run. The location was also good, just beyond the ringstrasse and a 5 minute walk from the central section. The breakfast buffet has choices for all tastes and the restaurant, in general, is well worth trying for other meals, too. We booked through Orbitz and it was an incredible deal.
Regina is an imperial style hotel near the center of Vienna, just across the King's cathedral, one of the biggest and most beautiful churches in the city. Excellent huge rooms decorated in 19th c. style with solid german type furniture including a 2and1/2 large bed.Delicious and above average in size brefkfast buffet served in a romantically decorated parlor.Very helpful and extremely kind staff. You'll love the porter with his Austrian style moustache dressed in the late 19th c. uniform including a long apron tied up around his waist. Americans and Asians will love it as they will travel back in time.
