"Wave and Wren's awesome getaway"
My girlfriend and I thought Newport would be a perfect spot to getaway from school for a couple days and we were proved right by the awesome deal we got at the hotel Viking. The room was a tad small, but it fit our needs just fine. The staff was super accommodating when it came to bringing us a fridge and extra soap, or advice on where to go for breakfast […] in the area. The hotel Viking was located in a superb area, my only advice is go when it's warm out, Newport in March can get a tad chilly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Newport Mansions"
I stayed overnight at the Hotel Viking - very nice staff and beautifully decorated room. Comfortable bed! The breakfast buffet looked wonderful however I had oatmeal and coffee, both good. I loved that when I checked out all I had to do was literally drive down the street to visit the Newport Mansions.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Hotel Viking - A Noble House Hotel Thank you for your comments. We hope you enjoyed your stay.
"Nice, but small and noisy room."
My wife and I stayed here before and liked it. This time we got much smaller, corner room overlooking the main entrance. All the noise from valley parking, people loading/unloading their cars was heard in the room. Also, with very heavy rain and the wind overnight, rain drops were bombarding our window with such force, we could not sleep. The bathroom […] was small with tiny sink. It obviously did not help with our expirince. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty good but not "that great""
The hotel looks fantastic in those pictures, but it's just a pretty good hotel in reality. Location is great. It's quite convenient for mansion tour, and you can pick up some good wine across the street. However, the dinner service is a total ripoff. Have your dinner at other placesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Early Spring Getaway"
We had a wonderful long week end at the Hotel Viking. the staff couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. The hotel is a lovely,well maintained little gem.the only complaint we did have was that the heater thermostat did not really work well which caused the room to be a little chilly in the overnight hours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel Viking is a wonderful place to stay. Convenient location to all sites. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and clean. I'll definitely be back. Thanks Hotel Viking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Other than the old food left in the mini fridge by a previous guest (smelled like rotten chowder) the experience was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is beautiful and located in a great spot. All was well with the exception of the heat, our room was 59 degrees for the entire night. We called maintenance and it was eventually fixed but the hotel did not apologize or offer any type of voucher.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Let's start with the good. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just about a miles walk from the very end of Thames and far less than that to get to the wharf or downtown. The staff was the model of service, always polite, professional, and willing to attempt to accommodate the guest. The not so good: The rooms are old and tired. We were originally […] placed in 402 which was at the corner overlooking 2 streets. The street noise was unbearable so we were moved to the only other room available, 403. The street noise on this side was much better but the room was still extremely loud! We could hear every conversation happening in the hall, every word of the movie in the room next door, and the obnoxious maid who was yelling at 7:30 am. The rooms are also very small-just barely big enough for a bed and a desk. Overall, I would definitely think twice about booking here again, because although the location was good, we did so little sleeping/relaxing due to the noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, great location"
The hotel is situated just a couple of blocks from Thames St. Perfect little walk to many shops, restaurants and the harbor. I wish I would've known they where having St. Patrick's day celebrations because my husband and I didn't get to enjoy any of the restaurants near by. They where all overcrowded with people that had WAY too much to drink. The […] staff was really nice and accommodating. They let us check in early, the valet were helpful and professional. The room was nice but not entirely clean. A couple of the pillow cases where dirty, which led me to believe they didnt bother changing anything. My husband did not think that possible. Did not order room service because it was ridiculously expensive. The price to stay over night was ok. Even though I really liked getting away, not sure I would stay here due to what we got for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No surprise here, the hotel is clean, comfortable, nice lounge and restaurant. We used the spa services as well as the pool, sauna, and hot tub. The hotel is conveniently located if you don't mind walking a bit to get to the downtown shops and waterfront...maybe a half mile. For the mansion's probably 1.5 miles or so but nice scenery, and homes to look […] at along the way. I would definitely stay here again. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Hotel Viking - A Noble House Hotel You have conveyed what we want to present to our guests, a warm comfortable and inviting environment with a cozy feel to it. Our location is a good spot for getting around Newport.
"Hotel Viking in Newport 03/15/14"
My wife and I couldn't be happier with our stay at the Hotel Viking. This hotel was just magnificent inside and out. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I would strong recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Newport. Excellent location made a bid difference also. Easy walking distance […] to most of Newport's hot spots. (Dining, Music, Shopping etc) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Newport and the Viking: a perfect combination. Great walking and seafood. The cliff walk reopens this summer after Superstorm Sandy repair. Looking forward to my next stay at the Viking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Viking in March"
We stayed at Hotel Viking during off season (winter) and thus stayed in the hotel the entire time. It was very quiet and private. My only complaint about the room was it was a bit cool (for winter). We turned up the heat to 75 but it remained cooler than we would have preferred. The bed was warm and cozy. We used the indoor pool and hot tub, both excellent. […] We also had spa treatments which were fantastic. We ate in the restaurant both nights and had very good meals. Our waiter, Michael, was great. The filet was okay, slightly under seasoned, but the scallops and lamb were outstanding and the crab cakes some of the best we've had. I'd recommend this hotel to others.

"Nice Hotel for Weekend Stay"
We stayed for one night and enjoyed a lovely breakfast while there. The food was very good and a nice setting to enjoy our morning. The room was very nice - and the bed was comfortable as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room, great location."
I enjoyed a well appointed room with comfortable bedding and furniture. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The Viking Hotel's location is in walking distance to several Newport locales. Off season rates are a real bargain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bartendar/Bell Hop/Concierge/Front Desk?Waiters"
Everyone except a female bartender were excellent and accomodating. There was a female bartender that had a personality that is not consistant with the remainder of the staff. She was unaccomodating and curt and the perception to us is she does not like her job and it showed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old world charm"
Room was small but very pretty. Bed extremely comfortable. Hotel had great ambiance. Was pleasant stay. Hotel in good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable 'n Classy"
Near everything and away from it all. A great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, elegant, comfortable hotel. Can't wait"
The staff could not have been more helpful. It has been a long since I have been so happy with my accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No complaints - great hotel"
Great hotel - character and comfort while also being clean and centrally located. We walked everywhere all weekend. We were snowed in and didn't care because the hotel was so nice. Can't fault the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of town."
Beautiful hotel situated in the heart of town. Friendly desk staff. Accommodations/room was comfortable and pleasant. Everything we needed was in the room and functional for the most part. Nice decor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, old-world, classy place!"
Off-season, this hotel is really quiet. The charm evokes a totally different era. My only complaint is that the air sanitizing machine in the room put out a smell that was slightly off-putting. Not big enough of a deal to complain to the front desk, though. The updated bathroom was quite elegant, and the bed was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
We booked this at the very last minute with no knowledge of Newport or hotels there. It was wonderful - the decor, the pleasant staff, the good live music at the bar of an evening. My only complaint - a small one at that - is that the bathroom was small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Goat Island. We drove though it was icy."
Spa was awesome!! Location is great. Across the street r lovely mom and pop dessert and food places.Genuine Expedia guest review
"highly recommend the hotel viking"
Hotel Viking is extremely affordable given its prime location in Newport. My girlfriend and I were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go from the Hotel. What I love most about this hotel is the unique guest rooms, you won't find another hotel with such great furniture and decorations that vary from room to room. Definitely not "cookie-cutter" style. […] Also, the staff was INCREDIBLY helpful and they all had a positive attitude. If you're looking for something to do in Newport, talk to Mr. Lyons, he is the head concierge and he knows his stuff. Bottom line is I would stay at Hotel Viking again in a heartbeat: great location, great rooms, great staff, affordable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best in Newport"

"Escape to Viking for a cozy getaway"
The whole purpose of our getaway was total relaxation. We found it in the comfort of the Viking hotel. This is a 4 to 5 stars hotel that combines the posh retro style of its interiors with the modern amenities of contemporary lifestyle. Service and food were top rating. The staff was courteous and on hand. We loved having breakfast in the second dining […] room which is exposed to sunlight. The only drawback was the live music performance on both nights we spent there that coincided with dinnertime and could turn out to be pretty loud and disturbing especially while trying to enjoy a fine dining experience -- my husband and I decided to step out to a different restaurant on the night of our arrival day. Live music may have been fine for the guests at the bar but not for all guests, considering that the dining room is directly connected to the bar with live music. We loved using the pool, the hot tub, the gym, and if time had permitted it, i would have tried the spa. As for our room, it was clean and comfortable but the bathroom sink did not have hot water running. We called the service desk and it was fixed immediately, except that we had the same problem a few hours later. Also, we kept hearing a strange sort of air pumping device noise although it was not so bad to be disturbing but bizarre. Overall, it was a nice experience with some fine tuning required on the few things mentioned, minor trade offs given the elegant beauty of a historic hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel rooms are a little small for 2 people but in general the room was nice and clean staff was very nice and they even recommended were to eat both places were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very large. A long walk to our room and got disoriented trying to get back to the lobby in the morning. The room itself was good but the bathroom was ridiculous. The shower and toilet were on one side of the entrance door and the basin was on the other. The shower side had a door, the basin side didn't. Not very hygienic if you can't wash […] your hands before touching the door handle! Also the shower side was far too small. Very poor layout. I would stay at the Newport Marina Hotel next time which was cheaper and just as central. A shame because everything else was great but a bathroom is a big part of what makes a hotel good Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very friendly staff"
Estate room was very nicely furnished. Similar to other reviews the room is smaller than expected and the bathroom is a weird arrangement - the toilet and sink were facing eachother! - other than that the hotel staff was very attentive to our requests and all were very friendly as we walked in and out of the hotel. The downtown area is a short walk […] away so we didnt really have to use the car at all except for teh last day when we wanted to do the cliff walk and ocean drive.

"What a nice surprise"
We decided to take a last-minute trip to Newport for a night and found The Hotel Viking on Hotels.com. It had high ratings and nice pictures but I have to say the hotel exceeded all our expectations.

"great customer service"
the staff was wonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was extremely friendly including the valet. Bed was super comfy, we had an appetizer and drinks at the bar and was reasonable.

"Excellent hotel. W"
Deal seekers are given rooms on the first floor (1000 room numbers). Ask for a second, third, or 4th floor room. Otherwise the experience was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
It is the best hotel we've ever had during our trip to the States. It is decorated elegant with beautiful colours and paintings. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. The room is very clean and bed/sheet/pillows are so comfortable, hotel staff are so kind and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

It was pleasant but Ill try someplace else next trip... They save water but I had zero pressure to wash my face and hands out of the sink...It was a Sunday night and I tucked myself inside to watch Downtown Abbey and the TV did not work...

"quick trip to Newport"
middle of January, cold and rain outside, but friendly and comfy and quiet here! Would stay here again. Far enough from the bustle, but close enough to walk to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location is great because the hotel is close to most of Newport's shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel, however, is very overrated and overpriced. The heating system was very noisy. It was a very cold night so I had to keep it on but the noise bothered me all night. Overall, my experience was OK but I am not sure if it is worth it staying there […] during the season.

"Loved this hotel"
The decor was beautiful, almost Alice and Wonderland-ish in the room we had. I never wanted to leave! My only 2 complaints are, no iPod Dock in room, and the hot tub in the pool area was awkward. Otherwise absolutely gorgeous in a great location. Priced resonably too!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice with some problems"
In general a nice classic hotel with great food and great location. Problems were the temperature of the hallways was very cold, room air was very dry, bathroom faucet dd not match bowl of sink so it was hard to get hands under the water. Booking on hotel.com disqualifies you from hotel packages that include breakfast and parking. Parking is $16 / night. […] Street parking is hard to find. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This was my first time in Newport and I definitely will be back and staying at the Viking. We stayed overnight for New Year's Eve with friends, we had a fabulous time at dinner and toasting in 2014. The room was so comfortable and cozy. See you in the summer!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near everything"
It's a nice hotel ,close to all only bad thing was the heat was set to 50 degrees and we had to turn it up and wait for the room to warm up but after 2 hours it was. Good to goGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location, classic hotel"
The Viking is a great choice for a weekend getaway and is within reasonable walking distance of everything in downtown Newport. The rooms tend to be on the small side due to the age of the hotel but have been upgraded and are nicely furnished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Viking Hotel appeared very majestic from the outside and the lobby seemed extremely pleasant. The Manor Room we stayed in was extremely small which made moving around for two people almost impossible. Although the bed itself was comfortable, the pillows were like rocks. The lack of a small refrigerator was also disappointing. The hotel staff was […] very nice which made our stay bearable. We would not return to the Viking for our next stay at Newport.
