Five Star Vienna hotels

Most popular areas in Vienna for 5-star hotels

Vienna is all about old European grandeur, and you’ll be right amid some of the grandest architecture on the continent when you stay in one of the 5-star hotels of the Innerestadt. This is the iconic old town area, an atmospheric place of churches, palaces, and museums, and the place where you’ll find almost all the high-end hotels in the city. Many are dotted along the Ringstrasse, or Ring Road – that famous boulevard which surrounds the old town area, and presents visitors with a sweep of majestic neoclassical buildings to admire.

Top 5-star hotels in Vienna

Situated right in the center of the Innerestadt, Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof is just moments from the Hofburg Palace. The smart rooms and suites make a welcome home away from home, while you can indulge in the time-honored Viennese activity of people-watching at the hotel’s pavement café. Vienna Marriott Hotel is a sophisticated enclave on the Ringstrasse, offering plush bedding and 24/7 room service. Hilton Vienna Plaza dazzles as soon as you enter the polished Art Deco lobby, and lives up to expectations with an on-site fitness center and relaxing sauna.

Where to find the best restaurants in Vienna

Lovers of hearty dishes will be in their element in Vienna. This, after all, is the home of stelze, or pork knuckle, and the famed Wiener schnitzel – a hammered out swathe of veal, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until deliciously crispy. For the real Viennese experience, go to one of the grand old restaurants in the Innerestadt and have it served up by formally attired waiters, and be sure to follow up with cinnamon-spiced apple strudel. Fine dining restaurants can also be found around the Stadtpark.

The most popular things to do in Vienna

Hofburg Palace is more than just a stately landmark. This imperial palace, adorned with Baroque and Rococo flourishes, was once a center of power in Europe, and home to the Habsburg dynasty. Enter this regal realm to tour the rooms once used by the rich and powerful, including the apartments of Emperor Franz Joseph, and see evening dresses, parasols, and silverware from a bygone age. Then, take a wander of Prater, the public park which is known to film buffs for its vast Ferris wheel, featured in classic thriller The Third Man. Mumok museum will appeal to lovers of fine art – behind its austere stone walls, you’ll see game-changing works by Expressionists, Futurists, and Cubists alike. Shopaholics, head to Kohlmarkt, which is lined with exclusive designer boutiques, and is made picturesque by the green domed gateway to Hofburg looming in the background.
