    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    A grand and elegant Luxury Collection hotel in the heart of the city, the five star Hotel Bristol occupies a prime location opposite the Vienna State Opera. Opened in 1892, its commanding architecture is superbly maintained and immerses visitors in the hotel’s history, having welcomed such illustrious guests as Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Named after the British city of Bristol, thanks to its reputation as a centre of trade, the hotel borrows its motto from its namesake’s emblem: Virtute et Industria (Vitrue and Industriousness). The interiors have been sumptuously decorated to reflect this history; fine fabrics, intricate chandeliers, and antique furniture all contribute to the classically grand ambience. The Restaurant Bristol is recognised as one of Austria’s best restaurants, serving dishes crafted from delicious local ingredients in the evening, and catering to many visitors to the opera house. At lunchtime, the Bristol Wien serves lighter dishes, inspired by regional specialities; and, after dinner, the Bristol Bar acts as a romantic meeting place, characterised by its wooden-panelled walls and stylish atmosphere. All of Hotel Bristol's dining and meeting spaces combine excellent quality food and drink with stunning views into the city. At the hotel’s fitness centre, such views can be enjoyed during an energetic work out on the state-of-the-art facilities. Utilising exquisite crystal, gold, marble, and alabaster, guestrooms are as opulently furnished as the rest of the hotel. The stunning city-scape can be viewed from private balconies, whilst some rooms enjoy views of the State Opera. The hotel prides itself on its impeccable service and offers 24-hour room service, laundry and dry cleaning, and a limousine service. Perfect for a luxurious retreat in a bustling city centre location.
