Rated 4 out of 5 by Gpb27 Not really 5 star
While this property was ideal for a recent stay with my family there were some disappointments which I think take away from this hotel being a 5 star property. It is more like a good 4 star.
The good points are that it is centrally located and it is ideal for seeing Vienna.
The rooms were comfortable and the beds were particularly so and seemed to send everyone off to sleep instantly.
The facilities are very good in that the gym is good as was the swimming pool. The concierge arranged very good and efficient transfers from and to the airport. The air con worked well and the shower was particularly excellent.
There were some items of disappointment. First the room preference I booked was not available despite me having a long and detailed conversation with the reservations clerk when I reserved the hotel. As a result I had to upgrade the two rooms we had reserved and although I was only charged for one upgrade the extra 25 euro per night was not what I had reserved.
The housekeeping was not good. When soap etc was finished it was not replaced. When we made a cup of tea or coffee the dirty cups were taken away but not replaced. By the end of the few nights we were gradually running out of cups and glasses.
The towels were of inferior quality and some showed signs of wear and tear. Not the kind of fluffy towels most 5 star. Hotels provide.
Like the cups and glasses, as we used the breakfast ordering sheets these were not replaced and for two nights we had to go down and ask the concierge for new ones.
The breakfast itself was average and it arrived on time every morning.
However one of the mornings there were several items missing.
This is a good hotel but it needs some more polish before it is truly 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kwan Great Location & comfy
Most of the touristy places are within walking range, if not, the subway is also very closed by. Room is big and comfy, the bed is a bit slumpy though.

Overall good experience - location is perfect for access to museums, opera house, Nachsmarkt - very central.
Staff okay, facilities modern, room good. The thing that we did not like the most was the shower - loved the modern, 2-head shower, hated that it was an open design that doesn't work. Bathroom fills with water, you have to deal with a pond after shower, not fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jksanibel Excellent Hotel at a great location
This Hotel represents the Starwood Group at its best.
Perfect with regards to all rating parameters.
All Vienna attractions are in walking distance.
Rooms, Food and Beverages in the Hotel are up to the highest standards. Modern interior and facilities.
If like the more antiquated, plushy Vienna K&K style hotels this might NOT be your hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by edwin928 Unpleasant
Breakfast way too expensive at euro 28, totally not acceptable.
Housekeeping rang our room bell to make up room at 8:30am-totally un acceptable to be awaken at such early hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gerhard Room
I stay regularly in this hotel. I always state in my reservation that I would like to have room 801 and if this one is booked room 803 or 805.
When I arrived I was given a room on the second floor without any explanation and only when I asked the check stuff made an effort to find a room on the 8th floor. I was then given room 811.
This however did not by itself annoy me. The check in stuff then told me that room 811 is the same as 803 or 805 and even when I doubted this insisted in being wrong. I knew then that when you go down the stairs the rooms become smaller. I verified this on the map which is in each room.
To be crystal clear, if for whatever reason my preferred rooms are not available, so be it. But being treated as a stupid customer who you can tell anything just to get rid of him really angers me.

Public Spaces were not comfortable or useful.
Extras in the form of internet and the like unduly complicated.
Handling of late checkout absurd

Rated 3 out of 5 by okay housekeeping lady's unacceptable behavior
On May 22, 2013, a housekeeping lady stayed inside of our room #821 from 1:10 pm to 2:30 pm alone. And she soiled the toilet and didn't flush well. I saw her droppings. I could not eat my lunch after that. I left the room at 1 pm. I put "please clean the room sign" outside of the door. I asked to the front desk staff that we need 2 mouthwash. She told me she will give the message to housekeeping. At around 1:10 pm, my husband went up to the room to put the printed boarding pass into the safe. My husband told me that the cleaning lady was already in the room when he entered the room. We visited nearby rose garden and came back to the room at 2:30 pm. The cleaning lady was still in the room. She still had to clean the room such as vacuum the floor. Bathroom was not all cleaned yet either, except new towels were on the rack. I went to the bathroom to use the toilet before our lunch at Shambala. I saw brown droppings were sticked to our bathroom toilet rim and toilet tissues were down there. I was momentarily so stunned and flushed repeatedly. I already talked this gross story to your evening duty manager at around 10 pm after we came back from our concert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martinaki Excellent stay!
We enjoyed our stay very much! We felt very comfortable and welcome! Very friendly stuff and very clean rooms. The only 2 things I would suggest to improve. 1) The bathrooms i beautiful however the shower is not very practical as you have water everywhere and there is no shower door that could be closed. 2) I would be really happy if the opening hours of the spa would be longer during the weekend. It closes at 7pm and we wanted to stay during the day outside and relax in the evening. Otherwise everything was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe50 Great location and excellent staff but...
Some rooms include open showers wich may cause a flood. We were upgraded because of this situation just on the first day (many thanks to Roman) but you should not offer this rooms without fixing this problem.
Nevertheless we enjoyed a lot the hotel and we loved our experience at the Le Meridien hotel in Vienna, as well as in other locations. Many thanks also to Katharina Grafl for her help during check out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robbie52 A hip, upscale hotel with in Vienna's best location
This hotel represents the very pinnacle of of what I believe the Le Meridien brand endeavors to deliver to its customers: subdued, hip and chic style, elegance and comfort, with superb and attentive service i
With a genuinely supportive and caring staff.
The service at this hotel was superb, and enjoying the benefits associated with my Starwood Platinum status, was upgraded to a wonderful suite in the 2nd floor directly across the the Avicenna Opera House. The location of this property is as good as it gets, and the room was perfectly appointed with very nice amenities and was serviced with excellent and consistent turn down service each if the 3 nights during my stay. Oh, and by the way, the shower in the main bath was WAY over the top, easily the best hotel shower experience I've ever had, with water projected from not only overhead, but at two other levels as well, providing a wonderful experience.
The breakfast buffet was easily among the best I've experienced anywhere in the world, with terrific offerings of pastries, eggs cooked to order, GREAT coffee and wonderful smoke salmon with a very nice assortment of cheeses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vittoria technical issue
this was a bad stay. Your airconditioning does not work. I wasted over two hours each day talking to your stay. technician does not have a thermometer to check the room tempretaure. It was warm and stuffy and they insist everything is working which made me really angry. The seventh floor corrodir is warm and stuffy and unpleasant when you enter from the lift.
This was the worst ever stay in my life.
The bathtub is too high to get in and out. Dangerous desing. Have any guests had accidents related to that? uncomfortable room design

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barry45 Great Hotel, great location
We loved the modern, unstuffy feel of this hotel with its modern decor and promotion of art. Our junior suite was just right for a four day stay with plenty of space including a dining table and chairs. The design was well thought out with all the facilities cleverly integrated. Very spacious bathroom and shower with a separate WC compartment. The staff were all delightful and friendly. Our location just across the road from the Opera House and near the Museum Quarter suited our needs perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by moreaboutart better than last time
The room was finally quiet.
Minibar wasn't functioning and wasn't filled with the drinks from the list (apple juice and normal coca cola missing)
Service at breakfast was very slowly ... or table was full of used plates and instead of taking them the staff started cleaning up other tables where no one was sitting anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrisbe Vienna hotel excellent experience
We so much enjoyed our stay last year we booked again and were not disappointed at all, except we now find a Queen size bed too narrow and wish we had upgraded when asked at Reception on check in. The staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and supportive, the breakfasts delicious with a huge choice and the rooms spacious and well equipped. We definitely will recommend it to friends, especially since the location could not be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fazchic Stylish as always
As expected from a Le Meridien, this hotel was very stylish and immaculately decorated. Staff was attentive and courteous. Didn't get to check out all the facilities as we only stayed for 1 night.
My only comment is that it was quite unnerving that the glass bathroom door had an unavoidable gap when it's shut, meaning that there wasn't much privacy for anyone using the bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by swett73 Small details
very good location, spacious room very tastefully furnished.
Just focus in the bathroom was more on design than functionality: no hangers, very limited space to put things (especially when two ladies are sharing the room), whenever the shower was used, the whole bathroom floor was soaked.

This was one of the best Le Meridiens we have ever stayed at. Very contemporary and clean design made it very appealing. Also the location is perfect if you are a tourist and just want to be in the center of all the activities. Great place!

We chose the meridian for a birthday celebration with elderly parents. The hotel couldn't have been better, and the staff were so helpful in every particular. The rooms were beautiful ( we had executive rooms on the 6th floor), the beds were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the situation was perfect - a few minutes walk to the opera and to many museums.
