Expert review of Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof Wien

Five-star accommodation featuring contemporary design.

The youngest of Vienna's top luxury hotels offers a modern mix of individuality, serenity and style, in a central but very quiet location, and is a good choice for both business and leisure travellers. The neoclassical building originally housed a girls' finishing school but was later to become the illustrious Café Herrenhof, at one time more popular than the Café Central just down the road. From 1918, until the expropriation of the Jewish owners, Austria's famous literati chose to rendezvous here.

Location: 

Very central: adjacent to the hotel is the underground station Herrengasse. The Hofburg – former royal residence of the Habsburg family, a must-see destination for history buffs, is down the road. For brand name shopping eg Armani, Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton, the elegant Kohlmarkt is but a couple of minutes away on foot.

Bedrooms: 

Top-floor suites offer fabulous views across the skyline of the city centre. Accommodation in general is above average size. Rooms have self-adjustable air conditioning and come with coffee and tea making facilities, flat-screen TV and free WiFi. Deluxe rooms are slightly bigger, minibars are refilled daily, bathrobes and newspapers are supplied free of charge, whereas the superior rooms are a little bit smaller and don't get all the goodies. Overall the décor is in lovely soft-tone colours, blends of purple, greys, browns and limes. This property is less than two years old so nearly everything you come across is shiny, smooth and polished.

Public areas: 

The lobby is huge with a pleasant seating area across from the dark protruding reception desk.

Eating and drinking: 

The Café Herrenhof has been reinvented – without the patina I'm afraid, but at least the cakes are there. At night it becomes a piano bar. The Herrenhof Restaurant offers modern Viennese cuisine – and there are some fine and inexpensive restaurant choices in the immediate vicinity.

Leisure facilities: 

A sauna, steam bath, relaxation area and a fully-equipped indoor fitness room with treadmills, cross-trainers and weights are downstairs.

Service: 

Excellent English is spoken by the friendly and professional staff members.

Who stays there: 

Although I would recommend this primarily for business travellers, individual travellers will feel just as much at home here too.

Price advice: 

There are some tremendous price-saving deals available at short notice. Breakfast costs an extra 26 euros per person. Parking at the hotel is expensive. Alternative parking is available at Park and Ride car park in Erdberg, for less than four euros a day. Travel time by underground to the hotel approximately 10 minutes.  

Pros: 
Quiet area
Great location
Cons: 
Expensive breakfast
