I have stayed at the Vienna Renaissance Imperial Riding School on many occasions, and it is my hotel of choice whenever I am in the city. The train from the airport drops you 2 minutes from the hotel, an easy walk in any weather. Several tram lines offer quick and easy access to the city centre. The hotel has a...

We arrived at the Imperial Riding School in Vienna on Dec 26th, after 10 p.m. After checking in, we just got in our room and less than 5 min later I got a text message from my bank announcing me that an amount by far exceeding the total price for the 6 nights we booked at the hotel has been...

I stayed here for four nights in December and this is truly a great hotel. It was an old historic riding school back in the day obviously now converted to a unique hotel venue. The rooms are quite spacious and very comfortable with extra large bathrooms. The imperial club for Marriott elite guests was quite fantastic. It basically had around...

We wanted to see Vienna at Christmas. The markets etc. It's a good 35 minute walk to the main shopping area but it is fairly easy to find. It is also on a main trolley route if you walk up to the corner. Trolley 71 will take you quite close to the Opera House etc. There is also a subway...

The check in was uneventful and the staff was friendly. The rooms are typical for a European hotel. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean, the only problem was that they were not fully enclosed making it a little cold. The room on the very furthest end of the corridor was wonderful. The bathroom was bigger than most...

We stayed here for a week. I found the hotel very nice and the breakfast was decent. The lounge did not have great food, however sleep and bathroom facilities were extremely decent. I would return to stay here if I have too.
