On the world-famous Ringstrasse Viennese elegance triumphantly returns with Florian Weitzers "Grand Ferdinand". Here tradition is not about looking back, it is about celebrating forward, inspired by the idea of recapturing an era in Vienna in which nothing was more meaningful than life itself. With 186 gorgeous rooms including four suites and one Grand Suite, a refreshing outdoor rooftop pool (23 degrees) and 3 incredible restaurants the Grand Ferdinand is ready and delighted to charm its guests from different cultures and places all over the world. The inspiration comes from the passionate and experienced hotelier Florian Weitzer. With an eye for architectural treasures. This basis is what gives the Grand Ferdinand its unique and elegant charm: That a noble and modest building from the early 1950's transforms into an extraordinary hotel that reflects Vienna's rich cosmopolitan history in the present.

We only stayed one night while driving through Central Europe. We wanted a nice room in a location that was convenient for some sightseeing the next day. First the good: friendly front desk staff, possibility to park free in front of the hotel on weekends, good location for visiting major attractions, and a clean room. The desk gave us bottled water for our next part of the drive - thank you! Now the bad: Absolutely the strangest hotel room where I have stayed (I have stayed in road side motels, 5 star plus in New York and Paris, and most everything in between) - shower was a glass brick enclosure next to the bed, sink was in the room, strange decor in the style of bizarre. Fortunately the WC was in its own small closet sized space. No closet. Very dark. Overpriced - for one night or many nights. Pool is next to dining terrace on roof - we wanted to have a short swim in the morning - but not in front of people eating breakfast.

My husband and I stayed last week for 4 nights to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The hotel has everything you need and more. The service from all staff was professional and attentive, they took time to speak to us personally. Breakfast was great, served in the grand etage and we were lucky enough to have good weather and ate on the outside terrace(with patio heaters if needed) We also had dinner, which again was amazing. We also ate at the restaurant downstairs, one of the staff accidentally turned into me and could not have been more apologetic. I couldn’t end without saying we hired a Vespa for the day, this was the highlight of the trip for my husband and we got to see lots more of this beautiful city. Thank you so much for helping make our stay special.

I stayed at this hotel when I went to the opera one weekend. I wanted to be walking distance from most attractions and it was perfect. It saved us a lot of money on taxis. Breakfasts were the highlight of my day; they were so good! I ordered off the menu blueberry pancakes and eggs benedict daily. Buffet had an assortment of everything and views of the city from top floor were lovely. Very quiet rooms, comfortable beds and 2 kinds of pillows to choose from. The restaurant in the hotel is also wonderful. Elegant on inside tables and fun sidewalk cafes. Reservations are necessary since it is always full.

Room Tip: I ask for top floor and quiet room. Hotel was quiet anyway. Great location to museums and opera.

Watch out, they charge twice too much for the room and it’s very hard to get money back (I still didn’t succed) I don’t recomend this place at all. The hotel might be pretty and in good location, unfortunately they are highly unproffesional. I got charged twice for my hotel room. I called hotel immediately when I found out, they told me that it was a mistake and the amount of 420 euro will be unlocked on my account immediately. I waited 7 days and it was unlocked, but a day later they charged me again with same amount! I called them and contacted with booking, but they still tell me they don’t know why it happened and they need to figure it out. But time flies, and I still don’t get ant information, when I call the hotel, I only jest they can’t do nothing about it and ask for patience. I left this place 2 weeks ago and still didn’t receive my money back. I have never thought a big hotel like this can be such a fraud. I recomend everyone to pay only by cash there, cause it’s obvious cards and Your money on bank account are not safe there.

A really nice hotel with excellent staff who are very welcoming and helpful. The room was so wonderfully different and proved an excellent base while exploring the wonderful city of Vienna. The breakfast buffet has such a huge selection to cater to all tastes, including both hot and cold items. The terrace of the hotel provides a lovely view of Vienna while having breakfast or enjoying the rooftop pool which is a perfect extra to this gem.
