I just checked into the Hotel Bristol in Vienna and received one of the most gaudy, over-the-top hotel rooms I have ever seen. There are 4 chandeliers, 16 paintings, 7 doors off the bedroom alone, 30 mirrors, 1 borderline useless foyer, and about 50 pieces of furniture that don’t exactly ‘jive’ with my personal design style.
Call down for a bandage? They’ll bring you the hotel’s entire medical cabinet.
As over the top as some aspects of the hotel seem, this hotel has so many redeeming qualities. The view out the 7 windows overlooking the Opera House and city is spectacular.
The fresh flowers scattered about the room each day are a real treat.
And the service has been solid throughout. As gaudy as this hotel is, we can’t help but enjoy the heck out of this room and luxury collection hotel.
I’ll post a full hotel review shortly as part of an upcoming central European trip report including Lufthansa First Class, Austrian Business Class, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and the Formula One race.
