Nice and clean getaway”

Breakfast, comfortable bed and sauna/spa

It was comfortable and nice. Strongly recommend. If the price lowers a bit, I would love to stay more often at Sofitel Vienna. One suggestion is to improve the mini bar. It is a complementary minibar and it has nice nespresso machine. However only water and juice was available. So although they say it is complementary, it is just adding juice in addition to what other hotels already provide: water, coffee and tea. For such nice and convenient coffee, it was a pity that the hotel only provided creamer and not real milk. It's a minor thing, but those small but thoughtful things can actually improve the quality of complementary mini-bar service. It will improve Sofitel's service to a more thoughtful and generous level.

Modern hotel with friendly staff”

The comfy bed, the wonderful gourmet dinner at Le Loft (highest floor) and the friendly staff

The staff at Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom Hotel were very welcoming, helpful, efficient and attentive to customers' needs. Dining at the restaurant on the highest level (Le Loft) was memorable; there's such a panoramic view of the area. Food and service were great too. The bed was truly very comfortable such that it was difficult getting out of bed each morning. The only snag was the TV. Changing of channels was painfully slow. On our first night, we had some issues with the TV set. But the hotel compensated for this inconvenience with welcoming drinks for two at the bar which is beside the restaurant at the highest level. This little gesture speaks volume of the hotel's efforts in making customers feel welcomed and valued. There is a steak house called El Gaucho, at the ground level just outside the hotel premise but still within the building. This provides another choice for dining beside Le Loft at the highest level.

A truly 5 star experience pricey but worth it”

Great bar and restaurant with fantastic rooms in the top area - worth the extra. The breakfast is great.

A really interesting place and just not he usual good Sofitel standard. The concierge made us. Working tour on the map which was good in the winter months. The rooms are very modern and have every feature. Make sure you are clear if you want to do dinner or a drink on the top floor as it is very popular with locals and you need to put your foot down if you turn up and there is some resistance and booking requests.

Breathtaking view”

The view, quietness, lounge bar.

Everything was great except the le Loft Restaurant Bar staff were absolutely shocking. Absolutely ignored by staffs while trying to make an order. Taking about 30minutes for them to come back to me. Interfereing a conversation by throwing me a check and the bill. I felt like it was an insult. They don't realise when I walk out of the restaurant. For a restaurant in internationally recognised luxury hotel, the staffs could have been better trained.
