Radisson Blu, Vienna: A Review

Radisson Blu hotel vienna
The Radisson Blu hotel in Vienna

The Radisson Hotels are a well know international chain of hotels known to offer high quality service and comfort. The Radisson Blu is a contemporary hotel right in the heart of the Austrian capital, Vienna. You can walk from the Radisson to many Viennese hotspots including the Opera House, The Hofburg Palace, and St. Stephens’s Cathedral.  The hotel, of course, includes a gym, sauna and treatment rooms, and all of the rooms include the modern comforts we have come to expect from a five star place like the Radisson.

This hotel is as central as you can get, in Vienna’s shopping district, and on the same block as two U-Bahn stations. Despite the centrality you will notice the hotel itself is very quiet, so you can be well rested for your Viennese adventures. In terms of adventures, you can be sure the Radisson concierge will have a good knowledge of the area, restaurant recommendations, and speak great English if you aren’t up to scratch with your German. 


Vienna boasts dozens of fantastic restaurants, but if you want to stay closer to home for dinner, try the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, ‘Sapori’. The Radisson offers an international menu but Sapori offers authentic Austrian dishes, too. You can enjoy a continental breakfast at the Radisson, but at an extra charge. Perhaps it would be better to step out and enjoy a traditional Austrian breakfast, and watch local life go by from one of the many nearby cafés.

The rooms at the Radisson are chic, luxuriant and comfortable with all the amenities you will need, including room service and high speed Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are also very spacious and a great place to enjoy a hot bubble bath before your night out on the twinkling streets of Vienna. If you don’t want to gamble with your accommodation and are looking for international, high-standard service, look no further than the Radisson Blu.
