Hotel Bristol

Kärntner Ring 1, 1010 Wien, Austria

Located just across from the famous Vienna State Opera, Hotel Bristol exemplifies classic Viennese charm and grandeur. A part of the Luxury Collection, Hotel Bristol offers the chance to stay in elegant art deco style or more classic Viennese period rooms with a noble ambience. A restoration by interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has revived some of the original art deco style and underlines the elegance the hotel has been known for since its opening in 1892. Five new spacious Bristol Suites, designed by Pierre Yves Rochon, offer floor-to-ceiling windows and a panoramic view of the Opera and bustling Ringstraße.

While all the rooms are stunning, guests will want to explore. Open spaces—the foyer, salons, and stairways—reflect beautiful design details, marble floors, and artwork. Take time to savor a meal in the Bristol Lounge, or gather for drinks after the opera in the intimate and plush Bristol Bar.
