Hotel Grand Ferdinand is one of our favorites in Vienna. Aside from being gorgeous and super charming, it is very well located and offers impeccable service. The hotel is a ten-minute walk to Stephanplatz, home to the famous cathedral and many other of the city’s attractions. It is also next to Stadpark, one of the most beautiful parks in Vienna and well worthy of a visit. Grand Ferdinands style is modern sophistication, rustic wood, velvet touches and leather couches. The restaurant Grand Etage, where a very good breakfast is served, offers panoramic views of Vienna, as does the small temperature-controlled swimming pool, which is open year-round. In keeping with the hotel’s style, some of the bedrooms offer open-plan bathrooms and clothing racks instead of wardrobes, so do consider whether this trendy style is for you. The accommodation sizes are European standard and not particularly spacious. If space is a criteria, avoid the Standard (20m2) and choose the Comfort or Superior rooms.
