The Hotel Intercontinental in Vienna falls outside our standards, as we avoid hotel chains due to their characteristic lack of personality. However, the Intercontinental is so well located in Vienna, and our stay at this property was so pleasant, that we decided to add it to our list of recommended properties. The location is just perfect, right next to the city’s most beautiful parks, the Stadpark, ideal for walking or exercising in the beautiful gardens and admiring the sculptures. Its proximity to the historical center is highly convenient for visiting the sights, many of which can be reached by foot. The hotel style is classic with modern and contemporary touches in the bedrooms, as well as common areas such as the restaurants, cafés and bars, all lovely and cozy. Accommodations are spacious for European standards and, if possible, request a room facing the park or the Vienna Concert Hall. The hotel’s infrastructure and staff are excellent, and the Concierge was particularly attentive, helping us make restaurant reservations and organize days out in Vienna and surrounding areas.
