Positive Reviews


Modern and classy.

The Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom in the heart of Austria's capital is an art hotel designed and decorated by some notable names such as architect Jean Nouvel and Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist. Many guest reviews speak very appreciatively of the starkly modern black and white interiors of the rooms and the avant garde décor. The bar with the painted ceiling is described as a must visit by several guests.


Great service.

The staff and the level of hospitality experienced by guests are of a generally high quality. There is great attention to detail and the staff is both attentive and helpful.


Luxurious hotel.

Guests reviews are very appreciative of the interiors, the facilities in the hotel and the rooms, the modern fixtures, the comfort levels of the room appliances and the bathroom. An ideal location means that guests can easily get from the hotel to most tourist spots and enjoy great views from their rooms as well. Luxurious facilities such as the spa have also come in for several compliments from guests.

Negative Reviews


The other side of the coin.

While the stark interiors of the Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom have inspired great admiration in some guests, others felt the opposite, saying that the black walls felt like the inside of a warehouse. The modern appliances and high tech fittings meant that some guests thought they were rather fiddly and incomprehensible.



On the whole the positive guest reviews far outweigh the negative ones though a few guests felt that the food and drinks were rather too expensive and the décor a little pretentious.
