In Vienna, you can strike a good deal at five star hotels. Vienna Austria is rated 25 per cent cheaper on average than Italy and Switzerland in the luxury hotel segment, and three times cheaper than Paris.
Historic palaces, most of them lining the Ringstrasse state boulevard, have worked brilliantly as luxury hotels.
Many of them, such as Hotel Sacher and Palais Coburg, have received a thorough makeover in the past years, while new modern luxury accommodation such as Do & Co and Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom was introduced.
If you are after four star hotels Vienna Austria is a great place as these sites keep getting more popular with visitors. They are the second most popular types of hotels here, following three star hotels. You can choose from a rich variety of boutique hotels, bourgeois town houses and larger hotels with international flair, such as the Astoria Hotel Vienna.
This is a fertile ground for demanding bargain hunters. The hotels are either centrally located or enable visitors to discover Vienna's nicest residential areas adjacent to the city centre.
Believe it or not: Even for lovers of edgy design hotels Vienna Austria has become a hot spot. Design hotels have mushroomed here in the past few years and many of them qualify as some of the best Vienna hotels. Choose one with a stylish twist to an authentic Viennese building for special local character.
With three star being the most popular category of local hotels Vienna Austria offers a good choice. In fact, one in three hotels here is a three star. However, as with four star hotels, quality levels and rates can vary considerably. My selection of the best middle of the road hotels, such as the Hotel Austria Vienna, will help you do this.
Connect with real life in Vienna by staying in one of these well loved bed and breakfasts (Pensionen) rather than the more non-descript one/two star hotels. Vienna Austria has more of these in central locations than you may think. They are usually family-run and provide an ambient and cosy atmosphere. Their informal touch and personal service is great for families, couples and single travellers alike.

Christmas in Vienna is big on seasonal markets, classical advent and Christmas concerts, and Christmas shopping. Most of the hotels in the city centre provide good access to those, though there are a few that are just perfectly situated. Other than that, why not choose a peaceful little bolt-hole in some romantic outskirts, from where to venture out? Learn more about Vienna hotels for Christmas.
