The Melia Vienna hotel is located in the business district of Vienna, just a few doors along from the United Nations. The hotel can be found inside the tallest skyscraper in Austria, which makes for an impressive façade. The location of this hotel is fantastic if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of central Vienna, however if you’re looking to experience Vienna as a city it will take you approximately 15 minutes by taxi, or a short ride on the metro.

Upon arrival we were pleased to note that this hotel is extremely well kept. It’s modern and minimalistic in style which makes for a chic ambiance. The lobby area is home to a gorgeous spiral staircase that is gold in tone and extends over three floors, making it an impressive focal point.

We approached the reception desk and were swiftly checked in before being shown on our way to our Premium Room on the 14th floor. As soon as we opened the door we were greeted with floods of natural light coming in from the floor to ceiling windows. The only thing more glorious than the lighting was the breath-taking views over the River Danube. The room itself, is in keeping with the rest of the hotel, boasted a continuation of the minimalist décor found throughout.

“Watching the sun set over Vienna from your room is an impressive highlight.”

Our room offered a Nespresso machine, a complimentary minibar, a good size television, and of course free Wi-Fi. Slippers and robes are also available upon request. The bed provided us with an excellent night’s sleep. The bathroom was of a good size and included a separate bath and walk-in shower complete with polished marble and chrome fixtures and fittings.

In terms of other facilities, Melia Vienna also offers a good sized gym as well as an indoor pool and sauna, of which you can use for an additional fee. You’ll also find a restaurant and a bar on the 57th floor, providing impressive views over beautiful Vienna - the restaurant is fantastic place to visit for an evening meal. The bar has an outside terrace area and regularly has DJ’s playing if you’re looking for a livelier scene.

We thoroughly enjoyed or stay at Melia Vienna and would certainly return in the future. Considering it is a bit further out of the town, it really does feel as though you’re escaping the crowd; and there is more than enough at this hotel to keep you entertained of an evening without feeling the need to be closer to more nightlife. We would highly recommend this hotel even just for the views, if nothing else - watching the sun set over Vienna from your room is an impressive highlight, and one we would encourage you to experience for yourself.
