Below we have outlined the top 10 best Hilton hotels in Vienna.
1. Hilton Vienna Plaza
The Hilton Vienna Plaza is the best Hilton in Vienna. It is beautifully designed, has excellent staff, and is found in the best location for tourism. The club lounge is attractive and has good breakfasts too.
Rooms are large and well-appointed with large bathrooms, and a generous welcome gift with wine, water, and some sweets if you are a Platinum Hilton Honors member.
The executive lounge on the second floor is fairly large, and very comfortable, with breakfast and happy hour food and alcoholic drinks, as well as an afternoon tea with delicious Viennese cakes.
Everything in the hotel is very modern, clean and the staff are great. The hotel location is right next to the U-Bahn line, and right on the ring in the 1st district, so ideal for touring the city.
Hilton Vienna Plaza has a really nice bar and in fact, a good tip is to ask if you can eat breakfast in the bar area rather than the busy restaurant, which can get a bit overrun on busy mornings.
2. Hilton Vienna am Stadtpark
The Hilton Vienna am Stadtpark is a big conference hotel that lacks character but can do very reasonable points or paid rates at weekends. It is not as nice as the Hilton Plaza, but this difference is usually represented in the price. The breakfast in the restaurant here has a particularly good reputation.
The location might be the best thing about this hotel, as the building it is housed in is a rather ugly building and the executive lounge is fairly small. In fact, the executive lounge has a very similar food offering to the Hilton Plaza with the usual breakfast and happy hour food but also a spectacular afternoon tea with Viennese cakes. Sadly the size of this lounge lets it down.
The hotel can be found right across from a large transit center. It is about a minute walk away from the hotel and the U Bahn stops here along with the airport express. You can take the U Bahn, S Bahn, and Tram system pretty much everywhere in the city. There are also plenty of fantastic restaurants within a short walk too. Don’t miss Schoenbrunn palace and gardens, which is a lovely place to spend a sunny day.
3. Hilton Danube
The Danube Hilton is a bit of a river cruising factory but can offer the best value of the Hilton hotels in Vienna. It often comes in at half the price of the Plaza. It also offers a lovely waterfront location which is very appealing and it’s not far to walk to stadion station to get metro into downtown Vienna, but do be aware, this hotel is out in the sticks and quite far from the center of town, so you can’t walk into town.
This more “difficult” location is somewhat made up for by the wonderful views of the Danube from many of the rooms and from the executive club lounge.
The club lounge here is also excellent and at the very top of the hotel. Access includes a cooked breakfast in the morning, cakes, and snacks during the day and two hours of canapes, desserts, and alcoholic drinks during happy hour (including spirits and prosecco).
