My partner and I stayed at The Ring for 2 nights in mid January.
My first impressions were that the hotel is very well located and look impressive from the front. It is very stylish and modern without feeling cold and as you can expect from a hotel of this quality the service and cleanliness was impeccable. The staff greeted us with smiles and were happy to take care of everything for us, including booking taxis, suggesting restaurants and giving directions as we needed.
The room we stayed in was on the top floor with a great view out over the city towards karlskirche church in particular. The room was very spacious, the bed was extremely comfy. For such a central location it was also very quiet allowing you to relax in the evening. The hotel also has a great gym, spa, sauna and steam room, although we did not make use of all of these facilities.
The hotel also has a nice bar, but as with most of Vienna it is a smoking environment and this is a little off putting to non smokers like myself and certain travelling from the UK I have grown accustomed to enjoying a night out without the smoke. That said, again the bar staff were very friendly and we enjoyed our time there.
With so much to do on your trip to Vienna I am sure I will return in the future and The Ring would provide an ideal base for another stay. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Vienna.
