Budget-friendly Luxury Hotel

The Ambassador Hotel offers luxury accommodations at surprisingly affordable rates. This 19th-century hotel overlooks Karntner Strasse in the heart of Vienna. The neoclassical decor, crystal chandeliers, and dark wood furnishings contribute to the warm, welcoming atmosphere. Dine at the on-site restaurant or enjoy a cocktail at the Atrium Bar, which features high ceilings and big windows that provide amazing views throughout the year.

Inexpensive Rooms in the Center of Vienna

Enjoy authentic Austrian cuisine in the first-floor restaurant, which features an open kitchen design. The views of the winter garden overlooking the famous fountain by Raphael Donner transport guests to another world. For a quick, light bite, the Open-Air Café offers delicious food in a charming atmosphere, and the Viennese Grunderzeit-style decor of the Atrium Bar provides an inviting space that is perfect for unwinding after a long day of sightseeing. Room service is also available for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks.

Spacious and stylish guest rooms offer stunning views of the city. The guest rooms also boast the rich design style found throughout the hotel, including hand-picked antiques. Themed rooms, suites, and apartments are available in addition to the Vienna Classic rooms. Guests can enjoy air-conditioning, minibars, LCD TVs with satellite channels, free wireless Internet access, and in-room safes. Laundry service is available for travelers who prefer to pack light.

Nearby Attractions

Vienna's rich history provides visitors with a wealth of attractions. Albertina Museum, the Imperial Crypt, Haus der Musik, and St. Stephen's Cathedral are all excellent choices for first-time visitors and are close to the hotel. With both Stephansplatz and Karlsplatz metro stations only 200 meters away, travel time is never an issue between attractions.  The Ambassador's multilingual staff is friendly and eager to help guests locate travel destinations.

The Bottom Line

The Ambassador Hotel in Vienna has much to offer within its walls, and its central location saves guests time and money when they want to see as much of the city as possible. Many attractions are available within walking distance, but the metro station is just steps away from the hotel for guests who want to see other parts of the city. A train ride is a convenient way to see the sights when inclement weather arises.

Expert Reviews
Michelin Guide
The Ambassador is one of the city's most venerable institutions. The style is resolutely traditional, although never at the expense of modern comfort.
Franz Lehár, Marlene Dietrich, the Infanta Isabel of Spain, and Mick Jagger are just a few of the celebrities who have stayed at this old dowager (from 1866).
DK Eyewitness
Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach constructed this house in the late 17th century and in 1898 it was turned into a hotel... still one of Vienna’s most charming hotels.
