CSL’s Favourite Hotels | Hotel Bristol Vienna, Austria
The lobby at Hotel Bristol Vienna

With its turn of the century feel, large painting collection and Bristol Bar with its cigars and cocktails, Hotel Bristol, Vienna is a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle in the heyday of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Located next to the Vienna State Opera on the most famous stretch of the Ringstrasse, this historic hotel opened in 1892. With an old world feel and a longstanding history with the city, the hotel is a mix of art deco architecture (take a seat inside the plush elevator, the first electric elevator in Austria), traditional antiques and modern luxe.
