Grand Ferdinand

Traveller (524)
Panoramas (20)
On the world-famous Ringstrasse Viennese elegance triumphantly returns with Florian Weitzers "Grand Ferdinand". Here tradition is not about looking back, it is about celebrating forward, inspired by the idea of recapturing an era in Vienna in which nothing was more meaningful than life itself. With 186 gorgeous rooms including four suites and one Grand Suite, a refreshing outdoor rooftop pool (23 degrees) and 3 incredible restaurants the Grand Ferdinand is ready and delighted to charm its guests from different cultures and places all over the world. The inspiration comes from the passionate and experienced hotelier Florian Weitzer. With an eye for architectural treasures. This basis is what gives the Grand Ferdinand its unique and elegant charm: That a noble and modest building from the early 1950's transforms into an extraordinary hotel that reflects Vienna's rich cosmopolitan history in the present.

Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

We found the Grand Ferdinand to be well located, a short walk to the Opera House and close to the exclusive hotels. The rooms are a little quirky with shower and bathroom (not toilet) open in the room. This may be an issue if travelling as friends. There are two restaurants

Good evening, we hope you had a great holiday in Vienna and you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your Feedback. In the near future, we will add a visual cover to the shower for more privacy. In case of the taxi we are really sorry for that issue. Do you have an invoice for that? Then we can double check this issue with the taxi company. We really hope that you will visit us again soon. If there is anything else we can do for you please contact us directly under: welcome@grandferdinand.com All the best from Vienna, Katharina Hettegger, Assistant Front Office Manager

Dear Mr. Drford, thank you for your time that you shared your experience with us. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay in vienna. Most important for us is, that our guest feel comfortable, home far from home and we are expecting a high service standard for our guests form the whole team.

We stayed at the hotel for four nights in one suite for our children with our nanny and a superior room for my husband and myself. The location of the hotel is the only good thing about it. The housekeeping service is absolutely terrible. They don’t fold the towels, they don’t
