Beautiful building

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Brian I. Solo - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The building is beautiful, but the service was tremendously disappointing. The room that I originally booked — SO BLACK — was not provided to me as there was a technical malfunction with the room and it was unavailable. Upon entering the room that I did eventually receive, there was an enormous dead moth inside of one of the two sinks in the bathroom. Around the moth was some black debris. It was disturbing. I ordered room service for breakfast on both days, however both times, when pressing the room service button on the telephone, I was transferred to the front desk who told me that room service was unable to answer the telephone at the moment. The front desk took my room service order, however both times, the order was wrong. The person who brought my room service order up to my room had to go back several times to correct items that were not ordered correctly by the front desk. The one overwhelmingly positive aspect to the hotel is the restaurant, Das Loft. The service there was absolutely fantastic. Other than Das Loft, I am not certain that I would recommend SO/ Vienna in the future.

Dear Mr I., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the SO/ Vienna. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At So Sofitel, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; your feedback is very important to us. Rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We would like for you to give us the opportunity to demonstrate our high quality standards; kindly accept a invitation for your next stay with us. We appreciate you sharing your concerns and are looking forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Sincerely, Mathias Blum Director of Food and Beverage

Great experience, except for some small details

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Alexandra A. Solo - 03/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My stay at SO/ was great and I always choose Sofitel with trust. The room looked great, the bed super comfortable, the view is amazing and the breakfast one of the best. However, in my room (1304) there were many stains on the chair and the armchair, which made me not want to sit on them. I think they should be replaced or cleaned, because it kind of ruins the beauty of the room. For a 5* hotel, stains on the chairs should not exist/be visible. I took some photos too, but unfortunately I cannot attach them here. Otherwise, nothing to complain about :)

Dear Ms. A., First and foremost: thank you very much for staying with us. As much as I appreciate your positive comments, please accept my sincere apologies for the less then spotless furniture you encountered. This will be addressed right away. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be even more pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, yours Christian Klaus General Manager

I met Florian Weissauer on my 1st night stay with SO. I was only staying for one night and was taking the train the next day to Budapest and then return to Vienna for two more nights. I had already booked with Hilton for those two nights. After meeting with Florian, we couldn't have been happier with the service we received and ended up canceling with the Hilton and stay the additional two nights with SO. I also met with the general manger Christian Klaus. He also went above and beyond. Stephanie and Helen were excellent. I will certainly stay with this Hotel again and will refer my family and friends to this Hotel. They have made our stay even more special in Vienna. We felt safe from Covid and very welcome. Thank you everyone!!

Dear Mrs. B., Thank you for visiting SO/ Vienna! We are delighted that you fully enjoyed your stay with us. Your positive assessment is very much appreciated and has been shared with the team, especially with Florian and Christian. It was a great pleasure for us to prepare you a wonderful SO/ Vienna experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further assistance. We hope to see you soon again.

gst0101ATS Business - 10/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Arriving in an empty hotel is very unusual, but it is the difficult reality now. I was greeted warmly and friendly, the room was prepared and check in was very smooth. I had a beautiful room overlooking the city with a welcome greeting from management. For my business meeting everything was perfectly arranged and catered for. Unfortunately I could not enjoy the highlight of the hotel - the loft restaurant on the top floor which boasts stunning views over the city, and normally exquisite food and great drinks and music. Breakfast through roomservice was equally good, as expected and check out and departure friendly and efficient as always. I hope business will be better for this and all other hotels and restaurants. Until then stay safe, SO/ Vienna. Thank you

Dear gst0101ATS, Thank you very much for sharing your positive feedback! I am delighted that you spent a wonderful stay with us enjoying our meeting facilities and the beautiful city view. Your nice nice words about our friendly and welcoming service are very much appreciated. We are looking forward to seeing you soon again at SO/ Vienna, stay safe!

The most beautiful panoramic view of Vienna

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

SERGE K Family - 11/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The most beautiful panoramic view of Vienna only in this hotel! I have stayed at this hotel many times, the hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to all the places of interest, an excellent breakfast in a restaurant with panoramic views of Vienna, stylish, laconic rooms with comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom. Pleasant and attentive staff, but the hotel management began to more formally treat regular guests, as for the Platinum member, if you had always done a double upgrade before, if it was possible, now everything is done clearly according to the rules, only one category more, maybe this is due to more stringent rules! .. It is unusual to encounter such a formal attitude in French Accor hotels , the impression is that they have become German and everything is done clearly according to the rules and a step to the side! .. So everything is fine, thank you very much to the entire hotel team, we will come again!

Dear SERGE K, Thank you for visiting us again and for sharing your experience! We are delighted that you had an enjoyable stay at SO/ Vienna. Your nice words about our breakfast, the rooms and our staff are very much appreciated. Of course, we want to upgrade our Accor members guests in the next room category. But depending on availability, we aren't able to do arrange this for all the stays. I am sorry if the check-in was too formal and you didn't feel welcome. Our Welcome Manager has been informed about your feedback and he will review our welcome experience with his team, especially for recognizing more our loyal Accor guests. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon with us. Kind regards, Peter Katusak-Huzsvar General Manager SO/ Vienna
