The Grand Ferdinand on Vienna's famous Ringstraße is located directly on the Schubertring, in the centre of Vienna.
For business travellers, the hotel is particularly suitable due to its closeness to the Stephansplatz, the „Börsenviertel“ as well as the business districts, which are nearby.
Those who spend their meeting or business day outside the hotel are also lucky, because on foot and by public transport you can be in the city centre - or outside of it - within a few minutes, depending on where you need to go.
Tram lines D, 71 and 2 go directly from Schwarzenbergplatz in all directions, and the underground station U1 Karlsplatz is also just a few metres away.
The hotel in particular is perfectly designed to give you a pleasant business day. Business conversations can be held well both in the „Extrazimmer“ and on the Grand Étage.
Whether for seminars, press receptions or workshops - in our „Extrazimmer“ in the legendary Meissl & Schadn Restaurant you can have excellent discussions and meetings.The „Extrazimmer“ is also ideal for an exclusive setting, such as a business lunch, dinner or private celebration.
The room convinces with its exclusivity in the middle of the restaurant, where you can hold meetings with up to 20 people or, depending on the seating, even private celebrations with up to 60 people.
Wi-Fi is free of charge throughout the hotel, and a mobile beamer and screen as well as flipcharts are available on request.
The Grand Étage
Based on privately run Viennese salons, the Grand Étage on the rooftop of the Grand Ferdinand remains very exclusive and is reserved for hotel guests and their visitors. The culinary hotspot with an impressive panoramic view of St. Stephen's Cathedral and the Viennese rooftop landscape offers the highest culinary delights from early morning until late at night.
Parts of the Grand Étage can be reserved for smaller business events, product presentations or birthday parties.
The best way to start the day is with an extensive, rich breakfast in the Grand Étage - with an overwhelming breakfast buffet that offers everything your heart desires:
Starting from all kinds of breakfast classics from savory to sweet dishes. In addition you can choose from various egg dishes, like Egg Benedict, or sweet delights, like Blueberry Pancakes, from the breakfast menu.
If you're then feeling hungry after an engaged morning try the business lunch at Meissl & Schadn, where a daily changing lunch menu is offered on weekdays from 12:00 to 15:00. This ensures that you have enough energy for rest of your working day.
But if you are longing for a snack during the day, just pop into the bistro „Gulasch & Söhne“ for a goulash, a pair of original Lahner-sausages or a delicious schnitzel sandwich.
In the evening, after a successful business day, you have the choice of either dining at the „Meissl & Schadn“ restaurant or on the rooftop in the „Grand Étage“. Surley in either way you’ll enjoy your meal. If you prefer typical Austrian kitchen the classic, the real Viennese Schnitzel with all its sides, is a „must have“ at the „Meissl & Schadn“. Or, if you're more in the mood for international maritime dishes, we recommend the rooftop restaurant on the 8th floor.
Anyway we highly reccommend to finish your business day with an after-work-drink on the roof terrace while overlooking the rooftops of Vienna.
Our fitness room ist the perfect place for a work out after your business day, The high-end Technogym equipment ensures that you stay in shape even when travelling.
For runners, the city park is in immediate vicinity, and is also considered the local recreation centre of Vienna. The park not only invites you to go jogging, but also offers benches for resting as well as a restaurant.
If you prefer to go for a walk, you can continue from the city park to the gardens of Belvedere Palace where you can admire the magnificent flowers.
If you still haven't worked out enough, you can swim a few laps in our rooftop pool afterwards - the perfect way to cool down after physical exercise. And a cold drink at the rooftop bar with the best view over Vienna provides the perfect balance after a business day.
Falling into bed after a long day of work, tired but hopefully contented? This works especially well in our spacious Superior rooms. If the morning can't start early enough with coffee, a Nespresso machine with capsules is available in the rooms. The Superior rooms are equipped with a small desk for business guests, which serves perfectly as an office desk, for shorter meetings or calls.
We highly recommend our 45 m² suites with its magnificent view over the city from the private balcony. Preferably with an espresso in your hand, early in the morning.
In addition, all our suites are equipped with a free-standing bathtub, where you can indulge yourself after a busy day.
If you are planning a longer stay in Vienna and realise that you might not have packed enough, you are welcome to use our laundry and ironing service. If you run out of shirts, you will have freshly cleaned and ironed ones within a day.
