Hotel Bristol to get a more youthful feel

The Vienna city centre Hotel Bristol on the Ringstraße is to be renovated in stages according to owner Elisabeth Gürtler who said they wanted to give the property a fresh and more youthful appearance.

Announcing the changes Frau Gürtler who is also the managing director of the Sacher-Gruppe that owns the hotel said: "The building work is designed to underscore the hotels charm and charisma. It is aimed at giving it a fresher and more youthful feel."

Sacher took over the five-star hotel last year (2011) and she said: "We knew that it was a lot of responsibility as the Hotel Bristol was and is a very Viennese hotel in which society events take place but also which has international standards."

The hotel was first opened in 1892 and currently has 140 rooms including 18 suites where a single night cost €250. First stage of the renovation work will involve the banquet rooms.

The Hotel Bristol is the name of more than 200 hotels around the world. They range from grand European hotels, such as Hôtel Le Bristol Paris and the Bristol in Vienna to budget hotels, such as the SRO (single room only) Bristol in San Francisco. They are not a chain, except in Brazil, where Bristol Hoteis & Resorts has around a dozen hotels throughout the country with the Bristol name.
