  • 4.6 Park Hyatt Vienna

    Park Hyatt Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “The Park Hyatt Vienna has landed with a splash in a grand former bank just off the tony Kohlmarkt shopping street. It has 143 rooms (of which 35 are suites) that feature a slick but cozy mix of warm wood accents and shimmery fabrics and leather upholstery.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.7 Guesthouse Vienna

    The Guesthouse, Vienna

    Fodors

    “Smack behind the Albertina and the Staatoper, this authentically Austrian boutique hotel is an absolutely delightful addition to the Vienna lodging scene, with fabulous views of the heart of the Innere Stadt.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.5 Hotel Lamee Vienna

    Hotel Lamée, Vienna

    Fodors

    “This lodging is a nod to 1940’s Hollywood. Its muse was the late Austrian film maven and inventor Hedy Lamarr. At the crossroads of kitsch and cool, there is that glossy sheen to nearly every surface, accented by pink crushed velvet chairs and ottomans.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.7 Palais Hansen Kempinski

    Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna

    Frommers

    “Inside a building designed by Theophil Edvard von Hansen for the 1873 World Expo, the lobby appears as a bright atrium, with skylights beaming onto the tasteful lounge area and reflecting off intricate chandeliers. This place is luxurious, but without the Old-World pomp of some of its Ringstrasse peers.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.5 25Hours Hotel Vienna

    25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier, Vienna

    Fodors

    “Artsy, eclectic, and deliriously Bohemian, the clever circus-themed walls by Olaf Hajek are sure to charm. Each room contains extraordinary and exceptionally-illustrated wallpaper of old-time, big top themes by the German artist and deliciously quirky vintage furnishings.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Vienna.

  • 4.6 Do&Co Hotel Vienna

    DO&CO Hotel, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “Up-close views of Stephansdom extend from higher-priced rooms at this swanky hotel, and all 43 rooms come with state-of-the-art entertainment systems and multicountry power sockets. Some have in-room Jacuzzis.”

  • 4.2 Hotel am Brillantengrund Vienna

    Hotel am Brillantengrund, Vienna

    New York Times

    “Set on a quiet street in the arty Seventh District, the quirky Hotel am Brillantengrund has 34 rooms ranging from compact singles to small apartments that sleep up to four guests, all with private baths. Each room has a different décor.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.2 Grand Ferdinand Vienna

    Grand Ferdinand Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “Grand Ferdinand, abundant in burgundy leather, parquet flooring and offbeat details like a taxidermy horse, offers gorgeous rooftop vistas. Its 188 rooms range between a grand suite of rich tapestries and a Lobmeyr chandelier to what might be the city’s — if not Europe’s — swankiest dorm rooms with mahogany bunk beds and housekeeping services.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.5 Graetzlhotel Vienna

    Graetzlhotel Karmelitermarkt, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “Where electricians, lamp makers and bakers once plied a trade, the Grätzlhotel has injected new life into Leopoldstadt with ultra-cool interiors courtesy of some of Vienna’s top architects. Just around the corner from Karmelitermarkt, the suites are minimalist and streamlined.”

  • 4.5 Motel One Vienna

    Motel One Staatsoper, Vienna

    New York Times

    “Conveniently located by the State Opera and the transit hub Karlsplatz, Motel One Vienna Staatsoper offers immaculate and efficient digs.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.4 Ruby Lissi Hotel Vienna

    Ruby Lissi Hotel, Vienna

    New York Times

    “With a vintage-inspired bar in lieu of reception or concierge, the funky boutique hotel Ruby Lissi lives up to its “lean luxury” motto, offering uncluttered rooms in the heart of the city, just around the corner from Otto Wagner’s striking Postal Savings Bank.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Vienna, Austria.

  • 4.3 Magdas Hotel Vienna

    Magdas Hotel, Vienna

    Lonely Planet

    “How clever: the Magdas is a hotel making a social difference as here the staff who welcome guests are refugees. The former retirement home turned boutique hotel opened its doors in 2016 and hit the ground running. The rooms are retro cool.”
