With 434 hotels and guesthouses in Vienna, you’ll need a bit of research to find the perfect place to crash – or, simply read on for some quick insight.
Nearly 15 million nights are booked in Vienna each year, making it the eighth most visited city in Europe. From a cheap bunk bed at a hostel to an artful room at a boutique hotel to palatial suites, there is something for every taste and budget. Some advanced research is recommended to decide on which neighbourhood you want to stay in; but, regardless of whether your focus lies on the classic sights of Vienna’s inner city or you’d rather mingle with hipsters on the posh outskirts, we have the right place for you.
Between the splendid architecture and the slight arrogance locals always seem to display, Vienna is not exactly a modest city – so why not book something a little more extravagant for your stay? The Park Hyatt is located at the prestigious address Am Hof, right next door to the most important sights. They host culinary events starring local and international sommeliers and celebrity chefs, so you can skip the restaurant search and simply eat in. If you’re traveling with your kids, take advantage of their V.I.B. (very important baby) service and have your little ones treated to their own beds, toys and bathing accessories. After a long day of sightseeing, make your way the luxurious hotel spa, located in a former bank vault. The Bank Brasserie & Bar located here is worth a visit… at least a drink.
Vienna is old, but not old fashioned – at least not in the seventh district, which is the city’s hipster central. Overlooking the inner city is the 25 Hours Hotel, where every room is unique and quirky thanks to the designs by artists to resemble a circus arena. Once you’ve stored your luggage, make your way to the roof top bar, which is very popular with locals as one of the hottest after-work-watering holes in town. If you get hungry, either grab a burger from the food truck in the yard out front or enjoy a full dinner at the 1500 Foodmakers restaurant – it looks like it could be in Santa Monica but serves authentic Italian cuisine.
Schönbrunn Palace is Vienna’s most popular sight, drawing around three million visitors every year. However, there is a way to experience the Habsburg summer residence without getting in line: guests staying in the Grand Suite can experience the palace alone at night without stumbling over tourists posing for a selfie. Equipped with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and taking up a regal 167 square meters, you can access your imperial lodgings via an 88-step secret staircase. The inimitable atmosphere will make for a lasting memory – just step out on the balcony to overlook your empire (at least for a weekend).
With rooms named “Garden of Eden”, “Caesars Paradise” or “Love Boat in Saigon”, modesty is not a priority at the House of Time – although “room” might be the wrong term for the 280-square-meter suites available here. Enjoy an all-day breakfast served in bed or help yourself to the mini bar – drinks are already included in the price. There is no gym as weights and yoga mats are part of the furniture, letting you work out without anyone staring at your sweatpants. Thanks to the garage downstairs, you don’t even have to step out of the building – if only Vienna just wasn’t so darn beautiful. It’s centrally located in the second district – just over the bridge from Vienna’s historic inner city – so, at least you don’t have to walk far.
