4.5 25Hours Hotel Vienna

25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier, Vienna

4.7 Palais Hansen Kempinski

Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna


“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.”

Hotel Lamée, Vienna
