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.”

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.”

4.3 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.”
