4.5 25Hours Hotel Vienna

25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier, Vienna


“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.”

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.”

4.5 Hotel Lamee Vienna

Hotel Lamée, Vienna


“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.”

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.”
