No 1 Park Hyatt Hotel

Am Hof 2; 1010 Wien

Newest kid in town. Located directly in the center of the city. Former wellknown bank transformed into a luxury hotel with spa, pool, cigar lounge, restaurant and bar. Great location to be. Business&luxury Hotel!

No 3 Hotel LAMEÈ

Rotenturmstraße 15; 1010 Wien

Just turn around the corner or visit their great rooftop bar and you will have St. Stephans Cathedrale in front of you. Prices are reasonable and again- a great place to be. If you get tired from walking around in the inner city – just go back for a short nap or refreshing or visit the coffeehouse at the bottom of this building.


Close to:

Stephansdom (Viennas top sight)

No 4: DO&CO Hotel

Stephansplatz 12, Haas Haus,1010 Wien

This house is just opposite St.Stephans Cathedrale. No way for getting any closer! Some of the room face the Cathedrale – so you sleep face to face to THE SIGHT of Vienna. The hotel offers an excellent but pricy restaurant on top and a great bar in the evening. A place where society meets.

DO&CO Hotel Vienna

No 5: the 25hours hotel

Lerchenfelderstraße 1-3; 1070 Wien

Located not directly in the inner city – but close to some of the museums this very young and modern hotel – with the spectacular rooftop bar “Dachgarten”– is a fancy place to be. Each room is decorated in a different style – so go for what you like


Close to:

MuseumsQuartier (Viennas Top place for exepitions)

25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier

No 6: Sofitelhotel

Praterstrasse 1; 1020 – Wiener Stadtwerke

Even though you might not believe this hotel chain is not the best pick. This hotel will definitely prove you are wrong. Designed by the famous French architect Jean Nouvel.( it is maybe the best place to go for a dinner starting at 17:00 endingt late at night. But don’t forget to make a reservation at this rooftop bar &restaurant otherwise you might not be able to enjoy Nouvels great idea of setting up an great artwork on the ceiling of this building – which will create an endless painting over the changing skyline of Vienna. Definitely a MUST-DO!


Close to:

Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom

No 7 Ritz Carlton

Schubertring 5-7, 1010 Wien

Located on “the Ring” (a street that leads around the inner district) this Hotel might seem to be a bit outside the inner district. But it is closer than you think. Only a 5-10 min of walking you will find the opera house, which is at the beginning (or end as one might say) of Viennas most important shopping streets – the “Kärnterstraße”. Great – just newly renovated house. With a great RooftopBar on top.


Close to:

Wiener Staatsoper (Viennas world famous stateopera house)

For more detail please view:

The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna

No 8 Hotel Royal

Singerstraße 3, 1010 Wien

Very close to St. Stephans Cathedrale you will find this hotel very interesting. It is still a kind of older fashioned Hotel but has a great mediterian restaurant on top called “Settimo Cielo” and a outdoor terrasse. If you don’t wont to stay there – just go for a dinner or lunch. Its worth eating there.


Close to:

Graben Vienna – Shopping Street (Viennas world inner city walks)

Hotel Royal

No 9 Melia Hotel

Donau-City-Straße 7; 1220 Wien

For those of you who do not mind being located outside of the innercenter (or have some business to do with the UNO) this newly addes landmark is worth a try.Great view over town- Good restaurant & Rooftopbar! See Vienna from a different side.


Close to:

United Nations in Vienna (also a good place for sportactivities on the old danube)

Melia Vienna

No 10 Hotel Sacher

Philharmoniker Str. 4, 1010 Wien

The Hotel of Vienna, famous for its legendary status (meetingplace of high society) & its cake called: “Sachertorte”. It is a very old institution and one should – if not staying there – at least go there once and visit their great restaurant or coffeehouse and have a Sachertorte (which is included in the hotel). The hotel has a very nice SPA – in case you need a rest. Very good location next to the operahouse.


Close to:

Graben Vienna – Shopping Street (Viennas world inner city walks) and of course to the state opera house Wiener Staatsoper

Hotel Sacher Wien


Schubertring 10-12; 1010 Vienna (inner City)

Hotel with a pool!..Why going to Singapore for a great view-with a pool over the city– if the good is so close nearby. This amazing new kid in town (open since Oct2015) is definitely a “must-see”. Designed by the Viennese star architect Atelier Heiss is shows the effort of matching “old” and “new” in great ways. Go for a cold drink on a hot summerday and enjoy the beauty of Vienna.


Hotel Grand Ferdinand – Vienne – Autriche from Suite Privée on Vimeo.

… a great park for sporty activities or a great place to eat or just sit & relax called: Meierei/Steirereck
