St. Stephen's Cathedral is one of Vienna’s most cherished landmarks. It is the most important religious building in Vienna, its multicolored tile roof one of the city’s most recognizable symbols. Just across St. Stephen's Cathedral is the boutique Hotel Am Stephansplatz, a discreet building which design remains rather puristic, contrasting with the gothic-romanesque opulence ever so present at the platz. The location is simply phenomenal: the cathedral stands right in front, Mozarthaus and St. Peter’s Church are both at reach in a 3 minute walk, Sisi Museum less than 500 meters away. Most of Hotel Am Stephansplatz’s rooms offer great views to St.Stephen's Cathedral or Stephansplatz. Let us give you an extra piece of advice: try to plan your trip to late Spring or Summer. Vienna looks wonderful at that time of the year, and Hotel Am Stephansplatz’s rooms with a romantic terrace facing the Cathedral will be ready to be enjoyed at their best.

In summer, enjoy breakfast at a lovely garden, while the river runs quietly and the city displays itself on the shore before your eyes. Or enjoy a plunge at the Danube after a full sightseeing day in Vienna. Yes, you’ve understood it well: you can swim along the Danube River while visiting Vienna.The hotel is called Strandhotel Alte Donau, and it stands for a completely different Vienna’s experience: most of the rooms display unusual water and city views. The boutique hotel has its own private beach with deck chairs, sunshades and even a rowboat (do not miss the chance to go aboard and explore the Alte Donau). Free bicycles are also available for all those who wish to explore the cycling trail next to the property. And Vienna? Nice and easy to get there. Simply jump on the subway; a couple of minutes after you’ll find yourself at the heart of it.
The Austria Trend Hotel Savoyen Vienna stands proudly next to Belvedere Palace, its traditional Viennese facade still reminiscing the tales of the ages where it stood as the landmark for the former Imperial and Royal Court. The entire building underwent a complete renovation in which the design beautifully managed to combine the old days’ riches (like its famous collection of paintings of Klimt and Schiele) with contemporary style. Situated in the embassy’s district and overlooking the wonderful Botanical Gardens, the Austria Trend Hotel Savoyen Vienna is one of the best hotels in Vienna, especially if you wish to stay in a central area, but would rather sleep and relax a little far from the busy touristy areas. This comfortable hotel will meet your expectations: in a 15-minute walk you can reach St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Vienna State Opera as well as typical Viennese cafés. For full enjoyment at rest time, ask for a suite and delight yourself with the sights of Belvedere Palace or Botanical Gardens. And do not miss ‘Eugenio’, the restaurant named after Prinz Eugen: no matter the table you choose, remarkable Vienna rooftops’ vistas will embrace you.

Some hotels fit into the ‘a room with a view’ category. But very few can be defined as ‘a view with a room’. One example of this is Hotel Am Parkring; there’s no other possible way to commence this hotel’s description then by what you can see: it is immense. Wide panoramas spread the city before your eyes from St. Stephen's Cathedral to St. Peter’s Church or Karlskirche, up to the mountains that encircle Vienna. But the other amazing thing at this 4-star hotel is that the vistas never cease to accompany you: from the terrace (most of the rooms come with one) to the biggest window or the tiniest one, there is no possible way to escape the views at Hotel Am Parkring. Now, the location is also hard to beat: it lies in a quiet area (this boutique hotel occupies the last 3 floors of the highest building on Ringstrasse boulevard, opposite the City Park -Stadtpark) but conveniently close to the center (a 10 minute walk to Vienna Opera). What else do you need for a perfect Vienna stay?

Hold your horses if you’re looking for something daring, completely out-of-anyone’s-mind. Well, the guess is if you’ve stopped to find out about a place called 25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier, you probably are. Picture this: at the facade two sentences welcome you. One reads ‘Come as you are’ (remember Nirvana’s song?), the other ‘We are all mad here’ (as said by the Cheshire Kitten in ‘Alice in Wonderland’). And when you enter the place… my, my, my. The 25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier plays with the dreams and sensations associated with the world of circus, one of Austrian best cherished traditions. The interiors are surreal, amusing, sexy. Expect the rooms to be no exception with their pillows with provocative sentences (‘Let’s spend the night together’ may just be in your room), their vintage circus drawings on the walls, the colorful odd objects. Divided in M, M+, L, XL, Suites and Panorama suites, they offer beautiful views of the park, the Museums Quarter and Vienna’s skyline. Our favorites? The XL ones. They’re a kind of a 25-45 square meter fairytale … with an ‘old’ bathtub set outside on a private balcony. One last thing: all hotel guests have access to MINI/bicycle rental, free of charge. We wouldn’t think of a better way to explore the other sides of Vienna.

A cozy atmosphere that recalls Austrian traditional excellence in service, and a homey feeling. This is Hotel Royal, one of the traditional 4-star hotels in Vienna. It includes 88 comfortable rooms and 2 fine restaurants. At ground level, Ristorante Firenze Enoteca is known for its extensive Chianti Classico wine collection. But the one at 10th floor - Settimo Cielo - stole our hearts because of the incredible sights over the rooftops of Vienna. Nested in a lovely building owned by the Kremslehner family since 1931, Hotel Royal is situated in a prime location: at the beginning of the pedestrian area and the shopping streets Graben and Kärntnerstrasse. St. Stephen’s Cathedral is next door, other landmarks of interest (Albertina Museum, Mozarthaus, House of Music, Sisi Museum, amongst others) scarcely 10 minutes away.

Freshness and style. A clean, modern atmosphere in the center of one of the most monumental European capitals. This is NH Collection Wien Zentrum, a great 4 star hotel, located in one of the best spots in the city: Mariahilferstrasse, Vienna’s biggest shopping street. The NH Collection Wien Zentrum was renovated in 2015 and it is impossible not to stumble on its façade for it displays an amazing color explosion designed by the famous Austrian painter Christian Ludwig Attersee. The rooms are spacious (30 to 50 m²) and impregnated of contemporary details; a palette of whites prevails. Some of the rooms lively bring Mariahilferstrasse’s sights into your room. For wider panoramas, visit Vienna in summer: you’ll have breakfast at the roof terrace surrounded by charming city views. Looking for a cool place in Vienna? Now you’ve found it.
One of the things Vienna is famous for its river, the Danube. This international waterway, as it is classified, is truly remarkable; its geography has been the perfect ‘stage’ for uncountable pieces of art. The great Danube’s origine is in a German town at the Black Forest. The Danube passes by numerous cities and, amongst them, 4 European capitals: Belgrade, Bratislava, Budapest and, of course, our beloved Vienna. If this river fascinates you and you’re planning a visit to Vienna, make your reservations at the Hilton Vienna Danube Waterfront. This 4-star-superior hotel rises right in front of the Danube’s banks, being a delight to the senses. The views are spectacular; and the contrast between the quietness of the place and the expected rush of the town is incredible. There is an open-air riverside pool (in fact, try to plan your stay for Summer: Vienna is lovely at that time of the year, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors fully) and wonderful paths perfect for jogging or cycling that start directly from the Hilton Vienna Danube Waterfront. What about Vienna, you may ask? Pretty easy: only 7 minutes away by underground.
