To say that Altstadt Vienna hotel is set in a prime location is quite simply an understatement. The 4-star Austrian gem is among local boutique shops, bars and restaurants in Spittelberg, Vienna's Seventh District. It's a 5 minutes walk from the Museums Quarter and the ever-popular Ringstrasse and just 10 minutes away from Hofburg Palace. Owner Otto E Wiesenthal, an avid art enthusiast, lovingly infuses selective pieces throughout the Palatian property making it a one of a kind place in the district. In short, it's a gallery and hotel in one. Since it's opening in 1991, Wiesenthal has worked with local artists, designers and architects to participate in a new style of hospitality. Matteo Thun, Lena Hoschek, Gregor Eichinger, Lilli Hollein and Andi Lackner are just a few to name.
Sixty-one rooms and suites are individually designed and spread across 5 floors. Opulence is most definitely a detail with the Vienesse flair being at it's most optimum, most notably with the selected art pieces or installations, bespoke lighting, design furniture and more. Main room categories include "Altstadt Classic" and "Altstadt Reloaded", where designers have illustrated their impression of Viennese life in the room design. Sultry suites with stained oak flooring and damask patterned wallpaper among other details have been designed by South Tyrolean architect and designer Matteo Thun. The United Nations Suite, is one influenced by peaceful togetherness and comes with its own Whiskey Bar. The Lena Hoschek Suite was designed by the successful fashion designer herself and features retro chic.
Two apartments at the hotel can be connected by a single door, converting the space from to 170 sqm. Whichever accommodation you decide to stay in, WIFI, breakfast, tea and fresh fruit and then sweet treats in the afternoon can all be enjoyed by guests. There is also a personalised service for those that require further assistance and trip planning to ensure a great stay in the Austrian capital, and bikes and micro scooters can be arranged at the drop of a hat.
