Vienna Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Vienna for luxury hotels

For the finest experience of Vienna, you’ll want to stay within the Innerestadt. This is the old town area, renowned for its panorama of grand, neoclassical and baroque landmarks, which reflect centuries of power and culture. It’s in this district that many of the city’s luxury hotels can be found, placing you within walking distance of major attractions. You could also opt for a high-end hotel in surrounding areas such as Josefstadt and Mariahilf, the latter being bordered by the bustling shopping street of Mariahilferstrasse.

Top luxury hotels in Vienna

Want to stay somewhere which has a truly remarkable heritage? Try Das Tigra Hotel, which is in the very heart of the city. Not only does it boast handsomely turned-out guestrooms, but it was also once home to musical genius Mozart. Hilton Vienna Plaza is another grand pad, whose gleaming Art Deco lobby is the perfect introduction to this luxurious hotel. If you want something less regal and more artsy, try 25hours Hotel at MuseumsQuartier, whose walls are peppered with vintage ornaments, and whose guestrooms are emblazoned with circus and theater designs.

Where to find the best fine dining in Vienna

Old-fashioned elegance is still alive and well in Vienna’s restaurants. This is a city that takes pride in grand European tradition – in the gilded coffee houses of the Innerestadt, bow-tied servers will bring exquisite pastries in surroundings which once hosted Sigmund Freud and other giants of culture. Golden, crispy schnitzels and long-braised beef dishes are among the traditional delicacies to enjoy in restaurants around Innerestadt and Stadtpark, while more delicate and artful dishes are presented in the city’s Michelin-recognized hotspots.

The most unique things to do in Vienna

Music lovers will relish a visit to Beethoven Pasqualatihaus. It’s a little haven devoted to the composer who ushered in the Romantic era, and presents original portraits as well as items owned by Beethoven himself. Rather larger is Schonbrunn Palace, a baroque fortress of art and history, which is almost a world within itself. Take the whole day to wander the imperial state rooms and the sprawling, emerald gardens dotted with extravagant sculptures, not to mention greenhouses featuring all manner of botanical exhibits. Mumok museum is for fans of more contemporary aesthetics – a trove of works by Modernist masters including Piet Mondrian, Max Ernst, and Rene Magritte. For a truly opulent evening out, head to the Vienna State Opera, where the palatial building and marble interiors are almost as impressive as the rousing musical performances themselves.

Best ways to get around Vienna

If you’re staying in the Innerestadt, chances are you’ll do much of your exploration on foot. Many of the most iconic attractions can be found around this district, after all. If you do wish to go beyond, to investigate more stately buildings or buzzing hipster areas away from the tourist crowds, then you can make use of the superb underground railway network, which makes getting around the city a cinch. Taxis are also readily available throughout Vienna.
