Vibe: Interior concepts by Sir Terence Conran/Conran & Partners combine trend awareness, comfort and and functionality into a unique style.
Area: On Albertinaplatz in the heart of Vienna, just behind the State Opera House.
The DNA: A former characterless 1960s building that was once a youth hostel, the interior saw a major revamp by Conran & Partners, creators of elegant, clean lines in furnishings that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The lobby is tucked away neatly to the side, making it hardly noticeable that there’s a hotel here. Design classics by Wittmann and Oswald Haerdtl adorn the spacious rooms and create a unique “at-home” feeling.
Suite-Me-Up: The Maisonette Suite charms with a sloping roof, an intimate sleeping area on the upper level, a spacious living room downstairs for entertaining and huge lounge windows overlooking the Albertina and the Opera.
