Vibe: Anything but an oasis of calm, it’s a hipster’s heaven, buzzing with a fun playground atmosphere. There’s a pinpall machine and a coin-fed passport photo booth for your retro selfies, while a bench hangs on chains from the high ceiling like a giant swing.
Area: In the vibrant 7th district at the heart of Vienna‘s young, liberal and creative scene.
The DNA: A quirky design hotel inspired by the city’s Opera, Life Ball, Prater and countless music and theater stages, the hotel’s design is organically distinctive and creates a fantastical world of circus, spectacle and extravagance, with just a touch of madness.
Suite-Me-Up: It’s worth paying a little extra for the “Gigantic Panorama” rooms, which have free-standing baths and, behind the velvety curtains, views over the park.
