Vibe: RED is Radisson’s lifestyle brand with a happening, urban vibe.
Area: Set on the edge of the Leopoldstadt district, on the Danube canal which separates it from the city centre. The Schottenring metro station is in front of the hotel, giving easy access to the rest of the city.
The DNA: Radisson RED Hotel, Vienna occupies a landmark building whose white metal façade, gold-tinted windows and glass house on the rooftop set it apart from the rest of the buildings in the neighborhood. We are already fans of the hotel’s Istros rooftop bar, housed in a greenhouse-like structure with its terrace cantilevering over the floor below. The exceptional space offers a cozy yet extravagant lounge feel, which blurs the boundaries between indoors and outdoors with a 360-degree panoramic view of Vienna. In the courtyard, a giant eye-catching mural by Viennese visual artist David Leitner, mirrors the district’s urban surroundings.
Suite-Me-Up: If not a suite, be sure to book one of the (superior) canalside rooms which large bay windows double as comfortable seating to take in the views.
