The Vibe: Quiet and sophisticated, fusing the flair of the 19th-century building with its high, stuccoed ceilings, spiral staircase and cage lift intact, and ultramodern furnishings.
The Area: In Vienna’s happening yet refreshingly untouristy 8th district, near the Austrian Parliament and City Hall.
The DNA: An unusual concept, the Hotel Rathaus – Wine & Design represents the Fleischhaker family’s vinophile philosophy. At every step you will be confronted by the theme of wine in the modern design hotel: the wine cheese on the breakfast buffet, the wine guglhupf with your coffee, the wine cosmetics in your room. The individually designed rooms are each dedicated to a top Austrian vintner, who provides noble wines for the room’s fridges while the wines of the vintner of the month are discussed unpretentiously in the wine lounge over glasses of wine, and knowledge of wines and vintners is exchanged in an uncomplicated manner.
Suite-Me-Up: The fabulous penthouse loft suite, with private roof terrace, is worth blowing the budget for.
