It’s of little wonder that a city with an intellectual legacy as deep as Vienna is brimming with Imperial palaces, Baroque opera houses, and world-class historic museums. But scratch beneath this impeccably antiquated veneer and find a city steeped in contemporary culture, bustling coffee shops, swanky vinoteques, and a spirited dining scene.
And it’s this merging of old and new that defines the crafted experience welcoming guests of The Guesthouse Vienna. Taking the cultural DNA of the cityscape, The Guesthouse Vienna has tapped into a creative set of designers and craftspeople to illuminate a stay informed by tradition but with a finger firmly on the pulse of the Austrian capital of today.
The design mantra of Home, Heritage and Honesty at Conran & Partners is clearly on display as no element of the hotel’s look is contrived. Here, Vienna is not only outside your window, it resides within, as seen in the classic bentwood chairs emblematic of the Viennese modern design era or on the restaurant menu, which features Austrian classics such as Schnitzel and goulash. The former 1950s student hostel, which houses this stellar new hotel, has now been given a modern upgrade.
Located in the 1st District, the hotel’s prime location puts the best of Viennese folklore at your doorstep; from the city’s infamous Sachertorte (chocolate cake), to the nearby Vienna State Opera, or some of the most ambient Christmas Markets in all of Europe, there’s no better time to say “los geht’s!’’
