Altstadt Vienna Vienna, Austria

“A thoroughly contemporary hotel encased in a traditional shell. Each room is entirely unique and individually designed by designers and architects. The owner's adorned the walls with contemporary art including Warhole's and Prachensky's. The food is excellent and locally inspired. A chic option. ”

“The genesis of this stylish hotel dates back to 1991 when owner Otto E. Wiesenthal was looking for somewhere to showcase his art collection. He chose a stately house with fine proportions and many of its period details intact, appropriately in the artists’ quarter. The airy interior is a happy mixture of styles from classic to avant-garde. In 2006 Matteo Thun revamped nine of the 42 bedrooms, giving them a stunning, belle époque-inspired look. But don’t dismiss the handsome older rooms, which have the best paintings.”
