Hollmann Beletage is more of a campus than a single, structurally cohesive building — which is to its benefit. The hotel expanded between 2003 and 2009, adding and adapting rooms to fill this Art Nouveau home, built in 1894. Old and new come together here: Interiors are clearly minimalist and modern but still come with splashes of bright orange linens and the rich weight of dark wood furnishings. Public spaces and lounge areas feel homey and lived-in rather than lunar or sterile.
Bed and Bath
Rooms at the Hollmann Beletage come in three distinct sizes and architectural styles: the Beletage, the Mezzanin and the Residenz. Mezzanin rooms are brightly and naturally lit, furnished with dark wood four-poster beds, with bold orange accents and linens that add a playful tone. Bathrooms are seamlessly part of the room, with a wash basin standing in the middle and a glass-walled shower just off the living space.
The hotel’s “Living Room” feels exactly as it should: a flop area or a place to engage with others. It includes a small library with dozens of current magazines and books bought and left behind by like-minded hotel guests, an honor system bar and a piano that anyone can freely go to work on. Should guests tire of Vienna, the Hollmann Beletage has plenty to entertain them: There’s an eight-seat in-house cinema, cooking classes that teach you how to pickle and preserve seasonal Austrian fruits and vegetables, and a small spa with a sauna, an open fireplace and a treadmill to help the weary traveler unwind.
In the Area
Besides obvious tourist landmarks such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Hollmann Beletage’s neighborhood is crammed with noteworthy historical places to visit. Vienna’s best shopping is within a few minutes’ walk, on busy streets like Graben and Kaerntnerstrasse. A 15-minute stroll takes you through the green expanses of Stadpark and brings you to the Michelin-starred Steirereck restaurant. For simpler Viennese fare (think golden-crusted schnitzel), visit the city’s historic Figlmüller restaurant. Finally, no holiday in Vienna is complete without a visit to at least one of the dozens of cultural institutes, such as MAK: Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art.
How to Get There
Very nice clean hotel. Rooms are spacious with clever wardrobes and bathroom. We arrived late and the key has been left for us, we’d been provided with access instructions via email and all excellent. Breakfasts were extremely good and the breakfast staff were very nice. The hotel is centrally located, a short walk to the church and just round the corner from the Hard Rock which we like to visit wherever we go. Our 4 year old daughter absolutely loved the rollercoasters at the Prater, me not so much.
Hollmann Beletage Hotel was a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay in Vienna. The receptionists were super helpful, the snacks appreciated, and the breakfast delicious. The hotel is easily reached from the airport bus, a sort walk.
Very nice & friendly atmosphere.
Perfect breakfast. Nice staff.
Very convenient distance from public transport. Close to many Italian restaurants.
The only problem was that the blinds were not enough to stop the light in the morning.
