Ah, Vienna. Whether you already love the Austrian city or are discovering it for the first time, it doesn’t get much better than this. DO & CO, a member of the Design Hotel group, is located in the heart of this beautiful destination and just across from world-famous St. Stephen’s Cathedral – you can soak up 360-degree views from almost any point in the building.
The hotel’s exclusive DO & CO restaurant is hot competition for the city’s finest eateries, serving fare ranging from sushi to a modern spin on traditional Austrian dishes. After immersing yourself in the city’s mythical streets, the rooftop terrace and undeniably cool Onyx Bar (located on the sixth floor) are the place to sip a signature cocktail after sundown – just ask local hipsters.
As you would expect from such an established concept hotel, the rooms are stunning and glamorous, with ice-white cotton and geometric throws. These rooms have an atmosphere of urban glamour without being pretentious, and plenty of natural light floods in through large windows.
Your gourmet dining experience starts at the DO&CO Restaurant, where you’ll find a stunning range of dishes, each of the finest quality and presentation. Sample delicious Japanese food such as sushi and sashimi, choose your spices at the interactive wok station, delight in the tasty kebabs at the Oriental Station and, finally, embrace the local culture by trying traditional Austrian dishes. Classic elegance defines this restaurant, from the white tablecloths to the sweeping purple curtains, while wide windows make the space light and airy. The stunning Onx Bar offers picturesque views of Vienna from luxurious and comfortable seating. There’s a wide assortment of cocktails to choose from and lounge music to really set the mood for your evening. 24-hour in-room dining is also available.
You couldn’t ask for a better location in Vienna. The hotel is just opposite the beautiful St. Stephens Cathedral, with views out across the city from almost everywhere in the building. You’re only a two-minute walk from the Vienna State Opera and in a great location to explore the best shops and restaurants in town. The Holmes Place Health Club Boerseplatz, to which you have complimentary access, is just a ten-minute walk away.
How to Get There
This is a very modern hotel in the middle of Stephanplatz. The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful and make the stay enjoyable. The hotel is directly above an underground station so getting around the city is very easy.
We had a wonderful stay at DO & CO. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left they couldn’t do enough for us.
The Bar - It’s very popular (Fridays/Saturdays especially) due to the gorgeous decor and spectacular view of St Stephen’s Cathedral from the huge windows. This means you will need to book a table. We didn’t reserve and yet the manager made sure there was space for us. The cocktail menu is extensive, but if you just can’t decide the barman will ask you what kind of thing you like and surprise you. You definitely won’t be disappointed!
The Restaurant - It is considered one of the best in Vienna, and I would have to agree. You need to book.
The menu is eclectic and extensive. It includes fantastic sushi (a speciality of the restaurant) / traditional Viennese / steaks / Middle Eastern / Chinese and Thai / French. It sounds like it would be weird and almost impossible to do all of those things well but I assure you, they do.
I had crispy shrimp covered in spicy yuzu mayo with truffle salad. Delicious! I then had the Soho platter which was fantastic. My husband had the same starter, followed by a slow braised veal cheek with goose liver and pomme purée. It was so rich and unctuous. Very impressed. We didn’t have space for dessert but we did see them and they resemble those that you would see at any high end restaurant. We will definitely be eating here again.
To drink - I suggest you stay local and try the Sekt and Austrian wines. If you need some guidance as to what to choose for your taste ask the waiters who are extremely knowledgeable.
The Room - We arrived to find bottled water, a welcome note and two delicious apricot filled doughnuts.
Large bed (although it appears to be two pushed together) which is comfortable enough if you keep to your own side. Adequate duvet as the room is climate controlled. One criticism would be the pillows which are flat and not especially comfortable. It won’t affect your sleep but they aren’t great. Cute turn down service each evening where they replenish your water and leave Demel chocolates on your pillows.
The bathroom is nice enough. Underfloor heating, slippers, robes, hairdryer and toiletries all provided. Powerful rainfall shower and separate lavatory.
Amenities - There are two ‘mini’ bars in the room. One provides all of the red wines, spirits and non-chilled goods (including snacks) and the other is for chilled items. There is no Nespresso machine / tea and coffee facilities which I did find inconvenient. I would expect this in a five star hotel (and there is certainly room for a Nespresso machine on top of the chiller mini bar). It’s not good enough to have to order room service every time you would like a coffee. Having said that, the room service is incredibly prompt.
View - None. Our room looked on to an internal courtyard of other rooms. Other rooms obviously have views.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel. We had a wonderful time and the staff were so warm and welcoming - truly lovely people. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back or recommend this to friends and loved ones.
We chose this hotel for the location and it didn't disappoint. Views of the cathedral and surrounding area are stunning, especially from the bar. Staff have great recommendations, the room was great even with the crib we needed. Highly recommend it.
Having a special meeting in Vienna we have been booked in the Do&Co hotel by the company that invited us. The hotel has a great approach towards hospitality, genuinely friendly and helpful staff always ready to help. Design of the hate is very surprising and is unique. The rooms very comfortable and complete. Location can't be better right in the heart of the city.
Nothing else than respect for the staff and its management. A place to go back and enjoy the city.
Last but not least the restaurant is fantastic !
This hotel was everything we needed and more. It’s location couldn’t be better right in the heart of the old town with incredible views from the warm and cosy bar. Our room was spacious with a huge spa bath and comfy beds. Even if your not staying here a visit to the hotel bar is a must giving incredible views of the amazing church. Would really recommend this place if your looking for somewhere luxurious right in the heart of the city.
