A boutique Viennese Art Nouveau hotel in an elegant 19th-century building, right in Vienna's beating heart

The Lowdown

Frédéric Chopin once said that Vienna is a “handsome, lively city.” The composer was right: Vienna is one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals, studded with baroque architecture, musical history and an intellectual legacy, thanks to great thinkers like Sigmund Freud. Chic Hotel Kärntnerhof, in Vienna’s city centre, keeps this creed beautifully. Despite its central location, the boutique bolthole, set in a 19th-century building with an Art Nouveau-meets-Italian-meets-French design flavour, is quaint and quiet.
The small property feels like a grand family home, with an eclectic range of art, an elegant parlour to while away the afternoon and a roof terrace to unwind after a day spent sightseeing. The building has an interesting history: after World War Two, it had a brief spell as brothel ‘Madame Rosa’. That’s the thing about Vienna, a European City of Culture – even the place where you lay your head has an interesting story. Hotel Kärntnerhof garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Steve S

hotel is in a great place to access all of the city, with a major metro station 2 min walk away. The whole of the hotel is spotlessly clean the staff at breakfast are very attentive. A special mention to Christian and Edward on reception absolute credit to the hotel. We had to leave early for our flight so missed breakfast and Christian made us a pack up to compensate a nice touch. The only issue is the lack of aircon in rooms, but a nice place to stay.

Peaceful, charming, friendly

Charming hotel, beautiful room, very clean and well kept, comfortable bed, friendly straff, good breakfast, excellent location in central historical Vienna.
Our room towards the backyard was very peaceful.

Very pleasant

Late 19th century building with character. Rooms well appointed with high ceilings. No aircon or fans which would be a concern in Summer. No fridge or mini bar, tea or coffee or iron in your room. No gym and the computer in the common room did not work. However this was offset by the quality breakfast and friendly service of the waitresses.
