Vienna is packed full of grand architectural wonders – one of the most splendid being the iconic St Stephen’s Cathedral. Just steps away sits Hotel Lamée, a bijou design hotel that makes its own stylish statement and is a welcome change from the city’s many larger establishments.
Occupying a smartly renovated building, inside you can expect a shamelessly glamorous style that harks back to the 1930s. Step into the lobby, resplendent with dark lacquered wood and black-and-white photos of famous Austrian film star Hedy Lamarr, the hotel’s namesake. The high point has to be the hotel’s rooftop garden and bar, where you can sip a drink, get your bearings and marvel at amazing views over the city.
Back down on terra firma, the ground-floor Bloom showcases local Austrian delicacies, matched with delicious organic wine. Soundproofed guest rooms exude an understated regal air, with plush velvets, shiny quilts and gleaming wood panelling.
After a restful night’s sleep and a delicious breakfast, set forth into the city, much of which is accessible on foot due to the hotel’s enviably central location. With all this going for it, it’s little wonder Hotel Lamée boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
When we came to Hotel LAMEE and checked-in there was a feeling of uniqueness! When you go into the room and you are so excited that for the next few days it's all yours! You walk and see the doors, the carved basis of the bedside lamp, the magic shape of window. And you feel that there is a story here - everything is done for a reason.
What I liked the most about Lamee:
1. We lived in the very center and it was beautiful - everywhere you can reach by walk, all best places, atmospheric cafes, theaters, museums and parks for morning run just 5-15 minutes away. I don’t really like to go down to the subway, so it was a huge advantage for me. From the windows all festivities were visible, but at the same time it was quiet at night - the insulation works good enough.
2. Breakfast. At first glance, buffet choices seemed to me small, but then I looked closer and even found my favorite avocado, salmon, a million types of cheese, berries, and grain bread. So we refueled in the morning very well. Such a breakfast in a cafe would cost a pretty penny.
3. On the roof they have Lamee Rooftop bar with great atmosphere, cocktails, music, communication. You just have to go downstairs and you're already home.
4. Very polite staff (which is not typical for Vienna), who told us about the city and marked must-see places on the map. And advised us best restaurant and gelato of course)))
5. You can drink water directly from the tap, so you will not find bottles in your room. At first I was embarrassed, and then I saw that locals doing this and started too. It seems everyone is alive))))
Add this hotel to your unforgettable trip to Vienna!
Excellent value-for-money boutique hotel in central Vienna, just around the corner from the Stephans dome. Rooms are luxuriously decorated, quiet with great beds. Hotel has a good restaurant on the ground floor and a really nice rooftop terrace. With nice weather the rooftop gets popular also with non-guests. Considering the hotel only has one elevator - it gets to be a problem with long waiting times.
Our room was clean and bright with a tub in the middle of the room, which we didn't mind at all. It's part of the design. They provided all the amenities as expected in a 4 star hotel.
the only downfall is the elevator issue. The hotel only has one elevator for both hotel guests and those who were visiting their rooftop bar. We were on the 6th floor so it took a while to wait each time and most of the time the elevator were full. Wish they had a separate elevator only for hotel guests.
After a long search, viewing room categories and based on the reviews I booked a DELUXE room with this hotel in October 2018 for a May 2019 stay which to this hotel means absolutely nothing. Deluxe rooms have views of St. Stephens Cathedral (or so they say but I'll never know). I had several email communications with this hotel asking questions, then booked directly with them and final email communication right before we left to DOUBLE CONFIRM my reservation. We arrived at 1pm and were told our room wasn't ready. Returned at 2pm to a busy reception. We were given a room key and headed to our room. First "uh oh" sign the hallway has an old dull feel and the carpet dirty/not vacuumed. When I opened the door I was shocked to see a depressing tiny room with debri on this carpet as well. Went downstairs explaining there must be a mistake I booked a deluxe room. I knew exactly what I booked according to their website, emails and I had my paper confirmation with room type on it. I was told there were no more deluxe rooms available WOW!! I explained I booked a DELUXE room 7 months ago and cannot stay in that (horrific) room for 8 days AND confirmed my booking just days ago. So I was given a "prestige" room. The room is bigger than deluxe room BUT I did not like or want this type room plus it has an open concept style bathroom that I DID NOT want or I would have booked that damm room (not that I would have gotten it!) but since they gave my room away I booked 7 months ago and didn't honor, it was this room or the depressing room they tried to dump on me (and would have overcharged me for if I didn't know the room types). So we enter this "prestige" room the carpet and the table has debri all over and it feels dark, worn, bed is soft and the pillows are so flat you can literally fold it three times AND it's an open style bathroom. It took 2 days for them to clean the table and vacuum the floor! This hotel is not a 4 star luxury hotel and is way to expensive for what you get. When I travel I do rely on reviews for my decision but this one I got burned. The only positives for this hotel is location and WiFi. With all the good reviews for this hotel they must have booked years in advance and got the great rooms boasted about
It is a nice hotel, well located in Vienna with great people working there. Still, I have been badly surprised about the breakfast service : proposed in the basement of another hotel just in front, service there was not existing at all (just one person lost in his room tickets, more annoying than anything else), you have to do your coffee in a automatic distributor. Food not so great too, but still have to pay extra (25 Euro per person) which is not right when you already pay an important amount for the room. This is sad to end up my stay on such a bad note!
