What We Love
- An ultra-stylish, five-star Design Hotel™ with a stand-out facade in the very heart of Vienna
- The unique architectural design of this innovative Design Hotels™ member
- The excellent central location, just a short walk from the imposing St. Stephen's Cathedral
- Taking in stunning views of the city from chaise-lounge-style window seats
What To Know
- Sip cocktails and take in the city views from the rooftop bar at the sister hotel Lamee across the street
- It's a 10-minute walk to Vienna's main sights
- The modern design (think: oval windows) may not be for everyone
A member of the Design Hotels™ collection, Hotel Topazz alone makes a great reason for visiting Vienna. Blending cutting-edge architecture with a progressive, eco-minded vision and a superb location near St. Stephen’s Cathedral, this five-star Certificate of Excellence winner is more than just aesthetically impressive. Imagined by architect Michael Manzenreiter, the hotel was one of the first in a recent wave of modern eco-design in Austria’s capital. Cylindrical in shape and bejeweled with staggered oval windows, this boutique hotel stands out as a contemporary gem among its traditionally grand surrounds.
Inspired by the Viennese Modern Age design movement, the vase-like building conceals the seriously opulent interiors. Bedrooms are unsurprisingly edgy and luxurious, while the Salon is dressed like a private turn-of-the-century residence, with one-off lighting features and elegant couches where guests can relax with a newspaper and a few organic nibbles. And the delights don’t stop with the hotel itself. Located in Vienna’s first district, the historic heart of the city, this hip urban retreat puts you just footsteps from the grand museums, squares and Gothic churches of old.
Good to know
Please note that breakfast is served across the street at sister Hotel Lamée, where you’ll also find Café Bar Bloom and The Roof rooftop bar.
Please also note that tea and coffee facilities do not come as standard in rooms; however, an espresso machine can be provided at no extra charge upon request at the hotel.
How to Get There
This hotel is located conveniently in the heart of the city. Friendly staff and outstanding service. The cleanliness could be improved as the carpet under the bed needs steam cleaning, otherwise a very pleasant stay. Visit the market Mercur across the street, it even has its own wine bar.
My parents and I stayed 4 nights in two rooms in June. We had a fantastic time. The hotel is centrally located, we walked everywhere. The rooms were very modern and clean. Closets had ample storage. We were on the fourth floor and hardly heard any street noise. The reception staff were friendly. They also had a lounge for guests that had tea coffee and wine available. We enjoyed a drink there before heading out to dinner every evening. There are tons of restaurants within minutes of the hotel. We loved the modern feel of the hotel and the friendly staff, and will stay here again if we visit Vienna.
We booked 5 nights in the prestige room and were not disappointed in the slightest. We had the twin beds requested (which is an issue most of the time, for some reason), the room was kind of odd and that something we really enjoyed, from the round windows to the bathroom with a glass wall, it's a hotel we'll never forget! There is a good soundproofing, the doors have a padding and close very quietly, we didnt even know if we had neighbours or not, that's something I really enjoyed. Choices in pillow sizes and shapes is also always a plus. All the employees I've dealt with were really nice and professional, the breakfast was really good and the breakfast staff was amazing. We really enjoyed our stay, I highly recommend! The one and only thing I've missed is a kettle in the room.
