This stylish hotel-cum-art-gallery in downtown Vienna showcases works by sculptor Ioan Nemtoi and photographer Curt Themessi. The on-site restaurant features dramatic fire sculptures and a sleek glass bar, the walls are dotted with monochrome prints of ballet dancers from the Vienna State Opera, and the airy guestrooms wrap around a tranquil courtyard garden.
Bed and Bath
The 67 guestrooms overlook the city streets or the hotel’s inner courtyard, and high ceilings make even the smallest rooms seem spacious. All rooms are dressed with wenge wood furnishings and burnt orange accents and have sitting areas with desks and bright leather chairs plus docking stations and flat-screen TVs. The marble bathrooms are design-forward with hubcap-size rainfall showerheads and Japanese-style sinks surrounded by an orange glow of glass containers and the hotel’s signature brand of bath products, also in orange packaging.
The central meeting place is the Nemtoi Bar, a funky glass watering hole where you can sip delicious Viennese coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. The attached restaurant of the same name is the setting for the morning breakfast buffet — a groaning spread piled high with croissants and Viennese pastries. In the evening it transforms into an intimate space where you can dine on chicken with crispy gnocchi (a popular Austrian dish) and caramelized sabayon tart with raspberries. There’s a varied wine list, but you can rarely go wrong with a local Riesling. If you’ve overdosed on schnitzel and sausages, you can hit the well-equipped fitness center, which has a Finnish sauna and an infrared saunarium.
How to Get There
This hotel is a wonderful spot for a quick break in Vienna. Conveniently located about 15-20 minutes walk from major tourist attractions like the Museums Quarter, the Hofburg and the Vienna State Opera. The staff were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I stayed in one of the double rooms and it was comfortable, modern and absolutely spotless. The hotel relaxation facilities (sauna, infra-red cabin, relaxation room) are an added bonus! Overall a great experience and I will definitely come back if I'm visiting Vienna again.
Levante Parliament Hotel is indeed a great choice specially being closed to the heart of the city and yet away enough from that crowded centre. Staff are great and very helpful and they very much make sure you are well taken care of.
Rooms are very nice and the ciling is sky high since this is a historical building and it has that feel to it once you walk in.
Breakfast is fine and colorful and there are also Sauna as well as a gym available to the guests.
I very much recommend this hotel to everyone traveling to Vienna-Austria.
Thank you Levante Parliament and thank you beautiful Vienna.
I definitely recommend this place, especially for a quick weekend trip. Excellent location, ideal for sightseeing, stylish modern fixtures and fittings, very comfy beds, very friendly staff and nice breakfast make it a total go-to.
