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