Sleek design hotel with a chandelier-studded lobby, period features and a penthouse spa with skyline views
Housed in a building that used to be Nestle's headquarters, the Falkensteiner Wien Margareten brings together exteriors by British architect David Chipperfield and interiors by acclaimed Italian designer Matteo Thun. The sleek guestrooms have period features including parquet floors and teal and mustard upholstery, and the lobby is a chandelier-studded extravaganza (there are 78 glittering light fixtures in total). The look is called "Contemporary Biedermeier," a nod to Central European style from the 19th century.
Bed and Bath
The 195 guestrooms have a homey feel, with giant headboards covered in graphic print wallpaper, cozy beds and Midcentury Modern furniture. All come with floor-to-ceiling windows, Nespresso coffee machines, free WiFi and bathrooms with rain showers. The Suites (430 square feet) offer extra lounge space, with a spacious living area. On the beds you’ll find an aromatized “sleep well towel,” and you can order extra pillows filled with spelt or buckwheat with herbs and lavender.
The excellent restaurant Danhauser serves a mix of light Mediterranean and hearty Alpine fare, with specials such as burgers or Austrian tapas. On Thursdays in July and August everything from red snapper to rump steak is tossed on the grill on the courtyard patio. The quality of room service and the fresh breakfast buffet sets the Falkensteiner apart from other hotels in the area, but the standout feature is the rooftop spa. Modest in size but state-of-the-art, the penthouse sauna, steam bath, fitness room and lounge area open onto a gigantic rooftop terrace with a panorama of the Vienna skyline.
In the Area
You can reach Vienna's top dining and shopping districts within 10 minutes; the nearest subway stop is a block away. The famous open market, the Naschmarkt is a short walk or subway ride away, en route to the Opera. Or try the beloved Schloss Quadrat, a courtyard with four popular Austrian restaurants and adorable specialty shops. The legendary celebrity eatery Motto isn’t far either. For shopping, hit Vienna's longest retail street, the Mariahilferstrasse.
