Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna Review

This Renaissance Revival-style structure, built in 1873 as an exhibition hall, has been newly transformed (some 140 years later) into a luxe hotel under the Kempinski brand, offering 152 rooms and suites, two restaurants, two bars, a spa, and Vienna's largest cigar lounge. The interiors pay homage to the site's grand beginnings while also incorporating modern-day amenities like Nespresso machines, flatscreen TVs, and iPads in every room. The 8,600 square-foot, Ottoman-inspired Spa level houses several sauna and steam rooms, a gym, hydropool, and six rooms for treatments using Elemental Herbology and Daniele de Winter products. Featuring two live cooking stations and a farmer's market vibe, the Die Küche restaurants serves a menu inspired by grandmas' recipes, while the Edvard eatery incorporates global flavors. Named for writer Lou Andreas-Salomé, whose circle included Freud and Nietzsche, the Henri Lou bar is the place for cocktails and live DJs (Thursday-Saturday nights).
