The Hippest Hotels in Vienna

Patti McCracken | February 01, 2018

Don’t be fooled by the dirndls and lederhosen, the Viennese know how to be hip. They are a modest crowd, to boot, able to sniff trends like a bloodhound. The sudden rise of boutique and design hotels has unleashed boundless creativity, producing some of the most trendy lodgings and boutique hotels this side of the Danube.

The inside is more sleek and enchanting, and gives a wink to the Wiener Werkstätte tradition. The hotel has its own vineyard, and keeps each room stocked with a supply of wine.

25hours Hotel Wien

Why it made the list
