Stayed for 3 nights. Good thing about this hotel, it accepted us with all 3 dogs. Service was good. Spa was ok, but could have been a bit bigger for the size of the hotel. Restaurant and view, just perfect. All in all, 5 min walk away from city centre

This is a really great value hotel. The room are very cool and well appointed a d the bed is big and comfy. But the real treat is on the 18 th floor where the bar and restuarant has the best view in Vienna. The view is particularly special at night. The service is excellent and the gym ok without... More

My partner and I stayed here in July 2015 for a birthday. Check in was very quick, and we were in our Luxury Gray Room within a few minutes of being in the hotel. The room was finished to a very high quality, but the main draw was the utterly amazing views of Vienna, including St Stephens Cathedral and the... More

We spent 3 nights here, over the New Year period. We were allocated one of the lovely Black and White rooms, I think on the 15th floor, which was quite spectacular. We found all staff courteous and friendly, and our greeting on arrival, professional and helpful This is a great place to stay, as the City is within comfortable walking... More

The reception could not have been friendlier or more helpful on arrival. In fact the staff In general are professional and responsive. If you love ultra modern hotels you will love the Sofitel Vienna. Most rooms have fantastic views over the city. The architect has in some cases prioritised design over practicality. The bathrooms in particular have issues that need... More

We stayed in one of the Black Suites on the 11th floor. Amazing modern minimalist design. The rooms are open plan with breathtaking views of Vienna's city centre, the Danube, and St. Stephen's Cathedral. You really feel comfortable. Service is great. Location is perfect; the city centre is accessible by foot. Breakfast is really good.

Great views over the otherwise flat city from high floor rooms and the Loft restaurant at the top. Rooms spacious and modern though at an eye-watering price. Under our TV were what looked like various AV/USB input sockets so we tried to use a USB stick to watch a video. There were no instructions in the room guide so we... More

My room was on the 16th floor overlooking Vienna. The restaurant on the top floor is breathtaking. Especially the sunrise was wonderful. Service was excellent and the room was very stylish and big. A true 5 star hotel.

At 500 euro per night our expectations were VERY high. However, although the hotel is conveniently situated and has superb views from the 18th floor ( Le Loft restaurant), we were somewhat disappointed. Our room was completely white - no colour whatsoever - we needed sunglasses when we first entered! Also its design does not suit anyone requiring privacy in... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment about the hotel. I regret to read that the design didn’t suit your taste. The French star architect Jean Nouvel wanted to forgo colorful elements and unnecessary ornaments which would distract from the spectacular view of Vienna. Therefore, our hotel is designed in a threefold color scheme namely black, white and grey. As... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
