Breathtaking view!

This place has a panoramic breathtaking view of the city. Nice cocktails and atmosphere but not very busy during the weekdays. Prices where a bit high but the bartenders were very friendly. Is a good option for a couple of drinks near the city centre.

Located over the Blue Danube... the view is marvelous. The decoration is modern. The ceiling has an inclination over the windows and makes a great effect after sunset, as prolonging the restaurant ceiling over the city. The wines are great, but the food is above expectations after such a nice scenery. Very good service! Arrive before sunset, so that you... More

Was a guest in the hotel over the Easter Holiday. We decided to eat in Le Loft on our last evening. The views from the restaurant and bar are just amazing and we particularly liked that tables were reserved for hotel guests in the bar as it did get busy - it is a popular bar. We had reserved a...

Ke Loft is a truly impressive restaurant in every way!! The ambience is absolutely fantastic and the 360• panoramic view of Vienna is just breath taking! Our waitress (blond tall lady) was extremely friendly and attentive! Thank you for your lovely service. The food was just delicious. I had a tuna tartar as starter, it was tender and so tasty....

Cool, funky dining room with 360 view, complete floor to ceiling windows that look over Vienna. Food is flavorful but small portions ("food as art" concept) and wine list is extensive but a little pricey. Cocktails and the bar are great! You need to visit here when in Vienna!

We had a lunch in the restaurant on St. Valentines day. Checking all the reviews, I`ve made a booking in advance (about a month), and for the evening they were already fully booked! So I made a reservation for lunch and sent an email to the hotel asking if it is possible to get a table for the same evening... 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.
