Hotel's Favorite
Arrived on 5th March. We had booked a white suite. Room was on 14th floor woth great views over the north of the city overlooking the fairground. The concierge got us 2 amazing tickets for Turandot at the Stadsoper despite them being sold out online for the one show on the evening of our arrival. Wasn’t cheap, but worth it. The Das Loft is amazing for breakfast and the house music on Friday night was good. The staff were all lovely and our room spotless. (It was white and any marks will show) Bed very comfortable. Vienna is a beautiful city. This hotel is well worth staying at. We wanted to eat out. The staff told us to try Figl Muller. Great advice. Would absolutely go back. I have posted views from room and Das Loft.

Arriving in an empty hotel is very unusual, but it is the difficult reality now. I was greeted warmly and friendly, the room was prepared and check in was very smooth. I had a beautiful room overlooking the city with a welcome greeting from management. For my business meeting everything was perfectly arranged and catered for. Unfortunately I could not enjoy the highlight of the hotel - the loft restaurant on the top floor which boasts stunning views over the city, and normally exquisite food and great drinks and music. Breakfast through roomservice was equally good, as expected and check out and departure friendly and efficient as always. I hope business will be better for this and all other hotels and restaurants. Until then stay safe, SO/ Vienna. Thank you

Very designed and stylish hotel, big and well equipped room which provides amazing views over Vienna, excellent dinner/drinks and lovely staff at Das Loft!!! Area for improvement: the staff of front desk are really cold Disappointing: spa shutdown due to Covid-19, whereas other hotels kept theirs open at the same time

Dear 376lucasl, Thank you for your positive feedback! We are delighted that you fully enjoyed the room's facilities and our services, especially at our Das LOFT bar. Your nice words are very much appreciated and have been shared with the team. However, I regret the welcome you experienced at our reception. Our Just Say SO Manager has been informed and will review your comment with his team. Please accept our apologies. Indeed, we decided to keep our spa closed after the reopening in June due to a low demand in summer. (Massages and treatments were available with a reservation until 24h in advance.) We will now reopen our wellness area this Saturday September 12th. Our spa team is looking forward to prepare our guests a relaxing moment again. We hope to welcome you back soon at SO/ Vienna. Kind regards, Christian Klaus General Manager SO/ Vienna

Fabulous hotel with possibly the best views of Vienna. The breakfast was fantastic, offering both “à la carte” and buffet. The bar is also very cool at night. Rooms are of a high standard, very clean and design. The bed was incredibly comfortable. However, the lobby is not as clean and comfortable as you might expect it to be in a 5-star hotel. This is of course an amazing place to stay and I would indeed recommend it, but I have seen better 5-star hotels for the same price.
