Hotel Rathaus Wein & Design
Ranked #6 of 358 Hotels in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We chose this place from the other trip advisor views and they were very accurate. This hotel has very stylish modern decor. Our room was spacious and quiet a big shower and great towels/linens. The hotel was very convenient to U bahn, street cars and buses. It was not as touristy as other places we might have chosen in central old Vienna. The staff was very friendly and helpful and I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Vienna.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the courtyard for a quiet one

wein & design is a beautifully designed hotel, very private atmosphere, very nice and helpful staff as one would expect in such a place.

breakfast is one of the best i ever had with such a variety which is hardly seen anywhere. also non-guests can brunch here on sundays, which is highly recommendable! a great place to stay for a weekend trip to vienna, the rooms are beautiful and really, there is nothing to criticise here!!

In the case of Hotel Rathaus Wein & Design, nomen est omen. The sophisticatedly designed hotel offers rooms that are comfortable and quiet and (this is unique) are each “sponsored” by a notable Austrian wine maker whose bottles grace the bar of the room. A propos wine: the bar next to the lobby offers numerous fine wines at excellent prices by the glass, together with small plates of food and wine tastings can be arranged. The hotel manager led an excellent tasting for my group.

The hotel is situated in a quiet neighborhood close to the center of Vienna and only a stone’s throw away from the fantastic museum “quarter.”

The best thing about the hotel, however, is its dedicated and efficient staff. Friendly and competent, the staff is eager to help guests with whatever information they need or requests they may have. When making my (rather complicated) reservations, I always heard back from the hotel right away in a most accommodating and nice way.

This is an very modern and well appointed hotel. Fixtures and furnishings are very modern and up to date. Location is on a quiet block, but the Mexican cantina/restaurant across the street sometimes got a bit loud. The location is excellent and the walk to all things Hapsburg is easy. The museum quarter is just minutes away on foot and on several tram lines. If I return to Vienna, on business or pleasure, I would stay here again.

Small & personal. Room request fulfilled. Lovely well maintained 5 stores townhouse on edge of old town centre, just behind parliament house, close to museum quarter & shopping district. Room beautiful, very modern, great amenities. Only let down, breakfast room not very inviting & expensive compared to local cafes. Easily fixed by eating out. Wine theme well done & big range of Austrian wines available. Staff organized transport & theatre tickets. Easy access by car with free parking on street over weekend & parking station paid via hotel only 50 meters.

Room Tip: High floor front of hotel, 404 big bay window & view to spires of city

After staying in another design hotel in Germany on this same trip, the comparison made Rathaus look even better than it already looked. Our room on the 4th floor was large, with high ceilings. There was plenty of space in the bathroom to store all our toiletries. One thing I can't stand is design hotels with no storage space. The shower was great, with great pressure and side jets as well as a rain showerhead and a regular one too. Separate toilet compartment, another thoughtful design element. Plenty of lighting in the room at different levels (my big pet peeve is hotels without enough lights to enable me to read and work - not the case here.) Comfortable bed, a chair in addition to the desk chair, and free fast wi-fi completed the package. The neighborhood is a little distant from the main tourist sites like Stephansplatz, but it is in such a nice and quiet neighborhood, and the subway stop at Volkstheater a 5 minute walk away. This is a "real people" neighborhood, and is much more pleasant than being in the middle of the tourist throng. The wine bar was terrific and we were able to try a ton of different Austrian wines. Lastly, the staff are extremely helpful, friendly and outgoing. I expected Vienna to be a formal, reserved city, but everyone we encountered, including at the hotel, could not have been more helpful. Definitely will stay at Rathaus again when we return to Vienna.

Stayed here for 2 nights. We picked this place in part because of the reviews on TA. The experience was good but not as good as we had expected given the rave.

On the positive side, service was excellent, especially at the front desk and in the cafe/bar. Breakfast was nice with a wide range of choice, though also not cheap at 17 euros a person.

The room was a let-down. To us, it was a plain vanilla business hotel room, and the bare laminate flooring did not add to its charms. At night, light from the hallway shone through the gap between door and floor (laminate reflects well, it seems), a tower took care of that. While nothing essential was missing (well, a bathtub would be nice), nothing extraordinary was there, not even (as one might expect given the hotel theme and the prices) a complimentary bottle of wine.

WiFi was free and worked well.

Location is so-so, it takes a 5-7 minutes from the closest subway station. If I were to return to Vienna for sightseeing, I would pick a much more central location, perhaps somewhere close to Stephansplatz.
