We visited Vienna in December 2016 with my parents for the Christmas Markets. Upon arrival at the hotel there was a problem with our room - they weren't able to accommodate us the room we paid for. The lovely lady at reception sorted it there and then for us by offering us a free breakfast for our room and also...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 December 2016

I stay in many Sofitels around the world but this one is quite unique in terms of accomodation and its minimalist room designs. As you can read from other reviews of this hotel, opinions are divided. So if you are used to staying in W hotels or a Morgan's group hotel then you'll love it here. I happen to find...

Very good hotel with wonderful view. Clean white/grey rooms in a modern style with all needed: variety of plugs, fridge, drinks, bath, bathtub, etc. The 18th floor bar has an amazing view to Vienna. The breakfast is also fantastic. I can only recommend!

Friendly, efficient, interested staff. Superb room - actually, it was a junior suite - that featured a bath big enough for two, a really comfortable bed, dressing room, and lounge/dining area. It had a flat screen television in the bedroom, another in the lounge, and yet another in the bathroom. The room was also well soundproofed that we were unaware...

Travelled to Vienna with my family and stayed here during the European summer holidays. We were very happy with the location and service but unfortunately, the rooms are not as cosy and are a little worn. That said, we did have good sleeps as the beds were comfortable and clean. The view from the Loft restaurant is awesome.

You must try this Hotel and its rooftop restaurant. Make sure You ask for a room facing St.Stephens Cathedral. The bar next to the rooftop restaurant is great.The restaurant itself was a little disapointing and somewhat overpriced. Some rooms have windows that can be made darker with the push of a button wich is great especially on a sunny day

From arriving in the cab and having my door opened and suitcase removed from the boot and stood in the lobby, to being offered a refreshing drink and being shown to my room, opening the door to a massive grey room with stunning city views, a bathtub and shower with the same views and a very comfy bed! This hotel...

Not my best stay in Europe lately. Room was nicely appointed, but a little tired/worn. Bar has an amazing view, but as the only casual eating option in hotel the menu could be a little larger. Breakfast at this hotel was amazing. For €300 per night would hope for a little more.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood 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 centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, 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.

On the mezzanine level the hotel offers a business center and a library. For distinctive business or celebratory events you can choose from 8 sun lit meeting rooms for up to 150 people. On the 5th floor guests can enjoy a relaxing massage in our So SPA or work out in our So FIT.
