On our Summer vacation we made the Prague - Budapest - Vienna route and ending at this hotel was definitely the cherry on the cake! The four of us enjoyed the wonderful Suite Prestige for three nights and we just did not want to leave the room. The views were so unique!! Watching Viena from anywhere in our room was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 February 2017

The hotel is in a great location just 10 minutes walk from Stephansdome and the historic city centre. The staff was welcoming and kind, they gave us the room at 11 despite that the check-in is at 15 o'clock. The room was quite nice, it was full white and modern. My only objection was that some of the furniture was...

We had the great opportunity to spend 2 unforgettable nights at Sofitel Stephansdom. The location of the facility is very centralized, you can reach each part of the city within minutes by using the public transportation. Metro, tram lines are just steps away from the entrance. The view of our room (on 13th floor) was wonderful, even the room itself....

The Sofitel Restaurant is located atop the hotel building in one of the coolest parts of Vienna.The building itself is worth seeing at night. The views from the restaurant provide one of the most memorable experiences one can get. Don't miss this if you are in Vienna. But please be aware there is a dress code (no sneakers) and if...

Good location, just outside the centre of Vienna, with great views from the restaurant on the top floor. Room a bit too minimalist for my taste with concrete floors, sliding panels for curtains and a large sliding wall for the bathroom door.

Dear guest, thank you for sharing your comments on tripadvisor. I can understand that the minimalist design of our hotel is not to everyone's taste. The French star architect Jean Nouvel wanted to forgo unnecessary ornaments which would distract from the spectacular view of Vienna. From your review I understand that you stayed in one of our grey Luxury rooms....

Superb location. Been there by train, car and fly - extremely easy to reach. The rooms, the architecture, the restaurant, the staff - can't be better. Everyone should experience the view over Vienna from the restaurant on the 18th floor!

Perfect location right on the canal, steps from city center, and across the street from the subway. We really enjoyed our room. At first the room can appear cold and sterile because of its modern decor and the stark white, but its well decorated and functionally designed and it didn't take long for us to feel comfortable. The beds were...

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.
