If you’re planning a trip to Austria then I’m sure you’re here because you’re wondering where to stay in Vienna. I’ve just discovered my new favorite neighborhood, MuseumsQuartier, and highly recommend the 25Hours Hotel Vienna at MuseumsQuartier. Here’s why:
The entryway’s wall is covered in dozens of vintage cameras that give guests the perfect opportunity to have a quick photoshoot before checking in. Surprisingly, the lobby was not some cold area for guests to simply wait around for check in, but there were ample spaces to hang around and relax or get work done. Overall I was impressed by how well decorated the first floor was before even making it to my room.
In short, I love visually appealing spaces and the 25Hours Hotel Vienna doesn’t disappoint. This vintage circus themed hotel is full of bold, bright colors that brighten up the space and give you something that you simply won’t get from an airbnb or hostel. Even the TV stand was made from vintage suitcases which tied into the theme of the room.
Being a Digital Nomad, it’s extremely important to have a dedicated work space while traveling. This actually is something that every place I’ve stayed for the last few months has been lacking. So imagine my joy when I walk into my room and see a desk and outdoor seating on my terrace. That’s right, an actual terrace! Little ol’ me didn’t even need all of that space but I was beyond grateful for it. Having my morning tea and getting work done at the vintage patio set after a stretch and yoga section with the busy streets of Vienna just below me is the perfect start to any day.
To my surprise, there were several other areas in the hotel dedicated to settling down on a comfy couch with your laptop or favorite book. I can recommend relaxing in the lobby (there are also computer/printing stations), the rooftop bar, or even the Mermaid’s Cave where you can lounge in the sunlight after working out at the gym or spending some time in the sauna or steam room.
The 25Hours Hotel Vienna had more amenities that I had time to utilize. For that reason alone I plan to stay in this hotel when I return to Vienna. Here are a few of the perks you’ll have the pleasure of enjoying during your stay:
- Bike rental
- Test drive a MINI car
- Gym (complete with sauna and steam room)
- Restaurant and food truck
- Rooftop Bar & Lounge
- Computer and printing stations
During my first day at the 25Hours Hotel Vienna I was craving a burger and beer something fierce. Imagine my surprise when I go to find out that Burger De Ville, the restaurant I saw on my map, was right on the premises. I demolished a jalapeño burger and some of the best fries I’ve ever had in minutes before washing it down with a refreshing beer.
When it came to breakfast, you could find me at 1500 Foodmakers, the restaurant off of the lobby, every morning. This was one of the best buffet breakfast options I’ve encountered during my travels and that’s saying a lot. You can find freshly cooked bacon, sausages, a variety of bread, and much more. Quench your thirst with several beverage options including freshly made coffee drinks and rosé champagne. And you know I had the rosé daily before setting off to explore the city.
Stay Fit While Traveling
The Mermaid’s Cave is something you can’t pass up when staying at this hotel and if you don’t do your research beforehand, you may never wander down to the lower level of this hotel to experience it. In this space you’ll find a gym that is sure to suit your needs in addition to both a sauna and steam room to finish off that workout. The showers make you question even bothering returning to your room to bath and the comfy lounge chairs perfectly placed under skylights will have you dozing off post workout.
The Happiest of Hours
Is it a hotel if it doesn’t have a designated bar/lounge area complete with views of the neighborhood? Me thinks not. Thankfully the 25Hours Hotel Vienna didn’t disappoint. Open everyday at 3pm until 1am, a cozy space dedicated to those that do and do not enjoy adult beverages is awaiting you. Ask the bartender to craft up your favorite cocktail or, as I always recommend, try something new. Even if you don’t drink this space is worth visiting if even to take in the view and ambience.
