It would be difficult to find a hotel located any closer to the heart of Vienna and its major attractions than Do & Co. In fact, the reflection of the historic St. Stephen’s Cathedral engulfs the glass and steel of the landmark Haas Haus building, renovated by renowned architect Hans Hollein. Turkish-born Attila Dogudan opened Do & Co as a catering business in 1981 and has since followed with restaurants across Vienna and as far away as New York, making his hotel a gastronomic destination as well. A nod to his Turkish heritage can be seen in the colorful bedspreads that cover the incredibly comfortable beds.
Rooms have a contemporary design and include travertine stone and teakwood floors. The sleek, all-glass showers in the city view rooms may at first seem to lack privacy, though there are shades that fold out. But, who needs privacy? You’re in Vienna!
