Hotel Altstadt Vienna
This restored Patrician house now operates as a 45-room retreat, designed by Italy
-born architect Matteo Thun. The property doubles as a museum: Works by famous artists such as Andy Warhol and Christian Attersee hang throughout the individually styled guest rooms and elegant, chandeliered communal spaces. The Altstadt embraces the idea of Gemütlichkeit
(genuine friendliness) through subtle amenities, including complimentary afternoon tea paired with housemade cakes in the Red Parlor.
