Palais Hansen Kempinski ViennaThis 1873 Renaissance-revival structure, built by Danish architect Theophil Edvard Hansen along Vienna’s famous Ringstraße, preserves the original architectural details while adding contemporary creature comforts, such as oversize beds and deep soaking tubs. While classic in style, the rooms are firmly rooted in the 21st century, with iPad consoles that can be used to control everything from in-room lighting to appointments in the Ottoman-inspired spa. The property’s prime location at the northernmost edge of the first district puts guests within walking distance of Vienna’s top attractions.
