Altstadt Vienna's recipe for success is creativity combined with the Viennese approach to life. Now as before, this historical building, in which guests and Viennese live door-by-door, is rich in character with a casual atmosphere. A carefully restored 19th-century patrician house, the Altstadt Vienna is a meeting place for lovers of art - a haven for travelers seeking a hotel with character. All 59 rooms and suites are individually designed, many by renowned designers such as Matteo Thun, Lena Hoschek, Gregor Eichinger, Lilli Hollein, and Andi Lackner. Personal service, combined with bold innovation has made the Altstadt Vienna what it is today: an epicenter of fine living. A passionate art collector, owner Otto Wiesenthal opened a hotel that is both a comfortable place to reside and a gallery all in one. He exhibits pieces that appeal to himself, his daughters, and his employees.
The hotel is located in the revitalized Spittelberg artist district. Here you'll find great restaurants that range from comfortable, no-frills Viennese “Beisl”, to modern international cuisine, raw super foods, and award-winning eateries.
“Looking for a showroom for my art collection, I transformed a patrician house in Vienna’s artists’ quarter into a boutique hotel. It has always been my wish to create the surroundings in such a way that I personally would want to spend my time there. My philosophy is based on three components: supporting young artists, providing outstanding service for my guests and creating a fulfilling atmosphere and a high quality of life for my employees.” Otto Wiesenthal
The hotel is surrounded by many creative Austrian boutiques and restaurants. Take a stroll and discover charming souvenirs, have lunch and chat with locals.
