Hotel Description

It’s not quite on the level of the Stephansdom cathedral itself, but architecture buffs will want to set aside some time for the Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom as well. Pritzker winner Jean Nouvel re-thought the typical hotel shape, changing the ho-hum rectangle into a celebration of geometry. Glass abounds, and the top-floor restaurant ceiling is clearly visible from street level, its riotous colors echoing the many-hued mosaics of the Stephansdom’s roof.

The room interiors stand up to a bit of ogling as well. Like its brethren Sofitel properties around the world, this one is all minimalist polish, with more than a touch of distinctly Viennese elegance. Monochromatic grays play off the surrounding old city, full of steep arches and textured stone, the hotel’s clean look framing the city’s Gothic flourishes. Straight-backed chairs mimic the right-angled buildings, while the interior’s blacks and whites resemble an ever-present cup of coffee, the elixir at the heart of Viennese culture. You won’t likely forget you’re in Central Europe.

Fine-dining restaurant, bar, meeting rooms, 24-hour room service, a just-opened spa — they’re all here, as you would expect. So are views of the Riesenrad, a giant Ferris wheel, and the Vienna Woods, where nature gently asserts its dominion over the city’s urbane sophistication.
