Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna

Historic Hotel


Short description

Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna


Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | History & culture

Originally built for the World Exhibition in 1873, this heritage-listed dame is something of an institution. It has the luxurious amenities to match, with its elegant rooms paired with spa treatments, a Michelin-starred restaurant and even a cigar lounge.

It’s all sited at Schottenring, right on the famous Ring Boulevard – the grand road that circumnavigates Vienna’s historic old town. Although it’s where the city’s medieval ramparts once stood, today it’s plied by trams and given over to imperial architecture. As such, you’ll have all of the Austrian capital’s delights nearby, from its famous concert halls to its resurgent café scene.

Back at the Kempinski, the rooms are decidedly more contemporary, despite views of the historic courtyard or Ring Boulevard. Think oversized headboards, bold splashes of colour and Nespresso machines as standard – perfect for that Viennese coffee to start the day. There’s even an iPad-controlled entertainment system. Upgrades mix in everything from balconies and pillow menus to soaking tubs and suite layouts. For something extra special, look to the giant Penthouse offerings, complete with terraces and private, spiral-staircase access.

There’s also a full complement of luxurious facilities, with the spa an obvious highlight. Here, alongside the usual saunas, modern gym and pool, there’s a wide range of treatments on offer. Highlights include superb massages, scrubs and manicures. Then, in terms of dining, you’ll have a choice of a relaxed bite at the Lobby Lounge & Bar, the classic Austrian meals of Die Kueche Wien or the Mediterranean fine dining of Edvard. A Michelin-starred jewel, it’s one of Austria’s best restaurants. Perhaps cap it all off with a cocktail or glass of champagne at the beautiful 27° East or a puff and a whiskey in the gorgeous Cigar Lounge.
