“Art combined with Viennese joie de vivre”. This is the motto of the boutique hotel Altstadt Vienna. Only five minutes’ walk from the MuseumsQuartier, the residential house built in 1902 is situated in the sophisticated, creative 7th district of Spittelberg. The hotel houses 45 rooms and suites, all striking for their variety and uniqueness. Whether designed by world-famous architects like Matteo Thun or contemporary fashion stars like Lena Hoschek – no room is like the next. But they have one thing in common: the famous Viennese Gemütlichkeit (that untranslatable welcoming friendliness and comfort). The Altstadt Vienna also houses a notable collection of contemporary art owned by the proprietor Otto Ernst Wiesenthal – on show are works by Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Prachensky, Leibowitz, Attersee, Helnwein, and many more.
