Lavish, fresh and dripping with bling, the Sans Souci Vienna is a glossy new addition to Vienna’s hotel scene, after opening at the end of 2012. The original building dates back to 1872 but has been reimagined by Philippe Starck’s design house. Set on Museumstrasse in the boho Spittelberg district, its central location is just as attractive as the funky interiors -- the MuseumsQuartier is five minutes away on foot and the shops on Mariahilfer Strasse are just around the corner.
Downstairs, the 24-hour gym is well equipped and the spa boasts a full wellness suite, including two saunas, a steam bath and a separate ladies' spa. Rather unusually for a Viennese city hotel, there's also a 20-metre pool, lit by crystal chandeliers.
The restaurant menu focuses on local recipes, using organic and seasonal ingredients. Tomato foam soup, suckling pig and veal fillet with chanterelles are just a few of the specialties, and the set menu comes with champagne or wine pairings. If you just fancy a drink after a long day of sightseeing, enjoy glass of vintage bubbles at Le Bar, a Versailles-like boudoir with wood panelling, shiny chandeliers and mirrored walls.
Rooms are calming, with high ceilings and stately proportions. Pricier rooms boast modern four-poster beds and a few have balconies facing the quiet courtyard. Upgrade to a suite for a full bath tub and original art by the likes of Lichtenstein, from the owner’s personal collection. Don’t miss breakfast -- the bountiful buffet includes fresh fruit, organic eggs, mountain cheese and cold cuts as well as champagne.
