This 5-star property overlooks the Danube Canal. Vienna's historic district, the Graben -- which is known for its shops -- is a 13-minute walk away. Wiener Staatsoper (the opera) and the MuseumsQuartier are a short stroll from here. The hotel's restaurant, Das Loft, has 360-degree views over Vienna, "a city where postmodernist and contemporary architectural designs contrast and fuse with the monumental and historic", according to Lonely Planet. This restaurant is described as "the hotel's best feature" by The New York Times, while Fodor's says that the views from there are "especially breathtaking". Guests are advised to make reservations well in advance.

Das Loft Bar & Lounge, a modernist-style bar with a striking ceiling designed by Swiss artist Rist, also has spectacular city views, as well as an impressive list of French and Austrian wines, cocktails, spirits and liqueurs. There’s an on-site coffee shop, too.

The Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom has a gym and a stylish spa with a Jacuzzi and a Hamman, plus treatments for a surcharge.

This 182-room hotel was designed by renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, who gave the contemporary rooms and suites a sleek, monochrome look. All feature free Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines and complimentary soft drinks in the mini bars.

From the Press:

  • "Minimalist luxury can be a contradiction, but at the Sofitel it's pulled off with supreme elegance" -- Fodor's
