What we like about this property

We love how unique this hotel is. Made up of seven geographically separate suites located around the Meidlinger Markt, it is unlike a hotel in the usual sense of the word. Each suite is a converted commercial space that retains some of its original character but has been given a contemporary spin. The hotel is also integrated into the community – its reception is a local cafe, and its living room the market that surrounds it. A great small hotel Vienna for adventurous design-lovers.

Description

This small hotel in Vienna defies the expectations of traditional hospitality. Instead of being located under one roof, its individual suites are located in former business premises and storage areas dotted around the Meidlinger Markt.

The idea was conceived by designers Urbanauts, who invite their guests to get away from the standardized and scripted, and, by doing so, get to know the neighbors and the city at the same time.

They have three branches of the hotel in different parts of the city. Each cluster has a center – a neighborhood cafe, which serves as its reception and social hub. And, instead of having traditional hotel amenities, the hotel is supported by local businesses like restaurants and spas. 

This particular cluster has six suites, with such characterful names as the Roses Seller, the Librarian, the Confectioner and the Vinyl Dealer. Each retains its historical structure but has been updated with the hotel’s signature contemporary style – cool greys, greens and whites, with feature walls and lavish drapes. As they vary in theme, they also vary in size. Most have kitchenettes but some have full kitchens, some have separate bedrooms, and one even has its own little spa.

The other branches (Grätzlhotel Karmelitermarkt and Grätzlhotel Belvedere) are also listed here on BoutiqueHomes.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Each room has comfortable, extra-long box-spring beds with luxury mattresses, a bathroom with rain shower or tub, and kitchenette (with Nespresso machine and water boiler with tea selection, and minibar). Other amenities include wifi and flat-screen cable TV. Every suite is equipped with a safe, big enough for a 15″ laptop.  All of the suites are located on the ground floor and maintain a pleasant temperature during the summer.

AROUND

This branch of the hotel is located in Vienna’s 12th district, Meidling, a characterful neighborhood close to the Schönbrunn palace. It’s full of restaurants, hip cafés, pubs and specialty stores, and it has a farmers’ market offering local beers and other international delicacies. The legendary music venue U4 is within walking distance of the hotel, as is the old Viennese Schnaps museum.

Other attractions include: Princess Sissi’s palace garden (2 stations by underground, or a 15-minute walk), St. Stephen’s church (4km), and the Theresienbad, the oldest public baths in the city with indoor/outdoor pools, saunas and steambaths (5 minutes on foot). The owners also recommend walks through the many local parks, including the garden at the vast Baroque Schönbrunn palace, and the child-friendly Christina-Busta park.

LOCATION 

Vienna, Austria. Nearest airport: Vienna International (24km). The airport bus is recommended (to Meidling station). Alternatively, take the CAT (city airport train) to Wien-Mitte and then the subway U6 to Niederhofstraße. An airport transfer can also be arranged. The hotel is 14 minutes from the Wiener Hauptbahnhof, the city’s main train station. 

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Different times of the year offer different attractions. January and February are quiet, making it a good time to get into cultural venues. May and June are lively, locals leave the city during the summer months, and fall is great for music and festivals. From mid-November, the city is decorated festively for the Christmas season, and New Year offers plenty of parties, dancing and ice skating.
