Elegant design hotel Vienna near the Museum Quarter Vienna
This is one of our Vienna travel tips for staying overnight. Do you know what it is like when everything just fits? How comfortable do you feel then? If a hotel manages to convey this feeling, then I can thoroughly recommend it. And that is exactly the case in the Design Hotel Wien Sans Souci on Burggasse in Vienna. We spend two nights in this elegant design hotel Vienna on the chic Spittelberg to look at the Advent markets in Vienna.
The Hotel Sans Souci not only offers the best starting point for this. The Advent market at Spittelberg is around the corner, just like the Advent markets at Rathausplatz, Karlsplatz, Naschmarkt, Mahlerstraße or St. Stephen's Cathedral are easy to reach by subway. The center, the historic first district, the old town of Vienna and Shopping opportunities can be easily reached from here on foot or by underground, which leaves directly in front of the hotel. And museum fans are well accommodated in this hotel, as Vienna's Museum Quarter is just around the corner. Hofburg, the Natural History and Art History Museum, the World Museum Vienna, the New Castle, the Austrian National Library and the Imperial Treasury Vienna are all within easy walking distance of the Hotel Sans Souci.

The Hotel Sans Souci
An elegant design hotel in Vienna's Museum Quarter was opened in December 2012: the Hotel Sans Souci. It is located in a historic city palace that has been very carefully modernized. Although the hotel is equipped with all modern conveniences, we still feel the touch of Viennese history that is beautifully preserved in this building. The modern design of the rooms and the public spaces revitalizes the historic ambience of the house. Antique furniture exudes an opulence that is not overwhelming. Original artworks by Roy Lichtenstein, Allen Jones and others add to the elegant appeal of the hotel's public spaces.
Lifestyle Hotel in the Museumsquartier Vienna
We have seen many elegant hotels on our travels. But so far there hasn't been one where the elevator took my breath away. From the hotel's magnificent lobby, which impresses us with its heavy gold-framed mirrors, beautiful antique chairs and chandeliers, we follow the concierge down an elegant corridor that ends at the elevator that takes guests to the upper floors. When the door to the elevator opens, it really takes my breath away: the entire interior is lined with mirrors, decorated with wonderfully carved inlays, giving the small space a grandeur created by the reflections. The Hotel Sans Souci is definitely a design hotel in Vienna that impresses us more and more with every new twist.
Room in the Hotel Sans Souci
Our Superior Room is no exception. Equipped with high-quality materials and kept in light colors, it makes a very friendly impression. The gold-colored wall tattoo of trees, birds and butterflies gives the room an elegant lightness in which we simply have to feel good. Another contributing factor is the comfortable bedding and the mattress, which has just the right firmness to sleep on clouds. In the bathroom, a rainwater shower ensures the feel-good factor. On top of that, the environment is not neglected with the energy-saving lamps that are used everywhere, the motion detector that switches the light on in the separate toilet as if by magic - and off again - and the energy-saving system that switches off all electrical devices as soon as the room key is pressed this disabled.
Breakfast at the Design Hotel Wien Sans Souci
Our breakfast is included in the room rate. It is served buffet style in the hotel's gourmet restaurant La Veranda. The food selection is extensive and healthy. As is well known, the eye also eats, which is why I particularly like the fact that the yoghurt is specially dressed and served in individual glasses, in which three blueberries give the whole thing an appetizing appearance. The various types of bread are accompanied by spreads made from regional products. Apricot jam from the Wachau are available as well as fruit jams from the surrounding gardens. The Slow Food philosophy therefore fits the maxim of sustainability that the Hotel Sans Souci has set itself.
Friendly service in this design hotel Vienna
No hotel achieves this quality without the right staff and service. Here, too, the Hotel Sans Souci fully convinced us. Whether it's the friendly welcome to our arrival at the hotel reception, the helpful valet service when parking our car, the detailed briefing on how our room works by the concierge or the courteous service at breakfast - every member of the staff, with who we deal with during our stay is always available and eager to answer our questions and fulfill our requests. We lack for nothing in this hotel. Therefore we would love to come back.
