Set near Königsplatz, the Old Town and upscale shopping areas, this contemporary hotel sits in a serene garden setting in the Lenbachgärten quarter. Most of the 160 rooms and suites offer views of the Old Botanical Garden and historic monuments, such as the Frauenkirche. Public areas feature works by local artists Hubertus von Hohenlohe and Axel Crieger, interiors designed by Olga Polizzi and Faber-Castell sculptures. The bistro-style restaurant, Sophia’s, serves regionally inspired cuisine in an elegant setting with floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace for outdoor dining, and an atmospheric cocktail bar features live music most nights. The Library provides a delightful atmosphere for afternoon tea. The spa encompasses a beautiful 50-foot mosaic-tile swimming pool, plus a steam room, a Finnish sauna and a well-equipped fitness gym.
