Legendary Stories Design signature Our Unique Story Legendary Stories

Due to the current situation and the resulting official orders, our hotel is currently closed for an indefinite period. My team and I are already looking forward to welcoming you back soon.

Stay in an "archisculpture" designed by one of France's top architects, Jean Nouvel. The façade of this 21st-century masterpiece with its monochrome color palette and diamond roof pattern reflects the influence of the Gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral.

Inside, colorful works of art illuminate the huge surfaces. Experience a childish fascination with Pipilotti Rist's dazzling video murals and admire Patrick Blanc's colossal vertical plant wall, which acts as a living tableau in continuous flux.

The entirely glass-clad Das LOFT restaurant seems to hover in the sky and offers a unique view of the historic and cosmopolitan Vienna. Its masterly crafted kaleidoscopic light ceiling invites guests and passers-by alike to dream.
