I staid at the Sofitel as part of a corporate event. Overall an OK experience, but not a place I would return to. Positives: 1) Breakfast and bar: The breakfast room is located at the top floor, with an amazing view over view through floor-to-ceiling windows. Also, there is a ceiling painting (by artist Pipilotti Rist) that is illuminated at...

The most amazing views I've seen from a hotel room. The rooms were modern but comfortable - we didn't want to leave! Room came with an amazing breakfast. Short, easy walk to all the main sights. Would return to the hotel in a heartbeat!

I met up with my boyfriend in Vienna and we decided to stay in Sofitel. We are not a huge fan of antique or old hotels. So I was super happy with what we got. We stayed at a Superior Room and it was nicely furnished with minimalistic design. The reception was very nice when we were checking in. I...

Sofitel Stephansdom in located close to the famous St Stephen's Cathedral, where the city centre and major shopping belt is. A short walk to the subway station and 15-20min taxi ride to/from major train stations.

Already from the outside one can see that this hotel is special - colorful ceilings call for attention and are especially beautiful at night. One can spend hours just observing their fanciful scenes, including some videos, all created by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist. In contrast to all these colors, the elevators are rather dark; hallways are monochrome, with only...

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Within splendid view of its gothic namesake, St. Stephens Cathedral, the 5 star superior Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom is an emphatically 21st century structure. Echoing the hotel's sleek exteriors, the 182 monochromatic guest rooms, including 26 suites, are decorated in either immaculate white, cool grey or velvety black. On the mezzanine level the hotel offers a business center and a library. For distinctive business or celebratory events you can choose from 8 sun lit meeting rooms for up to 150 people. On the 5th floor guests can enjoy a relaxing massage in our So SPA or work out in our So FIT. Join the local crowd at Das LOFT, the Sofitel Vienna´s superbly stylish rooftop dining & bar retreat; a fete extraordinaire with fantastical interiors by Jean Nouvel and culinary arts from the imagination of Fabian Gunzel, our Chef de Cuisine. ... more   less
