The Sofitel Vienna, rises above the Danube in a graceful challenge to the empirical buildings over which it towers, without dominating. It is beautifully mis-aligned and the architect
has created an elegant tromp d'oeil of a leaning tower. Move over Pisa!
The car service from the train station had been arranged and was waiting at the station to bring us back to the hotel. The concierge was at the door waiting for us and the welcome was warm, personal and charming. Our plans and reservations for the coming days were printed and at the ready. Very efficient. Black, White or Grey Room. what to chose when travelling with kids & gorgeous husband.? Connecting! The rooms are sharp and very very sexy and the stylish and space-saving aspects again had me wishing I could hire the interior designer!
The restaurant at the top of the hotel is worth dining if only for the view of both the city and the amazing ceiling, which can be seen from across the river when approaching the hotel! The chef is inventive, the staff are charming and the view of Vienna, outstanding. If you were not in the mood for a full meal, the bar, pitched at a slightly higher point in the centre of the restaurant has equally good views. We had made a reservation for dinner for 4, and despite being an hour late and not particularly hungry,we were treated as treasured guests. The buffet breakfast was chock full of a variety of choice for dieters and non-carb eaters, but the bread and pastries were not to be missed. The children loved the pancakes and ordered another round!
Would highly recommend as it is close to everything, whilst still being just slightly separate, which I do enjoy.
