Sofitel Stephansdom

A design masterpiece


Praterstraße 1 - website

Designed by the star-architect Jean Nouvel, this has won the European Hotel Design Award in 2011 under the category “new built hotel”.

To some, the aesthetic might appear a bit cold but there are some features worth the price: the top floor restaurant has a dazzling ceiling made by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist and offers stunning views on the city. There’s also a magnificent wall garden with 20,000 species of plants by French architect-landscaper Patrick Blanc and all the modern equipment for business meetings.

It’s a fantastic hotel combining art & design as a global experience with all in-house services you can dream of.
