Our favourite rooms
Each room has beautifully clean design, an inviting cloud of a bed and an open-plan bathroom. If you’re craving a luxurious soak, spring for a Suite: the claw-foot baths are front and centre and the seventh-floor Vienna views are pretty spectacular, too.
The heated rooftop infinity pool has impressive views over the Ringstrasse; it’s open in summer from 7.30am to midnight. The pool is flanked by wicker chairs and tables for after-swim drinks, and towels and slippers are provided.
Bring gallery-worthy LBDs for a night in Grand Ferdinand’s bars.
Smoking is only permitted on the balconies of suites and on the roof terrace of the Grande Etage.
Pets are welcome for €30 a day, but you’ll need to provide the chow. See more pet-friendly hotels in Vienna.
