Setting

Creative quarter

Max Brown 7th District in Vienna focuses on four simple pleasures: bread (fresh every morning from the local bakery), coffee (naturally, in the coffee house capital of Europe), bed (oh, just you wait...) and location (this is where the cool kids hang out). But there’s a whole lot more, too. Israeli food comes courtesy of Eyal Shani’s open kitchen and cocktails flow at the terrace bar, which overlooks a street-art mural. In your home-from-home room, you’ll find mid-century design mixed with potted plant life and a retro record player.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Pull up a stool at the open-kitchen counter, and watch the chefs at work.

Dress Code

It’s a relaxed vibe, and even the tables and chairs are mismatched, so don’t sweat on a coordinated outfit. Jeans and trainers will do.

Hotel restaurant

The industrial aesthetic continues at Seven North, the brainchild of TV-famous Israeli chef Eyal Shani. Expect a menu stacked with Southern Mediterranean goodness, from flatbreads and falafel to roasted veg reinvented by the ‘King of Cauliflower’ himself.

Hotel bar

Seven North’s quirky cocktail menu features classics with a twist – try a honey-basil margarita, for example, or a white negroni. Sit up at the centrepiece bar, or take your tipple out to the sun-struck terrace.

Last orders

The breakfast buffet is open from 7am until 10.30am, lunch is from noon until 6pm, and dinner is from 6pm until 10pm. The bar is open till 1am.

Room service

There isn’t any, but you won’t need it – there’s plenty to eat at Seven North or nearby.

Austria

The hotel is in 7th District of Vienna, a lively creative quarter around half an hour on foot from the city centre.

Planes

Vienna is in the heart of Europe, and its international airport is well connected to major cities across the continent; direct flights with British Airways and Easyjet take around two hours from London. Wien International Airport is 23km from the hotel, which takes around half an hour in a taxi.

Trains

That central location means it’s easy to cover ground by train, too – Salzburg and Budapest are three hours away, and you can be in Prague or Munich in around five hours. For travel within the city, hop on the tram – the nearest stop is four minutes from the hotel on foot.

Automobiles

Vienna’s public transport is enviably good, so you don’t need a car in the city. If you’re tying your visit into an extended European road trip, you can hire at the airport or at a car rental kiosk in the city centre. Parking at the hotel costs €24 a night, if you can grab a spot.

Worth getting out of bed for

http://schelato.atWith beds like these, nobody could blame you for having a duvet day…but then you’d never take part in Vienna’s coffee culture, let alone sample breakfast, lunch and dinner in the buzzed-about Mediterranean restaurant, Seven North. After a day of city sightseeing, make your reward a cocktail on the terrace, with views of Vienna’s art quarter and the abstract mural across the street.

Beyond the hotel itself, for a flavour of local life head to Naschmarkt (between Karlsplatz and Kettenbrückengasse), where 120 market stalls showcase international street food; on Saturdays, don’t miss the flea market. If you’re looking for a souvenir and a Mozart-shaped rubber duck just won’t cut it, try MAK Design Shop (Stubenring 5) instead, where you’ll find art prints and jewelry along with the kitchen gadgetry. Sous-Bois (Neustiftgasse 33) is a trendy stationery specialist for all things pretty and papery. No trip to Vienna is complete until a schnitzel’s in your stomach. For the very best in veal, head to the legendary Figlmüller (Wollzeile 5) – then follow it up with an impossibly chocolatey Sachertorte from Café Sacher

Local restaurants

Start the day with a breakfast of champions at Ulrich (Sankt-Ulrichs-Platz 1a); the ‘Big Easy’ herb omelette and avocado open sandwich will keep you going and going, while the tabula rasa is a ham-laden platter. If you’re more in the mood for tacos and shakshuka, Erich (Neustiftgasse 27) is an alternative under the same ownership, while Momo (Kirchengasse 35) is the spot for proper Italian pizza. In summer, snag a spot at Palmenhaus (Burggarten 1), a botanical glasshouse that was once the Emperor’s garden hangout; nowadays, it’s the people’s favourite for all-day dining on the terrace. For haute cuisine, you’ll want Steirereck (Am Heumarkt 2A), which mixes ultra-modern design with finely crafted classics – the milk-fed piglet shoulder comes with celery, rhubarb and a nettle dashi. Schelato (Lerchenfelder Str. 34) does organic gelato in bonkers flavours like carrot cake and poppy-seed jam – for more traditional options try La Romana (Stiftgasse 15–17) instead (or as well… go on, you’re on holiday).

Local bars

The Brickmaker’s Pub & Kitchen (Zieglergasse 42) does heaving plates of salty, succulent American barbecue, so it’s just as well that it has Vienna’s broadest selection of beer to wash it down. Bonus: it’s just a couple of minutes from the hotel.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Austria and unpacked their strudel and Sachertorte, a full account of their Vienna city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Max Brown 7th District in Vienna…

When people think of Vienna, the tendency is to look back to its rich and glorious past. You might imagine horse-drawn carriages clattering along cobblestone streets, or footmen in powdered wigs and lacquered shoes, scurrying in and out of baroque palaces. And of course, whenever and wherever you go, the air will be filled with one or other of Mozart’s most famous riffs. Well, surprise surprise, that vision is not totally accurate. Here, in the forward-thinking Neubau district, you’ll find a different vibe entirely. Independent boutiques offer on-trend design, artists exhibit in small-scale galleries and boho musicians play intimate gigs in packed-out neighbourhood bars. At the heart of it all is Max Brown 7th District, with its social-hub restaurant and community-favourite cocktail bar. This isn’t the Vienna you expected: it’s Vienna, reinvented.
