With a view of the historic Michael's Gate and the luxury Steffl department store a few steps away, the Rosewood Vienna will open in July 2022 in a prime location in Austria's capital. The luxury hotel will be the first property of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in German-speaking Europe. 

"I am very pleased to open a unique luxury hotel like Rosewood Vienna in one of the most beautiful and historic cities in Europe," says Alexander Lahmer, managing director of Rosewood Vienna. He adds: "Rosewood Vienna is a tribute to the Viennese way of life and will become the centre of Vienna's vibrant scene, where culture, culinary delights and cosmopolitanism meet."

The Rosewood Vienna is located in a historic 19th century building, and was a collaboration between A2K Architects, BEHF Architects and interior designer Alexander Waterworth. It will  combine historic charm with the finest European architecture, timeless design and ultra-luxurious amenities to become a contemporary retreat, the company said in a statement.

Pure luxury 

The 99 spacious guest rooms, including 27 suites, celebrate the aesthetics from both the past and present using a thoughtful combination of elegant textural and artistic elements, combined with the latest technology. The centrepiece of Rosewood Vienna is its 178-sqm Presidential Suite, which offers the ultimate in luxurious amenities and design. 

Top cuisine and rooftop bar

In culinary terms, Rosewood Vienna pays tribute to the roots of the Austrian capital with a modern interpretation. With a separate entrance, the different areas of the light-flooded top floor promise a fine menu featuring European and Austrian cuisine. On the 6th floor, guests can look forward to a Show Kitchen Area in a casual atmosphere, the more elegant main dining room with adjoining terrace and garden oasis, and the private dining room – which can also be booked for intimate gatherings or events. On the 7th floor, classic cocktails with an innovative twist are served in the intimate ambience of the Rooftop Bar, allowing guests to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city above the rooftops.

Perfect setting

Inspired by a large traditional-style apartment, the Pavilion of Rosewood Vienna with its three elegant galleries forms an imposing space for social events and business meetings with amenities for up to 120 people. The spaces feature state-of-the-art technology and flexible floor plans with natural light illuminating the vibrant architectural features. 

Wellness deluxe

Designed as an elegant oasis, Sense® A Rosewood Spa presents intuitive, locally inspired offerings to promote the wellbeing of both mind and body. With unparalleled views over Vienna, it offers five treatment rooms, a "social suite" and a hydrotherapy and relaxation room, as well as a selection of treatments and therapies. The spa area also offers a fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment and personal trainer.
