Altstadt Vienna

Image - Altstadt Vienna

The hotel is located in the 7th Viennese district, the Spittelberg-area, famous for its artistic flair and has been built in 1902 in the so-called Ring-street style. Originally the house used to be the palace of an industrial in the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy.

The house is interesting in terms of architectural history, since it was the first building in Vienna to be built in reinforced concrete ceilings. During the 1950s the house located a pension, during the last years before the opening of the Altstadt Vienna it was the home for emigrants from Russia, who received their visas for the USA, Canada or Israel.

In 1991 Otto E. Wiesenthal rebuilt the house into the Altstadt Vienna with originally 24 rooms and suites. Mr. Wiesenthal used to work as manager in the automobile industry, the computer business and in banks and he always dreamed of having an own hotel which could house his huge collection of paintings.

Contemporary art, unique design, charm and terrific comfort feature impressively throughout the Boutique Hotel Altstadt. The hotel's 42 rooms and suites, part of a grand Viennese apartment block, are spread out across five floors. Individuality reigns supreme in the rooms and hallways, particularly highlighted by the owner's passion for contemporary art, whose very own impressive collection is exhibited throughout the whole house. Rooms oozing in sumptuous stylishness are large and comfortable, decorated in classic chic colors with exclusive light fixtures, highest quality furnishings, luxurious materials and textiles.

All the rooms are equipped with a private bath or shower and toilet, cable-TV (flat-screen), direct-dial telephone, minibar, safety box, umbrella and hairdryer. A DVD-Player & Movies are available upon request as well as an ironing board and bathrobe. A DVD-Player can be found as a standard in all Suites.

In the Altstadt Vienna you can find work of art from Niki de Saint Phalle, Leibowitz, Andy Warhol, Franz Ringel, Blume, Schmögner, Lisa Huber, Eva Wagner, Barbara Riedl, R. C. Andersen, Peter Atanasov, Ranzoni, Franz Wiesenthal, Kalanikov, Hammerstiel, Gilbert & George, Helnwein, Attersee, Miguel Henz, Prachensky and lots more.
