Say gute nacht at the Hollman Beletage (from $224) the inn helmed by Austrian actor turned pastry chef Robert Hollmann. Rent a pumpkin-orange bicycle to explore the cobbled streets of surrounding Old Town.
Select from among 42 rooms varying dramatically in size and vibe at the Altstadt Hotel (from $207), a converted nineteenth-century townhouse in the city’s vibrant Spittelberg district. The Baroque Suite, designed by Italian architect Matteo Thun, has slate-colored damask wallpaper, tufted-crimson headboards, and massive chandeliers.
Feel like a member of the Imperial Court at the grandiose Hotel Sacher (from $576), the nineteenth-century hotel where there are nearly three staffers to every guest. Book one of the nine new contemporary suites—each comes with a terrace and sweeping views of the Vienna woods—for a slightly updated experience.
Save your euros for what matters (eating) and check in to the brand-new Wagner family-owned Hotel Fabrik (from $104). The former linen factory has been refashioned into a 39-room hostelry where rooms are spare but immaculate.
