About the Hotel Altstadt Vienna

  • Marie's Home - Altstadt Vienna hotel
  • corridor rooms 31-38 - Altstadt Vienna hotel

Your check-in to the Altstadt Vienna - a warm and friendly welcome, your room - a unique style retreat, and the lobby - a cozy salon with an open fireplace.

The Altstadt Vienna offers 45 rooms and suites as well as long stay apartments spread across the five storeys of a Patrician house built in 1902. Each hallway and each floor have their own stil, and each and every room is individually designed to meet your personal needs. The huge art collection which can be admired throughout the hotel makes this even more special: a Philippe Starck bathroom, an original Helnwein somewhere along the staircase, and a Prachensky at the front desk. Even some of Vienna's museums enrich the collection by borrowing art works to the Altstadt.

The Salon often accomodates vernissages and cultural events giving the Altstadt as a place-to-be an even more diverse and stylish ambiance.

Bright and colourful or classic and elegant, find your personal room you feel well in and let the Altstadt become your home in the city of Vienna.

The owner Otto Ernst Wiesenthal, himself a frequent traveller: Create a place in a way that you yourself love to spend your time there.

The hotel is located in the 7th Viennese district, the Spittelberg-area, famous for its artistic flair, and was built in 1902 in the so-called Ring-street style.

Since 1998, the Patrician house is a member of Castle Hotels And Mansions, a cooperation of romantic hotels, historical houses in the countryside and restaurants in seven European countries.

Originally, the house used to be the palace of an industrial in the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy. He owned one of the biggest company for sanitary-products and used the palace as a showroom for his products.
Over the years factory halls were built into the court of the house, which were reconstructed into lofts. The house is interesting in terms of architecural 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 US, 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 a manager in the automobile industry, the computer business and in banks. He always dreamt of owning a hotel which could also house his huge collection of paintings.

During the last ten years the house has been enlarged with apartments and has become a meeting point for artists, musicians and individual travellers looking for a characteristic hotel with excellent service.
