People need rooms, that inspire them. And such that tell stories, just like themselves. On the occasion of our 25th anniversary, we did a portrait of 25 things in the hotel, that influence the Altstadt-experience and make it what it is. A refuge of the Viennese attitude towards life, a place of joy and happiness.
Everything in life returns.
A curvaceous candelabra from the 30s finds its way home.
In the 1950s, it hung in the salon of an apartment in this selfsame house at No. 41 Kirchengasse. The owner moved out and took this special piece with her.
Years later: In her mother's estate, the daughter finds a beautiful candelabra, but has no use for it. But here we definitely do. Toda it hangs in "Helga's Room", in its oroginal location. At the Altstadt Vienna, good craftsmanship is held in high esteem. As is tradition, transposed to the pulse of the modern world.
By the way. the most well known candelabra design of the 20th century can be found in our Opera Suite: the Metropolitan Candelabra by Lobmeyr.
