Since 1991, Weltenbummler and cosmopolitans have been welcomed at the Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna. Initially opened by founder Otto Ernst Wiesenthalas an art gallery with only 24 rooms, over the years the house transformed into a place where art no longer merely hung on the walls. Artists, architects and designers created holistic eyperiential approaches and manifestations of the Viennese way of life. In which you can sleep in.
