Radisson Red Vienne.Radisson Red Vienna.

Already represented in Vienna with two Radisson Blu hotels and a member of its Radisson Individuals collection, the Hotel Rathauspark, the eponymous group is opening a fourth establishment in the Austrian capital. For the occasion, its lifestyle brand Radisson RED

has set up shop near the city center and a stone’s throw from the Schottenring subway station.

On the edge of the Leopoldstadt district, the hotel is housed in a new building where Radisson RED has deployed its arty spirit and sense of design, particularly in the 179 rooms and suites with exposed concrete ceilings and bay windows that serve as seats to enjoy the view of the Danube Canal and the city center. A view that hotel guests can also enjoy, and how, at the rooftop bar Istros. Housed in a sort of glass house in the shape of a greenhouse, extended by a terrace, Istros lends itself to relaxing moments over a cocktail or a glass of wine.

On the first floor, the Radisson RED Vienna houses the Sarai restaurant, which focuses on the cuisines of the countries along the Silk Road, with an interior courtyard in fine weather. The Sarai is the focal point of the lobby and also has work spaces and a lounge for business meetings and dinners. For meetings, the hotel has a room that can accommodate 80 people, fully equipped and lit by natural light, and a boardroom connected to the courtyard and the Sarai restaurant.

While a first Citadines residence opened in Vienna in recent weeks, other developments are expected this year in the Austrian capital with, on the IHG side, the entry of the Grand Hotel into the Vignette Collection and a Hotel Indigo in the works. In a different vein, the lifestyle brand Ruby Hotels, which has three establishments in the city, will be adding a coworking space with 400 workstations this summer, the Ruby Paul Workspaces, located in the 1st arrondissement.
