A full-service hotel with a twist on the conventional, Radisson RED Vienna occupies a landmark building whose white metal façade, gold-tinted windows and glass house on the rooftop set it apart from the rest of the buildings in the neighborhood. The hotel’s 179 rooms and suites feature a modern design with exposed-concrete ceilings, a series of paintings with red highlights, and large bay windows that double as comfortable seating where guests can enjoy the view of the canal and the inner city.
Housed in in a greenhouse-like structure with its terrace cantilevering over the floor below, the hotel’s Istros rooftop bar is set to become Vienna’s new place to be for drinks with a view. The exceptional space offers a cozy yet extravagant lounge feel, which blurs the boundaries between indoors and outdoors with a 360-degree panoramic view of Vienna. Viennese locals and hotel guests alike can enjoy expertly crafted cocktails, a great selection of wines and spirits, beer on tap and barista coffees while watching the sun set over the bustling city below and the Vienna Woods in the distance, listening to the DJ playing smooth tunes.
The ground floor of Radisson RED Vienna is home to Sarai restaurant and its eclectic cuisine inspired by the Silk Road offering dishes from East Asia, India, the Middle East and Europe. Sarai is the social hub of the hotel with co-working spaces, a bar, and a comfortable lounge where guests and locals meet, work, eat and drink. On warm days, the inner courtyard offers al-fresco dining beneath the giant eye-catching mural by Viennese visual artist David Leitner, which mirrors the district’s urban surroundings. Flexible meeting spaces include a fully-equipped meeting room with natural light, and a private boardroom with video-conferencing technology which connects to the courtyard and Sarai restaurant, extending the options for interactive and creative meetings.
Radisson RED Vienna’s location makes the hotel a great base for business and leisure travelers with easy access on foot or by public transport to the Schottenring metro stop just outside the hotel. Situated just outside the busy inner city, Radisson RED Vienna offers easy and convenient connections to the city’s business hubs, the main station, and the airport.
“We’re taking a cool, flexible, contemporary approach to hospitality at Radisson RED Vienna. Professional and sociable, our young and energetic hotel team invites guests to do what works best for them, without unnecessary formalities. The hotel reflects its location and the young, hip surroundings with the buzzing nightlife on the Danube Canal: from its lobby, restaurant and courtyard, to the sensational rooftop bar, it fits right into the vibrant local social scene”, says Yilmaz Yildirilmar, Area Senior Vice President Central & Eastern Europe at Radisson Hotel Group.
Vienna, the home of the Habsburg monarchy for more than six centuries, boasts an immense variety of palaces, museums, musical venues, gourmet destinations and shops to enjoy the finer things in life. From the Habsburg Palace complex in the center to the sprawling Schönbrunn palace, from the grand collections of the former emperors to the innovative MuseumsQuartier, cultural highlights abound. The ‘City of Music’ was home to composers like Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Haydn, and is still to this day a thriving live-music stage for the Vienna Philharmonic, the State Opera and the Musikverein concert hall.
Yildirimlar adds: “Vienna with all its history, music and art is the perfect city for the debut of our Radisson RED brand in the German-speaking market. This hotel’s unique architecture and interior design, the sensational rooftop and a team that delivers great hospitality ‘with a twist’, as we say, is setting the scene for more Radisson RED openings to follow across the region, and will surely become a fixture in the Viennese hotel market.”
Radisson RED Vienna is the fourth hotel of the Group in Vienna, joining Radisson Blu Style Hotel, Vienna in the first district, Radisson Blu Park Royal Palace Hotel, Vienna near Schönbrunn Palace and Hotel Rathauspark, a member of Radisson Individuals close to Vienna City Hall.
