Unafraid to let its personality shine, the hotel is filled with a bright luminous purple, said to be the favourite shade of its owner and founder Norbert Winkelmayer. He deliberately curated the Sans Souci to be different from other nearby high-end hotels through exceptionally friendly service and personalized design elements.
In a city brimming with tradition, the Sans Souci is singular in its luxurious design and relaxed style, pairing modern art with antique Versailles-influenced décor and elements of Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau). This is the ideal stay for those seeking a modern boutique experience in the artistic quarter of historic Vienna.
The boutique hotel prides itself on attention to detail, and it’s evident in each pillow, mirror and cocktail that has been meticulously planned to match the ambience. From the environmentally friendly wood blocks used to indicate if you want your towels washed, to the framed images of treats available on each floor (coffee on the first, cake on the second, champagne on the third), nothing here has been overlooked.
All rooms have separate toilets from the bathrooms, as well as double vanities and amenities from U.K. brand Molton Brown. You’ll notice a stripe on only one set of towels — this helps you identify which one is yours.
Each accommodation features artworks from Winkelmayer’s private collection. Your room might display a piece by Roy Lichtenstein or photography from Hubertus Hohenlohe Winklemayer.
The large Sans Souci Spa includes an indoor pool, guests can also relax in a sauna, a steam bath, and a relaxing area free of charge. A modern fitness centre with a personal trainer is available as well.
The hotel also features a bar and the Veranda restaurant, where guests can enjoy Austrian and international cuisine.
