Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will open the luxury hotel Rosewood Vienna in the heart of Vienna in July 2022. The hotel group is thus expanding its portfolio to five European destinations and adding its first luxury hotel in the German-speaking region.

Located directly on the Graben, one of the most famous streets in Vienna's Old Town, the Rosewood Vienna is surrounded by the city's best shopping, restaurants and sights.

Centrally located in the heart of Vienna's Old Town at Petersplatz 7, in the 19th century Erste Bank building, Rosewood Vienna presents a contemporary renovation in one of Europe's most historic locations. The group is also currently having a former bank building converted in Munich, where Rosewood will open a hotel next year.

"I am very excited to open a unique luxury hotel like Rosewood Vienna in one of Europe's most beautiful and historic cities," said Alexander Lahmer, managing director of Rosewood Vienna. "Rosewood Vienna is a tribute to the Viennese way of life and will be the focal point of Vienna's vibrant scene, where culture, culinary arts and cosmopolitanism meet. As with all Rosewood hotels, we are committed to the philosophy of honoring the history and character of the place."

Former bank building becomes luxury hotel

In the historic building, Rosewood collaborated with A2K Architects, BEHF Architects and interior designer Alexander Waterworth to create a place that, enveloped in historic charm, fuses the finest European architecture, timeless design, ultra-luxurious amenities and modern event spaces.

The 99 guest rooms, including 27 suites, celebrate the aesthetics of the past and present, with artistic elements combined with the latest technological equipment. Considered the centerpiece of Rosewood Vienna is the 178-square-foot Presidential Suite. Although each room reveals its individual character, they are all united by a harmonious, neutral color palette, accented by subtle contrasts in a modern way.

Extensive food and beverage offerings

Rosewood Vienna also pays culinary tribute to the Austrian capital's roots in a modern interpretation for which Rosewood is prized by foodies worldwide. With a separate entrance on Tuchlauben 4, the various areas of the light-filled top floor promise a fine menu of European and Austrian cuisine, as well as cosmopolitan flair and timeless elegance.

On the 6th floor, guests will find a Show Kitchen area in a casual atmosphere, the more elegant Main Dining Room with adjacent terrace and garden oasis, and the Private Dining Room. On the 7th floor, classic cocktails are served with an innovative twist in the Rooftop Bar, designed by renowned interior design studio Kroenland. Above the rooftops of Vienna, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.

Inspired by a grand apartment once located in the heart of the city, Rosewood Vienna's Pavilion, with its three elegant galleries, creates an imposing space for social events and business meetings for up to 120 people. The rooms feature state-of-the-art technology and flexible floor plans with natural light that showcases architectural facets.
