An art hotel. A place where the impossible becomes possible – where there is always something new to discover, borders are being constantly re-invented…

SO/VIENNA is a vibrant lifestyle hotel that surprises with contemporary and entertaining experiences and captures the authentic atmosphere of Austria’s capital city.

Every Sofitel is a unique blend of sophistication and the French art of living. The Sofitel Vienna is situated in the heart of the Austrian capital, and its contemporary design is inspired by the nearby St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Stay in an “archisculpture” designed by one of France’s top architects, Jean Nouvel. The façade of this 21st-century masterpiece with its monochrome color palette and diamond roof pattern reflects the influence of the Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Inside, colorful works of art illuminate the huge surfaces. Experience a childish fascination with Pipilotti Rist’s dazzling video murals and admire Patrick Blanc’s colossal vertical plant wall, which acts as a living tableau in continuous flux.

The entirely glass-clad Das LOFT restaurant seems to hover in the sky and offers a unique view of the historic and cosmopolitan Vienna. Its masterly crafted kaleidoscopic light ceiling invites guests and passers-by alike to dream.
