When will you realise, Vienna waits for you? ( Billy Joel)


Vienna - capital of Austria and voted World’sNumber One City to Live In for the eighth year running –is well named as City of Dreams. Home to Freud, Mozart and Beethoven, to Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt…Vienna needs to be on everyone’s Bucket List.

25 Hours Hotels at MuseumsQuartier in Vienna’s Seventh District is delivering their brand promise with their latest hotel here. You may think a summer holiday is about lounging on a beach but one visit to Vienna and I was totally absorbed and enchanted by the beauty and elegance of the architecture and the people; the effortlessly available culture and art, including the thought-provoking street art and, most of all, by the pristine white lightness of this city.



From the shimmering cathedrals to the glossy modern offices, Vienna is a golden,visual delight.So, what better way to dress in this city but by wearing cream, gold and white when possible?

I also loved the elegance of the Viennese, old and young but especially the older ladies:their style and attention to detail areso beautiful.This level of innate elegance is inspiring and has set my creative couture mind racing to try new ways of putting together my accessories and looking ‘finished’. Watch this space.

Having stayed with 25Hours Hotels in Berlin, I was excited about my Vienna tripand I was not disappointed: from the fabulous entrance suggesting craziness is welcome, to the beautiful suites and rooms, quirkiness and class mix effortlessly to give you an out of this world experience – legally! The hotel is the stage let to your mind run wild – helped a little by wall art suggesting days at the circus and nights at the burlesque theatre. Quotes on the walls of the cafes and hotel reception let you know you are in for the unexpected.




The hotel’s attention to detail is just beautiful. Antique gramophones and sumptuous fabrics meld with vivid murals and luxurious bedding. Fancy taking a bath on your terrace? Book one of the suites and enjoy the views. A Mermaid’s Cave? No problem. Nothing is forgotten; from high speed Wi-Fi to high speed bikes for getting around the city, 25Hours Hotels are reinventing hotel life.


I loved Vienna and my stay there; if class, calmness and elegance are your thing, you too will love this exquisite city with its centuries of heritage and history, of eastern and western culture contributing to a vibrant urban lifestyle. Thank you Vienna , it was intense.
