The Levante Parliament is the perfect launching pad for a comfortable stay in Vienna. The building, which dates back to 1908, has been decorated around the four elements of life: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. The hotel itself can be considered an art gallery, featuring stunning glasswork by Nemtoi and photography by Kurt Themessl.
Follow Themessl’s portraits of dancers to one of the 70 rooms to find comfortable beds, many of which overlook a quaint garden. Venture outside to explore what Vienna has to offer. Check out the Sisi Museum
at the Hofburg Imperial Palace, Klimt’s legendary Beethoven Frieze at the Secession
, and walk in the footsteps of the Hapsburgs at the Schoenbrunn Palace
during the day. After your disco nap, head to Bar Restaurant Café Willendorf
for a quick bite or Motto
for a fabulous spread before going bar & café hopping.
