Hotel Topazz

Hotel Topazz

From the outside, Hotel Topazz looks like a work of modern art, with large oval windows sticking out of the stone-like façade like strategically placed bubbles. As you step inside, you’ll be greeted with elegance — the hues are dark and neutral, with pops of interest such as the black-and-white chevron flooring in the Salon Topazz area.

The dark purples and oak browns give the hotel a romantic feel, and the rooms provide wide views of the city. Located on a quiet side street, the hotel is within a five-minute walk of Saint Stephen’s Cathedral and right off a major shopping street.

A buffet and á la carte breakfasts are served daily in Salon Topazz, or you can head across the street to sister hotel Lamée and grab a drink at the Lamée Rooftop.

Rooms

The 32 rooms, spread across eight floors, fall into three different categories — Superior, Deluxe and Prestige. All rooms feature en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, Wi-Fi and large bathrooms with rain showers.

The Prestige rooms are the largest option, with at least one, possibly two, oval windows with chaise longue. The Superior room features a private balcony, but no longue in the big oval windowsill. The Deluxe room is a bit smaller, but still offers a window with a longue.

The elegant rooms boast dark wood floors and bright marble bathrooms. However, the hotel’s personality still shines through and you’ll find details like fur-rimmed bedside lights and table lamps standing on metal duck legs.

Location

Stephansplatz, the geographical midpoint of Vienna, is a five-minute walk away. Here you’ll find Saint Stephen’s Cathedral and two high-end shopping streets, as well as cafes, restaurants and street musicians.

Despite its proximity to the bustling square, the hotel itself sits on a quiet side street so you can enjoy a bit of a calmer atmosphere.

Food and drink

  • Buffet and à la carte breakfast served daily in Salon Topazz.
  • Lamée Rooftop bar at the sister hotel (Lamée) across the street offers drinks and small bites.

Our opinion

We love Hotel Topazz for its playful architecture, elegant furnishings and location close to major landmarks like Saint Stephen’s Cathedral. Enjoy a drink on the rooftop of its sister hotel across the street in the evening.
