Vienna’s first green upmarket  hotel sets the standard  for the future of the city, while honouring its rich artistic past. Described as “reminiscent of a sculptural creation by Koloman Moser – a sparkling cylinder, studded with large, oval precious stones“, Hotel Topazz is defined by its elegance and Viennese charm. Hotel Topazz combines landmark architecture with a holistic, resource-saving philosophy that starts with low-energy usage and carries through to locally-sourced food and the use of green building materials. Honor Vienna’s rich cultural past, while respecting the future, at Hotel Topazz, the city’s first green upscale hotel in the historic 1st district.



The hotel rises 10 stories in the air on one of the city’s smallest building sites. Its 31 rooms including a penthouse suite with terrace, are set over nine floors and fitted with custom-made furnishings, light fixtures and lush curtains, all in earthy and natural tones. The penthouse suite can either be used as a home for guest and be also used as a function room for receptions with astounding views over Vienna or for meetings. 



The hotel is approximately 23 km away from Vienna International Airport are within walking distance of the hotel as well as many bars and restaurants.  Surrounded by the most sought after attractions – including more than 60 museums, cathedrals, churches, shopping, wining, dining and famous coffee houses – the hotel pays tribute to Vienna’s artistic heritage of the late 19th and early 20th century.  



Its name, form and large oval windows draws influence from a silver vase, studded with amber gems, made by iconic Viennese artist Koloman Moser. Inside, each window is fitted with a divan bed integrated into the windowsill – the ideal spot to gaze down on the old town. The Viennese Modern Age is celebrated and revived throughout the hotel.
