A luxurious five-star hotel consisting of two restored palaces, the Palais Leitenberger and the Palais Henckel von Donnersmarck, Radisson S.A.S Palais Hotel is located right in the heart of Vienna on the Parkring and is a walk away in many of Vienna’s historical districts. Parkring, opposite Stadtpark, was one of the most aristocratic and noble parts of Vienna back in the days of the monarchy.

Both palaces were built during the “fin de siècle,” in the second half of the 19th century, when Vienna was a center of power. The architectural style of the Palais hotel is an attraction in its own right and was a trendsetter for the whole of Europe at the time it was built. The palaces were fully and faithfully transformed into one of the most luxurious five-star hotels in Europe. The hotel rooms were equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, a mini bar, ironing facilities, water kettles, and a flat screen cable TV, and luxurious bathrooms with heated flooring but most of its traditional 19th-century design and furnishings remains intact. Elegant armchairs and intricate wallpapers adorn the room. The room rates include free use of the minibar with a limit of one filling per day.

In the hotel is an award-winning gourmet restaurant, Le Siècle, which specializes in seafood and serves Austrian and International cuisine. The Belami Bar serves bar food, appetizers, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, while the Palais Café serves light snacks, homemade pastries, freshly brewed coffee, tea and other beverages. The hotel also features a Royal Club, geared towards businesspeople and accommodates any of their business needs.

There are tons to do while staying at the Radisson Palais Hotel, such as taking a walk in Statdpark and visiting the Museums Quartier Wien, which is about two kilometers away. In the area is the Vendome Floating-center where guests can take a break in the saltwater flotation tanks.
