SO Vienna

With its ultra-modern design and convenient location, the SO Vienna hotel is the perfect destination for your next stay in the city. This overview will look at the hotel amenities, services, and attractions that make this hotel one of the top choices for visitors to Vienna. From its spacious rooms to its on-site restaurant, the SO Vienna hotel has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.


Jean Nouvel was one of France's top architects. He designed the Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom. This was preceded partly by a complete facelift of the hotel's hall, rooms, and suites.

SO Vienna is energetic, expressive, and vibrant. Even the most active travelers are always surprised by something new and exciting here. With its unique approach to hospitality, the SO brand is a bright addition to the global hotel market. A keen eye for the latest trends, hip beats, an avant-garde design, and pulse-pounding bars and events are all SO hallmarks.

You will find SO/ hotels in some of the most exciting destinations worldwide. These hotels are world-class destinations where you can experience the best of local culture and enjoy the unique pleasures that it offers. This philosophy comes to life at Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom through the brand's signature perfection and finesse. So it is no wonder that in September 2018, the SO Vienna brand added it to its exclusive portfolio.

That was enough to make the hotel, built in 2010 by Jean Nouvel. The lobby and 182 rooms were also updated. In 2018, the iconic color combination of black, gray, and white was carefully adapted under Gregor Eichinger, a renowned Viennese architect. Additionally, several themes from Vienna's rich history have been reinterpreted and softly integrated into the existing atmosphere.

Moreover, every SO address contains a unique "sense" of place, a soulful hum, and the soul of the destination. Living intensely means not following other people's rules. The hotel allows everyone to be who they are, just as every hotel has a unique personality and style. SO Vienna is the ideal place to be.


The Sofitel is conveniently located in the trendy Donaukanal waterside, which runs through Vienna. Besides, there are many pop-up bars, restaurants, and shops, with a view of the bustling Schwedenplatz. You can view the Prater Riesenrad (Ferris wheel) from the hotel's west side. You can also walk 5 minutes to the old town center, while Stephansdom takes 10 minutes. There are also excellent transport links from the location.

Style and Character

As John Neuvel's modern design philosophy dictates, the feeling here is futuristic. The Stephansdom church's roof is reflected in the black and white color scheme. Fans of minimalism will love the darkened corridors and bedroom sliding doors. However, comfort lovers will enjoy Sofitel's cold shoulder.

SO guests are as creative as they can be —a colorful mix of fashionable socializers. They love to have fun and not take themselves too seriously. SO is fun and bold and bursts with energy from the local area and exciting surprises. Moreover, SO/ hotels welcome dazzling personalities of every origin.

Service and Facilities

The friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating staff at reception will welcome you in at least three languages and provide genuine advice. Every interaction is personal. You can also hire bikes and take walking tours around the city.

Moreover, a full-service spa is available with treatments. Weary travelers should try the Balinese massage or traditional Hammam. The gym is well-equipped. The hotel also offers shuttle services to Vienna Airport. Parking is available as well.


There are 182 guest rooms. The beds are comfortable, and you can customize your sleeping experience with the pillow menu. A mini-bar, bose speakers, Hermes amenities, and other Sofitel-inspired features are also available. Moreover, the rooms are spacious. Plus, the hotel rooms all have the same color scheme. Apart from the large rooms and excellent amenities, rainfall showers are also available. There is also a black suite, and a room upgrade is possible.


With fantastic views of Vienna from the 18th floor, Das Loft bar and restaurant is the jewel of Sofitel Vienna. Striking artwork by Pipilotti Rist decorates the ceiling. The mix of Austrian-French cuisine is also enjoyable. Classics such as lamb or Saibling fish are good options. There is also a wide selection of wines and a knowledgeable sommelier.

A breakfast buffet offers a great selection of Austrian sweets, cheeses, meats, and bread. In addition, you can find a "health bar" with granolas or toppings alongside green smoothies.

Spa & Wellness

The spa features 5 treatment rooms, including those for couples. Facials, body wraps, and body scrubs are some available services. The spa also has a spa tub. Aromatherapy is one of the many treatments available. Plus, there is also a fitness center.

However, massage services require reservations. Contact your Travel Designer as soon you have the booking confirmation before arrival to make an appointment.


You can request interconnecting rooms. Plus, many families enjoy the roof-top views. However, there are no children's clubs. The hotel's overall vibe is more business than family-oriented. Pets are welcome at the hotel upon request.


This 5-star hotel is in a great location in the city center. It is just a short walk from the Opera and other attractions. The property also offers a range of amenities and services, including a spa and restaurant. Plus, shops and other entertainment options surround it. SO Vienna is the perfect place for your next stay in Vienna. It captures the authentic atmosphere of the country.
