Palais Hansen Kempinski re-opened after a major refurbishment in March 2013. Blending old-world charm and traditional detail with contemporary touches and cutting edge technology, it's a great base for exploring everything Vienna has to offer. The neo-classical building itself is a Vienna landmark: designed by architect Theophil Hansen, as a hotel, it had various uses in the 20th century. The renovated hotel is now a one of the city's most fashionable, with two restaurants, a cigar lounge, a welcoming lobby lounge bar, as well as excellent spa and fitness facilities.
