Hotel Caroline enjoys a central location near Vienna’s main train station. The new building connects the two existing parts of the hotel dating back to the 19th century by means of a central corner building with five floors. The new façade is clad with bricks, a nod to the history of Vienna’s 10th district, which still boasts a number of historical industrial buildings.
The interior breaks with the “rough” look of the exterior and has a milder effect. The comfort of the turn-of-the-century Viennese salon – with dark wood, Thonet chairs and soft, slinky fabrics – awaits guests. Cosy upholstered furniture gives the rooms a homey atmosphere. The rooms are furnished individually and each have their own style. This high level of individuality is also reflected in the façade, where the French windows on the various floors are not aligned in the customary way. The interior and exterior are united through timeless elegance, leading the Viennese salon into the 21st century with the highest standards of contemporary hotel culture.
