Hotel Erzherzog Rainer

A home away from home in cosmopolitan Vienna

Hotel Erzherzog Rainer

Proudly serving guests for over 100 years, the Hotel Erzherzog Rainer is a Viennese institution. Situated in the heart of the vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood of Freihausviertel, we’re surrounded by artisan stores, inspirational galleries and cosy cafes and just a stone’s throw from all the city’s hotspots and must-see attractions. Unforgettable Austrian hospitality awaits you.

Building: 1913

In the middle of the city’s creative 4th District, Hotel Erzherzog Rainer sits in a neighbourhood full of life, side by side with speciality stores and welcoming cafes. Our neighbourhood is a locals’ favourite, bohemian and arty, with a diverse food and contemporary art scene. Close to the vibrant centre, we’re conveniently within walking distance of all the must-sees — from the impressive State Opera to the Naschmarkt, a big public market and a foodies dream.

Classical furnished and cosy, our 79 rooms provide a great place to rest and relax following a day exploring beautiful Vienna. Refuel with a delicious meal in our restaurant, the Wiener Wirtschaft, serving traditional Viennese food with flair. Accompanied by a glass of local beer or wine — just heavenly.

The Hotel Erzherzog Rainer has welcomed guests with its genuine charm and top-class hospitality for over 100 years. Much has changed since we opened our doors in 1913, but the Viennese allure has remained. We look forward to welcoming you.
