Hi, every 25hours Hotel has a unique theme, taken from the glorious times of the past, with vintage playing a dominant role in every 25hours hotel.
In Hamburg for example you can breathe the maritime air of the past, in Frankfurt you get the iconic jeans fabric look and feel and in Vienna – guess what – you dive into the vintage and circus era of the early 20th century.
The architects of BWM have revived the ugly building from the 1970ies, which is located at the border between the first and seventh district of Vienna, and extended it with three modern glass floors including a circus-themed loft bar and 34 vintage suites, which were opened in March 2011. The whole hotel, which was previously used as a dormitory by the way, will get fully operational in late 2012.

We start our tour now outside the hotel and will advance to the attic of the 25hour hotel, where we are going to chat with some bloggers and have a nice view over Vienna too. Let the spectacle begin!

Trautson Palace and the Weghuber Park are located in front of the hotel building.
We take the elevator to the top.
