Quick check-in at the Hotel Schani Wien

Why waste time? Check in using your smartphone and also use it to open your door, if you feel like it. This way, you always carry your room key with you and have more time for the really important things in life: such as relaxing with a drink from the bar in our lobby -- lovingly called Schani’s Wohnzimmer (Schani’s living room). Or in Schani’s Garden -- our green oasis in the middle of Vienna. You will find many ways to leave daily stress behind you and relax. However, we also have something for the workaholics among you: a co-working space in a relaxed atmosphere that provides the ideal environment for working in peace.

Away from Vienna Central Station, into the hotel 

The perfect location of our hotel, situated centrally and directly next to the Hauptbahnhof (Central Station), makes your arrival in Vienna easier. Ideal for travellers coming by train, but also only 20 minutes away from the airport by Intercity and Railjet. Let’s be honest, “get to the hotel” is what comes to mind first when we want to rest or freshen up following both a shorter or longer journey. We will make this very easy for you. Here, you can find more details on how to get to us.

A relaxed way to get to know Vienna 

Do you want to set out immediately to explore Vienna and its many sites? Our hotel is the ideal starting point. Schloss Belvedere (the Belvedere Palace) is only a short walk away and invites you to explore the city’s culture and history in its exhibition rooms, as well as take a stroll through its beautiful, blooming palace garden. Should you be more interested in contemporary art, you will find it at the 21er Haus, which is also close by. Our hotel is not far from the Inner City, Vienna’s 1st District. The excellent connection on the D tram line, which stops right in front of Hotel Schani Wien, will get you into the city centre within a few minutes. This tram line is basically the sightseeing Ring line, as it goes past all sights on the Ringstrasse (Ring Road). This tram – nicknamed “Bim” by Austrians - is also our tip for discovering Vienna, as it provides a good, initial overview of Vienna and the Ringstrasse. The D line will take you directly to Palais Schwarzenberg (the Schwarzenberg Palace), Karlskirche (St. Charles Church), the Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),  Burggarten, the Hofburg Palace, the Parliament and the Rathaus (City Hall), as well as the Burgtheater. If you take it to the last stop Nußdorf, you can even enjoy Vienna’s famous wine at one of the much loved local “Heurigens”!

Book the perfect hotel in Vienna at great rates 

Vienna is rather inexpensive in comparison to other European cities and has a lot to offer. This includes the combination of tradition and modern design, which creates a cosy feeling and makes accommodation less costly at the same time. This is why you can book our rooms at inexpensive rates and still get excellent service and first-class rooms with all the trimmings. Whether you spend your business trip or your sightseeing holiday with your family or partner at our hotel, you will find everything you need for your stay. Additionally, we provide concierge services, which are usually more typical of luxury establishments. The inexpensive room prices at the Design Hotel Schani also depend on your additional options and packages, which can be selected individually when making your reservation. Moreover, you can choose between a fixed and a flexible rate, which will also determine the price paid. Even the choice of your room is completely up to you. A city trip to Vienna with its arts and culture or a family holiday with action and attractions can be so comfortable, if you stay at a central location and don’t have to worry about anything. Our team will always try to make our guests feel happy, so you can feel totally at ease.


What does this mean? 

There is a good reason why our Viennese hotel is called “Schani”. The Austrian term “Schani” is not only associated with the so-called Schanigarten -- a garden restaurant -- it actually means both a servant and a trusted person, who will make you feel at ease and who knows what you like. More details on the Schani can be found here.

What and who is behind Hotel Schani Wien?

We are not new to this business; our family has been running hotels for generations. However, this does not mean we live in the past. We have struck out in a new direction and included guest requests, sustainability and the environment into our hotel concept. Here you can find what this means in more detail.
