Vienna: Bernd Schlacher, owner of MOTTO group, has opened the 91-room Hotel MOTTO in the centre of Vienna.

Comprising 83 rooms and eight suites, Hotel MOTTO is located in the centre of the city. It features a main restaurant and bar, an open-air rooftop garden and bar, a ground floor patisserie, private fitness and sauna rooms as well as meeting and event space. 

The historic building has housed hotels for over three centuries. The first, The Golden Cross, opened in 1665. The last, Hotel Kummer, opened in 1872 and became a social hub for artists, painters, sculptors, writers, actors and musicians. It became the setting John Irving’s novel The Hotel New Hampshire.

Chez Bernard – Restaurant et Bar, the hotel’s main organic restaurant, occupies the top two floors of the building and sits under a glass dome – a new addition by Arkan Zeytinoglu Architects. The interior design is inspired by 1920s Paris. 

Up on the roof, a wrap-around roof terrace houses a 40-seat bar and additional lounge  seating. 

“Hotel MOTTO is a locally-rooted visual story,” said Bernd Schlacher, owner and creative director of the MOTTO Group. “I wanted to combine the traditional Viennese architecture with the glamour of 1920s Paris, but infuse the design with some personal design touches inspired by the Scandinavian comfort and the Japanese ‘WABI SABI’ culture.”

The MOTTO Group comprises the cult pub MOTTO, the two-storey restaurant and café MOTTO am FLUSS, and MOTTO Brot bakery on the ground floor of Hotel MOTTO. Further information about the hotel can be found here
