A glance behind the scenes of top class hotels and restaurants is provided by sundays, which has a summer mood. A cosy living room-lobby and 9 rooms on the Beletage provide inner-city flair. Trade fair-compatible but still special: the ‘offbeat’ building for the new Messehotel presents fine details inside and out with its concave plaza frontage on the Messeareal, the Viennese trade fair grounds. The ‘Architecture Hotel’ Loisium does not only provide for wellness and culinary delights, but architectural ones too.
