100 years of Viennese charm
Erzherzog Rainer – philosophy
News from the archduke
Starting with April 2019 all rooms at the Hotel Erzherzog Rainer will have air-conditioning. During the construction works regarding the air-conditioning as well as other renovation works, we close the hotel between January and March 2019.
Look forward to a completely fresh Hotel Erzherzog Rainer from April 2019.
Perfect hospitality under the patronage of Erzherzog Rainer
The Viennese hotel's name alone shows its great past and the past of an imperial Austria. This is probably the most “Viennese” of all the Schick Hotels and focuses a lot on tradition. It was Leopold Nedomansky, once a picture frame purveyor to the royal household, who built the hotel. Right from the start it was clear that an aristocratic name would be part of this traditionally Viennese hotel's image.
Vienna - a city with a great past ...
… but also a city with a great present. Wherever you go in Vienna, you will meet signs of Vienna's imperial golden age everywhere in the city. Magnificent buildings in Vienna's city centre bear witness to its great past. Apart from this, a vibrant, young city has also evolved here; it's fascinating to see how the past and the present get along.
Hosts of the old school
At the hotel on Wiedner Hauptstraße traditional hospitality is held in high esteem. The famous “extra mile” for every visitor is extremely important to our team. Our guests very often become regular guests and are known by name and their special wishes. Our staff takes these wishes very seriously and strives to fulfil them.
The greatest wish of our guests always has been an air-conditioning. This project will be finished at the begin of 2019. From April 2019 on not only the public rooms but the bedrooms as well will have air-conditioning.
Company of the year 2015
The hospitality at the Hotel Erzherzog Rainer is also honoured by the Viennese residents. This was shown by a special award which the hotel has received in summer 2015. The residents of the 4th district of Vienna have voted for the Hotel Erzherzog Rainer to be the "Company of the year 2015" in the 4th district organised by the "Wiener Bezirks Business Award". A great confirmation for all the staff working in the hotel!
Cultural offers in all directions
The hotel's location - behind Karlskirche, close to the Vienna State Opera and in close vicinity to Belvedere Palace, Palais Schwarzenberg and various town houses – is a statement in itself. All these sights are located within walking distance. After a successful opera performance why not take a stroll through Operngasse and Wiedner Haupstraße towards your hotel – this walk alone is a great Vienna experience.
A jogging tour in the palace gardens
A walk in the Belvedere Palace gardens is revelation in all seasons. The entrance is free and if you come early enough you will meet the Viennese runners in the morning. Fancy a bit of sportive activity yourself? Why not join them?
Meet the proverbial Viennese charm
At Hotel Erzherzog Rainer you can go back in time if you so wish. Viennese people used to be known for their charming manners and here at the hotel you might be greeted with the following: “Küss die Hand” (I kiss your hand), “Gnädige Frau” (my gracious lady) or hear the expression “gschamster Diener” (your obedient server).
Hotel Erzherzog Rainer wants to introduce you to the lifestyle of this era in Vienna's history as well as possible. With staff of the “old school”, tasteful ambience and historic references throughout the hotel.
Consciousness of tradition all the way to the kitchen
The Wiener Wirtschaft restaurant also refers to the delicious and sumptuous tradition of the Viennese cuisine, that emerged from the international melting pot of the former empire. Taste the perfect goulash, the classic Viennese Schnitzel and the delicious desserts that are quite literally a guilty pleasure worth enjoying.
