Boutique hotel brand Hotel Indigo, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio, has opened Hotel Indigo Vienna – Naschmarkt, its very first property in Austria.
Hotel Indigo Vienna – Naschmarkt, located in the ‘Margareten’ district, features 158 guest rooms which reflect the story of the district’s secret gardens and hidden treasures.
The design was inspired by famed local architect, Otto Wagner, a key member of the Secessionist movement. If the ground level looks innocuous, the top floors are decorated with floral motifs in brightly coloured porcelain and gold leaf, a hallmark of the new style.
The hotel’s entrance is small and understated leading guests through a long corridor and through to the “hidden” hotel lobby and public space. Within the centre of the hotel lies an atrium flooded with natural light and greenery, creating a harmonious transition between urban living to a sanctuary of calm.
Continuing the secret garden theme, the hotel has a rooftop garden resembling an urban jungle, with the hope of creating a new habitat for insects and birds, helping to contribute to biodiversity that surrounds the hotel.
Pigment, the onsite restaurant takes its inspiration from the nearby Naschmarkt, a fusion of cultures and culinary delights, and brings locally sourced ingredients to life. The restaurants signature dishes, also reflect the hotel’s overall foliage theme. Within the ground floor of the hotel, there is also a lobby bar, where guests and locals can enjoy snacks and cocktails created by the mixologists.
We are pleased to open our doors and accept our first guests into the first Hotel Indigo in Austria. We sit in the heart of the surrounding neighbourhood and strive to make all the locals proud, by helping to bring a bit of that external story in so guests can truly experience what Vienna has to offer.
