Best Cheap Kaerntner Strasse, Vienna Hotels

When it comes to luxury shopping in Vienna, few places top the gilded avenue of Kaertner Strasse, the capital's illustrious half mile of retail luxury. Running through south side of the Innere Stadt, this has been Vienna's main thoroughfare since Roman times. Kaertner Strasse isn't only about its treasure trove of premium stores either. From the city's foremost opera-house to its famous cathedral, a walk down the Kaertner Strasse is a real education in the Viennese way of life.

Hotels in Kaertner Strasse

It's not only the retail options that are illustrious here—Kaertner Strasse hotels have a well-deserved reputation for being the city's finest. The 5-star Hotel Sacher, founded by the creators of the Sachertorte (Austria's iconic chocolate cake), is right opposite the State Opera House. Apart from its lavish interiors and superb cuisine, this legendary hotel wins praise for its meticulous attention to detail. The Hotel Bristol is another luxury Kaertner Strasse hotel, decked out in regal style. Its 5 stars are earned thanks to its much-praised restaurant and exceptional service. For slightly less opulence in your accommodation, try the Pension Aviano, a townhouse hotel noted for friendliness and affordability.

Things to see in Kaertner Strasse

Kaertner Strasse has plenty to see, even for those less inclined towards a high-end shopping experience. At one end lies the State Opera House, Vienna's home for both ballet and opera. It also hosts the internationally famous Vienna Opera Ball, an exclusive evening of gorgeous gowns and black ties. The other end Kaertner Strasse opens out into the drama of the Stephensplatz, where the iconic Gothic spire of St. Stephen's Cathedral stands some 500 feet tall. In between these two are the ingredients for a luxury shopping spree. As well as flagship brands like Swankiness, Arman, and Butcherer, you'll discover legendary confectioners, up-market delicatessens, and crystal-chandelier makers. One outlet that shoppers and window shoppers will adore is the Steffi department store. Besides its designer brands and luxury cosmetics, its side-mounted glass elevator takes you away from all the retail bustle and straight to a fantastic view in its rooftop Skybar.

Good for lovers of luxury shopping and culture

Kaertner Strasse is the ideal place in Vienna to connect two of its foremost pleasures—the joyful retail indulgence to be found in its stores and the cultural enrichment in its theaters. Book your accommodation in Kaertner Strasse, and your daylight hours can be spent wandering from authentic Austrian chocolatiers to boutique designer stores, before sipping espressos in the city's smartest cafes. In the evening, a night at the opera, theater, or ballet beckons, with the opportunity to show off whatever outfit caught your eye that day among Kaertner Strasse's myriad of delights.
