By combining a 1930s-style Viennese charm with a cosmopolitan atmosphere, Hotel LAMÉE makes guests feel like movie stars, enjoying life to the fullest. Located in the centre of the city, distances to museums, exclusive shopping spots, the Chamber Opera and other sights are very short. The most direct neighbour of the design hotel is St. Stephen’s Cathedral, which is just a stone’s throw away and can be perfectly seen from some of the facility’s rooms. Nevertheless, those who prefer to sleep in do not need to worry about waking up when St. Stephen’s 22 bells start tolling since all the windows are sound-proof. Guests can stay at one of the boutique hotel’s 32 rooms that are all decorated with a loving attention to detail. Whether they choose a Superior room, for example, 48  |  Issue 52  |  July 2017

can enjoy a particularly stunning view of the city centre, while drinking a glass of wine or a cocktail.“In summer, we want to offer several extraordinary, creative events, for example club events such as a silent disco or an open-air cinema,” Wexberg states. “Another highlight is our Café Bar BLOOM situated on the ground floor, where a great range of culinary delights are being served.” Viennese citizens, as well as hotel guests, come to this place to quickly get an espresso or to enjoy lunch or dinner with cocktails. The BLOOM sandwich with grilled beef, bacon, eggs and potato wedges is just one example for various delicious meals.
