Brit Decor: Travel / Grand Ferdinand








If like me, your wanderlust eyes are constantly scouring the globe for an elegant getaway where you can really kick-back and pamper yourself in style, then the Grand Ferdinand Hotel in Vienna may be just the place.

This, Weitzer's newest jewel in the crown, remains true to the design-conscious hotel brand's perfectly formed portfolio; Grand Ferdinand has its own unique identity. Located on the bustling Ringstra├če, the design philosophy applied here is one of a forward thinking approach to the celebration of Vienna's rich and elegant history 'by moving forward, not by looking back.'  

If beautiful interiors and mouthwateringly good culinary delights are as high on your holiday checklist as they are on mine, this 188 room-delight with a total of three restaurants, ticks all of the travel boxes. On the ground floor is the Grand Ferdinand restaurant complete with floor-to-ceiling windows which look out onto the historic cityscape. You can expect some of the best in traditional Austrian cuisine here, served on gold-edged porcelain and showered in light from the the handmade Lobbyer chandeliers, no less.

Next door to the latter is Gulasch & Champagne, interestingly this eatery serves fast-food, Viennese-style, ranging from sausages and Leberkase sandwiches to, you've guessed it, traditional goulash.  The third culinary offering from the hotel is the Grand Etage - Situated on the top floor, this hotspot is reserved exclusively for guests, who are rewarded with good food, incredible views over the city and a rooftop pool.

According to the hotel's owner, Florian Weitzer, the key design element to each of the guest rooms is one of 'timeless elegance, contemporary comfort and soulful extras'. I am certainly swooning for the charcoal grey walls and dark wooden flooring, married with must-have detailing, such as the simple marble sinktops, leather-framed mirrors and anglepoise lamps. 

Style is seeping from the very core of this glamorous hotel and I hope you've enjoyed checking in with me.
