Ruby Lissi Hotel & Bar
Ruby hotels are known for their trendy blend of chic design and old-world charm, and the Ruby Lissi is no exception. What makes the Lissi special, however, is its decorative theme of ‘the voyage’, with a décor inspired by railway carriages, hot air balloons, and steamships of yesteryear, all with a royal flair in honor of its namesake: the Empress Elisabeth. Two minutes’ walking brings guests to the Schwedenplatz U-Bahn station for the start of their own voyage into Vienna’s rich offerings, while the Hofburg Palace and the city’s many delightful museums are also easily reached on foot for those who want to soak up the stately streets of the historic 1st district.
Self-described ‘Lean Luxury’ in style, the simple-yet-sleek rooms feature extras such as rain showers, smart tablets, and even a Marshall amplifier for the musically-minded. The in-house 24-hour bar is the perfect place to unwind and socialise, with its chic style and chic cocktails; even featuring live music performances, it often feels less like a hotel’s bar and more like a social hotpot in its own right. Dozens of further bars, restaurants, and cafés surround the hotel for ample opportunities to find just the right snack, sip, or sit-down meal by the canal-side.
