Bicycle hire instead of a limousine service, hammocks in hotel rooms and a trailer as a suite in the front garden – all makes up the exciting world that is simply referred to as ‘Urban Stay – Smart Luxury’ at Hotel Daniel Vienna. It’s a concept that has also gone down well with local city dwellers, making the Daniel Vienna an urban meeting place that’s a lot more than simply ‘a good place to stay the night.’

Best proof of this is the Daniel Bakery, which has become a popular culinary hot spot in Vienna over the past year. In the relaxed design-mix of the loft-style ground floor of the hotel, enjoy more than traditional bakery fare, with the space being curated as a blended shop, restaurant, café, bar and lounge offering international cuisine. Open from 6:30am until 1:00am, the bakery caters to all urbanites, be they early birds or night owls.

Here there’s a crossover of classical furniture and modern design in combination with original self-made furnishings. The Biedermeier couch owned by the Weitzer family that has been refashioned into a Hollywood swing is a favourite, here one could be forgiven for starting early and settling in for the entire day.
