Hotel Lamée, Innere Stadt The Austrian capital does old-world glamour well. It positively swells with historic landmarks, many of which have been converted into hotels. But look beyond, and a new breed of quirkier, more modern hotel is emerging. The latest is the Hotel Lamée, which opens in the city centre this week. Owner Martin Lenikus, with the help of BEHF architects, has taken a 1930s building and transformed it into a design-led beauty, with flirty modern interiors, a two-storey café and a roof garden. Hotel Lamée, Rotenturmstrasse 15, Innere Stadt (00 43 1 532 22 40; hotellamee.com; designhotels.com). Doubles from €188, room only.
