Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has confirmed plans to open the brand’s fifth property in Europe, Rosewood Vienna, in 2022. The project was first announced in 2017 and had been earmarked to welcome guests in 2021.
Housed in a historic 18th-century building and the former headquarters for Erste Group Bank AG, the luxury hotel will be situated on Petersplatz, one of the most famous squares in Vienna’s Old Town, nearby to the city’s most luxurious shopping and dining and its most famous historical sites.
Rosewood Vienna will combine the best of European architecture and design with a refined yet modern style. The hotel will offer 99 spacious guestrooms and suites, all of which will feature separate spaces for entertainment and relaxation.

The property will feature a variety of dining and entertainment options, including a rooftop bar with city views and a restaurant with a terrace garden serving European cuisine.
Rosewood Vienna will also feature Sense, A Rosewood Spa, which will serve as a private sanctuary for relaxation away from the busy sights and sounds of the city with views to St. Peter’s church.
“Vienna’s rich heritage, sophisticated cultural offerings, and thriving culinary scene make it a natural fit for Rosewood’s European portfolio,” said Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“The city’s unique blend of charm and spectacular architecture provide endless opportunities for guests to lose themselves in the culture and history that make central Europe so special, and we are excited for Rosewood Vienna to serve as a portal through which visitors can authentically experience all that the region has to offer.”
Rosewood Vienna will join the brand’s other European properties including Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, Rosewood London, and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel.
