Review of Do&Co Hotel in Vienna, Austria.

Do & Co Hotel – You can’t get more modern or central than this glimmering glass-fronted hotel in the heart of Vienna.

Here’s a flashy, very modern hotel smack next to St Stephen’s Cathedral in the center of Vienna’s best shopping, sightseeing, and nightlife district. It’s worth getting a room with a view here as you’ll be gazing right at the cathedral or over the busy shopping streets below. Service is a bit more hands-off than some other hotels so it’s great if you’re in town for nightlife or on more independent adventures. The glass-façade Haas Haus design is an eye-catching departure from the more historical choices in the city.
