Ruby Sofie Hotel & Bar

Lounge of Ruby Sofie Hotel Vienna

Bathhouse to ballroom in Vienna

Ruby Sofie may be surrounded by peaceful streets and historic architecture, but the city's main sights are a short stroll away.

Originally built as a bathhouse, Ruby Sofie was set for a life of lather, rinse, repeat. Thanks to her excellent acoustics though, she was soon transformed into a beautiful ballroom.

In the cosy bar, the music lives on, in the form of gigs by local bands. Drop by for a cocktail or bring your friends and grab a beer. And when it's time to unwind, each room is a haven of Lean Luxury calm, designed with serious sleep in mind. 

Blending tranquillity with great transport links, Sofie's an eight-minute walk from Wien Mitte station, just across the river from the landmarks of the Ringstrasse.

Concert hall meets vintage

Ruby Sofie began life as the Sofiensäle, a grand 19th-century bathhouse. As soon as her outstanding acoustics were spotted though, singing in the shower quickly turned to concerts and gala balls, with everyone from Johann Strauss to the Kinks gracing her stage. When it comes to design, we’ve taken cues from our leading lady’s past life, mixing vintage furnishings and antique playbills with statement spotlights and a head-turning piano.
