Ruby Marie Hotel & Bar

Enjoy a touch of luxe in a lovingly restored department store.

Get to know Marie

Ever the trend-setter, Ruby Marie began life as Austria’s first department store. Elegant floors offering everything from haute couture and homeware to a restaurant and a viewing terrace bustled with the city’s chicest and she looked set for a life of luxury.


For several decades, the store thrived as one of Vienna’s top shopping spots and even boasted a cinema for a spell. Sadly, by the turn of the century, with department stores slipping into decline, Marie’s future looked uncertain.


A true pioneer never loses her spark though. In 2015, at the age of 104, Marie made a suitably stylish comeback.

From luxe lamps and plush sofas to vintage posters and tailoring tools, the 24-hour bar recalls the opulence and energy of her 1960s heyday, while the modern menu includes a healthy breakfast and barista coffee, eclectic cocktails and tasty snacks.


Marie’s rooms all reflect our Lean Luxury style, with a big, comfy bed, a rainfall shower and soft, fluffy towels. Warm cherry wood contrasts with edgy artwork, while a tablet and a Marshall amp are on hand for your soundtrack.

 

Marie’s a four-minute walk from Wien-Westbahnhof, which is just 30 minutes from the airport.

Check-in Speedy 60-second self check-in
Breakfast Tuck into locally sourced treats
24/7 bar With delicious drinks and snacks
Location A top spot in the heart of Vienna

24-Hour Bar

From luxe lamps and plush sofas to vintage posters and tailoring tools, the 24-hour bar recalls the opulence and energy of Marie’s 1960s heyday.

It’s an inspiring space where people come together to share tall tales and grand plans, catch an up-and-coming band or just unwind with a skilfully shaken cocktail.

Find an armchair in a cosy nook, grab a table or perch at the bar – our designers have made sure there’s a comfy spot for everyone.

Breakfast

Our healthy, locally sourced breakfast buffet with fresh barista coffee and organic tea will set you up for the day ahead.

Tuck into fresh fruit and superfood cereals, along with wholegrain bread from the local bakery, and a delicious selection of meats and cheeses.

Our favourite is the local speciality, Liptauer. Grab a bagel or a slice of bread and top with lashings of this seriously addictive spicy cream cheese.


Breakfast costs €16 when booking online or €18 on-site.

Rooftop Garden

For a break from the hustle and bustle, head out to the roof terrace. Choose a lounger or a giant beanbag, or settle in at a café table to watch the world go by.

Start your day with yoga or an al fresco breakfast, spend a lazy afternoon basking with a book or kick back with a cocktail on a sunny evening.

Library

Whether you’ve some work to do or a book you can’t put down, the library on the 3rd floor is a quiet haven of calm.

Plug in your gadgets at the table and speed through the to-do list with free superfast WiFi, or curl up in a cosy chair to finish that last chapter.

Forgot to bring a book? You’ll find a few of our favourites to hand. Feel free to have a flick through.

Galley

Fancy a snack or forgotten your soap bag? You’ll find a Maxi Bar on every floor, where you can buy everything from soft drinks and nibbles to an umbrella or a toothbrush.

For quick ironing fixes and free hot drinks, head to the Galley on the 3rd floor. As well as an ironing board and iron, you can help yourself to a cup or two of organic tea.

Movie Lounge

During Ruby Marie’s retail days, her crowning glory was a cinema – one of the first in Vienna, no less. So it seemed only fitting to reinstate a screening room, with décor inspired by the swinging 60s.

With 25 luxurious leather seats, a big screen and surround sound , the movie lounge is a cosy spot to catch a classic. Bring your drink from the bar and grab a snack from the vending machine on your way in, then relax as the lights go down. To see what’s on during your stay, check out the Events page.

The movie lounge can be booked for private events, including product launches and presentations, as well as movie screenings. To find out more, email events@ruby-hotels.com.

Yoga Space

Unwind your mind and body in our dedicated yoga space. This peaceful nook on the ??? floor offers a quiet place to exercise or meditate, morning, noon or night.

Prefer to stretch al fresco? Check our Events page and join us for yoga on the roof terrace..

There’s no need to bring anything – our yoga mats are free to borrow for guests.

Work Space

Need to catch up on some emails or take a quick conference call? Find peace and quiet, along with free superfast WiFi in our 3rd-floor work space.

Set up at the spacious table and power through your to do list, with a little help from free organic tea or a snack bought from the Maxi Bar – both found in the Galley nearby.

Guest Perks

Music’s a big part of life at Marie. That’s why you can hire an electric guitar for an impromptu jam, tune into Ruby Radio in your room and even catch live acts in the bar.

Of course every musician needs a muse, and ours is Vienna. The best way to explore is on two wheels, so rent a Ruby bike and get pedalling.

Sustainability

Since the start, we’ve taken lots of steps to be sustainable. From choosing renewable energy to streamlining systems to reduce paper use, some of it’s behind the scenes.

In your room though, you’ll notice smart lighting and refillable Ruby Care amenity bottles, along with renewable natural materials like wood panelling and flooring. Where possible, we also rescue and restore second-hand furniture to add character and cut our carbon footprint.

We’re lucky enough to have some brilliant local suppliers in our home cities. That means we can keep our food and drink miles down on everything from breakfast treats to beer and wine.

Event Space

Central location: check. Great transport links: check. Gorgeous views and dangerously delicious cocktails: check.

Lean Luxury

Like you, we travel a lot. And wherever we go, we expect three things: a great night’s sleep, a powerful shower and top-notch connections – both to the city and the WiFi.

What we’re less keen on is paying for extras we never use. In dynamic cities bursting with Michelin stars and foodie pop-ups, room service sandwiches just don’t cut the mustard.

So we set out to create the best of both worlds – hotels with style and substance, but none of those expensive extras.

It’s what we call Lean Luxury.

To us, luxury means laid-back comfort in characterful surroundings, right in the heart of the city.

The lean part is all about being smart with space, streamlining things behind the scenes and doing away with the things you don’t need.

This innovative approach saves us and you money, without compromising on comfort.

Mariahilfer Strasse 120 /
Ecke Kaiserstrasse 2-4

As a former department store, Ruby Marie’s mere steps from Vienna’s top shopping street, Mariahilfer Strasse. Lined with international brands and quirky boutiques, it’s a great place for some serious retail therapy.


As well as its impressive array of shops, the 7th district, known as Neubau, is characterised by a lively creative scene. Nearby Spittelberg is a prime example: by day a cluster of quaint cobbled streets dotted with independent shops and galleries, by night the vibrant haunt of students and artists alike.


Vienna’s historic centre, along with sights including St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Hofburg, is a six-minute U-Bahn trip or a short stroll away.


Wien-Westbahnhof is three minutes away on foot, from where the airport’s 30 minutes by train with a quick change en route. 

Parking

Ruby Marie guests get an exclusive discount just across the street from our front door.

 

A 24-hour ticket costs just €25, and you can come and go as much as you like. Simply park your car, get a regular ticket, then ask our hosts at the bar to exchange it for a Ruby parking ticket.

Safe, Sound & Sparkling

We take your safety seriously, so we’re being even more careful than usual with our cleaning. We’ve also made a few other changes, to help keep everyone healthy and happy.

 

  • Spotless bedrooms – every room is deep cleaned and disinfected between guests.
  • Squeaky clean shared spaces  we regularly clean and disinfect public areas throughout the day.
  • Spotlight on surfaces – all touchscreens, handles and buttons are cleaned at least once an hour.
  • Hand sanitiser on tap – you’ll find touch-free dispensers at the bar, at check-in and in the WCs.
  • Brand new key cards – your key card will be freshly made for your stay.
  • Face masks and screens – for extra peace of mind, we’ve put up screens and are wearing face masks.
  • Fewer seats for extra space – sadly, that means no bar stools for now - sorry.
  • Cashless and quick – we can only accept card and contactless payments at the bar.
  • Fresh barista coffee at the bar – you can also pick up free tea or instant coffee in the Galley.
  • Get a taste of the neighbourhood – our favourite local restaurants are now delivering their top dishes.
  • Certified water quality – just the same as always.

For your safety and ours, all of our infection-control measures meet the required safety standard.
