Concierge.com's insider take:
The first Daniel Hotel, launched in the city of Graz in 2005, was such a hit that Vienna's version, opened in 2011 near the Schloss Belvedere, seemed inevitable. Situated in a converted 1960s glass office building, the hotel serves as a pointed contrast to Vienna's baroque grande dame properties. In fact, the 115-room Daniel keeps prices bargain-basement by dispensing with the froufrou. That means you won't find anything resembling a desk, closet, or artwork, or any real sense of place, in the small pared-down (some might say spartan) whitewashed rooms. However, the big beds, open concept bathrooms, and flat-screen TVs may be enough compensation. And most guests, in any case, seem to collect in the very social, multitasking reception-cum-hangout area, which includes a bakery, café, terrace, and a small shop selling an eclectic collection of universal hipster buys: white cotton shirts, leather bags, and the puzzling hammocks that hang in some of the higher priced rooms, as the only concession to whimsy. If you need to escape to a more baroque version of Vienna, there are Vespa scooters for hire.—Raphael Kadushin
