Cuisine and hospitality often go hand in hand. Especially these days, come and demonstrate the recent launch of the Laqua group by chef Cannavacciuolo. This time, however, we move to Austria, and more precisely to Vienna, where the well-known restorer of Styrian origins Bernd Schlacher opened the new hotel Motto a few days ago: a structure that combines the Renaissance and Baroque styles with the geometric lines of Art Deco and a touch of industrial mood. The hotel boasts a total of 83 rooms and eight suites, to which is added the Chez Bernard – Restaurant et Bar with its eclectic cuisine, as well as a rooftop garden with bar and the Motto Brot boulangerie and pastry shop on the ground floor.
“The Motto hotel is a visual history rooted in the territory – explains the same Bernd Schlacher – My goal was to bring together traditional Viennese architecture with the glamor of 1920s Paris. All enriched with some personalized design touches inspired by Scandinavian comfort and Japanese Wabi Sabi culture ”. The structure is housed in a historic building, which for over three centuries has served as a hotel, since the first inn The Golden Cross was inaugurated there in 1665. This became in 1872 the Kummer hotel, meeting point for the artists, painters, sculptors, writers, actors and musicians of the city. Among other things, he was born in this palace in 1827 Josef Strauss, son of Johann Strauss.
The Motto hotel is part of the homonymous group founded by Bernd Schlacher, which also includes a well-known pub and the two-story Motto am Fluss restaurant and café located on the Donau.
