5 good reasons.

If you have the feeling that we are different: you are right! On the one hand we are a "normal" hotel but on the other hand there is more to it than you think:the magdas Hotel is Austria's first hotel run as a social business - and we are proud of it! :)

Our business are the people

Operated by 12 apprentices with a refugee background and 25 professionals of the hotel industry, the magdas HOTEL is a meeting place of 11 nations, more than 20 spoken languages, different cultural backgrounds, touching life stories, funny anecdotes, international guests, neighbours, city strollers and a big portion of heartiness.

Change the world while you sleep

By booking at magdas HOTEL you support our idea of a Social Business. And as you are slumbering in one of our rooms, you help showing that our concept is working.

In the green area. In the city center

Birdsongs next to saloons.

Located between the green Prater and the Danube Canal, the magdas HOTEL is surrounded by greenery and at the same time at the pulse of the city.

International Breakfast Buffet

The most important thing in the morning! No matter what kind of breakfast you like, everyone will find something at our buffet. When the sun is shining, you can enjoy the breakfast in our garden and on Sundays and public holidays we offer a late riser version until 2 pm!


Upcycling is the key word here: this is another special feature that arose out of necessity due to a small budget when renovating magdas.

Architect Daniel Büchel did a superb job with individual design elements and color concepts and equipped the rooms with recycled furniture including hand-knitted lampshades, vintage armchairs, and wardrobes that could previously be found in the compartments of the Austrian Federal Railway trains.
