The mansion built at Schubertring 12 during the Ringstrasse Era suffered damage during WW2 and was completely rebuilt in the 1950s according to plans by Percy Farber and Walter Sobotka. They created a massive reinforced concrete building, with a sandstone and black granite façade and red marble vestibule.
After Hotel Daniel Vienna, this transformation from an office building to a hotel is the second collaboration between Weitzer Hotels and Atelier Heiss Architekten. Completely redesigned, the Grand Ferdinand returns the building on the Ringstrasse back to its former, well deserved glory. Florian Weitzer draws on the Ringstrasse‘s heyday to revive Viennese elegance, i.e. cleverly combining historical relevance with the finest contemporary amenities.
Vienna’s culinary scene is enriched with two restaurants on the ground floor, as well as a third, more exclusive rooftop reserved for hotel guests and their visitors. The Grand Etage benefits from its elevated position by offering spectacular views of St. Stephen‘s Cathedral and the Ringstrasse.
