A vision becomes reality
The history of the Hotel Lucia is characterised by enthusiasm, idealism and family cohesion. From the very beginning, we were very committed to realising our vision of a cosy, comfortable, modern hotel together. For example, we ourselves lent a hand in the renovation of the house we acquired in autumn 1998 and worked many hours every day during the cold months until March 2000 to achieve our goal as quickly as possible. This personal commitment has had a lasting effect on our attitude towards our hotel: The "Lucia" is our joint project, which we still run with much love and heart and soul.
At Hotel Lucia, everything stays in the family: important decisions such as the addition of our side wing to the original Gründerzeit house and the extension of a floor and attic, as well as the harmonious colour concept of our house.
From 14 rooms, we have thus continuously expanded the capacity a little since the opening in 2000, so that today there are 54 comfortable feel-good rooms available. A cosy retreat in Vienna where you can find security, peace and relaxation after stimulating discovery tours.

Enjoy your life
Enjoy yourself! Whatever is important to you in Vienna to enjoy your stay, we will take care of it. It is of great concern to us that you not only feel comfortable at Hotel Lucia, but also like at home. During our numerous travels and hotel stays we have learned what is important, namely: good quality in all areas, a family atmosphere and personal communication with the guests. Values that we now live by day after day.
As career changers in the hotel industry, we have so far succeeded in keeping our distance from the material and always seeing the Hotel Lucia through the eyes of the guest. We currently have a capacity of 54 rooms, and we want to keep it that way. So that we continue to have enough time to commit ourselves to your needs.
