Deutsche Hospitality continues to expand its footprint with the opening of the new Jaz hotel in Vienna. Located between Mariahilferstraße and the Naschmarkt, the new hotel offers 163 stylish rooms and suites, multi-functional event facilities for creative meetings, a restaurant and bar inspired by the record store aesthetic. The “Rhythms Bar & Kitchen” Restaurant delivers exactly what its title suggests. The focus here is on dishes using local produce which are spiced up with a “jazy” spirit and come with an added mixture of diversity, tolerance and innovation. The “mariatrink Drinks & Views” rooftop bar boasts spectacular vistas out over Vienna and is already a top attraction amongst those in the know.
“Deutsche Hospitality has entered a growth phase, and we are delighted to be able to launch a new hotel under our lifestyle brand in such a crucial location,” said CEO Marcus Bernhardt at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “Vienna is one of Europe’s top destinations in terms of quality of life and tourist services.”
"Since 1995, Vienna-based MTK Group AG successfully develops real estate projects in Europe and the USA. Therefore, it is a matter of the heart for us to realize a project like Jaz in the City Vienna in the middle of Vienna's city centre. The combination of modern interpretation of Viennese architecture with a refreshing hotel concept are an enrichment for this city of diversity," commented Delf Stuven, CEO of MTK Group AG, who attended the opening together with the founder and main shareholder of MTK Group AG, Tilmar Hansen.
“Jaz in the City Vienna is in tune with the times and reflects urban attitudes. It provides inspiration and fires enthusiasm,” explained General Manager Michael Fritz, a.k.a. The Band Leader. “We live for and alongside the local music and cultural scene and give artists a stage. Vienna has a superb club, cultural and restaurant scene, and our new hotel will complement this brilliantly.”
“Deutsche Hospitality is placing its trust in Vienna,” stated Norbert Kettner, the city’s Director of Tourism. “It is investing here and looking to achieve healthy growth. This is a very welcome message which cannot be appreciated highly enough in these tough times. Tourism clearly remains a sector which can harbour legitimate hopes of a prosperous future. One more thing is certain. Vienna will continue to be one of the most attractive cities in the world for leisure and business visitors.”
