A short story

Have you ever heard the French word “bassin” before? Or its Italian translation, “bacino”? “Bassena” is the Austrian amalgamation of the two terms, and what it originally referred to was a communal water tap that’s located inside a building and accessible to all residents. In days gone by, it wasn’t just where you’d go to get water; it was also the spot you’d get the latest news. It was a meeting place where people would exchange thoughts and ideas, laugh and hold conversations.

And that’s exactly what this hotel is like.

If you’d like peace and quiet, that’s what you’ll get. If you’re looking for a person to chat to, you’ll find someone. In the kitchen if nowhere else.

We’re delighted you’re here.

We’ll soon be bringing pleasant people and an amazing atmosphere together in a single location. It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from. You’ll find us at the heart of Vienna. On the exhibition centre’s doorstep. With a view of the Giant Ferris Wheel and the Prater public park. This place is one-of-a-kind. You can do anything. But don’t have to do everything. Welcome to the BASSENA.
