Located right in the heart of the "Quartier Belvedere" (Belvedere District) of Vienna, the new Novotel Wien Hauptbahnhof offers 266 air-conditioned rooms in the new Novotel design.  

On the course of the opening, we did a site inspection of the property, particularly focusing on their MICE concept.

Overall, the Novotel offers 8 meeting rooms, ranging from a congress room with a maximum capacity of 400 persons, up to the so-called “Inspired Meeting Rooms”.

The Novotel brings the concept "Meetings 2.0" very well to the point. Both, meeting rooms as well as breakout rooms focus on openness rather than spatial separation. Open spaces and interactive breakouts with a billiard table invite guests to spend time together and interact with each other. 

The topic "Meetings 2.0" is reflected in the Novotel’s three Inspired Meeting Rooms. Each meeting room is based on a specific theme – water, nature, urbanity – and offers a creative atmosphere, with the aim of promoting dialogue culture and dynamic processes.

Thus, one will not find classical seating arrangements in the Inspired Meeting Rooms. With seat cushions that can be assembled individually, one can easily create their own seat configuration. Besides, the meeting equipment and working-tools are different - instead of flipcharts, one finds a large wall serving as a whiteboard.

Each Inspired Meeting Room has its own Food Concept - in the Insipred by Nature Meeting Room, vegetarian food is served while the Inspired by Urbanity Meeting Room focuses on street food.

With their "Sustainable Carpet Concept", the Novotel also sets standards even when it comes to sustainability. Carpets at the Novotel are made of recycled fishnets - we like!
