The Fleming's Wien Westbahnhof and its brand new grey façade stand at the heart of the heavy traffic on Neubaugürtel street. The name of this hotel, which opened in 2007, comes from Ignaz Blodinger, the owner of the Fleming's Hotels & Restaurants Group, meeting Ian Fleming. At the time, Blodinger was a taxi driver and Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond stories, was one of his most loyal customers. Like a scene from the film Taxi Driver, they used to chat and discuss the creation of a new breed of hotel with a unique ambience close to the city's attractions. Thus was born the Fleming hotel, a tribute to their friendship. As soon as you set foot inside the place you'll notice the permeating silence that reigns here, thanks to the excellent soundproofing of the windows. The decor in the large entrance hall sets the tone for the rest of the hotel - a contemporary style with black, dark brown, and green being the dominant colours. The hotel also boasts a huge spa that has all the facilities you would expect, as well as no fewer than 11 conference rooms. Meanwhile, the large restaurant, Fleming's Brasserie, and its adjacent bar are easily accessible from the entrance on Neubaugürtel street.
