Vienna’s first district is simultaneously the city’s historic birthplace and one of its most modern neighbourhoods. St Peter’s Cathedral is among the many attractions found in the heart of the city centre. It’s hard to appreciate its stunning beauty until you’re standing right in front of it – or when one of the neighbouring buildings offers an unobstructed view. Like the bathroom of one of the suites at Rosewood Vienna, which opened right next door in early August 2022. The venerable neoclassical building dating back to the 1830s was once the headquarters of Erste Group Bank AG. And one of the city’s most famous residents, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, lived here for a period of time. Located at Petersplatz 7, this hotel provides their guests with every conceivable comfort. The four storeys of the building are home to 99 sophisticated rooms and suites. The hotel offers 100 wall-mounted TOTO RP toilets, 17 WASHLET RW and 10 NEOREST WASHLET EW 2.0 models, bringing Japanese perfection to the most intimate spaces. In addition to luxurious overnight accommodations, the hotel offers publicly accessible spots like a brasserie and a bar with a rooftop terrace on the sixth floor.

Vintage-inspired glamour, maximum comfort

English designer Alexander Waterworth designed the hotel’s interior. He combined cosy colonial-style elements with the imperial glamour of Vienna’s past. Strong materials like marble, wood and brass complement exclusive patterned fabrics. The furnishings, fixtures and many artworks were crafted by hand for the rooms. “We are committed to honouring the venerable sensibilities of Vienna’s spirit while creating a modern ambience and providing top-class amenities,” says Alexander Lahmer, Managing Director Rosewood Vienna, explaining Austria’s capital influenced the interior design.

Rooms of all categories have luxurious bathrooms with marble floors, graceful washbasins and elegant brass fixtures – creating a warm, cosy feeling for this retreat within each hotel room. Freestanding bathtubs are expected in this type of setting, but the exclusive nature of the furnishings, fixtures and toilets is especially visible in the details.

The best of them all: Japanese perfection meets Viennese style

Rosewood Vienna is home to over 100 products from the Japanese manufacturers of innovative sanitary ceramics. Each one conveys an elevated feeling of wellness. The toilets and high-tech TOTO WASHLET™ models offer a series of comfort features that align with the sophisticated ambience of the hotel as well as the guests’ high standards. They also make the work easier for hotel staff, helping them maintain the highest possible standards of hygiene with relatively little effort.


Among TOTO’s top-tier WASHLET™ models is NEOREST EW 2.0, and 10 of these are installed in the most exclusive rooms throughout Rosewood Vienna. In addition to the features found in all WASHLET toilets, this one also    offers a sensor-based lid, automatic flush and nightlight.
Everything comes full circle, even in the most private rooms of the hotel: The elegant, graceful design of TOTO products beautifully complements the vintage-inspired ambience. At the same time, the toilets and WASHLET models deliver a uniquely Japanese wellness experience in Vienna.

TOTO solutions at a glance

TOTO’s most important toilet hygiene features:
