Our Philosophy

Vienna tradition and modern cool

Why We Are Called Schani

"Schani" is not just a traditional nickname for someone called Johann, taken from the French Jean, but also an old Viennese word which can most easily be translated to »waiter« or »service personnel«. However, the term expresses a lot more than that: warmth, Viennese charm, and hospitality – everything the Schani Hotels stand for.

These Benefits Are No Trifle

Hosts with passion

The role of host lies deep in the Vienna blood of the Komarek family: its third generation currently runs the environmentally friendly Umwelthotel Gallitzinberg on the idyllic Wilhelminenberg in Vienna’s 16th District, a hotel which originally opened in 1929. Once a well-loved watering hole for day trippers, today it is considered as being a pioneering sustainability project because it was one of the first hotels with recognised environmental status from the City of Vienna. In July 2023, the hotel became part of the Schani family and reopened as Bio-Hotel Schani Wienblick.


This successful hotelier tradition, full of ideas and the spirit of innovation, spurred the family’s youngest son, Benedikt Komarek, to set up his own future-oriented concept and the Schani Hotels.

Research Institute As Partner

A hotel full of fulfilled guest wishes

Hotel Schani Wien is the first hotel to be conceived and constructed in partnership with Germany’s Fraunhofer IAO institute – and you notice it. We were able to use the results of the FutureHotel guest study even before we began building so that we could include many of the wishes expressed in the research into our hotel concept. One example of a clear request made by survey respondents was the optimisation of booking processes. We have also been able to develop and provide individual room selection, mobile check-in and check-out and smartphone room keys for our guests. Additionally, we have created and introduced other new concepts that were not in the original study on a collaborative basis with the institute and will continue to do this – so we can react quickly to future trends.
