Like the city itself, the accommodation in Austria’s capital city is a unique mix of classic and urban. These key features make choosing your hotel reservations in Vienna very interesting.
Vienna is home to many modern properties from an array of independent hoteliers and well-known hotel chains. Hilton Vienna, Pakat Suites Hotel, Fleming’s Hotel Wien-Westbahnof, Best Western Hotel Das Tigra and the soon-to-be-opened Park Hyatt Vienna (slated for 2013), all have a distinct cosmopolitan vibe. Each of these hotels are centrally located to many of the main tourist attractions and make for an excellent base when staying in Vienna.
In addition to the slew of modern properties, Vienna is home to many beautiful and unique historic hotels. Residenz Palais Coburg is a former Count’s residence turned luxury suite hotel. The Grand Hotel Wien has a more diverse past, which is captivating to many travellers. Originally a private residence, it was turned into a hotel shortly after it was built in the late 1800’s. One of Austria’s most famous real-life romantic tragedies took place here: a doomed affair resulting in the death of the Austrian Crown Prince and his lover. Hotel Imperial is one of the most well-known historic hotels as it is now the unofficial hotel for State visits (Kennedy and Krushchev stayed here in 1960). It was built in 1863 for the Duke of Wurttemberg, who sold it a few short years after it was completed. The building was opened as a hotel just in time for the World Exhibition in 1873. Located in central Vienna, each of these hotels will provide you with a glimpse into Vienna’s rich past.
If a hotel does not fit your travel style, not to worry, there are many self-catering apartment options available. Furthermore, Vienna has scores of quality Bed & Breakfasts, Pensions and Hostels to choose from. Your Travel Professional will be able to assist you with booking most of these types of accommodations. If you decide a historic hotel is where you want to stay, make sure to book well in advance. Historic hotels fill-up quickly, especially during the summer months.
