Austria: Australian-based apartment hotel operator, Adina, will open its first property in Vienna, scheduled to open for the end of 2020.
The Adina Vienna Belvedere will be located close to the main railway station and Belvedere Palace, and will provide 134 studios and apartments with a minimum size of 28 square metres.
Developer, SIGNA Real Estate, has been appointed for the construction.
Accommodation will be fitted out with a living and working area as well as a kitchen, while still offering hotel service.
Not only will the hotel be one of seven hotels in the city with a swimming pool, but it will also offer a sauna and fitness area, a 24-hour reception, a bar and a small shop.
A terrace on the seventh floor will provide guests with views across Vienna, whereby a connected lounge will be available to rent by business travellers for small meetings or events.
“As a location, Vienna was a logical consequence of our European expansion. The high-end segment of the hotel apartment market in Austria is still relatively untapped. Those who want the home comforts of an apartment without sacrificing the premium service of a hotel have had scarcely any options in Austria to date,” said Matthias Niemeyer, head of development in Europe for Adina.
“The location is particularly attractive to us since the site is establishing itself as a modern commercial centre with large numbers of international visitors requiring high-end accommodation for various lengths of time from a few nights to several weeks,” Niemeyer added.
The new property is one of eight hotels due to be opened by Adina in Europe. The expansion is said to double the company’s number of beds by 2022.
Other upcoming Adina locations include Düsseldorf, Freiburg, Geneva, Cologne, Munich, Stuttgart, and Wiesbadan.
