Austria: Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere has opened its doors, marking the Andaz brand’s entry into Austria.
Located in the new Quartier Belvedere, the property is the fourth Andaz branded hotel in Europe, joining Andaz London Liverpool Street, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht and the recently opened Andaz Munich Schwabinger Tor.
“We are thrilled to welcome curious travellers to our hotel and to this beautiful city, known for its high quality of life, imperial palaces and exceptional art,” said Gözde Eren, general manager of Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere. “The property offers a new type of luxury accommodation for guests who seek to satiate their curiosity, delivering unforgettable, immersive Austrian experiences that allow you to feel like a local.”
The hotel’s location offers easy access to historical landmarks, including the Belvedere Palace and the Botanical Gardens. Only a short walk away from Vienna’s main train station, guests can create their own unique adventures by exploring the new city district Quartier Belvedere and its peaceful green surroundings.
Architect Renzo Piano and interior designers Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky collaborated on the project, which incorporates the art and design of Austria’s capital city throughout the hotel. They also drew inspiration from Prince Eugene of Savoy, one of the leading developers and art collectors of his time. As a result, Viennese art and a twist on local culture are found throughout the property, from the decorations in each guestroom to the dishes served in the restaurant.
The hotel is comprised of two separate buildings connected by interwoven bridges, sharing a lobby lounge on the ground floor. The hotel offers 303 guest rooms including 44 suites.
