The postcard-perfect Austrian capital of Vienna is a dreamy setting for a romantic, fairy-tale escape, full of high-Baroque palaces and elegant vestiges of the imperial past – not to mention the famous opera and cakes. There’s no better (or more suitable) way to experience this enchanting city than with a stay at Austria Trend Hotel Park Royal Palace, an elegant four-star property that echoes the opulence of the Habsburg’s dynastic reign.
The exquisite golden façade hints at the ultra-luxurious experience within, and this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel delivers with aplomb. Part of the upscale Verkehrsbüro Group, this high-end home base includes two restaurants, a hip bar, a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center, stylish rooms and a stellar location, next to the magnificent Schloss Schönbrunn palace – so you can imagine you’re royalty yourself.
Decked out in Zebrano timber and champagne accents, Deluxe rooms are as chic as the rest of the hotel. You can also look forward to fantastic views over Schloss Schönbrunn, the palace gardens and the hotel park.
The sleek, open-plan Morgenstund restaurant, with its spectacular honeycomb ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows, serves up lavish breakfast buffets with fresh fruit, freshly baked pastries and breads, its own organic homemade muesli and other regional delicacies. For lunch and dinner, Restaurant Regio offers a modern take on classic Austrian cuisine, with a strong focus on seasonal produce. While you’re here, be sure to sample the exquisite Austrian wines. Bar Chino is the perfect cocktail den, with a terrace boasting epic views of the Gustav-Jäger-Park.
Located directly next to the Technisches Museum (Technical Museum) and next to Schloss Schönbrunn, the hotel is the ideal base for sightseeing in the Austrian capital. The Schloss Schönbrunn palace (the largest in Austria), with its exquisite Baroque park, was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1996 and is Vienna’s most visited tourist attraction. It offers a rich peek into Vienna’s history and houses the oldest zoo in the world – keep an eye out for baby panda Fu Bao. Vienna’s other top sights include Stephansplatz and the Gothic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral), Judenplatz, Kärntnerstrasse, Staatsoper and the Hofburg palace houses (including the Hofmusik Kapelle, home of the Vienna Boys’ Choir). There’s also the MuseumsQuartier, a rampant café culture and outlying wine-producing villages, like Stammersdorf, where you’ll find plenty of vineyards and family-run Heurigen (wine taverns).
How to Get There
The hotel is your pretty standard corporate hotel. Rooms are clean, staff are generally polite and efficient, some are even friendly.
For a business event though, there were a couple of hundred people for breakfast and and only one working coffee machine (two were there, one was just for show). This machine seemed to be then moved for to the coffee area for the meetings/conference. I can se how this might save money for them, just became frustrating for guests.
Then the new signs in the bathrooms, apparently not washing towels, now actually saves lives, this is what the sign told me. I am all for the ecological argument of reducing washing, and of course less washing save the hotel money. But stretching it to being life saving is little extreme.
I recently stayed at this hotel for one week. It is located within walking distance to the Schönbrunn Palace, but other than that you'll need a taxi or take public transportation to get to the sights in the first district. Being located outside the city center - it is a little more quiet, but note that the hotel is located on a busy street. However the traffic noise is not bad at all if you keep the windows closed - that hotel invested in quality sound-dampening windows.
The room was comfortable and sizable. I selected the room online based soley upon the photos which seemed to show that the bedding was US-standard - meaning the top comforter hung over the sides of the bed. However much to my dismay, the bedding was European standard - which means there is no flat sheet, only a thick comforter which is only as wide as the matteress (so if you roll over, you get a cool rush of air). There was lots of closet space - greatly appreciated!
The bathroom was modern and spacious - no tub, only a walk-in shower. But it had a built-in shelf for laying out toiletries. The hotel provides min-toileteries, but the shampoos, etc were typical budget-quality, so be sure to bring your own if you're picky like me. Lots of hot water and great water pressure. The glass shower wall leaked but that was no big deal, I just threw a towl on the floor before showering to absorb the water.
Buffet breakfast was included in the rate. They offered hot and cold buffet, fruits, yogurts, breads, juices, etc. Everything to make you feel like you've never left the USA. So if that's what you're looking for, then this is the place. After having traveled all over Austria for 4 years - this was the most English I had heard spoken in a long time. Clearly this hotel is popular with tourists.
Stayed at the property in early August 2018 for 5 days. The property is modern as recently built and offers all modern international facilities you would expect from an international hotel. Was lucky to have a junior suite on the top floor with a large balcony over looking the park and with an opened view to the palace. If I was to return soon, I would definitely book the same room as it was very spacious and tastefully decorated.
Booked here for a 4 night city break to Vienna. I was a little concerned this was off the beaten track, it is a little, but not too far. About 30-40 mins to the Cathedral. The Shronbrun Palace is on the doorstep however, so it’s good for the obligatory day trip here. As is the technology museum.
The hotel is modern, clean and well decorated. We had a 2nd floor ‘business’ suite overlooking the park. Think we might have got an upgrade, anyway, it was fantastic. Spacious, firm comfy beds, quiet and efficient air con, very well soundproofed and a beautiful spacious bathroom. Good sized fridge for storing items and a Nespresso with lots of pods and a kettle. I relaxed and slept well here.
Breakfast was also very good with an excellent selection of food..... particularly the waffles you could make fresh.
My only gripes? The shower was a little underpowered and the curtains were not ‘true’ black-our lined, just a heavy fabric which let some light through. The TV channels were also lacking, no real British TV. BBC World didn’t work and no BBC One like most European hotels I’ve stayed in :-( We also ordered a twin and when we arrived it was made as a double. The staff were very good and changed it immediately though.
A great hotel, would recommend for a city break.
Booked the suite which included breakfast, the room was very large and comfortable and the breakfast excellent , We couldn't fault this hotel.
A number of people have commented on the location being outside the city area . It is about 3 miles from the centre but we found the public transport easy to use and very punctual never having to wait more than 5 minutes for a tram or on the tube. There is a tram stop 50 yards from hotel which will take you to the main station area (Westbanhoff) where you can get the U3 underground to the city in minutes. Alternatively a 200yard walk to the U4 tube will take you direct to the city area..We purchased the Vienna tickets for all public transport on line at home before going - we didn't go for the ones with small discounts for attractions .There are no ticket barriers on the tubes which makes it quick to use . We didn't have our tickets checked once in the time we were there. We enjoyed using the public transport as you get to see some of the outer city areas. In addition to the usual attractions I would recommend visiting the food market at Kettenbruckengasse on the U4 line. All in all Vienna was a wonderful city to visit .
