Named for Prince Eugène of Savoy, an 18th-century general, the Austria Trend Hotel Savoyen once served as the Austrian State Printing House and combines an ornate façade and breathtaking frescoes with a modern interior. Baroque pillars flank the entrance, which leads through to a lounge, ballroom and bar, and the 309 guestrooms wrap around a lofty atrium that spans four floors.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are tastefully simple in cream and red with dark wood accents. Kingsize beds are topped with plant motif throws inspired by the neighboring botanical gardens, and colorblock walls are done in warm tones. Bathrooms are classically kitted out with beige tiles, and most come with bathtubs as well as showers. The 43 suites have retained the building’s high ceilings and are spaciously laid out; they also offer streetside skyline views. Suites come with Chopard toiletries and include access to the Executive Lounge for free breakfast and all-day drinks and snacks.
The hotel is right next door to the Belvedere Gardens, originally a summer palace for Prince Eugène of Savoy, and, fittingly, the Eugenio restaurant overlooks the manicured grounds. Head here for haute cuisine, top-notch pasta and views of Vienna’s fairy-tale skyline. The more laid-back Prinz von Savoyen restaurant serves Austrian pastries at breakfast and hearty lunch dishes (shoulder of venison with sliced pretzel dumplings, cod and saffron risotto with mustard pickles). The small fitness area is well equipped; there are also a sauna and steam bath, and a masseuse is available on request.
In the Area
With some 20 embassies and consulates in the neighborhood, this classy district is dubbed the Diplomat Quarter. On the edge of the old town, it harbors the Schloss Belvedere, with its fine art museum and beautiful public grounds. Right up the street, hit the 450-year-old Salm Bräu for a dose of hearty beef goulash or wiener schnitzel. Head to the Wien Museum for the skinny on Vienna’s secret history, and break for a coffee at the hipster-friendly Kunsthalle Café on Karlsplatz. The Vienna State Opera is a must, as is the Museumsquartier, the go-to complex for contemporary art and old masters; it’s also home to quirky shops, nightclubs and a kids museum.
How to Get There
Very well appointed and modern hotel, as short 20 min walk from old town Vienna. Very comfortable beds in large rooms. Breakfast selection, not as good as other hotels we stayed in on our European trip.
What a wonderful place to stay in Vienna. Easy to walk to the Belvedere Palace, I jogged around the palace and gardens every morning. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, great selection of high quality foods. The staff was very welcoming. The rooms were very well appointed and the one minor issue we had with lighting was quickly resolved.
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Savoyen... went with my husband and children, age 17&19
We had the most wonderful time here. I asked in advance for a complimentary upgrade and some Prosecco in our room as this visit was part of my husbands 50th birthday surprise.
They upgraded both our rooms to the executive rooms and had Prosecco and pastries in both rooms. Was such a

Austria trend savoyen offers good stay . The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The bathroom size is good with all amenities.
The breakfast can be better. The hotel was quite busy during our stay as there were parties and events on all three days of our stay. The reception stag is very helpful.
