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
We stayed at this hotel for part of our Vienna Bratislava visit. We arrived after a long day travelling and were welcomed by the staff on arrival. At check in we were upgraded to an executive room which was great we had already paid for breakfast however that upgraded us to the executive lounge for breakfast. The room was great very spacious and clean and comfortable. We had a nice top floor view of Vienna and it felt like a great start to our trip. The staff were friendly and the cleaning staff were welcoming greeting us in the morning on the way to breakfast. The food at breakfast was great we were spoilt for choice and everything we tried was of great quality. we also had use of the room mini bar which was included in our stay no extra cost so we took advantage of this of course. Over all I would love to have stayed longer it was close to the Belvedere and the botanical gardens behind the hotel would be beautiful in summer. Would love to come back and stay great hotel experience
A friend and I stayed here for two nights and had a great time. We had an executive room on the 8th floor, with a balcony with amazing views of the city.
The room was large and also included a free mini bar and access to a lounge which had snacks, drinks and deserts in. We were spoiled!
We paid for the breakfast which we loved, a vast array of choice including warm croissants. A real treat.
The location is about 20 mins away from the centre on foot, but there are the lovely gardens next door to enjoy. We hopped in an Uber which took about ten mins to get into the main area. I think for us we’d rather have the peace and quiet than stay bang central!
Beds were comfy, bathroom modern, no noise whatsoever and the sweetest staff.
I cannot complain about anything!
We stayed here for 4 days while taking a city break in Vienna.
Large hotel approx. 10 mins walk from old Vienna - not a problem if you like to walk and take in the sites, as we do. Perfectly safe to walk to in the evenings.
A great base to explore Vienna - Belvedere is 200 yds away, Karlskirch (Church) and nearby fountain monument approx. 5 mins. Definitely recommend this one.
