A short walk from magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of Austria’s emperors and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this grand hotel dates from 1823, and it served as a residence for guests visiting Emperor Joseph throughout his reign. The exterior is modeled on a Baroque palace, and the public areas feature chandeliers, original Habsburg family portraits, dark wood furniture and polished marble checkerboard floors. The guestrooms are classically styled but in a modern neutral color scheme, and they feature free WiFi, pillow menus and flat-screen TVs. Most offer a view of the hotel’s courtyard or the palace gardens. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in an imposing dining room with parquet floors and chandeliers, and the Schlosscafé serves traditional Viennese coffee and pastries, either inside or on the terrace. Don’t miss a nightcap at the Gloriette Bar, named for the famous pavilion in the Schönbrunn Palace gardens.
In the Area
Classic Pass tickets to Schönbrunn Palace include access to state rooms, the Gloriette and the garden maze. In downtown Vienna there are more than two dozen castles and 150 palaces to explore. But the city blends the old with the new, and Baroque buildings, Art Nouveau train stations and modern glass and steel structures stand contentedly side by side. The best way to get around is on two wheels; City Bikes can be picked up and dropped off at various locations. Head for the Freihausviertel area for hip galleries, boutiques and cafés. Take a trip to the top of the 450-foot spire of St. Stephen’s Cathedral for impressive views of the city. And stop for a coffee at Café Landtmann; it’s been a Viennese institution since 1873 and has been frequented by everyone from Freud and Mahler to Marlene Dietrich.
How to Get There
We chose this hotel because it was so close to the Zoo and the Schönbrunn palace. The Hietzing subway station is just 5 minutes away (on foot).
Overall, it's a great hotel, the rooms are spacious (we had an executive room, 40 square meters), clean and comfortable. It was the first time we had a bathroom without a toilet (the toilet is separate, just next to the room's door), we were a bit confused at first, but we got over it pretty quickly. The paint on the doors could use some refreshing every now and then, as it is chipped here and there and, in my opinion, this is not fit for a 4 star hotel. Just my 2 cents here :-)
The hotel staff were very nice and polite, and so were the waiters from the restaurant and the cafe. Thumbs up, nice people!
We would definitely go back there and we would definitely recommend it to other people.
We have our birthdays and wedding anniversary within several days of each other and decided we’d like to have a city break in Vienna. We secured a great deal on the Austria Trend Parkhotel Schoenbrunn and we were not disappointed. The hotel is fabulous. We enjoyed a beautiful room, a very large room with sofa, chairs and a balcony view towards the park.
The room was comfortable, clean and amazing really. The staff in the hotel were courteous, friendly and extremely helpful.
The location is great with access to the underground only 100m away and 15mins journey time to the heart of Vienna.
The Schoenbrunn Park is just across the road and absolutely beautiful. It’s large with extensive paths in all directions and well worth a walk. A visit to the palace is a must with majestic views and photo opportunities.
The hotel is in our opinion highly recommended for any stay in Vienna
I am staying in the hotel for the week for a conference. The hotel is wonderful with a very cozy atmosphere, very friendly and professional staff. The rooms are exceptional with high ceilings AC, coffee service. Huge bathroom and shower and separate old fashioned tub, separate room for the toilet,
The bed was very comfortable and large. The hotel is beside the Schoenbrunn Palace. The U4 train station is a 100 meters. The food in the hotel wonderful.
We visited this hotel from 1st to 3rd Oct, 2018. The hotel is ideally located and is right in front of the Schoenbrunn Palace with lots of greenery. We were greeted by a very hospitable male receptionist (forgot his name) The room was very nice has a spectacular view from its balcony. Has very spacious bathroom and dressing room. Overall a great hotel.
Nice Cozy Hotel in a quite neighborhood-the rooms are good- the breakfast -try the Schnitzel-the are a couple of Restaurants and Pubs which give a feeling of old world Austrian Charm-close to the Underground route so makes travel easy- but the best thing- the Schoerbrunn Palace!!
