Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere
Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere opened on 30 April 2019, 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.
The Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere breaths and lives Viennese culture and a way of life. Vienna has always been known for its art and culture, its imperial history and for being a melting pot of different cultures and languages. This brought forward great collections of art and a high level of craftsmanship, from bespoke shoemakers and tailors to the arts and crafts of the famous
Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky collaborated on the project, which incorporates the art and design of Austria’s capital city throughout the hotel. The brief was to “create a vibrant luxury lifestyle hotel, which is rooted in local art and culture,” which left them with lots of creative freedom with the design.
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 spacious lobby lounge on the ground floor. Integrating exquisite design, irresistible cuisine and spectacular art, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere immerses guests in the history and allure of Vienna.
Design planning started in the spring of 2015, and the physical design finished in the spring of 2019.
The hotel has 303 luxurious urban guestrooms, including 44 suites. Continuing with inspiration from Prince Eugene of Savoy, each guestroom includes creative modern interiors, with an infusion of local and artistic details. The floor-to-ceiling windows in each room ensures that guests can enjoy the stunning views of Quartier Belvedere in the city centre or the nearby Belvedere Palace, historically known as the summer residence of Prince Eugene and is now a popular tourist attraction for art aficionados.
Each guestroom was designed with sustainability practices in mind, using less plastic and replacing it with more environmentally friendly materials like leather and paper.
More public are the eateries; Eugen21, a contemporary Austrian tavern, combines classic and modern cuisine. A variety of past and present traditions provides guests with an insight into how Prince Eugene would live and dine, with a 21st century twist. The cocktail menu perfectly combines an Austrian- European wine list and traditional cocktails and beers with consciously sourced ingredients.
Inspired by the Northern Lights, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere’s rooftop bar, Aurora, features an exceptional Scandinavian-inspired cocktail menu with delicious bar snacks. Located on the 16th floor, the Nordic designed bar offers stunning views of Vienna which guests can enjoy while sitting next to the open fire pit or listening to DJs late into the evening.
Cyclist is the perfect meet-up location for health-conscious guests or locals looking for a relaxing urban space or, for those on the go. The eatery offers sandwiches, salads and hearty dishes perfectly complemented by a variety of specialty coffees such as Viennese Melange, all with the option to carry on your way out of the hotel. Like many touches throughout the hotel, Cyclist focuses on regionalism and sustainability in packaging and products. As such, Cyclist serves a single estate coffee bean specially made for the eatery from the micro-roasting coffee maker Röstwerkstatt.
Global in scale while local in perspective, the Andaz brand of luxury lifestyle hotels weaves the sights, sounds, and tastes of each property’s surroundings for a distinct experience.
