Hyatt’s Andaz brand has made its debut in Austria with the opening of a luxury 303-room property designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano.
Andaz Vienna Am Belverdere is located in the new Quartier Belvedere, a short walk away from Vienna’s main train station and offering easy access to historical landmarks, including the Belvedere Palace and the Botanical Gardens.
The hotel is comprised of two separate buildings connected by interwoven bridges, sharing a spacious lobby lounge on the ground floor. Interior designers Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky collaborated on the project, which incorporates the art and design of Austria’s capital city throughout the hotel.
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.
Each guestroom was also designed with sustainability practices in mind, using less plastic and replacing it with more environmentally friendly materials like leather and paper.
Drinking and dining options include Eugen21, a contemporary Austrian tavern that combines classic and modern cuisine, and Cyclist, an eatery for health-conscious guests that offers sandwiches, salads and hearty dishes perfectly complemented by a variety of specialty coffees.
Inspired by the Northern Lights, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere’s rooftop bar Aurora features a Scandinavian-inspired cocktail menu. Located on the 16th floor, the Nordic designed bar offers stunning views of Vienna which guests can enjoy while snuggling next to the open fire pit or listening to DJs late into the evening.
Event planners can choose from three creative studios, each filled with natural daylight, perfect for small intimate occasions, while a 705sqm ballroom caters for larger groups.
The property marks the second Hyatt branded hotel in Austria and the fourth Andaz property in Europe
