The postcard-perfect Austrian capital of Vienna is a dreamy setting for a romantic, fairy-tale escape, full of high-Baroque palaces and elegant vestiges of the imperial past – not to mention the famous opera and cakes. There's no better (or more suitable) way to experience this enchanting city than with a stay at Austria Trend Hotel Park Royal Palace, an elegant four-star property that echoes the opulence of the Habsburg's dynastic reign.
The exquisite golden façade hints at the ultra-luxurious experience within, and this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel delivers with aplomb. Part of the upscale Verkehrsbüro Group, this high-end home base includes two restaurants, a hip bar, a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center, stylish rooms and a stellar location, next to the magnificent Schloss Schönbrunn palace – so you can imagine you're royalty yourself.
Decked out in Zebrano timber and champagne accents, Deluxe rooms are as chic as the rest of the hotel. You can also look forward to fantastic views over Schloss Schönbrunn, the palace gardens and the hotel park.
The sleek, open-plan Morgenstund restaurant, with its spectacular honeycomb ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows, serves up lavish breakfast buffets with fresh fruit, freshly baked pastries and breads, its own organic homemade muesli and other regional delicacies. For lunch and dinner, Restaurant Regio offers a modern take on classic Austrian cuisine, with a strong focus on seasonal produce. While you're here, be sure to sample the exquisite Austrian wines. Bar Chino is the perfect cocktail den, with a terrace boasting epic views of the Gustav-Jäger-Park.
Located directly next to the Technisches Museum (Technical Museum) and next to Schloss Schönbrunn, the hotel is the ideal base for sightseeing in the Austrian capital. The Schloss Schönbrunn palace (the largest in Austria), with its exquisite Baroque park, was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1996 and is Vienna’s most visited tourist attraction. It offers a rich peek into Vienna's history and houses the oldest zoo in the world – keep an eye out for baby panda Fu Bao. Vienna’s other top sights include Stephansplatz and the Gothic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral), Judenplatz, Kärntnerstrasse, Staatsoper and the Hofburg palace houses (including the Hofmusik Kapelle, home of the Vienna Boys’ Choir). There’s also the MuseumsQuartier, a rampant café culture and outlying wine-producing villages, like Stammersdorf, where you'll find plenty of vineyards and family-run Heurigen (wine taverns).
