Hotels in Austria
Hotels in Austria range from five-star ski resorts and luxury city accommodations to minimalist boutique hotels, short-term apartment rentals and budget hostels, satisfying the needs of virtually any traveler. When evaluating Austria hotels, consider what kind of travel experience you’re looking for. Skiers will, of course, feel more comfortable in one of the nation’s many quaint resort towns. Travelers looking for a more cosmopolitan adventure should stick to the slick and modern boutique hotels scattered about the cities.
Some of the best hotels in Austria include the Hotel Sacher Wien in Vienna, a five-star property located near the Vienna State Opera that boasts an on-site spa and health club; the avant-garde Spitz Hotel in Linz, whose ultra-modern design is a nod to Linz’s burgeoning arts scene; the Hotel Zum Dom in Graz, which is located near the historic Graz Cathedral and whose charming suites boast steam showers and whirlpools; the Augarten Hotel Art & Design, also in Graz, a slick and modern building that houses a luxurious spa and health club; and the Spa Hotel Schloss Weikersdorf in Baden, which boasts a full-service spa and offers views of Europe’s largest French-style rose garden, with more than 600 varieties of roses.
The property is made up of a series of homes built in 1515. Cozy rooms have antique-style beds as well as views of the green valley and the distant, snow-covered Alps.

A 1990s-era Sir Terence Conran–designed hideaway at the edge of baroque Karlsplatz, Das Triest is emblematic of the city’s no-frills, economic approach to environmentalism.
