Country overview: Austria to gain 66 additional hotels [Infographic]

by | 05 Oct 2021 | Hotel Projects, Pipeline, Projects

The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database highlights that Austria’s well-established hotel market will grow further over the coming years, especially in the capital Vienna.

Austria will see 66 new hotel projects open in the years ahead, increasing its room inventory by 8,565 keys, according to our experts. We take a closer look at these forthcoming properties – and consider which ones should definitely be on your watchlist.

Austria’s hotel openings by year

In what’s left of 2021, 15 more hotels with 1,542 rooms will go live nationwide. This is pretty impressive by anyone’s standards, especially when you consider that only 19 properties and 2,206 keys are expected to launch across the whole of 2022.

For 2023, meanwhile, 15 projects with 2,652 keys are currently on the books. And a further 17 projects with 2,164 rooms have already been mooted for 2024 and beyond.

Of Austria’s 66 new hotels, just under two-thirds (43) are in the four-star category, while the other third (23) are aiming for the five-star segment.

Austria’s fastest growing urban hotel markets

The country’s beautiful capital, Vienna, is home to just over a third of the country’s new hotel projects – 23 properties with 3,821 rooms to be precise.

Elsewhere, Salzburg comes in a very distant second place with just four new properties and 504 rooms on the cards for this vibrant cultural hub. This puts it just ahead of Linz, which is awaiting the arrival of three schemes with 597 keys.

Austrian schemes you need to know about

The first of our highlighted properties will open in the western state of Tirol in by Q2 2022. Set in a popular ski resort, DoubleTree by Hilton Arlberg will offer guests 135 suites, chalets and apartments, while 16 premium private residences are also being planned in a separate area. The latter will be sold as private homes with residence permits and include optional concierge services.

Later that year – Q4 2022 – the 223-unit Citadines Danube City Vienna will begin welcoming visitors. It’s part of the Vienna TwentyTwo urban development project, which will also accommodate the Bassene Vienna TwentyTwo hotel. The whole project extends over an area of around 15,000 sq m and six buildings, encompassing an appealing mix of residential, retail, office and dining spaces.

Finally, the luxurious Six Senses Residences Kitzbühel Alps will go live in early 2023. Inspired by traditional Austrian design and featuring warm wood finishes throughout, the chalet-style property will incorporate 80 exclusive rooms. Guests will be able to refuel at an all-day dining venue serving locally sourced organic fare, enjoy a tipple at the bar or kick back and relax at the stylish spa.

Please note, our data may differ from records held by other organisations.
