    Great news!

    Vienna has been one of the most underrated and underpriced luxury hotel destinations in Europe. While guests pay an average USD 396 (EUR 300) per head and room for a luxury hotel in Vienna, they need to pony up 25 percent more in Italy and Switzerland, and three times as much in Paris.

    Experts predict that Vienna’s great value for money in the luxury hotel segment will soon be eroded, due to good demand and so many new luxury hotel projects in the next 3 years (7, including Ritz Carlton).

    Conclusion: Better to book a luxury week end in Vienna soon!
