Market overview of serviced apartments in Austria
As in Germany, the serviced apartment market in Austria has proved more crisis-resistant than the classic hotel industry in recent years. The option of contactless check-in is particularly available in modern apartment accommodation. In addition, the standard kitchen(nette) in the apartment and nearby shopping facilities prove to be an ideal combination for self-catering, independent of restaurants and their opening hours. Last but not least, guests on long-term stays benefit from the lower overnight rates compared to hotels.
The range of serviced apartments in Austria is diverse. Tourism is the driving force behind hotel and apartment bookings here. Private travellers take advantage of the magnificent scenery in the mountains for skiing and hiking vacations or visit the Alpine nation's cities worth seeing. This is reflected in shorter average lengths of stay. Serviced apartments are often still owner-operated - especially in the provincial capitals.
With currently more than 20 serviced apartment properties, Vienna is the undisputed leader on our portal compared to the other provincial capitals. Due to the international appeal of the metropolis, the diverse possibilities for business, events and functions, many international chain providers in particular have opened new apartments with service and aparthotels in Vienna in recent years, e. g. Adina Apartment Hotels, Rioca, SMARTments, Visionapartments and Zoku.
The short-term renting and leasing of private flats is not without pitfalls in Austria. Providers of accommodation via Airbnb in Vienna and Salzburg, among other places, must submit their data to the city and register their accommodation to ensure that the local tax is paid correctly. Otherwise, there is a risk of heavy fines. In addition, in Salzburg, apartments may only be offered via Airbnb if they are defined via the so-called spatial structure plan ("Raumordnungsgesetz") - and this does not exist in Salzburg. Subletting is therefore only legal there if the landlord himself lives in the flat and sublets parts of his apartment.
Professionally managed serviced apartments are usually registered as a business and meet all legal requirements.
