Vienna is the top destination for expats - high living quality and diversity make the city popular
Vienna won some awards as the city with the best quality of life and attracts more and more international experts and executives. A safe environment, modern infrastructure and good health care are attractive for expatriates and turn Vienna into a world metropolis. But where are business travelers, who come for a specific time to Vienna, to be accommodated? Instead of a hotel room, in an exlusive Serviced Apartment, for example.
Vienna is a multifaceted city, which combines opposites - on the one hand a cultural center with numerous museums and imperial palaces, as well as culinary hotspot with the traditional Viennese coffee house culture and local specialities, on the other hand a popular destination for company headquarters of international companies and a desired destination for many business travelers. A vibrant metropolis on the beautiful, blue Danube, which combination of history, culture, style and modernity is unique.
The company Mercer from New York ranked Vienna for the fourth consecutive year as the city with the best living quality. The "Global Liveability Report" from Economist Intelligence Unit Vienna emerged as the second best city in the world from 140 participating cities. On top is Melbourne and on the third place is Vancouver. Factors such as political stability and health to education and recreation have been considered in the ranking. Melbourne, Vienna and Vancouver are therefore chosen as the world's best cities for expats.
Since Vienna attracts more business travelers, the demand for appropriate temporary accommodations increases. A hotel room, which can be very expensive in the long run and also impersonal, doesn't offer a suitable solution for many expats. A popular alternative is a rented serviced apartment - those apartments are fully furnished and equipped with all kitchen utensils, washing machine, bed linen as well as towels, TV and internet access. A serviced apartment allows expats in Vienna an independent lifestyle, but gives you a place to relax too - at the same time they don't have to give up comfort or services.
Moe Mahmoodian, the CEO of viennaresidence | business rental apartments, one of Austria's leading serviced apartments rental agencies, knows about the needs of business travelers: "Our goal is to offer our guests a friendly, service-orientated support during their stay, so that they can relax and feel comfortable when coming home after a long and stressful working day." The most popular residential area is the historic first district, Inner City, who is also the most expensive one. Thus the location is an important decision factor as well as the connection to public transport. So, the districts within the Gürtel are popular amongst business travelers.
And perhaps Vienna may be again soon on top of another ranking: the"European Best Destinations" Voting awards the best European travel destination. The voting ist still going on.
