The hotel has an impressive pedigree but the guest experience is far short of extraordinary. Rooms fairly musty, Concierge and Receptionist have permanent expression of consternation/boredom. Bathrooms need updating. All in all, a grand old hotel with terrific history and nice location, but snoozeville. If anything, try for the breakfast included in the room rate. The cafe is nice.

Stunning old world charm. Exceptional service and location. Food was Devine, too Comfortable yet old and slightly tired but it is an old pub! Plenty of amenities. Stand up to its 5 star rating. Champaign for breakfast was a real surprise! Will happily return.

Firstly before we get to the insides of this amazing property, the location is absolutely central and a perfect base for exploring Vienna. on foot. On arrival like most of Starwoods Luxury Collection Palace Hotels the greeting and attentiveness from concierge is first class. The lobby is beautiful with chandeliers and marble to die for. We were upgraded about 5... More

Me and my friend had to pick my husband next day morning in Vienna (we are in Croatia currently) so we decided to go day before and spend a night in this beautiful hotel. We didn't know what to expect, except the things we read on-line. The hotel was MARVELOUS. So beautiful, it cannot be called kitchy or trashy in... More

This is truly one of the best places in Europe and stands comparison with anywhere in the world. Service is flawless, with the punctual efficiency one expects in Austria. Food in the restaurant and cafe (if you can use the term cafe for gilded excellence) are of the highest possible level. Love this place and is a definite "must return"

This hotel is one of a kind. What can you say about a hotel were you can set your clock by the time you request service. Request breakfast to your room at 8.07 am,and you will hear a knock in your door precisely at 8.07am. This hotel was a favorite of the Austrian Imperial family. It was also unfortunately the... More

We stay there some time ago, and after having the privilege to stay in a lot of luxury properties around the world, the Imperial remains as one of the top 5, we had an unconfortable moment when we read part of the hotel history and get the info that we are staying at the same room that once has been...

We truly enjoyed this experience. We stayed here three nights, and we have no major complaints. The staff was very friendly, the rooms and facilities were always tidy, the decorations were beautiful, and the hotel was located very close to everything in town. We would come back here and highly recommend it to anyone in Vienna.

We stayed here 10 years ago and recently returned for a second visit. My only request was we stay at The Imperial again. Loved it all over again! Our two rooms were wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful.

I really wish I could write awe-inspiring reviews about this hotel but it was in fact one of the most disappointing experiences I've had. I've booked this hotel through the Visa Luxury Collection, which would grant me free breakfast, internet access, room upgrade (if available) and late check out. I arrived at the hotel just one day before the re-opening... More
