My wife and I decided to splurge and spend the extra money to stay in this classy hotel based on the reports from TripAdvisor. They were correct reports as most gave it 5 stars. This hotel is truly unbelievable. Old, timeless, world class, and just about the finest older hotel on the planet. So well kept and so elegant in... More

One of the most exquisite hotels we’ve stayed in europe, our suite was absolutely beautiful and so elegantly furnished. From marbled bathrooms with crystal chandeliers to refined opulence in the salon and sumptuously comfortable king bed our room opened up to an impressive view of the city. The hotel is located within walking distance to the opera house as well... More

We recently visited Vienna. We are a family of four with a teenage son and daughter. We have made several trips to Europe with our kids. Our expectations for this trip were surpassed primarily because of the service we experienced at this lovely hotel. Almost daily we enjoyed either breakfast, dinner or dessert at the cafe. There we were always... More

We were meet at the airport by the Hotel Chauffeur and made very welcome by the reception staff and our room No 206 was fantastic, very large with a bathroom almost the size of some hotel rooms. Breakfast was good with a wide selection. Location could not have been better we could walk to all the attractions. Would be the... More

This is an incredible property in the heart of Vienna. This hotel is indeed imperial in location, history, details, service, architecture and rooms. We moved from another sister property and the hotel handled the moving of our luggage. Front desk people were germanly kind. They were exact and courteous and proper. The room upgrade was amazing. A suite fit for... More

Our stay was enjoyable at the Imperial... The rooms were nice, clean, and fresh ... we thought that a facelift would be good ... The breakfast at the restaurant was excellent , especially outside on the small terrace on the street... the lobby was fantastic indeed.. there was also a small shop selling the Imperial Torte (we prefer the Sacher...

The iconic lobby is closed for renovation, and upon check in we were advised that it's been clearly stated on their website for a year. You have to dig very deep on the website to see the minimal statement. Don't stay here until it's completed (they say by the end of June, but their candor is lacking). The rest of... More

Definitely an elegant designed hotel. No doubt. On the other hand, in year 2014, in the heart of Europe, one expects an internet connection which at least can open up google pages to check mails and at least faster than the connection in Sudan. Plus, as you come in to the room after your flight, a complimentary water will do... More

I have stayed at the Imperial Hotel many times. It is a large old fashioned hotel with beautiful interiors. I always have a suite, not a room. The beds and the sitting rooms are comfortable. The Imperial is wonderful hotel for meeting people. There is a very grand reception area which is nice for greeting ones friends. The staff are... More

Our stay at the Imperial was a wonderful experience. Four nights of luxury. Bulgari in the bathrooms. Fresh fruit and orchids in the sitting area. We were treated like royalty. Mr. Moser was especially wonderful. His genuine friendliness was refreshing. The property is like a palace. Mr. Moser booked a trip for us on the Danube to Melk Abbey. The... More
