We had breakfast several times while we stayed at the hotel. Breakfast Buffet was very well stocked with all the usual foods. Eggs can be made to order!

This is an incredible property in the heart of Vienna. This hotel is indeed imperial in location, history, details, service, architecture. Food is delicious and well presented, deserts are unique (vive la torte!) and the best part is the coffee. We could not have enough. Breakfast was also amazing and geometrically presented. The historical building is art in itself. The... More

Popped by for a taste of the famous cakes in Viennese cuisine. I ate a raspberry crumble pie, and my wife had the sachertorte.

We have tried the Imperial Torte there which was perfect. But the Cafe Melange they served was overpriced and the cup was tiny. Overall, we had a good evening there.

The cafe was filled with tourists and does not have the same ambiance as other cafes in Vienna. Nevertheless, the hotel is beautiful. The Imperial chocolate torte is for real chocolate lovers. It is definitely sweet and extremely filling.
