We took a family trip this summer with two teenage kids and made this hotel our base in Vienna. Everything was lovely from the breakfasts to the staff. And this is an absolutely gorgeous hotel in a great location. We walked everywhere from here and easily accessed shopping, museums, and restaurants. If we ever return to Vienna we would definitely...

Within perfect walking distance to most of central Vienna, this hotel is perfect location, and absolutely beautiful. If you like quality over anything else then this is the place. I cannot explain how gorgeous the antique furnishings are, also how friendly the staff are, and the extremely good food. Vienna at its best! If there were one thing to be... More

I stayed with my wife for four nights at this great hotel. I can say that this hotel is the best ever in Vienna. Let's start with the location. It is the best location in Vienna because it is in the heart of the historical city and every attraction is a walking distance from it; yet it is not in... More

On the second leg of our Austria - Switzerland trip, I opted for the Hotel Imperial. While pricey, I snagged a deal for the Ringstrasse anniversary, which included a 3rd night at 150 Euro, which I considered quite a bargain for this luxury hotel. I considered this a bucket list hotel due to the beauty and history of it, and... More

I stayed here with my dad for the last leg of our trip. The hotel itself is beautiful, and it makes you feel as if you're walking through a museum. Check in was easy, but they didn't have a double bed room available. We arrived in black pants and sweaters, and felt a little looked down upon for not wearing... More

Beautiful interior and great for short business trips or couples. The room may have been a bit tight in layout but my overall experience was great. Breakfast was delicious as well. The internet may be an issue as it's not that speedy but if you're not there for work than I don't think it will matter. It's location is close... More

Traditional hotel, lovely room, large TV. Could've done with a few more bathroom accessories (personal moan about no toothbrush etc). Chocolates at turn down service. Splendid bar. Shower bit of a problem - old fashioned & impossible to get the temperature right. Massively convenient for everything. Tube stop close by. Really lovely stay & ideal for pre-Xmas weekend.

This place sets the standard for what a luxury hotel should be. This property has unique individual character and old world charm. When picturing this hotel vs. the modern rooms and decor so common in luxury hotels these days... think gold vs. steel, think polished wood vs. plastic, think round vs. sharp edges. This place has heated green marble floors... More

Great location - close to everything but quiet - not a far walk at all. Was there the week between Christmas and New Years and everything about the hotel was wonderful - staff - rooms, restaurants, it was all great. Nothing was disappointing. Everything was stunning - the facilities, decorations, etc. Definitely have a night cap in the hotel bar... More

What a wonderful experience, to stay here over Christmas! The Christmas Eve cocktail and mini concert were a nice surprise! The staff complied with our request for a Christmas tree to be set up in our room (for a fee). The breakfast included in our platinum Starwood status was wonderful! (Just not sure who's idea it was to put the... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
