Hotel's Favorite
It’s always wonderful to be in Wein, it’s my 3rd time in Austria and this time I stayed in Palais Hansen Kempinski, it was a fabulous experience. I selected this hotel because of its location being few steps away from the metro station which connects you to all parts of the city and beyond. My check-in experience was great, the lady who checked me in was very helpful along with the concierge guys too. Towards the end of my stay I had to get my PCR test done, although the hotel provided me with a kit to get it done in my room, I preferred to do it the normal way, the people working at the reception guided me and helped me getting it done on time with no extra effort. I was assigned to room 278 and it was a very nice room, quite specious the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was really nice with rain shower. During my stay I also had delicious breakfast at the lobby resturant an open buffet with great variety of breakfast items. The SPA facility was nice too, I couldn’t get any treatment done due to its odd timing but had the pleasure of the sauna which was amazing. One of my friends visited my and I met him in the lovely and specious lobby area and the people working there were very hospitable, we both enjoyed the gathering. Finally my check-out experience was as good as my check-in experience even better and super quick. Keep up the great work guys, this hotel is going to be my favourite place to stay whenever I’m in Vienna and I shall certainly recommend it to my network 😃

Palais Hansen Kempinski is flawless, pure and simple. We booked through Amex Platinum Travel and everything was perfection, from the start. We stayed for 5 nights, were upgraded to a Grand Deluxe room, a very spacious and quiet location of the hotel. Everything just works - beautiful decor, fabulous shower, great bathroom, perfect Ferragamo toiletries, excellent linens, unparalleled service with a smile from EVERYONE, and fabulous food, from breakfast to Edvard, the Michelin starred restaurant. The gym was great; we didn't swim in the pool (no time, Wien has so much to see and do), but I did use the business center for super confidential online meetings and no one else was in there - they opened it just for me. Thomas, the Clef d'Or concierge is great - he will figure out anything you might need. Such cheerful bell staff as well, and everyone so knowledgeable about Wien. What a joy. I wish I had the 6 million euro so I could buy one of the apartments on the top floor, but alas, the wonderful rates we got through Amex FHR program made up for it. I would NEVER EVER STAY ANYWHERE ELSE - Palais Hansen Kempinski is THE best hotel in Wien, bar none!

We had the most fantastic Goose (Gansl) lunch delivered to our home by the Kempinski. All the restaurants may be closed in Vienna, but this was a 5-star experience in our own home. A real treat during a strange year. The Goose was magnificently cooked, while the sides were fantastic. We also had some mulled wine. It was so good, that we are going to order in some Xmas food too. I highly recommend it. Treat yourself.

My husband and I stayed here for a 6 day city break booked with BA from 01/12 to 06/12. We opted for a deluxe room with breakfast included & had a great stay. The room was large (were allocated a corner room) & had a massive bed with the usual separate duvets (a great idea for those who normally suffer with duvet hoggers!), sofa, coffee table & corner desk with chair. Nespresso coffee machine was good for a quick drink before going down for breakfast. The lights etc are controlled by the switchs on the wall. Loved the mini tablet by the side of the bed for ordering eye masks etc. The bathroom was a decent size with underfloor heating & lots of counter space. The bath & shower are both controlled by the touch of a button, so much nicer than struggling to find that balance between either freezing or scalding. Breakfast was great & enjoyed being able to order a la carte as well as buffet items. There was the usual offerings available such as yoghurts, cereals, pastries & hot items cooked to order as well. Champagne available every morning too if so inclined. The location of the hotel is great, a 15-20 minute walk into the main shopping area & the nearest underground a short walk away (turn right outside of hotel entrance & keep walking straight down the road towards the river). It was also walking distance to one of the main Christmas Markets. Loved the staff here from housekeeping to the front desk, nothing was too much trouble. Try the cocktails in the lobby bar of an evening as well - best Mai Tai so far. The only slight downside was the OPEC conference was on when we stayed so sometimes breakfast was busier than normal & on occasion the delegates took up all the seating in the lobby during the day so no afternoon tea for us. Would love to come back for another visit!

I was there on business in one of my favourite cities in the world. This was my first time at a Kempinski and it was a lovely experience. The location was convenient to everything. I did not have a chance to try any of the amenities or the dining in the hotel but from what I saw it was as it should be from a luxury hotel of this calibre. I appreciated the fact that the bathroom were spacious and had a separate shower and bathtub. Thank you.
