Everything was perfect from the time the bellman greeted us when we arrived until he loaded our suitcases into the car to the airport 5 days later. Friendly front desk and extremely knowledgeable and helpful concierge. Platinum status was recognized with a suite upgrade. Breakfast was wonderful, especially the Imperial tort.

Orlando Donato is the concierge at a beautiful hotel in Vienna. He is not only an excellent concierge, but also an incredibly patient, kind soul with a huge heart. I was traveling through Europe and once i arrived in Vienna I realized that I left one of my many bags on the euro rail. Frantically, I wandered into the nearest hotel, Hotel Donato. I was just praying that I would find someone who would be nice enough to help me with my situation. Not even being a guest at the hotel, Orlando was willing to call the euro rail for me (I had no phone service nor could I speak the language). Not only did he treat me like a guest, but was willing to take care of the entire process with the euro rail people to locate the bag and make all the arrangements to get it back to me (yes, the bag was found!) Again, I was not even a guest, but he took care of my every need and I could not possibly me more grateful for his kind heart. Quite obviously I would recommend Hotel Imperial to anyone and will be forever grateful for their concierge Orlando Donato.

My husband and I visited Vienna for the first time at the end of August 2013.

We booked the Hotel Imperial for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Our flight from NY landed very early in the morning and we checked into the hotel at around 9:30 A.M. and they had a room ready for us. The room was spotless. The bed was comfortable, as are almost all Starwood beds. We did some sightseeing that morning, came back to the room to rest, and learned that we had no running water. The hotel is undergoing renovations. We went to the front desk on our way back out to do more sightseeing and they advised us the water would be back on in a few hours. We didn't make a big deal of this as we were headed out. However, that evening when we returned to our room, within 5 minutes we had a knock on our door and room service had brought us a nice note from the GM apologizing for the inconvenience earlier in the day and gave us a box of Imperial tortes (chocolates). It was a nice surprise. The fact that they knew we had just returned to our room (with a different shift working the front desk) was also very impressive.

The hotel is also in a great location - about 3 blocks from the Opera House and a 10 minute walk to Hofburg sites.

Great staff, great location, beautiful room. I would highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at the Imperial Hotel. It was our first visit to Vienna. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Excellent location near the Opera House.. We enjoyed the cozy bar and the friendly bartender. Our dinner was delicious. Our room was luxurious and the fresh fruit in the room was a nice touch.

We have been upgraded to the two levels suite on the top floor, The room was gorgeous, with a good view.

Nothing bad to say, just expect old school style and you'll be happy.

We haven't tried the breakfast.

We had chosen the Hotel Imperial in Vienna because of its location. Just a few steps from the entrance to the hotel we had access to Vienna's mass transportation system which would take us virtually anywhere we wanted to go. We were pleasantly surprised at the amazing quality of the hotel itself. Our room could not have been nicer. Luxurious doesn't even begin to describe it. The hotel staff were so helpful with our many requests. Vienna in the holiday season is magical; the Christmas Markets (note it's plural), the music, the overall atmosphere are not to be missed. Dress warmly!

Room Tip: Request a room upgrade.

We are just spending 6 nights in a recently renovated Maisonette Suite at this truly beautiful hotel. Starting with the extremely friendly doorman, everybody we met was very nice and helpful. The only exception is the dark Imperial Cafe, where breakfast is served and where service is just so-so with some quite moody waiters.
The apparently ongoing renovation doesn't disturb. The gym on the sixth floor is small, but very well equipped (newish Technogym equipment). Location is perfect - right in the very center.
Don't forget to buy their famous - and really excellent - Imperial Cake for your friends back home.
