My husband and I stayed here as a special treat. The hotel lives up to its reputation as one of the top hotels in Vienna. Location wise it couldn't be better right behind the opera house handy for many shops and sights without the need for further transport.
It has retained an old world grandeur in many respects but is also kitted out with the necessities of modern life. The rooms are beautifully furnished and all the little extras you would expect are provided. Although there was refurbishment work ongoing on the hotel when we stayed there for which the management apologised, we were not disturbed by any noise in our room or in the public areas of the hotel. Our deal included breakfast served in the marble dining room with a buffet that promised everything you could wish for and a counter where eggs and other cooked food was made to order in the manner you requested.
The staff were friendly and efficient and, although I suspect we did not fall into the category of their usual guests, they never betrayed this. The gentlemen on the door and at the concierge desk were particularly friendly and helpful.
The hotel has many parts to it including a famous cafe (where the famous Sachertorte is served), a bar cafe, a Bar, and a restaurant. It also has leisure facilities which we didn't use.
On checkout we were presented with minature Sachertortes and urged to return. This hotel would not usually fall within our budget but we both felt that it was worth the extra for such as lovely experience.
The hotel is also one of the key locations used in the film "The Third Man" and has a gallery of photos of the famous people who have stayed there over the years.
