One may question paying around euros 550 per night for a hotel B&B tariff. If one can reasonably afford it please allow me to inform you that the Hotel Sacher in Vienna is worth every single shekel. Wonderful value for money. Have we stayed in more opulent rooms elsewhere? Yes. Have we slept better anywhere else. Oh no. Have we had even better service elsewhere? Yes, but only just. Have we had a better location in an inner city hotel? Definitely not.
Where to start? Very efficient limousine service to/from the airport. Wonderful welcome on arrival. Brilliant location with a ten minute stroll to the Hofburg Palace, Spanish Riding School and the pedestrian shopping centre around the corner. Did I mention the Opera House is literally across the road?
The room (double luxe) was just great. Original Sacher Torte (to die for chocolate cake) and fresh fruit constantly restocked during our five night stay. Brilliant bed. All furnishings immaculate. Wierd lip on the bath but the bathroom was lovely. We slept like stones.
We frequented all of the restaurants, bars and cafes in the hotel complex. All brilliant. As a resident one of the concierge team will walk you to the Sacher Cafe so you miss the queues. they even have a smokers cafe next to the main cafe.
All of the main hotel reception rooms downstairs are quite small, and cosy and intinmate and beautifully adorned and furnished.
The Sacher Hotel food? Superb, from the all you could possibly desire breakfast, inclusive of as much champagne as you wish to consume, through to the local dishes in the cafes and restaurants served throughout the day and into the evening. 24/7 Room service of course.
But it's not the location or the rooms or the facilities that make the Hotel Sacher exceptional. It's the ambience created by the staff and the staff themselves that make a stay there so memorable. Nothing is too much trouble. Everything is done with a warm smile, almost affection. It really does feel like a home from home. The Concierge team are just wonderful.
Five nights at the Sacher and we were completely and utterly refreshed, revived and ready to face reality again. A serious battery recharging place to stay.
