“Exceptional Luxury and Amazing Service”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We had an exceptional hotel experience at the Hotel Sacher in Vienna. Our room overlooked the opera house and it was gorgeous. It was spacious and beautifully decorated with gorgeous moldings, hardwood floors, a lovely marble bathroom and very comfortable bed with wonderful sheets and pillows. The hotel is wonderfully located on the edge of the pedestrian district and we were able to walk everywhere. The concierges recommended fabulous restaurants for both lunch and dinner, including a couple of delicious casual outdoor cafes for lunch and fabulous high-end restaurants with great food for dinner. The thing that really topped it off for us was the extraordinary service. The night before we left, I told the hotel know that we had to leave by 4am the following morning to catch our international flight. When we got downstairs to the lobby at 3:45am that morning to catch our taxi, the staff had a beautifully-set tea tray ready for us with fabulous hot coffee and warm croissants. It was the perfect start to our long day! I have stayed in many wonderful hotels but this is one of my favorite hotels ever.

Room Tip: It is worth spending a little more to have a larger room. It is lovely to overlook the opera house.

This establishment has a 150 years of tradition. It shows photos of famous guests in the ground floor. The service is first class and my room was fantastic. A blend of old style, high ceiling and modern luxory. The hotel has a perfect location for tourists and business people. There is a wide choice of restaurants and the famous caffee.

When in Vienna, we can't wait to go back to the Sacher Hotel ! Probably one of the places we like best to stay, if we had to chose a Hotel in the world ! And God knows we have travelled !
Everything is PERFECT ! Think of anything you might want, or need : it is there !
The rooms and suites have been entirely redone, very soft tones, absolute comfort ! The staff are the best I know ! The concierges can get you any ticket for any show, concert, opera - within hours...! They are fantastic ! The breakfast...ah! the breakfast ! A total dream ! Think of something you like : there it is, and not to talk about the Hall in which it served...! Perfect room service, excellent food, best location (right opposite the Opera !), don't even think of going to another hotel...why would you ?

Room Tip: Suite 224 is large, quiet, has a nice view overlooking the Albertina, and has HUGE wardrobes to fit...

After several trips to Vienna this year I decided to take a flat and spend a month and a half over the Christmas season.
This city is a true wonder of old world environment, beauty and extraordinary museums and sights. The quality of opera, ballet and music is of the best in the world as there is no mediocrity. My flat is situated in the belvedere are, some ten minutes from the Sacher where I go daily, either for a cub sandwich at the blue bar hall with my dog, or at the café for tea and several times a week at the Rotbar after concerts or opera.
The overall service is perfect all speak at least English as a second language. The service at the Stubli and café is extremely patient as unfortunately, as many things in our world today, so much has become a status symbol and the Sacher tort has taken that route. Waitresses need to take photos of guests bringing their forks to their mouths in the most grotesque poses one can imagine, they do it with such patience and good humour that you do not know how they can take it all day long. Most of these “cake guests” are not too demanding but many are as this seems to be a pivotal part of their visit, taking a picture home with a fork of tort to their mouths” It is incredible how patient the staff is.
Any one that disparages this hotel needs serious examination. I find it to be one of the best quality palaces I know with a high emphasis on luxury and service.

From the moment you walk through the entrance which leads into an open and grand front concierge desk / area this Hotel captures you.
Everything about this Hotel was as I hoped for in Wien.

From the main Lobby which is not only great for a drink and something light to eat, it also showcases the history aswell. Walls around the main floor of the Hotel full of picture frames of famous guests which gives it such a unique feel and experience for the guests.

The Room was very generous on size and well appointed (try to get a room overlooking the Main Street if you can) . The Bathroom area was huge and with heated floors!

The service provided whether it be Concierge, Restaurant & Bar or Front Desk was simply outstanding at all times. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always happy to help as much as possible.

This Hotel needs to be a must stay for anyone going to Wien. The high level of standards along with its visible history and layout makes this a stunning Hotel.

This jewel box of a hotel is elegant, but unpretentious, warm and seemingly caring about its guests. The service was superb and the food excellent. But at thousands of Euros per night, it is in rare company, and should reflect the highest standards in its dealings with its guests. When I expressed dismay over what I believe were overcharges, the manager was haughty and arrogant, characteristics making him temperamentally unsuited to dealing with guests. In today's world, one has choices at virtually every price point, but at each one, highest or lowest, the guest is entitled to a level of respect befitting his/her status as the lifeblood of every hotel.

Stayed last summer for 9 days. Should be an example of what an excellent hotel should be. Everyone was better than great to make feel like at home. Restaurant service excellent. Breakfast superb, should be an example to nyc restaurants over priced with poor service and even worst food. Second stay and dreaming to back soon.
