Perfect location, near all the sites. The ground floor is intimate and is now almost entirely renovated, and I particularly liked the blue bar, the Rote Bar restaurant and the newly reopened Anna Sacher restaurant (redone in a green decor).
Except for a cigar room hidden behind the reception, all the public areas are non smoking, which is progressive for Vienna.
The food is very good and there is plenty of choice. Excellent breakfast buffet (+ separate station for cooked dishes), including Sacher Torte, in the white marble room.
The new spa is nice and has a fitness room, three saunas, two special showers and two relaxation areas.
The rooms are a bit of a lottery. Those on the new three top floors are more modern and comfortable but they lack the charm and sturdiness of the old rooms, and they make you feel as though you are in a different hotel. The old rooms vary in quality but many are in need of renovation. Although the situation is not as bad as at the Bristol or the Imperial, there are new hotels being planned (Shangri-La, renovated Palais Schwarzenberg), so now is the time to bring all the rooms up to date in a gentle way.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The deluxe Hotel Sacher Wien was established in 1876 by Eduard Sacher, son of the creator of the famous Original Sacher-Torte, and is still privately owned by family Gurtler & Winkler. Situated in the pulsative cultural heart of Vienna, directly opposite the state opera and Albertina gallery, the hotel is just moments away from the most impressing sights of the city. High-quality materials, high-tech equipment, imposing original oil-paintings and precious furnishings in all 149 rooms and suites as well as marble bathrooms with floor heating and flat screen TV's which are integrated into the mirrors combine living tradition with a modern spirit. ... more less
