A short walk from magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of Austria’s emperors and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this grand hotel dates from 1823, and it served as a residence for guests visiting Emperor Joseph throughout his reign. The exterior is modeled on a Baroque palace, and the public areas feature chandeliers, original Habsburg family portraits, dark wood furniture and polished marble checkerboard floors. The guestrooms are classically styled but in a modern neutral color scheme, and they feature free WiFi, pillow menus and flat-screen TVs. Most offer a view of the hotel’s courtyard or the palace gardens. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in an imposing dining room with parquet floors and chandeliers, and the Schlosscafé serves traditional Viennese coffee and pastries, either inside or on the terrace. Don’t miss a nightcap at the Gloriette Bar, named for the famous pavilion in the Schönbrunn Palace gardens.
In the Area
Classic Pass tickets to Schönbrunn Palace include access to state rooms, the Gloriette and the garden maze. In downtown Vienna there are more than two dozen castles and 150 palaces to explore. But the city blends the old with the new, and Baroque buildings, Art Nouveau train stations and modern glass and steel structures stand contentedly side by side. The best way to get around is on two wheels; City Bikes can be picked up and dropped off at various locations. Head for the Freihausviertel area for hip galleries, boutiques and cafés. Take a trip to the top of the 450-foot spire of St. Stephen’s Cathedral for impressive views of the city. And stop for a coffee at Café Landtmann; it’s been a Viennese institution since 1873 and has been frequented by everyone from Freud and Mahler to Marlene Dietrich.
How to Get There
My wife and I want to express to you and your staff how much we enjoyed our stay at your hotel. We spent 4 nights there in early September 2019. We enjoyed your hospitality from the word go. Arriving late at night to the hotel, check in with the concierge and bell boy service were seamless. The position of the hotel being opposite the Schoenbrunn Palace Park was so good and easy to access. All the hotel staff manning the front desk were extremely good. Customer service was faultless. We spent several times with the staff asking to check tours and transport options and they were all very helpful. The hotel location is catered by an excellent hub of both bus and subway. The room was clean, spacious with a good floor plan. We did not book our room with breakfast but we attended the cafe for breakfast every morning for 4 days. The Cafe had plenty of food options and was far more economical than the hotel breakfast. The staff manning the cafe/restaurant in the morning were great!
The area in which the hotel is located has a range of food places, retail shopping and attractions, all a short 5 to 10 minute walk.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Wow! This place is huge! Never been to a hotel like it. The room was beautiful, super clean. There was a lot of classy touches, with lots of information in the room. Comfortable furniture, spacious shower, and seperate toilet. Very good!
A taste of the imperial without losing modern convenience. A depth of history that is evident in its ceilings, paintings and chandeliers that give it such elegance. It would be amazing to experience one of its famous balls.
We received a wonderful welcome, the barman was up to the challenge of making the perfect margarita (damn close!) but there is definitely a pride in their work which is a pleasure to see. The breakfasts are very good with being able to have your own personal omelette made and in a light airy room and the afternoon tea and dinner also good. Not many places you can enjoy a ham and cheese toasted sandwich with a glass of champagne.
It was chosen as it was a beautiful walk through the imperial palace gardens to and from the conference venue at the apothecary.
