What We Love

What To Know

Overview

Vienna charmer with bohemian history, a bold design and a fabulous bar and restaurant scene

The Look

Think imperial palace meets a luxurious interpretation of Viennese bohemian coffeehouse culture. Downstairs, bars and restaurants are saturated with bold colors — emerald-green, royal blue, deep red — and come furnished with crystal chandeliers, marble sculptures, antique furniture, wood-paneled walls and delicate stained glass ceilings. Upstairs, rooms and suites, recently renovated by interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, are respites from downstairs’ loud, bold design. Flat-screen televisions and the latest in hotel technology have been tastefully incorporated into the old bones of this classic building.

Bed & Bath

Whether a standard Superior Room or the penthouse Presidential Suite, guestrooms at Hotel Sacher tend to lean toward the opulent. Some of the suites are dressed with crystal chandeliers or painted in a palette of butter-yellow and taupe and embellished with white relief work. Some boast cozy fireplaces, while others feature separate studies, Art Deco–inspired bathrooms or original parquet floors. There is a monochromatic richness to all the rooms here, especially smaller Deluxe Rooms, in which pastel-colored furniture, linens and damask curtains amount to classic Viennese elegance.

Beyond

Despite how much there is to do and see in Vienna, many Sacher guests choose to spend a considerable amount of their time parked at the hotel. That may have a lot to do with the Sacher’s timelessly rich design, or maybe it’s the fabulous food and drinks served at the bars and restaurants. This is especially true of the Sacher’s legendary Blaue Bar, a room beaming with royal blue brocade walls and plush upholstered couches and chairs. The Negroni and selections of Riesling here are phenomenally good; the Sacher torte is rightfully famous.

In the Area

Hotel Sacher’s position in Vienna is most fortunate, for just down the road are such shops as the famous men’s atelier Wilhelm Jungmann & Neffe and such Viennese institutions as Café Central. A few minutes away are Vienna’s riveting assemblage of art and history museums, packed together in the city’s Museum Quartier. Find fabulous food markets such as the Naschmarkt, where banks of food, wine tastings and oyster bars, plus such hip evening eateries as the Naschmarkt Deli, await.

Expensive and flawed but good
Reviewed 3 days ago

Excellent situation. Ambience and decor will appeal to those who like old fashioned opulence. Others may find it a bit overbearing. Breakfast buffet the best and most extensive I have seen anywhere else!!
Room was OK but dark and the floor was not cleaned on the three days we were there. The rail in the wardrobe could only be reached by someone of 6'2" or more (see photo)!! On one of the days there was 6 solid hours of masonry drilling going on making it impossible to rest. No discount was offered fir this disturbance.
Generally good but overpriced.

A breakfast to die for!

An entire station of beautifully conceived creations for children. A remarkable selection of energized mineral waters. Every baked good you could imagine including Sacher torte. Wonderful fruit juices and smoothies.

Practically Perfect!

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The service was utterly professional, cordial, and very competent. The premises are beautiful and stately and so well maintained. The location really couldn't be better. And they have the best breakfast buffet I've ever seen! They even have a small breakfast cart for the children. The attention to detail and the seriousness and dignity with which they perform every task is remarkable.
Definitely one of the best hotels in the world!

The Sacher hotel, one of the Leading Hotels of the World is spectacular. The service is the best I have ever encountered. The concierge in particular was friendly and helpful in arranging restaurant reservations based on our taste. He and was terrific in assisting us by highlighting the major attractions and how to get there. The hotel is located across from the Opera House, one of the best locations in Vienna. and of course Sacher Torte every day.

A Classy and Elegant Hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

My wife and I are fortunate to have stayed in some wonderful hotels around the world but this hotel is arguably the best. It is in a class of it's own and exudes elegance. The staff are warm, professional and attentive which made our stay even better. We had high expectations before we came here and every expectation has been exceeded. The attention to detail is second to none and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
