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.
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.
How to Get There
We stayed for two nights at the end of our long trip and it was perfect. The room was readied with handwritten welcome note, snacks, and water. The room was new and nicely decorated. The bathrooms was especially nice with heated floors!
The staffs were very helpful. Great breakfast and great decoration at every inch of the hotel. A lovely place to stay if you happened to be in Vienna. Will definitely revisit.
Stayed at this hotel in 2 suites for 5 days. Firstly only given 2 small bottles of water a day. When we asked for more to be sent up , we never received them.
Food when having room service arrived cold. Asked for a few things on our stay , communication is so bad. And we got charged 5 euros a day to use their stroller. For a hotel with 5 stars one really is offered the minimal service. It looks nice from the outside and people are polite. Just the service they provide is a bit crap.
Weekend stay and everything was made very smooth by the superlative staff, esp concierge (thank-you Wolfgang and Eduard) The service is beautifully correct, formal yet friendly and charming
Amazing location in the historic center and walking distance from St Stephens, Hofburg Palace and Albertina and opposite to the Opera House. The property carries the traditions of its history carefully but everything works wonderfully. Rooms are very well appointed and service, turn down etc..all flawless
Wonderful to experience such traditions still very much alive
A beautiful hotel in a perfect setting. Opposite the Opera House - lovely.We booked this trip for my mother in laws 80th birthday and we also had our young son with us. We were upgraded to the Mozart Suite so that we could be close to gran. The rooms were beautiful. Elegant, comfortable and with every amenity. Lovely bathrooms with amazing toiletries ! We ate in the Rote Bar on the first evening. Staff were very attentive, but not obtrusive and the pianist was perfect. Everyone was very well looked after and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was just right, not too formal but definitely elegantly done. We were sat next to the piano yet the music wasn't too overbearing. A lovely evening.
Breakfast was another perfect affair. The staff again were attentive but not over bearing and the food of course, delicious.
We did have a couple of slips in service in that the flowers I ordered to be in gran's room on arrival didn't appear and one evening our rooms didn't get made up. I did complain and we did get flowers and champagne to compensate. All in all a great place. In our opinion the only place to stay in Vienna.
The Sacher Hotel is beyond your imagination in beauty and class. It is so beautiful to look at. They do everything they can to make sure you have an amazing stay. The bed, the rooms, the treats that they give you in your room, the robe, the slippers! The shower is an experience! The food at the hotel is better than anything you could imagine! I could go on & on but you just need to try it for yourself! This place is beyond five stars and everybody should live this way at least once in their life. Treat yourself!
