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
My cousin and I booked in for drinks at the Blaue Bar. Was smaller than I expected but other than that, it was quite an experience! Customer service was wonderful, everyone was attentive, drinks were very good. The atmosphere was elegant. I would come again.
This hotel remains simply amazing, outstanding and extraordinary! I would not know of any city hotel which takes as much care of its guests as the Sacher. It is perfectly located, a jewel of the past yet with modern elements and by far the cleanest hotel i know. Breakfast is superb, the blue bar amazing, the restaurants beautiful. You can see everywhere that there is a family behind this hotel taking of every little detail vs a classic hotel chain. They are extremely welcoming towards children and just very helpful. The rooms are very nice and as i said super clean and furnished with attention to every detail. The General Manager of the Hotel goes the extra mile and is seen everywhere welcoming guests and helping out whereever he can, a true Hotelier. Congratulations to the Guertler/Winkler Family for providing such an amazing service to their guests. My family loves this Hotel.
Having visited Vienna before I was keen to stay at The Sacher and am glad I did.
The welcome was warm and efficient - throughout the whole stay every member of the door staff & concierge team seemed eager to help and full of smiles.
The room was a great size and well appointed, with a wonderful welcome gift as part of Leader’s Club.
Breakfast should not be missed with the wonderful selection, beautiful dining room and ever attentive staff.
Being a guest at the hotel allows you to skip the queue for access to the Café Sacher too which is a useful perk when the queue is approaching the other end of the street!
Again, a beautiful hotel in a beautiful city with wonderful staff. Thank you
We could have stayed anywhere in Vienna but I’m so glad we stayed here. From the minute we arrived it was a five star experience. Michelle greeted us at reception and was just lovely. We had two newly renovated suites and they were fabulous. It’s like being a Hapsburg princess with all the modern conveniences. The suites were individually and beautifully decorated. One in a celadon the other in red. The bathrooms have a large quick filling tub and the shower is divine with a large rain shower head. Excellent water pressure, a real hair dryer (!) and lovely signature bath amenities. I loved our treat plates with mini Sacher tortes and other goodies. Housekeeping is excellent, everything is meticulously clean. Cocktails in the Blaue Bar were great. The breakfast buffet is beautifully presented. Every single member of the staff went out of their way to treat us so well. This is a landmark hotel that has been lovingly maintained and upgraded.
We stay here for three nights with two couples on a busy long weekend in may. The rooms were good. Spacy, clean, big bathroom etc...
Food during breakfast is great but at 9 o’clock you have to wait 10 min in order to Get a table. In the bar it’s the same problem. We were coming back from dinner and wanted one last drink in the bar. There was no table free because three tables were reserved. No help from the staff to find any solution neither... It’s a shame that a hotel like this doesnt have enough tables in their bar to help out their guests who pay a lot to stay there. If you have not enough tables then a fair system would be to not take any reservations. That way it’s first come, first serve. Something to improve in the future.
