Unravel the tales of Vienna with a luxurious stay in this five-star, city-center hideaway. Palais Coburg Residenz is a city pad you won’t be forgetting in a hurry. Impressive inside and out, this palatial building was amusingly dubbed “Asparagus Castle” upon construction, owing to its distinctive double-height column façade. From here, you’re located just moments from some of Vienna’s best sights and a plethora of public transport links nearby, should you wish to explore outside your regal surroundings.
This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner also has a decadent spa, situated on the third floor, transcending Vienna’s beguiling rooftops. Here, you can indulge with a treatment or unwind amid the host of facilities on offer. The best part: it’s open until midnight, so you can soothe your tired feet after a day exploring the city. For dining, Palais Coburg Residenz continues to wow with an award-winning restaurant that has not just one, but two Michelin stars pinned to its whites.
Décor is sophisticated, fresh and modern, with plush fabrics and high-end furnishings. Residence suites measure up to 980 square feet and look out over the garden or cathedral from their terrace.
Palais Coburg’s Silvio Nickol restaurant holds two Michelin stars, alongside a plethora of other impressive accolades. Refreshingly innovative dishes taste as good as they look, with impeccable service and a refined ambiance. Clementine serves creatively interpreted traditions for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the conservatory and garden, while the hotel’s wine bar affords views of the High Casemate (vaulted chamber) and serves coffee and snacks during the day.
Palais Coburg Residenz is home to a spa that’s fittingly decadent for its palatial surroundings. There’s a training area, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, conservatory, sun terrace and a wide range of therapeutic and beauty treatments on offer. Be sure to try out the vinotherapy; the wine spa offers treatments that are curated using carefully selected grapes and grape seeds for their rejuvenating properties. The spa is open daily from 7am until midnight.
Palais Coburg occupies an enviable location in the center of Vienna. This impressive building is just a short walk from St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Stadtpark, and you’ll find a plethora of underground stations within easy reach, too.
How to Get There
the smallest rooms in the hotel are already over 2 floors and really big.
the service that everything which is in the fridge is included is a nice gesture, incl. a bottle Pol Roger Champagne.
there are just some minor things which are disappointing like the cigar lounge which has the charm of a railway-station with old used furniture and a really bad smell, the non existing movie channels in the room and the old fashined TV sets.
the breakfast could have more choices
It took me a little time to settle on which Hotel to stay in for my birthday in Vienna. Thankfully it was all my choice as I was paying and with a little research, knowing my preference was classical and the various places I wanted to visit I decided to stay in Palais Coburg Residenz. I had frequent contact ahead of my trip from a Guest Experience manager who helped me to co-ordinate any requests, transfers, preferences etc. Its quite thorough as they obviously want to make sure that visitors get what they want, now and in the future. My son and I were met at arrivals and taken to the hotel for check in which was seamless even though a large ball was happening that evening and the hotel was busy. We were upgraded from a Residenz suite to a Palais Suite which was very kind ( it was my birthday) and the Loft room had a stunning view of St Stephens Cathedral which I had requested. The room was incredibly spacious, courtesy mini bar ( incl a delicious bottle of champagne) giant bath, yoga mat and valhrona chocolates at bedtime!! The breakfast in Clementine Restaurant are delicious with a vast selection from incredibly healthy to decadent. Every time we left the hotel my son and i were greeted and spoken to by staff who were all friendly and welcoming, most importantly they knew who we were, it felt personal rather than us dissolving into a crowd of guests. I am an independent traveler so needed little from the reception or concierge but I knew if I did I could ask and they would do everything in their power to help. This is an incredibly beautiful, classical and historical hotel, this is expensive, but in my experience it is as welcoming as a friend's home. I will definitely be back.
Had a family wedding here. The hotel is very grand and imposing. It’s not cheap.... but it certainly makes a statement. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the wine cellars, which was very interesting.
First of all, we didn’t stay here, nor did we dine (couldn’t get in at the Nickol restaurant), but we did come twice to the lounge. We had the same server both times, and he provided outstanding service. It’s not often that one can enjoy champagne and nibbles in a real palace, the ambiance of the lobby is lovely, and peering down into the old cellar (now a large event space) is pretty cool too.
Not by choice to stay here unfortunately.
Just not a fan of gold plated everything and not everything works either. Had an intern showed us a room and he doesn't seem very knowledgeable.
The pillows are non-existent. They are so flat, I might as well sleep on 2 sheets of paper.
Didn't care much for the 50k wine collection either.
Two good things:
1. Toiletries are provided by Acqua di Parma.
2. The in-house Clementine Restaurant is amazing.
