Refreshingly innovative dishes taste as good as they look, with impeccable service and a refined ambiance.

How to Get There
not having been to vienna since 1970s, palais coburg was an exceptional way to be reintroduced to this most charming city, and it is one of the finest hotels we’ve stayed at!
upon arrival, manager of the hotel, mr roland hamberger, greeted us with flutes of billecart salmon rose—a favorite!
our suite was size of a spacious n.y. apartment: on one floor: foyer with small service kitchen, powder bath, off it; ample living area opening to a small, protected viewing balcony; large bedroom; luxurious bathroom. more than ample clothes storage, both hanging and drawer space. rooms are elegantly furnished with beidermier antiques and good very good reproductions of 19c austrian furniture.
pol roger champagne, along with fruit and delicious viennese treats were there to greet us; these were refreshed every few days.
we ate at silvio nikol, the hotel restaurant, which was superb! and, had an excellent austrian ‘bordeau’ from hotel’s famed + impressive cellars!
breakfasts at small cafe, in reconstructed greenhouse opening to garden, above the lobby bar, was a charming start to each day.
lobby bar is handsomly furnished and is an excellent spot to end the day or evening
mr hamberger and his staff made it seem as if we were THE most important guests at palais coburg, which could not have been nicer.
a place to return to!
We loved our one night in this stunningly beautiful property at the Leopold residence suite. It's perfectly restored to the French Renaissance style, with a seamless blend of modern conveniences into this classical palace formerly owned by the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The decor and surroundings absolutely feel like it's fit for royalty. The check-in / out process was handled elegantly, and on demand services are prompt and discrete. It's almost like having your private house staff right at the hotel.
Our room was a spacious duplex where downstairs is the common space and upstairs is the bedroom. The space is very welcoming - evoking the feel of a luxurious private home. The decor is bright, simple and elegant, accentuated with the high ceiling. The huge windows look out to the hotel's garden, creating a serene and peaceful feel whilst still in the city center. The fully stocked kitchen and inclusive mini bar was fantastic for enjoying afternoon drinks in comfort as if we've returned home. The bathroom is large and ultra modern, and is attached to a huge walk-in closet.
The hotel facilities are fantastic. We enjoyed a few hours up in the pool / spa area on the top floor. Clementine is an excellent bistro for breakfast and light meals. The manager, Marjolein is super attentive. We didn't get a chance to try Silvio Nickol, but have heard that it's a great 2 Michelin stars restaurant. The large garden grounds is a also true rarity in the city. If you're interested, the hotel's wine cellar is one of the most impressive and largest in Europe. It's worthwhile putting in a request for a tour if you're staying there or dining at Silvio Nickol.
I can go on gushing about Palais Coburg... it's truly a property that I really didn't want to leave!
(P. S. Its staterooms / ballrooms are just gorgeous - on par with rooms of Versailles. I was in total awe. Really spectacular for special events!)
Truly amazing and one of the finest city hotels I have stayed in . Vienna as a city was wonderful and staying at the Palais Coburg was a real treat. 1st class in every dept service was 5* plus . Can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Vienna.
We have stayed at this magnificent hotel at the beginning of a very cold December. We have received a very warm welcome from Sebastian who then led us to our Residence Suite, which was a very kind suite upgrade offered by the hotel.
Sebastian was very friendly and had given us a lot of information about Christmas markets locations and directions to other places of interest.
The suite was just simply the best. It was very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated.
The hotel lobby and other areas of the hotel is very airy and spacious without being cold. There were Christmas decorations everywhere and it felt like a home from home.
I really enjoyed the breakfast at the Clementine Restaurant which is not served as a buffet but instead served to order. There was so much to choose from and it all was very delicious.
Every member of staff we met was friendly and very approachable.
We felt very comfortable there and couldn’t wait to return to our suite after long day visiting Christmas markets and other sites in the beautiful city of Vienna.
If you are looking for a 5* luxury then this is the place for you. I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed and that you will fall in love with this hotel just as much as I did.
One of the best and most amazing hotels in Vienna. It is centrally located. All the good comments you can read about are certainly true. Customer service is also five stars. You pay for what you get. 100% recommended!
