A decadent, five-star hotel stay in the heart of beautiful Vienna, with buffet breakfast, spa access, suite options and more

The Lowdown

Situated in a prime spot, right on the Ringstrasse, Vienna’s sumptuous Palais Hansen Kempinski offers a decadent base for exploring one of Europe’s most picturesque capitals. The historic building, originally constructed for the World Exhibition in 1873, has been carefully restored to offer five-star luxury to its discerning clientèle. With respectful tribute paid to the building’s original architecture, you’ll find luxurious modern furnishings and facilities that blend seamlessly with their historical surroundings.
The theme of Viennese charm with contemporary design continues on into the spacious rooms, blending traditional touches with bang-up-to-date technology. Wake up on your comfy bed, to views of Theophil Hansen’s stunning architecture with a freshly made Nespresso each morning. After a day’s sightseeing in Vienna, the menu of simple yet sophisticated dishes at the two restaurants offers a delicious way to replenish your energy levels before turning in. High-end modern spa facilities blend with the bathing culture of the Ottoman Empire at the hotel’s luxury spa.


With a flair for Viennese modernism, the hotel’s luxurious rooms combine contemporary design, noble colours and stylish materials. Deluxe rooms have a king-size bed and a balcony and a sleeper sofa. Suites are individually appointed with subtle and sumptuous fabrics and furnishings. They ooze sophistication and historic Viennese charm, and in them you’ll find at least 50 square metres to do with as you please.


The hotel has a great selection of restaurants and bars to choose from. Die Kuche features an open kitchen, a delicious farmers’ market-style breakfast selection and succulent roasts of the day, while Edvard offers a more upmarket setting with a simple menu of high-end creations made using fresh ingredients. Viennese coffee and delicious pastries are served in the Lobby Lounge.


The spa at Palais Hansen Kempinski offers several
saunas, a hydro pool, tranquil treatment rooms and a well-equipped gym. Choose from a sumptuous menu of treatments and therapies
that incorporate hand-picked organic herbs, reflecting the European


Visit the stunning nearby St Stephen’s Cathedral and the former Vienna Stock Exchange, before continuing on to the heart of the Habsburg Empire at The Imperial Palace. Get inside the mind of Freud at the Sigmund Freud Museum and release your inner child on Vienna’s giant ferris wheel for a beautiful night time view of the city.

Perfect weekend

You can everything you're expecting from a 5 star hotel. Perfect location, nice and kind staff, clean room, comfy beds, delicious food. Might not perfect if you travel with lots of kids, but for business trip, for couples or for families with limited number of kid(s), just perfect.
And don't forget the apple strudel in the hall :) the best.

Nicest hotel in Vienna!

We loved our visit to this hotel - elegant, convenient to the Ring transportation, quiet, beautiful, amazing breakfast, kind and helpful staff. This may have been the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in - at least in the top 5. I would highly recommend it. We loved Vienna and this elegant hotel made it even more memorable.

High Class!

Grand entrance & very helpful staff with big welcoming attitude. The restaurant breakfast was fantastic. So many varieties of breakfast favorites. The chef who cooked the omlets, Mr. Bijan Sarbandi, was especially friendly and nice. His omlets were delicious.
