Best hotel in Vienna
Best hotel in Vienna for sure. Service as perfect, and rooms are perfect and exactly what you expect when staying in a 100 year old hotel. Totally redone – not sleek, but a new redo. It is the perfect 5 star hotel. Restaurants that are in the hotel are also perfect. The service and the food were great, although I still enjoyed Plachuttas more., which was 2 blocks away. The coffee shops attached for the world famous Sacher cookie is very enjoyable – we went daily.

Return visit even better than the first!
When we first visited five years ago, we said it was true five star luxury. Our return was even better. Not only is it a beautiful hotel, with high quality decor, the service is outstanding in every department of the hotel. It is extremely well run, possibly because it is a family run business. They make you feel at home. Their attention to detail is first class. Nothing disappoints. We can't wait to return!

The Grande Dame - Excellent, Classic, Beautiful
If there's a sin in travel, it must be this: an unmemorable experience. You invest your time. You invest your money. You want something to show for it, something to remember. And yet even though global travel offers modern technology and comforts, I find so many hotels, excellent hotels even, interchangeable, indistinguishable, unmemorable.

The Hotel Sacher is memorable! The door opens. You step into a new world, or rather an old world, the Habsburg empire with its damasks, divans, mirrors, brocade walls, opulent and inlaid floors, crystal chandeliers, life-size and larger marble statuary, old world paintings, women in pearls and sapphires. It's an experience you'll not forget. Or regret.

Founded in 1876, in the middle of Emperor Franz Joseph nearly 70 year reign, the hotel has stood the test of time. Empires come. Empires go. The Sacher remains. The hotel traces to Eduard Sacher, scion of Franz Sacher. Franz was chef to Prince Metternich, the famous statesman who stood atop the pinnacle of European affairs for four decades. Franz invented the eponymous cake, the Sachertorte, which the hotel proudly features. Crowds queue outside the hotel just to buy it. Try it! It's delicious. Each morning, the kind maids stocked us with tasty chocolate morsels, including the torte.

As I say, most luxury hotels today are corporate-owned, perhaps contributing to their "corporate" and fungible feel. The Sacher however remains proudly family-owned, artisanal. You sense this immediately. The building is palatial yet cosy, opulent but relaxed, filled with Old Master paintings, chandeliers, and mementos of its glorious past.

The rooms are well-appointed, large and comfortable. We had a large suite that was traditional yet felt modern. The sensibility was of being in a home. A very nice home. With pattern-on-pattern fabrics, 19th century antiques and very quiet air-conditioning.

The hotel staff were simply excellent. The concierge met and anticipated our every request. We got last minute tickets and excellent seating for the symphony. We enjoyed horse drawn carriage rides, a train ride and trip to Salzburg (staying in the very beautiful sister hotel there). The concierge adroitly handled all these trips and made judicious and much appreciated recommendations.

The breakfasts were among the best I've had in my life. All in beautiful settings. The hotel restaurants are diverse and very, very beautiful.

In a lifetime of travel, the Sacher is among the finest and most memorable hotels I've experienced. Nothing else really compares to it or to its excellent team. Bravo! I very much look forward to returning.

Unparalleled opulence!!!
One of the most emblematic and resplendent hotels in the world,Sacher is the amalgamation of heritage and the charming reminiscence of the1876 grandeur with a touch of a desired modernity.The renovation done by Pierre-Yves Rochon was so tasteful and balanced(the TV integrated marble bathrooms are superb).

Most importantly,one must praise the utter proffessionalism of the hotel staff who accommodate guests with such ethos and excellence,as if we were vienesse nobility.

The location of the hotel is ideal,across the Opera and next to the Albertina museum. Christmas dinner at the Rote Bar Restaurant was sublime and the staff were truly exemplary.Likewise,the breakfast buffet at the Marble Hall was excellent,mimosas and the suggestion of french toast was a brilliant choice.Lastly,a visit at the Cafe Sacher Wien/Eck to sample once again the Original Sacher-Torte is a must.

Old World Charm Meets Modern Comforts
The newly renovated rooms and bathrooms were spacious and brightly-lit. The fruits and snacks in the room were delicious. The bathroom featured lightly-heated floor, heated towel racks, separate bathtub and shower, and even a TV. Our room had chandeliers, cloth slippers, a fireplace, a TV (concealed behind the fireplace which can be raised by a remote-control unit. You can connect it with your own smartphone via Bluetooth and play your own music. My only complaint is the space in front of the check-in counter was way too small so I felt very crowded and uncomfortable standing there (people had to squeeze past behind me to get to the next available clerk). Everything else was great. Oh, by the way, the snow globes in the sitting area were made in Austria.

One of the great European classics
Hotel Sacher is one of the great European classics. Everything is very traditional and old school but still the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The location is the best in Vienna, just next to the opera house and the pedestrian areas and shopping streets. The room prices are a little too high to offer full value for money. Apart from the location and the beautiful old interiors, the hotel does not have as much to offer as many other five star hotels in other big European cities. The staff was helpful. Arranged a table and helped us trough the back doors to the hotel’s very popular café, saving us about one hour of queuing in the street outside. Great breakfast buffet, including Sacher cake and Champagne. If you like traditional luxury and old school charm, this hotel is a great option.

Christmas in Vienna
Where do I start? We felt we had arrived at the most Christmassy place on earth. The hotel was a spectacle with decorations and lights. The lounge was adorned in red and trees and snow globes. We enjoyed “the most famous cake in the world”, the Sacher Torte with loads of endless champagne and couples from all over the world in merry spirits.

The staff was impeccable and every request was met with a smile and a “can do” spirit. It was absolutely delightful. I honestly can’t imagibe staying anywhere else in Vienna. You are across the street from the Opera House and a short walk to the Spanish Riding School. The city was bedazzled with Christmas villages.

Have a drink in the blue bar and a Sacher torte with coffee in the 20’s inspired cafe.

Best of Vienna
Hotel Sacher is iconic landmark in Vienna where all the celebrities royalties and presidents stayed. And it’s not surprise why. The minute you walk in and check in you immerse yourself in elegance classy world of luxury. Everything about this hotel is exceptional. The location right in the heart of old town and across from famous Wien Opera and walking distance to all major sights. The staff is wonderful makes every wish and request possible with smile on the face. HotelInterior is just beautiful old fashion classic. Breakfast is wonderful served in 2 beautiful rooms mirror room and green room both amazing. Dinner at Rote Bar is must experience and so are drinks in bit crowded Blue bar, which has great atmosphere. We had room unpgraded to night floor directly facing the Opera which was quite special. If you are looking for total Viennese experience this is place to be.

Wonderful classic hotel
The Sacher is the height of elegance, grandeur and tradition. It is understandably expensive. The service is extremely attentive and friendly but also quite formal. The Blue Bar, Red Restaurant and Green Restaurant are spectacularly appointed and feature their corresponding color scheme. It’s a bit of an older, stuffy crowd haunting those rooms but great for people watching. The rooms may be old but they are decked out with the most modern features including a TV in the bathroom mirror. If you’re a guest you can also jump the long line to get seated at Cafe Sacher to have the famous Sacher Torte. You will be situated just across from the opera house and close to the old city and Hofburg Palace.

Pure class from start to finish
Our first and eagerly anticipated visit for a three night stay at this beautiful hotel.
From the moment we set foot inside we knew we had made the right decision. Greeted very warmly and checked in by a lovely young lady who gave us a tour and then escorted us to our room. We had requested a view of the opera house which they kindly gave us, wow, wow,wow, the room was beautiful. Everything was right about it, all you could wish for was at your fingertips. Simply divine bathroom, clearly recently renovated but none of the charm I imagine this hotel has had for years is lost, perfection.
We happily explored Vienna but quite honestly this beautiful hotel made the trip for us. The staff really are marvellous, everyone from the bar to breakfast to front desk and the ever cheerful doormen.
Breakfast was busy but handled well and so delicious. Alot of people held up tables for an age by just sitting there with half a drink, but what can you do. I would never suggest hurrying as its such a beautiful room and you want to enjoy it all but many were there when we arrived and still sat chatting as we left and we tried most things.
Perfect central position and we had no need for transport as we walked everywhere. As mentioned in other reviews the front desk are very helpful with advice and recommendations.
Particular mention to the concierge and the doorman, we had pre booked a return taxi from a large company, well after a long wait it was clear they were not turning up!
Being the totally professional team they are they noticed us waiting, helped immediately by making a call to chase up, then thankfully after establishing the useless company had messed up called thier own service and within minutes were being whisked to the airport by a superb driver. Very grateful indeed so many thanks and my advice would be to use the hotels own transfers xx
Cannot wait to return in the summer to see Vienna in bloom and stay at without doubt the most beautiful hotel we have had the pleasure to stay in.

Description

Location
Only a block from Karlsplatz/Oper (tube lines U1, U2, U4) and all the major Ringstrasse tram lines, it's perfect for getting around on public transport and on foot. The building stands proudly across from the Albertina Museum and Hofburg Palace, and one of the main pedestrian shopping precincts, Kärntnerstrasse, starts right outside the door.

Rooms
Accommodation varies from floor to floor. Almost 150 rooms, of which over a third are suites, range from a size of 30 square-metres to a huge 165 square-metres. On the top two floors, some of the rooms boast lovely terraces with superb views. All accommodation is light, spacious and sparkling. Gleaming marble bathrooms have luxury toiletries and mirror TVs.

Food & drink
A favourite among the locals is the Rote Bar, actually not a bar but a top-notch restaurant, serving one of the best dishes of Tafelspitz in town. The Blaue Bar is a wonderfully intimate and romantic spot. The Anna Sacher main restaurant is sometimes a bit starchy to be comfortable, and service is not quite as perfect as one would expect. Breakfast is a lavish spread of delights. And don't forget the cake! Sacher Torte is one of the most popular cakes in the world and is available in Café Sacher or Sacher Stube next door.
