We stayed in July 2019 for 2 nights at the Hotel Imperial. 2 rooms for our family of 4 were provided side by side. Rooms were large even by US standards. Great library bar just past the lobby. We ate breakfast each morning and it was very good, with many options. There is also outdoor seating on the Ring for meals and drinks. Service was top notch through out or stay. Great walkable location in Vienna - We are looking forward to returning in the summer of 2021.

Luxurious opulent rooms with textile wallpaper and glass chandeliers. It seems that small things get repaired as we’ve had issues with shower last time and this time it was repaired (yes, we got the same room). The staff was even more pleasant than before, with excellent concierge and efficient and friendly reception staff. We booked a family rate which included breakfast. This allowed us to enjoy the huge and excellent brunches every day. I probably wouldn’t want to pay 41€ for breakfast if it weren’t included, but it really was very tasty. The location of the hotel is great too, it takes just a few pleasant minutes walking to get to all the museums, theaters a many great restaurants. There is maybe a tiny little detail they could work on. I don’t watch TV at home, so hotels are the only opportunity for me to do so. Here, they only have a very limited number of English language channels. But I’m sure watching TV is not your main reason for travelling to Vienna. Overall, excellent and comfortable, great service. Will definitelly stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last two months. It has been a pleasure each time. Its a beautiful old world historic hotel with modern amenities and a great location. In my opinion, what sets this hotel apart from the others, is the staff. They are always very friendly and truly go above and beyond to make your stay the best possible. Everyone knows you by name very quickly. Karina was very helpful with local reservations, leisure suggestions and made sure I had a wonderful room on each visit. I really cannot say enough good things about the people at this hotel. It makes a huge difference in the quality of the stay. A big thank you to everyone at the Hotel Imperial!

This was our third time staying a the Hotel Imperial, and again, the entire experience was flawless. Adam is an example of someone who went above and beyond for us. Upon checking-into the suite, he overheard that we were interested in a more spacious suite. He took it upon himself to call the front desk and arranged for us to move to a slightly larger suite immediately. That's what I would call "Exceptional Hospitality." This was just one example of how the team made us feel so welcome. I want to mention the Café Imperial has the best traditional Austrian dishes and the friendliest team members. We ate at several Viennese restaurants but the Café Imperial was the best. We will be back at the Hotel Imperial whenever we stay in Wien.

We have stayed at the Imperial Hotel twice and both times it was a wonderful experience. It is located in a very convenient central area of Vienna, yet away from traffic in a sumptuous imperial residence. Both suites we stayed in (the second being a kind upgrade in a wonderful maisonette overlooking Vienna’s rooftops) were princely and spotless, marble bathrooms and luxury decorations. Chilled champagne and fruit welcomed us upon our arrival. A nice touch was also the printed temporary visiting cards. Being a nice summer, breakfast was served outside. No buffet due to Covid restrictions, but a rich and varied menu and tasty offers elegantly presented. Upon registration we have been presented with a nice kit of masks and disinfectant and all Coronavirus preventive measures were very stringently, yet discreetly followed. The true, wonderful asset of this hotel is its staff. At all levels from reception, to doormen, concierge, cleaners, waiters, to the managers, they have all gone out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Always smiling, there was nothing they could not do and made us feel at home in an Emperor’s palace. We spent wonderful days in Vienna also thanks to them. A special thank you to the Director of Rooms, Marina, who made a point of coming to greet us both times and catered for our wonderful stay. We will definitely go back
