The Palais Coburg, ideally located in the heart of Vienna is a magnificent palace, just a few steps away from pictureous Stadtpark and quite close to the major sights. The hotel concept is truly unique around the globe. Well, they call themself a "Residence", and that is exactly what they are. A hidden Palais with 33 amazing suites, individually designed by preserving its historical treasures. The whole building is heritage protected, but it is still one of the most modern places I have been to. All staff are high professionals that make your stay memorable and give you the feeling of being at home away from home. There is a very nice but small Spa area on the 3rd floor with pool, jacuzzi, gym, sauna and steam bath. From the open terrace at the Spa you have a nice view to Vienna's vibrant city life. The only pity is, that the fine dining restaurant, which was one of the top restaurants in Europe is temporarily closed due to the chance of the chef. The “Weinbistro”, located on the first floor is a good place to have a light cosy meal, but I wouldn’t consider it as a fine dining high class restaurant. Better try one of the outstanding restaurants in the city like the “Steirereck” or the “Kim kocht”. It's quite hard to describe, what your impressions are while staying at the Palais Coburg. You have to experience it yourself. As mentioned in one of the previous ratings, most of the so called "luxury hotels" out there have to reconsider their quality concept. What the Palais Coburg has to offer is a lot, and you will be asked to pay a lot. But it is definitely worth it, and a certain price is ensuring its uniqueness. Also a very nice touch is the Mercedes Pullman limousine service, provided by the Palais Coburg. I hope to be back soon to this magical palace, as this place will remain my first choice residence in Vienna.

If you didn't already know the Palais Coburg used to be a palace- if you are planning to stay here, expect to be treated like royalty. We couldn't have picked a more amazing hotel if we had tried. Our entire stay was amazing. Our room was spectacular; it was over two floors and upon arrival they gave us a full bottle of champagne, mango juice for our daughter, fruit, chocolate and other snacks. Turn down service would give us chocolates on a plate down stairs, it had a map of what the chocolates where and a hand written note wishing us a good night. We poked our heads into the Imperial hotel, it feels heavy in design work, as the Palais Coburg's design feels light and airy in the most elegant way. On our way out of town one of the ladies at the front desk gave us six bottles of water and three apples. Overall we can't wait to go back.

From check in to departure, we were treated with absolute respect. Every member of the staff expressed pride in their jobs and made us feel as if they were there just for us. Our suite was perfectly maintained and the amenities exceeded our expectations.
The restaurant was relatively small but absolutely amazing, and the wine pairings were an experience that demanded appreciation of the knowledge behind them. I would recommend that one night dine in the Palais and another take a short walk through the park and dine at Steirereck. These two dining experiences may just change your life!
If you are into wine, definitely schedule a cellar tour. This is the best collection I have ever had the opportunity to see firsthand.

In terms of atmosphere, more like a boutique hotel, but in a grand renovated palace.

I had a split-level suite that was very well equipped: kitchen, complimentary drinks, loose-leaf tea, espresso machine, separate guest toilet, two flat-screen TVs, Bose stereo, small laptop with complimentary Internet (first time I see this), bathroom with separate shower and toilet. Some of the decoration and layout is quirky, and the cupboards look shabby.

The hotel is quiet and you do not see a lot of staff around, but service is very good: check in in the room, welcome with champagne + fruit + chocolate + cake, full turndown service. Some of the textiles (bed mat for turndown, spa robe) are from the excellent Porthault brand, which I use at home but rarely come across in hotels (Frette, for example, is more common).

The spa on the top floor is not very large but of high quality: fitness equipment with TV screens, wet and dry saunas (+ cold plunge pool, which is very rare in city hotels), pool. In addition I had the spa all to myself for a few hours.

I did not try the restaurant but I did have breakfast in the bistro, which is a la carte and first rate, especially the freshly prepared thin pancakes (Palatschinken) with home-made apricot jam.

Very expensive (watch out, rates are going up for 2009) but worth it, considering the size of the rooms and the overall performance.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with our 18 month old baby and we couldn't have done better. I had looked into this hotel but didn't book our stay here because we didn't see many reviews. Now that we've experienced it, I must share it with others. We actually started at the Hotel Sacher and moved to Coburg when we didn't get the room we reserved at Sacher. We walked to Coburg and asked if they had rooms available and they showed us one of them and we were sold. Palais Coburg was an amazing property and is what anyone would consider to be pure luxury. The hotel is an old palace converted to a hotel and the service, amenities, and accommodations are all fit for royalty. The room we stayed in had 2 floors with a bedroom and a huge bathroom upstairs and living room, kitchenette and half bath downstairs. Everything was extremely luxurious and the attention to details (from the switch of the light fixtures to a bathrobe for my baby) was amazing. One thing we really appreciated about this hotel compared to the Sacher was the friendliness of the staff. They were laid back and helpful in every way without making you feel uncomfortable. The restaurant where we had breakfast everyday (breakfast is included in your room rate) had great food with fruit tray, hot breakfast options, fresh juices, etc. The staff always made us feel comfortable despite my kid spilling drinks on the table and wanting to run around the place. Another bonus for this hotel is its spa/pool which is not common for European city hotels. The facilities were immaculate and we had the place all to ourselves every day we went there. So, what is the downside for this place? It's expensive. Although if you add in breakfast for two (at least 50euros) and free internet (which costs 25euros/day elsewhere) you are getting the best value relative to the other 5 star hotels in Vienna. It costs us 50euros more per night to stay here but it was well worth it. If you are planning to splurge and are used to traveling where everything is done just right, this is the place to stay.
