"Hotel Imperial - a great hotel in downtown Vienna"
We had very high expectations for our first visit to Vienna, staying at the famous Hotel Imperial. We were not disappointed. Room was as expected - luxurious, charming with historical artifacts, clean and quiet. Only thing during our stay that could be improved was the concierge service, which was fair at best, and not at a level that we expected at […] a five star hotel.

This is great hotel with a great location. You can walk to Belvedere and you can walk to Stephanplatz. It is close to the Vienna Subway which is fabulous since you can get anywhere on the subway - which is very clean and easy to use. The food at the hotel was superb although I only ate breakfast and snacks there. The service at the restaurant was excellent. […] The bar is beautiful and comfortable but would have benefitted from a wider selection of Austrian beers. The rooms are very, very quiet at night. You would not think that you were in the middle of a city. The only negative was the wifi which was erratic. You had to move from place to place in order to stay connected.

"Luxury hotel at the center of the city"
The services of all staff were extraordinary. In addition, the restaurants and room service provided exquisite food. The check-in experience was a breeze. Even though we came in early the rooms were ready and they didn't mind us getting to our rooms early. Also, our room had a great view towards the intersection.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Opulent, beautiful & luxurious"
Must be ranked among the top 5 Star hotels in the world. The head Concierge and the entire Concierge desk provide exceptional service. This is not an inexpensive hotel, but if you are seeking a luxury property and willing to pay the price, it is worth it (our experience is that there are hotels that are ranked as 5 Star that are not even close to 3 […] Star; the Hotel Imperial is truly a 5 Star hotel). Our room was luxurious and for once, there was enough closet space for our clothes; we typically stay 2 to 3 weeks at a hotel when we travel so we have lots of luggage. Not only were there two huge closets, there were two large armoires in our room for clothes or storage. The decor included a beautiful chandelier, sofa, two chairs, a desk and chair and a dressing table and chair in our room, in addition to a flat screen tv and assorted coffee tables. The bathroom was smaller than those in newer hotels, but the space was well planned. As an example, there were plenty of storage shelves under the double sinks…places to put all the extra towels and anything else. Housekeeping is impeccable; there was not a speck of dust anywhere in the room (not even on the light bulbs or behind the bed tables). The housekeeping staff were efficient and willing to work with our schedule. looking for an outstanding experience in one of the most luxurious hotels, the Hotel Imperial in Vienna is for you.

We very much enjoyed our 5 night stay there & would use the hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want the best in Vienna this is it! Wonderful hotel. The very best staff. Expensive but worth every penny. When I return to Vienna I will indulge my self again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Truly an excellent classic hotel in the inner city"
We stayed at the Hotel Imperial for a week to celebrate our mutual 75th birthdays in November 2013. Our stay was enjoyable in all respects: the room, the food, and the convenience to many of Vienna's sights were memorable. Of particular significance was the always pleasant and helpful attitude of all of the staff, including room service personnel, the […] doormen, waiters, the front desk, the concierge, and the Chief Concierge. We very much appreciate their efforts which made us feel at home, and added immeasurably to what surely will be a lifetime memory of beautiful Vienna. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
great 5 star hotel. the location could not be better. even November is a good time to be in Vienna. the water in Vienna is very soft and the hotel has a large bath tub, one must enjoy. I recommend this hotel and have talked to many of my friends about the Imperium hotel however two persons also stood there and we talked of it in chorus. Money very well […] spent.

"A Grand Hotel in the best sense of the word"
We stayed for 2 nights at this wonderful hotel and occupied a roomy suite on the 3rd floor. The hotel keeps it's classic and grand charm of an bygone era. The rooms were appointed with high ceilings, elaborate wall fabrics and moldings but provided for all modern amenities and lavish bathrooms. The staff is friendly and quietly helpful and made the […] stay a pleasant one. The location is ideal for exploring Vienna by foot. A wonderful experience which we will repeat in the future.

"OK, not great"
Room was fine, but not as nice as the price would suggest. Shower leaked so we had to use the tub. No hot water early in the morning, so I had to use a kettle to get water hot enough to shave with (but no kettle provided in the room, we had to ask). Weak internet signal (so we used wired internet). Relatively small room. On the other hand, the staff […] efficiently resolved any issue we brought up with them, and were friendly as well.

"Wonderful hotel, but under renovation."
I've been recommended this hotel by a friend who stayed there before. It is a lovely historical building but unfortunately we have not been told that hotel will be undergoing renovation at the time of our visit. The main restaurant was closed, and also the main hall and the boutique. The first floor main area felt very cramped in. However the rest of […] the hotel was gorgeous. We had a mini-suite on the third floor and we took the magnificent stairs up and down several time per day. Room was very clean and spacious, and we had a balcony overlooking the street.

"Very nice hotel close to everything"
Very helpful staff Restaurant/cafe way too expensive 38 euro for breakfast Buffett too expensive Walk to McDonald less than .5 block for much better dealGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old and tired"
This is not a 5 star hotel. It is simply a Starwood hotel in an old historic building. From every appearance the hotel last underwent substantial renovation during the reign of the Habsburgs. It was hot in Vienna during our stay, and the air conditioning throughout the building (lobby, restaurant, cafe, guest room) was struggling to keep up. I doubt […] our room ever got cooler than about 80 degrees F. The room was quite spacious, but the bathroom was the size of a broom closet. One small sink. An old tub/shower. Useable floor space measured 2 1/2 by 3 feet - that is not a typo. When asked whether we could be moved to a room with a larger bathroom, the very curt, somewhat rude answer was "not at our rate". Our rate, by the way, was $560 per night, tax included. Judging by the number of people in the hotel common areas (lobby, cafe, restaurant, etc.) I'm guessing it was less than 50% occupied. Virtually any service-oriented hotel would have provided an upgrade. The breakfast buffet looked wonderful, but at 50 euro per person, we passed. We did not dine in the restaurant, primarily because nobody else was either, which is usually a good indication that there are better places for dinner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for couples."
This hotel is absolutely wonderful. We have traveled the world and this hotel, bar none, is the best we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail, the food, and the staff are amazing. The staff treats you like family and royalty, all in one. The hotel is beautiful. Although smaller than we had atticipated, the quaint, and supurbly decorated spaces, […] made you feel like you were definately somewhere special. The location was great, easy access to everything you would want to go to. The bar with the grand piano music was gorgeous at night and the dining room was beautiful with excellent food! It doesn't get much better!! PS. The beds were the most comfortable and supportive!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Oh, get me back here ASAP!"
A stunningly beautiful hotel. Central location and within walking distance to most everything. The room was gorgeous, well appointed, as comfortable as a place could be. When we arrived, there was a bowl of fruit, and poinsettia plant to greet us (it was the week before Christmas!). Room service always came with a beautiful fresh rose. Service was […] immediate and extremely friendly. The concierge service was faultless -- maps, drawings, subway tickets all provided for our convenience. I can sum it all up to say that the last night I went out on our balcony and cried because I never wanted to leave this dream come true! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
One of the finest hotels in the world. Highly courteous and professional staff. Everything you could want in a hotel. Very formal, but guests are made comfortable whether formal or in blue jeans (however I suggest bringing both attires).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome Experience - Gluten Free Bread"
Excellent building and wonderful staff. Everything was perfect. For the gluten free travelers, the hotel makes gluten free bread daily and the Imperial Torte is gluten free as well. Highly recommend those with a gluten intolerance to take advantage of this opportunity. Overall, an amazing place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Business trip in Vienna"
Very expensive - paid 400+ euros for one night. Nice common areas that had recently been renovated, but rooms are a bit dated and lacked some amenities (didn't even have coffee in the room, or bottled water). Stayed in room 329 - pretty, but in need of modernisation. Good location and beautiful building. Nice staff. But, still - over priced for the […] quality and state of the room.

"Hotel with rich history but not so friendly staff"
A hotel of this class and price you expect exceptional service - this is where our expectations were not met. The desk staff were efficient but not overly friendly, or helpful. Living in the Middle East we are used to being welcomed at 5 star hotels with a lot of hospitality, big smiles and an eagerness to help - we were expecting the same. Breakfast […] at 41 euro per person is just outrageous - consequently the restaurant was empty every morning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I took my wife for her 50th birthday and I knew that it certainly wasn't the cheapest place in town. Having said that it was wroth every penny.

"Fabulous stay in a Historic Treasure"
We had such a memorable week at the Hotel Imperial. The staff was wonderful at delivering the highest quality service, despite being in the middle of major renovations to the entrance.

"Great Hotel in a great part of the city"
This hotel is central to the Karlsplatz sub which is excellent for reaching other places, although vienna is not so big so we walked most places. Hotel were excellent, the beds were super comfy and I'm very hard to please being a bigger bloke. Excellent. Will stay here again if we go to vienna.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice stay, excellent service"
Special cake for my granddaughter's 10th birthday. We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was really worth it. Room service was very qualitative, so was the morning breakfast. Very good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel in the centre of Vienna."
Superb hotel and probably one of the best we have ever stayed in. Very central and easy walking distance from most main attractions. The staff were courteous, polite and nothing was too much trouble. On our last day (also my 50th birthday!), I was presented with a 'Birthday Sashertorte', which came complete with candle. We would definitely come back […] to Hotel Imperial and recommend it to friends wanting something that little bit more special. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Opulent, amazing, expensive"
Marble everywhere, huge chandeliers, intricate detail in decoration, exquisite service and very comfortable beds - very good indeed! It is also very, very expensive. The included wifi is too slow to play a low def Youtube video, and a faster version costs €20 per day. The breakfast buffet is nice but not extraordinary, yet costs an eye-watering €41 […] per person, also for children. The location is very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything about this hotel is five star, but what really made the difference was the staff. From the managers to the concierge to the bar staff everyone was very welcoming and made some fantastic recommendations.

"Good for business or pleasure"
We were there for our anniversary but it would be good for business too. Lovely old building with friendly staff and beautifully maintained. The restaurant is very good and the Imperial Torte is the best cake in Vienna. Vienna can be quite formal but the staff here are friendly and the luxurious setting added to the enjoyment - not too stuffy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hotel which added to a perfect weekend"
This a grand hotel that caters to royalty and makes all other guests feel that way as well. Excellent cafe, bar, common areas and possibly the most beautiful lobby and staircase I have seen in a hotel make this a magical setting.

"Ameri-Brits do Thanksgiving in Vienna!"
A truly lovely old European hotel. Elegant, but not overly stuffy. Grand and beautiful, but comfortable and easy to relax. The conceirge was most helpful with arranging tickets for us to see the Vienna Philharmonic at the Concerthaus. They were also very helpful with dinner reservations. Had traditional Viennese for lunch one day and fantastic Italian […] dinners other evenings. The Bar is very cozy and it was nice to be remembered by the staff when we went for a drink in the evenings. Two minor downsides, in such a lovely and pricey hotel, they need a real hairdryer, not the one stuck in a drawer with a curly, high tensioned cord. Also, our room was on the front of the hotel. It was very quiet but they could use darker curtains to keep the light out at night. Bathroom was gorgeous. Location was great. The tangerines in bowl in the room were yummy! A definite go-back-to hotel next time in Vienna! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel. Needs updated amenities to be the best"
This is supposed to be "The Best Hotel in Vienna"...and it's very nice. The styling is very Baroque, and that's cool since you're in Vienna...gilded and fancy...but with all that history and grandeur, for this price, you'd expect a high pressure shower, and a nice comfy bed. The shower needed updated, and the sink was cracked. The bed was nice, but […] hard. I do have to say that the service was pretty great and the location is really ideal as well.

"Imperial Hotel - expensive but value for money"
It is obviously an expensive 5 star hotel but the combination of the comfort, service, quality of the room plus the chance to sleep in a piece of history with beutiful private and public areas makes it "value for money".Genuine Expedia guest review

"Fabulous "Real" 5 Star Hotel"
Excellent hotel, service & staff. A genuine 5 Star hotel, not a 4 star hotel pretending to be a 5 Star. I'll be going back for another stay in December to visit the Christmas markets. I'm really looking forward to it.Genuine Expedia guest review
From start to finish this is a luxury experience. If you take an Elisabeth Suite you get picked up at the airport and are provided with your own Butler! Rooms and general hotel is all grand, good old fashioned style and standards. Staff are all very helpful and friendly, room service spot on. I'm afraid we ate breakfast in our room two days and dinner […] once so can not comment on restaurant, but the food delivered was first class. If you want to have a special occasion this is a hotel that will satisfy, if you are just a weary traveller then the bed and all its trimmings are delightful and you will sleep well.

Eine Institution in Wien. Perfekter Zustand, perfekter Service. So wie man sich ein spezielles Luxushotel vorstellt. Für das echte Wien-Feeling. Einziger Optimierungspunkt: Das Frühstück könnte für dieses Hotel etwas "pompöser" sein.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
まるで宮殿に泊まっているような素敵なホテルでした。アメニティのシャンプーもすごくよくて、髪がさらさらになります 。 ただ、オペラ座まで還暦の母を連れて徒歩７分ほどかかりました。なので、買い物の途中でちょっとホテルに戻りたい時などは少し不便で、街の中心部により近いにザッハーにすればよかったと何度か思いました。 でもそれを差し引いても素敵なホテルです。一番近い地下鉄の駅にスーパーがありますが、実はホテルそばのマックの横にもあります。 マックの影に隠れて、私は見つけたのが遅かったので、書いておきます。 ちなみに、どこかのサイトに日本語が話せるスタッフがいると書いてあったので、日本語が話せるスタッフを出して。とお願いしましたが、いないと言われてしまいました。Genuine Expedia guest review
