Reviews for Hotel Sacher Vienna
The Sacher was opened in 1876 and entering this grandest of grand hotels is indeed like going back in time. The common areas are beautifully and dramatically furnished with a fine collection of antiques and paintings. The room was exactly as requested (large double, higher floor, anti-allergenic pillows); the bedding is of the highest quality, and they keep you supplied with fruit and a waist-expanding array of top quality chocolate (and the famous cake, the Sacher Torte). The location is simply unsurpassable: 3 minutes from the front entrance of the Vienna State Opera (another experience reviewed separately): the Albertinaplatz is around one corner, the main shopping street (Karntnerstrasse) around another, and the major attractions like the Hoffburg and the Museum Quarter just a short walk away. Breakfast, with a choice of rooms to sit in, was excellent: a wide range of quality meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals and hot dishes willingly cooked to order. English is widely spoken: the concierge very obliging: and reception service on arrival and departure very helpful. PRICE TIP: the 'walk-in' rates are obviously expensive and it pays to shop around, it really does. And do NOT assume that a travel agent is necessarily more expensive: a travel agent (with contract rates) may offer a package that is better or just as good a deal as well known websites. If you have got this far, you may be wondering about the 'but....'? Well, on Day 3 at 0700 I thought I could hear hammering and this became drilling, which was quite intrusive and clearly coming from somewhere across the corridor. We went out for the day but on our return at 1600, the noise was still there. Nobody had warned us there might be noise, which in a hotel of this class is to say the least a bit 'naughty'. A call to reception produced an apology and the offer of bottle of house champagne, not really what I wanted. When pressed, reception revealed that there was a problem with the renovation and no guarantee that the noise would stop the next day. A note to the manager suggesting that this was not quite good enough prompted a call from him offering us a different room. We accepted this and the following morning we were indeed moved, with minimal inconvenience to ourselves, to an extremely quiet room on the other corner of the hotel overlooking the Albertinaplatz. Now, you might shrug your shoulders and say 'just one of those things'. Well, maybe not: a search in the darker corners of this website revealed our experience is not unknown. They really should communicate more effectively if there is a potential noise problem. Otherwise a rewarding and enjoyable stay.

We enjoyed four nights at the unique Hotel Sacher. I say - unique - as I felt the hotel was "old school" luxury with much tradition. The service was quite special - again - "old school". Here are questions that I had before we booked - and my answers after 4 nights: 1. Five star? Yes. 2. Luxury in every way? Yes - but, do not expect an ultra modern looking hotel. Sacher is a classic that has been lovingly redone. 3. Quiet rooms? Yes, whisper quiet. When we checked in, the desk clerk asked if we wanted an upgrade over our assigned room. I said "let's see what you are offering". The clerk took about 20 minutes to personally show us our scheduled room and three alternates (at a 50euro upgrade per night). Very classy! Impressive! We selected an upgrade - facing the inner courtyard - based on our desire for a quiet room, above all else. No spectacular city view, but it was so quiet. I got what I wanted. 4. Hotel vibe? Definitely, old world luxury. I loved the photos of past guests and the hotel family. Guests seem to "dress up' even for drinks or tea. 5. Service? The concierge desk at the hotel front was "busy", but the guys took time to recommend and book restaurants for us. Every staff member said hello and a few picked up our names. 6. Location? Walking distance to the tourist places. Next to opera house. 7. Breakfast? We enjoyed one buffet breakfast and found the options superb. I loved their perfect Eggs Benedict. At 40 + euros, it is a bit pricey, but that is what the major European hotels seem to charge. 8. Negatives? Only one and nothing anyone can do about it: there was a 3" elevated lip between bedroom and hall in our room. After a few trips, we used caution. 8. Internet? Blazing fast. In summary, this is a unique, special, old world - old school, family tradition, luxury hotel (I think I included all the adjectives) - that I could recommend to anyone.

Delightful in every way. The hotel is the perfect balance of intimacy/personal service and big scale grandeur. Can't wait to go back. We loved our room (including the view), the staff, the location and the food. This might have been our family's favorite hotel experience of all time!

This was our first stay with the Hotel Sacher Vienna. Itâs rare that after a stay of five nights that there isnât something we noted that might have been different, or better. This stay the only thing we could think of, being Americans, we are used to our âdevicesâ and we looked for USB ports for charging without luck. When we mentioned it, we didnât get past Laslov, one of the exceptional porters, who immediately provided us with an adaptor. Other highlights, with their association of Leading Hotels/Leaders Club, we were provided a wonderful upgrade which included a balcony. The weather was so nice we sat outside most days and wanted to try something local for a bottle of wine but a little nicer than on the room service list. I prefer talking to people (instead of calling) so we went to the bar and Christian made a wonderful selection, prepared the bottle and provided glasses. This made for a great way to end the day. The concierge services were equally helpful and professional; they called for our dinner reservation, made suggestions of where to go and when; everything went perfectly with their assistance. We dined in the hotel restaurant twice, we were very pleased with the wine selection, the food was exceptional and the service was impeccable. We had just come from the Sacher in Salzberg and noted how good the soufflĂ© was; we were told, please just ask, so for our last night we did. Without question, they prepared our dessert to perfection. We have started to try to say at more heritage hotels for the style and comfort; we saw many of the chains and other smaller luxury hotels in Vienna, but we would highly recommend Sacher Vienna for your next stay in town; we cannot think of anything that they would not exceed your expectations.

The attention from staff is the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. They really seem to care about your every need. The rooms are very comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast caters for anything you could wish for and we enjoyed the Green Bar and a meal at the Rote Bar
