Hotel Sacher Wien

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Wien is famous for many things. But, the Sacher Torte is definitely the best and the sweetest. Hotel Sacher is the home of this delicious delight. There may be a lineup to get in and the prices a bit high, but this is the real deal and the atmosphere is straight out of a movie set. Do again? Once for the experience is enough.

This hotel is definitely expensive, but it has to be one of the best hotels in the world. The facilities and staff are just divine. I can’t complain about anything really - I agree with some of the reviews that it would be nice if a few more tv channels were available, but this didn’t impact my stay one bit. I didn’t use the tv behind the mirror in the bathroom but I thought this was a great touch. The staff went above and beyond to fit us in at the restaurants and bars and to accommodate our every room service request. The breakfast was surprisingly cheap and the Restaurant Rote Bar was so good we ate there twice on a three night stay. I loved loved the decor. Wholeheartedly recommend - worth the expense. Sacher cakes are delicious too!

We had a wonderful Christmas at the Hotel Sacher! Family and friends all together. Superb service, wonderful rooms and fabulous breakfast to start the day. Outstanding staff throughout the hotel. Very cozy Christmas feeling throughout. We all received special gingerbread houses in our rooms. It felt like home...but better!!!

I’ve wanted to stay at the Sacher since I read a sterling review of it in the early ‘80s. It took me 35 years approximately, but it did not disappoint. My wife booked us in for a couple days on Chase Sapphire points, and we were upgraded to a suite. A free room is great, a free suite is better. (The property has a good number of suites, so I don’t think upgrades are all that unusual.) The hotel is exquisite—in staff, furnishings, decor and location. It is an intimate affair—bigger and more luxurious than a boutique hotel, but not some dusty old monster with a massive lobby. Really perfect in all respects. We of course went to the opera across the street and dined at the hotel’s Rote Bar afterwards, which accommodated us readily without reservations. If you are in Vienna, you will not regret a stay here.

Hotel Sacher's greatest asset is its fantastic location opposite the State Opera House and its old world charm. Décor is magnificent. The service from the staff was excellent (particularly at breakfast) everyone seemed to no my name, even the door man when I arrived (never stayed before). However it is expensive for what you get, would have expected some movie channels on the TV, public areas and bar where small and difficult for residents to get a seat in them. I also had trouble in getting a table in any of the various restaurants, seems that the focus of the hotel is on non-residents, always queues in the evening at the café etc. admittedly it was Christmas, but the reception on arrival could have warned me about this or better still e-mailed me in advance to pre-plan.

When you hanker for a chocolate fix there is no better venue than this intimate grand eatery.. It houses Austria’s biggest private art collections and the lovely old-world charm of the restaurant Anna Sacher. Our room faced the Opera House, spacious and nicely furnished. All round, the nicest experience out of Vienna’s hotels

I stayed twice at the Sacher in December and both times I had really a practically perfect stay. The family that runs it clearly deeply cares about having a top luxury hotel run in an old fashioned (in the best sense) way. My rooms on both trips were beautiful, and luxurious. The second trip I was given a absolutely fabulous suite. It was just so very old world elegant. This would be the perfect suite - the doors that closed between the bedroom and living room - were like moving walls so that the living room then felt like a room. The views were onto the main shopping street which at holiday time is a winter wonderland. Everything is wonderful at this hotel from the staff, concierge, the restaurants (all of them) and the beautiful bar - just great service beautiful interiors and ambiance and truly perfect food. I am picky so I can tell you this is not a review I often write. I had the same experience in Salzburg - so really this is such a well run hotel.

Spent two nights at this hotel and wow what a hotel this. Rooms are large by European standards and very well heated - we were there late November. Bathrooms are large and the room very clean and spacious. Staff are very attentive and the location is great.

If you would like to experience staying in what is probably the best hotel in the world, please enjoy the Hotel Sacher in Vienna. There are other larger hotels but the Sacher's intimacy is just incomparable. The service level from check-in to check-out is just excellent.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights over Christmas. The staff at the hotel is wonderful and friendly from the door men to the waiters. The hotel was decorated beautifully for the holiday. The hotel is located right across from the opera house and you can easily walk to all of the main attractions. The rooms are spacious, nice, and very clean. The breakfast, included with our room, was fantastic. They had everything. Favorite thing was on Christmas Eve they left a gingerbread house in our room. It was such a nice touch.
