Numerous heads of state worldwide have visited the Imperial over the years. These include multiple celebrities, such as Charlie Chaplin. Hotel Imperial Vienna is the finest luxury hotel in Vienna, if not the whole of Austria.


Vienna is the home of many great classical composers such as Strauss, Beethoven, Schubert, and Mozart. Plus, over 50 opera houses and theatres are testaments to this great city as a significant center of art and culture. There is also the home of the Vienna waltz, with many original historic buildings still available and open for viewing and performances. Besides, it is the home of the Hapsburgs, including Maria Theresia.

The hotel was initially built in 1863 for the Prince of Wurttemberg. It is located on the famous Kartner Ring, impressing visitors and passers-by with a neoclassical façade. Key locations such as the Musikverein concert hall and the State Opera are just a few minutes away.

The Stadtpark, Albertina, Hofburg Palace, Karlskirche on Karlsplatz, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum are accessible via the famous Vienna city trams.


As one may expect from somewhere with such reputation and grandeur, the service is excellent. It has a sense of formality and courteousness as standard, emphasizing the historic nature of The Imperial.

Liveried doormen can be expected, and the guests are not disappointed by their presence and those of the well-organized porters. This helps to make the beginning of your stay a special one. One can also imagine the horse-drawn carriages of the past.

Butler service is available, even down to ironing the morning newspaper and running a bath for guests. Moreover, the waiters and the concierge are beyond reproach and as skilled and professional as anywhere in the world.

Parking and laundry services and free Wi-Fi for guests throughout the hotel are available. Children are welcome with many things to improve their stay. One of the rooms is also adapted for guests with disabilities.

Rooms and Suites

Walk through the lobby of Hotel Imperial Vienna with its crystal chandeliers, and then enter the rooms and suites. It is easy to see that the hotel was initially built as a palace, as this shows throughout the 138 guest rooms, no two of which are identical.

Opulent is the best word to describe even the most standard rooms available. The rooms, with stucco ceilings, are in an elegant classic style. This, of course, is with the modern comfort and amenities that discerning world travelers would expect from their stay.

The highlight of the rooms is the royal suites. It includes the opportunity to sleep in the former bed-chamber of Prince Philipp of Wurttemberg.

This is a typical dish on the European continent if not familiar in other parts of the world. There is also a range of Austrian wines available. As with many such restaurants, it is trendy. Therefore, it would be wise to book ahead at the time of the hotel booking. OPUS also has a classic 1930s-style ambiance.

When visiting, paying a visit to the Café Imperial is essential. This is a significant part of Viennese café culture, with its range of delicacies. These include the famous Imperial Torte, marzipan dish, and rich milk chocolate specially created to honor Emperor Franz Joseph I.
