The Sacher Hotel in Vienna is one of the grandest and most famous hotels globally, with a reputation that has survived many generations. Originally opened in 1876 by Eduard Sacher and still privately owned, the Sacher family and their hotel is part of Austria's capital's history and soul.
Anna Sacher made it fashionable with a subtle business mind and extrovert personality, building its fame and appeal around the legendary cake concoction, Sacher-Torte.
Moreover, her management and creative renovations attracted nobility, royalty, intellectuals, and artists worldwide. However, her support of impoverished aristocrats led to bankruptcy.
Nonetheless, the Gurtler-Winkler families who took over the hotel retained links to the Sacher family. They later acquired the sister hotel in Salzburg, restoring the Sacher name.
As a cultural and political center in Europe for centuries, Vienna has attracted many international figures. Likewise, the position, reputation, and sheer glamorous opulence of the Hotel Sacher have entertained many visitors.
In recent times, film stars and rock stars have been added to the list of notables. Among the names are British royals, King Edward Vlll, Queen Elizabeth ii, and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Besides, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco were visitors and many heads of state, including US President John F Kennedy.
Moreover, artists, authors, musicians, supermodels, actors, ballet dancers, and conductors have chosen to stay at this historic hotel.
Situated in Vienna's heart, the Sacher stands in its imposing Victorian grandeur in an enviable 1st District setting. The Vienna State Opera House nods to it from across the street, and fashionable shoppers pass by at the end of Kärntner Street.
Further, the Albertina Museum is a few moments from the hotel, and many other museums, restaurants, and places of interest are nearby. Also, Vienna International Airport is about a 40-minute ride by car or taxi.
The Sacher in Vienna and the sister Hotel Sacher in Salzburg operate with the highest standards of hospitality. Moreover, the staff is efficient but warm and welcoming, and concierge services are first-class.
The resort welcomes guests into a magnificent marble lobby, wood paneling, fine art, rich fabrics, gilt mirrors, and chandeliers. This is old-world opulence and splendor, yet the ambiance is a warmth where families feel comfortable and cared for.
150 elegant and stylish rooms and spacious suites grace the hotel. Individually designed, they feature every refinement of luxury with modern amenities. Additionally, they are spacious and light-filled with fine views, extravagant materials, and large and ultra-comfortable beds. There is also plush seating with an abundance of cushions, antique pieces, and fine paintings.
Single-color schemes are highlighted in patterned carpets, rugs, beautiful drapes, and silk wallpaper panels. Too, ornate lamps and crystal chandeliers provide evening lighting. Padded Ottoman chests and deep sofas, tall windows, balconies, and terraces add more luxury combined with state-of-the-art in-room amenities.
Besides, some Deluxe Rooms have views towards the Albertina Museum and the Vienna Opera House. Also, marbled bathrooms are standard and offer a range of chocolate-scented toiletries.
These have all the same benefits as the deluxe rooms. However, with more space, additional rooms, and extra features, the junior suites also have gorgeous fabrics, gilt mirrors, fireplaces, living room space, fabulous bathrooms, and fine views.
Likewise, the Signature range has fabulous décor in single statement color blues, greens, or pastels with sumptuous fabrics and fine furnishings, balconies, and city views.
This gorgeous top-floor stately suite affords a panoramic view of Vienna from a private balcony. Light and creamy-white décor is picked out in ruby colors on cushions, carpets, drapes, and lamps.
Other features are an art-filled hallway, fireplace, study and dining area, polished parquet flooring, and giant fresh flower arrangements.
Hotel diners are well served by several restaurant and café options. Three name/color-schemed dining rooms in crimson, emerald, and vivid blue offer Viennese and regional dishes a choice with innovative modern interpretations and gourmet menus.
Besides, Rote and Grune feature-rich damask and brocades, pristine white table linen, chandeliers, and impeccable service. The Blaue Bar, offering pre and post-dining drinks, is rich in brocades and Lobmeyr chandeliers with sparkling tabletops and deeply comfortable royal blue chairs.
These are the hotel's heart, showcasing the cakes and confections that make the Sacher famous in the coffeehouse atmosphere of Anna Sacher's heyday. Besides, the famous original Sacher Torte, invented by Franz Sacher, has never lost its appeal. The Café Sacher, Café Eck, Rote Bar, and the Sacher Salon still serve it today.
Guests rarely leave without sampling a slice of this indulgent cake, dense with chocolate and layered with apricot jam under a coating of more chocolate. Salon's fabulous 1920's style offers day and evening menus and traditional sweet treats, and a takeaway selection.
This beautiful spa facility offers ultra-luxe face, body, and full wellness treatments using signature 'Time for Chocolate' hotel products. Besides, exclusive Swiss facials, massages, and Caribbean cosmetics are available to hotel guests. There are also steam rooms, saunas, and relaxation areas.
The Day Spa also has a well-equipped fitness room with personal trainers on hand to work with guests on exercise programs.
Sacher Vienna welcomes children, and the 'Petit Sacher' kid's program is especially popular with visiting families. Surprise welcome gifts, special menus, activities, spa treatments, and bedtime turndown with treats all make a hotel stay enjoyable for young guests.
Several rooms are specially equipped for special needs guests. There is also wheelchair access in the public spaces.
The Sacher Hotel is a landmark luxury hotel in the city center of Vienna. It is also a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, a global marketing concern representing the finest accommodations in over 80 countries.
The standards of this group are high. What's more, the twin Sacher Hotels have survived and maintained these standards through conflicts, political and social changes.
In recent times, renovations revive yesteryear's grandeur and updated facilities to continue as a world-class hotel for the foreseeable future. As a result, Sacher-Torte will doubtless also continue to be enjoyed for years to come.
