Vienna is a city built for emperors and kings, and even if the royalty is not as common as it once was, the five star accommodations built for royalty are still (lucky for us) open for business.
Most of the top-notch hotels in the Austria’s capital are spread out on the Ring Road or in its vicinity. Conveniently, this is also where most of the famous sights are located, so you probably won’t need to use cabs during your stay.
After opening in 1892 the Bristol changed its location a couple of times but has now found a definite home at the prominent address Kärntner Ring 1. Russian composer Anton Rubinstein was the first of many famous personalities who got to sign the guestbook: over the years, celebrities such as Leonard Bernstein, Paul McCartney, Kofi Annan, Catherine Deneuve, Barbra Streisand, Leonard Cohen, and Shakira have frequented these rooms, enjoying the five-star luxury the Bristol has provided its guests for over a century. Make sure to check out one of the oldest American bars in town that is part of the venue – you never know whom you might enjoy your next whiskey sour with.
One could argue that Hotel Sacher’s most famous attraction is their torte that is carrying the same name and gets shipped all over the world in fancy wooden boxes. You’ll be set for dessert with their delicious chocolate cake. But patrons looking to satisfy their savoury taste buds won’t have to go to bed hungry as there are two restaurants to choose from – one of them offering live music and a gorgeous view of the opera house located next door. Part of the exclusive Leading Hotels of the World group, this one will not leave its guests disappointed.
“Vienna’s casual luxury hotel” is the Ring’s slogan and they hold themselves to it. By combining classical elements like the stucco walls and old tiling on the staircase with modern design features and a casual ambience, this hotel really oozes that home-away-from-home feeling. The hotel restaurant “At Eight” serves outstanding modern Viennese cuisine; Even if you are not staying overnight this is a highly-recommended dinner location. Part of the Relais & Châteaux network.
A hotel that was originally built for a duke cannot be that shabby; In fact, guests who have booked the royal suite will be residing in what used to be the private apartment of the former owner, the German duke Philipp of Württemberg. If the luxury of the quarter itself isn’t convincing enough for you, maybe the imperial butler service that is included in the price will seal the deal. Fancy balconies, bathtub whirlpools, chandeliers and rooms that are garnished with various antiques make up for the missing butler in the less exclusive room categories. For distraction, guests can choose between a restaurant, a piano bar with live music and a café selling the famous Imperial torte and a champagne breakfast on the premises. With all those in-house options, chances are that guests might never leave the hotel.
