An amazing hotel

Pros: the ambience
Cons: the bathrooms in the rooms/apartments
We stayed at Imperial hotel in September and i have to say that I was really impressed. The hotel is very beautiful and classy. The staff was friendly and attentive at all times. Our room was spacious and immaculately cleaned every day. The only downfall was the bathroom. I think they need to upgrade their bathrooms in the rooms. Apart from that everything else was perfect. We will definitely go there again next year.

Classic of Vienna

Pros: Is one the most traditional hotels in Vienna
Cons: The hotel is very old and is in need of a refurbishment
Location: Very well located, walking distance of the main attractions in downtown Vienna
I'm very satisfied with my stay. Very well located, friendly and great staff, spacious rooms, confortable beds. It was my birthday while staying there and they gave me flowers and an Imperial cake as a present. It was a very nice detail

Five Stars Without a Doubt

Built in 1863 as a city palace and it still looks like one inside. The Imperial must be one of the world’s most attractive hotels and is frequented by pop and film stars and the world’s leaders. The standard (classic room) rooms, one of which I had are very nice and reasonably spacious, the junior suits are excellent and the Royal Suite is just breath-taking. The mattress, pillows and lining were exquisite. My only complaint with my room was the bath with shower attachment, was difficult to use solely as a shower. The space between the bath’s wall and shower curtain was narrow and the shower attachment was very awkward to direct. The cold curtain often stuck to your back. My room did not have a view, but those that did only overlooked the ‘Ring-strasse’ a rather busy road. In terms of location the Hotel is in easy walking distance of the centre of Vienna. The hotel could be accused of looking so regal, that it might be interpreted as somewhat ‘stuffy’. However the friendliness and helpfulness of every member of staff was second to none. The Restaurant was probably excellent, but of course very expensive, so I never tried it. The Café, which I did try several times provide very high quality cakes, snacks and meals. Although the prices were a little higher than ‘in the street’ the quality of food and speed of service was excellent. The Hotel had an attractive bar open until late. Now even the rich like a bargain. Hotel breakfast was a rather steep 39 Euro’s per person. Next door was a McDonald’s with a McCafe, providing a surprising range of health options. In fact you could have a good breakfast for 3.99 Euros, so why spend 39? The hotel is not cheap, but you DO get what you pay for!

Location: Loistava sijainti, raitiovaunut, bussit, kiertoajelut lähtevät aivan vierestä.
Palvelu ensiluokkaista, yleisilme huipputasoa. Ravintola ja baari tarjoiluineen laatutasoa.

Hyvä sijainti, lähellä Kärntner strasea.

Pros: Hotelli oli paras missä koskaan oltu. Ammupala kuului hintaan mikä ei ole itsestäänselvyys Wienissä. Kaikki upeat museot kävelymatkan päässä.
Cons: Ei mitään.
Location: Hotellin vieressä Stad Opera, Kärtner Strase, Modernin taiteen museo. Oikeastaan kaikki on kävelymatkan päässä.
Wien on mitä parhain kaupunki euroopassa. Menemme uudelleen ja samaan hotelliin jos on edulliset tarjoukset.

Ein Unikat, sehens- und erlebenswert!

Pros: Einrichtung und Liebe zu guten Service
Cons: Die Fassade könnte mal wieder gesäubert werden.
Location: Zentral in Wien, fast alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in Laufnähe.
Das Traditionshotel Imperial ist ein innenarchitektonisches Kleinod und jedem, der echten antik-traditionellen Prunk bewundern möchte, wärmstens zu empfehlen. Allein diue Auswahl an antikem Marmor ist einen Besuch wert, so etwas kann man heutzutage nirgends mehr abauen geschweige denn erwerben. Ich kenne viele "alte" Hotels auf der ganzen Welt, aber dieses hier sticht in seiner Art hervor.
