A palace of Imperial grandeur
The wonderfully grand Hotel Imperial is Vienna’s most lavish hotel and has played host to royalties, composers, classical music lovers and discerning travellers in search of impeccable service and outstanding accommodation since 1873.
Uniquely located on Ringstrasse boulevard in the heart of Vienna opposite the famous concert hall The Wiener Musikverein, home to the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra, the hotel is ideally placed for discovering the city’s many wonderful sights.
Luxurious guest rooms and palatial suites are ornately decorated with precious antiques, chandeliers and sumptuous fabrics; suite guests additionally benefit from a personal butler service.
The Michelin awarded Opus restaurant offers contemporary haute cuisine, whilst traditional Austrian specialities, breakfast and the famous Imperial Torte can be enjoyed at the Café Imperial.
The stylish and cosy 1873 Hallensalon lounge bar is ideal for afternoon tea, cocktails and occasional jazz evenings.
We highly recommend..
Close by, in a 19th century Palais room, enjoy a 45 minute dance academy lesson. In a small private group to the strains of Strauss, you’ll learn posture and basic waltz steps under the guidance of an English speaking instructor who’ll recount entertaining stories about original waltzes and famed Viennese Ball season. Lessons cost from £65 per couple; advance booking with our concierge is advisable.
Not all facilities are complimentary and are subject to seasonal demand.
This former palace exudes grandeur; stay in one of the larger suites and you’ll have a personal butler to bring you morning tea in bed along with the daily newspaper
