Value Score Poor Value
Good For Couples
Obligatory Iconic Hotel
Sumptuous and full of so much history that it's a must see kind of place. The look straddles a gray line between luxe trappings for the well-connected and well-to-do and, well, a high end bordello. That's the risk in a theme dominated by reds and gold.
Unique Quality: My stay was during a period of renovation, so I can't give any good testimonials...but upon completion I look forward to returning.
Superb Hotel in a Great Location
I booked the Romantic Package olnine which consisted of
One night in a Superior or in a Top Deluxe double room
One 4-course Candlelight Dinner (excluding drinks) in one of our restaurants
One bottle of Original Sacher Cuvée in the room upon arrival
Daily buffet breakfast
One Original Sacher-Torte as a farewell present
One Original Sacher Herz - pralines with a luscious hazelnut cream filling
Once we arrived at the Sacher, we were greeted politely, told that our room was ready, and we had been complimentarily upgraded. This was at 8:00am in the morning which is unheard of. All of our baggage dissapeared with the porter and we were given a personal tour of the hotel. After being shown our room, we went down to breakfast. The breakfast buffet at the Sacher had to be the best breakfast in Europe.
After returning from a museum the
champagne and pralines arrived and was outstanding.
Dinner that night was also very enjoyable. The wine list was excellent and the service was impeccable. They were also more than happy to substitute dishes on the predetermined 4 course dinner menu.
Overall, It was a great experience and every need was attended to. All the staff called us by our names, which was a great touch, especially as we were staying but one night.
Unique Quality: Great View of the Vienna State Opera.
In the middle of the pedestrian shooping area and across the street from the Tour bus office.
Where else can you stay and have the ORIGINAL Sacher torte?
Directions: Across from the Vienna State Opera.
Hotel and Coffee House. How Can You Go Wrong?
First, it should be clear by viewing the price of the hotel that I have not stayed here. BUT!! I have had their coffee in the coffee house that is attached, and is the reason for this place being famous. So, I thought I would research it a bit and then write a tip on it. This is a top-notch hotel apparently. It is rated a 5 star hotel by most internet sites I visited. I can tell you that it is in a prime location, not far from the Stephansdom, Viennese State Opera and metro stations, making everything accessible. Plus, did I tell you about their cake...
Room rates for a double start at 229 Euro, up to 1,300 Euro for a suite, per night.
Vienna is quite expensive, so...
Vienna is quite expensive, so be prepared to pay. If you want to be pampered, stay at the Hotel Sacher.
around 3000 Sc
Unique Quality: It is Vienna's most famous hotel and now home to the famed Sacher Torte (chocolate cake which everyone must try but I thought it was a bit dry). If you want excellent service and the finest Vienna has to offer, then this is the place for you. (Or, just stop in for the cake!!!!!)
Directions: It is located right in the heart of the inner ring (center of Vienna) on Philarmoniskerstrasse 4.

Shop Near Hotel Sacher
Many years ago I visited a small shop very close to the Hotel Sacher that sold handmade ceramics, including small ceramic Christmas trees that you could attach small candles to. I think it was a business that had been there for a very long time, and I wonder if anyone can tell me if it is still there and its name and exact location.
Re: Shop Near Hotel Sacher
I think I know the shop you are talking about, on the Kaertnerstrasse called Wiener Werkstaette. I used to shop there often, the last time in December 05. But when I was in Wien in October 06, I found much to my disgust that it doesn't excist any more. Unfortunately many of the wonderful old stores are being bought up by international chains which can afford to pay higher rents. Quite a few of my favorites have disapeared in the last few years.
Are you staying at a hotel? Most concierge personel is very good at helping you find the kind of store you want.
Re: Shop Near Hotel Sacher
Thanks for your help...sad to hear it is no longer there.
