"Opulence and Stunning Piano Performance! "
We visited the 1873 Bar in the Imperial on a Friday night after seeing Mozart's Symphony Orchestra Performance across the road at the Golden Ballroom. We must have been in luck as there were two high back chairs positioned opposite a grand piano, which I can honestly say had one of the best Pianists I have heard in my life, apparently he has been playing at the bar every Friday for 25 years and it shows! We requested Claire de Lune and I was in tears at the effortless way he combined the melody with Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata-absolutely stunning and a must see if you are in Vienna!! To add to this the bar has some of the largest and stunning/ornate chandeliers In the city! A night to remember in beautiful surroundings!!
"As Always Exceptional & Wonderfule!"
My first time back in more than 11 years and this time as a family with our two little girls. The entire experience was not shortcoming of any previous visits. From the time of arrival to the time of departure the entire staff made my two little girls feel like princesses in a fairy tale; what more can a father ask for. The Front Desk team was exceptional with providing excellent recommendations for kids activities such as the children's museum at Schloss Schoenbrunn or just across the street the interactive Music Museum and much more. The Concierge with Mr. Grassauer and Mr. Denato exceptional in securing recommendations as well as a horse carriage ride from the main entrance of the hotel throughout the city. The newly renovated lobby with the bar was a daily treat in the afternoon listening to live piano music and on Friday evenings that live Jazz trio. Mr. Brunner took care of us daily at the bar. The Café Imperial still our favorite place for breakfast and Schnitzel. Mr. Hitner and his crew at the Café Imperial do an exceptional job. On departure my wife met the Director of Housekeeping, Mrs. Holzer, that she was convinced that housekeeping was run by ghosts. We never saw a housekeeper but each time we turned around or returned towels were folded and the room made. Also compliments to the Butler service and our Butler Mr. Meyer. There are so many, many, many more people to thank and compliment that truly made this visit to the Hotel Imperial an experience my little girls will never forget.
Magnificent hotel, comparable to some other big old institutions in Europe, such as George V or Bristol in Paris. Rooms with high ceilings, decorated in traditional, Viennese style. Very comfortable beds. Welcoming and attentive service.
We felt like we were transported back in time to the Victorian era. Beautifully preserved old style hotel. The rooms are humongous. We felt like royalty. Centrally located. The pastries and desserts served in the cafe was very good. The service also is top class. Overall worth the money .
"Another great stay"
I have stayed at Imperial quite a few times already. They have been quite consistent, good service and value. The hotel is close to the concert hall and opera house, just a short walk away and lots of good restaurants close by. Another good stay.
