Set amid the cultural diversity of Vienna is Hotel Sacher Wien, founded and inaugurated in 1876 and home to the world-famous Sacher-Torte, a famously indulgent chocolate cake created by Franz Sacher himself.
The hotel is strategically situated in the heart of the city with perfect access to the shopping streets and sites of historical interest such as the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Spanish Riding School, the Albertina Gallery and St Stephen’s Cathedral.
To suit the exemplary standards and facilities at Hotel Sacher Wien, the 149 rooms and suites—ranging from standard rooms up to the penthouse suite—come bathed in soft colours and equipped with modern technical amenities. Each room and suite boasts original paintings, antique items, precious rugs and silk wallpaper. Meanwhile, the penthouse suites are equipped with private terraces offering stunning views of the city centre.
Other than the hotel’s exquisite rooms and suites, hotel guests can indulge themselves in the free spa and gym facilities at the Sacher Spa. The facility features a traditional sauna, a salt steam bath, herbal baths, sensory showers, ice fountains and a meditation room. Professionally trained therapists use prestigious brands such as St. Barth, La Prairie and the hotel’s signature “Time to Chocolate” to provide personalised services and treatments.
No occasion is ever complete without a sumptuous meal. On this note, the restaurants at Hotel Sacher Wien treat guests to an unforgettable journey through international and Austrian cuisine at its best. For a more upscale, fine-dining selection, the Anna Sacher and Rote Bar have been awarded by Gault Millau—the influential French restaurant guide. Meanwhile, The Blaue Bar, Sacher Eck, Café Sacher and Sacher Stube cater to crowds in search of great food and, at the same time, great drinks with a laid-back ambience.
