Hotel Sacher is located in the very heart of central Vienna. Being the only independently owned five star hotel in Vienna, this hotel is somewhat of a destination in its own right; and is a very popular location for both travellers and locals alike.

As soon as we arrived we were instantly relieved of our luggage, which was stored for us whilst we checked in. We were escorted through to the reception desk which was found tucked away in a charming room, adorned with a row of smiling staff ready to greet us and introduce us to the hotel.

Following this we were soon escorted up to our room on the 6th floor, via the wall of fame of previous guests that included many a famous face such as Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss, Hugh Grant and an array of famous Austrians.

“The real secret of this hotel is the original Sacher-Torte, which is an extremely famous dessert of which the original recipe has been safeguarded at the hotel since 1832.”

We were staying in the Mannon Suite, which embodies everything it means to be in Vienna, with floor to ceiling French windows we couldn’t help but gasp upon entering and being greeted with such impressive views over the neighbouring buildings. The bathroom in our suite was very spacious and beautifully designed with his and hers wash basins, a separate walk-in shower, and a gorgeous bath tub with polished silver fittings.

In terms of further facilities Sacher offers a spa where you can indulge in a massage, or make the most of the Hammam and sauna. And for those looking to work out whilst staying, you will find a well-equipped fitness room.

Sacher’s restaurant offering certainly doesn’t disappoint, with two restaurants on site - Anna Sacher and Rote Car - as well as Café Sacher, which offers lighter meals. You’ll also find a fantastic drinks menu at Blaue Bar. Although, the real secret of this hotel is the original Sacher-Torte, which is an extremely famous dessert of which the original recipe has been safeguarded at the hotel since 1832. This unique chocolate cake is sure to guarantee a good queue around the block every day.

I feel it’s important to note that the service throughout our stay was absolutely flawless. The staff were knowledgeable about Vienna and had obviously undergone comprehensive training, with their demeanour and overall manner being simply impeccable. This, for us, is what makes the hotel a five star experience.

It’s fair to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Sacher; we would return to in a heartbeat, and not just for the Sacher-Torte. Everything from the incredible rooms and facilities to the fantastic staff and the general atmosphere of the hotel exuded total luxury and that is what makes this hotel really stand out.
