In Vienna! Its lovely, all classical fašade buildings, beautiful Hapsburg palaces of marble and sculptures. Wide tree lined streets, elegant parks. Shan, the friend I'm staying with, lives just west, n east of the centre – I’m still disoriented! But so close to town, there is tram no. 0 at the end of the street, which links with heaps of other trams that go somewhere in Vienna so I can retrace my steps ...
Being one of the greatest cultural & historical capitals of Europe, Vienna is so steeped in history that it could easily have become a musuem rather than a modern city.
We were off to a city tour at 8.30am with a driving tour for the first hour and a walking tour the next with another hour to explore on our ...
... around the city, i went to a traditional coffee house and then went into a cathedral and then went on the tomb walking tour under the cathedral they had coffins and it was a cemetery down there, we then walked down a dark passage way and they had rooms full of hundreds of real skeletons and skulls and bones it was ...
... down onto you. We gave in and took the hop on hop off bus tour which proved to be the best decision as we covered the city and main attractions. The great thing about this city is the free toilets everywhere with chilled water to wash your hands and water stations all over the city where you can fill your drink bottle with iced water and get a fine dusting of water spray to cool down and all ...
The most important thing that you need to take away from this update is that The Great Gatsby is a fantastic movie. I highly recommend it. Whether you've read the book or not. Go watch it. Now.
I can't believe I've let another bunch of days go by without an update, because it's so hard for me to remember days past...seriously, I think I have a short-term memory problem. Every time I update these, I have to check with other people to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Imperial Vienna
The hotel is beautiful beyond description. The public rooms were nicer than those we saw at some of the attractions we paid to tour. The staff were not quite so solicitous as at some other luxury hotels we have stayed at [e.g., Claridge's], but they were perfectly polite and accommodating. Our rumpled khaki and polo shirt travel garb did not appear to faze them at all, and I did not get the impression that there were overt or hidden snobbery issues in operation. An added bonus: we were very fortunate to get a special discount of about 100 euros a night by mentioning AARP membership when we booked and pre-paying for our stay.
Using up some Sharwood points to get a discounted Elisabeth Suite, we stayed one night as a treat to round off our Austro-Hungarian tour.
What a wonderful place to visit. The hotel is just lovely and elegant-but not uncomfortably so. The service is top notch- whether for the delicious breakfast buffet or a nice interlude of cafe latte in the living room. The concierge was terrific and booked dinners at great places. The doorman could not have been more helpful in getting 2 cabs for our group of 5, or just greeting us each time we came and went. We had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend the Imperial to anyone.
Treated like royalty
Stayed for 5 nights over New Years and were treated like royalty. The staff did everything that one expects in a 5 star hotel experience and more . After a concert across the street they were waiting for guests with umbrellas outside the hall to protect us from getting wet on the 30 feet back to the hotel. The staff (especially Claudia) and service all surpassed our expectations. The only complaint we had was trying to control the room heating which was too warm for us most of the time. We stayed at the Four Seasons in Budapest and Prague on the same trip but the only hotel we raved about on our return was the Imperial.
Stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary for 2 nights in July 2004. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I, unlike other reviewers, didnt experience snobbery in the least. It would certainly categorise it as 'Very Posh' and not what I'm used to but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and found the staff nothing but helpful. We had our anniversary dinner in its sister hotel, The Bristol, a short distance away and the food was fabulaous. The bedroom in the Imperial was beautifully appointed and lived up to its 5 star rating - I would go back in a flash.
The room was very nice and the food okay, but asking the concierge for help was like standing before the principal in high school. I was there four days and was in their restaurant a couple of times each day and there was never a "Hello again." It was like walking into McDonald's. More like the anonymity of an upscale convention
Has snob appeal
Had a reservation for three nights, May 2 -5, 2004 but left after 1 night and went to Hotel Sacher. For $400 a night, I expected to have a room cooler than 74 degrees. (yes, I brought a thermometer) Management said that is how their A/C was and there was nothing they could do. They did us a favor. The service and friendliness (and rooms) at Sacher was fantastic. The room was the nicest that we had ever stayed in at Sacher.
Loved The Imperial
I stayed 1 night at the Hotel Imperial on the last day of an european holiday. This hotel is sensational.
If you have the money, spend at least 1 night here, the service is impeccable and the staff are great.
I payed 270 Euro for room number 422 for the night and it was money well spent.
Real experience in Vienna
Everything is perfect. It's like being send back into the good old days of royalty.
