Imperial Vienna


Former Palace, Hotel since 1873.

The former private palace of the Duke of Wuerttemberg, completed around 1866 and never inhabited by the duke, was converted into a hotel for the 1873 world exposition, held in the Austrian capital Vienna. It is one of the legendary palaces along the Ringstrasse, the boulevard that circles around the inner city.

Today the Imperial is Austria’s most luxurious palatial hotel. It’s not only a luxurious hotel for the discerning traveler, but also serves as a ‘guest house’ of the Republic.

The staff is wonderful, the atmosphere very impressive, yet relaxed and comforting. It is the traveller’s choice for a great occasion.


“Stay at the Imperial and feel like an Emperor.”
Charlie Chaplin

Completed in 2014, the ground floor of the hotel underwent a centenial renovation and remodelling process. One of the main axis is the Path of History, presenting the history exhibition of the hotel (see also In February 2016 Starwood Hotels sold the property to UAE business group Al-Habtoor.
