Hotel Imperial
Karntner Ring 16
Vienna, Austria 1015

Distance from Hotel to City, 500 meters. Distance from Hotel to Vienna Airport, 17 kms (11 miles).  

The majestic Hotel Imperial and its sumptuous surroundings were originally created in 1863 as the Prince of Wurttemberg's Viennese residence. Overlooking the historic Ring Boulevard in central Vienna, the building was transformed into a hotel to accommodate discerning visitors of the 1873 World's Fair. Truly the palace of a prince, the facade is Italian Neo Renaissance with emblematic details.  

Atop the building is a stone balustrade that elegantly frames a group of allegorical animals from the Wurttemberg coat of arms. The portal group is dominated by four impressive statues that are equally symbolic. The original entrance, flanked by two stone sentry boxes, was wide enough to accommodate a two-horse drawn carriage.  

Inside the lobby, a Royal Staircase leading up to suites and rooms is lit by magnificent chandeliers that sparkle and shimmer from high stucco ceilings.  

The interior furnishings of the Hotel Imperial artfully show- case the 19th Century romance of Vienna with pristine marble, hand carved statues, and spectacular crystal chandeliers. The time honored Cafe Imperial has accommodated many famous authors and composers who penned their masterpieces while sipping coffee in the noble ambiance.
