Built near the opera in 1876 by Eduard Sacher, the Hotel Sacher is one of the legendary hotels of old Europe, a hotel proud of its traditions and its antique furniture.
Over the years, it has lost none of its lustre. Never mind that the decoration of the 108 rooms and suites seems a little charged, with over a thousand art works, rich hangings, sumptuous bouquets of flowers and crystal chandeliers. It is timelessly beautiful, especially since its renovation by the French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. An antique atmosphere still reigns in its felt-clad lounges, reminiscent of a time when Vienna shone on the world stage through its writers and musicians.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono gave a press conference on peace from their bed here, and, according to legend, the Sachertorte, the famous chocolate cake, was invented here. A cup of tea at the hotel bar is a fine accompaniment to this intensely rich cake. Such luxury is obviously expensive, but the souvenirs you will keep of this opulent palace are something to cherish.
