Boutique Hotel am Stephansplatz
Let’s start our review of the most romantic hotels in Vienna with the Boutique Hotel Am Stephansplatz, which is not just charming but also incredibly well located – opposite St. Stephen’s Cathedral, one of the city’s must-sees. The interior is pure luxury and refinement; works of art, precious woods, elaborate design, and warm colours. It is sure to make you feel pampered.

If you are traveling to Vienna by car, paid public parking is available just 10 minutes from the hotel.
Hotel Am Schubertring
In the land of Mozart’s life (and Schubert death), what could be more logical than a hotel inspired by music? This is the case in this very original establishment, which is a real cocoon for lovers in the very centre of Vienna – close to all the main attractions. The drooms are elegantly decorated, and the establishment also has suites and studios on offer. For music lovers, the Hotel Am Schubertring is just a five-minute walk from the State Opera. This is the perfect place if your loved one is a music fan!
Hollmann Beletage Design & Boutique Hotel
Another romantic hotel in Vienna: the Hollmann Beletage Design and Boutique Hotel. We reassure you; the decoration is less complex than the name. It is modern and refined with a little oriental touch, and rather spacious rooms. In addition, the establishment is very well located: less than a two-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, three minutes from the famous shopping streets of Graben and Kärntner Strasse, and just 10 minutes from the State Opera. What more could you ask for on a romantic weekend?
After the modern, make way for the old, for history, even! Hotel Stefanie is the oldest hotel in Vienna, built over 400 years ago. As such, it is part of the Historic Hotels of Europe group, which protects European hotel heritage. Don’t worry, the rooms aren’t dilapidated – quite the opposite! You will find all the necessary comforts for your stay for two. Some of the rooms even offer a view of a small green courtyard.
Hotel Sacher Vienna
This hotel, too, is located near the Opera, and built in the Viennese tradition. The Hotel Sacher Wien is a safe bet among romantic hotels in Vienna, with its classic and elegant furnishings, but also its cuisine. The Rote and Grüne bar restaurants onsite serve traditional Viennese and international cuisine, and the Blaue bar is a popular meeting place in the Austrian capital. Finally, Café Sacher offers a classic Viennese coffee as well as a real Sachertorte, prepared according to the original recipe.
Hotel Imperial, a Luxury Collection Hotel
We end with a renowned hotel in Vienna, which is perfect for a romantic getaway but not necessarily cheap. The luxurious five-star Hotel Imperial, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Vienna is located on the Ringstrasse boulevard in the heart of the city. To enter this establishment is to step back in time to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The rooms, spacious and with hints of imperial decoration, have a breath-taking effect. It also boasts a gourmet restaurant and a twenty-four-hour rooftop gym, equipped with a sauna. The suites benefit from the service of a butler. A little historical anecdote, to pique your interest: the hotel was inaugurated in 1873 by Emperor Franz Joseph, as a Württemberg Palace. A stay here means offering your other half a piece of history.
