Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna
Lack of attention to details
Unfortunately this Kempinski has lack of attention to details which are important in case of this kind of hotel standard: -Ipad provided in room is very slow when opening pages. -In room large breakfast picture on Ipad does not match the reality: there was no champagne on the table, instead of one boiled egg and omelette there was two boiled eggs, sugar was in sachets instead of nice sugar bowls, marble cake was also missing. -Room service is far from perfect,one day they can bring you water without night mat, next day you will find only night mat without water and so on. I had to make them a notice of those kind of mismatches every day. -We were told that Kempinski has a best breakfast in that part of the town which is far from the true, as for 5 star hotel breakfast is average and does not worth 42 EUR if you do not book it for the whole stay(otherwise 35 EUR).Yes,champagne is included if you are fan of Moet,yes,few Asian snacks from menu, but that´s it. Rest is average 4 star variety.Pita bread was dry, probably from last day, moderate choice of cheese, fish and meat, very limited choice of desserts. Fresh squeezed juices cheered me up a bit and the fact that breakfast is open till 2 pm on weekends. -Spa itself is very small,lack of air,pool area has only two beds and couple of chairs,showers are old and some of them are a bit rusty. Strongest side is the reception, I would give those people my endless respect and bow,they are professionals who are able to listen.

8.80€ for a bottle of water ?
Excellent hotel and location, impressive decoration in lobby and rooms. I stayed in a suite (Hansen) with 2 bathrooms. The bedroom is very nice with a comfortable bed. The main bathroom is top notch. Shower is rainfall and floor in the bathroom is heated. Both shower and bathtub is run by electronic buttons with a digital temperature settings. Toilet is with integral wash and dry facility. Every small detail has been thought of. Staff is amazing...very friendly and helpful. The service and concierge personnel are really nice. I also enjoyed wonderful spa with a great hydro pool. The only gripe is a (hidden) price of mineral water in the minibar: 8.80 € ? (10USD) The minibar price list is so well hidden that not even room service guy is able to find it... I know that this is 5* hotel, but still - I consider this very uncool.
