... a little gem of a restaurant serving roast meats with sauerkraut (something I've been looking forward to) and the biggest dumplings I've ever seen. Think about a grapefruit and you're in the right ball park. I'm not joking! And went to bed with very full tummies...
The next day we thought we'd better get some culture so we hopped on the underground (which is extremely easy to use) and headed for Sigmund Freud's house. Although he was born in what is ...

The Sisi Museum was interesting, particularly seeing her clothing, accessories and jewellery. The Silver Collection also houses glass and porcelain. The impressive Habsburg (table) Service is 30 metres long!

We arrived in Vienna early this morning. Beautiful day again! We had a bus tour, then a walking tour of the old part of town. OMG... What can I say? It is absolutely beautiful! The old palace of the Hapsborgs, the cathedral! And no stay in Vienna is complete without a concert, in a ...

After a very tasty apple strudel, we did a very interesting tour inside Shonbrunn's palace with an audio guide. The rooms were stunning by their beauty and the richness of their decoration. The story of the Habsburg family, who reigned over Europe (and more!) over more than 600 years was also extremely interesting, while not that well-known to us ...

Along the way, vineyards blanketed the landscape from whole hillsides and valleys to tiny patches nestled between the highway and the train tracks. And, olive groves innertwined naturally with the grapes. We saw numerous sweet garden plots behind homes and even on little patches behind industrial buildings.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER Kaiserhof Wien Vienna
I stayed with my Girlfriend in Vienna for a couple of days just after NewYear. I chose the hotel b/c of the good reviews here on Tripadvisor in combination with a good price.
We stayed at the Kaiserhof in May this year and agree that it is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Our room was very cosy and the breakfast served in the mornings had the largest variety I had ever seen for a buffet!! The staff were exceptional: whether it be the receptionist on arrival, the maid, the cleaner or buffet staff - everyone made you feel welcome. The hotel is in a quiet part of Vienna (away from the crowds), but it is only a walk of approximately 15-20 minutes away from the Opera and pedestrian zone in the heart of Vienna. The Karlsplatz railway is nearby and you can basically walk underground to the Opera House to avoid crossing the roads. I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
We recently spent four nights at the Kaiserhof and could not fault anything. The staff were all helpful and pleasant, the room was large and comfortable, breakfast was consistently of a high standard and with a wide range and the access to free internet facilities within the hotel was most convenient for keeping up with e-mail contact. Our one room service meal was excellent and the staff readily attended to our requests for extra pillows and tea and coffee in the room.
A really cozy, friendly & service-minded hotel for a stay in style. Wonderful location, hospitable & caring staff, superb dining and lovely rooms. Don't miss the pleasure of staying here! For a nice price deal, you can try NetHotels.
Big Thumbs Up!
A truly lovely hotel with little touches that make it special. Free internet, slippers, sauna, library (with some English books!) - these things really make the difference.
The front desk is usually pretty frantic - but the staff are very accommodating.
The only down side is that the hotel is in a slightly dodgy area.
From our recent experience in Europe - you are not going to go very far wrong if you stick with the Best Western chain - and Hotel Kaiserhof will not disappoint.
With a grain of salt
I recently stayed at this "Best Western Premier" hotel. My single room was quite comfortable and like all rooms of the hotel it featured Broadband Internet Access (DSL). No provider needed, just plug and pray ... Charges were EUR 3.60 per hour or EUR 18.00 for a 24 hour period.
The breakfast buffet was a cut above most other hotels in this category. However, the smallish breakfast room quickly filled up at peak time. Staff was very friendly, with the probably inevitable exception to the rule. At the Kaiserhof it was the concierge who was dealing with the guests in a somewhat selective way. Overall, this hotel proved to be a very good and convenient place to stay in Vienna.
This place was just about as cozy as hotels get. Service was friendly, breakfast had everything you need (incl. champagne), and the location was quiet. 10min walk from the very center. The hotel had a nice piano bar/lounge, no restaurant though. Rooms were recently furnished and equipped with bath and minibar. Would stay here again!
A perfect stay!
This is a short walk from the center of everything, clean, really clean, nicely furnished, modern and a really, super comfy bed and large room. Excellent room rate and just quite simply a bargain if you're looking for something nice yet affordable. I would definately recommend!
A Great Vienna stay
This is a great small quite hotel not far from the main attractions of Vienna. Just a short walk around the corner to the Strassenbaun and to the U-Baun. It's off the Ring so is quite and private. The rooms are clean with large full baths. A great daily breakfast to keep you full until midday. Also the people at the front desk are most helpful and friendly. They can help you plan any tour package before or after you arrive. Also, the new suana with steam bath is first class. This is a nice modest hotel and no place for high class snobs.
