    Historical Traveler Reviews Kaiserin Elisabeth Vienna

    Far beyond average 4-stars, a real bargain


    Located just few steps from the St. Stefan (and the Metro station by the same name), the hotel is really in the centre of the City.

    The room is quite clean, and quiet, except for the callions of the St. Stefan, that bring you a comfortable wake-up call at every 7 AM :-)

    The service is far beyond average of the 4 or 5-star hotels : very reliable and friendly at the same time.

    The facilities are well-designed, practical, and fun to use.

    The hotel offers a free WI-FI LAN access in the saloon, and a free 10MB ethernet access in the (at least in my) room[s], which is still very hard to find in Vienna hotels. I wonder why it is not mentioned at all in the hotel ads.

    For those who want to try the local "specialité"s, the famous "Zu den drei Husaren" restaurant is in front of the hotel.

    Love Love Love this Hotel!


    I paid 100.50 Euros per night for this hotel by booking on the internet. I thought I was going to get a shady little place that was away from the city center. Instead I got this fabulous hotel. It is right off the ring. The staff and excellent. I had booked a tour and was late getting back to the hotel and they held the tour pick up for me. The breakfast in the morning was very ample with both hot and cold choices. The room was very charming. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

    Best Location


    This is a great hotel. It is right off of Stephansplatz, Kartner Strasse, and close to the Metro. We had a large room with king and 2 twins for our family of 2 parents, 18-year old son and 14-year old daughter. Room was large and comfortable. Bathroom was nice, no separate enclosed shower. The tub had a movable shower head, single sink. The breakfast was included and it was great, lots of bread and fruit choices, 2 hot items that changed every day, yogurt, juices, coffee, cold meats. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Their restaurant recommendations were perfect. We would definitely stay there again. It is close to everything.

    Loved the Kaiserin Elizabeth


    We picked the Kaiserin Elizabeth through the Internet and were delighted with this hotel.

    It is a very sweet, intimate, cozy hotel with an excellent location and charming, helpful staff. The breakfasts were ample and varied. It was truly a home away from home and all six members of our group would welcome staying here again.



    Cannot say enough about this fabulous hotel! The staff, the elegance, the breakfast and the location where absolutely perfect. I would return again.

    Loved the HKE


    Spent 5 nights at the HKE in October 2003. Hotel is wonderful. Great location. The front desk staff was very helpful. We had a suite, so we had plenty of space. No safe in the room, so had to use a safe deposit box, but this was very easy. Breakfast was delicious. Free computer use as well. Would highly recommend this hotel.

    Really liked this hotel


    We were very happy with our stay at the Kaiserin Elisabeth. The hotel is perfectly located, right near the Kartnerstrasse and St. Stephen's Cathedral. We stayed in one of the junior suites at 214 Euros per night, but we were given one night free over a winter weekend bringing the rate way down. The room was great, very large and a beautiful bathroom. The breakfast (included in rate) was truly superb with choice of pastries, meats, and fruit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    So we knew Hundertwasser had an association with New Zealand, but had no idea how deep this went. He made several visits to NZ, spending much time painting there, gained the New Zealand nationality and ...

    Sandy's research last night paid off. She decided that she'd like to go to the Vienna Time Travel Museum. A quick chat to the concierge and we had some tickets (plus tickets to tomorrow's sold out Cosi Fan Tutti show).

    It was very clever, it started normally enough with lots of posters and a tour guide explaining the history of Vienna. Then you move into a movie theatre, strap ...

    We met Andrea, our tour guide and then off we set to see the sights of this beautiful city. Prague is split into four towns, Old And New Town and Little and Castle Quarter. As Prague suffered less destruction than most major cities in World War 2, the historical architecture is still in tact.
    Prague Castle stands on a hill and from there we had a magnificent view of Prague. Charles Bridge a stone bridge built in 1870 links ...

    ... Wiener Deewan – a Pakistani restaurant, specifically for university students and cheap travellers – where you eat as much as you want and then pay as much as you wish! I had read about it in a brochure back at the hostel and had just overlooked it, deeming it to be an obvious gimmick. Inside was packed, literally packed, with students and their overflowing plates of curries, rice, bread, salad and more curries. We asked the owner how much we were meant to ...
