    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.

    ... restaurant was directly over the water with a full view of the opposite shore. Being clearly a popular meeting place and choice romantic spot we were quite lucky to get in on a Saturday night without reservations, but luckily they had a spot for us for at least 60 minutes. Funny enough another American couple also shared our fortune as walk-ins and was seated next to us, making it feel much less foreign. I ordered a local Zinfandel thanks to a donation made ...

    I ended up staying up until just after midnight watching the Red Sox win to stop their ten game losing stretch. I figured that while I have good wifi and the Sox were playing at a sensible time for me, I might as well take advantage of it. I'm glad I did. I then woke up at 6am because my windows had white blinds that did a horrible job of blocking out any light. In fact, I think it actually made the room brighter. ...

    ... took down the Christmas markets. Tim took the dog for a walk the other evening and discovered that they are still selling Punsch there. Great, just what I needed, more mugs...

    We are looking forward to the Olympics and being able to cheer for Team U.S.A and Team Austria! Austria rocks the ski slopes!

    We're off to Budapest for the weekend. Looking forward to some thermal spas in addition to beautiful cityscapes.

    ... of the shops have these beautiful window decorations with gingerbread houses, chocolates, sweets and fake snow. A bit like in Chocolat. People and cars just seem to converse seamlessly, with there never seeming to be direct separate areas for each. I had dinner at Gasthaus Pfudl last night, it's just around from where I am staying. I had tomatoes, rocket and buffalo cheese for entree, and then veal goulash with bread and wine for dinner. ...
