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.

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.
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.

... went up and had a great horse and carriage ride which was great, picked out all the amazing buildings including town hall, prime ministers residence, natural history museum, art gallery, etc We then went to the 7th district which is pretty funky to find a cafe recommended by a friend. Was a bit smoky so we found a pub / cafe nearby and had our second Snitzel!!! For ...
... Helles beer.
Our next destination was a very unique-looking building that I had seen a picture of in a non-Rick guidebook, and really wanted to see it if we had time. Unfortunately it wasn't centrally located on an U-Bahn line like everything else. But it still wasn't too hard to get there. We had to take the U-Bahn up near the Vienna Canal, and then take a tram near the building.
The building was an apartment block built in 1985 ...
... a good starter for the next day.
We woke early and got our asses into gear and got up early to make scrambled eggs. We met our tour guide at the hostel and we head onto the trains out of Vienna for our Grape Grazing tour! We spent 40 minutes on the train heading into the countryside, we made a friend Caroline on the train ride. After we got all our bikes in order we set off for our ride through the Vienna wine region in the Wachau Valley. The views were stunning and we were ...
After waking up at 6:30, the Irish country side blanketed in a thin layer of snow, to catch a bus back into Dublin, our Irish Adventure was coming to an end. After figuring out the different rules for European baggage rules (which are extremely different than America's: did you know that a carry on bag has a weight limit? me either) we took a bus out to Dublin to see the city one last ...
... now, so wasn't particularly exciting. Best part about it is when you get to the end and you can see the reflection of the cathedral in the reflection of a modern glass building at the end of the street.
St Stephen's Cathedral is crazy! It's huge and has a weird tile roof. One end of the cathedral is a huge tower that dwarfs everything around it, but the other end never got finished and got cut short with a little hat. It's still amazing though and much bigger and ...
