Travel Blogs from Vienna
With one full day in Vienna, we wanted to see some of the highlights and take in a concert before continuing on to Bled, Slovenia. We started the day with a 3-hour bus tour of the city's highlights. This tour took us by some of the most beautiful cathedrals, churches, palaces, and monuments in the city. In addition, we had a tour of the Schonbrunn …
Today we left Cesky Krumlov and the Czech Republic and headed for Vienna, Austria. We really enjoyed the Czech Republic. The people were really nice, the food was delicious, and the sites were beautiful. Driving out of the Czech countryside and into the Austrian countryside, there was a noticeable difference in the landscapes. Although both had …
All but Kate and Henry now in Vienna, they arrive today, Sunday. Lots of minor delimas, Jen lost her bag for 18 hrs (she wasgoing home or shopping, thankfully neither required) the Van der Vliets and Reynolds recieved the Qantas downgrade!
... and changed their options! So we're off to Bratislava, back in the Slovak Republic because Neil said it was good and the train did not leave us with a good impression of the place and we want to give it a second chance. It's a supply your own lunch day which is really unusual here so that means secreting away a few pastries at breakfast time and loading up with fruit prior to departure. Tell you the whole story tomorrow or if the place is bad it will be the 'hole' ...
... in a the nice Stadtpark; Mozarts house. We decided to remain and used the subway to return to the port when we were ready. Lunch was at the famous sandwich shop - trzeniewski - and you get a phiff of beer for 1€. Later we had a Vienna coffee and the sachatorte - chocolate cake.
Tonight there is a buffet dinner at 6, and it seems many are going to the Concert tonight, as we are too. Short note today but I have caught up again. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kaiserin Elisabeth Vienna
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.
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.
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.
