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.
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.

... for it! We emerged from our underground parking garage into a strip mall and followed the street to the park. Skirting past the post office, we entered the palace grounds...which just seemed like a city park in a modern city with joggers and people pushing strollers down the paths. Before long, it was more evident that we were walking through palatial grounds. The trees opened up to several gardens, a zoo, and ...

I think we might just do room service for dinner tonight and give him a chance to get over it. Tomorrow we have an early start and have to have our bags out by 7am and I think we’re on our way between 8 and 8.30am.

... The bigger books were on the first shelf near the floor, some of these big books were as big as the books teachers used to read in Prep so that all the kids could see. These big books were followed by smaller and smaller books as each shelf got closer and closer to the roof of either the first or second floor. Some of the top shelf books were tiny and reminded me a little bit of ‘the little book of calm’ in Black Books.
However, the incredible room and ...

It's also 46" wide and was less problem getting home on the bus than we thought it would be. We were also sure it wasn't going to fit into the elevator, but on the diagonal, it just squeaked in.
