      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.

      ... using local transportation. The market was bustling and we spent a couple of hours there. We had to head back to the ship, have an early dinner, and then head to one of the palaces for a Mozart and Strauss Concert. It was held in a huge hall and there were about 1,000 in attendance. The music was beautiful and there is definitely something special about hearing the Blue Danube performed in Vienna. ...

      ... of the Unknown Rapist or "Erbsendenkmal". It was built in 1945 by the Soviet army to commemorate the 17,000 Soviet soldiers that died in the course of the "Battle for Vienna". The plan to build such a memorial first occurred in February of 1945, before the battle had even started. Hence the reluctance of the Austrians to revere the memorial and with having to maintain it in good order.

Cake Bosses extraordinaire Audrey and Andy had each offered to make a cake for me, with Audrey responding fastest and winning the coveted duty. Somehow, despite spending almost the entirety of the last four days with me, Audrey had both found time to make the cake (which was a fairly ...

      ... As I may have said already, I've had two summers in a row (except for my 3 weeks in Germany, and maybe my week in London, haha!) so I'm actually kind of looking forward to a bit of winter. Sometimes it's nice to just be cool. Mecredi 11 septembre 2013 Ah a sad day for Americans today, September 11. I arrived and checked into my hostel. And I met my first Tasmanian in my travels! She's from Hobart, Sandy Bay!! Gahhh!! So we bonded over that. Then ...
