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.

... on the list, also again other places that weren't on the list. One place we visited was some ancient ruins from the Romans, the only problem with this, was it was all covered in snow, and we couldn't really see it. Photos attached. Finally after a few hours walking in temperatures below -3 degrees, we finished our itinerary, and were back to our hotel. It was about a 15min walk back, and by this stage, it feels like our faces are going to freeze off our heads. We ...
... was cute, and though Hundertwasser put so much work into the design and colour of the apartment block, his work isn't as important as the individuals' ability to keep creating. I suppose in many ways the theories of Art Nouveau and of the Hundertwasserhaus are similar. They both value nature and natural forms, and both have a sense of freedom of person and of form. Though they have taken these theories to different places, the buildings themselves are beautiful in their own ...
The third stop was Vienna, Austria complete with Opera Houses and more than our fill of torte cake. In Vienna, we didn't experience as much in a hands-on manner like the other cities. Instead, we walked more than in any other town and covered the entire city by foot. Although we didn't go in as many ...
... Opera House was heavily bombed during the war, so parts are original and parts are much newer, and quite different in styling. We also got to see backstage, where all the huge sets are stored and moved about as needed. There is a different opera or ballet each night, so it involves a crew of about eighty people to keep it all happening as it should. Then, in the evening, we walked over to the Vienna English Theatre to see our play. We had assumed that this was probably ...
... a mind full of ideas about music, hoping to enhance their music experience in Vienna. There will also have many people who are enthusiastic about music. Like me, they come to Vienna to admire the city and the culture here. After the trip, I can have a more complete understanding of music. There is not only pop music in the world. Classical music can tell history, and fully express people's feelings. [A place to explore new ...
