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.

... twice. The Lipizzaner or Lipizzan breed was developed with the support of the Habsburg nobility. The ancestors of the Lipizzan can be traced to approximately A.D. 800. Until the 18th century, Lipizzans had other coat colors, including dun, bay, chestnut, black, piebald and skewbald. However, gray is a dominant gene. Gray was the color preferred by the royal family, and so the color was emphasized in breeding practices. While we were peeking at the horses, a large tabby cat came over so ...

It's only polite. We're ...
... to see all that we missed. There is only so much you can do in a couple of days and I was rather exhausted tonight (must have been the 8km yesterday and 5.5km today!) so Peter went out hunting and brought back some rather good Chinese food to our room. And, yes, he got the life story of the Chinese lady in the shop!!!
So now a couple of days travel via Zurich into Italy where we will have a slow down and quieter time beside Lake Como. Well, that's the plan!
... ceiling. The floor was covered with what looked like sand, but probably wasn't. At first it kind of reminded me of seeing the "Tournament of Kings" in Vegas. But this was much nicer. And I didn't think there would be any sword-fighting or half-naked maidens.
Our tickets were for standing-room only, but that was actually fine. There was only one row of seats, and only between the huge columns. And there was only a narrow walkway behind the wooden chairs. So we got ...
... soccer game and people got a bonfire going in the pit out by the vineyard. We had many, many bottles of presecco (look it up) that all of us enjoyed throughout the night. They extended drinking hours for us to 1 am, so I guess they were encouraging a very social gathering? Unfortunately, the US lost but it didn’t matter to me that much. I was focusing on spending one last night with my friends. We all had a great time hanging out at the bonfire after the game, and even when they ...
