“Fantastic Location in City Centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

This was our first visit to Vienna and we stayed at this hotel based on recommendations on TripAdvisor. We agree with all of the reviews. The location is perfect for touring the historical sites of Vienna. The hotel service and staff were excellent. The breakfast buffet each morning was very nice. The hotel was completely booked and we encountered only one day when we had to wait for a table. We used the hotel's chauffeur service to and from the airport. This service was on time and very professional. The only negative feedback on the hotel is no bar/lounge or restaurant in the hotel. There are however, plenty of bars and restaurants within the same block of the hotel.

This was my second stay, previously a week in April 1986.
This time for two weeks.
As the trip was very important in terms of my family background, the service I received was greatly appreciated and I intend to return for another two weeks next year.

Stayed November 2012, travelled solo

Central location, lovely hotel, large room, friendly staff - all that one would want in a hotel during a holiday. The location is perfect, just off Kartnerstrasse, the main shopping street. This means that all the tourist spots in the city centre are within walking distance. The metro is close by, as are many cafes. The breakfast could do with a little more variety, but I guess that's a matter of opinion. Overall, the perfect choice for a short holiday in Vienna!

We were thrilled with our choice of hotel. Our room (a Superior Double room) was bright and airy. The paintwork and soft furnishings were in pristine condition. I had asked for a quiet room at the back and this request was met. The King bed was large and comfortable. There was a desk with chair plus 2 more chairs and a small table. There was ample cupboard space with shelves and plenty of coat hangers. There was a good long mirror and in the well lit bathroom there was a small make up mirror which I always appreciate. The bathroom also had ample bench area to put toiletries on. There was a shower as well as a large bath. The shower had good pressure. They don't supply soaps but use soap dispensers so if you like soap, as I do, bring your own. Also they don't supply face washers so bring your own if that is important to you. The hairdryer was fairly useless and I was glad I had brought my own.
We found the service excellent although I must say, I had booked a transfer through the hotel and no one was there to meet us at the airport after our 27 hour flight which was a bit of a downer! We rang the Hotel and they were very apologetic about the mix-up and sent a taxi straight away.
We found the location of the hotel fantastic. This is a really important factor for us when choosing a hotel. It makes for a relaxing holiday when all sights and transport are close by. It may cost more to stay in the centre of cities but it is worth it. We only had 4 nights in this wonderful city and didn't want to waste time commuting to the centre all the time.
The breakfast room was lovely and there was plenty of choice.
We found Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth a fantastic choice for us. The room and facilities were big enough so that we could spread out and store all our luggage and possessions rather than live out of a suitcase (because there's nowhere to put anything!)
We would definitely stay there again if we were ever lucky enough to visit Vienna again.

We recently stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. The room was spacious and although the main pedestrian mall is within 100 metres the windows when closed block out all noise. Reception was good and angie in the breakfast room was a whiz at knowing your particular preferences. The metro was 1 minute walk or 10 minutes to the next line. A beautifully decorated and presented hotel. One minor point is to clarify the difference between sent out washing and dry cleaning. Our washing was dry cleaned and the bill was large. Otherwise this was a very pleasant stay.

The Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth exceeded all our expectations.Check in took about 3 minutes.
We stayed there for 6 nights. We booked a superior room there was more than sufficient sitting area plus a desk. Bathroom was clean with both bath & seperate shower. The location was quite. The breakfasts were more than sufficent.
Location was superb 2 minute walk to pedestrian area and 4 minutes to Stephandom
Would highly recommend

Room Tip: Our room 313 was great. No swimming pool and breakfast only which was more than sufficient

The location is in the heart of Vienna. Only 2 blocks from St. Stephan's Cathedral and the metro station. Our room was perfect with a oversize tub with shower in the bathroom. Breakfast was included and the food quality and selection was wonderful ... complete with a very friendly wait staff . Hotel desk staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay there again and recommend to friends and family. The location was PERFECT! 3 nights in mid September 2013

Room Tip: We were on the 1st floor (Second floor American) just above the entrance to the hotel. We found the...
