“Excellent Boutique Hotel in perfect location”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

Just around the corner of the main St. Stephen's Plaza yet calm. Very well managed hotel in private ownership. You feel the care.
Very friendly staff, helpful and polite.
Rooms are decorated in typical viennese style, wooden floor, chandeliers, oriental rugs. Big and cozy beds.
Overall experience is noble.
Breakfast selection very good.
Highky recommended- book well in advance in major months April till june and september-october.

Historic hotel (Mozart stayed here in 1767) in the heart of Vienna, a half-block from the pedestrian street that runs from St. Stephan's Cathedral to the Vienna Opera House. Walking distance of major attractions. Old World charm. Great breakfast. quite reasonable on-line price. Five minute walk to the U-bahn. Simply wonderful small hotel!!!!!!

I stayed at this hotel three times during my travels in central Europe. The staff were helpful and friendly (some more than others) and all basic necesseties were met ie good simple breakfast, clean rooms, etc. The one thing about this hotel is its amazing location, right in the middle of everything. Although it is wonderfully located in the thick of Vienna the hotel is a haven of peace and quiet and is very relaxed. I went by the recommendations on this forum when booking this hotel and I was glad I did.

I stayed at Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth on my visit to Vienna. I could not wish for a better location - right in the center and very quite at the same time. Also the staff of the hotel is exceptionally friendly.

We stopped over for 2 Nights in this lovely place after 11 days in Italy. The warm people were a complete and welcome contrast to the usually cold and unhelpful people in Italy
The location of this Hotel is Bang in the middle of the most happening shopping / eating area in the city center right next door to the St Stephens Cathedral
Everything was a stones throw from the Hotel - Including the Opera House and Hofburg
Rooms were pretty spacious and the breakfast was scrumptious
My wife and I enjoyed our stay completely
Mr. Pour at the front desk was really helpful and cheerful (He insists that the pronunciation of his name is Poor)
I am certainly coming back with my entire family (Kids included) next time

What more could you ask for? A beautifully and stylishly decorated, quiet and cool hotel, right in the centre of the city. Immediately we saw our room we boooked another night. The room was the largest we have been in on our European trip, with a large bathroom and very good air-conditioning, essential for the current hot weather. And the breakfast was included in the room rate. Good internet facilities with a printer. Plenty of eateries nearby. Very, very good and a delight to stay here.

We have come to rely on the reviews on TripAdvisor when choosing Hotels to stay and once again we have not been disappointed.

Location:
The Kaiserin Elisabeth is in a top location to explore Vienna. A few steps from Stephen Square and 5 minutes stroll through the mall to the Opera.

Service:
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Reception was well staffed, so they actually had time for a chat, which is brilliant to pick up little pieces of helpful information.
The breakfast buffet was very good with a wide selection bread, meat, cheese etc. As a matter of fact, staff were attentive and friendly ensuring that the buffet was well stocked even later in the morning. Tables were spaced in such a way that there was enough space to get to the buffet.
The hotel has two PC's for free Internet access and if you bring your own notebook you can connect to the WLAN. In our case I was able to access it in our room.

Room:
The room was big, clean and well maintained. It was facing the courtyard and therefore very quite. You wouldn't have thought the hotel was almost full.
The hotel had been renovated a couple of years ago and even after 3 years the bathroom is still in pristine condition.
If you want to be very fussy there was one point which bothered me a bit. Until app. one year a go the hotel allowed smoking and in the little entrance hall of our room you could still smell the smoke a little bit. But as I said I am rather fussy when it comes to the smell of cigarette smoke.

We can only recommend you to stay at this hotel it's very good value for money. We will stay at the Kaiserin Elisabeth again on our next trip to Vienna and hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.

A big thank you to ALL the staff at the Kaiserin Elisabeth, everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Cheers,

SwissScubaDiver
