Charming hotel in Vienna's city center.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 30, 2012

When looking for a hotel in Vienna, we wanted one that would be centrally located, comfortable with old world charm, and a reasonable price; and we found all that and more in the Hotel Kaiserin Elizabeth. Empress Sisi's hotel was a wonderful place to stay during our time in Vienna.

From the moment we arrived, the front desk staff was terrific. Friendly, professional and very attentive. They remained that way throughout our stay, offering suggestions on places to eat, directions to sites and things to do. Whenever we picked up or dropped off the key there was a smile behind the counter.

The room was terrific. There was a sitting room that was separate from the bedroom. A large sized bedroom with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was huge, with double sinks, a tub and a separate walk in shower. The room was located on the fourth floor and was very quiet.

The price for the room was reasonable and included breakfast plus free wi-fi. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Unique Quality: While there was no one thing that stood out, it was the overall feeling of traditional elegance that we enjoyed about the hotel. Everyone was polite, well dressed and really seemed to be there for the guests.

Directions: St Stephan's Cathedral area, right near the U-Bahn stop.

DON'T BE A SISSI! WHY NOT STAY HERE?

by written on July 2, 2005

The Kaiserin Elisabeth is a charming hotel a short stroll from Stephansdom, situated in a street that branches off from the swish Karntnerstrasse shopping boulevard. The building in part dates back to the 14th century...though the guest rooms are rather more up to date than that might suggest! In fact even the internet savvy will be able to find a connection within the hotel.

Breakfasts are good but those seeking night-time nosh should be aware that there isn't a proper restaurant on the premises. It is however just possible - though hardly recommended! - to leap from your room straight into the Drei Hussaren just opposite: and that just happens to be one of Vienna's grandest and finest restaurants.

As is so often the case with Vienna's oldest hotels , the guest list is full of past worthies, from Mozart to Wagner to Grieg and Liszt. It's name was granted by Royal decree in 1860, and enthusiasts seeking Empress Elisabeth the (much loved and sadly assassinated Royal beauty known as 'Sissi') won't have to look too hard to find her image! From what I've heard, the Kaiserin Elisabeth is one of the more affordable traditional establishments in this beautiful city and certainly one to research further...

Unique Quality: Splendidly Sissi!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth is my favorite hotel in Vienna as it has a perfect location close to Stephansplatz and Kaerntner Strasse and it has such wonderful furniture and a great atmosphere, reminding me a lot of the good old times of the monarchy.

Famous persons who stayed here :

1767 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
1838 Clara Schuhmann
1856 Franz Liszt
1862 Richard Wagner
1863 Anton Bruckner
1896 Edvard Grieg
1956 Oskar Kokoschka

and a lot more.
In 1910 the hotel was granted the priviledge to by called " Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth" by the Austrian court.

Unique Quality: Have a look on my picture and check out the link below.
And if you are a fan of Kaiserin Elisabeth = Sissi - you will find plenty of sculptures and paintings of her in the hotel.

NOT a cheap place , BUT a GREAT place with a unique atmosphere !!

200 Euros for the Doubble
75 Euro for a single rooms with shower are certainly a good price for what you get !

Directions: When arriving at Stephansplatz, Weihburggasse is the 2nd street on the left, towards the Opera.
