I have been to this hotel 3 times over 30 years. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's not pretentious or enormous but is the real authentic hotel one block off Kartnerstrasse. The same people still work there and are attentive to your needs. Comfortable, great breakfast and fellow travelers are diverse and genteel.

This hotel is right in the city centre of Vienna close to the Cathedral and a great shopping centre that caters for pedestrians. We stayed here for 4 nights and the rooms were spacious and very clean. This is a basic hotel without a restaurant but they serve a good continental breakfast. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom... More

The hotel front doesn't look like much but once I entered I found wonderful, smiling, friendly faces greeting me at the front desk. The hotel is designed like a pre war kaisers residence with lovely, spacious rooms with lots of storage and huge bathroom. The mini bar prices are reasonable so I used it. Room service is very limited but... More

Very charming hotel in central Vienna which gives you a feeling of tranquility in the midst of the city beat. Time also appears to have stood still in terms of the interior design but - apart from it being part of its charm - the hotel is still very well preserved and maintained. The staff is very helpful and the... More

When I first arrived, I was semi-greeted and then the front desk guy kind of just slapped all the map and tour guide pamphlets in front of me with no explanation. The most he asked was if I'd like him to mark where to hotel is. It did not feel like a very warm and friendly welcome. Perhaps because I... More

We stayed at Kaiser Elisabeth in June 2014 and found it to be an excellent hotel and located perfectly close to St Stephans Cathedral, metro, restaurants and shops. Very comfortable room and amenities and the staff were great, especially Afshar who was very helpful on all matters. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone considering visiting Vienna.

We spent our honeymoon here and proved to be a great choice. The great thing about this hotel was the gentleman on the desk, who basically acted as tour guides. From giving us tips on great restaurants, to advising on places for us to see. Where local knowledge proved to be a great advantage. The hotel's location is a real... More
