I really enjoyed this hotel. I'm not sure why it's not ranked higher on TA. It's perfectly located in the altstadt steps away from anything you'd want to do. My room even had a view of the steeple of St. Stephens. The room and the bath were spacious, well appointed and quiet. The front desk staff could not have been... More

This hotel is very comfortable and has a touch of class. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were very good indeed. The location is great - very close to the Stephansplatz and Kärntner Strasse. We found we could walk everywhere. We went in late June when all the outdoor cafes were open, which gave the place quite... More

Unforgettable experience Breakfast beautiful, silver cutlery, staff remembered our preferences the first day and following 6 mornings were serving us coffee with double milk, double coffee little milk, hot chocolate etc (there were 5 of us). The best coffee I’ve ever had – could be due to Vienna water but not even Sacher could match it. Next time will ask... More

The hotel was one of best we've stayed in Europe. Room was very big, comfortable beds and a large bathroom. The breakfast was very good and included with the room. The staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful. The hotel was very convenient to everything and we will definitely stay there again if we return to Vienna.

We have used the Kaiserin Elisabeth for several stays in Vienna, actually just around the corner from the Stephansplatz and Cathedral. The staff is incredibly friendly and supportive, breakfasts are delicious, but the rooms are just adequate. Some have windows over tiny courtyards or bare walls, as I recall on one stay. Those over the street can be noisy. It... More

Only two blocks from the cathedral, a more central location would be impossible to achieve. Most of the destinations in which visitors are most likely to be interested are readily accessible. Rooms are comfortable, quiet, and easy to reach from the old fashioned but apparently reliable elevator. Service is adequate, though the helpfulness of front desk personnel varies from one... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth during one of our recent trips to Europe in the fall of 2011.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
