Schönbrunn Palace - easy on the train)
The hotel is right of the main shopping street with the Hofburg a 10 minute walk and St. Stephens cathedral less than 5 minutes walk.
Great buffet breakfast and friendly staff, the rooms are big and airy.
On the downside... we requested a non smoking room but the wardrobe stank of smoke and hence so did all our clothes we put in there.
The bathrooms are pretty bad - really old showers and useless hairdryers (the really old hotel style that look like hoovers!) that keep falling of the wall!
All in all the hotel was good the main plus is definetly the location, but if it is modern your after look elsewhere.
A great find!from Dbirkwood
A good breakfast started the day and the room had high ceilings and a seating area, plus a big bathroom. Very quiet at night too considering you were in the middle of the City.
Things you must see!!!...Zentralfriedhof by tube then tram..the largest cemetary in europe and the best statuary ever. Plus lots of famous names are buried there. It was like something from an amazing gothic film!! So big it even has its own bus service!
The underground walking tour of hidden Vienna...info via the tourist office. Tours are in english too and you go into the vaults under a church and see the remains of those that died at the time of Mozart...sounds gruesome but it was too incredible to feel creepy.
The Christmas market in the grounds at the entrance to the Schonnbrun palace..via tube. On the cold night it was the best market we discovered in the most amazing setting ever.
Hope you have as much of a good time as we did.

If you are looking for a hotel that is clean, friendly, well equipped and rooms that are well put together, then please do not look any further!
The Kaiserin Elisabeth is in the best location and within easy walking distance of everything in the inner ring.
Visit L. Heiner for coffee and lunches, 5 minutes away.
Perfect Place in Viennafrom A TripAdvisor Member
A Gem in the Heart of Viennafrom Whirlwind_Girl
I spent my first night in a room without air-conditioning and overlooking the street. That turned out to be a disaster for me. It was Friday night and there were drunk revelers outside all night long. I could not sleep with the windows open. It was mid summer and when I shut the windows, it became unbearably hot. At 5 a.m. I gave up and went downstairs to the hotel desk clerk. I told him that I had been up all night. He found another available room for me. This room was palatial with several huge windows that opened onto the courtyard. There was no air-conditioning, but I didn't need it. It was quiet, serene, breezy, and lovely. The third time was definitely the charm! I loved my room!
From this point on, I felt very at home. I stayed at the Kaiserin Elisabeth for four days. The hotel desk clerks were all men and made me feel very safe. You turn your key in before leaving the hotel and there is someone at the desk 24/7 to give you back your key when you return.
This was my first time in Vienna and I soon discovered that the Kaiserin Elisabeth is in the heart of the city. For the fashionistas among you, there is (or was, as of August 2004) a trendy, affordable shoe store, called Humanic, very nearby. I still pine for the white leather motorcycle-style boots I saw there. If only they had them in my European size, 36! There are cafes and restaurants all around the hotel. The subway entrance is practically at your doorstep.
As I was checking out of the hotel, the desk clerks told me that they looked forward to seeing me again and I believed them! I believed that if I came back in a few years that they would still be there.

A Great Choice. It was hard to leavefrom A TripAdvisor Member
I was a student in Vienna in 1970, and am fluent in German and know the city well. The Hotel Kaiserin Elisabeth is a real gem. I was sad to have to leave!
Top Local Tips for Vienna
Concerts, concerts, concerts and food There are no end of music opportunities in Vienna, and you can pretty much find what you like (and purchase tickets beforehand) on the internet. Also, if you're traveling with kids, check out Rosenberger's, a rambling family-style buffet restaurant near the Hotel Sacher
The Ringstrasse Tram Buy a 24 hour public transport ticket and travel around on the tram for a whole circuit using a map in conjuction with it. You can then decide what, where and when you will alight to visit places that interest you. It is very easy.
Try walking down the smaller side streets for good dining experiences! Don't eat in the main squares and tourist areas! Take a time to walk down some of the quieter side streets and you will find some amazing little dining places - especially italian and indian.
