Had the Eurovision Song Contest not have been on that week (which increases Hotel Prices) we would have stayed somewhere much better for much the same money. Breakfast is expensive for what was on offer. Staff were nice and friendly. Room was an average size.

I enjoyed my stay at the Josefshof Wien. The hotel is close to all the major sights, U-bahn stop and trams. Our room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. My only comment is there was no electric kettle in the room for tea or coffee. We ask several times for just a kettle and were told none were available. I... More

House/Location: The hotel is situated about 200 meters from the parliament and the ring. This way it is the perfect starting point to discover imperial Vienna. Major tourist sites such as Hofburg, Volksgarten, Museumsquartier and Burgtheater are reachable with 10 minutes walk. Vienna can be easily explored by walking or public transport. The next metro stops Rathaus or Volkstheater are... More

Some women receptionists are very rude. Very warm hotel. No air conditioner. It is the same food every day. Staff is not that helpful. The room service come at the time you take rest.

I am not sure how hotels in Austria are rated and how this hotel can advertise a 4-star rating. not that it bad, but it has extremely limited facilities. It is more like a bed-and-breakfast, than a hotel. For starters, there is no restaurant and the "bar" is a corner of the reception and staffed by the same people that... More

Very pleasant hotel, we liked our room which was immaculately clean and well appointed. Walking distance to the centre of magnificent Vienna. Parking was easy in nearby streets. Supermarkets close by. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Vienna. It is in a perfect location with easy access to the Metro and trams. It was only a couple of blocks to the historic center. It was on a quiet street, so no noise issues. The room was a little outdated, but everything was clean and comfortable. The room... More

We arrived to the hotel from the airport with S7 train and U2 line metro, we paid 4.40 euros per person. No need for a taxi, if you want to save... More

This hotel is very nice. the lobby is not too big but gives a sense of a respectable hotel. Our room was not too big but quit elegant. The most important thing is the location that is not far from the center and there are trains buses and trams nearby so it is very easy to go all around. The... More

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Josefstadt
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theater, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighborhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicenter. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighborhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
