The 4-star Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus is located in a quiet side street in the charming „Josefstadt“ district and impresses with its imperial flair and Viennese charm. The hotel is close to Vienna's city center and within a few minutes walking distance from Vienna's most famous sights: Vienna city hall, Vienna imperial palace, the museum district and the shopping street Mariahilferstraße. Our rooms are equipped with modern facilities and bookable in two different styles: While our main building presents a touch of imperial Vienna, our art nouveau building stages a loving homage to the great artists of this time and their most famous motifs. Wi-Fi is available free of charge in the entire hotel. A rich breakfast buffet is served every day between 07:00 and 12:00 and includes a selection of coffee and tea specialties, homemade cakes and pastries, fresh fruit and juices. Our hotel bar is open around the clock and offers hot and cold drinks, Austrian wine, classic drinks and small snacks

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.

Stayed here for the weekend while on business. It is nice and the location is great. But we found the staff wasn’t very helpful. I was off put by the staff when I first arrived and it never got any better. I did the “don’t clean my room and get a free drink” offer but never

Hotel staff was very nice and patient. They were very helpful getting us to where we needed to go. They helped us when we had questions on which metro station to get to Vienna Central Station. Easy location to get to places for us.

Unfortunately I made a mistake when booking the hotel. I had to cancel within an hour, 39 minutes exactly. They took a whole night stay for this mistake. I wrote them an email, but I got no answer. I tried later through Expedia, but also this didn't work.
