This hotel is well maintained and very nice decor, The rooms are excellent. The location was brilliant, near enough to walk into the city (or get the underground) but far enough away so that it was very peaceful. It is about a 3 minute walk to the underground station and no more than 10 minutes walk to the Volks Park....

Stayed in a privilege room which we found a bit small, but is was ok. The hotel is in walking distance of the inner city and also close to all public transport. We found the staff to be very helpful, recommending local restaurants for dinner in Josefstadt which were close and very good. We also had breakfast at cafes which...

Good location. Staff for most part helpful. Breakfast not bad but poor value for money. Herr Lopez, at reception extremely brash and unhelpful. Would not stay here again. In my opinion overpriced. There are better places to stay in Vienna. Try the Theatre Cordiale close by.

The hotel was very good and the location too, not in the actual city centre but close. Quiet small street , but local transport near both tram and metro, and not impossible to walk either. Breakfast was fine and a good thing that it was served until 12 am. We got a very small room, but it was tidy and...

We had booked a king sized room and was very glad we had done so. It was standard size in my opinion so the standards must be tiny!

This place is perhaps the best and reasonable place to stay in and around Rathaus. It is also closer to many historical monuments and buildings. Hotel has hospitable staff and they were very helpful at all times. Breakfast served had good variety and was tasty especially the deserts.

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.
