Our room and bathroom was spacious and clean the bed was very comfy. The room was warm and we didn't find it noisy at all. The room was just as it was shown in the pictures and there was a tasty selection of food at breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is located a few stops on...

This is second and last time. Even great location and somewhat nice style, place is getting old and quality is not any special. Bathroom is very basic. Rooms has no soundproofing at all. Mostly doors. Nice tall old style. But you hear (just right now), all the noice from the lobby, corridor and dining room straight to your bed. Just...

This is a family owned business and the staff we met were simply lovely. The Pension is on the first floor of an apartment block. It does have a few stairs, but a lift is there as well. It's not a 24/7 manned situation. Depending on the time, you will get instructions on how to retrieve your key. It was...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and found it to be a gorgeous, easily accessible hotel within a short distance of the city centre. The hotel benefits from a wide range of local restaurants including Italian (amazing pizza), Indian, Lebanese and traditional Austrian. It also was very accessible in terms of transport with a nearby metro station and...

Funky, cosy boutique hotel about 10 minutes walk from Rathaus metro station. Reception is only manned a few hours a day, but you can access your room at any time. Good selection of food at breakfast. Fairly quiet street.

the room was spacious and nice but it was not extremely clean (the floor was not cleaned before we arrived, the couch was dirty and the drapes were really dirty). The breakfast area is really cute and you could see that they put some taught into it. There is nice selection of breakfast food and coffee. The entrance area is...

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are spacious and very well kept. The breakfast was well done with a nice selection. If you like to walk- we do, you can be at St. Stephan's in 30 minutes. Or, mass transit is nearby if you prefer riding it.

We stayed at the Urban Hotel Columbia (or Pension Columbia) for a city break. It was well located and easy to get to - about a 10 min walk from the Rathaus U-barn. It has been recently renovated and the room was light, airy and comfortable. The breakfasts were buffet style and were fantastic - meats, cheeses, cereals, eggs, toast,...

This accomodation just feels like home. I arrived in the evening and had information sent about how to get in. The moment you enter the Columbia you feel like entering a huge city apartment of your own. Every corner displays tasteful details, the breakfast room and the meal is just gorgeous with home-made bread, cake and jam. The rooms are...

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighborhood Profile
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.
