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 theatre, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood 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 epicentre. 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 neighbourhood 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.

Our stay here was very pleasant. the staff were very friendly and aimed to please. The breakfast was nice and the bar opened til late. The room was a little small and the bed was not great, but it was what I expected for the price. It is within walking distance of the main city.

I enjoyed the hotel and the room (although it was small and had no tv). The staff was very nice and helpful. It was well located, with a bus line directly from Sudbanhof, where you drop off from the airport bus. Shopping streets and restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay

"Ask for a room with a little balcony, it helps when you can open the whole door to let in the fresh air."
"Maybe pay the extra for a triple room if you are after more space"
"Only have breakfast there if you can get away with not paying"
"Avoid a west facing room"
