We decided to spend a weekend in Vienna and chose Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus as our base. We couldnt be more delighted that we did, Arranged a taxi shuttle from the airport, he was there as we came out of arrivals, from the check in with the lovely Cora, the most helpful and fabulous check in staff I have encountered. Were given a free upgrade to a Junior Suite, thank you so much. This hotel is so lovely and close to all sights and so relaxing I would not hesitate in staying here again, Thank Hotel Josefshof and Cora for making our stay so wonderful.

Very good quality hotel. Comfortable rooms and good facilities. Very quiet rooms as we did not hear any sound from the other guests. Apartment had kitchen and dining area and there are supermarkets nearby if you want to cook your own meals.

Good hotel in a nice location

Pros: Great location, most sights can be reached within 20 minutes walk, or the Metro is 5 minutes away.
Cons: You have to request tea/coffee facilities for your room, but we weren't told this until check out. They should tell guests at check-in.
Location: Cafe Eiles for a light meal, and Coffee & Friends for superb coffee. The Natural History Museum and Museum Quarter and their Christmas markets.
This is a very nice hotel, with staff mostly welcoming and helpful. We had a superior double room, and the space was ample - perfect for relaxing in after a day out in the cold! It was nice and warm throughout the hotel, including the room, we never needed to actually turn on the heating in our room. The bathroom was excellent: large comfortable bath and very powerful shower, no shortage of hot water. Amenities are limited however: the generic body/hair shampoo fixed to the wall by the sink and the shower, a small tube of ineffectual body lotion, and a small hairdryer. The hairdryer is of the type where you have to hold down the on-button to keep it working, which I find irritating, but seem to be common in hotels nowadays. If you have difficulties with your hands (e.g. arthritis) you're better off bringing your own.

Vienna charm

This hotel is slightly off the beaten track and therefore very quiet. But...only 200 metres away is the metro and the tram or you can walk to the Inner ring road which is about a 10 min walk past the beautful government buildings. A perfect spot. The Hotel staff were charming, efficient and very friendly. The breakfast was lovely and again the dining room staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful. The room was quite large with a gorgeous, comfortable bed and decorated in the style of Gustav Klimpt, with painted Klimpt murals on the shower and bathroom glass doors. Loved it! We also bought a couple of Vienna cards from the hotel and used those to travel all aroudn the city on either the Metro, tram or bus. Great system and it works, but dont get caught without a ticket. I am not writing anything about the city as I would have to write a book. You simply have to go! It ıs filled with marvellous art, restaurants, cafes, museums, shopping, cathedrals, churches and most of culture and class. One of my favourite cities.

A quiet haven near city centre

Very nice welcoming staff and comfortable warm bedroom. Very quiet neighbourhood with practical bus and U-Bahn connections. Breakfast too expensive though, and no possibility of just having a coffee & croissant - you pay 17 euros anyway..
