We did not come to Vienna to stay in a hotel except to sleep. I recommend the breakfast buffet. Rooms clean and pretty. Shower was wonderful. Desk staff ordered taxis for us and were professional and competent. I will stay there every time.

My family and I stayed here in October 2022. Our experience could not have been any better. The room and the hotel grab you with an old-world charm and romance. The location is perfect, as it is walking distance to old town Vienna. The people of Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus were incredibly kind and helpful. I hope to return to Vienna soon, and will look to stay here as my first option.
