Let's start with the location: it's perfect. Just across the University of Vienna campus (convenient, if you have some business to do over there). There are 4 tram stops that can take you to either Shottentor or Alsser Strasse U-bahn stations in no time -...More
Stayed in hotel 2 families for a night. Before going into the many negatives of the place, a positive bonus was that they let us keep 2 rooms for a late checkout, saying "we do not need them". As good as it sounds it has...More
We stayed in 2 hotels on this occasion and then we found the Josefstadt Apartments. We stayed in a corner apartment with lots of windows and space. Loved every minute - the apartment was well equipped with a Nespresso machine in the kitchen - especially...More

We spent one night at these appartments and then moved to a hotel in the centre of Vienna. The entrance is intimidating and looks like poor quality student accommodation. There is no concierge at the entrance just a carpet leading to a lift. Coming out...More
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.
