Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus

Mercure Josefshof Wien - Josefsgasse 4-6, 1080 Wien


The Josefshof am Rathaus is a cosy four-star hotel located in a quiet street close to the centre of Vienna and its main attractions. It is an ideal location, especially during the Christmas season, as the City Hall is only a few blocks away, where a huge Christmas tree is erected from mid-November and one of the most beautiful Christmas markets is held.

The tastefully decorated rooms with comfortable beds are spacious and in keeping with the category of the hotel. The friendly staff are on hand to help with any queries you may have. For families with children, there are self-catering apartments with a kitchenette. A supermarket is located near Josefshof am Rathaus, which will be handy for those wishing to cook in their rooms.

Breakfast is very good and includes not only the standard buffet but also strudel and champagne. If breakfast is not included in the room rate, you can pay extra for it. The breakfast room itself is very pleasant, with access to the patio where you can sit at a table and have a cup of morning coffee when the weather is nice.

The hotel is  child-friendly and there are cots in the rooms, highchairs in the breakfast room, you can hire a babysitter if you need one (all these items and services should be communicated at the time of booking). There are also good discounts on accommodation: a child under 9 can stay free of charge in the room with their parents (most room categories have a sofa bed).

Good place for a few days
Location in the city heart is not the main merit for this hotel, but if this is important to you, feel free to choose it as a stop. Other advantages you will find out already on the spot!
