Hotels Vienna Austria 2021: Where I Would Stay If I Was A Tourist

Hotels Vienna Austria. Where to stay in Vienna, which are the best places to stay in my hometown, and what about corona virus rules? This page bundles my personal shortlists of the best hotels and apartments by category I would use if I was a tourist in my city.

The best area to stay in Vienna, if you are short on time, is the city center, or first district. Since key attractions and best restaurants cluster in the ‚ÄėInnenstadt‚Äô you will never be more than five minutes walk from a town palace, top museum, elegant boulevard, gourmet eatery or romantic alley. To get to know Vienna‚Äôs best central neighborhoods opt for hotels in Josefstadt, Neubau, parts of Mariahilf and Wieden. They are also cheaper than those in city center spots. Indicated regular room rates for the categories below are per night based on two people in a double room. Search hotel by location: Click on the map below to search for hotel deals¬†by location.
