The halls are a little dark and ominous but overall a lovely hotel

I like that it is situated at a walking distance of several Museums and Christmases Markets.

Excellent experience lovely hotel! They even gave us a portable myfi device which made our stay a lot better as we were able to have internet connection everywhere in the city.

Hotel Josefhof am Rautaus can be best described as a theme park of Gustav Klimt, as Klimt's art works can be seen almost everywhere in the hotel. (For example, the bath glass door in our room is printed with the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II.) In a nutshell, this hotel is a must-go for art lovers and people who love Klimt. In addition, the staff were helpful when we checked in, even when we arrived on the day of Christmas and there are quite a lot guests waiting in line. One interesting thing: you will learn a fact of Josef II of the Holy Roman Empire if you live in the hotel ;-) We highly recommend Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus!

Small rooms but nice. No dinner or room service. There are nice restaurants within 2 blocks though. The main parking lot has a 7 foot height limit but you can park taller vehicles in a garage across the street.

Good location, great customer service, bar and restaurant on site

Very clean hotel, very accommodating staff, very friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Extra fees were charged because my child aged 17 not considered a child in Vienna, must be 16. So she had to pay for breakfast and extra 19 Euro. On check out another fee cropped up, Vienna City tax, 5 Euro... Other than these unexpected charges the room was lovely, hotel quiet and well placed, breakfast good

Excellent expeerience. Great and efficient reception, friendly, helpfull staff. Gret location close to Rathaus U Bahn, nice area. Room big enough and very comfortable with plenty of good channels on TV Restaurants in area OK Careful many don't accept C Cards

This was a very clean and nice hotel. I will definitely stay there again next time I visit Vienna.

We arrived to the Hotel Mercure Josefshof Wie after a lengthy and grueling day and night of traveling. The hotel staff had our paper work ready in advance so the check in was very pleasant and efficient. The room was modern and very clean and comfortable. The staff was very kind and helpful. I certainly would recommend this hotel to others.

Very good location. Close to the old city, Hoffburg, etc. Really spacious room. Overall is very good.

good

This is a great location for exploring Vienna. The rooms are clean, and fairly decent in size. Figuring out how to control the room temperature was a bit of a mystery, and consequently, our room was pretty hot, even though it was pretty cold outside.

Super well located to enjoy Vienna by foot. There is a SUPERB Viennese restaurant (for locals not focused on tourists) just around the corner, close the the subway station, called "Rathaus Cafe" - great service, wonderful food and ambiance, great price.

Hotel was in a great location. Metro stops were 1 block in either direction. MuseumsQuartier was two blocks away, Parliament was very close, Neues Rathaus was a block and a half away. Room was very nice and bathroom had a huge tub. Pricey but it was high season and the location was worth it. We would stay again. Great Hotel.
