Though a bit noisy from neighbour on first day (old building has limitations), it was still a good place to stay. Helpful staff, nice breakfast, clean. One thing to improve: replace burnt lightbulbs and detached curtain. Then, it would be prefect.

I stayed 7 nights at this hotel. The room was spacious, clean and freshly renovated. The location is not bad, you have to spend 7 mins by walking to the Rathaus. I did not have any problems with the Internet in my room. The breakfast was very good. There was only one small shortcoming - a very noisy fan in...

We stayed 2 nights at Urban Stay Hotel Columbia. I had booked the B&B under the name Pension Columbia but I found out via email communication with the new owner that the name had in fact changed and that also there were several changes being done to the property. I have to say that we had a very good stay...

The proprietors have just taken over recently and already they are doing a wonderful job. It has been freshly renovated.

Pension Columbia was a relaxing stay for us. We stayed for two nights. The neighborhood was quiet and the location is very convienent - not too far from public transportation, restaurants and grocery stores. The best part was the helpfulness of the staff. They went out of their way to help us find our way around the city, recommended things...

Spent a week at the Pension Columbia and was very pleased - the location is ideal (close to transit, Ringstrasse, university, with easy access to the Innere Stadt and all that is there). This would be my first choice on my next visit to Vienna. Rooms are clean, and comfortable, with firm, comfortable beds. I had what was advertized as...

We spent five nights here. Our first impression was not good. We used the S-bahn, the U-bahn and our feet to arrive at a poorly lighted entrance to a darkened building. We, however, were buzzed into the building by a person who told us an envelope had been left for us upstairs. We found a welcoming note and a key...

Stayed 4 nights at this guest house. Good location close to the center of Vienna yet in a quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to the tram lines and a couple of subway stations, as well as the Innere Stadt. Staff were helpful, including organizing an early morning taxi pick-up to the airport. A simple breakfast spread was included as part of...

I just came back from Vienna yesterday, after staying 2 nights at Pension Columbia. Rooms are big, very clean and very accommodating. Location it's fantastic as the hotel is very close to downtown, more or less reachable walking within 10-15 min. When we arrived though there was nobody at the reception, they had left keys and instructions at the entrance....

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
