Austria's capital brims with imperial glory, thanks in part to the influence of the Hapsburgs who were based here. It's hard not to be impressed by the baroque buildings and sprawling palaces, and even harder not to be drawn in by the array of sumptuous cakes in the atmospheric coffee shops (hello, Sachertorte). Whether you're watching free performances outside the Wiener Staatsoper, browsing the wares at the Naschmarkt, or sipping riesling in a bookshop-cum-bar, Vienna is a city that's bound to delight.

Where to stay in Vienna

Choose the best place to stay in Vienna with our brief guide to the city's most popular tourist neighbourhoods. From hipster enclaves to shopping streets, here's where to look for hotels in Vienna.

Innere Stadt

The 1st district sits inside Vienna's ring road, and is the best place to stay if you want to be bang-smack in the heart of sightseeing territory. This district is home to Hofburg Palace, St Stephen's Cathedral and Mozarthaus. It's also where the bulk of the souvenir shops are.

Leopoldstadt

Home to the Prater Park, Vienna's second district is a great choice for families visiting Vienna. Funnily enough, it's also popular with nightlife seekers as some of Vienna's best clubs can be found near the Praterstern and Messe Wien tube station.

Landstrasse

Vienna's third district is home to the Stadtpark, ideal for relaxing in during the summer months (not to mention romantic strolls on a couple's break). Hotels near Landstrasse are ideal for architecture-buffs, as the neighbourhood is packed with Imperial charm. Schwarzenberg Palace, Belvedere Palace and the domineering Konzerthaus can all be found in this area.

Mariahilf and Neubau

Ignore the chain stores on Mariahilfstrasse – this neighbourhood is a hipster paradise. Get off the main drag and you'll find plenty of pop-up bars, street art and design boutiques. You'll also find some oddball attractions,  such as the Haus das Meeres: an aquarium inside an WW2-era flak tower.

Josefstadt

Look at hotels in Josefstadt if you're after a peaceful trip, but don't want to be too far from the action. This is the smallest of Vienna's districts, and sits behind the City Hall. There are plenty of little surprises scattered among the neighbourhood cafés, including Vienna's oldest theatre.

Hotel prices in Vienna fluctuate depending on season and demand, but these three wallet-friendly hotels are usually a safe bet.

Vienna Hostel Ruthensteiner – This family-run boutique hostel has a bar, bike rental and a self-service laundrette.

Wombat's City Hostels Vienna at the Naschmarkt – Enjoy a free welcome drink when you arrive at this trendy, central hostel. It's renowned for its cleanliness: and has even won awards for it.

Hotel Restaurant Fritz Matauschek – This two-star hotel is a great choice for foodies, as it boasts a traditional restaurant where you can try Viennese specialties.

Best time to visit Vienna

Vienna is at its best from April to October. The summer months, June to August, are the most popular times to visit as the city experiences warm and sunny weather. Vienna is one of Europe's best Christmas market destinations, so it's a popular spot during December too.

Cheapest time to stay in Vienna

Avoid the Christmas and summer crowds and head to Vienna during spring (April/May) and autum (September/October) instead. The weather is still pleasant, but you won't have to fight your way through the crowds at the Hofburg.

Best time to book hotels in Vienna

Hotel prices tend to go up with demand, so you're unlikely to find cheap rates during the high seasons (summer and Christmas). That said, you'll always find the best prices when you search with us. We show you the best deals from travel agents alongside the rate if you book direct, so you'll never miss out on a bargain break to Vienna.
