On a narrow street in the heart of the Josefstadt, the three-star Hotel Graf Stadion is an authentic Biedermeier-style hotel, with the historic monument registration to prove it. Graf Stadion has been in business since since 1897. Location is a stone's throw from the Rathaus and the U-Bahn, and ten minutes from the Innere Stadt. That and its great amenities make this three-star hotel a find.
Despite the history surrounding the property, the Graf Stadion doesn't feel cramped or weighed down by the years. In fact, beyond the gorgeous circa 1930 elevator, the hotel’s age is hardly noticeable.
The 39 rooms here are on the understated side, with only the occasional floral print providing an anachronistic feeling. Floor-to-ceiling curtains add a regal touch and larger spaces come with dainty wooden writing desks or vanity tables. Doubles are considerably larger than the singles, though at a premium in cost. Street-side rooms are quiet, as the neighborhood could hardly be described as busy. Half the bathrooms have tubs, most with glorious black and white color schemes and gleaming checkerboard tile floors. There's in-room Internet access but no wireless, plus cable television. Half of the rooms are nonsmoking.
The most charming quirk of all? The complimentary drinks at reception. We hope that this tradition makes a wider comeback.

About the Hotel Graf Stadion neighborhood
Josefstadt might not have much to boast in terms of museums or tourist sights (beyond the overly grand Rathaus), but in many ways it's Vienna's most accessible neighborhoods for visitors. Situated between the Alsergrund and the Neubau, many of the neighborhood's buildings are done up in classic Biedermeier style but the district has more of a lived-in feel than does the Innere Stadt's jewel box.
