Each room at the design hotel Rathaus is impeccably decorated and named after an Austrian winemaker. With labels from each vintner's wines blown up and silk screened on each door (and specific wines from that producer available in the minibar), they clearly worship the grape at Hotel Rathaus, a sleek and splurge-worthy property.
The décor here is classic Euro-modern, all sharp edges and hard surfaces, though each room is furnished slightly differently. Five recently renovated rooms are a bit funkier, with touches like a bed with a bathtub in the headboard. In the bathrooms, stand-up showers that flow into the rest of the space are a nice touch.
All this design doesn't come cheap, but there is a 25 percent reduction in price during the low season of July and August, which is high season everywhere else in Vienna. Another discount at the Rathaus: doubles offered as singles.
Another fun bonus? The hotel touts a "Vintner of the Month" at their wine bar and decorates common areas with corks. The clever theme, the impeccable service, the design details, and the central location make it one of our favorite hotels in the city..

About the Hotel Rathaus - Wein & Design 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.
