The sweet, family-owned Pension Arpi is located on a small street at the edge of the Josefstadt. While it's not the most central location—the Ring is about a 15-minute walk away, as are the Stephansdom and the rest of the Innere Stadt—Josefstadt is one of Vienna's most authentically Viennese neighborhoods, and makes a great base for visitors in search of non-tourist stimulation who similarly don't want to miss out on a good selection of shops and restaurants.
Though Kochgasse is hardly busy, many of the rooms face the courtyard, blocking noise from outside and insuring an additional degree of quiet. The Arpi's rooms have a clean, modern look without much extraneous detailing. With blonde wood throughout and hardwood floors predominating the interiors, rooms are also equipped with satellite television, a large mirrored armoire and a far fancier bathroom than the norm. We liked the pink marble in particular.
In sum, the 20-room Arpi provides excellent value for its nightly rate in a friendly, well-kept environment, even if it's short on extras like Internet access.

Josefstadt, Vienna, Austria
About the Pension Arpi 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.
