TravelSupermarket is the only destination you need to compare, book and save money on Vienna hotels...
A short break in the Austrian capital is a must for any curious traveller who enjoys art, culture, history, excellent food, cosy cafés, lively markets and buzzing bars. And the city’s top hotels will ensure a sound night’s sleep after a hard day’s sightseeing.
Also known as the City of Music thanks to a fine pedigree in composers and choirs, Vienna sits on the banks of the River Danube in the northeast corner of Austria, close to the borders with the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. Be sure to tuck into a slice of Sachertorte (maybe even from the Hotel Sacher, where this chocolate cake was invented), before hopping into a horse-drawn carriage and seeing a show at the Spanish Riding School or one of the city’s numerous music venues. With flight times of around two hours from UK airports, it is an ideal destination for a weekend break.

Find out how to make the most of your city break in Vienna with the TravelSupermarket guide on where to stay…
If you are only in the city for a short time, stay in hotels in Vienna city centre to make the most of your break. Many of the city’s attractions, both historic and modern, are located centrally and within easy reach of one another.
The districts here have numbers and the areas have names. But many a mind is easily boggled by the sheer choice, variety and locations of hotels in Vienna. Four of the best places to stay are Innerstadt, Leopoldstadt, Neubau, and Landstrasse, though public transport in Vienna is very efficient and good value, so you shouldn’t be put off booking hotels a little further out.
Innerstadt (district 1) is the most central area, and home to many historic sights. There’s a good mix of budget hotels and luxury hotels here, with plenty of restaurants and bars aimed at visitors.
Leopoldstadt (district 2) lies between the Danube Canal and the mighty river itself. There are plenty of parks and leafy avenues in this area, which has a pretty and elegant air.
Neubau (district 7) is on the other side of the city centre and is a melting pot of creativity and art, while Landstrasse (district 3), to the south east of the centre, is the place to be for a cultural weekend.
Any of the districts between 4 and 9 (from Wieden to Alsergrund) are also worth a look for cheaper hotel rates.
