Where to sleep

There are several districts in Vienna and you can choose which one you prefer based on what you'd like to do more:

Close to top attractions: 1st District (Innere Stadt)

Less touristy and cheaper alternative: 2nd District (Leopoldstadt), 3rd District (Landstraße)

Hip area with lots of bars: 6th (Mariahilf), 7th (Neubau), 8th (Josefstadt)

That said, Vienna is quite small and well organized so as long as you're near a subway station everywhere is fine!

I made a selection of hotels/hostels based on the followings:

-not more than 3km from the center

-at least 8.0 rating

-close to the subway
