Living Hotel
Kaiser Franz Joseph

We are the elegant alternative to a classic inner city hotel. Live and work in the leafy 19th district, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can take in spectacular views of Vienna from the vineyards of the charming nearby district of Grinzing, with its traditional wine taverns, while the view of the leafy surroundings from the balcony of your room is also not to be missed. Our comfortable hotel rooms and serviced apartments in Vienna are the perfect place to switch off and relax after a hard day’s work or a busy day of sightseeing. You’ll find the peace and quiet you need to organize your daily life. 


Our Living Hotel is situated in Vienna’s beautiful and quiet 19th District. This upscale residential neighborhood is perfect for all those who want to be away from the hustle and bustle but still be within reach of Vienna’s sophisticated glamor. Make the most of the location. Take a walk in the green surroundings, explore the villa district or head into the city center – good connections mean you’ll be standing outside the Prater park, the Albertina museum and much more in no time at all. Another special highlight is our proximity to Grinzing, a wine village with a long history of wine-making and fantastic vineyards with a breathtaking panoramic view of Vienna.

Relaxing days

Had pleasant days, warm and sunny. The two balconies were very relaxing. One for the morning and the other for the evening. The view over the rooftops of Vienna with the highlight "Kahlenberg" was also enchanting



It was a wonderful time and the weather was glorious

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have always been very satisfied. This time we got an upgrade without having ordered it. We were very happy about that. On the top floor with a terrace and a view of the Kahlenberg. It doesn't get any nicer than this.
