Vienna has more than 20 Christmas markets located in all neighbourhoods across the city. The most popular are in the 1st district and of course, this is where you’ll find many of the city’s sights and attractions. You’ll most likely want to stay in this area and in this article we list the best hotels near Vienna Christmas Market. In general, by that we mean somewhere near Rathausplatz (the Town Hall) or near the MuseumsQuartier in the nearby 7th district.
Hotels near Vienna Christmas Market
Having spent a lot of time in Vienna, I actually think staying near MuseumsQuartier is the way to go. Not only would you be within walking distance to the best Christmas markets, the city’s incredible museums and parks but also the popular restaurants, cafes and bars of the 7th district (known as Neubau).
In this area, you would also be close to the 6th and 4th districts where you’ll have access to even more great places to eat as well as Karlsplatz where there is another Christmas market.

If you do want to stay in the very city centre, then somewhere between St Stephen’s Cathedral and the famous Cafe Central would be a good choice.
Top Pick25hours Hotel MuseumsQuartier
Address: Lerchenfelder Straße 1-3. Neubau, 1070 Vienna, Austria
The 25hours is a well-known boutique hotel in the MuseumsQuartier in Neubau. The location is unbeatable if you want to be near Vienna Christmas Market or the Christmas Village on Maria Theresien Platz. The hotel is walking distance to the Hofburg Palace, Volksgarten, the Austrian Parliament, the Town Hall, Albertina, Vienna State Opera and the main shopping districts. It really is the best area to stay in Vienna. As for the hotel itself, each room is uniquely designed with eclectic furniture and there is a rooftop bar. I’ve stayed in a number of the 25hours hotels and they are all great.Check Availability
Small Luxury Hotel Altstadt Vienna
Address: Kirchengasse 41, 07. Neubau, 1070 Vienna, Austria
A family-run boutique hotel with a focus on art and quality service. Located in Neubau, this is a great area to stay if you’re interested in eating out and visiting galleries and museums. The hotel is located next to two of the best brunch spots in Vienna, Ulrich and Erich (same owners). Definitely visit if you get the chance. Hotel Altstadt Vienna is a 10-minute walk to Maria Theresien Platz and a bit further to the Rathausplatz Christmas Market.
Motel One Wien-Staatsoper
Address: Elisabethstraße 5, 01. Innere Stadt, 1010 Vienna, Austria
If you’re on a budget then I recommend the Motel One which is located just around the corner from Vienna’s Opera House. Yes, Motel One is a chain hotel but it’s excellent value for money and the standard is always reliable. The hotel is only one block from Art Advent on Karlsplatz and a 5-minute walk from the Maria Theresien Platz Christmas market. The other main markets are 15 to 20 minutes away. Motel One has three other hotels in Vienna but they aren’t as well located.
Hotel Sans Souci Wien
Address: Burggasse 2, 07. Neubau, 1070 Vienna, Austria
One of the most famous luxury hotels in Vienna, Hotel Sans Souci is wonderfully decorated in sophisticated Viennese style and the service is impeccable. Importantly, 100% of the hotel’s electricity is powered by renewable energy and they avoid single-use plastics meaning this is on the best sustainable hotels in Vienna. The hotel is around the corner from the Maria Theresien Platz and a very short walk to Rathausplatz (Town Hall) and all the sights in historic Vienna.
High Street Suites
Address: Kohlmarkt, Wallnerstraße 2, 01. Innere Stadt
If you would prefer to have the space and privacy that comes with an apartment, High Street Suites is one of the best in Vienna. It is ideally located halfway between Stephansplatz and Cafe Central in the heart of Vienna. There is a huge range of apartments available that would suit groups and families but there are also studios that are ideal for singles or couples. This is a really great location for sightseeing in Vienna and is especially worth considering if you’re planning a longer stay in Vienna.
Boutiquehotel Das Tyrol
Address: Mariahilfer Straße 15, 06. Mariahilf, 1060 Vienna, Austria
One of the most highly-rated hotels near the Christmas markets in Vienna. Located in the 6th district near the MuseumsQuartier. The rooms are designed in a unique gold and red theme. The hotel has an electric car charging station and bike rental.
