The Marx Halle hosts numerous events through the year. Whether a visitor or exhibitor, you might like somewhere to stay nearby. I browsed the local area to find those hotels both close to the venue and with a rating (at the time of writing) of at least 8 at Booking.com.

In no particular order…
Austria Trend Hotel Doppio Wien
(Convenient for the T-center building)
A modern four-star hotel with parking and over 120 rooms just off Rennweg, a road that leads direct to the old town via the Belvedere complex. Just jump on the 71 tram to go into the centre or reach Belvedere with its Klimt collection, international art exhibitions, and Baroque palaces.
About a 6 minute walk from the front entrance of the Marx Halle. A good location for the T-Center building (see later), too, which is the hotel’s immediate neighbour.
Rioca Vienna Posto 2
(Colourful and vibrant interior design)
A highly-rated apartment hotel with a Brazilian theme and no minimum stay for apartments. Self-catering facilities available but also the option to book a breakfast and underground parking.
Very close to the Marx Halle (a three minute walk) so a strong option if you need more space as an exhibitor at the venue.
Best Western Plus Amedia Wien
(Has its own parking facilities)
Another four-star hotel option, around nine minutes by foot from the Marx Halle. The Amedia Wien is on Landstraße Hauptstraße, which extends all the way into the centre. Two nearby tram lines (18 and 71) take you into town and to railway stations.
Walk down the road toward the centre to find the outdoor location used as the home of the Liebermann’s in Series 1 and 2 of the popular Vienna Blood series.
(Convenient for the subway)
The closest of the four choices to the subway (Schlachthausgasse or Erdberg stations on the U3 line that goes to Stephansplatz in the pedestrianised centre of Vienna).
As the name suggests, plenty of sport options in this hotel. Offers various packages around its indoor tennis courts, gym and spa facilities, and even golf simulators.
The local area
The area around the Marx Halle is a business development zone with the emphasis on media and the biosciences.
The prestigious Vienna Biocenter, for example, houses various life science organisations, and the prize-winning architecture of the giant T-center is home to the Magenta telecommunications giant.
Nevertheless, a hotel here also puts you in walking distance of a couple of unexpected visitor attractions, including:
- The former St. Marx cemetery: now a lovely park and home to Mozart’s presumed grave (nobody can be completely certain)
- The Danube canal: the nicer riverside walk begins not far from here (walk toward the centre, rather than away from it for a more picturesque journey)
And, frankly, Vienna’s public transport system gets you anywhere quite quickly. The nearby St. Marx station, for example, is a stop on the S7 city train route that takes you to the airport and back.
The area is also close to the A4 motorway that links Vienna to the east and west and also adjacent to the A23 motorway that joins the A4 to (eventually) the A2 motorway that goes south.
The Marx Halle itself hosts large events, cabaret, concerts, and multimedia immersive art exhibitions. Recent/coming examples:
- Edelstoff design market (showcasing products from dozens of independent designers)
- The Craft Bier Fest (craft beer event, so a hotel in walking distance really does make sense)
- Vienna Coffee Festival (a celebration of the city’s favourite beverage)
- Klimt and Monet immersive experiences
- 4GAMECHANGERS Festival
- Austrian Golf Show
- Spark Art Fair
- Haustiermesse (pet expo)
- Trau Dich wedding fair
- Jobmesse Austria recruiting fair
- …and many more
