Vienna (pts024/02.07.2018/10:50) - The prestigious Hotel Mercure Josefshof Wien am Rathaus separates from the Accor Group and will emphasize its individuality as a private hotel in the city in the future even more. Founder, owner and hotelier Franz Honegger wants to adress a different category of guests seeking more individuality, warm hospitality and a family atmosphere. The "Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus" is one of the most popular hotels in the center of Vienna with 164 rooms and suites; many well-known music and entertainment artists are guests here.

A change to another hotel group is not planned. As part of the realignment Franz Honegger wants to further increase comfort and quality, improve customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. In 2017, the Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus recorded an average annual occupancy of 76.2 percent. 22 employees generated net sales of more than Eur 5 million, with cleaning and breakfast outsourced.

The four-star hotel in Vienna's Josefstadt is managed by music lover, singer (Vienna Boys' Choir, Arnold Schoenberg Choir) and sound engineer Franz Honegger and general manager Elisabeth Neubauer-Schrall, who has been with the company since 1990, and a dedicated team of longtime staff. The Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus opened its doors in 1984, from 1999-2018 it was operated as Hotel Mercure Josefshof Wien am Rathaus (near the Town Hall), since July 1, 2018 it is again privately operated as "Hotel Josefshof am Rathaus".
