The hotel is named after Johann Philipp Graf Stadion (1763-1824) who was a statesman and foreign minister (see personal data below).

It was built in the Biedermeier Epoche style in 1824/1825 and is registered as a historic monument (The Wiener Biedermeier).
According to still existing documents the house is run as a hotel since 1897. The only interruption was during the American occupation from July 1945 until Dec. 1948.

The hotel was renovated throughout the past years. After a modernisation in 1984 followed a complete reorganisation and redecoration during March/April 1999. All rooms, also the reception, lobby and breakfast room have been adjusted to the higher 3 star hotel comfort.

The hotel in the historic centre of Vienna's Josefstadt (the 8th district) was managed by Milan Oborny since May 1999 until January 2014.

Graf Stadion

Johann Philipp Stadion
Graf von Warthausen

Graf Stadion (born in June 1763 in Mainz, died in May 1824 in Baden near Vienna) was ambassador in Stockholm (1787-1790) and in London, where he was instrumental in convincing England to participate in the Wars of Coalition against revolutionary France.

In 1793 Stadion resigned in protest from his diplomatic post, when Emperor Franz I. wanted to cede Poland to Prussia and exchange the Netherlands for Bavaria. In 1800 he resumed his duties as ambassador in Berlin and starting in 1803 in St. Petrersburg where he convinced the Tsar to enter the third Coalition War.

In 1805 Stadion was appointed to the position of Austrian foreign minister.

In that capacity his concerns focused primarily on internal reforms of the education system and its administration as well as economic reconstruction and the armamentof the civilian population (in an effort to better confront Napoleonic France). He was in favor of the Austrian uprising in 1809, which however collapsed without the participation of Prussia, much to the chagrin of Stadion who had hoped for the latter's support.

Due to the Austrian defeat, Stadion lost his position as foreign minister to Clemens v. Metternich.

Starting in 1815, Stadion served as minister of finance. Under the auspices of a new tax system he founded the Austrian National Bank in 1816.
