Our family of four (with two young children) loved staying at Christian’s apartment. First of all, the location is wonderful! The communication and check in process was great and super helpful! The apartment itself is extremely spacious! It’s a beautiful building! Lots of room to spread out! Beautiful original windows! The furnishings themselves could use some updating in the living room and dining room. The toilet room is very small but the shower is large and looks fairly new. We felt that the apartment itself, although it could use a bit of work, seemed like a pretty authentic Viennese apartment. There is an amazing restaurant and bakery right below! We would stay there again based on the location alone!
We stayed in this apartment for 3 days last week with our 3 children and couldn't have been more impressed by its' spaciousness and location! It was close to everything, in a wonderful part of town. We were a bit worried that without air conditioning, the apartment would get very hot, but even during the record breaking heat (37C/99F) with fans, the apartment stayed cool and was actually quite comfortable. There was a bit of street noise in the morning but nothing unexpected staying in the heart of a city. The beds were comfortable, the apartment had everything we could have needed during our stay and Christian and Olivera were amazing hosts and extremely helpful. We would absolutely recommend this apartment for a stay in Vienna!
Lovely large central apartment
5 ladies fitted in to this lovely elegant apartment in the centre of Vienna. We had a bed each which was comfortable and our rooms were spectacularly large and airy. The whole place was very clean and the kitchen, which we didn't use was very well equipped.
Although there was only 1 toilet and bathroom, surprisingly it was sufficient, though the toilet space was small! The shower was excellent and we loved having dressing tables in the rooms. As it was so central we could walk everywhere and our host organised a taxi to and from the airport which shared between 5 was efficient and economical and so much easier with our baggage. Communication with our host was easy and he immediately had the coffee machine replaced as the one in the kitchen did not appear to work. Being central with restaurants and bar below, there was a bit of noise from the street below on the Friday night, but this did not bother us and it could be shut out by shutting the outer window and the inner window. We all slept very well! I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and cant wait to return. We loved our stay.
Thanks Kathleen for a great review, would love to have you again!
superb location. very helpful staff. fantastic apartment. convenient to all. superb bakery at bottom of apartment.
the street is very noisy. the apartment can be quite hot as there is no AC.
Thanks for the review Darius!
There are three fans for cooling in the apartment - as general info, it is not allowed to install A/C in protected buildings in Vienna, that's why so few accommodations have it. Only one of our apartments has it, Symphonia.
As for street noise, there I disagree. One's perception of noise is a personal thing, however there are a few facts: it's a pedestrian street, therefore no cars or trucks except for 2 hours in the morning for deliveries, it is generally very quiet, however with all windows open on a warm night, you can hear two passers by having a normal conversation: this can hardly be described as a lot of noise! Admittedly, the baker downstairs can be noisy in the morning. One only needs to read the reviews below to see how many guests feel this apartment is quiet!
You won't be disappointed!
This flat is a special place and we recommend it. It is located in the heart of the old city, within a short distance to all of the locations visitors will want to see. It has a classic Viennese design, clean and comfortable, in a quiet building. The bakery on the ground floor was a daily visit for us. The owner communicated well and we appreciated his flexibility with our schedule changes after we made our reservations.
Great central, yet quiet, location. Well equipped and good quality furnishings. Fantastic flat character and very knowledgable/helpful hosts.
Location, location. The feeling of living in this part of town, one of the oldest of Vienna (end of 18th century), with all the charming labyrinthine streets filled with traditional shops, restaurants and cafes, is really unique. St-Stephens cathedral is 200m away from the flat (about 3 minutes by foot) as is the underground station for the rare times you'll actually have to take transportation (for instance the day you go to the Schönbrunn palace which is out of town). In 5 minutes or less by foot, you can reach the Hofburg, the Spanish riding school, the Graben, Kärntnerstrasse, the Cafe Central and dozens of other sites.
