Lovely traditional apartment in excellent area

5 of 5
The apartment gives you are real sense of what it would have been like to live in a Vienna at the turn of the century. Mauricio was a lovely host. The area is lovely to walk around and had a good organic supermarket nearby and lots of eating places to choose from.

Great location - lovely apartment.

5 of 5
This was our second trip to Vienna and to this apartment. It's so conveniently located; close to the centre but far enough to avoid crowds and traffic when you want to sleep. Apart from a minor problem with the boiler on the last day, everything about the stay was just as we would have wanted. We hope to return next year.
