                                          We loved the location as base for our stay. Everything very clean, comfortable and roomy. Good communication and instructions from owner. Wouldn't hesitate recommending.

                                          Comfortable and well-situated apartment

                                          5 of 5
                                          Well-situated apartment. You can walk into the centre in about 25 minutes, or take a tram. The U-Bahn is just around the corner, as well. There are convenient supermarkets and fruit/veg shops nearby, particularly on Josefstädter Straße (turn left when leaving the apartment building). The apartment itself is clean, well-furnished and well-equipped (although we weren't sure if the casserole pots could be used in the oven). The area itself is quiet at night, and feels very safe. We had a great time, and loved it!
