Andreas was already there to meet us, despite our late arrival and had turned on the air-con so the apartment was comfortable for us as we settled in. We can only repeat all the favourable reviews from everyone else who has stayed. The apartment is even better than the photographs, clean and modern with excellent furnishings and all the equipment you could ask for. As mentioned above, the air-con, which is a proper system with remote controls to control the temperature in the living room and both bedrooms, is great for hot summer days. The living room and bedrooms have large windows that look out over a quiet street and make the apartment bright and airy. The location is excellent with the station 2 minutes walk away, since it's the U3 line the trains are every 3 to 5 minutes and it only takes a few minutes to get right into the historic centre. Nice quiet area with 2 small supermarkets within 100 m. Really couldn't fault any aspect of the apartment or our welcome. Highlights of Vienna for us: Mozart Requiem in Karlskirche. Renting bikes and cycling out to the vineyards on the outskirts of the city. Kunsthistorisches Museum- the Bruegels and the stunning café-restaurant. Open air screening of the Barber of Seville in the Rathausplatz.

We stayed 4 nights, Mani very kindly met us at the station and it was a very short walk to the apartment. It had two lovely rooms , a kitchen and both bedrooms doubled up as a spacious living room and had tv with netflix etc. The place was very clean and i even used the washing machine before I left. Very comfortable beds and a decent kitchen too. Vienna is a wonderful city to see and this is a good option for a family we were travelling with our son also who is 19 or couples. I felt it was good value and Mani was very welcoming ,
