Loved the area as so full of little food and eating places with an outdoor market on Saturday. Very close to Ubahn 1 which connects to all parts of the city and surrounding. Loved the view at night with all the lights on the bridge, the UN building and Harry Siedler's unique architecture. Great watching the barges up and down the Danube. We will visit again.

It is quite noisy until the early hours :- earplugs are required if windows are open. Supermarkets (ALDI, Lidl), a market etc. a couple of minutes away (turn right out of apartment). Overall, a good base to see a beautiful city.

Vienna in winter with its Christmas markets is a wonderful destination and this little apartment with it clever and thoughtful design features (typical of Scandinavian flair!) was an ideal base, being close to the Ubahn, and Schonborn Palace and Park, and warm bolt-hole for those cold nights when you just wanted to relax after being out all day! Ingela is an absolutely charming host, who made our stay an absolute pleasure. Would we recommend her apartment to others? We already have. If we make another visit to Vienna, would we rent this apartment again? Absolutely!
