Excellent location close to transportation. Discovered a superb restaurant with an excellent menu and lovely staff - Zwischenbrueckenwirt on Treustrasse, 27. Well worth a visit. Squeaky doors need oiling. Minor problem.

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.
