Two stations on U4 to Schönbrunn Palace, and a couple of stops in the other direction to Karlsplatz and on to Schwedenplatz. Two bakeries and a supermarket were a couple of minutes away, and walking around the area are some lovely places to eat, Waldviertlerhof on Schönbrunnerstrasse has typical Viennese food, Budapest Bistro offers super breakfasts, and the lunchtime food at Bierometer looked fantastic at €6-7. The architecture in this area is incredible, worth a stroll around. The apartment is lovely, spacious sitting room with a sofa bed, a small balcony, perfect for a quiet morning coffee or an evening Aperol, adequate kitchen facilities (I never cook on holiday, only light breakfast) and a fantastic bathroom. Would benefit from a bit more storage for more than 2 people. Communication with the owner was excellent from booking the apartment to our arrival. Will definitely recommend this place.

All communcations with Andreas were easy and helpful. He met us as planned and gave us very useful advice.The appartment was very well appointed and clean, and covered all our needs for exploring Vienna. It is around the corner and off the main street so reasonably quiet for a city appartment at night. We were confident that should we need any additional help Andreas would provide. The underground station is very close by (1-2 mins) and we had no difficulty using it to see the sights of Vienna and also with a large suitcase to and from the airport using the S7 from Landstrasse. Vienna has lots to offer as outdoor sightseeing if you are lucky with the weather (which we were), but there are many galleries and museums also if the weather is less kind.
