Amazing property in great location

5 of 5
We stayed in number 25 and loved it. It's really well presented, spacious and in a great location - less than 5 minutes walk to johnstrasse underground station on the u3 and tram 49 stop and is only 10 minutes to stephensplatz. Also walking distance to Schloss Schoenbrunn. The apartment is well equipped and is in a quiet block. The road is busy but it was quite nice to hear the trams go past. Owner Sandra is also very helpful and offers good advice.
