This apartment is excellently situated on the Naschmarkt close to many small bars, restaurants and shops. It is only 5 minutes walk to the nearest metro and yet inside it is a complete oasis - we neither heard nor saw anyone else the whole time we were there. Wolfgang, the owner, is extremely helpful and easily contactable. He arranged for a taxi to pick us up and take us back to the airport and promptly answered any questions we had, both before our departure and whilst we were there. As far the apartment itself, it is very clean, warm spacious and modern with views over the internal courtyards. We cooked most evenings and were very satisfied with the range and quality of cooking utensils available. The addition of a microwave would have been nice, though of course not essential. There is a Nespresso machine with complimentary capsules and teabags, sufficient for your stay. There is also free wifi which is fast and reliable. What more can I say- we will definitely be back when we visit Vienna again.

It was well equipped clean and organised. We did have a problem with the door lock but the person looking after the property was very good and got it sorted. We don't appear to have had the deposit back yet a week after departure.
