Spacious, modern, clean...everything is lovely.It is possible to walk to all the sights you may want to visit or it is easy to travel via public transport if you do not wish to walk. The apartment has a supermarket almost next door for all food and drink items you may desire. Wolfgang is an excellent host with lots of information on the area. ( He very kindly booked us a taxi back to the airport too). Wonderful!

We stayed 4 nights, Mani very kindly met us at the station and it was a very short walk to the apartment. It had two lovely rooms , a kitchen and both bedrooms doubled up as a spacious living room and had tv with netflix etc. The place was very clean and i even used the washing machine before I left. Very comfortable beds and a decent kitchen too. Vienna is a wonderful city to see and this is a good option for a family we were travelling with our son also who is 19 or couples. I felt it was good value and Mani was very welcoming ,
