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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment was easy to find with a very helpful advice sheet from Andreas. 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.
