The location and quality of Sandra's apartment certainly added to our experience. It is quick and easy to get into the centre of Vienna using the underground - the station is located only a few minutes walk away. The local area has several good and very reasonably priced restaurants which we used in the evening after a day of sightseeing in the centre. The apartment itself was clean and spacious and above all comfortable. We were very happy to return to it after a day out in the city. Any communication between ourselves and Sandra before we arrived in Vienna was dealt with very quickly and efficiently and we had no need to contact her during our stay. We used the taxi company she recommended to take us to and from the airport and pre-booked it before our arrival . All in all a good trip.

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!
