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.

Do not hesitate for a second! Book! You’ll love it. It’s ideal for 4, okay for 5 or 6. It’s spacious, modern, and comfortable: A big living room with Sat-TV (BBC & CNN available) and Panasonic Blu Ray-DVD Player. 2 bedrooms, kitchen well equipped, a bathroom with bath & shower and toilet. There is also a separate second toilet. This was a nice surprise. During warm, dry days the access to the roof top terrace is unbeatable. Seats, table available for relaxation. The only regret if you are visiting; the day may be too short to enjoy all these. If you are traveling by car, the apartment comes with a safe parking; a few meters away. The location of the apartment is also perfect. It is center placed, shops close by, and with a good Vienna map or via Google, all tourist attractions are in walking distance. This is a huge positive. No need for Bus, non for Trams, neither for Metro, hence no schedules to chase. Just you and your legs. You go where you want, whenever you want, as far as you can. Tourism at is best. Even Belvedere was accessible on foot. And the owner Mrs Katharina; A very Warm, Nice Lady. You'll get all the help you need from her. This was yet another visit to Vienna, but the BEST. Thanks to Apartment 53, Auerspergstrasse 7 and the host.
