“Great location, great apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

I've got a thing for Vienna, and on this latest trip i was traveling with my partner and mother in law. This meant we needed two rooms in a hotel. Looking at the prices of several places, I settled on this two bedroom apartment in Schmidgasse. It looked nice in the pictures and was €300 cheaper than a 3 star hotel elsewhere in the city.

Firstly, the location is perfect. Located in a quiet side street just behind the beautiful Rathaus. There's a tram stop close and a underground station just a few minutes away. Around the area there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to pick around.

The apartment building itself has an small elevator on the ground floor, but there are a few steps to get your cases up to reach the lift. If you have multiple bags, expect multiple trips in the lift, which is just big enough for a suitcase and one person. It's pretty common in these old building to have small elevators.

First impressions of the apartment itself were good. The entrance hallway featured a full sized bathroom on the left and a nice size bedroom with two single beds to the right. The beds are a bit close together, but it's not a huge problem. At the end of the corridor is the main living area. The living area was huge. A large sofa sat against one wall, along with a table and chairs. A decent flat screen tv with upc cable hook up is also provided and the free wifi is swift and easy to use. Behind the living room is the main bedroom featuring a huge double bed and wardrobe. The room also has a frosted glass wall that allows the kitchen next door to get some natural light.

The kitchen it incredibly well appointed with a full oven, hob, microwave and a full size dishwasher. Even the fridge is a large unit.

For the week we stayed, there were very few things to complain about. The only thing my mother in law mentioned was that the small bedroom's wall was a bit thin, with the talking from the apartment next door clearly audible, if the occupants were in the kitchen. It's a small gripe though.

This is a great location if your traveling with a family for a few days or a month or two. The apartment is everything an old Viennese apartment should be. High vaulted ceilings, excellent furnishings and convenient location. I'd recommend this apartment to anyone.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We stayed in a 4 bedroom apartment. We were a group of 4 ladies travelling for a birthday weekend. The apartment was in an amazing location, close to so many bars and restaurants. The owner met us on arrival and he was very friendly and welcoming. It was -10 degrees when we were there but our apartment was super cosy and warm. We found it easily enough on the first day as we had booked a taxi from the airport and handed him the address. Down the road is main road with trams and trains but we walked everywhere as it was all so close and anything we did at night was just a short taxi as it was warmer and safer. We all loved our trip to Vienna so much and would happily stay in the apartment again. Value for money, better than a hotel when its more than two people going. Cannot recommend enough!

Room Tip: We were in apartment 10 at the top of the building, it had some great views and was very big but the...

it is convenient transportation with U2.line on Rathaus station. but the exact location is not easy to find in google. we walked in the wrong way at beginning but after contact the service ppl he is very kind and he walk to the Rathaus station to pick us. the building is just close to the station in a small street which is very quite. the building is with 300 years history but all furniture and equipment is modern style with every thing is it for daily life. we two family enjoy staying in one apartment with 2 separate bedrooms.
strongly recommend to go.
