This review is about the one bedroom apartment at Karolinengasse 28.
Large, spacious, spotlessly clean, this apartment is in the Wieden area of central Vienna, a quiet residential district. Yet, at the eastern end of the street is the Belvedere, one of the city's most famous and loved Baroque palaces, so you are definitely not out of the action. There is an underground stop (Sudtiroler Platz) an easy five minute walk away (turn right out of the building, head to Favoritenstrasse, turn left onto it and walk until you see the blue and white 'U'). The red U1 line takes you to both Karlsplatz and Stephansplatz very quickly, and then you can hook up to any of the other four lines.
There are supermarkets on Favoritenstrasse (Hofer is the Austrian Aldi) and on Argentinierstrasse (Spar), so you will find supplies easy and very close. I do not speak German but had no trouble with communication (the Viennese were friendly and helpful). A walk into the Innere Stadt takes 15-25 minutes, depending on how quickly you walk, and it is all flat. Once at the Karlskirche (a Baroque masterpiece) you have easy access to the galleries, Imperial buildings, Spanish Riding School etc. The Hofburg is a must and you can get to Schonbrunn very easily by the U4 underground line from Karlsplatz.
I highly recommend staying at one of the Shermin Apartments in Vienna. The rates are extremely reasonable and the properties are beautifully kept. The owners, Sofie and her husband, are lovely and respond quickly to any queries. I felt like I was living in Vienna, rather than just visiting.
