I am an American university professor and this is the third time i've visited Vienna, previously staying in hotels. But this time i was on sabbatical and so spent a month, staying in Central Apartments Vienna. I know they lease for as short as 3 days, but i was staying 30 days so wanted more than a hotel room. this place has 4 large rooms and a bath.
CAV is a well-maintained, apartment complex located near the central Vienna district , one block from the NachtMarkt, large open market with fresh foods, etc., and a few blocks from the palace, opera house, cathedral , museaums, etc. . And a regular Billa grocery store for regular items. I chose it cause it is a 30 minute walk to the University where I was a Visiting Scholar.
The manager , Mr. Voshmgir, is very professional and attentive. I originally found him on the web and from the start he was prompt and attentive in emails, details, etc.. He arranged the cab from the airport and met me at the apt. on Sat., showed me around apt. and surrounding area so I got my bearings. While here, he was available via cell phone and helpful in several details, recommending sights, directions, etc.. Yet he was unobtrusive and respected our privacy. It cost less than a good hotel but was much more spacious. I was amazed when my family came to join me for a few days that all four of us were comfortable in the apt (after our large house), because the rooms are large, high-ceilings, and well arranged, with folding out beds in the living room. It is a "turnkey" setup with all dishes, linens, appliances, utensils, computer, washers,tv, cd player. Just like home. Trash disposal is convenient and the apt is cleaned very well (including linens) every week.
I felt safe in the building and area. Nearby are some excellent cafes and resturants (3 blocks down Meulgasse I recommend Resturant Belgrade, esp. the garden section). If I were staying in Vienna more than a night or two I would prefer this arrangement to a hotel.It has a homey feeling, with nice wood floors and Persian rugs. Just as a matter of personal taste, i dont like modern art, but some of the paintings in the apt are traditional.
I'll definitely stay here in future trips to Vienna.
