“Spacious apartment in a good location”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Two of us stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks in April 2017.

The apartment is in a good location. It is on the tram 46 route nearest to the Schottenfeldgasse stop. Tram 46 connects to other tram routes on the Ringstrasse and the metro at Volkstheatre. Alternatively you can walk to the museum quarter in about 15 to 20 minutes. There are several Billa supermarkets within walking distance, and a Hofer (AKA Aldi) a bit further away on Lerchenfelder Strasse. Bear in mind that these are all closed from 18:00 on Saturday until early Monday morning. The only small Billa we found open between these times was in terminal 1 at the airport.

There are many choices of restaurant within walking distance of the apartment. Although our favourites, Schnitzelwirt and Centimeter II, were about a 10-15 minute walk away.

The apartment is off of a courtyard away from the street. It’s on the first floor and faces onto a garden at the back of the building. Because of its position and very good secondary glazing we heard no street noise when we there, and got a peaceful night's sleep every night. On a few nights of our stay the apartment next door was occupied and it was possible to hear conversations next door when in the lounge. However, we were not disturbed by this in the bedroom.

The apartment is spacious with a small shower room and a separate toilet. The bed consisted of 2 single mattresses with a gap between them. Thus it was more like sleeping in two single beds rather than a double bed. There was sufficient wardrobe space but insufficient hangers for 2 adults to hang up their clothes for a 2 week stay, so you may need to bring your own hangers.

The Wi-Fi was patchy in two aspects: coverage and connection to the internet. The ‘default’ Wi-Fi signal was okay in the lounge but did not stretch to the kitchen table. If you can find the ‘default_xt’ network this has the same password and better coverage. The connection to the internet would often go down in the evening, and it was not possible to simply switch the router off and on again as it was not in the apartment. On one occasion we texted Sandra to ask her to restart the router, but the internet connection did not return until the morning. When we lost the internet on other occasions it had returned by the morning without contacting Sandra.

There was a TV but there were no English speaking channels. In the kitchen the microwave, oven and hob worked well. We made good use of the dishwasher during our stay and it was a welcome bonus that tablets were provided.

The hot water seemed to heat up on demand and worked well for showering and washing up. Although washing up would have been easier if there had been a plug for the sink. There was a once in 20 year cold snap in April during our stay so we were grateful for the central heating system that kept us warm.

The main issue I would say we had was to do with communication with Sandra. Prior to our stay communication was rather stilted. Typically she would only reply after I emailed my questions a second time after waiting more than 24 hours for a reply.

To check into the apartment I phoned Sandra when we arrived. Shortly afterwards we were greeted by a very pleasant older lady who spoke virtually no English, German or French. This made asking any questions about our stay very difficult. After sharing some mutual confusion the lady called Sandra and she soon appeared. Why she was not able to greet us at the front of the building was not clear. It would have been easier if she had greeted us at the front door, or at least arranged for someone to greet us who could speak English as well as her.

We emailed Sandra 2 days before check out to try to confirm arrangements that we had discussed with her when we arrived. We asked for a reply if it was NOT okay for us to leave our luggage in the apartment until about 2:30pm. Having not received a reply it was a little surprising on the day of departure when Sandra knocked at the door at about 12:15pm informing us that the next guests were due to arrive in about an hour and she needed immediate access to the apartment. Why she could not inform us of this earlier was not clear. Fortunately we were in the apartment at the time as we had to move our bags to another apartment. We were grateful that we were able to leave our bags elsewhere, but if we’d known in advance that this is what we’d have to do we’d have been better prepared.

In summary I’d recommend this spacious apartment in a good location in Vienna. If Sandra’s communication had been better, there had been a double mattress and better Wi-Fi I would have given the apartment 5 rather than 4 stars.

“Comfortable and convenient, and excellent service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

It is important not to judge this property by its neighborhood or the outward appearance of the building, which is old and a bit forbidding, especially when arriving by taxi from the Wien Mitte station late in the evening. Once inside, however, albeit via a courtyard where trash is collected, this is a very large, comfortable apartment, recently renovated, with high ceilings and a sunny, fully-equipped kitchen. The windows at the back overlook a bright and green park area. The bed is very comfortable, there is a TV (unfortunately only German-language stations) and good wi-fi connections -- the key is posted on a cupboard in the kitchen. Beware of the water heater -- located in the kitchen -- we occasionally had cold water in the shower and had to reset it; easy when you know how. Fortunately we were able to call upon Sandra, a young mother whose family owns several units in the building and who lives there, who was always available,cheerfully to answer questions and provide local advice. The apartment is two tram stops from the Museum Quarter and the Volkstheatr, with quick connections to the U-Bahn. We walked it a few times, but used the tram (purchase multi-day passes; they are well worth it) when the temperature went over an unseasonable 30 degrees. The cost of this vacation rental was reasonable given the size and location of the apartment and the season. it is surrounded by moderately priced restaurants, delis and some modest grocery stores (closed on Sundays and holidays). If booking online, remember that you have a refundable deposit, given to you in cash by Sandra during your stay -- a nice surprise in case you had forgotten about it.
