I went to the GAL apartments for a hen (bachelorette) party. There were 11 of us and we had three apartments, one for five, one for four people and one for two people. Couldn't have chosen a better place. I received excellent service from the minute I booked it to the minute we left.
We arrived around midday and two of the apartments were ready which was great as they shouldn't have been until 2.00pm. We were given free bottles of prosecco by Nazed (hopefully spelt his name correctly) - just because we were on a party!
The apartments were decorated and kitted out to an excellent standard.
In the larger rooms there was a separate double bedroom with drawers and wardrobes. The beds were really comfortable having those memory foam mattresses. The other double bed was in the main living area along with a large sofa bed and another large wardrobe. Despite this you didn't feel like you were in a 'bedsit' - the room was very large so even with 11 people in it (as we were on one of the nights) you didn't feel like you were on top of eachother.
The kitchen was fully fitted out with everything you would need. The venue also leaves a bottle of wine, chocolate for you free of charge. There's a good sized fridge and the cooker is fine too. There were lots of glasses and cups and as there is a supermarket around the corner it's quite easy to stock up for what you need.
In the larger room the bathroom had a bath and a shower, the smaller room just a shower. There were plenty of towels for everyone and there was also a hairdryer.
The apartments were really good value - for 11 people for two nights it cost 628 euros. The people at the apartments also sorted out our taxi transfer from the airport which again for 11 people so two cars cost 69 euros.
Location wise you are literally 10 minutes walk from bars and restaurants and maybe 15 - 20 mins walk from all the main sights of Vienna. There is also a train station quite close by if you want to use the underground. You're just the other side of the river - and there's a fabulous 'beach' bar to spend an afternoon about 5 mins away.
Overall - a great place to stay and if I went back to Vienna I would definitely stay again.
