The Ambience of the City
"Living Vienna Apartment" is so well located in such a famous city that when you stay here you have a glorious chance to take in and experience everything that defines Vienna, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Europe. The fascinating history including the glorious phases of the Austrian and Austro Hungarian Empires and its still evident in its architectural development. The citys association with great music and arts of all persuasions, especially the life of Mozart are evident at every turn. The food, in particular the cakes are legendary and eating out is always a special experience
Our family of 6 adults stayed at the Vienna apartment for two weeks over Christmas 2014 and New Years. It was a great apartment in a great location. Many historical sites were within walking distance of about 15 to 20 minutes. The tram/streetcar and U bahn connections were also super convenient. We took a taxi from the airport (approx. 40 euros) but used the U bahn and train to return to the airport.As we had already purchased weekly transit passes, that way was much cheaper.
The apartment itself was quite spacious. The beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable as were the two single beds in the living room, which were actually the sofa. The sofa was comfortable for sitting, but the chairs in the living room were a bit low to the ground. The large vases in the living room were interesting, but with 6 people, we could have used the space for more chairs. Overall, the living room was quite spacious. The TV, sound system, and computer with wifi were great. The apartment is VERY quiet. Since it was winter, we did not open the windows. The kitchen and dining area were well equipped and definitely roomy enough for six. It was actually good that the toilette and shower were in different rooms. We were able to get everyone showered etc with just a bit of planning. Mrs. Jana was extremely nice and professional.
We mostly ate in, but we found some very nice restaurants in the neighborhood. They had reasonable prices, very good food, and friendly service. I recommend checking them out.
All of the previous reviews did a very good job of describing the apartment. Even though I had a couple of minor negative comments, we would not hesitate to rent this apartment in the future. The location was close enough to the city center to be convenient but just far enough out that it did not feel touristy. It gave us the feeling of living like a typical Vienna resident. We have rented apartments in many cities in Europe, and this was one of the best!

I rented this apartment for my husband, son, and his girlfriend. The night before our flight, when I tried to check in with the airline, my husbands and my passports were rejected because Austria requires that they be valid for three months after you exit the country. Ours were 14 days short of this requirement so we were unable to go. My son and his girlfriend got to enjoy this beautiful apartment. They said it was spacious, had clean linens, was in a super location, and were well taken care of by the manager, Mrs. Jana. Also, my experience with all communication regarding booking the apartment was very smooth. My husband and I will look forward to staying here when we visit Vienna this Spring.

The apartment is very well located. There is much to do nearby. The apartment is quiet, and the kitchen well appointed. The living room furniture is trendy, but not completely comfortable for spending an relaxing evening. That said, the apartment is quite roomy, and the housekeeper is extremely helpful. It is well suited for families (including elders) and recommended.

We stayed in this apartment in August 2014 - a group of 4: me and my partner and my parents who are in their 80s.
The booking process and communication with the owner all went very smoothly and we followed her suggestion of booking a car from/to the airport with http://red-cab.at/, which was very good. On arrival at the apartment, the manager Jana was waiting to greet us and show us around the accommodation and give us some ideas for the local area. There are many handy places just nearby - a couple of good supermarkets, a tobacconist just down the road for transport tickets, a bakery across the road, a nice restaurant-bar on the street corner, tram stop right outside which goes to the historic centre, the underground at the end of the street, just a few minutes away. All very convenient. The apartment itself was great - easy to access via the lift, spacious with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, useful internet-connected laptop and reliable wifi. The only very minor problem was that the seating in the living room isnt very comfortable, but thats getting pretty picky. The bedrooms face into the street and it can be quite noisy with the windows open, even though youre on the 4th floor, which could be annoying if youre visiting during very hot weather.
Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay for our week in Vienna and I would happily use it again or recommend it to anyone. Youll have a comfortable, convenient base for exploring all parts of the city.

On arrival, we were greeted outside by Jana, she took us up to the apartment and showed us around. The property was just as advertised. It is very clean and very well equipped. The location is very good, being an active family we often walked the 20 minutes (for us) down the gently sloping hill past the parliament building and across the Volksgarten and through the Hofburg Palace to the centre of town. The tram is available from just opposite the apartment for those who prefer to take it easy or for general getting around. Tram tickets available from the Tabak across the street and they can be bought as a weekly ticket or single journeys and can be used on underground train as well as the tram.
Only small problem was that flying in to Vienna on a Saturday evening after the shops had shut, there were not any supermarkets open till Monday morning. We could have ordered groceries in advance on line, but my German and the translation page on the web site wasnt up to this. Would gladly have paid for a basic welcome pack of groceries but this did not seem to be an option. (The owner does however provide complimentary Viennese chocolates and biscuits which were lovely) Luckily close to the apartment there is a fabulous bakery, Cafe Hummle on the corner. There are many cafes and restaurants up and down Josefstadt Strasse and also Mac Donalds so we easily found places to eat.
We loved this apartment and would highly recommend it we enjoyed our stay in Vienna very much.

We loved the apartment immediately upon arrival. The lady who met us, Eva, was most gracious and gave us a lot of information, maps and brochures on Vienna. The starter pack that greeted us at the apartment was so generous which included wine and biscuits. The apartment was beautifully furnished and even the kitchen had excellent equipment and everything else was first-rate. Beds were comfortable and towels were fluffy. There was no wi-fi but a computer was provided which was connected to the internet.
Only disadvantage was having only one shower for the 5 of us. Would recommend also adding shelves in the bathroom for toiletries and a waste basket. And another mirror in other rooms.
It was quite warm at times so a fan would have been helpful.
Location was superb as it was just a tram ride away into the center of town and the street had interesting shops and restaurants.
they will bring you everything directly in your apartment.
The apartment is located in the 4th floor with elevator.
The price of the apartment is reduced from Euro 2.450 into Euro 1.400 per week, because there is a building site nearby.
