About this listing
Cosy, light and quiet room in elegant, high-ceilinged period apartment. Centrally located, restaurants, cafes, galleries and a cinema are all literally downstairs. Walking distance to Vienna's cultural centres and transport hubs.
Sunny, cosy, quiet room with single bed and view to a charming backyard in large, beautifully furnished flat in classical Viennese style. The room is appointed with a cupboard, a dresser, a bedside table and a "butler" (a coatrack).
Shared kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The large and bright kitchen is provided with a table and chairs. Guests are welcome to use the fridge and prepare light meals.
I usually have my meals in my dining and living room which I consider as my private area. There's also a couch next to the stereo system. When I am away, guests are welcome to use this room, too.
Interaction with guests
I like to have chats with my guests and give them tips about sightseeing, restaurants, public transports etc., when I am at home. However, I work full-time and often go out in the evenings, also I am occasionaly away for short private or business trips, so I appreciate independent guests who also can do without me.
Lovely neighbourhood, full of trendy cafés, bars, shops and galleries (near the famous Naschmarkt).
Walking distance to the historical city centre.
Some restaurants I can recommend:
- Cafe Bacco: Great authentic Italian restaurant in the same building (next door). Chef Alberto from Tuscany offers a daily varying menu based on fresh and seasonal products, starting with a range of bruschette, followed by various antipasti, a choice of pasta, a main course of meat and a dessert. The full menu costs €35, if you leave out some courses you will pay accordingly less.
- Taste of India: Indian restaurant on the opposite side of the street: Tasty Indian dishes, reasonably priced.
- Zweitbester, Heumühlgasse 2 (around the corner): Young and modern restaurant, very good food (vegeterian as well as meat and fish), creative recipes, excellent burgers, sunday brunch, in teh evenings occasionaly dj-music.

I am an art historian and paintings conservator, working in a museum in Vienna. As such, I regularly visit art exhibitons, and love to go on short trips to historical cities and cultural sites of Europe's past. Since a few years however, much of my spare time is dedicated to my passion of Tango argentino, and whenever time allows I travel around visiting festivals and marathons, dancing days and nights in a row... Apart from that, I am interested in literature, film, theatre and music with a broad taste ranging from indie pop to classical music, from hip hop to world and crossover.
