You opted in for a little stylish room on a bright corner right in the center of Linz' old town, with a view of the castle. Transportation, restaurants and bars are right around the corner while here it is still quiet most of the time!

The Space

The 3-bedroom apartment is located smackdab in the center of Linz, next to the castle, a couple of walking minutes from the state theater (Landestheater) and 3 walking minutes from the main square (Hauptplatz). We are in the historic part of the town, however, the apartment was remodeled and renovated in 2006 and looks new.
There are numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants in the close vicinity, including a hand full of really good veggie-friendly places. Festivals, like the annual "Pflasterspektakel", The Cloud of Sound, the Linz Fest, Renaissance Festival or the Ars Electronica Festival are all within walking distance as well. Still, it's quiet to stay at; we are (email hidden) and do have soundproof windows. ;)
There are theaters nearby, many museums, a park across the street, the Danube within five minutes walking distance, a public pool about a mile from the place. And the shopping district is just around the corner. The closest grocery place is in the building next door.

The place is wheel chair accessible with some reservations: There is a little step in front of the house (comparable to a street curb). The apartment is accessible via elevator. There are three more steps into the lower part of the apartment (guest room, kitchen and bathroom are located here), however, if needed, we can work around that.

In spring 2012 a little, very friendly mixed-breed called "Nougat" joined our household; he is pretty sweet and won't be found in the guest room. We still want to give those allergic to dogs a heads up! Also, we are not a child-free household anymore! (Thus, depending on the time of day, the tidyness may differ from the condition on the photos. ;) )

And last but not least, we also can offer you a free wireless internet connection and can provide you with a prepaid SIM-card for your phone.

Guest Access

You have your own private room, you also will have access to shared areas, such as the kitchen, and the bathroom. We have a second restroom right next to the guest room. (Which we use as our recycle room; i.e. glass, paper and plastic-bins are sitting in that room.) It has a toilet and a sink, which many guests like to use as their own private restroom.

Interaction with Guests

I have my office in the same building, so most of the time the place isn't empty. And since we have joined the group of parenting hosts, we are usually around a fair amount of time during the day. Depending on the weather. Guests who prefer having lots of alone time can make use of their private room.

The Neighborhood

Anthough we are in the very center of the city, we appreciate the "everyone knows everyone" attitude around here.

Getting around

The bus stops right in front of the apartment and tramway stops are just a few hundred feet away. Parking is tight, but there are a few places around here where you may even park your car for free. The train station is about twenty walking minutes and less than ten by public transportation.
A bus connects from there to the airport as well and hosts just a few euros.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Mario and Rebecca are wonderful hosts and they made us feel very welcome. The apartment is in a very good location right in the Altstadt and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit the charming city of Linz.

  • Mario and Rebecca are very nice, laid back, and open. Their two children are very calm and want to get to know you. Their house, even though it's hidden away, is close to everything you would want in Linz. Besides the expected "night life" noise, the neighborhood is pretty chill and the Alt Platz has numerous cafes and shops around. Over all this place is great for a short or long stay!

  • Rebecca & Mario waren äußerst angenehme Gastgeber. Das Zimmer war gerade richtig für mich. Der Ausblick auf eine Strasse mit einer begrünten Mauer war schön und ich habe sogar bei offenem Fenster gut geschlafen. Ich kann das Zimmer bei den beiden Gastgebern Rebecca & Mario wärmstens empfehlen.

We are a couple in their early 30s and enjoy both the fun of traveling and getting to know new, openminded people. Turns out, travellers often times fit this description, so we are happy to be able to share our place with nice people and exchange stories and experiences. Both of us have stayed abroad for longer stretches at a time – Rebecca used to live in southern France for a year and Mario in the US for five. Music is a huge part of our lives: Mario also used to drum for a bunch of bands, is on hiatus at the moment though. We both enjoy reading and the occasional good movie, as well as a couple of TV shows. Rebecca is a passionate cook and Mario is into sports; we both like to ride our bikes on- and off road. We like to swim and occasional work outs. Again, we love to travel and share a passion for NYC and Berlin; however, we aren't done with discovering places by any means. Professionally we have been working in the online and marketing world for well over 10 years and Mario also teaches at a couple of colleges. We run our own business – which is located next to our apartment – and enjoy the freedom of being our own bosses a whole lot. We want to provide an open home to nice people and love being able to have intelligent conversations with awesome people. On the other hand, we also provide privacy and are grateful for an apartment that has ample space to allow for everyone to have their personal space not being violated. A few more random facts? Alright: Mario used to be in the finals of the Sexiest Vegetarian Alive contest a few years back, while Rebecca helped built her first company at 21 and we both have a thing for the 50s and 60s – wouldn't you know, we own a '58 Ford. Last, but not least, we wanted to take the chance to say a big THANK YOU to so many awesome people we had the pleasure of getting to know in the past. You are the reason why we enjoy doing this as much as we do! P.S.: No, we are not big Oktoberfest buffs, despite the photo ;)
