My flat is situated in a typical Viennese old house near the city center and therefore perfect to visit many of the famous sights (10 walking minutes to Opera House). Free tea and coffee, shared use of washing machine, Wifi, Nintendo Wii, TV, …
Large, cosy and sunny flat in a typical Viennese old house (with 3.40m high rooms) on the 4th floor (no lift). Your room with one bed is something special: it lies on a 6m2 high-platform in about 1.90m height in my working room. I only have to walk through the working room to get to my sleeping room. Otherwise you have the room more or less for yourself. And there are curtains to make the platform a very private space.
Shared use of kitchen (with free tea and coffee), bathroom and living room. You are welcome to use Wifi and TV. A washing machine and dryer can be used for a contribution towards expenses.
Towels, bedlinen and if you wish also shampoo and showergel are provided. There is also an iron and a hair dryer available.
Interaction with Guests
If I have time I'd be happy to show you around Vienna or go out for a drink, lunch or dinner. If I have no time available I can at least offer you some information and tips on what you could do in Vienna. If there is time we can bake a strudel (a typical Viennese dessert) together.
My flat lies in the 4th district and is 10 walking minutes from the Opera House and the city center and five minutes to the famous Naschmarkt. There are a couple of subway-, bus- and tramstations nearby.
There are lots of small shops, nice restaurants and bars in this district.
My flat is a good starting point for exploring the city by foot but there is also public transport around my flat: U1, U2, U4, 1, 62, 59A, 13A, Badner Bahn

Die Unterkunft ist toll und Karin ist eine herzliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Die Lage ist ideal um Wien (zu Fuß) zu erkunden und die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel sind auch sehr gut zu erreichen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Vielen Dank noch mal!
I had a delightful stay at Karin’s place. Her home is beautiful, cozy, super clean and tastefully decorated by her own art works. The location is great, after a 15-mintue stroll, you’ll get to the city centre, no need for public transport. Karin is a great host. She is very responsive and helped me plan for activities; also I totally enjoyed my chat with her. Oh, she even put a chocolate on the pillow as a welcome gesture, which I find very warm and touching.
From the booking stage to the stay at Karin's, all went smoothly. Karin is welcoming, friendly and helpful. Her quiet apartment is nice and clean and the bed in the high-room is very comfortable! A 15 minute walk into the centre of town is convenient as there's no need for public transport unless you want to save your energy (in which case there's a metro a short distance away)! I'd recommend it for sure, no problem!
Karin is an awesome host! She provided me detailed instruction before my arrival. The apartment is super nice, you will get a taste of Viennese life. Easy access to everywhere, the neighborhood can be better in terms of location and quietness. Thanks for hosting me!
She was really kind and the bed was absolutely nice! I enjoyed very much:) also she gave me a lot of informations about Vienna. That's also help you if you don't have enough time to think about me where you need to go. If I'll go Vienna again, I'll stay her room again maybe :D lol
The you very much Karin!
It was a great stay at Karin's house ~ the 'high room' is located at Karin's multi function study room with cute staircase and high ceiling~ the neighbours are also quite friendly! the location is really convenience and walking distance(8-10mins) to the subway station(Karlsplatz)
The instructions provided to get to the apartment were easy to follow and very helpful. I was welcomed at the apartment and shown round. Everything was as the online description. The apartment is lovely. Karin was very helpful and friendly.
I love to travel but right now I don't have so much opportunity to do so, therefore I would be happy to host people of different countries and cultures. If I have time I'd be happy to show you around or at least provide you with information and tips.
I like meeting friends, go geocaching, photography, visiting musicals, doing my own handycraft, reading books, playing badminton, biking, hiking, playing escape games, cooking, and much more.
My personal philosophy: Life is too short to waste it. You determine what you do with your life. Just do it!
