About this listing
Beautiful newly renovated apartment in historic building with ideal city location
This beautiful and newly renovated apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a traditional Viennese historic building in a quiet side street lined by chestnut trees in the centre of Vienna.
The apartment has been fitted out with loving attention to detail and guarantees an absolute feel-good factor for your stay in Vienna.
The apartment opens into a hallway with cupboard, bathroom and WC, in addition to a practical storage room (with washing machine) and leads into the generously sized and sunny living room / bedroom.
The living room / bedroom is south-facing and benefits from the traditional Viennese historical flair with its high ceilings and parquet floor. It has a modern and fully equipped new built-in kitchen with all mod cons, dining table, wardrobe and chest of drawers in addition to a modern and comfortable sofa bed (140x200).
The apartment also features a new flat screen television, stereo system with iPod connection and mobile internet (NEW: now also available for ipad/iphone)
The apartment is only a few minutes’ walk through the green Venediger Au (park) to Praterstern, the central transport hub in Vienna. Connections to the underground railway lines U1, U2, tram lines O, 5 and all major high-speed railway lines are available here. This is also the location of the largest terminal for the popular Vienna City Bikes.
The centre of Vienna (Schwedenplatz - Stephansplatz - Kärntnerstraße) is only a short journey by underground or tram (only two stations away) or 15 minutes by foot.
All shops for daily needs are located in close proximity to the apartment, along with numerous restaurants, genuine Viennese pubs and bistros, Wiener Prater, Riesenrad, Messegelände Wien and trendy Karmelitermarkt. The two largest and most important local recreation areas - grϋne Prater and the Wiener Donauinsel (Danube Island) - are both only five minutes' walk away.

I stayed here for 4 nights, attending a conference at Messe Wien. I would highly recommend this flat!
Flat: Great! Comfortable. Clean. Well equipped kitchen. Safe. Several flights of stairs to climb but not an issue for me.
Location: Great! 25 mins train from airport. 5 mins walk station to flat (Praterstern station). 10 mins walk to Messe Wien. Very easy/ quick access to major tourist attractions and city centre.
- try Restaurant Tempel (20 mins walk, or 5 mins) car. Fabulous food and reasonably priced, they do an early bird dinner menu too.
- Stephan very kindly agreed to a late check out - great guy!
- communication was faultless.
So, another great experience! Thank you Stephan and Airbnb.
Stephan's house is wonderful..Very well (email hidden)e train station was just a 5 minute walk..The house was very neat and tidy..There were a lot of brochures already in the apartment and a book for all the things you could see in Vienna..Although our stay was short, we had a wonderful time in Vienna at Stephan's place..He was very responsive and had arranged for everything in his absence..
L'appartement était vraiment tel que décrit: convivial, relativement propre et facile d'accès.
Le seul point négatif: l'appartement est situé au quatrième étage et il n'y a pas d'ascenseur.
Pour des jeunes, pas de problème. Mais nous sommes des séniors. Beaucoup plus difficile.
Stephan was very helpful. We had a little incident when arriving on the house because of the door lock, but everything was prompt resolved. The house is very close to public transportation, which is very important. The neighborhood is ok and we had no problem arriving late in the evening. The building of the apartment is old but the apartment itself is renovated and nice.
For us the only negative side of the apartment was the cleaning. It was not perfect, especially in the bathroom.
Overall it this apartment is ok for the relation price/quality.
Stephan's was very helpful and great communication. His flat was in a great position - Prater being a very nice area, so close to the train station, shops. If you don't mind 3 floors of stairs, it's a great place to stay. Very quiet area and yet handy to everything. Thank you Stephan for a great time in Wien.
Points positifs: appartement comme comme sur les photos, et proche du centre en métro
Points négatifs: Stephan n'étant pas la, on a était accueilli d'une manière impoli et agressive par deux personnes énervé qui probablement gère cet appartement pour Stephan, aucune présentation de l'appartement ni des commodités . Les personnes ne parlent pas anglais donc aucun moyen de communication...
L'appartement ne possèdent pas de volets ni de rideau opaque donc pas de grasse mâtiné.
Le chauffe eau est très bruyant et s'allume et s'éteint sans cesse.
Je ne conseille pas cet appartement , en tout cas je ne reviendrai pas.
About the Host, Stephan
I am a young professional working in London and Vienna.
I love Vienna and want to give a 'homebase' in this fantastic city for other friendly people as well.
If you also fancy "white spritzer" or still need to find out (what the heck is that???), this is just one (but not the least) reason to come to Vienna!
Vienna is waiting for you...
