Great apartment with scenic views (6th floor) of Vienna's vineyards, close to the Danube, Vienna International City (United Nations building), convention center and the Prater, one of Vienna's main attractions.
The apartment is surrounded by parks but still very central (7 minutes walk to the subway: U1, the central line that takes you to Stephansplatz in 6 minutes). Proximity to the Danube means you can easily go for a swim, inline skating or take a stroll in a beautiful surrounding.
Large balcony, free high speed wireless internet and satellite TV available. The apartment is recommended for 2 people but it is possible to stay with 3 people as well (there is one spare mattress / airbed available).
Linen, towels, shampoo, hair dryer are available!
If you do not like walking to the red line station Vorgartenstrasse, there is a bus station 100m away from the apartment that takes you to the red line (U1), purple line (U2) and green line (U4) (walking normally takes 7-8 minutes).

I stayed at Benjamin's apartment for a whole month while I was doing an internship. Was very happy with the apartment and the amenities, you'll find pretty much anything a traveler needs. Very clean, very comfy, I felt at home after the first couple of hours. The location is convenient and easy to reach, all the necessities are within walking distance. The neighborhood itself is very quiet - even a little sleepy.
I had a great experience staying in Benjamin's apartment. It was within walking distance to the Messe Wien Conference Centre. Amenitites close by include a lovely park and an Aldi for your groceries!
Location: in a new developed residence area, very tranquil and pleasant.
Transportation: easy access to U1 and U6.
Apartment conditions: bright, brand new, and clean, with a lovely balcony.
Landlord: Benjamin is very friendly and helpful, I'd like to thank him very much for his nice apartment.
In short this apartment is highly recommended for visitors who enjoy fresh air and sunshine.
Alles hat super geklappt. Die Wohnung ist geräumig und das Badezimmer ist super ;) Falls wir mal wieder in Wien sind, wohnen wir dort gerne wieder.
I was staying at Benjamin's place for almost 3 weeks as I had a training assignment in Vienna, and I must say that was the best choice. The apartment is exactly as you see it on the pics. There is everything you need. It's very bright, clean, modern facilities, etc.. There was even some beer in the fridge!
Ben organized a friend to meet me to handover the keys, which worked out very well.
The area is a newly built residential area, not many restaurants and bars around, but you are in the city centre after 3 stops with the metro. The walk to the metro is around 7min which can be a bit long when it's cold and rainy (as in my case). But there is a bus just a block away which brings you to the metro in no time.
I must say I really enjoyed the stay at Benjamin's, and would definitely stay there again next time in Vienna. Great Place!
You, who is going to Wien, here are some facts about Benjamin's flat:
1, Here was the first time, I tried Almradler (a radler beer, 40% Marzenbier, 60% Almdudler). It was waited us in Benjamin fridge. I don't like beer, exept the Gaffel Kölsch, but I loved it!
2, His bookshelf is full of treasures. Asimov, Duglas Adams, Frank Herbert, Sartre, Fitzgerald, Wallpaper magazines-so if the weather is not friendly, you can find sg to read.
3, In his kitchen, you can find everything to make a meal. We had our dinner in the terrace. I loved to drink my first coffee there too, day-dreaming, staring at the hills.
3, From the appartment it took us 20 minutes to get to the Alte-Donau wich is extremly clean, and the strandbad was only 5€/person after 1pm.
We enjoyed our time in Benjamin's appartment, nex time we'll try to book again.
End of line.
Very nice apartment with all the necessary amenities.
Benjamin's apartment was fantastic. Very clean, had everything I needed and it was a nice homely haven to relax in after a long day of sightseeing. It is a studio apartment so the bed is near the living room but, as I was staying there by myself, it was absolutely fine. There is a separate bathroom with large shower, vanity, toilet and laundry facilities and this was all kept very clean.
It was very easy to get to, only a 7 min walk from the nearest train station and just a few stops into the centre of the city.
The area seems to be newly developed and it felt very clean and safe. There is a communal garden area in the apartment block area which is beautiful and used by people walking their dogs, families with small children and outdoor picnics etc. There are a number of supermarkets within 5-10 mins walk of the apartment.
Benjamin's communication was timely and helpful and I was able to collect the keys from his girlfriend at the specified place on time and with no trouble at all. On leaving, I was simply asked to leave the keys inside and shut the door - simple!
I would definitely recommend Benjamin's apartment to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Vienna.
Benjamin was a wonderful and courteous host! he went out of his way to make me feel welcome. he met me at the train station and even carried my bags all the way to the apartment - A real gentleman!
The place was even better than the pictures, a very nice and brand new apartment, completely stocked with everything one may need. it was 3 minutes from the bus stop, and about 10 min. by foot to the U-bahn station, and was a very central (yet quiet) location.
I am a bit of a neat freak - and this apartment was spotless! it felt and smelled as though it was cleaned just hours before I arrived, an attention to detail I really appreciate!
I would totally recommend Benjamin's apartment to anyone who wants a relaxed stay in Vienna, while still being close to all the main attractions :)
Benjamin's apartment is superb. I would definitely stay there again. I was somewhat concerned before arrival by an earlier reviewer's comments regarding the area being frightening for a solo female traveller however I did not experience this feeling.
The area is currently under development but is SO handy and once it's all completed I have no doubt this will be a very cool and lively part of vienna. As it is now businesses such as cafes and supermarkets are opening every day. Vorgatenstraße station is a pleasant 10mjn walk, especially through the snow covered park. There are also regular bus services not far from the flat to the station should the weather be bad or luggage an issue.
I arrived in the midsts of vienna's coldest springtime however benjamin battled snowstorms to meet me in good time and take me to the flat. The apartment is true to its description and is very comfortable, light and pleasant to be in. I only wish I had more time there so I could take full advantage of the supermarkets and cooking facilities whilst pretending to be a Viennese citizen.
