The Apartment is very central. Only 5 min too two Subway stations and several tram stations. 7 min to the city center with Tram 44.
Its in a cheaper, but also popular neighbourhood with a lot of bars, cafes, restaurants and young, artistic and educated and international people.

We can pick up the key easily followed by the instruction that Christian sent to us. The apartment is clean and easy to find. It has enough space to live for 5 people easily. We would recommend this apartment to others.
From the 5 fantastic apartments we booked on our trip, Christian's was the one we like the least. It looks nicer in the photos than what it actually is, for example the terrace was a very run down compared to the pictures and the views from it weren't nice at all. It was in July and it was very hot and no air conditioning, only a cheap noisy fan to cool you during the hot night. Kitchen was very old and the water heating system wasn't working well, when you turn the tap to the middle it will change from freezing to hot so we had to have quick showers, we let know Christian of this and he was willing to have a look but we weren't in most of the time and it looks like the problem was that the heater needed to be updated since it looked 30 years old, and we only were there for a couple of days on a weekend. Pillows were terrible. Neighbourhood wasn't very nice but not dangerous. The entrance hall to the building is very dirty and ugly, looks a bit dodgy but is better when you get into the apartment. Charging for drinks in the fridge and coffee capsules like if it was a hotel wasn't very nice, I think it goes against the Airbnb concept. Also €30 cleaning fee had to be paid on arrival in cash, there were reminders about it everywhere, which doesn't make you feel very trusted or welcomed, I would have much preferred that it was included in the price. The apartment was clean and had a nice lighting
Thanks for you feedback. But it looks exactly like on the pictures. There are quite new as the Apartment was just renovated. Well the only thing I could improve is the Terrace - but this done at the moment as there are growing some pest plants and this should be done with more care. The view over Vienna you don't have from the Terrace - it looks in the the roofs - but on the living room side you have a great view. So of course it has no Aircon - as nearly nobody in Vienna has an Aircon and its also not advertised with Aircon. Therefore there are 2 fans in it.
The water heating system is the standard system nearly every Apartment has in Vienna. Kitchen and Heating system are little older (but definitely not 30 Years old) but they are working without problems and the kitchen is very good equipped with everything you need. I only know that the shower handle is quite sensitive to use. You only need to make small movements to set the temperature - but normally everybody figures this out in a few moments. Pillows are very expensive high class down-feather pillows in the bedroom. But we also have some Ikea synthetic ones for allergic people. Normal Coffee you can take for free - only the capsules you have to pay or better just replace. To have a fridge full of drinks for free inclusive wine and everything can not be expected I think. I just put something in that there is something there - but you can just replace it. Cleaning will be paid directly to the Cleaning Lady if you want it with cleaning. I reconfirm that with every guest before I accept the booking.
We had a fantastic time staying at Christian's lovely apartment. It was first class - spacious, comfortable and with everything we needed, including views, terrace and the glorious weather.
Christian is a superb host and his communication and dossier of information we received before going was very helpful and covered everything we needed.
It is a safe place and ideal for both uBahn and the trams. Plus there is excellent local shopping.
Thanks for having us and we hope to return at some point

The place is beautifully styled and excellently cleaned. The location is a bit far from center and a good walk from the Metro Stations. My lowest appreciation would be that it works like a hotel, other hosts are more worm welcome and leave some items for your use. In this case even the coffee had to be paid...
Das Apartment liegt sehr gut. Es ist von dort aus alles sehr schnell erreichbar und man kommt sehr gerne auch wieder zurück ins Apartment.
Ich Danke dem Gastgeber für das Vertauen und würde jederzeit gerne wieder in diese Wohnung
Great experience, we enjoyed the apartment, very good location, we walked to the centre. Will recommend Christian to all our friends. Thank you very much!

I also let my apartment and hope people behave well, as well as I do when I rent a place.
