The Space

The two-storey penthouse has on the upper floor, a large bedroom (30m2, 320sq.ft.), equipped with a kingsize bed, a wardrobe and a desk. An 8 m long windowfront leads to the huge roof-top terrasse (30m2, 320 sq. ft.) which surrounds the room on two sides. From the terrasse you have a view ranging from the city centre to the mountains surrounding Vienna. On the leafy terrasse there is a cushioned outdoor lounge sitting 4 people, a canvas chair and a barbeque. It gets direct sunlight until early afternoon and in the evening.

On the lower floor is a spaceous common area (45m2, 490 sq. ft.), a bathroom with a bathtub and a separate toilet. In the bright common area there are a fully equipped kitchen, a dining table, a bed-sofa and a sound-system. WLAN internet is available in the whole apartment. Visitors are requested to water the plants during their stay. Bed-linen and towels will be supplied. The apartment accomodates up to 6 people in a king size bed, a pull out sofa and an air bed. We can supply a babycrib and a baby-bouncer if requested.

The historic center is within walking distance (25 min.), or easily accessible by tram (10 min.). The subway-station (U6 Alser Straße) is within 2 min. walking distance. In the area there are numerous shops and restaurants.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had all in all pretty good staying in Cornelia and Michael house, (having very low expectations since we were traveling with baby and 5 year old girl). The flat is big and bright, on a terrific location (you can put your self to sleep with echoing sound of horse carriage as they go home in the evening, tapering of to silence). All the plants and details gives a pretty good vibe to place, and Michael and Cornelia were kind to arrange even a lovely decorated Christmas tree to welcome us (as well as bottle of good wine and milibrot for the kids ). They also left a lot of toys for the children and they loved their time there.

    Still, on the down side, it would be nice if they have made us more easy, or more clear about many little staff - for instance about the use of washing machine - it should be activated with some kind of credit card, the type of which we didn't have, and it was unclear whether we could buy it ... so we ended up with washing on hands.
    Also, the door lock needs some special kick to be open (which we didn't know about) so we had very unpleasant half an hour in front of locked door on the hallway with crying children and none of the hosts answering their phones.. until we discovered know ...the kick ( to repeat, which we would LOVE to be told about in advance). It was Holiday time, and I understand that both hosts were busy elsewhere, but still we felt pretty abandoned at that point, and it is not experience I would like to repeat.

    But, as I sad, the staying was good in overall and I would like to thank Cornelia and Michael for everything :-) !!!!

  • Everything was fine. Cornelia and Michael were very kind. They helped a lot with advises and information about Vienna.
    The flat is spacious, fully equipped and really not far from the city centre. because our baby stuff (buggy and bed) we were happy about the lift and the relaxed parking situation.
    Perfect base to explore Vienna and great value for money. Thanks.

  • Penthouse with a Great View is truly a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful flat, very spacious, great view and in a wonderful area of Vienna. We had the pleasure of meeting Cornelia and she is amazingly helpful. The information she gave to us for dining and sightseeing recommendations as well as helpful tips were perfect. Extra touches made our stay so great. Public transportation was easy to get to from the flat with maps and information provided by the host. We had a wonderful stay. When we return to Vienna we hope to be able to stay again!

  • A small mix up with timings and phone numbers led to some confusion, but that was very quickly sorted out.
    Michael and Cornelia’s apartment is really nice, spacious, tidy, and obviously lived in, which made it very easy for us to “move in” for a few days.
    It is full of plants as well, which makes a really relaxing atmosphere.
    The location has good transport links, and once you get your bearings, you can walk into the town centre easily.
    Michael was really helpful giving us tips on places to go locally and further afield.
    Top marks, I would definitely stay here again.

  • The appartement of Cornelia and Michael has a lot of space, is bright and light and near the U-bahn, in three days we visit a lot of "must seen places" in Vienna and the appartment was a sort of homecoming after a day of much walking, biking and seeing.... thanks for that.

  • Bell' attico in zona centrale, ben servito dai mezzi pubblici e negozi.
    Parcheggio auto nelle strade adiacenti un pò difficoltoso per tutto il giorno. Televisione, lavatrice e lavastoviglie assenti, ..........formiche presenti.
    Nel complesso, giudizio positivo, consigliato.
