About This Listing
IMPORTANT: I moved in myself into this apartment and now renting it just whenever traveling or out of town. This means that there might be some personal things lying around, although I try to reduce that to a minimum.
Although there are some personal things in the apartment, like clothes, books, etc., you'll have enough place to hang your clothes and you'll enjoy a well maintained and professionally cleaned apartment.
The apartment is located in the heart of Vienna, right next to the first district - Viennas old city center (you can reach it within three walking minutes).
- T H E A P A R T M E N T -
You will enjoy a very clean and recently renovated place with brand new furniture. The lovely decoration makes the apartment the perfect place to chill after a long sightseeing or working day in Vienna! The place is spacious, offers 70 square meters and is basically divided in a full kitchen, a designer living room and a fantastic bedroom. Toilet and bathroom are freshly renovated as well. Although you will find yourself in a prime city center location, you won't be bothered by any street noise at all as the apartment is oriented towards the old and secluded backyard!

Easy to reach public transportation, all within walking distance: tram lines "2", "71", "D" / tube: U4 Stadtpark / night busses: N60, N66, N25, N38. There's a car rental agency just a couple of minutes away. If you prefer to take a cab occasionally it won't cost you more than approx. €8,00 to almost any central location (Vienna's city hall, Volksgarten, several museums and so on ...) There's a taxi stand in the same street. Moreover the apartment is just one tube stop from "Landstraße", where the City Airport Train (express train from Vienna's airport) arrives.
Other Things to Note
The B E D R O O M offers a very large (180 x 200) leather bed with ubber comfortable bed linen. Furthermore you will have enough space to hang your clothes. If there are three travelers, one can sleep in the living room! There's a very nice and cosy sofa, though you have to respect that it's not a convertible sofa bed. So I won't recommend guests, taller than 1.75 to sleep on it.
I am convinced that you'll love my place and that you'll enjoy your stay in Vienna. Just drop me a line if you have any questions!
I want you to have a good time at my place, however there are three important rules:
> Please respect the non-smoking rule at my place.
> Unfortunately I'm allergic to animal hair, that's why I recommend travelers with pets to look for some other place.
> Don't forget to lock the door when leaving the place :)
Nikola is an excellent host! His communication was clear, thorough, and quick. He provided detailed documents, instructions, and maps to ensure that my stay was both easy and comfortable. Nikola's apartment was perfect! It was quiet, exceptionally clean, very chic and stylish, comfortable, and welcoming. Niko went above and beyond with a personal note that I greatly appreciated. I'd highly recommend a stay at his apartment!
Last month, my wife and I spent a wonderful week in Vienna. The success of the trip was in large part due to our accommodations. Nikola is definitely hospitality oriented and was a very attentive host right from the time that we made the reservation. He provided us with detailed notes and a map on how to get from the airport to his place with several different options on how to get there. The subway lines and bus routes are conveniently located close by.
Although Nikola was out of town upon our arrival, he provided detailed instructions on how to start using the internet so we could get comfortable and oriented right away. The apartment is large and has been recently renovated. The interior is bright and there are plenty of generous sized windows that are easy to open to create a very comfortable cross breeze any time of day. Nikola actually lives in the apartment so it has a lived in feel that makes you feel at home. This is not simply an investment property used part time by visitors.
There were lots of nice touches when we arrived. Some small bottles of local wine to sample, classic Viennese chocolate wafers and a list of must see attractions that only locals would know about.
The location is also a strong draw, perfectly situated 3 blocks from the Lower Belvedere Palace,5 blocks from the Ringstrasse and 2 blocks from some excellent restaurants that were of excellent value. Also there was easy access to supermarkets in the neighborhood.
Vienna itself is a beautiful city with ornate architecture old and new. The city is teaming with culture and there are many free musical/ cultural/ cinematic activities going on all summer long.
Nikola was very attentive to our needs during our stay and even arranged to drop by to see if there was anything that we needed.
All in all we had an excellent stay at Nikola's. If you are visiting Vienna and Nikola's place is available, don't waste any time booking it. You'll have a wonderful experience!!!!
John and Sabina.
Прислал четкие инструкции, как добраться до квартиры. С хозяином приятно общаться и легко договориться.
Квартира находится в отличном районе (близко к центру, но тихо).
Квартира очень чистая. Стильно и красиво.
Окна выходят в тихий дворик.
На кухне есть всё необходимое (посуда, чай, кофе, сахар, подсолнечное масло, приправы и даже вино).
Квартира даже превзошла мои ожидания.
Nikola, огромное спасибо. Всё было замечательно.
This is the second time we stayed in Nikola's place and again we loved everything.
The house is very well located, comfortable and clean. And Nikola, even though we never got to meet him in person, is so nice and ready to help out with any question we might have. We totally recommend this place and hope to return next year once again.
I stayed at Nikola's appartment this April for a few days with a couple of friends.
We had a perfect stay and an incredible timing in Viena!
Nikola's appartment was all that we expected and more. The place is clean, new, well decored, has all the amenities that one needs, all the supplies are there, and the location is perfect! Supermarket around the corner, 2min walk to tram or bus, next to the centre within walking distance! Very nice area!
The host is well prepared and gave us a nice inside on where to go, what to visit, how to get there etc.. This was extremely helpful for our short visit so we could tackle all things we wanted to see! I would deffinitely go back if i was to travel to Viena again! I strongly recomend this appartment. You will NOT be disapointed at all! ;)
The apartment is spacious and nicely appointed. It had everything we needed and provided a good home base for our visit. Its central location made getting everywhere by transport or foot very easy.
Nikola was also a great host and was very responsive. He provided a lot of useful information on restaurants and touristy bits and was always there to answer our questions.

About the Host, Nikola
I am an open-minded student from Vienna / Austria and I discovered AirBnB during my exchange semester abroad in the US. Since I really loved the concept I finally decided to rent out my apartment in Vienna as well. I love the idea of traveling to a place and to stay at somebody's apartment and not in a hotel, since it's less expensive and you don't feel like a tourist, but more like a local.
I'm studying international business administration at the University of Economics and Business in Vienna. In my free time - unfortunately there's not a lot of it - I mostly meet friends for wine, coffee, lunch or dinner; of course love walking around in Vienna, doing some shopping- most times a little bit too excessively- and try to travel.
I would describe myself as open, friendly and always eager to make new experiences, meet new people and to socialize. If you have any questions about me or my place, please don't hesitate to contact me!! I promise to write back :)
