Going back to airport? Book a taxi in advance as low as 26 Euros fixed price!

Other Things to Note
Please be advised:
Early check-in before 11am and late arrivals after 8pm are charged with 10 Euros; after 11pm with 20 Euros (cleaning staff will have to take a taxi to get home).
Calculate a lateness of 30 min (60 mins if you are traveling by car) into your expected time of arrival. If you arrive over 1 hour late please pay an additional 10 Euros/hour. The cleaning staff is instructed to overlap their cleaning with your arrival to counter this possibility. So please be polite and understanding if they still have some work to do when you arrive.
Read the booking confirmation email from airbnb for exact description of how to get to the apartment from your transport hub.
The owner is not able to do the key exchange himself as he is a very busy person. We kindly ask for your understanding.
The apartment lies facing Praterstrasse which is a main road with plenty of infrastructure. Some people who are extremely sensitive to some minor sounds of cars at night might want to make use of earplugs.
Just a few common sense points:
NO cigarettes, candels or incent sticks please - I've experienced a FIRE first hand and I put it out myself (It was very scary).
In Austria people take shoes off in apartment. The floor is new.
Please keep noise down after 10pm. Many neighbours have to get up early for work.
Please smoke ONLY in the hallways out of an open window out of courtesy to the next travelers staying at the flat.
Please THINK about the environment and turn OFF lights you don't need (We don't have nuclear plants in Austria so you are actually burning fossil fuels and creating CO2 every second).
