From the AIRPORT
Take any city-bound Schnellbahn (literally means Fast-Train) or the more expensive but faster CityAirportTrain (CAT) from the Airport directly to the station "Praterstern". Expect up to 30 mins wait time; then 25 minute ride. Get off at station. Get on Praterstrasse. 1 minute walk. That's it!
Alternatives: Take a taxi. Should cost around 30 Euros. About 30 minutes drive.
Going back to airport? Book a taxi in advance as low as 26 Euros fixed price!
From WESTBAHNHOF (West Station)
Take U3 (Orange metro line) to Stephansplatz
From there take U1 (Red metro line) to either Praterstern or Nestroyplatz.
From there walk 1 minute to Praterstrasse 59.
This should take you around 20 mins.
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 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).
The apartment is really nice, convenient location, easy access to everywhere. It's also very clean and spacious. Ana is very helpful and communicative. Highly recommend this place.
Nice stay, everything was clean, the communication with Ana was very clear. Highly recommended.
L'accoglienza è stata buona la casa era abbastanza pulita. Purtroppo siamo stati a Vienna, penso nell'estate più calda degli ultimi 10 anni e l'appartamento è risultato caldissimo. Il quartiere non è come ce lo aspettavamo, effettivamente a 5 minuti dal Prater ma a mezz'ora di cammino dal centro . Il forno non (website hidden) casa manca di manutenzione, non ci sono dei lumetti sui comodini Infine non è indicato che la lavatrice è a pagamento 4 euro a lavaggio.
The flat has all that you need. Well located and full equiped. However it was too hearty and noisy in summer.
A beautifully decorated flat in a great location (close to the HUGE ferris wheel). Ana was welcoming and hospitable, ensuring we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and showing us around the flat.
Ana was very helpful and patient. The apartment is just like in the description.
Its very close to the metro station and the neighbourhood is really nice.
The listing description is very accurate. The apartment was very nice. It is right down the road from the train and metro station.
