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!

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
EARLY check-in before 11am is only possibly if guests before you have left early. This is subject to a 10 Euro surcharge in cash. Same goes for a LATE check-in after 8pm. If you check-in AFTER 11pm please give the cleaning staff 20 euros so she can take a taxi home.
Also, there's is a mobile electric cooker unit in the kitchen instead of the stove displayed in the photos.
If you are a heavy smoker, this flat might not be for you. Reason: Some people have complained about the smell of smoke although the last guests smoked outside.
All walls and floors in the 2 main rooms are newly refurbished. Please use with care.
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). Separate glas/plastic bottles and paper from the rest of the trash for recycling please!
The neighborhood was safe and an ideal location right near the train station. Steve's apartment was clean and spacious with lots of sun light! I would recommend it for anyone. Internet speed could have been faster though.
This was an excellent place to stay for us while we were in Vienna. It is older but well kept, spacious and clean. We were able to wash our clothes for no charge which was wonderful. Ana was there to meet us and gave us a great orientation to the apt and the area. Walking to the centre is about 15 minutes but there are lots of restaurants and smaller shops near the apt. We would definitely stay there again. Easy access to the eurovelo 6 route getting in and out of the city.
Very nice appartment, clean, clear and convenient! Good location (2 mins walking from Praterstasse station, where the train arrives from the airport). Good coffees spot nearby too! Walking distance from old city. Ana waited despite our late arrival (our flight had delay), very nice of her!
Excellent location, wonderful apartment. Check in was very smooth! Easy access to metro and area has many nice cafes and shopping. Apartment was exactly as described, very spacious for two ppl, clean. would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a wonderful time in Vienna
Great location to explore the city from, close to the metro and reasonable walking distance to the centre of town.
The flat was comfortable and had everything we needed for two people.
Ana was also very friendly when we met her and explained everything about the flat.
Thanks for a great weekend.
