Our apartment (about 50 square meters) is divided into a spacious kitchen/dining area, bathroom with shower and WC, a comfortable living room with sofa bed and flat screen TV, and a cozy sleeping gallery with two beds. We can accommodate four people.
The kitchen comes equipped with a new stove with a glass ceramic range, fridge, microwave oven, toaster, plates, cups, glasses, silverware, pots and pans and various kitchen utensils. Our guests are welcome to cook and feel at home.
We are in a quiet neighborhood, nonetheless with lots of flair, only 3 minutes away from bustling Schwedenplatz where you will find the best ice cream in Vienna as well as all the bus, tram and subway connections to Vienna’s more out-of-the-way attractions.
Our guest flat is situated just a few minutes’ walk from world-famous heritage sites. You can leisurely stroll through Rotenturmstraße which leads directly to Vienna's most famous landmark, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and Kärnterstraße, the most beloved and popular street for shopping.
Hofburg Imperial Palace (seat of the Habsburg Monarchy) and the famed Lipizzan marching horses, the State Opera House, the Burg Theater and the English-language Theater in Vienna are nearby.
Don’t miss the stunningly well-preserved marble museums such as The Art History Museum and directly across The Natural History Museum, the Albertina Museum, famed Cafe Central where Leon Trotsky and famous writers would debate and play chess. Don’t miss strolling through all the gorgeous, well-tended parks: Stadtpark, Volksgarten (Rose bushes galore!), Burggarten (Butterfly House) and Augarten with the famous Augarten palace where the Vienna Boys' Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben) and the Augarten porcelain manufactory are located.
Enjoy a break at one of the countless coffee shops and restaurants (everything from old-style Gerstner, Griensteidl or Demel to modern-day Starbucks and McDonalds). Numerous tourist and souvenir shops are along your way. When you are tired from walking around, continue your tour in one of Vienna’s famed-Fiaker tours (horse-drawn carriages) with guide to enjoy Vienna in grand old-style.
Our holiday apartment is best and most strategically located for walking around and discovering the most beautiful spots of the city.
We are also in walking distance from the Viennese Prater with its large amusement park, the Riesenrad (Ferris Wheel) and the Hauptallee (main avenue) lined with chestnut trees.
Due to its relatively high percentage of Jewish inhabitants before WWII, Leopoldstadt gained the nickname "Mazzesinsel". This context played a significant role in Leopoldstadt gaining “twin-city” status with New York City’s borough of Brooklyn in 2007. We are also a stone’s throw away from famed Karmeliter Market, a trendy open-air fruit and vegetable market, with a vegetarian restaurant, bakeries, coffee shops, etc.
And when your feet hurt from exploring Vienna, take a day off and spend it in the Wellness Center of Dianabad, just around the corner from our apartment, where you can swim and relax surrounded by palm trees.
Right outside the apartment is a small park with a playground for children (Sperberpark) and a spacious underground parking garage (for a fee).
You have your own personal entry and 100% access to the holiday apartment, which is its own independent unit. The flat is just 3 steps off ground-level so there's no need to wait for crowded elevators or lug luggage up long Viennese staircases. Easy in, easy out!

Annemaree and Motti were fantastic hosts. Check in was smooth and they were very welcoming, they explained everything in the unit and where the unit was positioned within walking distance to old town. The bed was comfy and was ample room for my partner and I. They were very accommodating and assisting with a small travel request without hesitation. We would recommend this unit to anyone wanting to stay in Vienna.
Location was fantastic! Near to cruise centre and metro. Lots of restaurants and coffee places surrounding the place.
Motti showed us how everything in the apartment works and communication was always prompt. On the last day we had some problems getting a cab and Annemarie kindly helped us call for one even though it was early in the morning.
Great stay overall, comfortable beds.
Annemarie and Motti were welcoming, generous hosts. The apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable. It truly was an astounding location - a walk of a few minutes have you in the centre of the beautiful old city. We highly recommend it and would love to return.
This was a great place to stay! Very close to the center of town in Vienna, and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. They made sure we were very comfortable in the apartment and knew the ins and outs. Our airline had lost our bags, and they were very accomodating with the resulting changing arrival time. They also did their best to help by providing towels, shampoo, etc., and letting us use their phone to call the airline. Overall they were very welcoming, and the apartment itself was very cute and well maintained. The pictures on the listing are an accurate representation of the apartment.
