About This Listing
Cool, charming, big apartment only a few minutes walking-distance from Vienna's magnificent tourist-popular historic center! Located in a family-friendly neighborhood, it can efficiently accommodate four. Old-world charm, close to all subway lines!
Please feel free to communicate with us in English, German or Hebrew.
Our guest apartment is in Leopoldstadt, the 2nd Bezirk (District 2), a 5 minute walk from the historic inner city of Vienna, known as "Innenstadt", at the corner of Lilienbrunngasse and Negerlegasse. It is a very popular and trendy area, vibrant with many varied cultures. We are family-friendly and families with kids are always welcome!
Located right by direct non-stop Airport Bus; all inter-country and inter-city train stations with easy connection to Schwedenplatz Underground (Subway) which has in addition to U1 also U4 as well as easy no-additional-cost super-fast access to all other underground lines. Also tram (trolley car) lines 1 and 2 which take you to Ringstrasse is right here (or simply walk there) as well as easy no-additional-cost connection to all other tram lines. But the best thing is most tourist attractions are within a few minutes walk along scenic ways such as across Donaukanal (Danube). Oh, also all boat rides leave and return right from Schwedenplatz Donaukanal which is like 2 minutes from here, including to Bratislava! In short, it's right in the heart of the tourist zone! That means it's right for you!

דירת האירוח שלנו בווינה ממוקמת בשכונת ליאופולדשטט, הידוע גם כרובע השני והרובע היהודי של וינה. כיום – כמו בעבר לפני מלחמת העולם השנייה והשואה הנוראה– הרובע השני הוא מקום מושבו של רוב יהודי וינה, ובו ממוקמות מוסדות יהודיים, בתי כנסת ובתי ספר יהודים לרוב. דירת האירוח שלך בוינה נמצאת כ- 5 דקות הליכה בלבד מהעיר העתיקה ההיסטורית של וינה, מוקד פופולארי לתיירים מכל העולם כולל מישראל, המכונה "אינן-שטט" שפירושו העיר הפנימית. דירת האירוח בווינה נמצאת ברחוב ליליאנברון, פינת רחוב נייגרלה. כל האזור הזה מאוד פופולארי לתיירים ומקומיים כאחד, ותוכלו למצוא מגוון מקומות בילוי, ובין היתר גם מסעדות בשריות וחלביות כשרות, בתי קפה כשרים, מאפיות כשרות (כולל המאפיה הכשרה המפורסמת והוותיקה בשם Backerei הנמצאת ממש באותו רחוב ליליאנברון כמו דירת האירוח בוינה, מרחק פחות מדקה ברגל) וכן מיני-מרקטים גדולים וכשרים עם מגוון מוצרים . בנוסף, דירת האירוח בווינה נמצאת במרחק זריקת אבן מבית הכנסת המפואר והמפורסם של וינה הידוע בשם "שטט-טמפל" (בית הכנסת העירוני) שראשיתה בשנת 1826 ולמרבה הפלא כמעט שלא ניזוק באותו לילה הידוע לשמצה כקריסטל-נכט או ליל הבדולח. בית הכנסת העירוני "שטט-טמפל" שוקק חיים עם שני רבנים, חזן בעל-שם עולמי ומספר מקהלות.תיירים תמיד מתקבלים בברכה בשטט טמפל ובדרך כלל גם מתכבדים בעליה לתורה. בשטט-טמפל יש תמיד קידוש בשבת וכולם -אורחים, תיירים ומקומיים כאחד - מוזמנים. יש גם מסעדה כשרה צמודה לשטט-טמפל, כאמור מרחק זריקת אבן מדירת האירוח שלך בווינה.
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!
Interaction with Guests
Willing to explain public transportation options, order a taxi, explain where to find the different supermarkets, suggest tourist and local attractions
It's safe and family-friendly. Very close to Vienna's historic tourist-popular center but without the constant commotion (that means you can get a good night's sleep)
You are like a two-minute walk away from Schwedenplatz which is a major U-bahn (underground/subway) hub, with easy, speedy connections everywhere). All the tram connections like one-minute away. In a word, you're in the best, most desirable location. Like we all know, when it comes to real-estate and your precious holiday time, Location is Everything!

Annemarie and Moti made us feel most welcome when we arrived and were waiting for us just as described. We had a comprehensive briefing on the facilities, which included a modern hob cooker, oven, fridge, washing machine, ironing board, TV with all the bells and whistles, toaster and microwave - everything you would need for a complete self catering stay. It is functional and basic, but clean and practical for two people, or four in a family with two sleeping on a sofa bed downstairs. The apartment is ideally located for the old city, which is literally just a 5 - 10 minute walk away. The apartment is also superbly situated for public transport links - the number 2 tram just a short stroll down the road and a 5 minute walk to the underground. The airport bus is also only about 7 minutes easy walk away.
There was a welcoming bottle of wine, water and some snacks on our arrival, which was a really nice touch.
All-in-all just what we needed for our 5 day stay in Vienna.
Zum zweiten mal waren wir wieder in der Unterkunft von Motti und Annemarie. Was uns wieder sehr gut gefallen hat. Die Wohnung ist so zentral gelegen, dass man nur wenige Minuten in die Innenstadt zu Fuß benötigt. Die Schlüsselübergabe verlief super. Beim unserem nächsten Besuch in Wien würden wir uns wieder für diese Unterkunft entscheiden.
Annemarie and Motti... Thank you for letting us stay at the apartment. You were excellent hosts and extremely helpful in explaining everything to us. The position is quiet and although on the other side of the canel from the city centre, it was a short esay walk. The apartment easily accommodated the two of us and was well equipped. We will recommend you to everyone. Thank you for being so accommodating.
Very very good location and lovely hosts!
We had a nice experience.
There are supermarket near apartment, so convenience.
We’ll visit again.
Annamarie and Motti are very accommodating hosts and it was a pleasure to stay in their apartment - Annamarie meticulously gave us a tour of the apartment and patiently answered all of our queries at check-in . The apartment has all amenities that one would require and is located very conveniently. There is access to tram (Gelderstrasse) and U Bahn (Schwedenplatz) within a 5-10 minute walk.. Stephansdom and all other major attractions within the Inner Stadt are easily accessible through either of the two connections or even walking. There are a couple of supermarkets (Billa and Spar) nearby as well as a playground in case you are travelling with children as we were. All in all, we had a good stay and we will recommend this apartment to our fellow AirBnb users. However I would like to caution that while the apartment is good for adults, it is not ideal if you are travelling with a toddler as there is a steep staircase leading up to the sleeping area which can lead to accidents.
We really enjoyed staying in Vienna. The location was perfect with The Big Bus Tour stop at the end of the street. Also the beds were comfy and we managed to get all our washing done and dried and catch our breath after Turkey. Cheers to you both.
We stayed for 3 days in Annemarie and Motti's house. Everything went well.
The house has a great location. 5 min to airport bus station, around 10 min to Stephan's cathedral, 2 min to Sofitel Hotel, which has a great cafe and bar on the roof, 1 min to one of hop on hop off station by walk
If u are looking for a place to reach to everywhere in a short time by walk, u should choose the house.
