French living in Vienna, Looking forward to welcoming you very soon
Abbiamo soggiornato nell'appartamento di Alex per una settimana, la nostra esperienza è molto positiva, l'appartamento è come descritto nell'annuncio, su tre livelli, ricco di oggetti di design, molto curato e pulito
We loved Alex's place! It was perfect for a family with two teens - plenty of space, two bathrooms, and reliable wifi (from the bottom two floors). The neighborhood was busy and vibrant without being overwhelmingly packed and we found plenty of good places to eat and shop. Transportation is excellent with the subway just around the corner and a short 15 minute ride to the sights in the 1st district.
We had a wonderful and pleasant stay at Alex´s apartment, he was a great host, just as i like it. On our arrival we were greeted by himself, the he showed us around in his apartment and explained the most important appliances to us.
The flat is exactly as described, very spacious with a modern/arty touch. The next metro station is within a 5 Minutes walk, so are other shops, bars and restaurants. I would stay at this apartment anytime again.
See you soon! all the best
Alex was an excellent host! He accommodated our late evening arrival which was very much appreciated. The flat was spectacular with 3 floors to move between - as we were 4 X ppl - this was more then enough space (no need to worry about tripping over eachother!)
The location was perfect - just 1 block from the main shopping street and well within walking distance of major attractions.
Bars and restaurants are surrounding the area - the hardest part was choosing where to go!
Can highly recommend this place for singles and couples! For families it may be a bit difficult due to the amount of stairs.
The experience was fantastic for myself and friends - can highly recommend Alex's flat.
Thank you again Alex!
Thank you Laura, see you soon
Smooth, easy arrival and key exchange with Alex. The apartment is very spacious, hip and comfortable. Clean, modern and beautiful bathrooms, well stocked kitchen and lovely patio area. Reliable, fast wifi. Very conveniently located near a grocery store, incredible Thai food on the corner, just a block from the U and major retail stores, and in 20 minutes walking you're in the Museum Quarter. Great choice for your stay in Vienna.
This is a fine place to stay in fantastic city with an accommodating host. This very large three-floor apartment is just as described (only better!) and includes large bedrooms (with very comfortable beds), massive bathrooms, a washing machine (so there is no need to overpack), plenty of storage space and multiple sofas, chairs and tables. The kitchen area (there is no microwave; the single-cup coffee machine uses Nespresso pods; there is also an English-style tea kettle) on the upper floor is compact but perfectly functional. The building is very quiet and yet handy to public transportation of all varieties and is situated nearby the Westbahnhof train station. It is a 3 minute walk to the U-bahn and trains are so frequent that you can be in Stephansplatz in 10 minutes after locking up. There is all manner of retail, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, take-aways, etc., all within easy walking distance (including a grocery and a bakery just around the corner). The upper-floor outdoor area is a real bonus in a city as compact as Vienna and it includes plenty of seats and even a gas grill. I could go on but overall our experience was first rate and I highly recommend this property to anyone who is reasonably fit (there are a lot of steps) and wishes to visit Vienna in a stunning space with all of the comforts of home. The only quibble we had was flaky wi-fi. Evidently it is shared with an adjacent apartment and multiple devices render it unreliable (and useless on the upper floors) so bring an ethernet cable.
here is my review of the apartment in German. You know my bad english.
Wir (Eltern mit 2 großen Mädels) hatten einen sehr schönen Kurzurlaub in Wien dank der wunderbaren Stadt und auch der charmanten Wohnung. Danke für die Flasche Wein und den freundlichen, unkomplizierten Empfang. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und dank der sofortigen Rückmeldung (Handtücher, Kaffeekapseln für Nespressomaschine (nicht für Nescafe Dolce Gusto) und Sicherung) bestens betreut. Das Internet ist super. Die Lage genial für Einkaufen, Ausgehen und gut angebunden an ÖPNV. Alles fußläufig in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Gerne kommen wir wieder und wünschen viel Erfolg mit dieser tollen Wohnung. Gruß Gisela & Fam.
I'm very picky when it comes to apts when I go to places but this one I would totally recomend. It will pleasantly surprise you with its triplex setup and the huge (and I mean huuge) bathrooms as well as the funky kitchen on the 3rd floor. This is a one of a kind place among all the same thing different street places in Vienna. Alex was very accomodating and we had a great time there.
Alex was very responsive and tried everything to accommodate our requests and made us feel welcome and at home. The space was clean and there were all the necessary bathroom and kitchen equipments including e.g dishwasher and washing machine.
The 170sqm triplex is a wonderful space. The townhouse couldn't be any more conveniently located, with the buzzling Mariahilfer Straße right around the corner it is still an absolute heaven of quiet. Before moving to the US I was living in the area and every time coming back it is more lively. Mariahilfer Straße is the best shopping area in the City, so popular that it has been transformed recently into a pedestrian street. Around the area you will find many small cafes either traditional (try Café Jelinek) or hipster, shops (try the small shops surrounding Neubaugasse, Kirchengasse and Lindengasse) , bars and restaurants. The metro/underground line U3 brings you directly into the heart of the first district (Stephansplatz is just a 4 stops ride) and to the connecting lines to the airport.
The style is typical Gründerzeit with thick brick walls that create a good room climate throughout the year. The townhouse itself spreads three floors facing the small interior garden.
The design of the place is wonderful. As mentioned in the description it is a triplex featuring entrance/family room, big bathroom and separate bedroom on the first, one bedroom with separated toilet and a huge bathroom on the second, and kitchen and roof garden terrace on the third floor.
The staircase however is not separated by any walls, so the bedroom on the second floor is an open space. Well sometimes you have to make sacrifices for design quality - just be aware if you rent as a group - you will be rewarded with one of the most unique and wonderful places in Vienna.
