Ich bin vormals Steirer, jedoch nunmehr bereits eingefleischter Wiener, auf jeden Fall ein leidenschaftlicher Gastgeber ! :o)
It is a very comfortable and clean apartment. Equipped well - you have all you need (even more). Good location, close to metro and West Bahnhof. The host is very hospitable and thoughtful.
It is with "GREAT PLEASURE" we write this review.
We have traveled the the UK extensively along with North, South and Central America. We are presently touring several countries in europe.
Over time we have developed (what we use as) a point system and also bonus points. We judge every item necessary for a comfortable stay. (email hidden). 1-5 points then bonus points. We do this because it helps us to try and find what we need over the internet. And. In most cases this IS difficult.
Peter's, "EXTREMELY CLEAN, VERY WELL EQUIPPED, and ORGANIZED" apartment scored the highest points!!! We never paid for A/C or a view. We were there during 35-38c temps and that was difficult. but our choice.
Peter greeted us upon arrival including all necessary details of which we needed to be aware.
Peter had sufficient amount of pristine clean white bedding, towels organized and folded to perfection as though this was a 5 star North American Hotel.
There was sufficient lighting, (2) two fans, freshly clean curtains on the windows a Mac for guests use and TV with minimal english speaking stations Incl. CNN.
It is refreshing to live in an apt.not having carpet for added cleanliness. Peter left more than sufficient coffee for 8 days. This is the first time we have ever been left an expresso machine (automatic) for our use. And. All the coffee we could use.
The fridge was also perfectly clean, not having left others half used items behind. NO Freezer.
The WC was spotlessly clean and decorated with style.
We mentioned in conversation how the bed was a little hard for us never expecting for one second or even thinking he should change anything. Peter picked up on this immediately. In a few hours came with a replacement. WOW!!! Who could ask for more?
Peter in our opinion was a perfect host and truly is in the right profession.
We could go on and on about a young man with whom we have never met until beautiful clean Vienna. But. I think we have said it all.
When asked to leave our opinions we do and sometimes not so pretty but always with integrity of what we have experienced.
Thank you Peter. And. To airbnb, Peter is a keeper!!!

This is a very small apartment in the spare, corporate style, as can be seen from the photos. But it functions well and was very clean. It is a short metro ride to the center, or 30 - 40 minute walk. a major shopping street is a few blocks away with a large super market. Peter was exceptionally helpful when flooding kept changing our travel plans. He is a real asset.
Unfortunately the apartment looks out on an air shaft in the kitchen and a narrow space in the living and bed rooms. The primary view from the living room is of the elevator shaft. I am a bit claustrophobic so combined with the small rooms this bothered me, though it might not bother anyone else.
Also, because it was warm at night during our June stay we left the windows open which made for noise from the restaurant below. It was fairly quite with the windows closed and Peter says air conditioning may be installed at some point.
We liked our stay in Peters appartment very much. It's cosy, very well equiped with WIFI, comfortable beds, a kitchen where you can cook a proper meal and it's close to the Westbahn Station. We specially liked his espresso machine.
Peter was a great host - prompt at responding to my reservation request and great at communicating. The apartment was in a great location (accessible to walk to all tourist sights), identical to what is shown in the pictures, spotlessly clean and was a great home away from home. I highly recommend this flat and thank Peter for helping to make my stay in Vienna a memorable one.
The apartment was exactly as what was shown in the pictures, tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture. The location was great too, walking distance to many restaurants and shops, and a supermarket just down the street. The nearby Westbahnhof connected us by metro to wherever we wanted to go. Upon our arrival at the airport, Peter gave us very detailed description of how to reach the apartment by public transportation, there was no way you would get lost. We took the taxi though because of our heavy luggage. Peter was also quick to respond to all forms of communication, email, sms or calls , from the time I was reserving the apartment up tp our arrival.
But what really made our stay more memorable were the little details Peter went through for his guests. No need for us to go to the nearest tourist information office, Peter had all the brochures neatly stacked on the shelf, from museums to concerts, walking tours, the opera, you name it, it was there. We also loved that the dining and kitchen utensils were complete. There was the right kind of knife, pot or pan for your every need. The mattress, pillows and linen were of high quality. Thank you Peter for a wonderful stay in your apartment. You were a perfect host! We highly recommend Peter"s apartment to future guests..
Response from Peter:
i´m getting red ;o)
Thank you for these nice words and the time you spent for this review!
Hope to see you again if you come back to Europe.
warm regards from Vienna,
Peter is a superb 'host', responsive and thoughtful. The apt. is as classy as they come with all new fixtures with contemporary decor. I slept on a fold-out couch but heard from my roommate about the heavenly bed.
The 57A bus is a few blocks away on Gumpendorferstraße and goes straight to the city's RIng (center). The subway (U Bahn) is several blocks away in the other direction so logistically, it's well-situated. Peter also provided bikes w/locks, maps, restaurant suggestions, etc...
I hope to stay here again in the near future and heartily recommend it.
What a great place! Peter was an amazing attentive host! We stayed 5 nights and wished we stayed at least 1 or 2 more. The place was spotless, comfortable with a computer, wifi and a washing machine. We loved being right by the Westbahnhof station even though we only used it 2 times we walked everywhere! He left us 2 bikes to use which was great, definitely take advantage of biking around town or to Schönbrunn Palace along the river. We ate breakfast at the cafe across the street that he recommended and also "a classical viennese "wirtshaus" with traditional austrian food. it´s just a 10min walk away from your apartment and it´s not a touristic place Gastwirtschaft STEMAN, Otto-Bauer-Gasse 7 1060 Wien" we loved it what a great way to start your vacation! He also sent use an email to let us know about a special concert that was happening while we were there! We would definitely come back and highly recommend staying here! Thanks Peter!
The apartment is in terrific shape in a very nice location. Everything is closeby supermarkets, shopping districts, train station etc. Just 2 stops from the main tourist districts..The apartment is very nicely maintained and has all the top notch amenities - new beds, big screen HDTV, really good italian coffee machine, internet was fast ..everything that is mentioned exceeded our (email hidden)ter was a terrific host and was very organized to make sure we had what we needed and also updated us on the happennings in the city during out stay (e.g. like popfest which was great in Karlplatz).
Thanks Peter for an enjoyable stay at your apartment.
Great location near the Westbahnhof U-Bahn stop, close access to central Vienna. The apartment is clean and modern with everything you need. Nice little cafe across the street for breakfast with reasonable prices. Additional note, if you drive park at the Apollo Garage, close by and only 11.50 Euro per night. Peter is an awesome host, attentive and responded quickly to all questions for anything we needed.
