What Past Guests Are Saying
Great service - great location - could'nt have asked for more
This apartment was everything we could have asked for during our week long stay in Vienna. It is a beautiful, comfortable, quiet, classic high ceiling apartment with all the amenities we wanted. We were literally steps away from the bustling Naschmarkt, theatres, shopping, taxis and transit and most of this beautiful city's main sites were within a kilometre walk.
Christian is a friendly, gracious and very helpful host. We look forward to returning here again.
Bellingham, WA/Washington DC
This apartment was the perfect place for us to stay for a week. It had all the amenities anyone could need at a great price. It is in a perfect location right near the Naschmarkt where we got lots of yummy food to put in the full kitchen. We walked everyday down the main shopping district to Stefansplatz and to any museum in the city center. The beds were comfy with big down comforters and the place was spotless. It felt very safe with two sets of locking doors to get in. It was very quiet as well...we couldn't hear anyone else in the building or any traffic. Christian was very easy to work with and flexible with all of the international questions we had about money and directions...his English is perfect too! He gave us a phone for the week as well, which was nice. We had wifi that was reliable and access to a laundry room which are very helpful when you come from another country. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel like they are living in the city for a week to enjoy a centrally located apartment-style living. I am so glad we didn't stay in a hotel!! 5 Stars for sure!
Pat & Mike
Fabulous Location, Large Comfortable apartment
Great location, we were able to walk everywhere and the metro is just around the block. Christian lives right on the premise so checking in and out was exceptionally easy. Huge bedroom with comfortable bed. Apartment is very close to the Naschmarkt. Would definitely stay there again.
New York City, New York
Old world elegance in a superb location
My wife and I spent 6 nights in this one bedroom apartment and loved its "fin de siecle" charm and somewhat sparse but stylish jugendstil antiques. Clean, well equiped, spacious with a semi-firm and confortable bed, this rental met all our expectations. Christian, the host, is friendly and attentive. Best of all is the perfect location. You are only steps away from excellent restaurants, the Secession, two opera houses and the u-bahn. It is situated directly between two great residential neighborhoods which should be explored -- Weiden on the east and the delightful Neubau to the north west. The latter leads you directly to the Museum Quarter.
A great place to stay!
My partner and I stayed for 3 weeks in the terrace apartment and found it very comfortable and very convenient. Chris was a great host, providing directions from the airport and assisting with other practicalities along the way. The apartment is sizable and very clean. The location can't be beat if you're interested in Vienna's museums, concerts, opera house, Ringstrasse, the Naschmarkt, John Harris gym, as well as good restaurants, nice wine bars... all of these more or less a block or two from the apartment.
We had a fantastic stay in this apartment - the location could not have been better for getting about Vienna. The owner, Chris, was extremely friendly and helpful. And true to it's advertising - you can certainty walk to the Opera House, as well as Naschmarket, in your high heels.
Thanks Chris we had a wonderful time.
Believe the hype: forget looking at hotels in Vienna
A fantastic experience in Vienna. Really great apartment, steps from the Naschmarkt and the Opera. Huge bedroom with high ceilings and comfortable bed and a full bathroom with an extra toilet as well. Chris is a very helpful guy and speaks perfect English. On top of all that, the place has character. Highly recommended!
Christmas in Vienna
I stayed in Christian's lower level apartment for a week at Christmas 2011. It was a huge space for one person. The bedroom and bathroom were larger than any I've rented in Europe. Christian chould not have been nicer. He assisted me with showing me the washer and dryer units and how they operated. I will absolutely stay here again when I'M in Vienna,
Classy apartment - Old Vienna Charm
My partner and I stayed in this apartment for six days. The apartment is very comfortable - complete with everything you need for a longer-term stay. The apartment is also very beautiful, and nice for a romantic vacation, as well as being functional.
Apartment is also very well situated - walking distance to all major sites. Cafe Sperl was our go to cafe during our stay, and we would highly recommend it!
The host Chris is very helpful and accommodating. We would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
Nata and Joseph
Fantastic location, easy access to major tourist attractions.
Short walking distance to subway.
Close to Naschmarkt, grocery stores and a short distance to Denn's Biomarkt
Nice apartment, good size, very comfortable bed.
Safe and secure neighborhood.
La casa è molto carina -The house is very nice
Sono stata con mio marito una settimana e ci siamo trovati molto bene .
L'appartamento è in un bel palazzo d'epoca , accogliente e comodo,il quartiere è centrale ma l'appartamento è tranquillo. Il proprietario è molto carino.
I spent a week there with my husband and we had a realy nice time.
The apartment is in an old beautiful building, friendly and comfortable,the neighborhood is central, but the apartment is quiet.
Also the owner is very friendly
I loved staying in this apartment, around the corner from the wonderful Naschmarkt with its scores of market stalls and excellent, varied restaurants. And the building is genuine old-Vienna, kept in great condition.
Christian was a most excellent host - attentive, but not intrusive, and totally reliable. Thank you, Christian!
The apartment itself has a very large bedroom, an extra WC, a terrific bathroom. All of it very clean. The beds were super comfortable.
Hard to find fault with anything here. The apartment is quiet, looks into an inner courtyard, but also very dark, not enough light in the apartment for my taste and the artificial light in the kitchen was too florescent, I thought. But this is all besides the point. If you're looking for an excellent place to stay, this is it.
green valley, az
wonderful stay in the greatest city
we stayed in this apartment from sept.1- oct.1,2011.
the apartment is in a great location and still in a quiet setting. it has a well equipped kitchen, wonderful king size beds, nice bathroom with the bonus 1/2 bath. there is one minor complaint the lounge was uncomftable.
Elegent and comfortable apartment, great location
Very stylishly decorated old-style apartment, great bathroom with full bath, great location and spotlessly clean. On a quiet street 5 minutes' walk from Karlsplatz and right next to the Naschmarkt. Lovely apartment with everything you need, and Christian was very friendly and helpful to me when I left something behind and he was happy to post it to me. Very positive experience all round!
Apartment lives up to its imaginative name.Perfect location for visiting cultural Vienna on foot or on excellent public transport. Spacious bedroom overlooks a quiet pleasant courtyard. Obliging owner who facilitated our request for an early check-in and provided a mobile phone on which he could be contacted if necessary.
Los Angeles, California
Great flat, incredible location, gracious host!
We were a little nervous about this, our first apartment vacation rental, but Chris (the owner) made it a breeze from beginning to end. The flat is lovely, gave us room to stretch out and a full kitchen that help cut down on dining costs. And the location is fabulous - we were able to walk to everything, with shopping, restaurants and all the main sights close by. There are stairs to be climbed to the second floor (1st floor in Europe). Cannot recommend this rental highly enough!
Location, space and a taste of Vienna
Location was excellent for seeing Vienna and close to the market for food and restaurants and yes, close to the Opera with or without high heels! The building and fittings felt like part of Vienna's architectural story . Christian made sure we knew all about the apartment and was on the spot if needed.
Great location with an old look & feel
Stayed in this apartment over the summer with my two grown-up kids.
Pros: great location to visit Vienna, beautiful old building and quiet setting, nice welcome from Christian who's also very available for his guests, well-equipped kitchen, use of a washer/drier, comfortable king-size bed.
Cons: the apartment is on elevated ground floor looking onto the inner courtyard, and there is little daylight even in the summer. With modern, light-colored and comfortable Ikea-type furnishing and fixtures (hangers in the bathroom, a modern dining room table+chairs, a desk in the bedroom), the apartment could easily become more comfortable other than to sleep.
Heart of the action
Fabulous location in an architecturally significant building. Easy walking distance to opera, museums, restaurants, trams, and subways. Christian was very flexible and made our stay most enjoyable.
Great experience in Vienna!
We loved our stay in this appartment: first, I stayed there with my parennts (75 and 77 years old), and when they had left, I stayed there with my husband. Everybody loved their stay.
Pros: 1) great location, very close to the very centre of the city and to the metro (U2 and U4), 10 minutes walk to all the museums.
2 minutes walk to the market place and supermarket "Billa" to buy fresh fruit and water.
2) Chris is a great host, he went out of his way to accomodate us in every possible way.
3) Appartment is very quiet, good night sleep.
4) It has well equipped kitchen with microwave, fridge, oven and dishes (maybe only toaster was missing)
5) It has 1.5 washrooms, which is important, when you don't live alone.
Cons: I didn't like the fountain in the inner yard (that was on from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.), the sound of constantly running water got on my nerves. But maybe it's me; somebofy else might find it very soothing (?)
Great Vienna Location
Christian was a great host, giving us wonderful locations for eating. The Location is central and allows you to walk everywhere and very safe and very quiet. The Christmas markets were open, all nearby.
The arrangement of the apartmen is a little strange, with a very large bedroom and a very small sitting/dining room. The kitchen is well equiped.
Very comfortable beds and wonderful linens.
The photos don't lie! The apartment is located in a stunningly beautiful building. Every time you walk through the front door you feel privileged to be there. It's also on a courtyard, so it's very quiet. You'd never know that the you are in a city. The location could not be better. You're perfectly situated to enjoy the Innerstadt, but the building is removed from the crowds. The Naschmarkt is 2 blocks away, and I am quite sure that we walked to the opera in less than 10 minutes. Christian was a lovely and gracious host. We could not have asked for more!
a nice place in a beautiful city
great position walking distance to Opera house Museums Market we had an enjoyable stay...Chris is very helpful with everything..
The apartment is in a lovely building and is comfortable, very spacious and elegantly furnished. It's very centrally located and convenient, but also very quiet. Christian Rosenberg was always courteous and efficient. An excellent place to stay.
Perfect Location,Beautiful Interiors,Exceeded Expectations.
My partner and I stayed here for the week after Christmas/New Year's and completely enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very nice. I've lived in Europe for a decade now and have seen many types of apartments and this is a beautiful building in a perfect location. It was easy to walk in the morning to the markets,spend some time shopping around town in the very center and come back 'home' for lunch/dinner and if we liked go back out again,completely on foot. The metro is near but we found the bulk of our stay we did not use it at all. There are a few nice cafes just around the corner as well so if you are having a lazy day its not impossible just to step out and take advantage of any of the super close amenities either. While we were in Vienna it was rather cold and it was always nice to come back to a warm apartment. The owner is fantastic to deal with and I would really recommend this location and apartment to anyone.The antique furniture is beautiful and just completes the entire set of rooms beautifully. Communication with the owner was professional at all times. We arrived quite late at night on our arrival date, Christian had thought of everything and we were able to go directly to the flat, and check in with no problems. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. I love to cook and found pretty much anything I needed to cook with utensil wise etc.
Lovely apartment and Gracious Owner
This is a really lovely apartment in a great location of Vienna near the Naschmarkt and Secession Museum, just a few blocks from the Opera. Everything is very comfortable and clean. Chris, the owner was very gracious and accommodating. I had the unfortunate experience of having to go to the hospital early in my stay and he very kindly called around for the best place for me to go, called me a cab, and came downstairs to make sure the driver knew where I was heading. He was very accessible throughout with any questions we had and great to work with. We would definitely consider staying here again on a future trip to what is one of my favorite cities.
For us this was the perfect apartment, in the perfect place! The owners were so kind and gracious, and the apartment was absolutely wonderful. It was spotless, roomy, and beautifully appointed. Made only more perfect by the fact that it was an easy walk to all the places we wanted to go. Museums, the Opera, Musikverein ... in fact, Theater an Der Wien was just around the corner. Again, perfect!!
We can hardly wait to go back!
Amazing Hosts; Highly Recommend!
My experience is an unusual one: our travel was interrupted by the volcano eruption that affected so many.
During that stressful time my communication with the hosts was the only smooth and easy experience.
Oh, what a relief it was to reorganize our dates with the accommodating and supportive hosts! Oh what a difference it was compared with the unresponsive airlines!
Though we didn't make it to Vienna, the hosts returned our deposit without us asking for it.
Thinking of them brings a smile to my face, and I am working hard on organizing our trip and staying with them in the near future.
The perfect apartment for classical music and museum lovers!
This is definitely the best apartment we've rented in Europe. We rented it for a month during Christmas/New Years 2009-2010. The owners, Eileen & Christian, were kind and helpful, even providing coupons for a major mens’ store and museum passes, both of which we used.
We found that we could be in our seats at the State Opera or at the Musikverein 15 minutes after leaving the apartment. (Use the Karlsplatz metro station to avoid having to wait at the crosswalks.) The Museum Quarter is a five-minute walk away which makes it easy to attend evening-hour viewings.
I’m over 6 feet tall and found the king-sized bed very comfortable with duvets as light as meringues. The weekly cleaning service included doing any personal laundry that we had left in the mesh bags provided. We appreciated the extra-long bathtub, since rentals often only provide small showers. There is a Billa supermarket right around the corner and the kitchen is well-equipped. The apartment is quiet since it’s located on the courtyard, so we would recommend that you take an alarm clock.

Our pied-à-terre in Vienna
The apartment is wonderfully quiet, spacious, and
well-equipped. It location is simply perfect, in easy
walking distance to almost everything of importance
in Vienna. Proximity to the Naschmarkt and the Opera
are a huge advantage. It is also very close to
inexpensive parking for the car we needed to go
Our hosts were most gracious and helpful. We
definitely want to go again.
Paul and Betty
This flat is in a great location--convenient to the Naschmarkt and a supermarket and within walking distance of most of what you would want to see in central Vienna. It faces a courtyard rather than the street, so it's quiet. Eileen is very helpful and has good suggestions for restaurants and shopping. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bathroom is roomy and up to date; there's also a half-bath. The bedroom is elegantly spacious and has plenty of storage for clothes; the king-size bed is the best we have encountered in our travels overseas. The flat-screen TV gets satellite programs in a variety of languages including English, though the couch opposite it is stiff and uncomfortable. That's really our only quibble. We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful, home-like place to stay
We had a great stay at this apartment. The location is great, and it was wonderful to stay in a real old Vienna apartment - although with all the modern amenities. The beds are super comfortable, there is wireless internet, and Eileen even gave us a cell phone to use while in Vienna. Would highly recommend it!

Comfort and convenience in equal measure
From here you can walk in high heels not only to the opera, but also to the Secession, the marvelous Museums Quartier, the beautifully Baroque Karlskirche, the vibrant Naschmarkt, the historic Cafe Sperl, and the bustling scene on Mariahilfer Straße. Just a three-minute walk in either direction to two U-bahn stops, this is the perfect launch pad for exploring Vienna.
Charming and comfortable as it is convenient, this apartment has much more to offer than its great location. Tastefully decorated with Art Nouveau furnishings, it whisks you back to turn-of-the-century Vienna, but with plenty of contemporary comforts. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and spacious, and the huge bedroom boasts a heavenly king-sized bed.
Eileen and Christian were discreet, yet hospitable hosts. All transactions were handled very professionally, but they were also flexible and accommodating.
Whatever brings you to Vienna, you would be hard pressed to find better comfort, convenience, or value anywhere else. I would stay there again in a heartbeat, and intend to recommend it to anyone seeking fittingly fabulous accommodation in a wonderful city.
Home away from home and more!
This wonderful LARGE one bedroom apartment is located in an ideal neighborhood, just around the corner from the Opera and the Naschmarkt (the most wonderful outdoor food market in Vienna). It is only a minute or two from the U-ban station and a short walk to the center ring.
When you enter the building through huge wooden doors into a cool lobby with marble floors and high ceilings you are in old Vienna. Up a flight of marble steps and through another set of tall wooden doors you come to a wonderful apartment with wood floors, antique furnishings, modern bathrooms and kitchen and all the comforts of home.
The bedroom is huge with an extremely comfortable king bed. The kitchen was fully stocked and if there was something you needed the owner was more than happy to provide it for you.
When we arrived we were greeted with friendliness and given many recommendations for places to shop, health clubs, yoga etc etc. If you ever had a question it was quickly answered.
And on top of all of this there was maid service once a week, laundry facilities and a cell phone was provided for our stay! Oh yes, and internet service too.
There was nothing we lacked during our 3 months in this great apartment. We found that everything Vienna had to offer was at our fingertips.
Again I will say that the owners were wonderful. They were there when you needed them and responded immediately if you asked even the simplest questions and they were invisible when you did not need them. The perfect landlords.
I would reccommend this apartment to anyone who wants to have a home away from home in Vienna and get a feel for what living in Vienna is all about.

An elegant apartment in the heart of Vienna
I came to Vienna for a conference and wanted to get away from the hotel experience. I found the listing for this apartment online -- based on the pictures I was thinking, wow, this place is going to be expensive. It wasn't too expensive at all, cheaper than any hotel that I saw, and infinitely better.
The location is superb, with an open market nearby, easy access to the subway station and other popular attractions.
The area around the apartment is quite safe, and there are three sets of locking doors between the outside world and your apartment. During the daytime it can get a little noisy outside, at night, it's super quiet.
The apartment itself is much more spacious than I expected, it has an entryway, which branches off to a full kitchen to the right and toward the living/dining room and master bedroom on the left. The real jewel of the apartment is the large bathroom and the extremely spacious and simply appointed (elegant, not pretentious) master bedroom. The bed is large, appears to be a "king size" or larger. All throughout the apartment, the very high ceilings (3.5+ meters) give a very open and regal impression.
Eileen and Christian are intelligent, thoughtful, and gracious hosts who respect your privacy and independence.
They live in the same building (separate apartments, of course), so they are close by in case of any problems or questions.
They also provided me with a cell phone for use during my time in Vienna. All I had to do was call a number to add money. They were flexible with me when I couldn't pay them exactly as planned (ATM had a 250(?) euro limit on withdrawals).
I would easily recommend my closest friends and family members to stay there, and I certainly intend to stay there again on my future trips to Vienna.
