Description from the owner
Where else would you find the 3rd building every built in Vienna? Think about that. It is an old 13th century Monastery. You can stop looking. You have now found exactly what you were praying for. The building is here since 1389. and since 1765. it is home of Law University and two Chapels of St. Jvo.
The apartment is in front of Mozart House !
You are right in the middle of the city. St. Stephan Platz is 2 min walk and 1 min walk to Mozart' house literally. From there you have access to metro stations U-1, U-3, that can take to every place in Vienna.
This building used to be owned by Napoleon. He liked nice real estate...Read more
13th Century Apartment, Breathtaking Showstopper
Vienna City Center, Vienna, Austria
Additional Location Information
Can you imagine being in the Center of it all.? The very center. It is the 3rd building ever built in the city of Vienna. The first was St. Stefan's catheral. I guess it was a Monestary for the monks who served God and St. Stefan's. Today the church owns most everything in the neighborhood still. However it now houses Jewish Prayer Club/Temple. So the building has gone full circle. A great place for a Peace museum which is a goal of mine..... It is still the Peace Center of Europe...........This is a wonderful place to enjoy not only this building and apartment,,,but the best location in the best city in the world. You have to think about that...the best apartment. You will enjoy every minute here.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Charming apartment in the heart of Vienna, just in front of the "St. Stephens Cathedral". Very quiet, a lot of rooms, nice kitchen, free Internet access.
We had a great stay in this apartment. It's in the perfect spot to start any sightseeing outing, located right by Stephansplatz and also close to the Ringstrasse. The apartment is huge and beautiful, and it's in a gorgeous old building. It can sleep a large number of people very comfortably, with room left over for socializing and relaxing. Even the pull-out mattresses are really comfortable.
Very disappointing experience. Apartment very large but basics not attended to. Wet duvet and towels that were not washed properly and were completely threadbare. Second bedroom consists of a makeshift sofa bed General level of hygiene very poor Kitchen sink and hand basins semi blocked. Needs a good cleaning and general maintenance.
Response from Elisabeth Blodgett - 09/29/2013
Our apartment meets the highest standards and the guests are generally pleased. We had everything ready, but since the guests arrived very early things were a little damp. We have since bought a new washing machine and the machine is excellent and it outstanding Boesch which we all know if one of the best machines. We asked them if we could hand a few damp sheets in the storage room, and they didn't seem to have any problem with us hanging the damp sheets. But, I guess that they weren't pleased by it.
The bed in the 2nd bedroom is excellent and has gotten kudohs for comfort, but I am finding some people like soft others like hard, others like super soft. It is a question of preference.
Also sinks in both kitchen and bath are fine. We hope that they will come back I don't think that they are threadbare. Truely sorry they felt like that. they were so nice when they were here and smiled and said how wonderful things were? Quiet surprising the turn around.
They did leave the apartment spotless and we hope that they will have good continuous travels They were biking around Austria and I guess that was not easy either.!
New York City
An amazing apartment for an amazing time
Six of stayed in this super comfortable apartment. It's huge! Had everything we needed and then some. The two bathrooms were a welcome change from our previous lodgings.
The hosts were especially kind and helpful during our stay - I would definitely book here again on my next trip to Vienna - what an incredible place!
Perfect location and best communication
My family and I were here for 2 nights. We had a great time with the best location in Vienna. The appartment is spacious, lively and bright. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
Great appartment in a great location
First, the house is very special.
It is a very big appartment as a part of an old monastary.
Each room is big and comfortable and give a great feeling.
We got a great service when we arrived and the beds were ready also for the kids.
The location is amazing. We walked 2 minutes to get to Stephanplatz, which is the main square of vienna. It is also 1 minute walk from Mozart house.
I recommend this apartment especially for families, as it has a kitchen, washing machine and wi-fi.
Liska was great and helped us with anything we needed.
Best location - really enjoyed our stay!
Super awesome apartment in downtown Vienna
Hassle-free service, very friendly and reliable.
The most amazing 19th century building (or even older) you could possibly imagine, superbly renovated, hardwood floor, sound system, hi-speed wireless internet.
Less than one minute walking distance to Stefansplatz!!!
Redhead in kazoo
I consider myself to be a very picky person about places to stay. I know that when I am on holiday, I will be spending hours and hours on my feet. When I am done touring, I want to be very comfortable and elegance for me is part of comfort. This is a wonderful place to stay! I had my husband and my three grown children with me and there was plenty of space. I don't think the location could be better.
There can be quite a bit of noise on the street very early in the morning, so plan on closing the windows at some point, either before you go to bed or in the morning when you want to sleep in and business below has had other ideas.
I ran down the street to a kitchen wares shop to get an ice cube tray for the freezer, for all of us silly americans who need to have a few ice cubes in their sodas.
Simply the best
We went on a 10 day trips in 3 cities including Vienna, and this apartment was the best accommodation we had in the trip. It was so spacious and you would feel like living in an elegant home. The location couldn't have been better with just a few minutes away from St. Stephen church. There are plenty of restaurants in the area. Cannot go wrong. Highly recommended!
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We were with a group of 9 people in Vienna for a conference. Nine people in one apartement was a challenge but this apaartment offered plenty of space. The location of the apartment could not be any better and it is very quite despite it's location in the centre of the city.
The apartment is magnificient! You can truely experience what it is like to live in Vienna.
With 9 people it is somewhat unconvenient that there is only one bathroom and only two keys but the living space is enormous so still very suitable for big groups.
We had an absolutely amazing time in the apartment and Vienna! Next year we will probably book again.
I simply want to win the lottery and live in it until i die
To begin with i fell in love as soon as i saw the pictures on the internet. I contacted Liska and we developed an amazing connection. There were emails sent back and forth and she even called me in Puerto Rico! The place is unique, it has character, there is an incredible warmth to it. It felt like we all lived there all the time. There was no need to buy essentials...more than enough wine glasses, shot glasses, coffee mugs... it was close to everything. you just needed to walk and you were part of it all. I am definitely returning one day... they even gave us cell phones so we could separate and then meet again... it is a dream still.
What a great apartment and location
I spent only one night in the apartment but now I really sorry that we didn`t have more time to enjoy the place. The apartment is huge, it has 5 rooms and is right in the center behind the cathedral St. Stephans. It was easy for us to reach all the attractions and also to feel the spirit of the old city. There are a lot of coffee houses, grocery stores and nice restaurants in the area - actually everything is there- this is the center of it all.
The land lady - Liska is very nice , friendly and always ready to help. We didn`t miss anything during our stay. There were extras like a computer and printer that we were allowed to use and also cell phones for local calls. Better than Hilotn :)
With two words - I can highly recommend the apartment and the owner.Next time when we come, I hope to be able to rent again with you and this time for longer.
Thank you for your support.
Response from Elisabeth Blodgett - 03/26/2013
Thank you for the nice review.
Our guests are the nicest and they make life fun to see how they enjoy themselves and to help them make their stay easier is always a pleasure . Before they come we give them a Welcom Package so that they have that and they know all of the ins and outs of the City before they come and then they don't have to struggle with the "liitle things" which in the end become big things. We are always there to help with everything, as is the whole team. Please come and stay 1 night or 10 the pleasure is the same!
A good find
There is little doubt that this apartment has an exceptional location which makes touring in Vienna very accessible and enjoyable. The apartment itself is spacious, the beds decent and the apartment relatively tidy although we found it somewhat run down. It felt like someone had just moved out of their place for a few days to lend it to us. The apartment was filled with personal items, books, clothes in the cupboard, family photos and food in the fridge and kitchen cupboards, which one would not expect when doing this kind of rental. It was not too difficult to overlook this as mentioned, the location was great, it offered a lot of space, two cell phones were provided,wireless and the price was reasonable. Soap in the bathroom would be much appreciated. It should be updated with some new and fresh bath rugs; updated kitchen utensils with a better kitchen setup and general tiding up the place. The owner was very accommodating for us as we needed some flexibility around dates and greeted us when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay but would suggest a few improvements could go along way to making the experience a more comfortable one.
Response from Elisabeth Blodgett - 03/26/2013
The guests were very nice and I am very glad that they liked the apartment. I actually do live there when I am in Vienna, and I am gone about 60 % of the time and rent the apartment. I do have family photos , but 2 of the 3 closets are empty in the master bedroom and I tell the guests they can use all the food, coffee, drinks and wine. I actually leave that for the guests on purpose so that they don't get stranded without anything to eat or drink. I actually will put soap in the bathroom. I think that there was some there but maybe not in the show, so I will buy more kitchen utentsils and add more soap in the shower and I appreciate the suggestion. thank you.
Total Vienna experience
Located right in the center of Vienna and 12min away from Wien Mitte, it was very easy to discover the beautiful city. I would recommend this place to anyone! Spacious, very quiet, nothing was missing. Cosy and historical apartment. I very much enjoyed it.

Die beste addresse in Wien - It doens't get any better than this
From the moment we opened the door to this apartment we felt immediately at home. Liska was an absolute delight to deal with and has been so helpful since we first booked twelve months ago. Any questions have been answered and we are just disappointed she is not in town to thank her personally and invite her to our party here. This is a beautiful and peaceful private apartment with loads of character right in the heart of Vienna. It has everything you need plus more. It is just steps away from everything this beautiful city has to offer and a haven after a busy day. It is a private apartment and has the feel of being lived in, unlike so many places we have stayed in. Out of all of the apartments we have stayed in on this trip Liska's apartment is by far the largest, most superior and homeliest. We feel privileged to be staying here and living in true Viennese style. For two people it is perfect though it can easily sleep more if you are a family or group of friends. Liska has kindly allowed us to arrange a gathering of friends and family for a combined birthday party one evening. The piano is tuned and caterers arranged for a Friday night soiree with our Viennese friends (who think we have the best address in the city). It is the perfect home for entertaining. Liska, thank you so much for everything and especially for opening your home up to us. We will be back most definitely and we will tell all of our friends just how beautiful this apartment is. Our only problem is we know it will be so hard to leave at the end of our stay. We have loved staying in Europe again (and especially Vienna) so much so that plans are already in place to move here in a couple of years. Without a doubt we would live here in this apartment permanently if we had the opportunity of a long lease.
Thanks again Liska. I hope all of your future guests appreciate and respect your beautiful home as much as we have.
Great stay in Vienna
It was a great apartment and we loved the location and comfort of stay. The only issue was the bathrooms. We ran out of hot water after the 8th person took a shower. The apartment was clean and we had a great time
Liska was very communicative and flexible.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our reservation at the last minute so my boyfriend and I never had the opportunity to meet Liska in person or see her beautiful apartment. Liska was incredibly communicative, helpful and patient with us as we were booking and when we cancelled. She will be the first person I contact if I ever end up back in Vienna.
laguna beach, california USA
Truly is in the heart of all the historic sights. Grocery just 5 minutes away so we could cook a few meals. One flaw with the kitchen is the lack of a microwave, but we did manage just fine. The rooms are quite large. the area was quite safe and quiet. The available use of the cell phones was a nice feature. Beds were comfortable. Nice also to have use of washer & dryer.
great location, spacious and well organized
I have stayed for three days and enjoyed the stay as it was very close to city center and close to many attractions and famous streets , certainly it was great experience and I recommend the stay for few days .
Best location in Vienna and very spacious. There is only bedroom and 1 and 1/2 baths. The other sleeping accommodations are in the tv room and the living room on pull out sofas. The advertisement stated two bedrooms. The telephone number in the advance information was incorrect. Only one cell phone worked. We did not receive information on how to use the washing machine. Cooking would be difficult as there is limited cookware.
Response from Elisabeth Blodgett - 10/05/2012
There is a TV in the second bedroom.
I am sorry that the telephone number was different, but the booking was made 9 months in advance and the phone had changed since the phones we use are these local disposable phones. Washing Machine information is posted with the manuel, but I do think that it is a good idea to have it posted on the wall so that guests can find it easily.
I don't cook too much, but there are 6 pots and pans, so it would be enough for me and most people who are not gourmet cooks. I will buy more. We can always use more pots and pans............
Thank you for the suggestions
Exelent apartment in the center of Vienna
The apartment was great. It is placed in the center of te city and you can get easilly to any place without a car. The place itself is really big and comfortable with all the things you might need.
USA expat visiting Vienna
Location, location, location
This unit is close to everything. Maybe 100 meters to St. Stephans Cathedral and another 50 to the U3. Unit itself is a bit dated but very large. Do not know how many it will sleep, but with only 1 shower and 2 toilets, could get a bit crowded with a large group. At this price, expected liquid soap for shower and paper towels but neither present. No a/C but even with temps in 90's was comfortable sleeping.
Would probably stay here again.
Response from Elisabeth Blodgett - 08/02/2012
Thank you for the kind review. We are a 70's apartment which is kind of the fashion now, but we are not the cookie cutter Ikea Furniture Store apartment. Guests like the artsy nature of the apartment with all the art.
We try not to provide paper towels since it harms the environment and we don't like to cut down trees, but prefer cloth for the kitchen. We will provide more liquid soap to the guests, shampoo, and conditioner. We also provide coffee, tea, and milk. So when you arrive you have something to perk you up in the apartment.
We also provide cell phones so that you can keep in touch with your guests.
this was our second stay ever in a non hotel, being used to stay at top hotels like aman, w, four seasons etc it took us a few hours to realize this is not a hotel but our home for ten days. and when you had it was a really pleasant stay. the location is really amazing, close to the stephans platz and overlooking mozart's building. the apartment is big, compared to hotel standard its a president suite (225 sqm) but priced as a single room. the standard of the apartment is normal (feels 80's in style) so not very updated but clean and personal. all the gear you need like towels, soap, coffe etc are there, and loads of clever books to read.
if you want lot's of space (as we wanted for our family of four incl two kids) this is a bargain, and the location is - once more - the best you can get!
bonus was that we got two sets of cell phones from the owner that we could use for free local calls during our stay, very convenient and a nice gesture.
Beautiful in every way
Seven of us stayed here for a couple of days in early July, and all of us loved it. I think all of our jaws dropped at how beautiful and large it was (p.s. if you love art and bold or modern decorating, you'll find inspiration for your own home here). Each room is spacious and comfortable, which gave us our own spaces to unwind separately, and the dining room was perfect for gathering together without feeling cramped. The location could not have been better, allowing us to easily find meals, hop on the U-Bahn, or simply enjoy strolling around Stephansplatz. Liska made arranging to rent the apartment easy, and Milo communicated all the details we needed to enjoy the apartment and the neighborhood. I couldn't have been happier.
A marvelous apartment only steps away from the Stephansplatz
I spent a wonderful week in May with my wife, daughter, and son-in-law at Liska Blodgett's "Mozart apartment." Liska could not have been more accommodating before our arrival and answered our questions via Skype. On arrival, we were met at the dramatic ground floor entrance of the building by Miro, who was waiting at the door,helped with our luggage,and gave us a few helpful tips on operating the appliances.
We found the apartment just as advertised, with eye-catching paintings throughout. My wife and I took the very pleasant bedroom,and our daughter and son-in-law found the adjacent piano room with new sofa bed much to their liking. All rooms are very spacious. We plotted our assault on Vienna in the large dining room, where the laptop Liska provided proved very helpful. The kitchen was just what we needed, and the dishwasher, washer, and dryer all worked just as we hoped they would. The TV room was very comfortable and equipped with a fine flat screen TV, which we used only sparingly. Because the wireless internet network performed perfectly, we tended to use our Ipads, instead.
The location simply is unbeatable. The apartment building is only steps away from the Mozarthaus museum described in Rick Steves' guidebook and only a two-block walk from the Stephansdom and the Stephansplatz subway stop entrance at the intersection of the Kartnerstrasse and the Graben. We were able to walk to all the main sites in District 1. There are at least 10 good cafes within a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the building, all reasonably priced.
All and all, we had a first rate experience with this apartment -- and with Liska herself. I would happily spend another week there and highly recommend it.
Super appartement au centre de Vienne !
L'appartement est magnifique et très spacieux : 4 pièces immenses + une salle de bain + une grande entrée / cuisine. Tout est parfaitement équipé pour recevoir 10 personnes très confortablement.
En plus de ça, l'accueil est adorable et très arrangeant : la propriétaire nous a permis de repartir à l'heure que nous souhaitions le jour du départ, elle nous avait mis à disposition des serviettes de toilette, son ordinateur connecté à Internet, etc.
Cerise sur le gâteau : l'appartement est situé en plein coeur de Vienne, à 2 minutes de Stephanplatz.
Je recommande à tout le monde cet appartement.
Best time in Vienna with best friends in the most beautiful apar
My 10 best girlfriends and I stayed in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Vienna. If you are looking for an authentic interior and lots of space in a historical place - then this is it. The Stephansdom was only a few minutes away and living in this apartment made us feel like real "Wienerinnen". Cafés, Schnitzelplaces, fine shopping and historical sites were just around the corner...
All 11 of us had an own bed. Bedding, etc. was all provided for us. The kitchen offers everything and there is a big dining room to eat together. We had a great time. Liska and Miro gave us good grocery shopping tips. Since some of us left in the late evening on our last day, we were even allowed to leave all of our luggage in the apartment the whole day, which was extremely kind.
Liska was extremely sweet and helpful!! It was so nice meeting her and being able to stay at this wonderful place. She was always very quick in her responses and forthcoming with her help.
What I really liked the most was the kindness and help and the beautiful apartment, of course. There is nothing at all to mention that I didn't like. It was a great experience, especially because it was our first time using airbnb. I definitely want to visit Vienna again and when I do, I hope to stay at Liska's place :)
Nice flat I highly recommend it. Location is really great and the owners are really nice persons. I recommend it
The apartment is located in the heart of Vienna, close to all facilities. The rooms are cosy and comfortable.
We had a very nice stay!
Great flat, great location, great owners. Don't hesitate to book this flat, we had the best time!
This great apartment made our trip in Vienna absolutely amazing
Very large apartment, extremely well-located (very central), great kitchen, it is perfect for large groups, very enjoyable
lovely apartment in the heart of Vienna
We lived in this appartment for three nights with children. In the centre but very quiete to sleep in the morning. A step apart from all the Vienna attractives, so we could come with children during the day time, have a break and continue in the evening. Due to this apartment we could visit a lot of places of interest of Vienna. The metro station is a minute walking.
We liked very much the way Liska takes care of her guests. We didn't have a problem while stayng in her apartment. Also the reservation, internet communication and payment were easy to make.
Wonderful stay in Vienna
Our stay in Vienna was absolutely superb, in great part because of where we stayed. We loved the apartment and the neighborhood. The apartment is spacious and very nice. We could walk to the cafes, shops, supermarket and to several attractions (including Mozart's House, the cathedral). The Stephenplatz subway station is very close to the apartment and would take as everywhere (by the way, the subway system is the best one of any city we've been to). You can get a 1 week pass for 14 euros and use all public transportation in the city. I recommend using a garage called Freyung, near Herrengasse station where you can part for a week
for 144 euros. Even though the train system is great, we preferred to drive to Salzburg and Graz (both are a must see).
Another plus is the fact that we had 2 local cell phones provided by the Liska, which is very handy to place local calls and for locating each other.
If I had to do it again, I would stay is the exact same place (in fact I have already recommended to friends).

Loving life in Vienna!
Pictures do not convey the size or beauty of this space. Everything is convenient and within walking distance of the apartment. Liska is a delight and is wonderful to work with. She arranged for a private chef to make dinner one evening and we returned from a day of sightseeing to a gorgeous table and incredible food that lasted a few days!

Home Sweet Home in Vienna!
We have rented apartments for travel in other places and this condo exceeded our expectations! On our first night we came home to the smells of a delicious home-cooked meal, thanks to Mila and Maria. The condo itself is spacious and seems to be located the very heart of the city center. There are so many things to love about this place!
Kern family from Australia
Prepare to be amazed!
If you are wishing to experience true grand Viennese lifestyle, you cannot miss out on this stunning apartment. Its location is not only central to the heart of Vienna but it is also historical with Mozart's house and Stephansdom virtually on its doorstep.
We all loved this 'wunderbar' apartment with all its cathedral ceilings, artwork, art deco furniture and modern amenities. It was warm throughout and the hot water never ran out which was a welcome feature in winter. Access to the mobile phones and computer with internet proved very useful.
We will certainly come back again and cannot recommend it highly enough to any prospective visitor to Vienna.
Superb apartment for a couple, in a fabulous central location
A very spacious (but see comments below), comfortable, very well equipped and decorated apartment in a central location. In easy walking distance of all the main sites and lots of good restaurants and bars. Miro was very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and little things like the mobile phones were very good touches.
The apartment is an impressive series of linked rooms. We found the layout of the accomodation to be inconvenient for more than one couple. There is one shower room (called a bathroom on the web site but it is too small to fit a bath) and it is only accessible through the main bedroom. The ~half bathroom~ (American for toilet) has cold water basin only. The second bedroom, with a sofa bed only as described on the website, doubles as the central TV room and has to be walked though to get to any other room. The couple who slept on the sofabed found it uncomfortable. We could not imagine how the apartment could accomodate 7 as advertised - with the single shower off the main bedroom we had real trouble accomodating 4!
Opera /weekend adventure in Vienna
This is a fabulous place to stay. So much art in this grand apartment and very stylish.
We were also amazed how central this place is. Lots of space and very warm.
We will be back.
Es un piso muy grande y comodo.
Esta muy bien situado justo detrás de la catedral y con todo lo necesario para estar unos días allí
Lo de tener internet y los moviles nos ayudaron mucho.
El unico pero, aunque hay dos baños, uno de ellos es un aseo, con lo cual solo hay una ducha y para 7 era un poco locura, pero aún así volveriamos allí sin ninguna duda
Gracias a los dos
Funky Town in Vienna
A great place to stay. It's a huge apartment close to everything. Really cool furnishings too. The only tiny issue for couples traveling together is that there's only one shower in the whole apartment, and it's in the ensuite off the main bedroom... So you do need to plan ahead! If you want somewhere different to stay, try here. So much better than a hotel!
Michael J. Solender
Ideal location and ammenities
When the owner's confirmation email said that we had "rented the best apartment in Vienna" I though this might be a stretch but in fact she was correct. A perfect location and the apartment delivered on all counts as promised. Ditto every positive comment and a few more: great pre and during communication made us confident that we were dealing with people who cared. The biggest asset of course is the key central location but know that the apartment offers many comforts not common with many European rentals, ample hot water, comfy and spacious rooms and a well equipped kitchen were welcomed daily after touring. the laptop with fast internet access was a real bonus. Just first class all the way.
Little Rock, Arkansas
Great apartment - Perfect Location!
Two friends and I stayed here for two nights. I wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment is huge and had everything we needed. We cooked breakfast both mornings and the kitchen was more than adequate. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance of many sights and conveniently located near an U-bahn stop. I would definitely recommend this apartment!

You can't go past this apartment
My family and I did not stay here long enough! The apartment is fantastic, huge and has everything that you could ever need. It's clean, has plenty of space to chillax and is only a short walk Stephansplatz where it all happens. Miroslav the manager is a gentleman and very obliging. If you are going to Vienna then don't look anywhere else. You will not be disappointed with this apartment.
Palm City, Florida
We could not believe our luck when we entered the apartment in Vienna! Sure, we had seen the pictures on Flip Key but pictures can be deceptive. Not so in this case. This is a stunning property! The apartment itself has everything and more. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bedding is top notch (high quality sheets, comforters with duvets and great pillows(very rare in vacation rentals) ). Very spacious with great living, dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is well equipped for light cooking. The apartment and the building are architecturally beautiful and authentic. The location is perfect! We were able to walk to all of the main attractions easily. There are shops and restaurants very close and the grocery store is three short blocks away. Even though you are close to everything it is quiet at night time.The subway is close by ( maybe 4 blocks ) if you want to visit outlying areas. I would not recommend a car because there is absolutely no need. We felt extremely lucky to happen upon this property. Staying here was one of the highlights of our European adventure. It gave us a true feeling of living in the center of Vienna in the best possible location. Liska and her property mangers are professional and reliable. Miraslov was waiting in the courtyard upon our arrival. Every detail to make your vacation experience comfortable has been carefully considered. There is a laptop computer in the apartment and two cell phones are provided for your use in Vienna. These can be used to keep in touch with one another or to reach the property manager with questions.If we ever return to Vienna we would only want to stay in this beautiful apartment. I would recommend this apartment to anyone ( and everyone). I would be fine with someone contacting me personally if they need any further information or recommendation on this property. If you stay here you will not be disappointed!

Great location with tons of room!
We very muh enjoyed our stay at this exceptionally large apartment. Everything we needed was supplied and dealing with Liska and Miroslave was easy and professional. The apartment is in an unbeatable location and is extremely comfortable, with all amenities one would ever require. It was a lucky find for sure, one we'll definitely recommend. Thanks Liska and Miroslav for a wonderful experience in Vienna.
los angeles, ca
Huge apartment in the center of town in historical building
Location, location, location! This large apartment is smack in the middle of everything in the center of Vienna. You are a stones throw from Stephansplatz and main walking streets with shops/restaurants. Just look out the window and you have a view up the street to Mozart haus. Many of the best restaurants are within a few blocks (try out Figlmueller for classic Viennese fare and Da Capo rated one of best in Vienna). Also, don't miss Demel's and Hotel Sacher for coffee and pastries (both claim to have originated the famous Sachertorte) ~ 10 min walk to either from the apartment.
The apartment is enfilade ~ very dramatic with herringbone wood floors, double doors, windows with interior shutter and high ceilings. Rooms are huge (except for bathroom with is small by comparison but it is an old building after all and their is also a 1/2 bath by the entry).
Decor is mid-century modern with some very cool art on the walls. There is even a baby grand piano in the living room! King bed in master...beds in secondary rooms are of sofabed variety.
Owner provides every imaginable travel guide to Vienna, maps, brochures, ect to help planning for your visit as well as 2 local cell phones for use while in town (a lovely touch), a computer for use and excellent wifi.
Owner and owner's rep Miro very pleasant to deal with and responsive to email and telephone requests.

Convenient, Peaceful, and Historic!
We stayed for 4 nights in early July and found this apartment to be the perfect location! We were just steps from the Mozarthaus and then a few more steps to Stephensplatz and the famous cathedral. Grocery stores (note that they close at 6 pm on Saturday and don't reopen until Monday) and restaurants around the corner. Figlmuller is a must (we went twice, but note that you need a reservation which can be made online 4 days in advance) - an order of schnitzel is enough for 2 but everyone should order there own potato salad - our favorite! Very quiet and restful. Beautiful old historic building. Very clean with everything we needed - hairdryer, washing machine, a lift which came in handy for my 77 year old father-in-law, laptop with skype, 2 local cell phones which was a pleasant addition. Liska and Miroslav were extremely helpful and responsive. We really enjoy first class hotels; however, especially when traveling abroad, we always try to find a place to stay to enjoy the locale and in Vienna, this is it!!
Perfect Vienna location -- very large apartment
My family and I (4 people total) stayed at this apartment for 17 days in June 2011. The location is perfect -- walking distance from all the must see places in Vienna. The apartment itself is quite large -- it consists of 4 large rooms, and each room has a bed or large couch to sleep on. My experience working with the management team was very positive. Liska (owner) was extremely responsive to emails and questions both before and during our stay, and Miro (who works with Liska) was really helpful as well. Just one note: the grand piano in the apartment has several keys that are out of tune/broken, so if you are a serious classical music player, you will not be very happy playing it... But otherwise everything was perfect for our stay and I highly recommend the apartment.
No need to take the Metro or buses ever
My husband and I rented the apartment for a week. We walked everywhere and were delighted with the extraordinary number of restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the apartment.
There were two supermarkets just around the corner, and the owner provided a shopping cart on wheels for us to use.
It was lovely having the space to spread out. The apartment was well appointed and light-filled.
The owners were very helpful in providing details before we arrived, and we had a hassle-free time getting into the apartment on the first day.
My only regret was no bath, but only a shower. Otherwise, the apartment was a large part of my enjoyment of Vienna.
A truly authentic "Vienna" experience
This beautiful, spacious, historic apartment was everything that was advertised and more. We were a family of five:three generations including two toddlers. Our "home" for ten days in May was absolutely perfect. The location could not be beat... minutes from anywhere you want to be in this grand imperial city and close to the U-Bahn for a day at Schönbrunn.
The wonderful old parquet floors, the high ceilings, and the grand enfilade of rooms made for a truly authentic experience. The building itself is a treasure. You are living in history. What a privilege! If only the walls could talk...
The owner was more than accommodating and aimed to please. Providing two cell phones is just one example of the thought that has gone into making one's stay comfortable. The concierge, Maria, always had a pleasant smile and greeting for us. We really felt at home in the Grünangergasse.
An enchanting artist apartment with a rich history and central location. Roomy, well equipped and maintained. Helpful host. A great plus for our visit to Vienna. Have to organise someone to come back with us so that we could justify renting this unforgettable apartment. The only funny bit is that we could not use the lift to move our luggage. On getting up to the apartment, we found out that we need the house key to operate the lift. Maybe that should be included in the instruction.
I stayed here for 3 nights with my parents and 11-year-old daughter, and we were delighted with our stay. The apartment is enormous--5 big rooms--and could easily sleep many more than 4. It's very elegant as well, and yet comfortable. The location can't be beat. We walked everywhere we wanted to go, and there are restuarants, cafes, and grocery stores very close by. Liska was a wonderful hostess, providing us with all the information we needed and allowing us to stay late on the day we checked out. Really, we couldn't have had a more positive experience.
A really beautiful and convenient apartment
We stayed (3 persons) in this apartment in the month of May. The comfort and spaciousness beats any hotel room, anytime. We had everything we wanted, and the location is incomparable. We didn't have the chance to meet Liska, unfortunately, because she was away, but Miroslav and Maria were there for us.
The perfect location, the perfect apartment!
We travelled with our parents who are not very mobile and we found this apartment perfect for them since it´s just next to the cathedral and therefore to many other attractions in Vienna. The building has a lovely interior patio, which gives the apartment light from two different points, the street and the patio. This creates a lovely luminous space. The apartment itself is very outstanding, as the photos well show it on the web. You feel at home since the furniture and the deco is quite warm compare with other rental apartments. The paintings and photographs give it a nice feel to it, as well as the vintage furniture.
The owner of the house was very nice and helpful. She made sure we had everything we needed. Also she gave us excellent tips on restaurants, jazz clubs and things to visit in the city centre.
I just give it ten out of ten.
Out standing apartment
I stayed in this unique apartment with my family for four days and it was nearly better than being at home. It's right on the city centre, next to the cathedral. We could just walk anywhere from it. The apartment has two different living rooms, one of them with a piano that my mom played for us. The decoration and furniture of this apartment are very stylish and at the same time very comfy.
I would summer it as a very European stylish and unique apartment.

A fabulous apartment in the heart of Vienna!
My family and I recently stayed in this wonderful apartment, right in the center of Vienna. It offered everything we were looking for and then some! The location is truly within a few minutes' walk of many sights in the city. It is also within a 3 minute walk to the subway system (U-bahn) that gets you anywhere you wish to go. There are countless restaurants, from fancy to local eateries, very close by. Shopping is also in abundance, with more than one grocery nearby, and the many stores of Kartner Strasse a few steps away. The apartment is very, very large, and we had abundant space for the whole family. As we were there at Christmas time, we even had ample room for a Christmas tree! The owners are lovely people, and had everything ready for our arrival. We will definitely stay again!
We had a great time in Vienna thanks to the wonderful apartment we rented in the heart of the city. The location is centric and you can not get a more central place than this. It is just a minute walk to the St. Stephan's dome and all the main attractions are within an easy reach. The apartment itself is very stylish, comfortable and the people were very kind to us. All in all we had a great stay in Vienna! We can highly recommend this place!

Wonderful Vienna experience
As a single woman who most often travels alone, I prefer to avoid hotels and stay instead in comfortable, safe, homey environments with a personal touch and caretakers/owners that I can go to for whatever I need. Through a friend, that's exactly what I found in this charming Vienna gem - plus an incredible location close to everything from shopping to museums to the opera and theater. There was even a piano!
I felt very safe and at home here and the owners couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Highly recommended.
The Perfect apartment in Vienna
This place is one of a kind: central location, amazing view, huge area and very austrian (you got your piano inside to exercise!!). There are many good things that you wouldn't find else; e.g. the kitchen has its own door, store room and window, so you cannot feel that someone is quacking when you are watching TV or laying on the so many sofas in one of the living rooms or the dinning room.
Above all, you will meet the best landlords you could meet (Liska and David), who then became my best friends in Vienna and I hope to see them again.
Ps: What would you feel if Mozart's house was your neighbor? (I actually haven't heard about him until I have been his neighbor for over a month!!)

Acceptable, well-located, and suitably fine for a very shall group.
This was a fabulous apartment in the prime center of Vienna
I really had a wonderful time at this Vienna apartment. It was so relaxing. I felt so much at home that I never wanted to leave. Everything was all put in place and the coffee was just ready to push the on switch. The deco was very austrian and I felt like I was in the 70's made me feel a lot younger. Everyone in the neighborhood speaks English and the stores were great best shopping ever.
Great location short walk to the center of Vienna and nice landlords.
Highly recommend to stay in this aprtment at Grunangergasse. what a great location and beautifully decorated, spacious , great location, Nice people.
