Wonderful apartment, perfect location

Four of us (2 adult couples) stayed in this apartment for four nights in May, and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. To begin with, the apartment is huge- bigger than it appears in the pictures. There are two separate bedrooms, one very large, the other on the small side, both with full beds. The living/dining room is big and comfortable, with plenty of seating. There is an internet plug-in (including cable), and a small desk. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a large fridge with freezer. There's a washer, but no dryer, although there is a drying rack, and lots of space to hang stuff up. The apartment is on the 5th floor, and the elevator is small and busy, so we always walked down, and often up. The owner's mother lives in the same building, and she was absolutely wonderful- she showed us the apartment, then took us to the nearby grocery store to stock up, including pointing out the best deals. The location is perfect- right at the top of Kartnerstrasse, next door to the opera and close to nearly everything you'd want to see in Vienna. And there's a metro station within 50 metres for anything else. We parked the rental car in a garage next door for the whole time we were there (16 euro/day; NOT at the Opera though- that's 40 euro/day!). The only potential negative is that the apartment faces a busy street, and there is no air conditioning. We heard some traffic noise, but it was not enough to be a bother. A family of 4 could easily settle in here as a base from which to explore the beautiful city of Vienna. Highly recommended!
