Apartment in best city-centre location, 2 rooms, very bright and quiet

The location of this apartment is ideal - quiet but very close to the center! The apartment is within walking distance of the historic center of the university, the city and Burgtheater Hofburg and St. Stephen. But you can go to other attractions such as Prater / Giant Ferris Wheel and Schönbrunn Castle with direct metro lines (station is located about 150 meters from the house). Nearby, there is a popular market and many good restaurants with Viennese and international cuisine as well as excellent shopping infrastructure.

This beautiful house is typical for Vienna, with its high ceilings and generous bedrooms. Both the apartment and the house have been recently renovated, so you can always rely on a high level of comfort. Through two large windows in the corner room apartment is beautifully bright and airy. A continuous, traditional oak flooring makes it especially comfortable.

About the property

Big, quiet ap. in top-location

This apartment is wonderfully bright, quiet and has been renovated only a short while ago. It has 60 m² and two rooms and is extremely spacious and perfect for 2-4 people, because there are two sleeping rooms.

The apartment is located in a charming and also newly renovated Viennese fin-de-siecle house, with ist typical features, such as high ceilings and traditional wooden parquet floors. The apartment was fully renovated only a short while ago and has, besides the new wooden parquet floors, also new windows and new electrical and heating installations.


Apartment "Adam" is situated in a very pleasant and very centrally located living area nearby the socalled "Karmeliter" market. You can even walk to St. Stephen's cathedral by foot (20 minutes) and reach the first district, where all the major sights are located, in only five minutes. There are two metro lines U4 and U2 just around the corner (exit "Herminengasse" of station "Schottenring")

The metro lines U4 and U2 around the corner also brings you directly and without changing from the apartment to Prater, Big Wheel, Schönbrunn Castle, State Opera, Kärntner Street, Imperial Castle, and other major sights.

The apartment is located in a very quiet street, so it is very calm and quiet. It also features high ceilings (more than 3 meters) and big windows, so it's pleasantly bright in the apartment. But of course, you can darken the rooms at night with curtains.

The commercial and shopping infrastructure is very good, there are several supermarkets nearby, as well as nice restaurants and other shops. And the apartment is also in short walking distance to a nice peasant's markets for fresh fruits and other similar items.

If you like to go running or if you have kids, you will appreciate that the big and historic baroque park "Augarten" is nearby, which also offers three well-equipped playgrounds and a kids' swimming pool. There are also three very nice restaurants in this park, if you like to have lunch or dinner in those restaurants outside under the trees. However, the apartment is located very centrally, so you can enjoy nature and city-centre-sights, both in walking distance at the same time, and without the hustle and bustle you have in other regions in Vienna.

The Apartment "Adam" is perfect for up to 4 people, but it is also reserved a lot by couples spending a few days in Vienna or even by bigger families (because there is enough space for up to 6 people, however it is tight for so many people).

In the apartment, I can also add a baby bed, and there is WLAN and a washing machine.

About Mrs. Mayr

I love to travel, so I also love to welcome guests in my apartments.

Although travelling a lot, Vienna is my favourite city - if you like, I can provide some tips on where to go and what to visit here.

Mrs. Mayr purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mrs. Mayr chose Leopoldstadt

This flat is a heart project of me. I have searched a smaller apartment, which would have been cheaper. But when I saw this flat with the beautiful and bright rooms and the big windows, and the sunlight filled the big corner room, I could not resist but to buy this apartment. This dream came true some years ago and I am glad that the guests appreciate the flat so much as I do. The apartments have such a friendly atmosphere!

In addition to that, the location is very good, as all major sights can be either visited by walking or by taking a convenient and direct connection with metro, directly from the station near the apartments to the sights.

What makes this apartment unique

The spacious, bright and quiet rooms and the very attractive location make this flat so special: It is very close to downtown and therefore within walking distance of many major tourist attractions. Nevertheless, one does not live here right in the 'tourist-bustle', but in 'authentic' and very pleasant Viennese neighborhoods. The apartment is located a few minutes of a very popular local food market and also perfectly connected to public transport: Two major subway stations and other tram and bus stations are located in the immediate vicinity. Moreover, it is those metro lines (U4 and U2) that will take you directly and without change to the main attractions (unless you already reach these on foot, which is possible in some cases from this apartment).

Great location. Great for the price.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, it was great for the price. Very easy to work with the owner. Thanks Mrs Mayr. A few suggestions: it needs extra towels, toilet papers and big mirrors.

Great apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

I don't think you could get a better location than this in Vienna. Very close to the Danube canal (which is a river itself) which is very pretty with a walkway beside the water.its really convenient for the city centre as well. The metro stop is very close but we didn't use it.There is a Citybike stand beside the metro stop, very close to the apartment,and we went everywhere on the city bikes on the best network of cycle paths I have ever seen in a European city. (Make sure you get the app which tells you where there are free bikes and also slots to leave them back). It's a wonderful way to see all the lovely buildings.There are good restaurants nearby. We liked the Schone Perl so much we went twice. The supermarket is literally around the corner. Apartment is bright, spacious and clean. We were only 2 but it would easily take 6. Very well equipped and no street noise at all. Arrangements were very painless. This is a great value apartment and highly recommended.

Great location and comfortable living

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this flat. The main room has high ceilings and has a double aspect so felt light and airy. We very much enjoyed watching the street scene below. The location is perfect for getting around Vienna being very close to the underground and tram stops. The decor is modern and attractive and contrasts nicely with the historical building. The kitchen area is small but practical enough for food preparation and is well equipped.

Excellent value

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was exactly as promoted, and Mrs Mayr was responsive during negotiation and welcoming upon our arrival. We stayed six nights in comfort. The location was well-situated close to the U-Bahn, the canal (which is a delightful attraction), the inner city and the Prater. A CityBike station was close by and we were able to cover much of the city by bicycle. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Great choice

  • 5 of 5

A very good property in general with really nice atmosphere. Conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood, easily accesible. 5 minutes walk from the metro, 15 minutes walk from the city center along or across the Danube canal. The apartment itself is pretty spacious, in particular the bedroom. It is well equipped, we found there everything we needed. On the top, Beate is a very helpful and professional host. It was a pleasure to meet her. When we come back to Vienna, we will be inquiring about the availability of this apartment indeed.

The flat is connected perfectly to public means of transportation: On account of the location in the 2nd district directly at the border to the 1st district, you go only few minutes to the historical city centre where all important places of interest are (Hofburg, Stephansdom, state opera, Burgtheater, Kunsthistorisches Museum, MuseumsQuartier, Kärntner Straße, Graben etc.). Moreover, the underground line U4 connects the apartment directly to the castle Schönbrunn. And the underground line U2 brings you directly to the Prater, in only 2 stations. Both underground lines (U2 and U4) and its station 'Schottenring' (exit 'Herminengasse') are directly around the corner from the flat.

The house, in which the flat is located on the 2nd floor, lies in a very quiet and nice residential area in the 2nd district, near the artist's quarter around the 'Karmeliter' market, where also many nice and good bars are. There is perfect shopping infrastructure immediately around the corner of the flat.

And for everybody who wants to do sports or go with the children once on the playground or in the swimming-pool: The nearby Augarten, the nice and biggest historical baroque park in Vienna, is only five minutes walking distance away. It is also home of the School and concert hall of the well-known Vienna Boys' Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben).
