Wonderful, spacious apartment close to the Inner Stadt.

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I visited Vienna with our adult daughter, who was planning to spend some time doing her work as a translator from German.

The apartment was excellent. Plenty of room for us all and Kerry found the balcony an excellent place to work. We have never lived in an apartment & expected some noise from neighbours but this was much less than we had expected and was never intrusive.

It was generally very well equipped. Our only criticism was the lack of good reading lights for the very comfortable sitting room and in the main bedroom, but I have found that in many hotels as well; perhaps we spend more time reading than most guests do.

The area was excellent, with a very good tram service only a couple of minutes from the apartment door. I thoroughly recommend the 3-day ticket (about15 Euro) that covers the whole public transport system.

Josephstadt is a very good location and felt really safe day & night. I tried all 3 of the nearby supermarkets and thought all very good. Our only problem was not knowing that our first full day was a Bank Holiday with only the bakers open. Fortunately I was made aware of the small supermarket at the Westbaanhof & we got essentials.

We found & recommend the Rosnovsky Restaurant in Ludwig Sackmauer Platz (behind the Josephstadt Theatre).

This apartment was very clean (my wife failed to find any fault!) and was just as described.

We are hoping to return to this apartment & thank Marian for facilitating our stay.

A spacious and well located apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this apartment. It was spacious and easily managed to accommodate our taller than average family. Two huge sofas in the sitting area meant we were all able to relax in comfort in the evening. The apartment was well represented by the photographs on the Owners Direct website and the description was accurate, detailing the apartment well. It was immaculately clean and well stocked with towels, extra pillows etc. There was lots of hanging space for clothes and plenty of coat hangers. Whilst the bathroom was dated it was extremely functional and with the extra toilet meant we were able to manage well with 6 of us in the apartment. The small balcony with its table and seating is a pleasant place to sit when the weather is warm.

We loved the apartment's central location, it was approximately 10 minutes walk to the edge of the tourist area of Vienna and really well connected by tram no 2 into the city, or tram no 5 if you want to get across the city from west to east (or to connect out to the zoo which we would highly recommend as a day trip - the pandas and polar bears are delightful). It is well served by a well stocked Spa supermarket in the same block, and bakeries that are open early in the morning, even on Sunday, for fresh bread etc.

The only downside we experienced was from noise from some other residents in the courtyard that the apartment faces. This was partly exacerbated by the weather being warm whilst we were there (a lovely bonus in early April) which meant we had all the windows open. There was a party on the Saturday night when we arrived, which, whilst it finished at midnight, meant we had a disturbed first evening. Other noise was of people coming and going, babies crying etc and is to be expected in an apartment situated where it is. It would not stop us returning. Occasionally we were able to smell cigarette smoke from other apartments too.

As mentioned by other reviewers we visited the restaurant Ruffinos across the road. Great food, but beware that there is a smoking room within the restaurant and the smoke pervades the non-smoking area. Not great for those of us used to a country with non-smoking restaurants and meant we didn't return.

All our emails to the owner were answered promptly and we were met at the apartment for an easy hand over of the keys.

Séjour à Vienne en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à Vienne avec notre fille , son mari et leurs deux enfants de 10 et 8 ans , 5 jours, du 14 au 18 février 2016.

Nous avons tous beaucoup apprécié l'appartement. Il a du charme, il est très calme, spacieux, confortable, bien équipé.

Il est aussi très bien situé: supermarché et boulangerie à " 2 pas ", le tram tout proche et fréquent permet d'aller partout dans la ville.

The perfect place to stay in Vienna!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (me, my husband, 2 daughters and my parents) stayed in this apartment for 8 days. It was absolutely perfect for us and I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with it. It is roomy and spacious and feels like a well-cared for home. The kitchen is great for cooking and the bedrooms are a decent size with comfortable beds and fresh linens. The apartment is in a quiet building and across the street from a GREAT Italian place - Ruffino's - we went 3 times!! The location of this apartment simply cannot be beat. It's in the middle of Josefstadt, very easy walking to the inner ring - or take the number 2 tram as it stops several places on the Ringstrasse. (The metro should be used for outings further out of the city.) What I liked best about this apartment was the owner - she's very helpful, responds promptly and even though we did not meet in person, I met 2 of her children and they are lovely people. You will not regret booking this apartment! If we have the opportunity to travel to Vienna again, I would not book any where else.

Lovely, spacious, well-located

  • 4 of 5

My family had a lovely stay and found the flat to be very comfortable, well-equipped, and well-located. Communication with the property owners was efficient and friendly. The flat not only accommodated our family of five adults and two children easily, but was also furnished to be functional for families, with toys, a high chair, plenty of linen, a washing machine, a good stove and dishwasher, and two toilets.

There are many supermarkets nearby, though be warned that there is hardly anything open on a Sunday. If coming to Vienna with small children, be sure to locate the many parks in between sight-seeing visits. The playing grounds are innovative and well laid out, and keep the kids happy between visits to galleries and architectural sights. There is a nice park just around the corner from the apartment - we spent the late afternoons there, winding down from our days.

If any suggestion could be made to improve the experience of staying at the apartment, it would be to provide more fans for the warmer weather (and perhaps to provide a couple of table tennis bats and some balls, as many of the parks have free table tennis tables!).

Car: not necessary

The cosmopolitan city that combines beauty and charm with culture, style and sophistication. Spend your vacation in a small and charming district with a large number of patrician houses built before 1919, some of them from the Biedermeier and historic periods, next to the famous Josefstadt theatre and within walking distance to the very centre of Vienna as well as the famous shopping mile Mariahilferstrasse. The true Vienna experience!

Josefstaedterstrasse and the 8th district is one of the few that has retained the original Viennese flair. Beautifully located between major historic sights and within walking distance from the city, it offers very good public transport connection, parks, many truly Viennese cafes and famous restaurants. There are supermarkets, mini markets, organic and fresh markets as well as all kinds of sweet little stores on the street.

After a beautiful day of sightseeing and shopping, relax on our cosy balcony and study our guides to plan the day ahead.
