We booked Johann's beautiful apartment after reading the reviews all the positive comments previous guests had left. Having two teenage boys, I was concerned that the 'study' would be big enough to act as a bedroom for them but a quick email to Johann and a very prompt reply back reassured me that it would be, and it was. They had plenty of room.
The apartment is fabulous. Spacious and beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need. The air conditioning was a life saver as the few days we were here were all above 30 degrees! The coolness of the apartment was such a welcome after sightseeing around the amazing city. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and the living area, bedroom and bathroom are all beautifully furnished and luxurious.
On Johanns recommendation we purchased passes for the trams, underground and hop on/off sightseeing buses and this certainly seems to be the best way of getting around. The apartment is out of the main city but only a very short tram or underground ride back in. It's location is ideal as it is quiet but with local shops and amenities. To Schoenbrunn Palace is 5-10 minutes tram ride one way and St Stephens Cathedral is 10-15 minutes tram and underground the other way. The transport system here is very impressive and you hardly spend anytime waiting. We also purchased Vienna Passes which again we would recommend as they allow you free entry into almost all the main attractions or at a reduced rate as well as free rides on the sightseeing buses.
Johann kept in touch throughout our stay to check if there was anything we needed and that everything was ok and his recommendations and hints and tips have been invaluable. We have stayed in many places but the attention to detail Johann has gone to is above what we have experienced before.
If Vienna is your city of choice then this wonderful apartment is a must.
We stayed in this 2 bedroom apartment which was close to westbahnhof and shonbrunn. The apartment is within walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets. It is clean, very spacious and located in a quiet neighborhood.The apartment has everything we need like washer, ac, wifi etc...it also has a terrace with great views. Johann was great, even though we arrived late at night, he arranged someone to explain everything in the apartment for us in addition to the document of instructions available just in case. Overall it was great.
Amazing place.....and even more amazing host. All our requirements were looked after. Communication was smooth and hassle free. My kids also loved Johann's home and it was very comfortable to move around Vienna with the three of them from there.
Wishing Johann all the best and thank you again for giving us a wonderful time.
Apartment in quiet location just off the Mariahilferstrasse with easy access to central Vienna via the regular tram/underground system (we bought a 48 hour ticket for €13.90 which gives you the run of the city). Supermarket nearby. The inside is spacious, modern, clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The owner, Johann, was very supportive. We most enjoyed relaxing outside on the balcony for breakfast/evening meal looking out across the city. There are also views of the Schonbrunn Palace which is within walking distance. A great base for exploring Vienna!
This is a fantastic apartment! Bright and spacious, yet also warm and cosy (we were there Feb/Mar). It was lovely to use the fire after a day out sightseeing in the cold, although there is also aircon for hotter days. Great location - there is a supermarket and tram stop just around the corner. Trams are very frequent and only 3 stops to Westbahnhof, from which the U-Bahn, trams and trains can take you all over the city. The apartment was spotlessly clean with very good facilities, plenty of towels, bedding etc. The view from the upstairs balcony is amazing - we can't wait to come back in warmer weather to enjoy it properly! Johann was extremely helpful, provided lots of useful information and kept in touch with us throughout. We did not have any problems while we were there but, if we had, I am confident that Johann would have been able to resolve these for us quickly and easily.
Lovely penthouse situated close to u bahn and even closer to trams. Supermarkets very close nearby to get all you need and city centre only 20 mins by train or an hour by walking. The apartment was very luxurious and excellent to come back to after sightseeing all day. Well worth the stay
Johann luxury penthouse is not like any other vacation rental you would take. It comes with each and every amenity you can think of. Johann has really put in a lot of effort in making you feel at home. The best part about the property is the fully equipped kitchen, the views from the apartment (Reach Schönbrunn Palace).
Thank you Johann for having me as your guest! Highly Recommended!
