“Good Price Value, Centrally located, Hotel alternative”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Apartment located in residential neighborhood (apartment building) within
walking distance to the "Westbahnhof"; public transport nearby to all areas of Vienna.
Good alternative to a hotel with kitchen, separate toilet, bathroom and large room with balcony. Street noise not too bothersome with windows closed. It is on a major road.
There are 3 other apts. available on same floor with 2 BR instead of one. Host Arabella is very accomodating and contact person lives next door for anything you might need including info about Vienna. Pleasant stay. Thank you.

Very nice guesthouse located in the very centre of Vienna, held by a generous and welcoming host: Arabella! She owns several appartments divided in several floors (but all in the same flat), with shared bathrooms. A kitchen is available if you want to cook but you can also have a hearty breakfast made by Arabella's employee for only 4euros (and it is worth!).

Arabella will give you many advice to visit the city, but also to park the car in a very cheap parking because there is none in front of the appartments.
The bedrooms are comfortable, well equipped, clean and not noisy, although the appartments are just on a main road.

Arabella and her husband were the most welcoming people my friend and I met on our trip. The guest house was exactly the type of place we wanted: spacious, clean, very private (so refreshing compared to our hostel nightmares), and conviently located. We used the nearby public transportation to go everywhere, and Arabella was so helpful every time we needed directions or recommendations.
We most enjoyed the balcony with its nice view as a good place to relax after being out in the city all day. Grocery store nearby and it was nice to have our own little apartment to cook in and basically make our home for a few days in Vienna. I wish we could have stayed longer.

We thought this place was very strange, but not bad. The owners are nice, but when we first checked in there was this very grungy odd couple trying to check us in, and they could not speak English or even much German, and it was a very off-putting experience. The owners themselves were nicer but a bit overbearing. The room was very 70s and had no WiFi even though it was advertised as such. The people are nice, so I don't want to give a bad review, but we didn't love it here. The location is fine.

We stayed at Arabella guesthouse for one night. Room was very big and clean, bathroom also. Car parking is free in front of the guesthouse.The owners are verry lovely lady and her husband. They show us everything we wanted to know, give us map and directions about the city, where to go, what to avoid etc. Guesthouse is almost in the centre of Vienna, only 20 minutes by foot (by the main shopping street :) ) to the Stephansdom. :) All in one, we give them excellent grade. :)

Arabella was one of the most memorable person we met on our whole trip! She made a huge effort to give us information, talk to us, and make us feel comfortable. The place was clean and price was fair.

The private was Bit outdated but great place to stay in Vienna, very clean and affordable and the attention was fabulous I will recommended to anybody passing by Vienna
10 min easy walk to the old town many things to do in the surrounding area and for some classic Viennese cuisine you must vista Inge and Gary restaurant just 2 blocks away!

Room Tip: They have a private apartment in the 9th floor that is excellent
