“Don't stay anywhere else in Vienna.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

My family stayed in the apartment on Paniglasse. It was a great location, just a short walk to most of the main sites. The apartment is large, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need. Washing machine, drying rack, kitchen, etc.

Sophie was lovely and very easy to deal with. She provided us with maps, tips on where to go and directions for where we could park our car. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for two nights in the apartment on Karolinengasse. It had everything we needed and was nice to stay in a local area rather than in a faceless central city hotel. We walked to the Belvedere on our first day, and the continued walking into the centre (and then back again). Vienna is wonderful - something to see around every corner.

We went to the bar directly opposite the apartment one night. People were really friendly so we enjoyed a few beers and some food. We also visited the restaurant Sperl for lunch (on the way to Belvedere) which was also very nice. Oh and we also went to the cafe on the main road (on corner opposite Spar). We seem to have done a lot of eating and drinking.

Sofie was very helpful when we made our booking and pointed out many places for us to visit when we arrived. The apartment was spotless and spacious.

Definitely recommend

We have just returned from a trip overseas concluding with 2 weeks in Vienna at the Shermin Apartments on Karolinengasse. This is the third time in the last 5 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. Sofie and Ahmed always make us feel very welcome and they are very helpful.
Sofie arranged our transport from the airport and we settled in very quickly. As before the apartment was spotless and spacious with everything needed for a short or long stay.

The apartment is well situated, being 5 - 6 minutes walk to either the train or tram and a comfortable walk to the Karlplatz. A tram ride into the Opera is a little more than 5 minutes. The Belvedere Palace is also close by (opposite Karolinengasse) and within a block or two are many Gasthouses and restaurants, Spar, Hofer, bank & pharmacies.

Sophie Ahrari and her husband met us outside the apartment, made sure we were comfortable, knew where everything was, and oriented us to the services in the area. She also organized a cab for us at the end of our stay. Having been on the road for a while, we really appreciated the excellent washing machine and ironing board! When it became clear that the television was not working properly, Mr. Ahrari made two extra trips back to the apartment within a few hours to set it straight. The apartment on Muhlgasse was spacious and comfortable. We really felt very much at home and appreciated the excellent service provided by the owners.

There were 5 of us traveling together when we stayed in one of the Shermin Apartments, the suite we stayed in was very clean and spacious, even for all of us. The small building also has an elevator which a rare find in Europe, and it sure came in handy when traveling with large luggage. Sofie was very responsive while I was arranging the details of our stay, and she was very welcoming and helpful when we arrive on site.
I would definitely recommend Shermin Apartments to anyone staying in Vienna with a slightly larger group. It's a great alternative to staying in a hotel.

Excellent apartment, centrally located (we stayed at Paniglasse). Very warm welcome from Sofie Ahrari when we arrived. The apartment was very well equipped and very comfortable. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed 4 days in Shermin Apartment Argentinierstrasse in Wien. Sofie Ahrari, the owner who is very friendly and hospitable, managed us a studio in Karolingasse during the booking procedure. Before our arrival, she changed the studio to the one in Argentinierstrasse which is closer to the center. She welcomed us in front of the apartment and handed over the key. We visited Wien city center almost always by walking. It is 500 meter to Karlplatz (city center), just between 2 metro station. The apartment is about 50meter square on the base floor but quite useful. It has also a small garden shared with the neighbor but it is useless as one can hardly see the sky. We have never used it. The room includes one double bed and a sofabed. TV and satellite are of high quality including two Turkish channel. The comfort of the room is excellent; spacious, warm, quiet and clean. The owner Sofie Ahrari provided our requests such as additional bed sheet, quilt and cotton pillow before arrival. It is her gesture to bring toys to our little son. The kitchen is equipped with cooker, dish washer, microwave oven, no formal oven, no paddle box or aspirator. Simple requirement such as table napkin and salt are lacking in the kitchen. We could not find soap or shampoo in the studio apartment. But we could provide all the needs from the supermarket 30 meter away. Bathroom is small but sufficient including washing machine Interestingly, studio consists of a storeroom for vacuum cleaner, iron, ironing board, etc. We used it to keep our stroller. During our stay in Wien we really feel the comfort our own home. I recommend Shermin Apartments to all the families looking for home comfort. We will definitely stay again!
