We have stayed in many apartments in many cities around the world, but Apartments Lewar would have to be about the best. Its location is excellent - only a short walk to the Cathedral square and thus to many of Vienna's best attractions. It is only a short walk, too, to two Metro stations (different lines) and to tram lines. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Lev, the owner, on arrival with a comprehensive introduction to the apartment. The kitchen was very well appointed - but the real feature is the quality of the fittings throughout. These were special and led to the feeling that you were being treated as royalty - space, luxury furnishings, gold trim. It sounded a bit over-the-top (which it was), but it provided us with a very special experience. With huge paintings of Sisi and Franz Joseph looking at us the whole time, we could not help but love it!
We rented the Sisi apartment for our visiting family friends and it was excellent. The apartment is bright, clean and elegant. It is right by the heart of Vienna, very close to Stephansdom, Judenplatz, etc. but also is on a quiet, quaint street, with nearby grocery stores and bus stops. Lev and Mrs Dolores were both very nice and responsive. It is well worth the rate, as you could not find anything as large or as nice for that rate in a hotel. I highly recommend!!
From the initial booking request to the final check-out correspondence, our contact with Lev was nothing short of professional and attentive. And the apartment ~ absolutely amazing!
We love renting when we travel so as to feel a part of the city and enjoy the comforts of home while away. Sisi was more than we expected ~ spacious, immaculate, elegant, well-stocked with the usual amenities and those more thoughtful like hampers, a drying rack, extra electrical converters, a bottle of water in the frig, small soaps and shampoos, and plenty of towels, etc. The kitchen is stocked quite well making meals in convenient.
We were there during a very warm stretch and while not air conditioned, we were very comfortable in the apartment with windows and fans, The master bedroom and huge living room stayed the coolest.
This apartment is very centrally located and close enough to the underground to make travel out of the 1st District very easy. Lev also provided a wonderful list of restaurants and suggested thngs to do. Grocery stores are within a block and all major sites are no further than 10-20 minutes walking.
It is a very quiet neighborhood with mnimal late night noise. There are a few local bars but only a handful of shouts were heard as the night settled. You are situated next to a church but the bells are rung only during the day.
Again, thank you Lev for creating a memorable stay!
