I was able to stay for five nights at Edith's B&B in Vienna in the baroque suite which was large and nearly 15 foot ceiling made it seem huge. There was a loft for sleeping which is part of the room, so no additional privacy as it in a open space. Decoration was period like and those who know about antiques and furtinute styles would really appreciate it. I enjoyed the cable TV and region free DVD player availability along with the WiFi Internet. Bathroom and toilet was separate which was great and having the airconditioner in the middle of August made the place seem like heaven! I'm sure many of you know the European tradition of avoiding aircondition if possible.
Edith's breakfast was luxurious and not just because the hot kaiser rolls, real butter and Viennese coffee, but the company was great from France and Italy. History, culture, politics and other subjects were on the table as well... felt like my college days. Edith's knowledge of the cultural life of Vienna and the ability to get tickets on a short notice to the Opera are unmatched. If you are looking for a home stay style with some European sophistication added in a great centarl location, then this is the B&B for you. I read some of the comments here, but I think people are mislead by the Internet listings providers. This is a family B&B as it should be, not vacation rentals, not apartment for rent and not a motel.
