The apartment reflects the beauty of the historical inner city. In the heart of Vienna you can find a home that is without equal. A tastefully furnished apartment with an open fireplace and 4.20 m high ceilings in an elegant Viennese house. Located in the noble embassy quarter with a view of the famous baroque Karlskirche and near Schwarzenbergplatz, Naschmarkt, and the high-culture-part of the city, and you are in the middle of it all. Imagine living in the city not as a tourist but as local- this apartment makes it possible.
A 5-minute walk passing by the Karlskirche and through the Resselpark and you're standing in front of the legendary Viennese Opera House. You can even reach the the Musikverein and Konzerthaus with just a 3-minute long stroll through the park. The apartment is surrounded by statues, restaurants, parks, operas, theatres, and is in walking distance of famous sightseeing attractions like the Stephansdom, the Albertina Museum, the Belvedere, and the popular shopping destinations Kärntnerstraße and Graben.
The apartment is elegantly furnished and has everything one could need. Because of the generous room division it is perfect for a single person, a couple, for two couples, and for a family with kids.

There is a number of ways to reach the apartment from the airport:

2. Take a train into the city, e.g. the CAT airport train and then take the metro to the Karlsplatz metro station. Look for the "Resselpark" exit, the apartment is located on a street behind the large Karlskirche (Karls Church). Recommended for groups of 1-2 people.
Don't hesitate to let me know if you need recommendations for restaurants, attractions, etc.!
I will be waiting in the apartment so as to give you the keys and give you a short tour of the place. I'm flexible when it comes to your arrival times, so it won't be a problem even if you arrive really early or late.
You will always be able to contact me per telephone or through airbnb- whether you want some recommendations for places to eat or want some tips as to what is worth seeing in Vienna.
On the day of departure I like to be there about 15 minutes before you plan to leave, to take the keys and wish you a good trip!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
Was für wunderschöne Tage in Wien! Oscar war ein sehr sympathischer, hilfsbereiter und toller Gastgeber. Die Wohnung ist ein Traum: großzügig, liebevoll und komplett ausgestattet und super zentral. 5 Sterne! Gerne wieder.
Es war wunderbar, Oscar ein toller Gastgeber, zuverlässig, unkompliziert, die Wohnung ein Traum, zentraler geht es kaum, wir hatten wunderbare Tage, vielen Dank dafür!!!
Lovely location! Beautiful apartment. Highly recommend. Stayed with two teenagers and all excellent!
Oscar's mother met us to show us around the apartment. She was very friendly and helpful. The flat is spacious and nicely decorated (exactly as the pictures). It is also very conveniently located - 5 mins walk to Karlsplatz U-bahn, and easy walking distance to many sights, including Stephansdom and Belvedere. The only downside was that the flat is very noisy with the windows open (it was hot during our visit, so we had to have the windows open at night, but all needed earplugs in order to be able to sleep). An extra set of keys would also have been helpful (we were 3 people with independent schedules but only 2 sets of keys so this required some logistics at times!).
Oscar's mother Bo made us feel very welcome especially as we arrived over 2 hours late due to a motorway closure. The apartment was very central...easy to walk to the main parts of Vienna and pop back for a rest. The apartment itself was stunning. The best we have ever stayed in with the most beautiful lightfittings and furnishings. A special place.
We were only disappointed that the piano was so out of tune although Oscar had warned us!
Oscars apartment was fantastic it was clean and well equipped. It was also in an excellent location which meant we could just walk every where. His mother showed us round the apartment and explained where everything was which was excellent. Would definitely stay again if I was in Vienna with friends.
Über den Gastgeber, Oscar
I'm a 27 year old business school graduate who loves to travel and is often away on business trips. Together with my mother we rent out our apartment in Vienna to families and groups of friends who are looking for an elegant and centrally located place to stay while they discover the city. The people I have met through airbnb so far have all been exceptionally friendly and interesting. I always try to help out with good restaurant, cafe, bar and museum recommendations for Vienna.
