Liked: Good location, easy to get to old city, U-bahn, and to places to buy your own food (Karmelitermarket and Taborstrasse). If visiting in winter the apartment is warm. It's an older apartment and is not fancy but quite adequate.

Disliked: A few dodgy things: the on-switch on the electric jug didn't work properly, and there was a loose electrical wall socket in the living room. TV didn't work either. Also a decent bread knife would be helpful; trying to cut a loaf with a table knife is frustrating.

Liked: Great location .... but staff does not speak English.

Disliked: The owner (?) of the apartments does not speak English at all. Consequently communicating about negotiating an extra night stay was frustrating and immensely difficult. It really is an APARTMENT type setting. So for privacy it is nice, but don't expect to meet any people or expect any assistance from the staff regarding local sights or travel tips. There is no front desk, for example.

Liked: All the flats are facing an inner garden. The surrounding is quiet and it has cultural diversity. Not far away from the city centre.

Disliked: The biggest problem is that you hardly ever get to see the manager or any staff! There was a problem with the Wi-Fi and we had to discuss the issue via speaker! She told us that she'd informed Telecom Austria et cetera, etc. But in the had to connect to the internet in the tiny wooden cottage in garden. It was cold and it was raining cats and dogs! Unfortunately, McDonald's became our savior...

Liked: This is a basic functional clean apartment, it was close to all the major attractions.

Disliked: The woman who met us, she seemed so stressed and like we were a bother to her. There was no computer available to make onward bookings and its very difficult to find an internet cafe in Vienna. She gave us directions but I still couldn't find it.

Liked: The apartment was just north of the centre and only took around 10 minutes to reach the main tourist attractions and shopping precincts. The apartment itself was nicely furnished and clean.

Disliked: There is no reception and you have to inform the owner of the exact time you arrive. Despite doing this, and texting the appropriate numbers when we arrived, we still had to wait outside (in the rain!) to be let in for an hour and a half before the owner showed up.
