The location could not be better, right off of Vienna`s main shopping street, Mariahilfer Strasse is one of Viennaï¿½s liveliest areas. The intersection directly in front of our windows is one of the busiest in the area. Important public transportation connections such as the U3 underground line (Neubaugasse Station); Bus 13A to/from the Sudbahnhof (Southern Railway Station); 10min. walk to the Westbahnhof (Western Railway Station) and approximately the same time to walk to the Cityï¿½s Center.
There are many places to eat, including coffee houses (traditional Viennese to Starbucks), bars, bakeries, restaurants, deliï¿½s and family style establishments in the area. Therefore, breakfast is not offered as everyone prefers to sample from the multitude of choices in the area. In each room we provide a kettle for hot water with mugs, plus coffee and teabags just for the first morning.
There is a common fridge along the hall to store your food&beverage in case of need.
The Naschmarket is also a 10 min. walk away and is open 6 days a week. You will find fresh fruits/vegetable stands, international deliï¿½s and food stalls offering inexpensive meals. In addition, each Saturday there is also a popular ï¿½Flee marketï¿½.
The Spittelberg area, noted for its student bars and artistic shops, is also about a 5 min walk away, with twisted, curving cobblestone streets leading you around more, beautiful Viennese architecture.
Our next door neighbour is the traditional, well known, Old Viennese Coffee house called ï¿½Cafe Ritterï¿½ directly on the corner.
Upon your check-in, we offer a detailed outline of attractions and things to do in Vienna with a city map to help make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We are also happy to suggest restaurants; museums; using the public transportation; events.....etc. (www.vienna.at)
Please note: The guests house itself is located on the ground floor with just a few steps up to the apartment door. The lobby is very impressive, old styled and quiet. Several historical books of the district list the house as ï¿½the most beautifulï¿½ house of the 6th District.
Free Internet access is available 24 hours/7days at the reception area.
There are many excellent coffee houses, bakeries and deliï¿½s around the area, and we have found for this reason that our guests prefer to go out for breakfast. Therefore we do not serve breakfast.

Air condition is available in each room for 10ï¿½ extra on require.
Reservations should be secured by Visa or Master card, but we will ask you to pay us here in cash.
