The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with all facilities, W-lan ,television (a small one!) , a spacious livingroom with an additional comfortable bedsofa (often used by kids (140cm) ,
The sleeping room ( bed:160cm) is quiet and small .There is no separated bathroom,the shower is situated in the sleepingroom.The flat is very sunny and friendly and has a special old charm.
It is said that Vienna is the city with the higest live quality in the world!! You will fully agree with that statement.
