Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Nov-2016
Apartment near the Danube, Vienna - The apartment is in a quiet location with most activities within 15 mins by foot, train or bus

Our apartment offers comfort and convenience. From Kagran the underground route to the City centre is just 12 mins. Places of interest to most visitors include St.Stephen´s Cathedral with a horse drawn carriage trip around the inner City. The Rathaus (Town hall) where many interesting functions take place in its grounds throughout the year including the Christmas market and outdoor ice skating around the park pathways. Schönbrunn with its majestic palace and gardens and the oldest zoo in the world. The Hofburg for the Lippizaner horse shows, the Prater funfair for some of the dizziest rides in the world and the big wheel (Riesenrad) which featured in a Bond movie. Music and arts are to be found at the Opera, Stadthalle and the Museumquartier. There is no end of entertainment in this vibrant City, just Google it, talk to the information centre or to us. Local to Kagran we have the Danube Tower with its revolving restaurant and lovely ornamental gardens for pleasant walks.

Simply the best self-catering apartment.

  • 5 of 5

From the very warm welcome by Roger to his final friendly farewell, this comfortable and well appointed apartment was all a visitor could wish for... and more! My wife and I spent 7 nights here and it was a marvellous base to return to each evening, and so easy to access from the city centre and the local efficient transport system. Thank you 'owners direct' and Roger for making Vienna immeasurably more enjoyable.

Perfect Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We have given the apartment the full five stars as we have never stayed in an apartment before that had all of the small touches that make for a perfect place to stay. One of these were the lovely flowers. Others were having a C.D and D.V.D. player as it is nice to have your own music to listen to when you are having a leisurely breakfast before the busy day begins. The reason I say it was the perfect location was because you were near the buses and trains and trams. Roger had all of the information in a booklet that answered all your questions about tickets etc. Also it was close to the Danube and it was a lovely place to go down to in the evening for a walk. Very beautiful and peaceful. You also very close to the centre with all its beautiful tours and trips and I must point out excellent value in public transport and a very frequent service. All in all a delightful holiday and once not to be missed. Hopefully we will get back there in the near future.

A special place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything it claims... and much more. It is contemporary, tastefully furnished, spacious and everything you require is provided. Roger is very welcoming and helpful and the ambience of the apartment is first class. As other reviewers have noted acess to the centre of Vienna is best by the train station just five minutes walk, you never have to wait more than several minutes for a train to arrive and it is just a 15 minute train journey into the centre of Vienna. This is a city to walk around to appreciate all it has to offer and staying in such a top quality apartment is the icing on the cake. We would love to visit again and highly recommend the apartment as one that has no equal to begin the experience of Vienna.

Cool apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable apartment, well-located and ideal for visitors to Vienna who are travelling by car. And, despite a short heatwave during our stay, a cool and refreshing place to which we could return each day. We would not hesitate to return.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great stay in this apartment which is spacious and welcoming. The apartment is well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Ideal for us but this is not a central Vienna location if you are looking for that. Central Vienna is about 15 minutes by U-Bahn. The apartment is close to the Danube and Donauinsel and only a few minutes walk from the Donau-Zentrum shopping mall. Would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment as a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Tony is quite correct but, if like many of our Clients, you arrive in your own car then this location is very advantageous as we have our own integral garage where you can park safely for only €30 per week. Something you cannot do in the City centre.

Location

From the Owner

My name is Roger and I am responsible for the running and letting of this property. We acquired the apartment some years ago when people started moving out of the City centre to the other side of the Danube to experience more open space, clean air and less traffic. It was a good move as there are now many additional features available for the holiday maker which are very local.

Activity and Interests

Travel:

Fly to Vienna international airport (Schwechat).

Car hire available. Secure parking in our basement on request.

Taxi costs about 35 Euros.

Fast train (CAT) to Landstasse then underground U3 and U1 to Kagranerplatz.

Airport bus direct to Kagran then walk 5 mins. current cost about 7

Euros each way.

Airport bus to UNOcity the U1 to Kagranerplatz and 3 mins walk.

Distances:

We are situated midway between Kagran and Kagranerplatz underground stations.

3mins walk to Kagranerplatz underground.

12 mins from Kagranerplatz to Stephansplatz by underground.

2 mins walk to tram station

2 mins walk to taxi rank

5 mins walk to Donauzentrum shopping mall, indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink

2 mins walk to nearest supermarket

Further Details:

The City centre is very much a pedestrian precinct and is steeped in culture and history and is a MUST at Christmas with its Christkindl markets,roast chestnuts, punch and hot potato stalls with decorative street lighting that pales Oxford Street into insignificance.

Vienna is very compact and a drive into the country takes little time.

The area of Kagran also has much to offer.

A supermarket, bookshop, photographic, internet cafe, restaurants, and Heurige are closeby, within 200 metres.

Local buses, taxis and trams together with the underground are all very accessible and reasonably priced.

The large Donauzentrum (DZ) is a super air conditioned shopping mall with every type of shop you can imagine. It has many restaurants and theme bars with snooker, music and relaxing areas.

There is a newly refurbished indoor/outdoor swimming pool local and an ice skating rink next to Kagran station and one stop on the tube takes you to the Old Danube (Alte Donau) for grassy sun bathing, sailing, boating and water sports.

The main Danube river is close for your river trip to Melk or Durnstein or just for a view of the surroundings.

There is a fast hydrofoil to Bratislava to see the old city and maybe purchase some fine lead crystal (former Czechoslovakia, renowned for its glass)

And there is still so much more....
