Our Guest Reviews
I was In Vienna this summer with my two teenage children. We stayed at this lovely property for two nights and had a wonderful time. The owner was helpful and friendly, and the apartment was comfortable and filled with antiques. Ms Edith took us on a walk to some nearby atractions and eating establishments...she was a great hostess and she made the best breakfast we had in Europe!
Edith's property is absolutely wonderful. My wife and I stayed in one suite. My father and my son (age 21 - University California Los Angeles student)stayed in the adjoining suite. All agreed that this was the most enjoyable property we stayed in during our 20 days in Europe.
The location is perfect to walk anywhere of interest, the rooms are large with plenty of sitting area, the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked well when needed, the decorations could almost qualify as museum quality - very interesting!!
But, what really made the stay exceptional was Edith's true desire to help us maximise the enjoyment of our visit to Vienna. She gave great directions, hints about non-touristy events, and shared stories about the city that helped bring it to life in a very special way.
We will definitely stay here again, and also plan to explore Edith's other properties in Budapest and San Antonio.
This past June, my partner and I had the privilege of staying in this fabulous apartment, with the wonderful owner, Edith, who is a gracious, warm, and excellent host. We had the large suite, with antiques, separate sleeping area, and enjoyed every moment of being there. We'd come back and recommend it to our friends.
My wife and I stayed in the Buddha Suite in September of 2009. It was clean and spacious and wonderfully decorated. The breakfast served was terrific (fresh baked rolls!!) as was the breakfast conversations with Edith and the other guests. Very centrally located-- very close to the trams, buses and U-bahn-- so it was easy to see all the sights. Many cafes nearby as well. And Alex will pick you up or drop you off at the train station or airport at a very fair price! No worries about taxi drivers taking advantage of you. All in all a wonderful experience in a beautiful city!
Our family of seven had the most wonderful Christmas in Vienna and we have Edith's warm hospitality and unique apartments to thank. The position was very convenient and even when the city was blanketed in the snow we were able to find our way around easily on foot and by underground. Edith even provided us with extra clothing to cope with the cold of the first few days. Thank you, Edith! Your personality and superb hospitality made our Viennese Christmas so very special. I can only echo the comments of the other guests. Our time staying with you is one of our most treasured memories.

Was this ever the best place to stay! close to the finish line of the Vienna Marathon, clean, safe, public transport only minutes away. The Buddha apartment is clean, large and separate sleeping area available for our son as well. Ms Edith catered extremely well with any unusual breakfast requirements, as well as being extremely helpful with general tourist information, in fact, we will miss her. The apartment is situated in the 'old part' of beautiful Vienna, central, safe, quiet and just so interesting and lovely with antiques, original paintings and comfy beds. You can't go past this place if you are looking to stay in Vienna. The tariff is very reasonable. Highly recommended.
Edith was both knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were full of interesting family items. Breakfast was lovely and it was made better by the hostess joining us. The locaion was great, as we could walk to most places and take the convient public transport to the others.
This was a fun first stop on our trip.
My daughter and I stayed with Edith last May and she made our trip to Vienna more special. Location is terrific at the edge of city center. Very close to tram and within walking distance of so much. We felt like we were family friends. She and her son also have a B&B in Budapest, which we'll visit next time.
Barb & Family
My family (myself, husband and 2 teenage boys) stayed in the Baroque Suite. It was wonderfully comfy and plenty of space for the 4 of us to spread out. Edith is a wonderful hostess. Her English is excellent, her recommendations for site seeing were spot on and her delicious breakfast sent us on our way for the day feeling full and excited. Perfect location to walk to everything. My teenage boys even enjoyed the park across the street. After only 2 short nights with her, all I can say is we will miss her and definitely ---- until we meet again!!!
Thanks Edith for a lovely stay.
My husband and I stayed with Edith for 4 nights and enjoyed our accommodations very much. We loved the feeling of our suite and felt quite at home there. Edith was extremely helpful with suggestions about where what and how in Vienna and was a wonderful source of information as we processed the new rush of history our trip to Hungary and Austria had brought on. The location was extremely convenient to anything we wanted to do. It was very close to transportation though our feet could also get us most anyplace we needed to go. I can recommend Edith's place to anyone interested in a stay in Vienna. Thank you, Edith.
Family of 8 from the USA
Our group of 8 (ranging in age from 9 to 80+), converged in Vienna and had a wonderful 3 day stay in this eclectic apartment. Ms. Edith, a teacher, poet, world traveler and music lover, made this stay even more memorable. She truly worked to make our stay in Vienna wonderful and bring it to life in a special way,
We spent our first day taking a city tour lead by Ms. Edith. Her advice on places to eat and shop and her recommendations were spot on! The apartment’s central location and close proximity to transportation made exploring on our own a breeze! Our departure was made easier with the help of Alex, arrived on time and transported us to the Vienna airport at a reasonable price. We will return to this unique apartment and beautiful city again!
Brad & Kelly
We have stayed at Ms Ediths many times over the past few years. Her rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is excellent. We have stayed at a number of different vrbo.com and other properties throughout Europe and Ms Edith's is by far our favourite!
We stayed with Ms Edith in mid-March. We were travelling with children. The location is easy to find from both tram and metro. The touring sites were very accessible from the apartment. The best find was the playground directly across the street. The accommodations are clean and spacious. Ms Edith is very warm and accommodating. The location had many restaurants within two blocks both high-end and family friendly. Can't wait to return!
My family stayed with Ms. Edith during February 2011. We were thrilled with the location of the apartment and how much room we had. The location is central for finding whatever we wanted reasonabily easily. Our children, 9, 11 and 13, enjoyed the park across the street. A bonus is being able to view the park from the windows.
We appreciated Ms. Edith's suggestions on places to go and where to eat. She even outfitted the family for a trip into the "Little Alps" to play in the snow! I never thought I would wear real fur! It truly is warm! Her hot cereal, liverworst with toasted bread fueled us to find whatever adventure we could. We especially enjoyed the ice skating nearby.
We shared an interesting room with an upstairs loft and kitchenette. There were enough beds for all of us! If and when we return, I'll bring my own pillow for my cranky neck.
Ms. Edith is a dynamo that impressed each of us! It was almost as much fun to visit with her and stay in-doors than exploring Vienna. I was thrilled to be able to purchase her autobiographical book as a gift for my Hungarian uncle.
We will never forget our first trip to Vienna and will only wish to return until that day!
My husband and I stayed here in May, 2011 for 4 nights. Ms Edith was most helpful in suggesting places to visit and showed us how to get around. Not only did she meet us at the bus station, but returned to a different station with us upon our departure. We also enjoyed an orientation walk with her around Vienna. This is an excellent location from which to connect to tram, bus and metro, and there are places to eat nearby.
We stayed at Edith's apartment for two nights - 2 parents and 3 teenagers. We recommend the apartment very much. Ms. Edith is a wonderful, gracious host with infinite knowledge about Vienna, and we followed some of her recommendations. The apartment is beautifuly furnished and maintained, and the air-condition was a blessing (the temperatures exceeded 32 degrees).
The breakfast was generous.
I'd recommend this apartment highly, and would be glad to return on our next trip.
Thank you, Ms. Edith, for a wonderful stay.
My son and I stayed 2 weeks in the Buddha Suite at this charming B&B in the heart of Vienna. We highly recommend it. The rooms are huge by European standards yet quite comfy. Our host, Edith, is quite charming and takes good care of her guests. The home is truly a Bed & Breakfast where you feel at home and part of the family, unlike many modern B&Bs where you just feel like your in a small hotel. We loved our stay and Edith. She made arrangements for us to see the sites and even to visit Budapest for a few days where we stayed at another charming B&B run by her son.
The home is Vienna is centrally located, near to everything including the public transport. We could walk to all the sites in the old district and our daily trip by U-Bahn to the university for our robotics conference was easy and quick. We were also able to quickly get the city tram and the bus to travel to places outside the historic district. We are looking forward to visiting here again this coming spring.
The Barcelona contingent
We loved it! And Edith! Perfect location and fabulous hostess! Delicious Christmas eve dinner, a tour of the Vienna woods and Grinzing. Super recommendations on restaurants and where to go in the city. We felt as if we were at our grandmothers/mothers home. We hope to go back again!
We are a family of four who stayed in Vienna over the New Years weekend with another family. The apartment was a great location (easy walk to the center, close to public transport) and comfortable. As described in other reviews, the apartments do not really offer separate rooms per se - but rather a sleeping loft and a big comfortable, eclectic living room with comfortable beds. Edith was very generous with her time and ideas. She arranged dance lessons (viennese waltz) with a private instructor, offered to teach us how to make strudel, arranged taxis and enthusiastically provided recommendations about where to go and not to go to tap into authentic vienna. She offered to make us a special new years meal and provided the kids with gift. Thank you, Edith, for your kindness and support. We had a great stay.
We were very warmly welcome in a beautiful and comfortable appartment, in which we shared so many great things. It was an extraordinary human adventure.
My wife, son, and I spent five great days in Vienna and were very comfortable in Edith's apartment. There was plenty of room for us (we slept downstairs while our son had a big bed in an upstairs loft), two bathrooms, and the main kitchen was well supplied when the local market was closed. The furnishings are truly wonderful - many carpets and comfortable chairs. Edith gave us clear directions for the public transportation, recommended restaurants and other local attractions (like the wonderful flea & farmers markets at Kettenbruckengasse on the way to Schonbrunn), and served us a characteristic Viennese breakfast. The location is great too, just a couple of blocks from the Ring. Wonderful place to stay!
