The space

Late check-in after 21h (9pm): a 40€ extra fee is due in case of late check-in.

Located in a late 18th century building on the Kurrentgasse, a picturesque street a few steps from Judenplatz, in the nicest area of the historic centre, in the middle of the first district. The whole area is pedestrian, including the Kurrentgasse, full with the nicest cafes and restaurants in Vienna. At the ground floor of the building you can enjoy the fresh products of the bakery Grimm, the oldest in Vienna!

The apartment, on the second floor (third floor American) (with elevator) is spacious, 80m² (860 sq.f.), and has 1 master bedroom (with a King size bed and a single bed), a large living/dining room (with one single/double bed and a convertible couch for 2), a lobby with shoe and coat storage, as well as a really fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom (with bathtub) and a separate toilet.

The entertainment center in the living room includes a 37” HDTV with 180 international TV channels and more than 50 radio stations, a CD/DVD/Bluray player and 2.1 stereo system with iPod dock, an extensive HD movie library including a large selection for children, a USB media player which will allow you to connect your hard drive and play your own music or video content, as well as a bookshelf with leaflets and books about Vienna and toys and games for children and adults. An unlimited WIFi ultra-fast Internet connexion is also included in the price.

Experience Vienna!: This is certainly the finest apartment available in Vienna for short-term rentals. We have decorated it with all our heart and included some fine period furniture along with modern amenities for your comfort. This apartment won't just be 'the place you stay while visiting Vienna', but an experience in itself, a part of your Vienna memories, something to write home about.

Location, location. The feeling of living in this part of town, one of the oldest of Vienna (end of 18th century), with all the charming labyrinthine streets filled with traditional shops, restaurants and cafes, is really unique. No cars. St-Stephens cathedral is 200m away from the apartment (about 3 minutes by foot) as is the underground station for the rare times you'll actually have to take transportation (for instance the day you go to the Schönbrunn palace which is out of town). In 5 minutes or less by foot, you can reach the Hofburg, the Spanish riding school, the Graben, Kärntnerstrasse, the Cafe Central and dozens of other sites.

We had a great stay at Christian's apartment. He was very responsive and was able to an immediate check-in even by a short notice. The apartment is located in a very central location, close to all main attraction. It was equipped with all required stuff. The only thing I found missing is a bit of shortage for cloths storage and also it will be nice if there could be a place to lay things in the bathroom... but other than that I would stay there again if I got the opportunity...

We had an excellent stay in the Sonata apartment. The furnishings are lovely and the mattresses were excellent. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are two high-quality grocery stores within a few minutes walk from the apartment. The immediate area is pedestrian and the general location could not be beat -it's within a 5-minute walk to Stephansdom. Christian was an excellent host and is clearly working hard to provide a great experience for his guests. Wifi worked perfectly all the time.

When we arrived at the airport, Christian made himself available to guide us to the apartment and give us a warm welcome. The accommodation was to the high standard described on the website, very comfortable for a family of four. Christian provided clear instructions on the main amenities, pointed out the 'must see' attractions in and around Vienna, local facilities, shops etc. Having left us to it, he remained contactable at all times to support us throughout our stay - the perfect host, with additional resources on tap if necessary. We couldn't get the coffee maker to work and some of the crockery/cutlery had not been cleaned/checked. Other than that, Sonata is highly recommended and we would happily stay there again. Considering the central location in the heart of the city, a family of four would struggle to secure better value accommodation. Combined with all that Vienna has to offer, the above helped to make the perfect family break.

Response from Christian:
Thanks for your review about your stay in Sonata! - the coffee maker had a problem and we had it repaired- and it now works fine; had you told us this during your stay we would have provided a spare one - as for the cutlery we have asked the cleaners to pay special attention to this Taking the opportunity to address questions of other guests below: - the toilet bowl in Sonata has been changed: it is now brand new - late arrival of guests: guests choose their time of arrival freely (after earliest check-in time), and we are always on time to welcome them. Having personnel wait when a guest fails to inform us of their being late is not only impolite it also costs money. When we are informed of delays, or given flight numbers (so we can check actual landing time), we never charge extra for delays. - we checked the bed: the problem was with loose screws in the bed structure, not the mattress. We tightened the screws and that bed still provides the great experience all our beds provide, since we pay particular attention to this.

The apartment was in a perfect location, walkable to most of the landmarks that we want to visit. It was a spacious and well equipped apartment and absolutely spotless. They have very considerately prepared toys, bath tub and high chair for our baby. But be warned that you have to be on time to meet the owners as they will charge 10 Euros fine for each hour you're late. We were 2 hours late during our road trip over so we had to pay 20 Euros. I echo the other lady's sentiments that the toilet need an upgrade. Other than that, it was absolutely the place to stay if you're in Vienna.

Christian was helpful and very quick to respond to any of my questions. Location and directions, very clear. The spacious apartment is a lovely one bedroom studio, with a bed in the main living area and another single bed in a large bedroom, therefore not a lot of privacy. I wouldn't stay here with people I don't know very well. Well equiped, towels a bit rough but overall has everything you may need. Pros: Location is spectacular, walking distance to shops, restaurants, train, tourist attractions. The apartment was spotless! It's big enough for a family of 4. Gorgeous old building with a lift. Quiet but in the buzz of town. Excellent Austrian experience. Cons: mattress in king bed was terrible, I ended up sleeping in the sofa bed. The toilet bowl is horrendous and needs to join the 21st century.

We enjoyed staying at this apartment which was very conveniently located about a block from Judenplatz and just a few blocks from St. Stephens. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and we had everything we needed. Sometimes communicating through AirBNB email is complicated but once we connected with Christian, he was helpful in showing us the apartment and the neighborhood and his advice was good about restaurants, stores, etc. We really enjoyed our visit to Vienna and our stay at Sonata!
