The train is clean and we have a smooth 2 1/2 hour ride to Vienna. The owner of the apartment provided us with transportation instructions involving two buses. Instead we taxi to apartment with a driver chatting, pointing out the buildings and providing tips along the way.
We settle into the apartment. It is not as inspiring as our place in Budapest, but still has high ceilings and older wood floors. It is nice and matches the photos on AirBnB. It is only five blocks from the western edge of the inner ring road that circles the major museums, cultural centers and government buildings.
