First, let it be clear that my review refers to the location on Steingasse, 24. As it has been pointed out by other reviewers, there is no way of telling where you will end up staying if booking with Belvedere Apartments. In fact, we had booked with La Scala Apartments (see my review there) on the basis of slightly better reviews but, without as much as a prior notice, we were told that we would have to live on Steingasse, 24, owned by the Belvedere Apartments.
Do not be misled by nice pictures on their web-site. Although they may be accurate in respect of their Fasangasse location, the Steingasse place is poorly maintained and is outright flithy. The only good thing about it is the size of rooms. The cleaning and hygiene standards leave much to be desired, just look at huge yellowish stains on the towers they provided. The shower drain was blocked: every time we opened the tap in the bathroom or kitchen sink, dirty water started coming up in the shower. When taking a shower, we had to stand in a pool of dirty water. We confronted the owner about the issue and he promised that it would be fixed on Monday (it was Saturday and we were leaving on Sunday). I would not even mention the yellow sink and hanging wires, the pictures I have taken speak for themselves.
Finally, it has to be said that the location is inconvenient for sightseeing. It is too far from the city centre, there are no cafes or restaurants nearby and it feels a bit unsafe after dark.
