The Concept

Chic. Smart. Simple.


“Details are not the details. They make the design.” – Charles Eames

We believe in sophisticated understatement, simple elegance and individuality. The BL42 combines these elements thus making it an exceptionally stylish apartment to stay in for the modern traveler. You will find carefully selected high-end Scandinavian and other design classics spiced up with a few ethno elements and slight Viennese touches.

And…a lot of classy little details!


“Some people think design is how it looks. But of course [] it’s really how it works.” – Steve Jobs

No worries about any check-in hassles – there will be none (details regarding 24/7 self-check-in). No worries whether you forgot your toothbrush or cotton pads, whether you need to bring an unhandy umbrella along for rainy days, if your adapters will fit the local sockets or if you’ll have some milk for your morning coffee if arriving late at night. You can travel light – we have particularly paid attention to all such and many more little details that, in sum, we hope will make your stay what is commonly called “exceptional”. Go here for the detailed equipment and amenities description.


Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” – Coco Chanel

We like to keep it simple. We focus on the important things without overloading the space with unnecessary furniture, “pomp” or blatant “chichi”. So no dust catchers that serve no purpose but instead a bright, light and airy atmosphere. Guests should be able to unfold, relax and have a restful good night sleep. It’s the simple things that count: a spotlessly clean space, a spacious wardrobe to hang or lay your clothes, a top quality and comfortable bed, crisp bed sheets, fresh towels, high-end bathroom essentials and thoughtful amenities (see list of amenities here).

The Location

The BL42 is located in Vienna’s 20th district right next to the 9th district at the Donaukanal, a river bordering the city center which is regularly used by joggers and cyclists. For those who enjoy walking or cycling by the water front: The paths on the Donaukanal lead you directly downtown to Schwedenplatz (which is only a few minutes walk away from St. Stephens Cathedral) and feature a lot of trendy places for food, drinks and clubbing on the way. For those who don’t want to lose any time: You’ll get to the city center and all major sights and hot spots within a couple of minutes by public transport. And one more thing: The apartment itself faces the courtyard so certainly no street noise disturbing your well-deserved sleep.
