Owner info

Year Purchased: 1945

About the owner: Ms Edith B Molnar, a former teacher, film-maker (assistant director), entrepreneur - businesswoman, writer / poet...Truly experienced with a lifetime of achievements. As a child lived through WWII, as teenager participated in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution against Soviet terror, defected to the West in 1971 with her son Laszlo, who became a US Olympian in 1988, 1989 US national champion and world champion, '89 US Athlete of the year. Vivien her grand-daughter is a student of international relations, communication of the Pazmany university in Budapest achieved a scholarship to Lisbon extended studies, and she is a great dancer, now also trainer.

Why the Owner Chose Roßau, Wien, Austria:
The true happiness comes from sharing, giving and love This centrally located B&B in Vienna's prestigious first district is our family's safe heaven since the WWII ended. It contains memories and treasures collected (or rather rescued from the war). We opened our historic home for visitors to share and enjoy the elegance of the past, and beauty of Vienna and Budapest. Both cities are listed among the top 25 of the world's best cities to visit. Despite of the renovation we kept the original style and added carefully modern facilities such as air-condition, central heating, modernized kitchen, bathrooms, etc. It has been a pleasure to accept the complements and see the smiling faces of our guests, and see them return.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
If you choose to stay in our accommodation, you may expect everything you would in a elegant hotel, not so formal but with more personal and customized care. Our city tours are taking the guests to hidden sites and history in every step on the way. Vienna's great location: in the center, however quiet with a park and play-ground across our building. Near to public transportation and conveniences.
