Das Triest Hotel was Vienna’s first boutique hotel. Redesigned in 1996 by Sir Terence Conran, the Das Triest Hotel has welcomed many famous guests, including David Bowie and Robbie Williams. But the well deserved fame of being one of the best hotels in Vienna does not mean a histrionic appearance or rock ’n roll excesses. Not at all (possibly the reason why the stars have cherished it). The entire ambiance is rather laid-back, a few notes of color to bring a little energy, some exquisite punctuations of style: Frette bedlinen, Molton Brown toiletries. A lovely Mediterranean courtyard welcomes guests for breakfast or barbecue during Summer (we strongly recommend this time of the year in Vienna), the award-winning restaurant Collio greets everybody with the best Italian gourmet cuisine. Every corner of the Das Triest Hotel is a kind of an ode to peacefulness: the beautiful St. Stephens Cathedral’s perspective and other city views add to it. Nested by the trendy Freihaus quarter, a great area to stay in Vienna, the Das Triest Hotel is ridiculously close (5 mInutes) to some of the most glamorous Vienna’s landmarks such as Vienna Opera or the Naschmarkt open-air market.
