Housed in a 300-year-old former coach house, Hotel Das Triest is Sir Terence Conran’s very first foray into hotel design. The original vaulted ceilings are still on show but the legendary designer’s unmistakable style is evident throughout — think contemporary interiors, expert workmanship and stunning lighting. Chrome finishes and leather banquettes feel current and cool, while crawling ivy and potted plants lend a classic, warm and inviting welcome.
Bed and Bath
Each of the 72 rooms are decked out in sleek furnishings from the likes of Philippe Starck, Wittmann and Minotti. Bedrooms are minimal, with low platform beds, wood furnishings, soft lighting and personal iMacs (in the Superior and Deluxe rooms). B&O flatscreens feature in the Junior Suites and Suites. All the artwork was created by locals, and some of the rooms come with their own terraces or private gardens. Clean white bathrooms are stocked with Molton Brown toiletries.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails can be taken in the tranquil inner courtyard and garden, which is surrounded by 30-year-old olive trees and fragrant rosemary bushes (it’s open from 8 a.m. till 11 p.m.). Or you can dine at Collio, the hotel’s northern Italian restaurant. In colder months the Silver Bar is a Deco-style spot with leather banquettes and chrome tables where an expert mixologist concocts champagne cocktails and martini specials.
How to Get There
They have organised a Christmas party just above us...this is like trying to sleep in a nightclub. There seems to be a conference room in the hotel where they organise parties...and of course clients are secondary. We have had to call reception 3 times and no solutions offered...
nice hotel good location not far from Naschmarket , ideal location to visit Vienna, we had a bit bad luck being in the old part , new part is a real design hotel , old part isn't
great breakfast, friendly employees
Das Treist an ok hotel in a good location. Bar very expensive, didn't use the restaurant so can't comment. Reception staff were functional and told us what we needed to know. Rooms were clean but small and no particular view. As in other reviews shower and bathroom door are clear glass so no privacy which if you were travelling with a friend other than a partner would be a bit difficult. Hotel could do with providing more information for visitors regarding surrounding area and how to use trams, underground etc.
We visited to see the Christmas markets which were ok but everywhere was not particularly Christmassy. To be fair maybe we were too early and should have left it until well into December to visit.
Good sized room on back of hotel. Quiet location but easy walk into city centre. We walked everywhere from the hotel except Schönbrunn Palace which is only a 20min tube ride away. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel. Only had breakfast at the hotel and there was plenty of choice. Bar was small but staff were brilliant and there was a good atmosphere in there. The glass door to shower took a little getting used as travelling with a friend. Would certainly recommend as a place to stay and would be tempted back to see what Vienna has to offer in the summer.
On busy street but our room was at the back and quiet. Trams stop almost outside, Underground 250 yds. We walked round the entire city-centre easily from the hotel.
Very comfortable, spacious room, staff extremely helpful, tolerated my 60-yr-old O level German but were fluent in English mercifully.
We went there on an easyJet package, having found an earlier one good. We found an excellent concentration of reasonably-priced and varied restaurants nearby in the Naschmarkt - turn left out of hotel, walk past the university centre, turn left and keep going for about 7 mins, and the (very large) market is on your right.
