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
The hotel has got an excellent location, just some 100 meter and you have trams, and another 100 meter you are at the U-Bahn on Karlsplatz. You can reach practically everything. The breakfast offer is very good, the only problem, that sometimes, you have to fight, as the restaurant is too small for many people. The real problem was our room - it was dark, looking fto a backyard, the bathroom for retro lovers, and the TV standing on a consol, was terrible.
I have to admit, that I wrote to the Management, and I got a proper answer from them.
We arrived at the hotel and received a friendly welcome our room was at the back of the hotel, the room was spotless with all that was needed a safe, a fridge-and a coffee machine. Plenty of storage space a roomy powerful shower and separate toilet, the hotel is in a good location as well.
The decor is very modern which we liked our bed was super comfy and you could get extra pillows if needed. More importantly the room was so quiet we hardly heard a sound, room service was quick and efficient all staff were friendly.
We didn’t use the restaurant, breakfast was on the expensive side there are plenty of places to get a good breakfast at half the price.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel but would ask for a room at the back of the hotel.
Very clean hotel, good location for all the sights. The staff are so helpful and friendly. If you're staying here or not, definately pop in to the Alimentari as they have a great collection of Austrian wines and have a chat with Marcus, he is so knowledgeable.

This property recommended
We spent 5 nights in this hotel. We had a beautiful quite room with a view, very comfy bad,large bathroom, very nice and welcoming stuff. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the opera house and 10 minutes from the old city, very close to the museum quarter. Breakfast is expensive but there are plenty of nice coffee places and restaurants arround.
