History and design of the hotel in Vienna


On your visit to Vienna experience over three centuries of history at our design hotel. Its past is today reflected in its modern yet timeless interiors.

Over 300 years ago DAS TRIEST was once a staging post on the horse-drawn mail coach route between Vienna and Triest. Created in Austria by Sir Terence Conran + Conran & Partners, it is now the top place to go if you set store by first-class design hotel and gastro design in the center of Vienna.


The challenge involving DAS TRIEST was to turn the dated hotel "Stadt Triest" into a unique design hotel, characterised by stylish contemporary design and subtle luxury. Today it is an outstanding example of how to successfully combine a modern look with a traditional building.


The old vaults, which once used to house the stables, have become salons, suites and conference rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology while featuring the distinctive flair of DAS TRIEST.


DAS TRIEST is Sir Terence Conran’s first foray into hotel design. This English designer, who enjoys an international reputation, stands for timeless quality combined with style that is bound to impress with its pure elegance. Conran's intentionally low-key approach is based on the design philosophy of an aesthete who focuses on the essentials.


His style reflects a commitment to contemporary design as well as to high-quality materials and workmanship. Unlike the mass-produced interiors typical of hotel chains, the hotel rooms and suites at the design hotel DAS TRIEST have a unique look of their own.


DAS TRIEST not only features furnishings specially commissioned from well-known designers but is also set off with works of art and accessories to create a stylish overall impression at this design hotel in Vienna's city centre. In addition, the coherent lighting concept ensures a welcoming atmosphere throughout the building. A love of detail comes into for special attention here, demonstrated by the delightful flower arrangements on display in the building.
