Das Triest

Wiedner Hauptstrasse 12, Vienna, Vienna, A-1040, Austria

Transformed by Sir Terence Conran into an ultrasleek ocean liner, this design hotel was once a postal-coach station on the route between Vienna and the Italian port city of Trieste; the original cross vaulting remains in the lounges and in some suites. Otherwise the interior and furnishings are tasteful and subdued. In the rooms, beige-on-beige fabrics are offset by glowing pine wall-size headboards. Blue carpeting and honey-hued woods radiate elegance and comfort, and even the doorknobs feel good to the touch. The hotel also allures with an excellent Austro-Italian restaurant, Collio. Das Triest may be a bit off the beaten track, but is still within easy walking distance of the city center.
