Details for TOP 7 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

Carefully our house, originally buildet around 1850, was completely renovated in 2008. Originally a so-called “Bassena” house (running water only outside the flat), the apartments have been renovated intelligent, loving and superior to today's living standards. Top 7, formerly a so-called room-kitchen-cabinet flat consists now of four rooms: the former entrance / kitchen area was reclassified to an entrance, a spacious bathroom and separate toilet. Further there is a Dwelling-/Cookingarea (20sqm) and at least a spacious bedroom (25 sqm). From a substandard apartment so generously acting, a modern apartment has been created. This effect is reinforced by minimalistic but aestheticly high quality furnishings. Ideally for 2 persons, this apartment is capable also for up to 4 people by providing extra beds.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Christian Droste

My name is Christian Droste, I was born in 1964. I live in this building since I was born. I am a freelance artist and musician. My wife Natalia and I run our holiday apartments since the summer of 2009.

Christian Droste purchased this apartment in 1864

Why Christian Droste chose Vienna City Center

Our house, a 160-year-old 'Gründerzeithaus' comes from family. My grandfather, he was a blacksmith, had his workshop here and lived here also. It is the center of our living and the center of our work. Workshop, gallery, hotel, office.

What makes this apartment unique

I was born here and I grew up here in this house. It's my belly and my brain and I love it with my whole heart. Our building is a 160 year old lady with a lot of charm in one of the most beautiful districts of Vienna.

Spacious apartment in a convenient position

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was quite large and reasonably well supplied, the only extra thing we would have liked is a microwave.

It is only about a fifteen minute walk to the old city and only about two hundred metres to he underground. We found it very convenient as we were travelling without a car.

Christian, the apartment manager was most helpful and obliging.

Very Beautiful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Christian. He is a good and kind host who provides all of the information that you need. His apartments are so very well designed and his artwork is always a pleasure to see. His english is excellent, making communication both online and in person very easy. If we come back to Vienna, we will come here! So close and convenient!

six people spanning five decades, two apartments, perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We rented a two bedroom and a one bedroom at Schiffamtsgasse 11 from Christian, who lives in the same building and was always available to answer any questions or help out in any way. (I was clueless about the coffee machine - he brought his own over in case the one there had a problem, it didn't, I was the problem.) Christian has a table full of info on Vienna in the hallway, in case you didn't bring your own guide books.

The apartments were spacious and spotless, great huge bathrooms, fantastic light through big windows (and also good curtains for sleeping), and a washing machine in the hallway. We personally loved all the art on the walls, too.

The metro is down the street, but the building is so close to the Altstadt that we could walk just about anywhere around town - Stephansdom, MAK, Hofburg Palace, the Opera, Kaertner Strasse - take the Saltztorbruecke (except for Schoenbrunn, which is on the line closest to home, too!).

The supermarket around the corner has everything you might need, and the Karmelitermarkt around the corner in the other direction has many little cafes and restaurants (try Tewa!). Four of us ate in every morning at the big kitchen table while two popped around the corner for coffee out.

Our personal take on the famous cafes: Sperl and Central worth it, each for entirely different reasons.

The whole experience couldn't have been any better! If you're traveling as a family, or simply want to have more space than a standard hotel room offers, this can't be beat!

A great place to be once initial problems such as shower geyser not working , light bulbs gone, coffee making equipment lacking etc. Plus washing machine door unbelievable that it still shuts and the machine goes! Needs a screw driver to get the clothes out. If you can live through all this it is a great place. Maybe we shouldn't be so frank but we still have rated this high.

Amazingly comfortable, quiet, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Christian upon our arrival, and spoke with him once more in the middle of the trip. He was very friendly.

Getting to the apartment is extremely easy. We took an Uber on our first arrival from the train station, because we didn't want to fuss with local transit, but subsequently we discovered how easy it is. From Hauptbahnhof, you can ride a few stops on the U1, switch underground to the U2, a few more stops, then you exit and are only 3 minute walk from apartment. However, when you exit, make sure you exit the station from the far end of the train (on the north side of the Danube) as the train actually stops directly under the river.

About the apartment: Bright, airy, amazingly spacious. Stylish but simple. The bathroom is spectacular. The photos, as good as they are, don't quite do this place justice. There are 2 flights of concrete stairs inside the building up to the apartment. They are wide and shallow steps, not difficult at all to navigate.

Near the apartment we were told of a few restaurants on Christian's information, one of which we tried (Hungarian place), and another that we wanted to try but ran out of time (pizza). We also found a Mexican restaurant right around the corner (Los Mexikas, I think), and it was so good we went there twice.

It was great being close to the Danube, close to transit, and also a reasonable walk to many places if you prefer to walk. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Vienna.

Excellent weekend in Vienna

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our 3 days trip to Vienna where we stayed in the apartment 7. We were very impressed by the venue. The apartment is very spacious, clean and very well looked after. Location is probably the best you can find for this price - only 20 min walk to the Stephansplatz and less than 5 min walk to the nearest metro station. Christian is extremely friendly and helpful person who will always meet and greet you as appropriate. So highly recommended and next time will certainly chose the same venue during my trip to Vienna.

Our apartments are located in the 2nd quarter at the “Karmeliterviertel”, only a stone's throw away from the historical city center (10 min walk). In 5 minutes you can walk to the beautiful Augarten, to relax or just visite the world famous Augarten china factory. Also nearby is the Danube Canal, which has developed into a boulevard with nice beach bars and restaurants. We should also mention the Karmelitermarkt - a meeting place for young and old, with it´s weekly Saturday farmers' market, with countless austrian organic cheese, meat and vegetable dishes and many other delicacies. Again, there are many good restaurants, bars and meeting places that are frequented by artists, all kind of people. In the Wiener Prater children and parents find traditional “Rummel” and modern attractions side by side. This is the special charm of the Prater. We have also some museums in our district. We do not write here about all the atractions of the historical center because the are known worldwide.
