art & design apartment, private parking, 10 minutes to historical center!! - TOP 8

Bedrooms 1
Space 50 m²
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights




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.

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.

Great location, fair value

  • 3 of 5

Great location about a ten minute walk to the city centre, there were quite a few good restaurants close by as well. The apartment was spacious, but not quite as nice as the pictures show. The kitchen was haphazardly equipped and the bedroom was small.

What a perfect apartment and perfect location!!! Everything was perfect! The location was extremely important to us and we didn't make an mistake it was perfect. Christian and Natasha are very friendly and helped us in every way. The apartment was beautiful and very clean. Christian also organised for us airport pickup and drop off which made it very easy.

Nice Vienna Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had large family so we rented three apartments. Centrally located, authentic Vienna apartments with comfortable beds. Spacious and owner had cribs set up for us and an extra stroller ready for us to borrow. He was very accommodating. We enjoyed it so much more than a hotel as it allowed us to live among the residents and enjoy the atmosphere.

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 fantastic days in Vienna! The apartment is very comfortable, has everything we needed for the trip. The location is great, just 3 blocks from the underground and a 10 minute walk to the St. Stephens' square.

We were greeted by Christian, the owner, who was very helpful and explained everything to us. We will definitely come back!

Wunderbares WIEN-Apartment TOP 8

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind absolute Wien-Liebhaber und planten diesen Sommer einfach mal in Wien zu "leben". Dazu wollte wir gerne in einem Apartment wohnen, in welchem man sich wie zu Hause fühlt.

Vorne weg: Dieses wunderbare Apartment hat unsere Erwartung MEHR als übertroffen.


Wir wohnten schon an manchen Plätzen in Wien, aber die Lage von unserem Apartment hier war bisher die beste Location.

Das Karmeliterviertel mit dem Karmeliter-Platz ist einfach wunderschön. Man findet hier alles...fantastische Pizzerias, coole Coffee-Stations, Gemüse und Käse-Stände...was das Herz begehrt.

Zum Einkauf für die Wohnung (Grundnahrungsmittel): BILLA und SPAR gleich um die Ecke.

Besser geht es nicht.


Super sauber. Super groß. Super gemütlich.

Feine 4-Teilung: Küche, Bad, Schlafzimmer und Wohnzimmer mit genialer Couch.

Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet. Gute Töpfe, Besteck, Geschirr, Tee und Kaffee-Accesoires (French-Press, Mokka-Herd-Gerät,...).

Salz, Zucker, Olivenöl, Pfeffer, Tee, Kaffee....alles da. Spitze!

Badezimmer und Toilette in sehr gutem Zustand und sehr sauber wie alles.

Frische Handtücher und Toilettenpapier erhält man auf Anfrage. Klasse Service!

Wenn man von einem ausgedehnten Wien-Bummel nach hause kommt, kann man sich NICHT wohler fühlen.

Es war einfach wunderbar und wir waren wirklich ZU HAUSE.


Sehr freundlich, sehr hilfsbereit. Coole Tipps!

Alles in allem - es war eine FANTASTISCHE Zeit in dieser tollen Wohnung.

Wir kommen GARANTIERT wieder.


Liebe Grüße

Thorsten und Moni

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.
