Rooms 120 /Architecture Peter Lorenz and HD Architects /Interior Design Sir Terence Conran and Esther Stocker /The Original Hans Christoph List
A pitch perfect combination of history and modern design awaits you at Das Triest, which opened its doors as a hotel in 1995 but back in the day of horse-drawn mail coaches served as a staging post on the route between Vienna and Trieste. Austrian architect Peter Lorenz and British interior designer Sir Terence Conran joined forces to preserve parts of the original structure, combining elements of imperial elegance with sober lines. The result is a sharp contrast to the city’s charming, late 19th-century Art Nouveau architecture. Subtle nautical touches like old ship railings and flags feature throughout the hotel, evoking an indirect homage to the port city of Trieste. Seventy-one amply-appointed guestrooms and suites by Conran feature porthole mirrors and windows in the bathrooms, while specially commissioned photographs of Trieste and Vienna further celebrate a connection to the building’s historic role in international travel. This singular retreat has been expanded with an additional 49 rooms and suites designed by Austrian artist Esther Stocker, whose work stands autonomously beside that of Conran's, producing an interesting and creative design dialogue. Today’s travelers yearning for reserved nostalgia combined with modern comforts will have found what they’re looking for.

Rooms & Suites
It’s rare that one gets to stay in a room designed by a legend, but 71 guestrooms and suites at Das Triest are the exception, offering interiors crafted by none other than Sir Terence Conran. Additionally, Conran’s contemporary design statement has been amplified by 49 new rooms and suites designed by Esther Stocker. Rooms come in a wide assortment of sizes, from Superior, which is suitable for up to three people and offers views of a garden or the city center, to the massive Triest Suite, which includes specially made furnishings and such delights as a dining table and side tables by B&B Italia, a sofa by Wittmann, lounge chair tables by Minotti, and “Miss K” bedside table lamps designed by Philippe Starck. Other rooms options abound, but all offer inspiring design choices.
