Details for holiday apartment TOP 8, 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.

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.

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. I will be back again for sure.

I highly recommend this property to rent for a short stay or longer stay.

Thank you Christian & Natalija

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!

Schönes, zentrales Appartment (TOP 8)

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment entsprach vollständig dem eingestellten Exposé im Angebot. Es ist schön geräumig und bietet für 2, ggf. auch 3 Personen ausreichend Platz. Eine zusätzliche Schlafmöglichkeit ist im Wohnbereich vorhanden. Die Aufteilung ist praktisch und ansprechend, die Einrichtung gemütlich. W-Lan und TV haben einwandfrei funktioniert. Die Möglichkeit zum Parken im Hof ist bei der Anreise mit dem PKW natürlich ideal ! Die Entfernung zur Innenstadt von Wien und den Sehenswürdigkeiten am anderen Seite des Donaukanals ist fußgängig. In unmittelbarer Nähe befinden sich gute Restaurants sowie natürlich der Donaukanal mit seinen zahlreichen Bars, seiner relaxten "Strandatmosphäre" wo man einen schönen Tag "nearby" noch etwas ausklingen lassen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten bieten Bäckereien, Supermärkte und auch der Karmelitermarkt zwei Straßenecken weiter. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett, zuvorkommend und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns während einer knappen Woche im schönen Wien hier sehr wohlgefühlt und können auch nur weiterempfehlen. Die Küche ist auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt ausgestattet. Ein idealer Aufenthalt, um Wien von einer persönlicheren Seite kennen zu lernen und zu erkunden. Wir kommen gerne wieder !

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.
