Overview

Description

TOP 8

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 Leopoldstadt

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.

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.

Beautiful artistic apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and unique apartment with high ceilings, wooden floods and colourful paintings on the walls. It has everything you need for a short stay in Vienna. Comfortable beds, sufficiently equipped kitchen. The two nearest metro stations "Taborstraße" and "Schottenring" are about a 5min and 10min walk respectively and will take you to most places. There are quite a few restaurants and good supermarket "Spar" in the area as well (all within 5min walk). All in all it was a great stay.

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. 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.
