Highs & Lows

  • Insanely comfy mattresses & pillows — I guess this is what sleeping on a cloud feels like.

  • On-point design all around, super photogenic and Instagrammable — heaven for all #interior lovers (and don’t forget to check out the library!)

  • Aesop products in all bathrooms — I’m sold!

  • Salad bar and sandwiches at Delish are exceptionally good — don’t miss the cinnamon rolls.

  • Water carafes in each room and you can refill these at a spring water tap on each floor.

  • Some rooms face the street — which might be a little too noisy at night for those who are light sleepers.

  • Restaurant

    Marktgasse has two restaurants: Baltho for Dinner (try the Bang-Bang Chicken) and Delish, which is an all day restaurant — don’t miss the cinnamon rolls, they are to die for!

    Drinks are exceptional and made with a great eye for detail. Make sure to meet the Chef de Bar Luis, a true legend. Tip: ask for his “Walk in the Woods” cocktail.

    No mini bar in the rooms, but coffee makers in the suites. You’ll find water carafes in each room you can refill at a spring water tap on each floor.

  • Children
