The 29 rooms and suites are charmingly decorated with dark wooden floors and furniture, rich patterned rugs and heavy velvet drapes that ooze luxury and comfort. All rooms contain period features such as wooden ceilings and wall paintings, that maintain the historic character of the hotel. Why not upgrade to a suite and enjoy spectacular views over the Old town and castle. Under the hotel in the building cellars is the beautiful spa area where exposed brick walls and stone archways are complemented by candlelight to create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Whether relaxing in the pool or indulging in a treatment the underground spa area is a tranquil retreat from days spent exploring the city. The hotel also has a good restaurant where regional and traditional specialities are served, imagined in fresh and innovative ways. During the summer months, enjoy the striking, panoramic views of the Old town and castle from the restaurant’s roof terrace.
