This agreeable, reasonably-priced inn and restaurant in the Mariatrost section is easily reached via tram from downtown. Most rooms have panoramic views of countryside and mountains, a few look over a nearby cemetery. They are decorated in tones of blue with harmonizing printed drapes and furnished with phones, cable TV and minibars. Room 203, an average-sized single has wide windows and a sweeping mountain and pasture vista. Number 205, a junior suite, is decorated in rose and gray and has two rooms and a french-style double bed.

Ohnime's restaurant serves simple fare and its prices are moderate: I had fried chicken, green salad and white wine for about $18.
