The hotel was completely renovated in 1996 and while some of the guestrooms are quite small, all are attractive and comfortable and the restaurant is considered one of the best in town. The elegant dining room, where main dishes are in the 22 to 35 DM ($16-$21) range, is all mirrors and brass and dark wood wainscoting under a dramatic rounded sepia ceiling.

A broad wooden staircase in the lobby leads up to a warren of corridors that open unexpectedly onto courtyards and sitting alcoves. Don't be surprised to come upon a full suit of armor tucked into one corner or another. The flagship room, Number 101, is decorated in a soothing combination of yellow and blue and has a cozy sitting nook with tall windows that overlook the Fischmarkt below. The bath is large and fully tiled. There's a power shower, heated towel bars, and a full range of quality amenities. In high season this room is a pricey 365 DM ($216). In all there are 40-rooms all with minibars, hairdryers and cable TV.
