Review: The history of Markusturm goes back a few years. Markusturm, or St. Mark's Towergate, was part of the first city wall built in 1172. The building that now is the hotel was originally a customs house and it wasn't until 1488 when an inn and a brewery were added that the long tradition of hospitality began. Though somewhat unsophisticated and schmaltzy for a hotel with these prices, the general feeling is one of friendly comfort. A standard double that costs 270 DM ($159) during high season is pleasantly furnished and has TV, radio, phone and a full bathroom with tub, shower and hair dryer. One of the 300 DM ($176) rooms, on the other hand, was much larger with a sofa and leather chair in a separate sitting area and a huge bathroom. Some rooms have four-poster beds, himmel betts.
