Perched on the Oberer Wöhrd, a small island that divides the Danube, the Sorat Insel-Hotel is just a five-minute walk across the Steinerne Brücke. This short distance yields two key benefits: a perfect panorama of the Altstadt rising above the Danube and refuge from the bustle of the city. Once a factory that forged and gilded metal for churches across Europe, the hotel takes great advantage of its building's massive wood beams and sturdy brick walls.

The lobby is an airy three-story atrium, and the rooms and suites are spacious, brightly decorated and with all modern conveniences. A large fitness center includes a sauna and a solarium.

Most of the rooms offer south-facing views of the Altstadt and the Danube. Number 301, on the eastern corner, has windows on two sides, also allowing downstream views of the Steinerne Brücke and the fast-flowing river. Like other top-floor rooms, it has the added touch of the original slanted ceilings. Its Brandner restaurant features exotic fare like ostrich filet, French pigeon and wild boar. A lobby bar overlooks the river. In-house parking is 17 DM/$8 per day. One room is wheelchair accessible.
