The 15th-century yellow façade with white window trimmings harmonizes with the Stadtplatz's fine ensemble of Baroque buildings. Suiting the style, moreover, is this three-star hotel's massively lavish, heraldic portal. An arcaded inner courtyard becomes a convivial Gastgarten during warm-weather periods, and the vaulted-ceiling in the Caféhaus adds a dash of Viennese flair. The 60 guestrooms are nothing fancy, but all come with TV, telephone, bath/shower, and outside views.
