Wainscoting & Whimsy Near the Sihl River
Occupying a stately green building on the banks of the Sihl River, this intimate 16-room hotel straddles the border between the moneyed Altstadt (Old Town) and hipper Kreis 4. Rooms meld classic details (wainscoting, striped wallpaper) with punches of whimsy (cupboards depicting snow-capped mountains, neon-colored lamps). Thanks to a partnership with the nearby Foundation for Constructive and Concrete Art, there’s a fantastic art collection on the premises with works by Jean Tinguely and Sol LeWitt.
