In all our years of reviewing hotels across Europe, this is one of the hippest we’ve ever seen. The reception area is a curiosity shop in the corner of this lovingly restored wooden building that is over a century old. Rooms are a mix of rustic hardwood floors, oriental carpets, army footlockers for tables and footstools, assorted antiques and modern conveniences like cable TV with DVD players and modern private bathrooms. You can also stay in the Elvis suite decorated with pictures of the king and other garish design elements. The Valhalla Wine & Coffee bar is also at your disposal, but remember to ask for a room with a balcony and to book well in advance.
