Rooms The interior design is a contemporary interpretation of the 1920s. I stayed in the deluxe room with a king bed.

I enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Restaurant am Steinplatz consisting of oatmeal porridge, a colourful platter of freshly cut fruits and fried eggs. I visited the retro Bar am Steinplatz in the evening and sipped on a glass of German Sekt or sparkling wine and paired it with delicious finger food, before retiring to my room.
