Nothing is left to chance in this haven for designophiles. From the sleek restaurant, courtyard patio, and minimalist contemporary furnishings to the unobtrusively attentive service, the experience is polished and refined. The English restaurant owner and designer Sir Terence Conran created the interior for this favorite of artists and musicians. The building was originally a stable for horses pulling stagecoaches between Vienna and Trieste—hence its name. Its old cross-vaulted rooms, which give the structure a distinctive flair, have been transformed into lounges and suites. Bedrooms are midsize to spacious, comfortable and simplistic, with roomy bathrooms. Its acclaimed Italian-inspired restaurant Collio has been a local foodie favorite for years.
