Near the Kunsthaus art gallery, this secluded boutique hotel is in a genteel 15th-century merchant’s house in a picturesque residential district that twists up from the quaint squares and cobbled alleys of the Niederdorf. The bedrooms are large and airy, and each is individually decorated with traditional English-country-house style furnishings and stylish, modern bathrooms. On the top (fourth) floor, the spacious, air-conditioned deluxe double room and junior suite, with its Jacuzzi, are the pick of the bunch. The elegant restaurant serves upmarket, seasonal Swiss fare and has an extensive list of Swiss wines. And the leafy patio garden here makes a nice break from the bustle of the city center in the summer.
