... br> Around the corner we ducked into a low doorway and found ourselves in early 18th century Ali Pasha Han, an absolutely lovely little two-storey courtyard with a tiny tea and coffee stall in a corner, the rest of the area recently having been turned into an open-air theatre so there were a few chairs piled onto a small built-up stage on the opposite side. There was a series of arches set into the ground floor walls which used to be filled ...
The funky wireless seemed to miss a day. But it was a day to catch up on laundry, visit the cafe for coffee, visit the Kaiser apartments at the Hofburg Palace, walk the high end shopping street, visit the cathedral and then the Rome museum.

This 3 story hotel offered character and a very quaint space. I absolutely loved the antique feel. There were beautiful hardwood floors and collectors style furniture. In the bathroom was beautiful marble finished tile. The hotel had winding, marble stairs that went to the 3rd floor and the office staff was very accommodating.
