Fodor's Review

This is your chance to stay in a turn-of-the-20th-century castle, a white fort with battlements set high on a hill and commissioned by a German count for his fiancée in 1914. A recent renovation has given the spacious interiors a luxurious fairy-tale quality, with handmade furniture, mirrors and chandeliers, and beautiful fabrics that transport you to a stylish bygone age perfectly mixed with state-of-the-art modern comforts. The hotel also has amazing views of the city,

and offers an excellent breakfast on the gorgeous outdoor patio. The excellent food and wine at Leo's at the Castle are what you would expect of a Relais & Château property. Book well in advance, as this is the most sought-after hotel in the city.
