Set in a turn-of-the-century redbrick building, this ultrachic hotel with large rooms is next door to the Ars Electronica Museum and just a five-minute walk across the bridge from the Altstadt. The guest rooms are so enormous that even though they have a good-size bed, desk, bookcases, and seating arrangements, they still seem rather bare. Rolf Benz designed the striking leather furniture in the three suites and the Philippe Starck-designed bathrooms feature an open-style bath. If you don't book a suite, request a room on the rear side of the house; these are much quieter.
