In the scenic, historic town of Scwäbisch Hall, near Stuttgart, southern Germany, one traditional hotel has caught up with the times. Hotel Scholl, open since 1955, recently unveiled a revamped interior for each of its four period buildings. In contrast to its protected timber-wood façades, the interiors are all bright colours and bold textures, with quirky design features overseen by Stuttgart designers Seifried & Mack. Each room is an enticing amalgam of tidy minimalism and flamboyance: geometric wood desks are juxtaposed with bathrooms lined with gold-stained pinewood. Downstairs, guests will also enjoy the expansive library and newly reopened café, a testament to the Scholl family's baking history.
