Hotel Scholl — Schwäbisch Hall, Germany
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.
