This unique Basel institution, open since 1989, brings together culture and hospitality. Now run by Raphael and Nathalie Wyniger, it is part gallery, with exhibitions in some of the rooms and corridors, and part hotel.
In fact, there are two hotels here: the Art Hotel with eight bedrooms and a suite; and the gallery hotel with 20 bedrooms and four suites. There are other hotels in Switzerland that look like art galleries, with superb collections of paintings, but here the rooms can claim to be works of art, each designed by a different artist. Their only condition was to maintain a high standard of comfort. You may like some and loathe some.
