Concierge.com's insider take:
A trendy, tastefully furnished conversion of a medieval building on the city's most popular street, Blaue Gans encompasses its own in-house gallery, complete with a sculpture garden, several "house" artists, and a guest exhibitor. Some of the 40 rooms are small, so consider reserving one of the two junior suites, with their separate sitting rooms and incongruous medieval arches. Decor has been kept simple (think upmarket IKEA), with light color schemes such as pale yellow. There's a garden restaurant and a cocktail bar with chill-out music.
