Hotel Gift Cards Hotlist

Built into the original Medieval town walls of Hall, this former guilders’ house of traditional Tirol style has stood here for well over half a century with records dating back to 1450. Today, behind the rose petal façade, lies the small boutique Hotel Kontor – a restored icon of stucco charisma with a handful of stylish suites. Following a long and intense period of restoration, which involved scraping paint, wallpaper and plaster layers off by hand, the raw historical architectural characteristics of the house were slowly revealed to create a canvas of heritage meets design. Delicate Baroque ornamentation, chunky lime-washed walls, wooden-beamed ceilings, twisted rafters, waxed parquet flooring, gorgeous oriel windows and salvaged fixtures cling to the secrets of a bygone era and breathe a sense of deep ancestry. Where else does a spiral staircase wind itself around an exposed patch of pared-back stone wall - letting guests see the very fabric and soul of the hotel. Equally contrasting is the sleek glass elevator that shows the heart of the building, embedded in its historical wall. Elegantly simple, Kontor Boutiquehotel's design is contemporary with boutique furnishings, bespoke carpentry and minimalist accents offset by a subtle palette of clock-face whites, cardinal reds, cotton greys, wet putty and oatmeal.
