Love is... Romantik
In 2009, I blogged a segment on the Romantik Hotels in Europe, read previous posts here. Romantik Hotels & Restaurant prides itself as 'an alternative to the big hotel chains'. "Be it as small as 6 rooms or as large as 90 rooms, in a town or a holiday area - the variety of the historic buildings and the individuality of every single Romantik Hotel are expressed within a broad spectrum. But no matter how different and individual each establishment is, all Romantik hoteliers are passionate hosts. The guest is always the central focus of attention."
I first discovered the Romantik Hotels, while strolling the cobblestone streets of Lugano, Switzerland. I was quickly walking with my tour group to meet our sunset cruise in the Ticino region on the Swiss-Italian border, but I was so taken by this particular restaurant, that I quickly fell behind the group. I risked losing them all together, but I couldn't help it as I was in a trance. It was so intimate with a small little terrace, sage linens, small vases with white flowers, and little candle lanterns. The tiny terrace was affixed to a cozy indoor seating; to which I peered in through old wooden window panes.
Happy Romantik Traveling!!
