This is a memorably eccentric hotel—most of its white-on-white rooms either have frescoes of mythological themes or are works of artists' whimsy—but the real draw at this otherworldly place is its astonishing city-center garden, a tropical oasis of lemon, magnolia, and palm trees. You can breakfast (extra) or dine here by candlelight; the demi-pension (breakfast and dinner) option costs €34 per person, yet with so many eateries close by, it's best not to tie yourself in.
