Paula has been a Michelberger for five years. An opera singer for 20. And a rough Romanian soul for a few years more. Her and her band Zmei3 launched their debut album with us last month. Thank you for a wonderful show!
You had us from the get go, clutching our hearts and smiling at strangers. Here’s the video and some photos from the show
Little Scream – AKA Montreal based multi-instrumentalist, writer, and visual artist Laurel Sprengelmeyer – has just released her second album, titled Cult Following. And on Tuesday 28th June she’ll be bringing her own brand of grand-scale indie pop to the hotel for a show in our courtyard.

When we were building the hotel in 2008, we listened to a lot (…)
To all the artists, guests and staff that made our 24 hour Piano Day concert so special, we thank you. We’ve just received the video our friend Stephan from Hauskonzerte made, and it was worth the wait. Here it is, as well as some photos we took.

Piano Day is a worldwide celebration and different from usual concerts and events in that it welcomes anyone who wants to take part. On this day every kind of piano lover – young and old, amateur and pro, of any musical direction (…)
Thanks to everyone that came along and especially to Graham Dunning, Wouter Jaspers and Daniel Cupic for making it such a fun evening. A special mention to Wouter who is the first person ever to play a plate at the hotel.
