Imre & Martin’s secrets

Imre Sooäär and Martin Breuer like to share their personal favorites.

We list a collection of hotels and restaurants that we truly enjoy.

Our list is far from systematic nor do we pretend to be complete or objective.

As the title indicates; it is merely a personal selection, from the very simple to the sophisticated, that we -for various reasons- consider to be special and worth a visit.
