A little while ago, I discovered the most creative guesthouse in Stuttgart I’ve ever seen. I was planning a hen’s night for my friend Gaelle and needed a room for her and one of her friends. I was checking the big hotel websites but I wanted something special for this special occasion. Then a friend recommended the “Kunstpension” (which translates into “Guesthouse of Art”), run by Anna Ohno to me and when I had a look at their website, I knew I had found what I was looking for!
The Kunstpension is quite a small guesthouse, Anna has only three rooms: White Room (Weißes Zimmer), Green Room (Grünes Zimmer) and Red Room (Rotes Zimmer). Each room looks different. We were lucky that the White Room was still available as it is by far the most creative room. It’s design changes from time to time, at the moment you will find yourself within the installation “Cloud” by Berlin based artist Maria Gideon.
I felt like I’ve stepped into “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” when I entered the room:
The walls, the ceiling, event the floor was painted and decorated. We were roaming the room for a while to find all the little, strange details:
This ear for example, sticking on the wall and maybe listening to everything you’re saying…
There were a lot of collages, too:
But I have to admit, I liked the little paper boats the most:
Anna Ohnos Kunstpension is located in the West of Stuttgart, close to the station “Schwabstraße”. The prices start at 39 Euro, depending how long you stay and if you want a single or a double room. Breakfast comes for an extra of 6 Euro. But you are welcome to bring your own food, a small kitchen is provided:
And the best: Anna is a lovely person and fun to talk to. If you need anything, just ring her door bell, she lives in the same house, just one floor below the guestrooms.
