Dating, names and historical functions

On the 1746 to 1747 Plan only the exterior wall at the corner of Pacha and Eugeniu de Savoya Streets appeares.

In 1752, the house belonged to urban judge Anton Seltmann. It seems that at that time also functioned the tavern and inn “La Trompetist” (“The Trumpeter”), led by a former military trumpeter.

Hotel and restaurant in the nineteenth century.

Rebuilt and superposed at the end of the nineteenth century.
