We’ve seen a large rise in boutique hotels over the past decade. These small luxury abodes are an Instagrammer’s dream.
We take a look at our favourites in Europe.
Hotel At Six
Located in the major design hub of Stockholm, and housed in a former bank, Hotel At Six oozes boutique. It was designed by Universal Design Studio, with major input from Sune Nordgren, an artist and former art curator. The dark tones and natural materials combined with hints of brass, create a clean yet luxurious aesthetic. The hotel is filled with artwork, the mission of Sune Nordgren being, “to redefine the concept of Hotel Art”. This is certainly a boutique hotel and a favourite of ours.
Hotel Providence Paris
This Parisian hotel in Paris’ Eastern District is just the right combination of contemporary and classic French design. Lavish wallpapers are married with vintage furniture in modern hues. An iMac along with a custom-made cocktail bar can be found in every room. We think the fact you can make your own cocktails from the comfort of your room is this hotel’s USP. We can’t forget the view from the rooftop either..
Set in oh so popular Barcelona, Hotel Brummell is a casual boutique hotel. It is set apart through its combination of European & Sri Lankan antiques and modern furniture. The hotel comprises of 20 rooms, a restaurant, sauna and swimming pool. With the addition of free yoga classes and training sessions, it’s a great place for laid-back luxury.
Artist Residence, London
This really is a boutique hotel, comprising of just 10 rooms, a cocktail bar and restaurant. The little gem is aptly located in West London, with eclectic decor but a homely vibe. The location is a big USP as there is the opportunity to go out and explore the local neighbourhoods of Pimlico and Belgravia. Little mews and detailed architecture surround this hotel. The Good Hotel Guide gave it the ‘London Hotel of the Year’ Cesar Award, so that sums it up really!
