Palazzo Daniele, Puglia

Nestled in the Italian landscape of sun- drenched of Puglia, the Palazzo Daniele has been a Petrucci family heirloom for over 150-years. However, the historically-resonant palazzo is now re-imagined as a sophisticated suntrap for art-seeking punters.

Conceptualised by Gabriele Salini, Palazzo Daniele binds art, design, history and authenticity. The noble palazzo is a functioning hotel, as well as a contemporary art space hosting artist studios - a fully fledged member of Saslini’s collection of original hotels.

The Hoxton Paris

Venturing outside the familiar stomping ground of London? Find a Shoreditch sibling in France.

Part of the Hoxton Hotel family (with a selective number of digs in Amsterdam, Netherlands, New York and London), The Hoxton Paris is a tasteful clash of mid-century French Art Deco + contemporary refinement.

The building itself, originally belonging to Etienne Rivié, an adviser to Louis XV, is of undisputed French heritage - complete with original spiral staircases and mosaic marble floors.

Nobis Hotel Copenhagen

Part of the fastidious Nobis family tree, the Copenhagen spot is the first design-led resort established outside Nobis’ native shores of Sweden.  

Housed in a historic landmark building, once home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music, the Copenhagen Hotel Nobis is the brainchild of Sigurd Lewerentz & designed by Swedish architects Wingårdhs.

Hosting a clash of textures, from the stark concrete reception desk to the soft leather seating of the lounge chairs, Nobis Copenhagen is very worthy of a night’s kip.

W Amsterdam

Split into two unique buildings, W Amsterdam is a twin set of contemporary finger-on-the-design-pulse hotels.

Across the road from one another, one W half is housed in an erstwhile telephone exchange building from the 1920s. It’s next of kin? A 1906 banking house directly opposite in the street.

With both W’s boasting space, style + impeccably crafted design, this is certainly not a Jekyll + Hyde relationship.
