Nobis Hotel Copenhagen – Scandinavian splendour with a view of Tivoli
The Nobis Hotel Copenhagen is a beautiful contradiction. It’s housed in a palatially grand former music academy building on the corner of one of the city's busiest boulevards, yet is unstuffy and somehow very quiet. It’s decorated in a contemporary fashion, in blacks, greenish-blues and greys, yet somehow it's warm and inviting. It’s a luxury hotel, that ...

Hotel Roemer
I mostly recommend Hotel Roemer for its convenient location, right next to the Vondelpark and only a short walk away from the centre of town. The hotel is located in a quiet residential street, lined with trees and with beautiful examples of late 19th century architecture. For families, it is a suitable base to explore Amsterdam -- either by ...

Splendom Suites
Perfectly located in the Eixaple district of Barcelona is this all encompassing family aparthotel called Splendom Suites. Although the interiors are not the type I'd pick for my home, it still has a homely feel to it, and most importantly was set up by an avid traveler family. Meaning they know how to organise things to ...

Hotel Molitor
Reopened a few years ago as a luxury hotel and spa, Molitor has not always been the same. Yet, regardless of its primary function, this amazing space was, is, and will probably always be a Parisian institution. First opened in 1929, the avant-garde Molitor was Paris' most famous swimming pool for 60 years, turning into ...

Casa Mathilda, a charming bed & breakfast
Only a ten minute walk from Gaudis Casa Batlló, and a 15-minute walk from La Sagrada Familia, finding this little bed & breakfast has been such a fantastic surprise. Having only 14 rooms, Casa Mathilda has a modern but rustic spaces whist still keeping the catalan architectural roots, and many of the original features, like ...

‘Comfort Zones’ is an anthology of essays written by a pool of women writers who were invited to think about their usual ‘comfort’ subject matter and then work against it. This ‘tackling of unfamiliar grounds’ results in a compelling read — according to @vanessa_wild_flours a ‘dip in and out of’ kind of book which sounds like the perfect holiday read to us!
