This week's theme: European Capital Sleeps
It may seem like a tall order to make a mark in one of London’s most established neighborhoods—South Kensington is, after all, home to Hyde Park, Harrods, and Royal Albert Hall—but The Ampersand, an Edwardian townhouse hotel (now up to 45% off now), fits in perfectly. The hotel's tasteful mismatch of eclectic patterns and motifs (astronomy, botany, geometry) is inspired by nearby landmarks like the Natural History Museum and the V&A: there are armchairs sporting colorful prints of herons, flora-covered pillowcases, and various objets d’art, while velvet tufted headboards and silk curtains up the luxury factor.
For the ultimate immersion into Copenhagen’s style scene, book yourself into Skt. Petri, a former department store smack in the middle of the Latin Quarter—and some of the city’s best boutiques. Inside, it’s all about looks—with service to match: the lobby reads like a furniture showroom, courtesy of Norwegian design studio Anemone Wolle Våge (the same minds behind Oslo’s The Thief), and attracts an international crowd; upstairs, guest rooms, currently up to 40% off, are just as glam, a heady mix of jewel-tone colors (blues, greens, purples, and golds) and textures with views that improve the higher the floor. Don’t miss the outdoor courtyard in the summer, where a wood-fire oven bakes up sourdough pizzas.
Berlin’s gritty, artistic, urban nature comes to a head at Max Brown Hotel Ku’damm, a 70-room sleep in leafy Charlottenburg with a keen eye for design (up to 40% off now). The look is a mashup between mid-century and industrial-chic, brightened up with mustard-yellow fabrics, tropical wallpaper, and potted plants everywhere. Breakfast at Benedict is stellar (best of all, it’s served all day), as are drinks at the bar, but there’s lots more to explore here, from nearby Kurfürstendamm (one of Berlin’s most famous boulevards) to the Crosley players in your own room, complete with a selection of vinyl for winding down the day.
Hôtel Duette, tucked away in Paris’s 17th, is a simple but stylish find. Sure, you’re a little bit away from the big landmarks—the Louvre, the Tuileries, the Eiffel Tower—but distance makes the heart grow fonder, no? Plus, you’re blissfully far from the tourist crowds, enough to feel like you're living like a true Parisian. In between time in one of its 29 guest rooms (up to 45% off right now) and traditional breakfasts in the café, do as locals do and pop into the market stalls, artisan shops, and galleries lining the Rue de Levis before hopping onto the Metro (you’re close to four major stops) bound for wherever your heart desires.
A multimillion-dollar refresh has given new life to the Principal Edinburgh George Street—Edinburgh’s oldest hotel built in 1881and once the stomping ground for oil tycoons, estate owners, and oligarchs. Don’t think it’s turned back on its roots, though: the five Georgian townhouses it occupies are still visions of elegance, with their cream-and-chocolate color palettes, marble floors, and oversize chandeliers (rooms are up to 46% off this week). Dig into braised ox cheek or smoked salmon at the Printing Press Bar and Kitchen, or opt for something more casual at the Burr and Co. coffee shop, before hitting the shops of George Street just outside.
