Hôtel Bienvenue, Paris
With Chloé Nègre, known for her colourful but elegant interiors, designing the space, this boutique hotel is all charm and warmth. Resting off a small side street in South Pigalle, this is a  Parisian wonder for its location and visitor-friendly rates. The rooms, while cosy, are designed with an abundance of natural light, making it all light and airy. Done in a modern pastel shade, with a plant filled courtyard, Hotel Bienvenue is the backdrop for endless leisurely evenings in the city of romance.

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, New York
Nothing says New York more than the location of our next boutique hotel. Set at the base of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, 1 Hotel is where industrial design meets chic with exposed pipes, distressed wood, plenty of indoor green and natural light. Home to Osprey, a farm-to-table restaurant and a rooftop pool with stunning views, this is a one stop destination that’s cool and comforting.

Hotel De’ Ricci, Rome
This upscale boutique hotel is a 12-minute walk from the ancient Pantheon temple, and is surrounded by galleries and shops. Perfect if you love your holiday tipple, here the staff double as sommeliers and your rooms come equipped with stocked cellars! Swanky with secluded booths, low lighting, and draped curtains, you’re spoilt with the choice of staying in or painting the town red.
