From Paris to London, from Venice to Frankfurt, here is a list of beautiful luxury hotels you can add to your list this winter.
RELAIS CHRISTINE, PARIS
The vast mansion which now houses the Relais Christine was built on the remains of the Abbey of the Grands-Augustins, founded in 1231.
This delightful and discreetly luxurious boutique hotel has managed to preserve the intimacy of the private residence it once was.
Its comfortable and welcoming 48 rooms and suites, the quiet atmosphere of its lounge, the charm of the spa, its private flowered garden and its personalised service make it a restful and friendly place to stay, worthy of the best Parisian addresses.
The Relais Christine enjoys one of the best locations in Paris, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, left bank, a few steps from the Latin Quarter. Conveniently located just off the Seine, in the very quiet Rue Christine, the hotel is within a 2 minutes walk from numerous restaurants, bistros and cafés, from the famous art galleries of rues Mazarine and Dauphine as well as from the prestigious boutiques of Boulevard Saint-Germain. Notre-Dame, the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée du Louvre, the Conciergerie or La Monnaie de Paris are all at a few minutes walk.
Rates start from EUR 360 in December.
BAGLIONI HOTEL LUNA, VENICE
The Baglioni Hotel Luna is ideal for an intense experience of Venice with its historical and artistic sights: it is in the heart of the ancient republic overlooking San Giorgio Island and the San Marco Basin. The intimate atmosphere of this centuries-old aristocratic palazzo that is home to this amazing hotel and its unique views make guests from all over the world fall in love with it every time they stay.
You can book one of the 104 rooms and suites of Baglioni Hotel Luna starting from EUR 309 this December.
VILLA KENNEDY, FRANKFURT
Once a grand family home, Villa Kennedy is now the embodiment of a modern Frankfurt. Built in 1901, the hotel was renamed in honour of President John F Kennedy’s visit in 1963. It has been extensively restored but still retains its family feel. The hotel’s tranquil Villa Garden in the centre is ideal for alfresco dinner and drinks in the warmer months.
