CHIC RETREATS CITY COLLECTION

Our collection of city boutique hotels is as diverse as the worldwide selection of cities to which they belong. We all know where you stay is as important as where you go and with the perfect blend of style, service and history, you are sure to find an urban chic boutique hotel for your luxury break, romantic city weekend of cultural tour.

Book into the fashion forward Soho House New York in the Meatpacking district of Manhattan and you can enjoy views of the city from its fabulous rooftop pool and shops right on your doorstep. Or check into the A’Jia Hotel in Istanbul to enjoy a regal weekend in an Ottoman mansion. Overlooking the Bosphorus in a relaxing part of town (30 minutes from the city centre), A’Jia Hotel has its own boat which can take guests on private tours of Istanbul. Other cities by the water include Barcelona in Spain, where you can stay at the family-owned boutique hotel Primero Primera in the Tres Torres district (a handy location for business as well as fun weekends away) to explore the nearby beaches, shops, museums and art galleries.

In Lisbon, Portugal, our selection of city boutique hotels includes Palacio Belmonte, the oldest building of its kind in the city, residence of the Earls of Belmonte for over 500 years and, for a great alternative to a hotel, we offer the Mercador Luxury Apartments, a series of 3 apartments in the Palácio do Mercador in a building that dates back to 1565. Wherever you stay, be sure to take a ride on one of the city’s distinctive wooden yellow trams which starts at the foot of the Barrio Alto district and passes through the shopping area of Baixa before finishing in Alfama, where you can visit the ancient Castelo Sao Jorge and there are excellent views across the city.

Our collection of boutique city hotels in Italy features all the classics - Florence, Venice and Rome - as well as places such as Palermo and Taormina in Sicily. In Venice, the Bauer Palladio Hotel and Spa is a former 18th-century convent on Giudecca Island with stunning views across to St. Marks Basilica while hip hotel Ca Maria Adele is very close to St. Marks Square itself and perfectly located to visit the world-famous galleries and museums, take a gondola ride on the canals and explore the atmospheric, tucked-away back streets.

Marrakech in Morocco and Amsterdam in the Netherlands are also examples of much-visited cities where we have personally selected an excellent collection of boutique hotels. Riad Joya is a luxury hideaway in the Marrakech Medina (perfect for shopping in the souks) and the Canal House in Amsterdam is in the cultural heart of the city. We also have a vast range of boutiques hotels across the UK from Bath and Bristol to Edinburgh, London and Brighton.
