4 New Sexy Hotel Stays Around The World

HAMBURG

If the walls of Sir Nikolai could talk, they would share stories of times gone by in Old Town, trading teas and spices on the city’s waterfront. The former warehouse has since been restored to a fine hotel boasting 94 bright and characterful bedrooms with plush chaise longues, brass drinks trollies, vintage rugs and curated artworks. Within a short-walking distance of the high-tech HafenCity district – and a Subway stop – it also offers easy access to all areas of Hamburg. Rooms from €172 per night. (Katharinenstra?e 29, +49 40 299 966 60; designhotels.com)

BARCELONA

The fifth Room Mate hotel to arrive in the city, Room Mate Gerard maintains the funky decor and energy of its sister sites, including city views from its rooftop pool. Situated in Eixample, next to Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, the hotel offers hearty breakfasts until noon and informative city guides to help you make the most of your trip. Rooms from €150 per night. (Carrer d?Ausi’s March, +34 93 182 8031; room-matehotels.com)

 

TORONTO

If you’re looking for a hotel that quite literally rocks, check out the super-swanky Bisha Hotel – Lenny Kravitz and his design company created interiors for an entire floor. For all its rockstar origins, it’s surprisingly understated – well, if you consider a rooftop restaurant and bar overlooking an infinity pool subtle. Prices on request. (Blue Jays Way, +1 416 551 2800; bisha.com)
