Hotel Das Tyrol, Vienna, Austria
Following an extensive refurbishment, the 30-room Hotel Das Tyrol is an elegant hotel that puts you at the heart of the action in Vienna.

Il Salviatino, Florence, Italy
Tucked away in the rolling Tuscan countryside is where you will find the 44-room Il Salviatino. Boasting 12.5 acres of private parkland, this beautifully restored 15th-century villa sits on the site of a 1st-century Roman fortress, and is a quintessential piece of Renaissance splendour turned elegant boutique hotel. Each of the rooms and suites are unique masterpieces, brimming with authentic, artisan character and original artworks – including marble fireplaces and 19th century frescoes.
Hotel De’ Ricci, Rome, Italy
With a style that recalls the dolce vita heyday of the 1940s, the eight-room Hotel De’ Ricci is a place where you can sip a Negroni on a velvet chair in the softly-lit Charade Bar. And when you want to explore, the enchanting Regola Rione quarter is right at your doorstep. Each of its suites boasts a luxurious king size bed, with parquet floors and Italianate frescoes adding sophisticated touches. The hotel’s vintage theme is continued in ’40s-style furniture, black bathroom tiles and retro sinks. Some rooms come with a balcony and all of them have a surprise – a small private wine cellar.
