The 5 best hotels in Europe

In Europe there are thousands upon thousands of accommodations. Just take a look at hotel booking websites like Trivago or Booking to realize that you have no problem spending the night away from home. Of course, sleeping in a seedy hostel is not the same as sleeping in a luxury hotel like the ones I show you in this article.

In my opinion they are the 5 best in Europe, although there are so many spectacular hotels that I will surely be wrong. What they all have in common are the five stars and the great opinions of their clients.

Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten (Hamburg, Germany)

We start in Germany. The Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg is attached to the Alster lake, In the city center. The location is unbeatable, as are its rooms, which lack nothing. There's a spa, a full-fledged fitness club, and a designer restaurant serving South American and Japanese dishes, so the contrast is brutal. Spending a night there with another person can easily cost you 300 euros. In fact, the Alster suite, which is the best room of all, can cost you more than 1,000 euros per night.

Gran Meliá Palacio de los Duques (Madrid, Spain)

He is the Spanish representative of this select list. In Madrid, specifically about 300 meters from the Plaza Real and the cathedral, stands this beautiful hotel located in a 19th century palace. It has a beautiful garden, rooftop pool, terrace with spectacular views of the capital, a Thai-type wellness center and a gym that is open all day. Both the rooms and the suites are spectacular, something that justifies their high price: from 390 euros for two people, being able to reach the prohibitive 3,890 euros of the Red Level Presidential Penthouse Suite.

Kempinski Grand Hotel Des Bains (St. Mortiz, Switzerland)

In Switzerland there are several hotels that you do not easily forget. One of them is in St. Moritz, in a spectacular setting. The Kempinski Grand Hotel Des Bains is on the engadine valley, a beautiful place that is usually snowy. If you want to take refuge from the cold, you can do it in your 2,800 square meter spa, which of course does not lack a heated pool, steam baths, solarium, saunas ... The rooms are huge and most have a balcony or terrace. A pity that the cheapest night for two is around 1,000 euros, while the most expensive, in the Deluxe Suite, exceeds 2,700 euros.

Fendi Private Suites (Rome, Italy)

In the capital of Italy they also understand luxury. There are many amazing hotels, but I would like to highlight above all the Fendi Private Suites, which is located just 500 meters from the famous Piazza di Spagna. The decoration of the hotel is what attracts the most attention. It is noted that they have spared no resources. From what those who have had the opportunity to stay there say, it is an exclusive place where they treat you as such.

Le Bristol Paris (Paris, France)

Next to the Champs Elysées, where all Parisians dream, is Le Bristal Paris, a 5-star hotel with views of the Eiffel Tower and at Montmartre neighborhood who lacks nothing. In fact, it has a rooftop pool and a nice 1,200-square-meter indoor French garden. In addition, you can delight in one of its two restaurants: the Epicure, with three Michelin stars, and the 114 Faubourg, with a Michelin star. The latter is so named because the hotel is located on the famous Faubourg Saint Honoré street, which is full of luxury shops and art galleries.
