Time Out says

A serene sanctuary with drool-worthy design details, tucked two blocks off the Grand Canal

Somewhere between bed-and-breakfast and boutique hotel, Number 31 encompasses both a classic Georgian townhouse and a modernist mews. Hiding in plain sight on an unassuming residential street, it’s well-removed from city din. The understated entrance opens up to a grand lounge complete with leather sofas, modern artwork, and a roaring fireplace. Like any reputable refuge, there’s a secret garden waiting around back. The hotel’s polished, period-style guestrooms mimic the reception’s mix of traditional and contemporary, featuring lofty ceilings and plush furnishings. There’s no onsite restaurant, but the organic, made-to-order breakfast is enough to keep guests clamouring for a spot in one of the 21 ensuite rooms. The warm hospitality and lavish, laid-back ambiance don’t hurt either.

Time Out tip: Though Number 31 boasts many remarkable elements, an elevator is not one of them. Plus, smaller rooms lack sufficient baggage space, making it best for those that travel light.

Dax: For French bites and fine wine in an elegant basement bar
Eirlooms: For hand-crafted souvenirs and floral arrangements
