How do you even begin to pick the top hotels in Europe? Impossible, right? But we love a challenge, and began with what we think Time Out readers are looking for – that perfect mix of great design, location and amenities – then factored in less tangible elements such as history, experiences and ambience. So here, in no particular order, are our favourite 13 hotels in Europe. They include timeless classics, like London’s Claridge’s, cool style hotels such as Stockholm’s Ett Hem and Barcelona’s Soho House, fin de siecle beauties like Vienna’s Hotel Sacher and Moscow’s Metropol, and others that focus on wellness, like Austria’s Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof and Portugal’s Six Senses. We feel sure that a stay at any of these will be one of the best hotel experiences you’ll ever have.
