Venice, where else?

25 Mar

Venice is my favourite place in the world. If I had to choose one place to stay forever, Venice will be the chosen one. Its architecture, its history, its food and its undeniable charm made me fall in love with this city when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve tried to visit Venice at least once a year. The Venice I love, my Venice, is placed in the Castello area. The Venice I love is full of empty tiny streets to enjoy long walks, lively squares to savour a Spritz and a nice conversation, boats that sell the best fruit and nights that are as enigmatic as silent. But there is another Venice: the opulent, decadent, exclusive and even obscene. That Venice surrounds the Gran Canal, that Venice is epitomize by those palazzi where lavish parties have taken place during years. I’ve always been so curious about it, I won’t lie. And this hotel seems the best place to discover it.

So we are thinking about taking a few days off in May/June and prepare a nice trip. But where should we head to? New York is tempting… But we want sun and sea and sand and magazines and books and cocktails. We want a vacation. We need a vacation. Do we finally splurge on an all-inclusive Pacific resort? Well, the thing is that even though I still have to visit lots and lots of places, my heart always tells me to go to Italy. And if you continue reading you will discover a hotel that epitomizes almost everything that holidays in Italy mean to me.

The Admiral hotel, Copenhagen

20 Feb

This hotel is an exception in Copenhagen. No black and white minimal Nordic design. The Admiral hotel, a converted 18th century warehouse, is all about modern rustic comfort. This hotel gets everything right: from the location (a walking distance from the main cultural attractions and shopping areas) to its restaurant, Salt, where the modern Nordic cuisine combines the best traditional Danish products with a huge dose of imagination.

London is one of our favorite destinations when it comes to weekend getaways but finding a nice accommodation can be tricky. We have stayed in really different places: from the überpriced B&B in Paddigton to a huge hotel facing the famous Big Ben. But we finally have found our home in London. I never thought I would say that, but we have found the hotel where we would love to stay from now on every time we visit London. The search is over. Let us introduce you to The Mandeville Hotel.

Every time we visit Madrid we want to make the most of it: see all our friends, go to the theater, chek out the exhibitions and eat in all our favourite restaurants. In order to do that, we try to spend at least a couple of days in the city center. Last Summer we booked a hotel that was not very nice… but this time we made a great choice: the Ada Palace Hotel.

When I saw this picture on Pinnterest a couple of weeks ago I almost cry. That is exactly the place I dream about in Christmas! A wooden chalet with inviting lights in the middle of the mountains. Isn’t it picture perfect?

As you know, we spent las weekend in Copenhagen. Since it was a very last minute decision we didn’t have time to look for a hotel the way we usually do, that is, looking in thousand webs, comparing, reading all the reviews etc. But we were really lucky to find a free room at the Scandic Front.
