Compartir |

When booking a member of Design Hotels you can count on a unique experience and striking design. But what if the views from the hotel were an equal feast for the eyes? Design Hotels introduces five of the best.

From iconic views of Paris reminiscent of a chic film location at the La Réserve Paris to more unusual vistas of exotic animals seen from Berlin’s Das Stue, this selection of hotels are known for causing spontaneous WOWs! For those in search of the ultimate calm instilling panorama, La Réserve Ramatuelle overlooking the Mediterranean or The Dolder Grand in Zurich offers the opportunity to recharge in utter luxury. Others on the hunt for something more exhilarating need look no further than the roof terrace of the B.O.G Hotel in Bogotá to take in the soaring modern architecture of the Colombian capital.

Das Stue, Berlin

It may strike you as unusual to see ostriches, gazelles and wild ponies from your central city hotel room, but in keeping with Berlin’s alternative reputation, the view from Das Stue offers just that. Located in the peaceful neighborhood of Tiergarten Park, Das Stue’s 80 rooms and suites offer undisturbed views of Europe’s most visited zoo, the tree-lined park and Berlin’s western skyline. This vista, seen from the hotel’s balconies and terraces represents the true Berlin – a coming together of old and new, of modern architecture with timeless monuments such as the golden victory column which shimmers as a beacon in the distance.

B.O.G Hotel, Bogotá

Located in Colombia’s capital, Bogotá, the perspectives from B.O.G Hotel’s 55 rooms and roof terrace offer a world of contrasts. Century-old plazas and churches are nestled alongside towering glass skyscrapers while the city’s shiny shopping malls are offset by verdant mountains on the horizon. Bogotá’s cultural history sidles up aside an emerging financial prowess and a sensational nightlife. This makes for a fascinating metropolis and prime location to watch the world go by. The hotel’s heated roof terrace and pool with world class cocktail mixologists provides the perfect place to enjoy the view of a city tipped as Latin America’s urban highlight.

La Réserve Ramatuelle, Côte d’Azur

Perched on a quiet hill overlooking the Mediterranean, La Réserve Ramatuelle’s 19 suites, nine bedrooms and 12 villas, provide the ultimate location of natural beauty for escapism. Tucked away from the lights and showy drama of nearby St. Tropez, the hotel offers an idyllic place to clear your mind. Overlooking the vast expanse of blue on blue it is easy to get lost in an almost ethereal experience. Priding themselves on their spectacular spa and health conscious dining, La Réserve Ramatuelle is the most idyllic place to recharge in what is a truly breathtaking location.

La Réserve Paris

Located in the Art Deco Place du Trocadero, La Réserve offers the ultimate Paris experience. Dripping in decadence and 1930s elegance with a jaw-dropping view to match, prepare to be swept up in what feels like your own movie. Residing in one of the 10 luxury apartments, you can marvel at this famously romantic city and with stunning views of The Eiffel Tower there is little need to leave the comfort of your own balcony to see the sights. A short distance from the hotel are also a collection of high end shops and restaurants to top off a paradaisical stay.

The Dolder Grand, Zurich

The panoramic vista from The Dolder Grand will satisfy even the most ravenous appetite for views. From rolling wooded hills and fresh Alpine mountains to thriving Zurich and its majestic lake, this view encompasses it all. Whether guests are looking to relax in one of the hotel’s 173 rooms and suites, fine dine on the balcony or experience something altogether more invigorating in the outdoor whirlpool, this really is a fairy tale setting. The hotel itself, a 19th century, historic building rejuvenated by Lord Norman Foster and complimented by two modern wings with glass facades is the perfect accessory to this pristine landscape; a true vision of European elegance.
