Hip Hotels: Budget. Doesn't that sound too good to be true? But true it is. All the ingredients that make a HIP HOTEL - fantasy, originality, style, location - are available at less than astronomical rates, if only you know where to look. No less surprising is that they are truly global in range. Urban or remote, historic or post-industrial, Sunset Boulevard or Australian outback: take your pick. These are hotels created by enthusiasts, and it shows. They include an original canal house on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, a collection of thatched huts overlooking a black-sand beach in Bali, a palace in the heart of the Marrakesh medina, and a vast converted power plant in Hamburg, its massive stilled machinery looming like sculpture over the interiors. Budget or not, style doesn't get more authentic than this. So plunge in and discover for yourself this latest fabulous - and fabulously affordable - collection of HIP HOTELS.

Hip Hotels: Escape

Herbert Ypma
13.27
Escape society: that's been the motivating dream of books from Henry David Thoreau's Walden to Alex Garland's The Beach but in Herbert Ypma's Hip Hotels: Escape it's not just a dream. Interior design expert (and author of Hip Hotels: City) Ypma tracks down photographs and meticulously records over 40 hotels around the world that will, in his opinion, provide a real escape from the pressures of modern life.
Hip Hotels: City

Hip Hotels: City didn't just identify a trend, it led it. This revised edition reflects that, introducing around a dozen stunning new hotels (all of which have opened since first publication) and at least three new city destinations (Delhi, Marrakesh and Tokyo). New hotels include One Aldwych, a superb example of the new contemporary luxury; The Manor, Delhi, an amazing piece of fifties modern architecture originally built as a hunting lodge; Blakes, Amsterdam, Anouska Hempel's latest venture that brings her Asian-inflected minimalism to a superb piece of Golden Age Dutch architecture; and The Establishment in the heart of Sydney, which houses not just a hotel but the city's hottest bar, nightclub, restaurant and sushi bar, taking the hotel-as-destination concept to a whole new level. The book also has a new updated cover and a new contents spread.
 
Hip Hotels: France

France has it all - a rich history, an incredibly varied geography, a gastronomic culture that is unsurpassed, and a tradition of good living that remains blissfully untainted by the stresses of modern life. Hip Hotels: France brings together the most authentically individual of France's hotels in the country's choicest destinations. Choose the futuristic vision of Jean Nouvel or the hearty hospitality of an Alpine farmhouse, a fisherman's but on the South Atlantic coast or the hip modernity of Le Corbusier's Unite d' Habitation in Marseilles, a Mecca for devotees of modernist architecture. Some are established, some are virtually unknown, but every one of these hotels is a unique response to the geography, cuisine and design heritage of its location. So whether you are an adventurer, a gourmet, or a design aficionado - or all of the above - Hip Hotels: France will enable you to plan your itinerary through city, town, coast and countryside. This third volume in the phenomenally successful Hip Hotels series is once more guaranteed to set you dreaming. It has all the slick of City and all the variety of Escape - all in one amazing country.
Hip Hotels: Italy
from amazon.co.uk

Herbert Ypma

'You can have the universe, if I can have Italy.' So said Giuseppe Verdi. It sounds generous, but Verdi knew that Italy is a universe - diverse, beautiful and crammed with the relics of two millennia of civilization. This new volume of HIP HOTELS presents amazing places to stay in destinations the length and breadth of its boot-shaped peninsula and islands. Herbert Ypma has ventured far beyond the familiar rolling hills of Tuscany, the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast, or the Grand Tour destinations of Venice, Florence and Rome, to introduce real discoveries in underexplored regions like Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Le Marche. Many hotels are a complete surprise: ancient sassi cave-dwellings in the eroded rocky landscape of Basilicata, or the trulli of Puglia, centuries-old igloo-like constructions with conical slate roofs. And whether cave, abbey, olive mill, fishing hut or barefoot beachside palazzo, every one of these unique hotels is true to its locale in its architecture, design and gastronomy.

Deciding where to say is one of the most important parts of planning a trip, whether it's a holiday or business. If you're tired of faceless resorts or corporate institutions, however alluring their comforts, then the hotels featured in this guide will come as a revelation, from the insane (The Ice Hotel, Lapland where even the beds are made of ice) to the mildly peculiar (The Rogner-Bad Blumau Hotel, Austria which looks like a primary school project) through to the stunningly beautiful (Perivlas Traditional Houses, Greece, built into the cliffs of Santorini). Each hotel is a one-off and guaranteed to be the highlight of any visit abroad. More than a guide book, "A Place to Stay" is full of anecdotes and is a photographic celebration of some of the world's most desirable homes from home.
Cool Hotels

Unruffled elegance and sophistication are the key elements to "cool hotels". Our sense of luxury and our expectations have become ever more heightened during our hours of leisure. We are aware of our everyday environments and strive to refine our living spaces aided by the relentless pouring of the media. The world is all about creating our own environment. What choice must we exercise when deciding to get away and paying to stay in a showcase for contemporary talent? Hotels are the platforms for professionals to show us how it should really be done and how interiors can be fantastical, mystical, out of this world, grand, minimal, ecological and arty. There is a hotel for every mood, for every interest, for every hobby in every country - all vying to provide us with the ultimate experience. This work is a spotter's guide to the biggest and best. A new kind of tourism has begun. A new directory is born. Whilst in London visit My Hotel, The Hempel, St Martins Lane Hotel and Sanderson Hotel. Cool Hotels covers hotel destinations in: North and South America, Australasia, Europe and Asia. No project is older than 10 years.

Great Escapes

Judith Miller

Location dictates the structure of the book with chapters on Rural Escapes, Waterside Escapes, Mountain Escapes and so on. These retreats range from a steel-decked futuristic super-structure that overlooks the LA skyline, to a quaint ski lodge nestled in the Swiss Alps to a medieval castle in the hills of Sicily. The text, supplied by Judith Miller, is detailed and engaging, providing insight into the inspiration and working plans behind these beautiful homes, though you might be able to live without some of the pseudo-philosophical observations that spring up from time to time. Great Escapes also outlines the extraordinary lengths that some people go to in order to relax. A key example being the architect who has to take a flight from Mexico City, travel for hours by four-wheel drive, ford a river that may or not be impassable depending on weather, then trek through the jungle before arriving at his beach house. How relaxing!

Whether you've always dreamed of a vacation in Africa or never even considered it, take one look through this book and you'll be planning your next five holidays before you know it. Our selection of the most splendid getaway havens nestled throughout the continent is sure to please even the most finicky would-be voyagers. Everything you need to know about each hotel, including pricing, services, contact information, and reading recommendations, is provided alongside opulent interior and exterior photographs. Who minds sleeping under a mosquito net when it's royally draped over your bed in a lush Kenyan open-walled hut fashioned from tree trunks and shielded from the sun by a sumptuous thatched roof? Or how about your very own South African A-frame beachside bungalow fashioned from bamboo stalks? Seeing is believing, for sure, but even with the photos as evidence these places are not to be believed.
Hip Hotels: Ski
from amazon.co.uk

Herbert Ypma
13.27
"Hip Hotels" is all about winter action and sharp style. With ever more people catching on to the thrill and spectacle of the mountains, the choice of ski hotels has become mind-boggling - and overwhelmingly mediocre. In this volume Herbert Ypma, himself an avid skier, proves that there are alternatives to the tired formulae of the typical resort hotel. You can go for a remote lodge in the Canadian Rockies or Wild West authenticity, alpine log cabin or sleek contemporary style.
