Top 5 City Breaks

01: Hotel Alfonso XIII, Seville

This magnificent landmark hotel was commissioned by the King of Spain to play host to international dignitaries during the 1929 Exhibition. Framed by palm trees, Hotel Alfonso XIII is a much-loved piece of Seville’s history and culture and is centrally located in the historic quarter of Santa Cruz, next to Reales Alcázares and
Seville Cathedral.

The hotel’s distinguished architecture and Moorish detailing have been enriched, showcasing native Andalusian design which includes arches, pillars and a mosaiced courtyard. Inside, the elegant décor – from the lobby to the inner courtyard – continues to reflect Sevillian style, which blends seamlessly into the outdoor swimming pool and gardens, enticing guests to relax and refresh under the warm Andalusian sun. All rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated in Castilian, Moorish or Andalusian style and furnished with the greatest luxury and comfort. With heritage lamps bearing crowns and regal beds, you could say they are fit for a king or queen.

02: The Westbury Hotel, Dublin

The luxurious Westbury Hotel has it all – fabulous facilities, first-class service and gastronomy worth travelling for, plus a big dose of Irish charm and a dash of the personal touch. The grand hotel is conveniently located in the very centre of Dublin’s main shopping and entertainment district and bursting with fresh flowers, original artwork, luxurious furnishings and opulent chandeliers – it’s a must visit. 

03: Hotel Cipriani, Venice

With sweeping views across the Venetian lagoon, it’s easy to see why royals and A-listers regularly frequent the 96-room Belmond Hotel Cipriani. Surrounded by gardens where Casanova once wooed his lovers, it’s the definition of Italian glamour – especially when approached by speed boat. Guests can count on stellar – and discreet – service at this five-star resort in addition to Michelin-starred dining, an Olympic-sized pool filtered with seawater and stunning grounds.

04: Villa San Michele, Florence

They knew how to choose a location, those monks. This former monastery enjoys some of the most spectacular views in Europe, right across Florence. However, today’s guests, cosseted among lush trees and terraced gardens, enjoy living that is anything but monastic. The bars and restaurants at Villa San Michele capture the very essence of fine Florentine dining.

05: The Ritz, London

The Ritz is London’s most iconic hotel, needing little introduction. A five-star haven that is famous the world over for its historic elegance, impeccable service, impressive suites and of course, the legendary Afternoon Tea.

Visitors can choose from a selection of spacious suites offering a range of elegant bedrooms with adjoining living and dining rooms. When it comes to dining, they’re spoilt for choice with the finest Ritz cuisine and signature cocktails.
