    #1 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 394 reviewsTripAdvisor (394)

    Hotel Sanders
    Copenhagen

    #2 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 44 reviewsTripAdvisor (44)
    Hotel Sanders subscribes to the notion that "a home without a heart is just a house" – and according to recent guests, that mindset shows throughout the boutique property. Past patrons commended the hotel's employees for their excellent service and raved about the coziness of the accommodations. All 54 guest rooms are equipped with complimentary minibars, TVs, robes and slippers, and guests receive complimentary access to bicycles to tour around Copenhagen. Accommodations range in size from the smaller 130-square-foot Single Rooms (inspired by luxury train cabins and excellent for solo travelers) to the more spacious 667-square-foot Sanders Suite (ideal for long-term travelers or those entertaining guests). Common areas include a centrally located courtyard, a living room equipped with a fireplace, a plant-lined rooftop terrace and the intimate TATA cocktail bar. Guests can enjoy meals and snacks in any of these spaces or in the homey Sanders Kitchen, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are prepared. Just note: A few past guests said the service from Sanders Kitchen was very slow. Thankfully, travelers will have no trouble finding dining options outside of the premises if they choose: The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Indre By (Copenhagen's historic city center) near plenty of eateries.

    Since opening its doors in 1889, Hotel Eden has served as a temporary home in central Rome for everyone from foreign aristocrats to renowned celebrities to typical tourists. Recent visitors said that this incredibly luxurious (and expensive) property practically exudes elegance. The hotel's lobby (where the classy La Libreria bar is located) features marble floors, high-end furniture and an abundance of gold accents. Its 98 rooms and suites offer a similarly neutral but sophisticated aesthetic. All of the accommodations include artwork, complimentary Wi-Fi access, Nespresso coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. Plus, butler service is available upon request. Standard bathrooms are covered in marble, mirrors and gold, and guests can expect to find luxury amenities like Italian Bottega Veneta toiletries. After settling into their lodgings, visitors can enjoy gourmet meals and panoramic views at La Terrazza, Hotel Eden's top-floor restaurant. For a more relaxed vibe, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar has both classic Italian fare and healthier menu options. Despite its opulent design, stellar location and high-class restaurants, previous guests were most impressed with Hotel Eden's exceptional employees and service.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 246 reviewsTripAdvisor (246)
    Hôtel de Crillon – which sits by the Place de la Concorde in Paris' 8th arrondissement – impresses visitors with its French neoclassical details (think: Baccarat chandeliers and Coustou sculptures). In fact, one former guest called this historic property a "fairy tale." But this Rosewood outpost's elegant interior is not its only standout feature. Many previous lodgers appreciated the hotel's top-notch service and comfortable accommodations. All 124 guest rooms and suites boast neutral tones and custom artwork, plus high-end touches like butler service, Nespresso coffee machines and beds dressed in Drouault duvets and Rivolta Carmignani linens. Standard rooms overlook the property's courtyard, while signature suites come with up to 3,768 square feet of space and offer breathtaking views of Paris landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Musée d'Orsay. Several recent travelers also heaped praise on the property's dining establishments. L'Ecrin serves modern dishes, and Brasserie d'Aumont features French fare made with locally sourced ingredients. Other amenities available here include a spa, an indoor swimming pool, a barbershop and a bar with more than 100 kinds of Champagne.

    Le Sirenuse
    Positano
    #5 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1108 reviewsTripAdvisor (1108)
    For guests, everything about this Positano hotel is next to perfect. From the Mediterranean decor and out-of-this-world service to a breathtaking location facing the ocean, Le Sirenuse was worth every penny, according to travelers. First and foremost, almost all of the hotel's rooms overlook the ocean and most are equipped with balconies or terraces. All accommodations feature whitewashed walls and are decorated with old-world furniture and colorful accents, including floors adorned with handmade, painted tiles. And for such a seemingly quaint property, the hotel is well-equipped, offering a spa, a gym and a pool to its guests. But the pool is by far one of the hotel's most beautiful attributes. Offering views of the cliffs and adjoining sea, and surrounded by potted plants and lemon trees, the pool features a giant mosaic mural of mermaids. Dining can also be found alongside the pool and other alfresco spots around the hotel, including the Michelin-starred La Sponda. Le Sirenuse can also organize excursions and adventures, some of which are complimentary. Peruse the hotel's daily activity calendar and you will find opportunities for hiking, bay cruises and even a visit to a local limoncello factory. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this Amalfi Coast property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 364 reviewsTripAdvisor (364)
    Ballyfin Demense is a world-renowned hotel, located within a castle-like structure in County Laois, Ireland. It was originally built in the 1820s for Sir Charles Coote. The estate's 614 acres are filled with wildlife, gardens, trails and picnic spots. Guests can participate in activities like tennis, boating, horseback riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, archery and falconry (some require an additional fee). On-site gardens, along with hens and bees, provide numerous ingredients for the restaurants, and other ingredients are locally sourced from nearby farmers and fishermen. The Cellar Bar has an extensive list of local whiskeys, and regular whiskey tastings are available. The 20 individually decorated guest rooms and suites feature period furniture, complimentary soft drink minibars, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access, Egyptian cotton linens and free laundry services. For a truly memorable stay, reserve the Sir Charles Coote suite, which boasts 18th-century Chinese wallpaper panels, a separate sitting room, a fireplace and large windows with views of the grounds and lake. Recent guests described the hotel as excellent, especially raving about the white-glove service, palatial grounds and decor. While a stay here is not cheap, many past guests said the experience was more than worth it.

    #7 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 838 reviewsTripAdvisor (838)
    Hôtel Plaza Athénée is the stuff of Parisian dreams, with chandelier-clad dining rooms, foliage-filled courtyards and elegant rooms, each decorated with crown molding and pops of bright pastels. Although the hotel exudes European charm, its quaint atmosphere doesn't mean amenities are few and far between. The property boasts five restaurants, ranging from chic and casual to downright fine dining, including the Roaring '20s-inspired Le Relais Plaza. The hotel also features a spa and 24-hour concierge service in addition to on-call, chauffeur-driven transportation. But travelers may find that a car simply isn't needed: Hôtel Plaza Athénée's location blocks away from the Seine puts lodgers within a 1-mile radius of the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées and the Louvre. Although the address and amenities left travelers in awe, it was the hotel's incredible service and attentive staff that made the biggest impression. Just note, all of these luxuries equate to sky-high room rates.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 971 reviewsTripAdvisor (971)
    If you're after quintessential Parisian digs with modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, tablets and dual-voltage electrical outlets, consider staying in one of The Peninsula Paris' accommodations. All 200 guest rooms and suites combine traditional details like spacious marble bathrooms and white crown molding with contemporary features like dark wood headboards and chrome light fixtures. Additionally, each space comes with one-of-a-kind amenities like a LED touch-screen wall panel programmed in 11 languages, a nail dryer and a hidden valet box for laundry. But it's not just the hotel's guest rooms and suites that set this property apart. The Peninsula Paris, which is housed within a 19th-century Haussmannian building, is where George Gershwin wrote "An American in Paris" and where the Paris Peace Accords (the treaty that ended the Vietnam War) was signed. Plus, the property sits within walking distance of the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe, and you'll find a metro station less than a block away to get you to other parts of Paris. When you're famished, previous visitors recommend returning to the hotel for Cantonese-style bites at LiLi or traditional Parisian meals with an Eiffel Tower view at L'Oiseau Blanc. However, recent patrons cautioned that the dishes served on-site are pricey.

    The Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris is situated just three blocks south of the famed Champs-Élysées in the western part of the 8ème arrondissement. But the prime location is just one of the property's high points.

No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, espresso machines and minibars. Before you head off-site to explore Paris, grab a bite in one of the property's three restaurants; all have at least one Michelin star and earn rave reviews from diners.

    Those looking for an intimate lodging experience will find it at Hotel 41. This property, located just four blocks from Buckingham Palace, has only 30 rooms, leaving plenty of space for personalized service.

Ancient walls and frescoed ceilings remain, now married with modern amenities like an infinity-edge swimming pool (one of the world's most beautiful), an air-conditioned fitness center, a shopping boutique and various kids activities.

Recent guests said that they felt like royalty during their stays, but they warned that even a few days of living like a king doesn't come cheap. A tourist attraction in its own right, the fully restored Ashford Castle sports an assortment of luxury amenities, including a 32-seat cinema, a state-of-the-art spa and complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the property. Visitors can also enjoy more historically significant activities, which range from exploring the castle's gardens to taking an introductory falconry course.

    Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest
    Budapest
    0.5 miles to city center
    #23 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2863 reviewsTripAdvisor (2863)
    For guests, the location of this Four Seasons is by far one of its greatest assets. Not only does the Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest's address along the banks of the Danube River add an extra dash of romance to the already dreamy city, but it is close to several top attractions, including Hungary's famed Parliament building about a half-mile north. Aside from its unbeatable location, the property receives rave reviews for its service and amenities. Art deco-style rooms offer a subdued elegance as well as plenty of perks including Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and deep-soaking tubs. And the amenities don't stop there. The property features an infinity-edge pool, a spacious exercise facility with on-site personal trainers, ample family offerings, a relaxation area and a brasserie and bar, which serves contemporary European fare. And with 24-hour multilingual concierges, 24-hour room service and 24-hour laundry and dry cleaning services, you may never have to lift a finger in Budapest.

    Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc
    Antibes
    #24 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 487 reviewsTripAdvisor (487)
    This property in Antibes along the French Riviera is described by guests as "exquisite," "world-class" and "legendary." Legendary, indeed – Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has been a known escape for creative types like writers and artists since it first opened in 1870. Its 118 rooms and suites occupy three different parts of the property: the original Villa Soleil, the Eden-Roc Pavilion and Les Deux Fontaines residence. Accommodations are individually decorated, though all boast marble bathrooms and neutral decor complemented by colorful floral or patterned comforters and curtains. Other amenities you'll find include a heated infinity pool, five tennis courts, a fitness center, a spa and yoga classes. And gastronomy here is a cut above the rest: Eden-Roc Restaurant serves up refined Mediterranean specialties on a terrace overlooking the sea, while Eden-Roc Grill offers grilled dishes and lighter fare like sushi and salads. The hotel is also home to its own chocolate atelier, who crafts handmade chocolates, and specialty bars like a juice and ice cream bar and a Champagne lounge. While past guests enjoyed the upscale cuisine options, they do note that meals on-site are expensive. However, all visitors were quick to compliment the property's professional and friendly staff.

    Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria
    Sorrento
    #25 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1628 reviewsTripAdvisor (1628)
    Located along the Gulf of Naples in Sorrento, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is one giant Mediterranean mansion itching to be explored. Nineteenth-century facades, antique furniture and gorgeous frescos can be found left and right. Since opening in the early 19th century, it's played host to numerous famous faces, including Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, in addition to various artists and politicians. Today, the hotel is run by the fifth generation of the family that opened the property and, according to recent guests, the service couldn't be better. Reviewers also raved about the oceanfront location, which can be admired from various points throughout the property, including the accommodations (all rooms feature sea views) and the Michelin-starred restaurant, Terrazza Bosquet. And in the summer, the hotel offers boat rentals that can be taken to nearby Positano or Capri. The hotel is also equipped with numerous services and amenities, including a gym, a spa, a pool and a 5-acre park that is home to gardens, sports courts and a playground. And, believe it or not, the Excelsior even has its own Roman ruins on-site. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here.
