    La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa
    Paris
    #1 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 394 reviewsTripAdvisor (394)
    Free WiFi

    The 15 rooms and 25 suites at La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa are chicly decorated in a 19th-century Parisian style that includes brocade taffeta, velvet drapes, herringbone oak parquet floors, antique furniture and bathrooms made with both Carrara and Turquin marble. Modern amenities, such as interactive tablets that control each room's lighting, TV and temperature, and buttons that summon private butlers, are also provided in all spaces. If you desire Eiffel Tower views and extra perks like a balcony, two private bars and a wine cellar, consider upgrading to the Grand Palais Suite. Recent guests were floored by the personalized service offered throughout the hotel, stating that every staff member seemed ready and willing to go above and beyond to make their stays enjoyable. The two-starred Michelin restaurant, Le Gabriel, also received high praise from past diners for its seasonal French cuisine. Just be sure to make a reservation in advance since tables here fill up quickly. And Leaders Club members are in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades. The hotel's central address in Paris near the famed Champs-Élysées' high-end shops was another highlight for previous visitors.

    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. 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 free breakfast and access to bicycles to tour around Copenhagen. Accommodations range in size from the smaller 130-square-foot Coupé rooms (inspired by luxury train cabins and excellent for solo travelers) to the more spacious 667-square-foot Sanders apartment (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 (old town Copenhagen), near plenty of eateries.

    Hotel Eden
    Rome
    #3 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 212 reviewsTripAdvisor (212)
    Free WiFi

    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 thanks to its 17-month renovation, which was finished in 2017. 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.

    Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel
    Paris
    #4 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 246 reviewsTripAdvisor (246)
    Free WiFi

    Reopening in July 2017 after undergoing an extensive four-year renovation, the 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 "fairytale." But this Rosewood outpost's elegant interior is not its only standout feature. Many previous lodgers appreciated the hotel's "fabulous" 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 concocted by acclaimed chef Christopher Hache, 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 Hotel
    Positano
    #5 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1108 reviewsTripAdvisor (1108)
    Free WiFi

    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 either a balcony or terrace. 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, gym and 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 property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Ballyfin Demesne
    Ballyfin
    #6 in Best Hotels in Europe
    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 and reopened in 2011 as a hotel after years of restoration. 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 are filled with period furniture, antiques, complimentary soft drink minibars, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access, Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary laundry services. For a truly memorable stay, reserve the Sir Christopher Coote suite which features 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 guests said the experience was more than worth it.

    Hôtel Plaza Athénée
    Paris
    #7 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 838 reviewsTripAdvisor (838)
    Free WiFi

    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 has 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, Champs-Élysées and the Louvre. And though 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.

    The Peninsula Paris
    Paris
    #8 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 971 reviewsTripAdvisor (971)
    Free WiFi

    If you're after quintessential Parisian digs with modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, 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 LED touch-screen wall panels 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 the city. 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.

    Free WiFi

    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. Once inside, you'll find 18th-century decor, warm hospitality and comfortable accommodations. Though some travelers note guest rooms and suites are a little outdated compared to other high-end properties, most praise the 244 accommodations for being clean and spacious. For views of iconic attractions like the Eiffel Tower and the Palais Garnier, consider upgrading to one of the hotel's suites. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, espresso machines and minibars. Before you head off-site to explore Paris, grab a bite in one of the property's three restaurants; all three eateries have recieved Michelin stars and earn rave reviews from diners. If you can only make time for one venue, book a dinner reservation well in advance at the three Michelin-starred Le Cinq, where contemporary French dishes are served.

    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. Not only does the hotel offer 24-hour room service, it also provides personal butlers (in fact, there are two staff members for every guest). Beyond its staff, the hotel wows guests with its stunning interiors. The lobby's rich wood paneled walls and black-and-white tiled floors create an air of sophistication that carries into its equally stylish rooms, which feature marble bathrooms, feather bedding and deluxe Penhaligon's toiletries. And if you find yourself feeling peckish during your stay, you'll have a host of complimentary treats at your fingertips, including ice cream, afternoon tea and the "plunder the pantry" selection of bites, offered from 8:30 p.m. till 1 a.m. If you've indulged a bit too much or just need a gym partner, you can take advantage of the hotel's unique Sports Buddies program, which pairs up staff members with guests looking to exercise during their vacation.

    Belmond Hotel Caruso

    #13 in Best Hotels in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 872 reviewsTripAdvisor (872)
    Free WiFi

    Perched on cliffs above the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso is housed in a former 11th-century castle. Ancient walls and frescoed ceilings remain, now married with modern amenities like an infinity-edge swimming pool (one of the world's most beautiful), iPods preloaded with your favorite songs, an air-conditioned fitness center, a shopping boutique and various kids activities. A spa with an extensive menu of treatments is also available on-site. All rooms and suites include marble bathrooms, Wi-Fi and writing desks, and almost all accommodations offer private gardens or balconies or terraces with city or Mediterranean Sea views. When you're hungry, visitors recommend dining at Belvedere Restaurant for traditional Italian cuisine or savoring pizzas and salads at the poolside restaurant and bar. (Some caution, though, that meals at the on-site dining venues are expensive.) The real standout here – that is, aside from the panoramic vistas and the complimentary boat tours – is the impeccable service; recent guests gushed about everyone from the helpful concierge desk and warm reception staff to the bartenders that remembered personalized drink orders.

    Ashford Castle, which was originally built in 1228 and reopened in April 2015 after undergoing a two-year renovation, is located in Cong, Ireland (roughly 25 miles northwest of Galway). 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. Rooms and suites are all lavishly decorated with touches like fresh flowers, monogrammed bed linens and custom carpets. Digs are also decked out with more modern perks, including flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, electronic blinds and USB chargers. There are also three on-site restaurants for foodies to explore. The George V Dining Room provides upscale meals in an elegant dining room, and Cullen's at the Cottage serves local and international fare seasonally. Alternatively, guests can dig into Irish cuisine in The Dungeon, which features a curved stone ceiling and period-inspired decorations.

    Located in the heart of Rome's fashion district, J.K. Place Roma is filled with designer furniture, rugs and lighting by Michele Bönan. Notable artwork hangs from the walls and royal blue velvet sofas complement the ultramodern yet elegant vibe. The hotel has 30 rooms and suites, the most basic of which feature LED TVs, gilded mirrors, free Wi-Fi access, complimentary minibars and balconies with Eternal City views. Master Rooms include hardwood floors, rosewood canopy beds, Italian marble bathrooms and walk-in closets. Nestled on top of the hotel is the J.K.Cafe, a venue that houses a lounge, bar and restaurant. Recent visitors said the bountiful breakfast served inside is a treat, and many diners appreciated that the chefs had options to satisfy vegan and gluten-free diets as well. The Italian restaurant is also open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Another highlight worth noting is the personalized service; past guests said they had never stayed at a hotel with such friendly helpful staff members. The one downside to this property is the steep cost, though travelers point out that prior stays here were more than worth the price and recommend saving up to splurge on a suite. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.
