Travel Intelligence - the ‘best of the best’ hotel & destination travel website, set up by AA Gill and featuring a hand picked collection of boutique hotels and hideaways - has selected three small boutique hotels for less than £100 per night all year round.
The first of these boutique hotels is the Andalucian boutique town house hotel Hotel Escondrijo. Hotel Escondrijo is hidden amongst a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets between white washed houses in the centre of the hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera in Andalucia. There are four individual Moorish style rooms around a traditional open patio and a rooftop terrace with views by day of the coastline and the countryside and by night of the lights of Tangiers. The hotel is close to the beaches of the Costa de la Luz and 45 minutes from Jerez airport. The beautiful Hotel Escondrijo is available from £51 per night
The second of these boutique hotels is one of Madrid's most stylish boutique hotels, the Hotel Mario. Hotel Mario is designed by Angel Verdu, who is one of the most innovative designers to hit Spain's hotel scene. The 54 rooms are minimalist, grey, white and beige. It is run by Mario, who is a philosopher–cum-director who has an extensive and arty DVD library. There is a small cafe which serves breakfast and one of Madrid's most fashionable restaurants, La Viuda Blanca is right next door. The lovely Hotel Mario is available from £71 per night
The third of these beautiful boutique hotels is the exquisite Parisian Hotel Mayet. The Hotel Mayet is very good value for the fashionable 6th arrondisement – the Invalides district. This boutique hotel is tucked away between the rue du Cherche Midi - known for its antique shops and fashion boutiques - and the rue de Sèvres - where you will find the famous Le Bon Marché store. The 23 rooms are brightly coloured and graffiti murals brighten the lobby. Local restaurant recommendations are chalked up on a blackboard next to reception. The Hotel Mayet is available from £74 per night.
All the hotels are bookable via Travel Intelligence.
