Waking up to a fragrant cup of freshly brewed coffee can make or break a trip, so we’ve asked our travellers for the hotels that know their flat whites from their caffè lattes.*
Hotel Sky in Gramado, Brazil
Hotel Sky in Gramado
The timber-frame structure and pointed roofs of Hotel Sky are an ode to German vernacular architecture, and make it look like a cross between a traditional Alpine chalet and Hogwarts. Inside, guests find that the coffee is just as magical as the exterior, with locally-grown and freshly-ground beans readily available at the onsite restaurant.
citizenM Tower of London in London, UK
citizenM Tower of London in London
The floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and stunning location of citizenM Tower of London will keep even the most intellectually-inclined guests stimulated. And for those guests who require a bit of a kick to get started in the morning, the hotel’s 24/7 canteenM is widely praised, particularly the extra-strong macchiatos.
citizenM Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France
citizenM Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris
Another citizenM hotel on our list means another 24/7 canteenM, although in deference to the odd hours kept by its guests, this one also has a barista permanently on stand-by. Melt-in-the-mouth pain au chocolat, freshly-baked croissants and double-strength cappuccinos make this place definitely worth the trip.
