With daily temperatures well above 30, one would not think it is the ideal week to go touring around the country. The heat can be tiring. As my fiance says, “We’re Canadians. We can travel in all weather.” I agree. However I think he was referring to colder weather.
I was having a conversation with a friend last week saying there weren’t enough well-appointed, reasonably priced boutique hotels in North America. It seems once you mention boutique, the prices jump to at least $200+. In Europe, it’s not the case. Every country we travel to it is quite easy to find a design forward, reasonably priced hotel that is not going to cost you an arm and a leg to stay in.
Here is a new one I just found: Daniel, in Vienna. I am not staying here as I just learned about it yesterday but I would totally consider it when I return the next trip. (There is a second location in Graz (Daniel Graz), my other favourite design city that I have blogged about here and here).
It’s adorable right? You have nice wooden floors, funky lighting, plants, an in-house bakery, nice looking rooms, iconic design furniture pieces. It looks like you are walking into someone’s really nice vintage chic living room. I wonder why this model has never quite taken off back across the Atlantic?
See you Friday….
