This is evident from the annual Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards, which will have its 33rd edition this year.
It is striking that the nine hotels chosen as best hotels in Northern Europe are all located in Amsterdam. At number 25 we find hotel Okura (tip: sushi there!), At 24 the Andaz hotel Amsterdam, 22 the Pullitzer hotel, at 15 NH Amsterdam Barbizon Palace, at place 11 Sofitel The Grand Amsterdam, at 7 the Conservatorium Hotel (tip: the spa!) and at number 6 NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky.
In the top 5 we also find no less than two Dutch hotels: at 4th place Kimpton De Witt Hotel and at number 3 The Dylan.
The best hotel in Europe? That’s Skt. Petri in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The voices provided even more interesting insights into the hotel world: the best hotel in the world can be found in Zurich, Switzerland, namely Baur au Lac. The best city to visit (ever again) is Kyoto, Japan. Italy has been voted the best country, the best island in the world is Cape Breton Island in Canada. For the best spa experience we have to go to the Himalayas: the Ananda.
Our bucket list has been supplemented again. Let’s hope we can go again soon!
