In the six years since Herbert Ypma invented a new genre of travel publishing with the original Hip Hotels, an astonishing expansion has brought Highly Individual Places into every neighborhood of one of the most vibrant cities in the world: London.
This new Hip Hotels book contains district-by-district coverage, including an introduction to the neighborhood that succinctly sums up its particular atmosphere. There are specially taken photographs of each hotel, accompanied by informative descriptions plus essential information: street and email addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and room rates. A new feature of these city books is the listing, for each hotel, of an "absolutely have-to-see" site of special local interest and a local "must-have lunch or dinner" restaurant.
From London's eclectic Portobello Hotel to the minimalist Hempel, there is a hotel in this book to suit everyone. 300+ color illustrations.
Herbert Ypma is a bestselling author and photographer whose groundbreaking HIP Hotels series inspired an entirely new genre of travel publishing. His many other books include RSVP: Simple Sophistication, Effortless Entertaining and Amazing Places Cost Nothing.
