 J.K.Place Roma
No one does it better than J.K. Place whether you’re in Florence, Paris, Rome or Capri. Small and perfectly formed, the philosophy at all of them is to feel at home as soon as you arrive. J.K.Place Roma is immersed in local life (there is a daily market just outside), and is a short walk from the Spanish Steps in an authentic, bustling neighbourhood. The 30 rooms and suites all have massive beds with the J.K. Place bespoke bedlinen as well as Carrera marble bathrooms and complimentary soft drink mini bars. Signature J.K. cocktails and snacks are served throughout the day at the J.K.Café Bar, a relaxing spot after a day of shopping and exploring in the Eternal City.
Rates from £400 per night. www.jkroma.com
   11 Cadogan Gardens
My favourite hotel in London, 11 Cadogan Gardens boasts one of the best positions tucked behind Sloane Street in the heart of Chelsea. Spread across several buildings, this Relais and Chateaux property has a discreet entrance, with just a flag making its presence known. The rooms aren’t massive, nor are the marble bathrooms, but they are luxurious, perfectly formed and immaculate with an excellent team of staff to match. Hans’ Bar and Grill serves cosmopolitan all- day dining and serves the best scrambled egg brunch in town. It’s easy to miss (though essential not to) as its entrance is hidden amongst the artisanal shops and food suppliers of Pavilion Road.

 The Saint John
It’s no exaggeration to say that AX The Saint John is the finest boutique hotel in Malta’s capital city of Valletta. Once upon a time it was a merchant’s home and shop and now it has been transformed into a 20-room hotel where luxury and style meet high-tech, perfect for the discerning traveller. In the heart of Valletta, this hideaway is in the ideal spot to explore the walled city founded in the 1500s by the Knights of St. John and the first planned city in Europe.
Rates from £142 per night. www.thesaintjohnmalta.com
