Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Ypma, founder of the Interior Architecture magazine, has put together a sumptuously illustrated book of hotels in France. These are not the usual hotels or hotel chains, however, but instead those that have a special appeal owing to their unique interiors and locations. They include medieval ch teaux, alpine chalets, rural farmhouses, and modern city hotels. Arranged alphabetically by city, the guide offers a brief history as well as a description of each hotel, which is accompanied by photographs, mostly color, of the exterior as well as the interior. Ypma has also included addresses, telephone numbers, and room rates, which range from cheap to very expensive. Not a necessary purchase but certainly an attractive addition to any travel collection, this lush guide will prove most useful for design fanatics planning a truly stylish trip to France. [This is the third book in Thames & Hudson's upscale "Hip Hotels" travel series; also available are Hip Hotels: City and Hip Hotels: Escape. Ed.] George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, P.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most beautifully photographed I've seen in years. Not only did it inspire me to stay in the Villa Gallici when I was in France over the Christmas holidays, but I have spent hours poring over the gorgeous pictures, finding inspiration for the decor of my new house.
One great drawback of the book is that it doesn't include a map of France at the front or back, showing where the hotels are located. (My boyfriend is French, and even he didn't know some of the towns where the hotels are situated.)

I bought this book for my designer husband because of the architecture and interior design of the hotels. He loved it. As the travel planner of the family I found myself reading about the hotels and areas we haven't visited yet, and was inspired to vary our usual French holidays to include some of the hotels in the book. If the rates in the book are fairly accurate, many of the hotels are accessible to most travelers or within reason for a splurge stay. I would have liked more and bigger photos of some places like La Columbe d'Or, but generally the descriptions and photos were interesting as well as attractive. This is not a Fromer's guide or hotel guide but a glimpse of some of the more interesting places to stay in France.

Format: Paperback
What a waste of money!!!! I was sooo exited about receiving this book, and especially because the reviews were so good. But a complete dissapointment. Hardly any pictures. Each hotel has a page or two briefly describing it, with artsy pictures which i hate, cause you only see a close of a stupid door handle, or a side of a table. IT MAKES ME INSANE WHEN PICTURES ARE LIKE THAT. PUT THE WHOLE PICTURE IN FOR HEAVENS SAKE! So if you think this book will show you complete pictures of hotel rooms, and lobbys your mistaken. Dont bother!

Hi. We got the Valentine's Day [money]round trip air fare to Brussels on SAS and were looking for a place to stay in the Champagne region of France. We used this book to find Les Champs des Oiseaux in Troyes, France. Since we were traveling with a 2 year old, I wrote the hotel in advance to find a room where we wouldn't disturb other guests if Luke had jet lag and wanted to play at 2 am. They identified this suite for us (only [money] per night), and it was perfect. We stayed 4 nights and didn't want to leave.
