About us

The word ‘hotel’ does little justice to our unique collection of castles, palaces, villas, monasteries, convents and other ancient treasures. At Historic Hotels of Europe, we handpick dream properties in captivating destinations across the continent, all inspired by millennia of prosperity, charm, intrigue, romance and cultured creativity.

Choose from an eclectic range of more than 400 enticing stays, dotted across 11 incredible countries. You’ll find that each of our hotels provide exceptional standards of hospitality and service, boasting fine dining and the very best in modern luxury while championing Europe’s historical heritage. 

Our aim is to give you that ‘something special’, a genuine, one-of-a-kind experience. It could be living like a lord or lady at a 16th century manor, or a spa-based bliss on a Mediterranean island. You could crave a quaint townhouse among the cobbled paths of an old city, or dream of a grand hotel in the Alpine air. Explore our collections and discover the quirks, drama and fascinating stories behind these luxurious stays, both past and present.
