We have curated nine wonderful art hotels: some are small and real boutique, others are bigger and more luxurious. What they all have in common is their love for contemporary art. It’s like sleeping in a museum.
Château de la Resle | Montigny-la-Resle
A French Boutique Hotel and design label fully specialised in Dutch design. All the objects are inspired by the art & design collection of its Dutch owners. Crowning a hill in the renowned winemaking region of Burgundy, Château de la Resle has the charm and personality of a well-loved private home. The six elegant rooms and suites are taken care of by Dutchmen Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens, who invite guests to share the French, ivy-wrapped manor house they painstakingly restored. Adding to the feeling of romance and exclusivity is Johan and Pieter’s personal collection of contemporary art and design, which attracts fellow connoisseurs from around the world.

Hotel Lone | Rovinj
Hotel Lone in Rovinj, Istria, Croatia, represents a design-focused synergy of functionality, harmony and elegance. Like a luxury cruise liner nestled on the hillside, the seductive, minimalist curves of Hotel Lone’s design are influenced by the area’s unique natural landscape. Just like in a contemporary art museum, every detail in this hotel will awaken your desire to explore. Installations in the hotel lobby were made by innovative artists: Ivana Franke – “Room for running ghosts“ and Silvio Vujičić – “In the hanging garden no one speaks“.

The Dolder Grand | Zurich
Sir Norman Foster’s hotel “The Dolder Grand”, with its futuristic building high above Zurich, has become a mecca for art lovers. In collaboration with the Galerie Gmurzynska, hotel owner Urs E. Schwarzenbach brought together more than 100 works of art of the highest quality. Some are reserved for house guests on the individual floors to the rooms. The majority, however, are located in the public spaces. Salvador Dalí’s “Femmes métamorphosées”, for example, welcome guests at the entrance to the award-winning “The Restaurant”, and the four paintings “Les Quatre Saisons” by the impressionist Pissarro adorn the Private Dining Room. And Henry Moore’s sculpture “Three-piece reclining figure: Draped” takes its place on the terrace. On the way to the spa, “Le Monde” by Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely can be discovered, and directly above the reception hangs Andy Warhol’s ten-meter-wide and multi-million-euro “Big Retrospective Painting“.
