Hotels for celebrities: sumptuous sanctuaries of luxury and elegance

Sleeping in the same suites where Madonna, Mariah Carey and Arnold Schwarzenegger slept, eating exquisite meals as George Cloney, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, knowing you are staying in the same hotel that hosted celebrities the likes of Aristotle Onassis, Evita Peron, Maria Callas, Grace Kelly and Gianni Agnelli. Being able to stay in the same hotels as the VIPs is one of the most prestigious luxuries that today's selected clientele wants to be able to afford.
In Italy and in the main European tourist destinations there are many hotels that can boast among their guests people who, in various ways, have made and continue to make the history of cinema, music, and entertainment.

The most prestigious hotels for celebrities in Europe

The Hotel De Crillon in Paris is the gold medallist of our hotel ranking, having hosted the most illustrious and famous people. Fascinated by its fine marbles, antique furniture and sumptuous chandeliers, its suites have housed VIPs such as Madonna, Mariah Carey, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer Lopez. Who knows if any of them have stayed in the Bernstein suite, where guests have access to 245 square meters and a view of the entire city.

The Schlosshotel im Grunewald in Berlin dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and was the residence of one of the closest collaborators of Emperor Wilhelm I, but the imperial official is certainly not the most famous of guest. Janet Jackson outperforms any other illustrious guest of the hotel, who - in addition to choosing this place as her central European buen retiro - has even decided to present one of her albums here.
The St Martins Lane Hotel is a fixed stop for any actor, singer or dancer passing through the English capital. What attracts VIPs is certainly the proximity to the West End theatres but also the combination of classical elements and cutting-edge technological solutions that characterizes its suites. In order not to feel any less, even Paris Hilton, who certainly does not lack the hotels to choose from, has repeatedly preferred to stay there.

With its traditional sail shape, which allows guests a viewpoint directly onto the Mediterranean, the W Barcelona has hosted Eva Mendes and Shakira in its rooms, among others. Both have probably booked the Wow Extreme suite, the hotel's flagship, which offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the Catalan metropolis.

Founded three centuries ago as a post office building of the Habsburg Empire, today the Das Triest is one of the best hotels in Vienna and among its regular guests boasted Heidi Klum and Whitney Houston. With its frescoed ceilings and elegant wooden furnishings, it is definitely the hotel that best represents the traditional Austrian style to famous tourists or not.

While Saint Tropez itself is a popular destination for VIPs and celebrities, the Byblos Hotel is a real magnet for the most renowned celebrities in the international jet set. Its 44 rooms and 47 suites decorated in Provencal style have housed Penelope Cruz, Mick Jagger, David Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen.

Although it was only opened 12 years ago, the Morrison Hotel has already become a landmark for passing stars in Dublin. Attracted by the soft lights and pastel-coloured furnishings, which create the perfect atmosphere for a bit of serenity and relaxation, Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Cristina Aguilera have already stayed here.

Built around an old cinema, which later became a theatre, the Plaza hotel is even considered a historical monument of Belgium. Its majestic staircase, leading to the spacious rooms, has presented before the astonished eyes of Gary Cooper, Brigitte Bardot and Charles Aznavour.

The top selection of Italian hotels for celebrities

If, on the other hand, we classify the Italian hotels most appreciated by VIPs, we must necessarily start from the capital, true home of Italian cinema and entertainment. The hotel that has seen in its records the names of Tom Cruise, George Cloney, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz is Hassler. Located in the heart of the eternal city, at the top of Piazza di Spagna, it has 95 rooms full of antique furnishings and fine mirrors.

All the hotels in Venice have hosted at least one VIP, since the city on the water has always attracted famous people from all over the world, also thanks to the Film Festival. The most sought-after accommodation, however, is the very famous Danieli Hotel, where - among pink marbles, historiated mirrors, gilded columns and Murano chandeliers - VIPs ranging from Gabriele d'Annunzio to Leonardo di Caprio and Angelina Jolie have decided to stay.

After Rome and Venice comes Milan, the capital of fashion and show business. In the centre, next to the train station, one can find the hotel Principe di Savoia, where Aristotle Onassis, Evita Peron, Maria Callas, Grace Kelly, Gianni Agnelli and more recently Micheal Jackson, Madonna and George Clooney stayed in the past.

Capri is now too popular and flocked by tourists, so VIPs prefer to go by boat and set foot on the island just for an aperitif or dinner. To stay, then, now the trendiest island of the Gulf of Naples among celebrities is Ischia, with its hotel Regina Isabella. Built by the publisher and film producer Angelo Rizzoli in the fifties, the hotel has hosted world class celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor, Francis Ford Coppola, Matt Damon, Sting and Oliver Stone.

Today Rimini is not famous for its VIP summers but for the unbridled fun it offers at any price. However, the Grand Hotel Rimini is still that oasis of luxury that Federico Fellini described in 1973 in the film Amarcord. The rooms of the hotel have even hosted Lady Diana, Rita Levi Montalcini and Pedro Almodovar and have never ceased to attract the most important international celebrities.
