Barcelona casts a spell on everyone. With great food, museums and stunning Guadi architecture, Barcelona is s also the “perfect beach city” where “the party never ends.” A 24-hour metropolis and family-oriented, Barcelona is  easy to travel by public transportation and glorious to awl or cycle. One of the highlights in Barcelona is strolling around the Gothic “barrio”, the city’s oldest and most historical areas. Surrounded by pedestrian streets and alleyways, you´ll be  close to Barcelona´s major attractions and world-class shopping along Portal del Angel and Portaferrissa streets. Staying at the NH Barcelona Centro is a perfect starting point to discover the The Ramblas area, just a few steps away from the hotel and indulge your taste buds at the Boquería marketplace, your sight with urban masterpieces such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.  If it´s nice, why not rent a bike or take the bus to the beach.  If you´d like to see what other NH Hotels are available in Barcelona, there are 25 to choose from.


 “New York in the ’80s.” “London at the height of Britpop.” “Paris in the ’30s.” Berlin today. There are 10 NH Hotels in Berlín but the NH Berlin Mitte is up there on the list of favorites and awarded the 2013 Certificate of Excellence. This superior 4-star  hotel is located right at the heart of Germany’s capital city. You´ll be able to enjoy historical sites such as Potsdamer Platz, Friedrichstrasse and Checkpoint Charlie, which are all very close. This neighborhood is where Berlin started life in the 12th Century, as a small trading post by the river Spree, and, up until the end of WWII, Mitte (which means ‘middle’) was always the center of Berlin’s political, commercial and cultural life. Today, it´s surrounded by boutiques, shops, hip restaurants and bars. If you want to be pampered after your long busy day, NH Berlin Mitte hotel welcomes you to enjoy some down time with a sauna or a steam-bath for free.


The City of a Thousand Spires has become one of Europe’s hippest travel destinations. Architectural gems, with more picture-postcard views than any other, travellers, culture buffs, pleasure seekers and gourmands meet at chic cafés and gothic cathedrals.  Discover Bohemia at its best by staying at the NH Prague, located in the city centre and a walk to the city´s best attractions: Charles Bridge, the Castle and Old Town Square.


Amsterdam is the second “best city” in the world, according to The Economist. It’s small enough to walk or cycle almost anywhere you want, yet is rarely dull. Stunning architecture, romantic y bridges and quiet canals give it village-like charm, yet you’ll also find top-ranking art museums and one of the best orchestras in the world. The NH City Centre Amsterdam is a gateway to this charming, hip and beautiful city. Overlooking the Singel Canal, the hotel is only a very brief walk to the famous floating flower market, the powerfully moving Anne Frank House, the bustling Dam Square and countless streets where to shop and dine. The best way to get to know this beautiful city, bicycles can be rented for invigorating exploration on two wheels. The front desk staff will be happy to help you navigate the city’s attractions. Start off your morning with a delicious breakfast buffet, served next to the Wintergarden and indulge in a world-class meal in the historic settings of the D’Vijff Vlieghen Restaurant, famous for its mastery of New Dutch cuisine.

But Wait! You didn´t see your destination in this list? Don´t worry. Lisbon, Venice, Rome, Salzburg, Vienna, London, Paris…You name it, we have it.
