What exactly is a boutique hotel?

But before we go ahead, here's a very legitimate question that many of you might have - what the hell is a Boutique hotel? Here's a quick overview of what such a hotel is like.

"A boutique hotel is a small hotel which typically has between 10 and 100 rooms in unique settings with upscale accommodations." - Source: Wikipedia

The concept of Boutique hotels started fairly recently in the 1980s, and even more recently in India. These hotels are often furnished with a specific theme, and more often than not each room is also given a name and a unique decor. New York City is the hub of these boutique hotels.

  2. All of these look really charming. I want to be try it. I like the colors of the Waterstones hotel

  3. I really like the concept of boutique hotels, especially when they are small and at unique locations. Out of these ones, I probably prefer number 3, Le Sutra.

  4. I wouldn't mind any of these hotels, well, apart from Urbanpod because of my height, and I prefer a proper room for myself. I guess my final choice would be based more on the location rather than on the room.

  5. When I'm traveling long-term (as I am now), I usually stay in hostels to save on accommodation cost. That said, I would totally stay at these boutique hostels. They'd be worth the splurge!

  6. Plenty of good ideas here, I'd have to say Le Sutra looks fabulous. The UrbanPod is really interesting though and looks to be based on an idea of capsule hotels that you see in some parts of Tokyo, would love to see inside one but think I would be claustrophobic staying in it.

  13. Those pod hotels seem to be gaining popularity for those needing a short and easy place to stay! Le Sutra sounds incredible - I love the way it is described as a museum that people stay at!
