Expert Review

Opened in July 2011, this funky design hotel is the work of Brazilian interior designers the Campana brothers, known for their skill in giving new life to discarded materials. Taking the original fixtures from the abandoned Olympic Palace Hotel, built in 1958, they have once again succeeded in recycling ”found objects” to create works of art. The hotel has 79 rooms and suites with wooden floors, sleek jagged mirrors separating the sleeping area from the bathroom, and old chairs recycled into unusual shapes. You also get slippers, bathrobes, electric blinds, a pillow menu, and free Wi-Fi. The all-day bar-restaurant serves a buffet breakfast and creative Mediterranean cuisine prepared from organic produce. There’s also a gym (massage and personal trainer on request) plus a top-floor terrace affording fantastic city views (opening in 2012).
