Book Description

17 Sep 2001 HIP Hotels®
Hip Hotels: Budget. Doesn't that sound too good to be true? But true it is. All the ingredients that make a HIP HOTEL - fantasy, originality, style, location - are available at less than astronomical rates, if only you know where to look. No less surprising is that they are truly global in range. Urban or remote, historic or post-industrial, Sunset Boulevard or Australian outback: take your pick. These are hotels created by enthusiasts, and it shows. They include an original canal house on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, a collection of thatched huts overlooking a black-sand beach in Bali, a palace in the heart of the Marrakesh medina, and a vast converted power plant in Hamburg, its massive stilled machinery looming like sculpture over the interiors. Budget or not, style doesn't get more authentic than this. So plunge in and discover for yourself this latest fabulous - and fabulously affordable - collection of HIP HOTELS.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Herbert Ypma's Hip Hotels series has become something of a contemporary classic in travel publishing, and Hip Hotels: Budget, the fourth and latest title, is no exception. The difference is that volumes France, City, and Escape exist, for most of us, simply to be drooled over rather than used on some modern-day equivalent of the Grand Tour; with Budget the concept of a luxurious and unusual hotel room becomes something a little more attainable. Featuring a diverse worldwide collection, Budget has something for everyone. For those who wish to stray off the beaten track, choose from the achingly exquisite Nilaya Hermitage "perched on top of a jungle peak in tropical Goa", the "hidden gem" of Waka Gangga in Bali, or The Prairie Hotel in the "back of beyond" that is the Australian bush (film buffs note: the Kate Winslet and Harvey Keitel picture Holy Smoke was set here). City slickers will enjoy the ultra-cool, minimalist Advokat in Munich, the Art Deco delights of The Albion in Miami, or the funky, themed Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton, the UK's "London-by the Sea". Swamped with 411 enticing colour photographs, Budget is much more than just an aspirational coffee-table book. And if you can persuade someone else to foot the (mostly) affordable bill for your hotel stay, so much the better. --Catherine Taylor

5.0 out of 5 stars chic, cheap and hip: the ultimate 2 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Well, Ypma did it again. No need to be a millionaire to visit a HIP hotel. So many places, the text is rich and colourful, the photographs superb, and the places are just heaven. Let's hope they remain unspoilt. Thank you Ypma, you did it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs updating 31 Oct 2011
The book is well written and I dare say it offers a few decent suggestions, but it is a bit too old to be of much practical use. Inevitably a lot of the information such as prices and contact details are no longer valid , and I think if you really want to know where is hip, you need a source that is less than ten years old.

I bought all of the books in this series but was very disapointed. The photos are good but there is no more information than you can already find on the net.
Sites like and Tablet are free and have the same photos but much more information. Try them instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Book 21 Jan 2003
By B. Yang - Published on
Fun book! Excellent photographs. Reading about the various hotels from around the world and looking at the photos of the decor made me want to pack up my bags and do some traveling!
The photos also gave me some ideas and inspiration on decorating my apartment.
