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


'There are few people more expert than Herbert Ypma. His HIP HOTELS series has raised the bar for hotels as destinations'

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.

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 Inevitably a lot of the information such as prices and contact details are no longer valid , and I think if you really want to know where is hip, you need a source that is less than ten years old.

More on the web 11 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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 hotelliving.com and Tablet are free and have the same photos but much more information. Try them instead.

Ultimate Coffee Table Book 29 May 2002
By Catherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr. Ypma is a gifted photographer and a careful writer - a rare combination. Great selection of hotels. It is the perfect coffee table version of cool new online services such as the great "tablethotels.com"

Hip Book 21 Jan 2003
By B. Yang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
