Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura's Room Mate Pau Hotel - 51c20476058cf-idx130601_hessay01.jpg - 2013-06-19 19:20:23 UTC

Five small hotels caught Interior Design's eye. For mountainside viewing of the aurora borealis, head to the bar lounge at the Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel by Minarc—it's in Iceland! Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura channeled the surrealist spirit of Salvador Dali for the Room Mate Pau Hotel in Barcelona. And a hotel and spa in Monteigas, Portrual, references the oxidized sheet-steel faces of the region's traditional houses (Pedro Brigida Arquitectos painted the buildings at Casa das Penhas Douradas Design Hotel and Spa to match). Meanwhile, nautical stripes, ash built-ins, and distressed-oak floorboards scream on the beach on the Watergate Bay Hotel in the U.K., the work of Household. And don't forget Seifried & Mack's work on Hotel Scholl in Germany, which sports curvaceous furniture, exposed showers, and arresting artwork that's purely contemporary.
