Some of the best designer hotels are hidden gems, often found tucked away in various places in Europe thanks to the rich history of the cities. Such is the case with the Qvest Hotel in Cologne, Germany.
The neo-gothic structure is a feast for the eye. The architecture alone is breathtaking, but the owner Michael Kaune gave the interior a modern touch that makes it a truly unique place to stay. He even used some pieces from his own personal collection to outfit it.
What is interesting about the modern decor in the hotel is how beautifully it compliments the neo-gothic architecture, which is still the star of the show. Every design element, color choice, and piece of furniture enhances rather than detracts from the building’s historic features. It certainly has its own personality.
