10 of the best hotels near the main railway stations in Europe Travel

B Hotel, Barcelona

Elegant and modern, this three-star hotel has a fabulous panoramic terrace, with a bar serving snacks, as well as a long and narrow infinity pool and a view of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya up to the wooded hill of Montjuïc. Room decor is minimal and there is plenty of light from the floor to ceiling windows. There is no restaurant, although there is a chain of coffee shops in the lobby and many restaurants nearby.

Be Manos Hotel, Brussels

A renovated townhouse from the 1920s, this boutique hotel attracts an artistic crowd and is a welcome arrival in the surroundings of the Gare du Midi, which has many chain hotels. The rooms are decorated in black, white, metal, glass and stone – without compromising on comfort – and the restaurant and bar are worth a visit in all respects. It is less than 10 minutes walk from the station but the hotel offers a free shuttle service for guests in a hurry.

Miss Sophie’s Downtown, Prague





Miss Sophies Downtown Hotel in Prague


Next to the park of the railway station nicknamed Sherwood, due to its reputation as a refuge for thieves, this new boutique hotel is part of a small chain (four in Prague, one in Olomouc). The design theme is retro chic – with rooms equipped with custom-made furniture, a series of mirrors, lights and small red curtains – and evokes the atmosphere of a theatrical dressing room. It does not yet have its breakfast bar, but organic tea and cakes on arrival give it a welcoming touch. Miss Sophie is an economic and comfortable stop.

Hotel Hor, Paris

On the one hand its rather peculiar name, this 47-room hotel has a large lounge in the lobby and a garden terrace – and an excellent location just minutes from the Gare du Nord. It is a good value property and comes with a dose of style and also a visual sense of humor. For example, the ironic re-editions of the brutally ugly type of wallpaper, once common in small French hotels, are used as decorative accents in well-lit rooms with oak parquet floors, desks and bathrooms with rain showers. Breakfast is served until noon.

Polonia Palace Hotel, Warsaw





Polonia Palace Hotel, Warsaw


An eight-minute walk from the station, Poland, built in 1913, is full of ancient charm. It is one of the few properties in the capital that survived the Second World War during which it was used as a field hospital by the Polish resistance in the midst of the Warsaw uprising, after a period in which it hosted Nazi officers. It was reopened after a major renovation in 2004.

They love Grand Central, Berlin

Much of the commercial development around the Hauptbahnhof has favored large business hotels, but opposite the Europaplatz entrance to the station there is this medium-sized option with boutique interiors full of fashion portraits and designer furnishings. The Hamburger Bahnhof contemporary art museum and the Natural History Museum are just down the road, and it’s a 20-minute walk to the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag. Rooms have minimal dark brown and white palettes, plenty of natural light, and extra rooms and Nespresso coffee machines in the superior rooms.

Ecomama, Amsterdam





Ecomama Hotel, Amsterdam


Fifteen minutes walk from Centraal Station or five minutes by subway, Ecomama is a 19-room hostel, whose relaxing areas and cheerful staff live giving the place a welcoming and community atmosphere despite the industrial style. Recycled accessories, such as lamps made with cheese graters, reinforce Ecomama’s message of sustainability, as well as timed showers and lighting of motion sensors. Accommodation options range from the 12-bed dormitory “el cheapo” (from € 18), to a superior private double, with private bathroom (from € 99). Have breakfast in the shared kitchen or grab a croissant and coffee for less than € 5 at the bar, The Fix.

Hotel Daniel, Vienna

It is not difficult to locate the Hotel Daniel: just look for the boat that hangs on the roof of the building. The roof also houses beehives and apple trees that provide on-site bakery products, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while vegetables are grown in the hotel garden, where an Airstream trailer has been turned into a bedroom. Other rooms in the main building are peaceful havens with white walls, green tiled bathrooms and, in some rooms, hammocks. Explore the city on an E-vespa or pushbike (rent from € 35 and € 10 per day respectively). An on-site shop also acts as a reception and sells both practical things (forgot your toothbrush?) And nice things. Next to the park of the baroque palace of the Belvedere, it is a 15 minute walk from the train station.

The vegetarian breakfast includes homemade sourdough bread, donuts, cakes and pies, accompanied by fair trade coffee.
