If you’re an art enthusiast traveling and exploring the world, you don’t need to drag yourself through long queues and tons of people. Many hoteliers are now bringing fine art collections inside their lobbies. This means you can set your eyes on really awesome artworks with less stress.
Here are nine of the best art hotels you need to include in your list:
XVA Art Hotel, Dubai
The hotel has contemporary and traditional works of art hanging on its walls. There’s also a beautiful on-site store you can buy great souvenirs from.
Dubai has a lot to offer art fans. The Meem Gallery displays work by emerging artists and the Cuadro Gallery houses modern art, peculiar portraits, and thought-provoking installations.
Kimpton Hotel Eventi, New York
Neither Lady Liberty in her gown of green nor the honking yellow taxis of Times Square could possibly fail to get you excited for the kaleidoscope of fun this insomniac city is known for.
A mecca for culture lovers, New York has produced some of the coolest artists we know. Great examples include Koons, Pollock, and Warhol.
At the Hotel Kimpton Eventi, enjoy a beautiful blend of quirky creativity and downright opulence. It’s where the balance between the typical and the unexpected hits the spot.
The Merrion, Dublin

Art nourishment with a side of Earl Grey? Yes, please.
The Dutch capital is so laid back. With cozy beds and artsy inspiration all under one roof, Amsterdam’s art’otel ticks all the must-see boxes of any art fan.
The hotel’s reception gets you in the spirit with huge red sculptural heads, swinging light bulbs, and a shiny black human-esque sculpture that happens to double as a lamp.
The First Roma, Rome
The First Roma Hotel features Italian art and it can take you several days to explore all of Rome’s artistic offerings. At the First Roma, you can leap straight from your hot tub into a watercolor workshop or a talk on Dadaism. Those can sound like holiday gold to any art enthusiast.
Based in a posh neighborhood of Kenya’s lively capital, the Sankara’s tasteful decor and art collection sets it way ahead of other art hotels.
