1. The Bulgari Hotel, London
Nestled right amongst one of London's most upmarket neighbourhoods, Knightsbridge, the Bulgari Hotel took out the 2013 title for Architecture of the Year: Newbuild Hotel in the European Hotel Design Awards.
It's no wonder, thanks to its beautiful marble and silver finishes and standout features such as the Italian-influenced colonnaded swimming pool. The complex simply exudes style and luxury.
