The Street

Rua Dom Pedro V, Lisbon

The journey to Rua Dom Pedro V is one of the most dramatic in Europe. Catch the yellow and white Elevador da Glória Carris funicular from Restauradores up to the Bairro Alto, turning on your heels at the top to take in the vista of the city centre. Rua Dom Pedro V runs upwards to the right, skirting between the Bairro Alto and Principe Real districts

Drury Street, Dublin

Drury Street is the focus of the new Dublin – the Dublin that is no longer into conspicuous consumption and fiscal folly – as it was in days of the Celtic Tiger, but the Dublin that is compact, creative and craftsman-like. These days, this narrow city thoroughfare is considered the heart of the new ‘Creative Quarter’. There isn’t a single chain or department store on Drury Street

Wasl Square, Dubai

Wasl Square, in Dubai’s Al Safa district, beside the beachside neighbourhood of Jumeirah, is both a highly sought after collection of modern apartments and a haven for shoppers and foodies. The small but diverse community, adjacent to the sprawling garden oasis of Safa Park, hosts an eclectic collection of independent shops, restaurants and cafés. Entire days can easily be lost strolling the grounds

Newbury Street, Boston

Just one-mile long, downtown Boston’s iconic Newbury Street is a quintessential New England blend of upscale shopping and single-family brownstones. But it wasn’t always so. Many of the neighbourhood’s historic landmarks date back more than a century, when the Back Bay district was still an actual bay of water between Boston and Cambridge. Several prominent 19th century architects developed the filled land district in the former colonial capital with a vision to create Parisian-style avenues

Berwick Street, London

If you are in central London and you find yourself trapped amid the chain stores and foot traffic of Oxford Street, take a turn west and escape on to Berwick Street, which, extending deep into the heart of the West End’s infamous Soho neighbourhood, will give you a much more authentic taste of what London is all about. The street’s history can be traced back to the 18th century

Red October Factory, Moscow

“Krasny Oktyabr”, as it’s called by locals, is a 4.72-hectare mixed-use complex located on the westernmost part of Bolotny Island, not far from the Kremlin. Plans to convert the 19th Century complex into residences were stymied in the face of a faltering economy, but it wasn’t long before the creative community moved in to transform the area into one of Moscow’s coolest neighbourhoods

Northern Quarter, Manchester

Manchester’s Northern Quarter didn’t exist as a distinct neighbourhood until the late 20th century. Its red brick buildings and warehouses are reminders of Manchester’s 19th century heyday when it was at the centre of the global cotton and textile trade, but the neighbourhood is a product of 1990s urban regeneration, much like London’s Shoreditch and Hoxton, which both underwent similar “gentrification"

Room 2102, Raffles, Istanbul

Raffles Istanbul has only been open for a few months, but, is set to become one of Istanbul’s iconic hotels. It asserts its class with Arola, a modern Catalan restaurant by Michelin-star chef Sergi Arola; Writers Bar, a cosy niche; the larger and busier Long Bar; Rocca, the all-day-dining restaurant; the rooftop Pool Bar & Grill; and the magnificent Raffles Spa

Room 518, The Savoy, London

The Savoy was Britain’s first luxury hotel, built 125 years ago by the famous English impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte. The great and the good made it their hotel of choice, and former guests include George Gershwin, The Beatles and Winston Churchill. Dubbed ‘London’s most famous hotel’, the grand old place has lost none of its charm.

The Boudoir, Collector's Villa, Iniala Beach House, Phuket

Iniala Beach House, the brainchild of wealthy philanthropist Mark Weingard, is located on Natai beach on the Andaman Sea, and it is undeniably impressive. Boasting three villas – each featuring three rooms, all by different designers – and a large penthouse, courtesy of British designer Graham Lamb, Iniala also comprises a pop art-inspired gym and a two-storey building with a children’s hotel

Room 44, The Dude, Berlin

The Dude is as cool as its name suggests, but the boutique property eschews the hipster shabiness to be found in trendy neighbourhoods such as Kreutzberg, instead opting for classic style. Located in the central Mitte district, a short distance from landmarks such as Alexanderplatz and The Fernsehturm television tower, the hotel is housed in an attractive 30-room property built in 1822

Room 25-133, MGM Grand, Las Vegas

The MGM Grand is one of Las Vegas’ most iconic properties, and after an impressive US$160 million remodelling of its rooms, now is the time to visit. The Grand King Premier View isn’t ‘luxurious’, and it doesn’t pretend to be, instead choosing to simplify the stay and nail down the basics, such as an easy to navigate television system on a centre-piece flat-screen.

Vettriano Suite, Hotel Du Vin, Glasgow

Originally opened in One Devonshire Gardens, the 49-room boutique property now occupies a terrace of five listed Victorian buildings – and it is warm, elegant and welcoming throughout, whether you’re enjoying a dram of welcome scotch in front of the fire in the comfortable reception area, a superb cocktail in the bar, a first-class meal in the Bistro or just relaxing in your suite

Room 220, Ham Yard Hotel, London

Ham Yard Hotel seems to have appeared out of nowhere, revitalising a forgotten space between Great Windmill Street and Denman Street in the heart of Soho. Presiding over a tree-filled courtyard, Ham Yard Village, the 91-room property, with its long cocktail bar, restaurant and outdoor seating, comes alive post-6pm. It boasts a gym, an original 1950s bowling alley, a theatre, a spa and a drawing room-library

Room 240, Chester Grosvenor, Chester

The historic city of Chester, in the North West of England, can trace its roots back to Roman times, so it’s no surprise to find that Chester Grosvenor also has an illustrious past. Completed in 1863 for Richard Grosvenor, the 2nd Marquess Of Westminster, the hotel occupies a historic location on Eastgate, in the centre of Chester, within the city’s ancient walls
