T+L Reports: Europe's Hot Hotels

High design doesn't need to be austere, especially at these four European hotels that have just opened their doors. BARCELONA Architect Fernando Amat, the mastermind behind Spain's housewares boutique Vinçon, created the 25-suite Casa Camper (11 Carrer Elisabets; 34/93-342-6280; www.casacamper.com; doubles from $230) for the hippie-chic Spanish shoemaker. Whimsical rooms are fire-engine red and playfully outfitted with beds and hammocks. LONDON Guests can stay in the building where Oscar Wilde and Mick Jagger confronted their legal woes, now the Courthouse Kempinski (19–21 Great Marlborough St.; 800/426-3135 or 44-207/297-5555; www.kempinski.com; doubles from $298). Pass through the salvaged prison gates to sip cocktails at the Bar. PARIS Philippe Starck protégé Christophe Pillet decorated Hotel Sezz (6 Ave. Frémiet; 33-1/56-75-26-26; www.hotelsezz.com; doubles from $363), where bright acid colors pop against textured stone walls and polished hardwood furniture. CYPRUS At the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort (1 Aphrodite Ave.; 800/327-0200 or 35-72/682-9000; www.aphrodite.intercontinental.com; doubles from $335), mosaics and Doric columns set off the modern rooms, which all have private balconies. Tee off on the seaside golf course or soak up the scene at the outdoor spa.
