In anticipation of my own summer trip this July, I've been finding some inspiring hotels lately, like yesterday's Airstream Penthouse Park
in Cape Town, and now this hotel that a friend of mine keeps raving about: Austin's Hotel St. Cecilia. Named after the patron saint of music and poetry, this boutique hotel is a little bit more...quirky? Eccentric? Artsy? Perhaps the most accurate observation comes from the blogger of Boots in the Oven: "If my great-grand parents had been rockstars, they might have built something like this." Check out a few more photos after the jump of this one-time Victorian B&B...
Based on some of the reviews online, the Hotel St. Cecilia probably isn't for travelers on a tight budget...but most visitors rave about the overall experience and excellent service. Want to check it out yourself? Visit their site, hotececilia.com.
P.S. ....And if anyone in London is renting a flat out in July or recommendations for good short-let apartment sites, please send me an email or share it in the comments!
