The well-known magazine Monocle has launched its new travel guide "The Monocle Guide to Hotels, Inns and Hideaways". As the only hotel in Norway, Villa Terminus is included and recommended in the guide, along with 99 other accommodations around the world.
It’s designed to feel distinctly domestic, with bookshelves that aren’t just for looks, unfussy furniture and lighting, plus spaces created to prompt conversations and encourage interaction among the guests.
The magazine say that the guide is for everyone from vacation planners to hotel owners. They have traveled around the world talking with managers and owners of the best and largest hotel groups. They make clear that this is not a "stuffy five star" guide; "Our selection errs on the side of the honest, charming, quirky and independent."
This is a handbook for anyone from holidaymakers to hoteliers. We jump up and down on a few choice beds, check out the start-ups breaking new ground and talk to the CEOs of the best and biggest groups. Don’t expect stuffy five-star finery – our selection errs on the side of the honest, charming, quirky and independent. Through interviews, in-depth reports, essays, insight and opinion, we explore the state of the hospitality industry and make a case for why hotels are resolutely here to stay.
