Before flying to Brazil, I attended an event in Florence. The presentation of Christina Aguilera’s new fragrance → “Touch of Seduction”, among other things inspired by Italian velvet, took place at the hotel “Il Salviatino”, a gorgeous luxurious hotel up the hills of Florence. I had the chance to spend one night there and enjoy not only the amazing view from there (you can spot the dome from the hotel’s terrace), but also the sunniest and best weather ever. Of course, I took some pictures to share some impressions with you in my “One Night in…” category – to be honest, I wish I could take a plane right now and stay there again…

Back in Germany, it’s not only time to unpack the suitcases (check!) but also to remember the good times and incredible experiences we had in Rio de Janeiro. The city doesn’t only offer beautiful places but also great food (don’t miss the chance to eat your way through ALL of the fruits, and of course, if you love meat, you have to try a “churrasco”, for example at “Carretão” in Ipanema).
Since I was little, one of my biggest dreams has been to visit the hotel “Copacabana Palace”, THE legend of Rio and the place where all the rich and famous stay. The building is on Avenida Atlântica, the street running along the beach of Copacabana, and is definitely a gem – one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. Of course, I was very curious to see how it looked inside! So as we were on vacation, plus the exchange rate from euros to reais was pretty nice, we took our chance and booked a table at their Asian (actually Pan-Asian) restaurant “Mee”. There’s also a great Italian restaurant at the Copacabana Palace, the “Cipriani”, but as we already had dinner at the FASANO in Ipanema the night before (blog post coming!), we went for this exotic dinner. And we were pretty lucky that night – not only was the dinner extremely good, but we also had some famous company: thanks to “Rock in Rio”, there were some celebrities dining next to us – Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, Tommy Lee, Guns N’ Roses,… (we probably just didn’t recognize the rest of them!). Pretty exciting, huh? :)

I decided to start a new category on the blog which I want to call “One Night in…” – because as a blogger, I get to sleep at beautiful hotels from time to time , but there’s not enough time for a full “review”. Normally, I only get to see my room and sometimes, thanks to the events, a suite or conference room – but not the whole house including its restaurants, spas, etc. So today I want to start with the “Hotel de Rome” in Berlin and share a few impressions with you.
Thanks to Urban Decay, I had the chance to spend one night at this beautiful hotel and enjoy this great room and also have a look at one of their suites, including a great terrace with a beautiful view over Berlin.
