Forget about the crappy maps and dubious advices from the usual hotel directory folder, these five lifestyle hotels have created exclusive designer city guides and beautiful neighborhood maps, filled with great local tips. Leading the way of what hotels are meant to be: the best insiders of neighborhood life and nightlife.
1 – Amsterdam Oost by Volkshotel, Amsterdam
Volkshotel used to be a newspaper headquarter. The hotel inherited from its former life the culture of paper and ink. So it comes with no surprise that they developed their own neighborhood guide with a beautiful font and vibrant colors loaded with great insider tips.
2 – Berlin Mitte district by Gorki Apartments, Berlin
Surrounded by bars, cafés, restaurants and hip galleries, Mitte is probably one of our favorite districts in Berlin! Gorki’s Apartments‘ minimalist map will help you navigate through the coolness.
3 – La Gazette des Enfants by Hotel Panache, Paris
Hotel Panache teamed up with La Petite Papeterie Française to design this beautifully crafted kid-friendly Gazette of Paris’ sights and the hotel’s secret hideouts.
4 – The Ace Survival Guide by The Ace Hotel, NYC
Ace Hotel NYC designed a full manual for “food, drinks, and other ephemera” that they regularly update to stay on top of whatever is cool in NYC.
5 – Guide des Plaisirs à Paris by Le Pigale, Paris
Every hotel guest of Le Pigalle will find their vintage copy of Le Guide des Plaisirs à Paris inside the nightstand drawer of their room. Basically your gateway to saucy Paris, by day and by night.

7 – Favorite spots : Los Feliz & Silver Lake by Hotel Covell, Los Angeles
With Bar Covell, the popular wine and beer bar situated below the hotel, Hotel Covell is already an institution in trendy Los Feliz & Silver. Like a good team player, the hotel is giving back to the hood with this custom map of all other hotspots in the area.
8 – Get Lost by Mama Shelter L.A, Los Angeles
‘Mama Says Get Lost in Hollywood’ in this funny fold-out map loaded with unconventional spots to visit and funny quotes about L.A. If we had to pick one to set the tone: ‘I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic. But I love plastic. I want to be plastic.’ – Andy Warhol
