Luxury and innovation is a must but history plays its part too. The XVA Art Hotel furnished by the well-known Egyptian architect Karim Rashid and the Lebanese designer Nada Debs is one of the most interesting for its interiors and includes a gallery, a café and a boutique. All these spaces are disguised within an old mansion whose labyrinth interiors resembles an urban Arab souk. The Vida Downtown offers a contemporary refurbishment where once stood an old and smaller version of it. Obviously, the Park Hyatt remains a classic, with its Moorish exteriors, blue cupolas, tiles and greenery and constitutes an exotic experience for those who want a touch of glamour.
