Rooftop: Aroma Restaurant This luxury boutique hotel stands out for its incredible views -- guests can take in the nearby Colosseum from the rooftop restaurant and lounge, as well as from their rooms (these view rooms cost a bit more). The 16 rooms themselves are quite spacious for European standards and have modern decor, flat-screen TVs and dim lighting (that's almost too sexy to be practical). The rooftop restaurant, Aroma, offers fine dining and spectacular views -- and serves a free American-style buffet breakfast daily. The accompanying lounge provides the perfect spot to toast gladiators past and present. Rooftop: Sky Bar This 105-room hotel in the heart of Barcelona bills itself as a "gay hotel" that is "hetero-friendly." It is in the heart of the Eixample neighborhood, the city's dynamic gay area with great restaurants and nightlife. The theme here is seduction -- nude photographs adorn the walls, naked mannequins hang out in the hallways, and see-through glass bathroom walls make for little privacy in the rooms. Skybar's sleek, modern design is sexy without trying too hard. Comfortable couches and cozy seating areas offer a laid back vibe and all around there are breathtaking views of Barcelona. The Axel Hotel is a good choice for couples, gay or straight, looking for a sexy atmosphere and a modern scene. Rooftop: Terrazza Brunelleschi Restaurant Housed in the former residences of the Bertolini princes, the Grand Hotel Baglioni lives up to the grand image painted by Florence's past. The hotel is filled with heavy-handed regal touches and ornate decor from top to bottom. The 193 rooms are very spacious (not often the case in a historic building), and feel luxurious, decked out with classic Italian furnishings, large leaded windows, gorgeous dark wood (the ceilings, floors, and furniture), and equally spacious dazzling white bathrooms (though there are some awkward shower/tub combos). Both the Terrazza Brunelleschi restaurant and the hotel's rooftop garden offer stunning views of Florence. All of this comes with a hefty price tag, of course, but the gorgeous views, convenient location and rich design make the splurge worth it for some. Rooftop: Terrace BA This upscale boutique is centrally located between Bairro Alto and Chiado neighborhoods, within walking distance to attractions. Its 55 rooms have been individually decorated and have wonderful extras depending on their category: Some have clawfoot tubs, others Ralph Lauren-designed wallpaper, Nuno Cera photos, or balconies. But the highlight here is the stylish but cozy rooftop terrace, boasting gorgeous city and river views. However, this all comes with a hefty price tag, so it's worth comparing prices with other upscale properties in the area. Also, don't expect Ritz-Carlton-style luxury -- it's the boutique-y details that shine here. Rooftop: Agora Restaurant & Bar The tiny front desk, lack of an actual lobby, and small elevators might give a poor first impression of this upscale boutique hotel, but don't be deterred. Inside, spacious rooms are elegant (pale yellow striped walls, blue and white toile bedspreads), and have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and hydro massage showers. The Agora Restaurant provides both delicious fare and gorgeous views, but is rather expensive. Its accompanying rooftop lounge provides a variety of seating options -- including cabana-like structures for large groups, small tables, and dozens of barstools facing the city -- and a light, breezy atmosphere in which to sit back and relax. Rooftop: Ailanto Roof Terrace This hotel boasts traditional, airy rooms decorated in soft tones and featuring flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and nice bathrooms with intricate tile work. But, the highlight of the property is the Ailanto Roof Terrace with panoramic views of the Villa Borghese Gardens and surrounding city. The restaurant, where breakfast is served, has both an indoor dining area that offers wall-to-wall windows and an outdoor patio with seating. Rooftop: Evo Restaurant This modern, statuesque high-rise hotel towers above the financial center in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, a city to the southwest of Barcelona. The retro-modern decor is trendy; in the lobby, plush seating is set low to the floor, and the two bars and two restaurants are stylish. The rooftop restaurant, Evo, is the most impressive of all -- it's enclosed by a domed-glass ceiling and offers incredible panoramic views of the city.
