The entire world is your office as a digital nomad as long as you have access to great WiFi and suitable working spaces. And while we used to suffer through power plugs in awkward places, and balancing a laptop on pillows, hotels nowadays have really upped their game.
There are a number of hotels now meeting the trend of digital nomadism, and setting themselves up specifically to offer a fantastic work / travel space. They offer strong, fast WiFi, great cafes, and discounts on long stays.
The hotels mentioned below even have their own co-working spaces.
If you’re working from the road, the following are the top hotels in the world for digital nomads. We’ve chosen our favorites across four continents; use them as your newest international base!
Top Hotels for Digital Nomads
Marvie Hotel & Health, Split Croatia
Ever dreamed of living and working in Croatia? Maybe taking a dip in the Adriatic Sea inbetween meetings, or working in the morning, and taking the afternoon to sail the Mediterranean?
Marvie Hotel & Health is our first and favorite pick for best digital nomad hotel. Specifically set up for long-term stays, it has co-working spaces within the actual premises, a gluten-free restaurant, rooftop bar with a pool, gym, wellness area, indoor pool, and, most importantly, very strong and reliable wi-fi! (200 Mbps Internet).
A long-term stay is considered to be 28 days or more, and if you don’t wish to work from your room, you can find a more social work setting downstairs in their co-working space.
Though the rooms do have a beautiful sea view from the room, allowing you to work from the room overlooking the Adriatic Sea …
Working from the room overlooking the Adriatic Sea
The city of Split has become one of the most popular digital nomad hubs in Europe because of strong connectivity and an easygoing Mediterranean lifestyle; there’s a year round killer climate, safety, and affordable cost of living.
Being part of the EU, EU citizens can move and work here without hassle or needing to apply for a visa. For non EU citizens, the Croatian Government offers a Croatian residence permit, which is a short-term stay for a maximum of 12 months.
For this visa (also called the Croatian digital nomad residence permit), you need to be a third-country national who works for or owns a company that is not registered in Croatia and has no Croatian employees, and when you’re applying you’ll notably need proof of a Croatian address.
If you’ve booked Marvie’s long term stay package, you can include the hotel address in your application for this 12 month visa, which is Peričićeva ul. 1, 21000, Split, Croatia.

Chiang Mai is considered to be Asia’s digital nomad hub, with remote workers and location independent entrepreneurs flocking to set up a base here – it has a thriving expat social community, largely because of the cheap cost of living, and great digital infrastructure.
The51Hometel is our choice of best digital nomad hotel in Chiang Mai, a family operated serviced apartment hotel which offers rates for nightly, weekly or monthly stays. There is strong and stable internet throughout the building even though its shared; low ping and high speeds.
The apartments here are modern, minimalist, and spacious, stylishly furnished with loft style high ceilings, very comfy bedding, and while there’s plenty of space to work within the apartments themselves (huge desk), they also have a shared co-working space if you’re after something more social.

Selina Lapa Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
We’ve chosen our favorite in Europe, and our favorite in Asia, next we’re working from South America; and our favorite digital nomad hotel on the continent is Selina Lapa Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Just footsteps away from Selarón’s mosaic stairs and the Lapa Arches, Selina Lapa is a magnet for international travelers, Rio’s emerging artists, and creative entrepreneurs. There’s a South American-inspired restaurant, rooftop terrace, yoga deck, cocktail bar, and a movie room (so plenty to keep the work / life balance in check!).
More importantly though, their co-work space is the heart of Rio’s budding start-up scene, complete with hot desks, communal areas, and a strong WiFi connection.

The Playroom is a workspace with Nintendo games, pool tables and shuffleboards, while the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Cavalier, serves British favourites. After a long day of work, unplug with a massage at the on-site spa.
