Hilton Addis Abeba Review – can you be any more rude Hilton front desk?

Hilton Addis Abeba Review – can you be any more rude Hilton front desk?

The Hilton Addis Abeba is the granddaddy of US-inspired hoteliers in Addis. It’s located on a steep hill and it is in close neighborhood to the Radisson Addis Abeba (Review), Intercontinental Addis Abeba (that one is fake and not part of IHG) and also rather close to the Hyatt Regency Addis Abeba (Review).   Check-in […]

Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik Review

Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik Review

The Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik is located just outside the gates of the Old Town of Dubrovnik. It’s prime real estate – you are just steps away from the ‘Black Water Bay’ filming location of ‘Game of Thrones’. The building itself is surprisingly large given the real estate prices in and around the World Heritage site […]

Hilton Hanoi Opera Review

Hilton Hanoi Opera Review

The Hilton Hanoi Opera is located in the most posh neighborhood of Hanoi – right behind the Opera House. The building is really old though and the entrance of the hotel is hidden in a back alley for some reason. Rates are usually around $250 for weeknights and half that for weekend nights. Check-in was […]

Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi Review

The Hilton Garden Inn is located just south of Hoan Kiem – the center of attention in Hanoi. It’s about a 5-minute walk to the south shore. I had booked using the app (with the current VISA promotion) and rates were just $57 plus tax for a weekday stay. At check-in there must have been […]

Hilton Cartagena Review

Hilton Cartagena Review

This was my second stay at the Hilton Cartagena – the last time I was here was in July 2014 (my review of the Hilton Cartagena from 2014). The hotel is clearly past its prime – it’s an old building but maintenance keeps adding ab layer of paint. It still sits pretty at the end […]

Hilton Izmir Review

Hilton Izmir Review

You can book the Hilton Izmir here. Izmir is Turkey’s third largest city and has a pretty position along the Aegean Sea.

Hilton Hotel Cartagena, Colombia Review

Hilton Hotel Cartagena, Colombia Review

Book Hilton Hotel Cartagena, Colombia here. For my stay in Cartagena I was initially considering a non-chain hotel (the city does not have a lot of chain hotels) but discovered that the Hilton Hotel & Resort Cartagena was just 16,000 Hilton HHonors points and $65 a night.
