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

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 […]

Radisson Blu Tashkent Review

Radisson Blu Tashkent Review

The Radisson Blu Tashkent is currently the sole ‘luxury’ business hotel in this city, since the InterContinental next door lost its franchise agreement and the Hyatt Regency Tashkent has yet to open. The Radisson Blu in Tashkent is located on the northern edge of downtown, which isn’t great, but it’s acceptable. Taxis get you almost anywhere in […]

InterContinental Almaty, Kazakhstan Review

InterContinental Almaty, Kazakhstan Review

The InterContinental Almaty is located in a good spot near the Independence Monument in Almaty. While it is a bit of a distance from the best downtown eateries, it benefits from a huge nearby park and the more upscale eateries that the town offers. The building is clearly quite old, which you will notice more as you near it. […]

Hyatt Regency Dushanbe Review

Hyatt Regency Dushanbe Review

The Hyatt Regency Dushanbe is located in the grounds of the excellent City Park, just about one mile from the city center. The building really stands out because of its modern architecture both inside and out. Check-in was super-friendly and in English. The staff reminded me very much of the excellent Hyatt staff in Bishkek, […]

Can AccorHotels Corporate Rates really save you money on your booking?

Can AccorHotels Corporate Rates really save you money on your booking?

  What are AccorHotels Corporate Rates? Corporate travelers can often benefit from cheaper stays with select hotel brands and this includes AccorHotels. Corporate discounts work by negotiating a discount – if a company has a large footprint in the area of the hotel the discount is likely bigger. The reverse is also true. If you travel […]

Hyatt Regency New Delhi Review

Hyatt Regency New Delhi Review

The Hyatt Regency Delhi had been my go-to hotel for more than 10 years, when I would make the trek to New Delhi on a bi-weekly basis. I always liked coming back, due to its great condition of rooms and the friendly staff. The Hyatt Regency used to consistently charge $250+ per night but I […]

InterContinental Dublin Review

InterContinental Dublin Review

The InterContinental Dublin has just been reflagged from being a Four Seasons property and is located in Ballsbridge, 3 miles south of Dublin’s city center. The airport bus ‘Aircoach’ stops right outside. The building may remind you more of a large foreign embassy (of which there are many in that neighborhood) than a hotel. It’s […]

Village Hotel Edinburgh Review

Village Hotel Edinburgh Review

I’m usually hesitant to book a chain hotel that I haven’t heard of that shows as a great deal on Expedia, but the Village Hotel Edinburgh seemed too good to pass up. For £64 ($84), it would indeed offer something more akin to an Aloft experience. The hotel is located about 5 miles outside the […]

Radisson Blu Libreville Review & Park Inn Libreville Review – Are these the two properties with the world’s meanest staff?

Radisson Blu Libreville Review & Park Inn Libreville Review – Are these the two properties with the world’s meanest staff?

I decided to combine my Radisson Blu Libreville and Park Inn Libreville reviews into one, as both properties share one building and almost all facilities. The properties are located about a mile from the airport and 5 miles from the city center in one of Libreville’s best neighborhoods along the seashore. The hotels operate free […]

ibis Douala Review

ibis Douala Review

The discount hotel chain ibis does not usually inspire me to stay more than one night at one of its airport properties, but the Douala hotel landscape does not offer too much choice; besides the (oldish) Akwa Palace and the tired Pullman, the ibis Douala does well and rates are usually around $80 to $100. The outside […]

Holiday Inn Accra Review

Holiday Inn Accra Review

The hotel marketplace in Accra isn’t an easy one. There are beach hotels, downtown hotels like Kempinski and Mövenpick and a number of hotels at the airport (which is just 15 minutes from downtown). Rates for most hotels hovered around $250 – $350 per night. The Holiday Inn Accra looks like your typical airport hotel […]

InterContinental Lagos Review

You can book the InterContinental Lagos here The InterContinental Lagos is located about 35 miles from Lagos Airport, right in one of the best neighborhoods of Lagos on Victoria Island (or VI as the locals refer to it). The immediate area is rather decrepit though and the building is surrounded by random buildings and bunch […]
