InterContinental Malta Review – or how many rooftop pools does one need?

InterContinental Malta Review – or how many rooftop pools does one need?

InterContinental Malta is located in St. Julian’s bay – the ‘party district’ of Malta. As with many buildings in Malta, the InterContinental has mushroomed from a modest footprint to a whole city block that seems to be sprawling all over the place. In fact, the 10th-floor pool got an addition on the 19th floor to provide […]

Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

The Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre is located about 3 miles away from the Prague Old Town Center. I consider this an advantage since it gets you out of the crowds and just 500 feet behind the building is Vyšehrad – likely my favorite place in Prague. Check-in was friendly but pretty lackadaisical. We requested […]

Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar Review

The Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar is located a few blocks to the west of the city center of Ulaanbaatar, which is also it’s geographical center. I arrived a bit early but the front desk was ready to give me rooms keys right away and threw in free breakfast. Lovely! I asked for a quite room and […]

Holiday Inn Zhengzhou Review

Holiday Inn Zhengzhou Review

The Holiday inn Zhengzhou shares a compound with the Crowne Plaza Zhengzhou (it also shares the front desk), the Holiday Inn Express and the Sofitel. All the buildings seem to have seen better times and are easily 30+ years old. They clearly went up before the current hotel boom in China. This ‘mini hotel city’ […]

InterContinental Cali Review

InterContinental Cali Review

The InterContinental Cali is a major landmark in Cali and has given rise to an upscale neighborhood right next to it. The hotel is huge and occupies a large city block in prime real estate next to the Cali River. Unbeknownst to me at the time, there is a free airport shuttle that runs the […]

Crowne Plaza Bandung Review

Crowne Plaza Bandung Review

I selected the Crowne Plaza Bandung for this review for its good location, low rate and reputation for being far above brand standard. The Crowne Plaza is located close to the Bandung downtown area – just two blocks from the Masjid Raya Bandung (the Grand Mosque), the bustling heart of the city on a weekend […]

Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur Review

Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur Review

I selected the Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur for this review for its location, price and because it is a new hotel in the city. The hotel is located right behind Bandung Airport. Alas, the terminal is on the other side and while it’s still a little more than a mile away, traffic makes it a […]

The InterContinental Osaka is located in a new development just outside of Umeda Station. If you have been to Osaka you may know Namba Station and its surroundings; Umeda is four subway stations further.

Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye Review

Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye Review

I have been to Istanbul, including the Taksim area, a number of times. For my latest trip, I selected the Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye. The hotel is located about a 15-minute walk from Taksim Square in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Harbiye. Harbiye is a bit of the new ‘Moda’ here, which has become seriously […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 Intercontinental Bali Resort (Review) is located just south of the Bali/ Denpasar airport in Jimbaran. It sits on a huge property that opens into a wide sandy bay. This stretch of beach is one of Bali’s best with a gentle surf. I arrived for my stay just at 1.30 PM and was looking forward […]
