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 […]

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 Holiday Inn Belgrade is located in ‘Novi Belgrade’ a part of town with a rather mixed history but lot’s of new developments (and buildings).  The local ‘Uber-like’ service gets you to town for under $4 or it is a 45 minute walk. The hotel looks rather new from the outside but is pretty old […]

Singapore Airlines Economy Review 787 and A330 Bali to Male, Maldives via Singapore

While the surf at this beach can be dangerous with highly varying water levels the area is my favorite in Bali. There are great eateries and restaurants as well as good coffee in the immediate neighborhood. We […]
