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

However, operations seemingly weren’t affected (as far as I could tell). Jet Airways operates from New Delhi’s Terminal 3, which is a new world of Indian aviation and looks more […]

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Agra Review

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Agra is located to the east of the city, about 2 miles from the city’s main attraction – the Taj Mahal.
