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 […]

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. […]

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

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 […]
