Where to stay in Reykjavik: Hostel B47

Posted on 18. Jul, 2014 by .

1

Iceland is one of the handful of places in the world that are notoriously expensive, along with the rest of Scandinavia and Japan, for example. Because one can only eat so many hot dogs for the sake of budget, I wanted my accommodation to be private, stylish and inexpensive. These were the three items that […]

Where to stay in Stuttgart: Waldhotel

Posted on 03. Dec, 2013 by .

My visit in the region of Stuttgart was albeit very short, but immensely enjoyable. Christmas markets, bratwursts, gorgeous German architecture and tons of history awaited, and I was very excited. So excited, in fact, that I had completely forgot to read about my accommodation. Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed or badly surprised. Far from it. Waldhotel […]

One of my travel pet peeves (and I have many!) is having to use public transportation whenever I arrive/leave a city - there just isn’t anything fun about carrying a suitcase around in the metro. Locals hate it, travellers hate it - it’s a lose-lose situation. So whenever I have the opportunity, I try to […]

Accommodation in London can be quite a puzzle to solve - between all the incredible locations and neighborhoods, luxury or budget opportunities and everything else, picking the right option can become quite the nightmare. Luckily, a new trend emerged on the market over the last few years: short-term vacation rentals. Live like a Londoner for […]

Where to Stay in Brighton: Kipps Backpackers

Posted on 23. Jun, 2013 by .

Kipps Backpackers in Brighton is the ultimate backpacking hostel — inexpensive beds, basic amenities, good location close to the sea and the bars of North Laine. In my opinion, a great place to crash for a night or two (but perhaps not much longer). Kipps Backpackers Brighton: The Location View Larger Map   The hostel is […]

Upon my most recent visit to Paris I was lucky enough to be invited by Hotel Le Five to experience one of their famous “scintillating canopy” rooms, I didn’t hesitate for long. My experience with the Elegancia Group had always been outstanding, and I couldn’t wait to find out if this hotel would top the […]

If you think that this is just another review of a European hostel, you are dead wrong. This hostel isn’t anything like the others. It will ruin hostel experiences for anyone because, well, it’s just too good, and few other hostels around the world can boast being equally cool, and luxurious. Yes, a luxurious hostel. […]

Why You Should Stay at Yotel Gatwick Airport

While budget airlines are great on the budget - well, that’s about it. It really is just a question of money. Because who actually likes having a restless night sleep before getting to the airport at an ungodly hour? No one, that’s who. I don’t know about you, but the idea of having to get up […]

When I visited London last November, I found myself in a difficult situation that made me both desperate for the comfort of home, and angry at amateurs of this world - my accommodation, which had been arranged for months, had been cancelled, just a few hours before I was supposed to check in. I had […]

When I was in London last fall for a travel conference in Canary Wharf, I knew transportation would be a challenge. Anyone who has ever changed lines in the Tube will tell you as much. But surprisingly, thanks to a perfectly located hotel, I was able to travel swiftly to my seminars every morning. And for […]

Living Like a Local With Wimdu in Amsterdam

When Wimdu offered to host me during my trip to Amsterdam, I was beyond excited - I’m a big fan of apartment rentals when I travel for extended periods of time, so this partnership couldn’t come at a better time. After 2 weeks in hotels, I was ready to be “home”, if only for a […]

During my stint across Scandinavia with Eurail.com, I had planned to only stay two nights in Malmö, which I thought would give me ample time to explore the city and the surroundings. How wrong was I! There are many things to see and do in the area, and a few more nights would have been […]
