Europe Hotels Review

Europe Grand Hotel
Location: Luzern (Lucern), Switzerland
Review: Simple, Clean and Comfortable, would be the 3 best words to describe this hotel. This is a hotel with a touch of European design and seasonal flowers as decoration which brings out the natural beauty. According to their website the building was built in 1872, no wonder it has the classic look. The room was quite good, bathroom was nicely designed. The exterior of the hotel is full of different type of flowers, very well maintained, and very fascinating. I kept taking photos of the hotel exterior. Dinner was delicious too- Western food. I would definately go back to this hotel.

NH Mannheim Viernheim
Location: Viernheim, Germany
Review: The hotel is clean, flat screen TV, very large room, mine was 3 beds in a room. The bathroom was ok. Breakfast was good. Lots of selection, they even have cute jam bottles. Overall, quite good.
Tip: This htoel is surrounded by business area. Walk around the corner or ask the reception for help on how to get to the nearest supermarket. You can get quite lots of things from there.

Holiday Inn Amsterdam Schipol
Location: Lijinden, Netherlands
Review: As you know Holiday Inn hotels, no complaint at all, because of the standard. This hotel look like a new hotel. It is quite a distance from town. The hotel lobby very spacious and has a modern design. The rooms is small comparing to other rooms that I have stayed before.Breakfast was awesome, looks like we were having a feast. From all different types of bread, ham to muesli and salad, they have such a variety.
Facinating Point: In order to use the elevator of the hotel, you have to put in your hotel card. For me it was: Wow! So high tech and tight security. Maybe for those who stayed in 5 star hotels like this before, would feel that is no big deal, maybe you can call me "ULU" but this is the first time that I'm staying in Holiday Inn a 5 star hotel. What can I say, the best hotel during the whole trip and a class above the rest.

Chao Chow Palace
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Review: Hmm...Maybe it was after the stay in Holiday Inn, the review above, a 5 star hotel & now to Chao Chow Palace. A real decline in standard. It wasn't a comfortable night.I'm sorry to say but it is not properly mantained. Everything- showed sign of "old age". The room looks a bit dark. The bed, the way of making the bed,old school, they use yellow, brownish comforter. They provided limited choices for breakfast. Most probably would not stay there again, if my budget allows. Not recommended.

Mecure Paris Orly Rungis
Review: Not bad, nice hotel. The rooms were clean. There is a bus nearby that takes you to the nearest supermarket. Just one thing that I didn't like, Breakfast was limited. I think there was a tour group before us and they took all the food, just a few pieces of bread left. The hotel did not refill fast enough. So there were a few people waiting for the food.

Quality Hotel Slough Windsor
Location: Slough,London
Review: This hotel is quite a distance from town. It is nearer to the Heathrow airport. I would say it takes about 1hour plus by bus and Tube.The staff was very kind,friendly and very helpful. We needed direction and information on Tube and buses into town, they gave us lots of information. The breakfast was quite good. The room was a bit small, but it is alright. I would recommend this hotel,if you would like to stay near the airport. I would say this is the place to say. If you are like to do lots of sightseeing in town, maybe it is better to stay in town, save lots of time.


  1. These are my favorite picks -
    Hotel Plaza Athenee, Paris, France - The rooms are wonderful and the location is probably the best in Paris. Close to everything - location, convenience, amenities. The best bar in town and the downstairs garden and restaurant are superb.

    St Regis Grand Rome, Rome, Italy - The Only Hotel in Italy Offering Butler Service, the St. Regis Grand is Located Just Off Famed Via Veneto. This Hotel is indeed the finest in Rome, the very definition of luxury.

    One Aldwych, London, United Kingdom - One Aldwych is London's most exciting contemporary hotel. Located in the middle of it all in Covent Garden, One Aldwych is within walking distance of all the theaters, museums and city sites. One Aldwych is home to London's most exciting restaurants and bars.
