Hotel Motel One, Bruxelles

I’m a major fan of the simplicity in combination with the quality of Motel One hotels. The one at Bruxelles, Belgium has two central advantages: first it is located on Rue Royal and in convenient walking distance to the Parc de Bruxelles, the Cathédrale des Saints Michel et Gudule and the Grote Markt. Second it has a large inner courtyard in which you can relax in the evenings, enjoy a last Belgian beer and to reflect on your day.

Centrum hotel, Λευκωσία

Λευκωσία offers a lot of hotels, for sure. But if you want to stay inside the ancient city walls of the capital city there is only a small selection in the southwest. The Centrum hotel is a viable choice as it is close to the Ledras street leading through the city and to the occupied north and it is surrounded by numerous restaurants and bars.

Mayfair hotel, Πάφος

Checking-in at the Mayfair hotel at Πάφος is like entering the party zone. It is one of these classic all-inclusive hotels that people book that want to hang out at the pool all day, need children’s entertainment and like all food and drinks already paid. Unfortunately, I only found at about this when reaching the hotel.

Lights, Λάρνακα

The island of Cyprus is a place that you can best explore by car. Many interesting places are far away from civilization and every city on the island can be explored within one day. Therefore, I planned a roundtrip in the Greek part of the island and booked a different hotel for each and every day. On the first day I arrived already in darkness, had to navigate while trying to stay on the left side of the road and I didn’t want to search for a car park after a long day of travelling. That’s why I booked a hotel at Λάρνακα that would normally never see me, the E-Hotel.

K+K Elisabeta, București

The K+K Elisabeta is a nice and not overpriced hotel close to the city center of București. It is located northeast of the old town close to the Teatrul National. You can easily reach it with the metro which stops at Universitate. From there you walk to the east passing along the agriculture ministry. Directly behind that building you must turn right into Strada Slănic and you’ll see the hotel immediately on the left side.

City am Bahnhof

Hotel City am Bahnhof, Bern

Switzerland is an extremely expensive country. You can pay a fortune for a vacation there and hotel rates are remarkably high as well. If you don’t need an extraordinary, beautiful hotel because you’re just on a city trip you might decide to have a look at the hotel ‘City am Bahnhof‘. It has one particularly important advantage: it is located just across the road when leaving the main railway station of Bern.

Andersen Boutique Hotel

Andersen Boutique Hotel, København

Getting by train to København, Denmark, is easy and highly recommended – when coming from central Europe you’ll cross the water on long bridges two times (Lillebælt and Storebælt). When doing so it is always nice to have a hotel close to the railway station. One of these is the Andersen Boutique Hotel conveniently located only three minutes on foot from the København H main railway stop. It is a beautiful boutique hotel with nice rooms and friendly staff.
