Coral Beach Hotel and Resort

Coral Beach Hotel, بيروت

The Coral Beach Hotel is a nice hotel in the South of بيروت, Lebanon. It is very recommendable especially in summer – with a wonderful pool between the buildings and access to the Mediterranean sea, even as there is no beach. It formerly belonged to the Sheraton group and has large rooms and a good restaurant. The location of the hotel is the big advantage in summer, but also a big disadvantage as you always need to take a taxi to access the city centre. It is a ten minutes taxi ride from there to the city and also to the airport.

Fair Hotel

Fair Hotel, Mönchengladbach

The Fair Hotel is a surprisingly good hotel next to the railway station of Mönchengladbach, Germany. It rather feels like a house with different modern and quite spacious apartments. The reception is not open around the clock but there is a giant red door you can’t miss and which opens with a key you receive when checking in. I had the feeling of living in the city, a situation I absolutely like.

Schlichte Hof

Schlichte Hof, Bielefeld

The Schlichte Hof is an ancient guesthouse from the year 1492 at Bielefeld, Germany. Within the half-timbered house you will find a hotel with few rooms and a good restaurant serving traditional dishes of Westphalia. But this place seems to be mostly known for family events and especially wedding parties. The former horse stable offers enough space on two levels for many guests.

Parkway Guesthouse

Parkway guesthouse, Dublin

Finding a good place to sleep in Dublin, Ireland wasn’t fun. You’ve got plenty of options but the prices were close to those in London, England. And I dislike paying a fortune just for a short night in a hotel. Therefore I decided to book the Parkway Guesthouse, a bed & breakfast in the north of the city – not far away from O’Connell street (upper). That was a good and a bad decision at the same time.

Logotel, Eisenach

The Logotel is a hotel near the city center of Eisenach, Germany. It is not a beautiful boutique hotel but solid standard and absolutely sufficient for a nice weekend. The hotel feels a bit old-fashioned but it has all you need and also offers Sky television. Next to the hotel you can find the Greek restaurant Athen that is highly frequented and seems to be a good choice. Two supermarkets are close-by.

Nartel Hotel

Hotel Nartel, Prishtinë

The Nartel Hotel at Prishtinë, Kosovo is an excellent choice if you want to book a room in the quality known from good hotels at home. It is a four star hotel located south of the city center, but it is only a ten minutes walk to reach the interesting places of the city. In fact it was one of only a hand full of hotels that you can book online and the combination of price and location was best. The hotel seems to be often used by diplomats and KFOR/NATO representatives.

The perfect place if you want to stay at the city center of Chemnitz, Germany.

Terraza de Óscar

La Terraza de Óscar, Madrid

If you’re at the city center of Madrid, Spain you will experience that the city is everything but not flat. You’re almost constantly walking up and down hills. But what is missing is some kind of viewpoint – you have no chance to see how vast the city is. One option is close to the Templo de Debod where you can have a look on the Palacio Real, the Catedral de la Almudena and the western part of the city, but it is only a limited view on the city.

Hotel Ópera

Hotel Ópera, Madrid

If you like to stay in the city center near the interesting places of Madrid, Spain then the Hotel Ópera might be an option. It is located directly next to the opera and is therefore only few meters away from the Palacio Real and the beautiful garden in front of it. The hotel is labeled as a four star hotel but feels rather like three stars – but that is okay, the fourth star is for location.

Good location

ibis Bremen-City, Bremen

If you’re standing in front of the ibis hotel at Bremen, Germany you might wonder if this is really a ‘good location’: it is located at the Rembertiring and a giant roundabout. But it is a good place if you want to visit the city – the railway station is less then 10 minutes on foot, the city center is close-by and it is next to the Viertel. You can even walk to the Weserstadion within 25 minutes, it is just two kilometers away.
