Hotel Petka

Hotel Petka, Dubrovnik

The hotel Petka at Dubrovnik is a special case: it is recommended in modern tourist guides, but looks rather old-fashioned. It is in the non-touristy harbor area but good for tourists, because it is close to the cruise boat harbor and the bus terminal. You can enjoy more normal Croatian life but you’ll always need to take a bus to get to the ancient city center.

Hôtel Perrin

Hôtel Perrin, Lëtzebuerg

Only 300 meters away from the main railway station of Lëtzebuerg the Hôtel Perrin is a good place to stay for people travelling by train. It was built in 1932 and the Art Déco architecture combines well with the modern approach of the hotel. The heart of the hotel is the gentleman behind the desk who seems to speak every language of the modern world.

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.

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.
