Hotel de la Ville, a superb small luxury hotel in Monza, was my home for a few days in November when I went exploring Lake Como and Lombardy. Read along to learn why I loved it so much.
Last weekend I visited the beautiful coastal town of Oostende in Belgium. I opted to stay in Hotel ’t Botteltje ***, a hotel close to the beach that entirely revolves around beer!
I recently got to stay a few days on Ameland, one of the Dutch Wadden Islands. During my time there, I stayed in Hotel Nobel. Hotel Nobel is located right in the centre of the tiny little town of Ballum.
When I visited Oregon, I wanted to see all of it, not just the coastline. So my travels led me east, towards Dufur. Who would have thought! Okay, I know what you guys are thinking: “Ben, where the hell is Dufur? And why would you even get a hotel there?” And I would say: why… Read more »
If after reading this post you’re still in total dispair about what hotel to pick in Portland, fear not my friends as I present you the Jupiter Hotel. This hotel gives off major ‘motel-meets-modern’ vibes and I’m into it.
After my Icelandic stopover, a pleasant business class flight took me to Oregon. After picking up our rental car, I headed out to downtown Portland, where I stayed in The Society Hotel.
At the end of a rewarding road trip that led me to West and South Iceland and all the way into the highlands, I spent my last night in Iceland in Hotel Husafell. Hotel Husafell might be the exact opposite of Hotel Ranga I visited earlier: this hotel definitely relishes in the somewhat typical minimalistic… Read more »
Look, I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you guys; when you first arrive at Hotel Ranga you’re going to be overwhelmed… and also slightly puzzled by the interior.

Check-in happens at Britta’s Pensionat, a cozy guesthouse with 50’s interior. Britta made me feel welcome straight away and I wouldn’t have minded staying… Read more »
As you might have read in my previous post, I was back in Stockholm for a couple of days during the Easter weekend. We tried out the top 10 attractions, threw a bomb in our bath and stayed in the Stockholm’s nicest boutique hotel: Miss Clara Hotel!
Last week I embarked on a cruise to Western Caribbean cruise on Holland America’s Oosterdam along with my dad. Arriving the day before from Europe, we needed a one-night stay in a hotel in Tampa. A lot of popular pre-cruise hotels are located in the Rocky Point Area west of the airport, but we opted… Read more »
During our last visit to Prague my girlfriend and I stayed at the Boscolo hotel. Boscolo is a small Italian 5-star hotel chain, with hotels in Prague, Budapest, Nice, Rome, Venice and Milan. Having previously resided in Boscolo Exedra Nice and Boscolo Budapest, I had no doubt the hotel in Prague would be of the same… Read more »
Boscolo sure knows how to pick their hotels! As their hotel in Prague, Boscolo Budapest is located in an Italian Renaissance-style palace. The building from 1894 offers cozy but highly luxurious rooms for a pampered stay in Hungary’s romantic capital. The building is also home to the famous New York Café, which in itself is… Read more »
During my recent trip to Warsaw, I had the pleasure of staying at the Intercontinental. When I arrived, the selection of fancy cars at the hotel entrance couldn’t be missed, so things looked promising. Good to know those guys chose the same 5 star hotel to spend their nights in as I did.
