It was my first time to visit Malaysia for a short R&R and we decided to book a room at Swiss-Garden Hotel Melaka since it was the same hotel where he stayed during one of his business trips in this country. Read More
Garden Terrace is one of the two restaurants that the Swiss-Garden Hotel has and during our full stay, there were 2 failed attempts to dine in this place. See full story below. Read More
Long weekends can be great for a quick out of town trip or in our case, we chose staycation. A little R&R within the city is actually not impossible. Wherever you live, I’m pretty sure that there are ways to spend your holiday. It’s been years since our last staycation so we wanted to do it again and this time, we chose Swissôtel Merchant Court to be our home for a couple of days. Read More
We stayed here for 8 nights and the hotel is less than 10 minutes away from the airport. This alone makes it ideal especially if you are staying for business purposes. The hotel also provides airport shuttle service for their guests. The location is also accessible to public transportations going to the city centre and other attractions in Geneva.
When we travelled to London last December 2013, we stayed for 9 days at the Bermondsey Square Hotel. Location-wise, it is at the city center, just along Tooley Street and very accessible to all types of transportation (Bus/Tube/private vehicle). Within the area, is a restaurant named Del’Aziz offering Moroccan cuisine. Next is a Sainsbury store, a convenience store where you can basically get whatever you need especially if you are staying for more than 3 days. Then, there is another place that looks like a bar/cafe and you can also watch movies. It was a mini-movie haus.
For starters, the hotel was not our personal preference for this trip. Despite the bad reviews that I read online, I just told myself to be ready, make the most out of it and what else could be worse than our stay at that old Harris Hotel in Batam, Indonesia last 2013? We thought that the promo getaway package was a real steal because of the promising photos they had online. The rest of the facilities and service are just not up to the typical hotel standards. So yes, I was ready and have not set so much expectation for this one.
