Diplomat Hotel Cebu
My daytime schedules for this visit to the capital of the Visayas in the South of the Philippines was very busy. I was looking for a basic tourist hotel. Clean and cheap, but in central location on F. Ramos Street in downtown. A quick online search yielded various solutions and The Diplomat Hotel looked like […]
Amari Nova Suites in Pattaya
Residential Suites in the North of Pattaya, a calm place with luxury home touch.
The Clarkton (revisited)
It’s been awhile since I first covered the Clarkton Hotel in Angeles City as my first hotel review. I have been visiting this hotel in the Philippines over and over again and there have been many changes to this establishment. First of all they have constructed a new 4-story annex with 30 spacious studio rooms. […]

Kuala Lumpur Sheraton
New trip to Malaysia: time to try another first class hotel around KLCC with views of Petronas Towers: Sheraton Imperial. It’s a little less modern than the Westin, but the old lady of luxury hotels offers superb service and very spacious club rooms. The gym is very nice with top shelf equipment, but the swimming […]
Centrepoint Sukhumvit in Bangkok
It’s a couple of years ago when I stayed at a serviced apartment rather than a hotel while visiting Thailand’s capital Bangkok for a stopovers of several weeks. One must admit, serviced apartments offer a more residential feel while providing all the conveniences of a first class hotel. They don’t rent out small rooms, but […]
