Hotel Memberships

I can’t remember when I started on my first hotel membership program.

I kind of used to think hotel memberships are a hassle to sign up for, for something that you possibly won’t end up using anyway. But then again, that was a time when I perhaps just started out in the working life and didn’t travel that much.

[Hotel Review] Ibis Styles Sapporo

This was the last night of of guided Hokkaido tour and boy am I glad that we were placed here!

I later found out…..nothing much actually haha.

Ramblings of a hotel fusspot

Wait, I am not fussy about hotels as in the I-need-to-be-treated-like-a-queen way. But I definitely am fussy. About erm most things haha. I hope I am not alone in this.

The sole reason why I hated chalets was because of the grimy / sandy floors, the thing that they call a bed, icky bedsheets, and god-knows-how-long-it-has-gone-uncleaned toilets. I mean, I love the bonding spirit and all – but I think bonding happens better for me when I’m actually in a nice clean place.
