[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! Apart from feeling like a whale from the 7days of non stop eating, maximum sleeping, and minimum walking, I managed to collect enough braincells to take pictures and remember sufficient details for a review.

[Hotel Review] The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

I was part of a 7D6N guided tour in Hokkaido and this was the ‘star’ hotel of the trip – and rightfully so! Beautiful hotel grounds both inside and outside :).

The hotel is under SPG’s portfolio (Sheraton I think?) and I was skeptical that the property would be nice based on some pics I saw online but my worries turned out unfounded after all.

(some pics are from my first visit as pretty much nothing has changed)

This Jan 2016 (sorry slow review I know) is my second visit to the property – the first was when it was still a Traders back in 2014. I was looking for a chillax getaway with mum just for 2D1N and we didnt want a city-ish hotel so I decided to try this again and see what has changed now that its a Jen. I later found out…..nothing much actually haha.

[Hotel Review] Novotel Bangkok Ploechit Sukhumvit

And of course I once again stalked the Accor 40% Super Sale to secure this place at a superb deal for my 4D3N leisure trip with a slightly different agenda, other than shopping and eating hehe.

Prior to arrival, I had emailed the hotel to enquire about the upgrade in accordance with my Accor Gold membership and responses were prompt – was told they will try their best for me.

[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway

This hotel has such a youthful vibe, it makes me feel old. I’ve been here countless time to wine and dine, but never to stay. And I have to admit: the only reason why we picked this spot for our 3D2N family staycation was because this is about the only hotel in Singapore whose lounge allows kids below 12 to enter. It was such a painful experience trying to find places who welcome the little tot.

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.

[Hotel Review] Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore

I was stalking for staycation options for a weekend in September when Accor decided to have their bi-annual Private Sale! 40% off was really hard to resist and I’ve been wanting to try Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore, the only Mercure in Singapore. I’ve tried Mercures in Melbourne, Bangkok, Phuket, and Beijing – all not bad at all! And so it was booked for 26-27 September and we were all set!
