The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is a favourite among businessmen who have meetings at the International Commerce Centre, and young couples who enjoy the finest things in life.
The modern and classy interior design makes the hotel an absolute gem in the skyscraper-dominated city. It is not difficult to see why the Ritz-Carlton is one of the top hotels in the world. The service? Perfection. The staff know each guest by their first name, and they are always polite and courteous, and it feels like they are genuinely happy to see you at the hotel.
I am a firm believer that staying in a good hotel completes the travel experience. Of course, quality comes at a price and many people would baulk at paying so much for a room. But when you get to enjoy the hotel’s amenities and have a good night’s rest, you will understand that the money is well-spent.
For me, one of the places to stay in Hong Kong has to be Intercontinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong. The location of the 5-star hotel makes it a favourite among businessmen and leisure travellers. It is positioned on the fringe of Tsim Sha Tsui and is within walking distance – just a 10 minutes walk to East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station – to the shopping, business and entertainment districts. Furthermore, the hotel offers breathtaking views of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour.
“Can you recommend me a decent and affordable hotel in Singapore with a good location?” I get this question a lot from visiting friends and readers.
If you have friends who are asking for advice on where to stay in Singapore, or if you are looking to go on a staycation during the weekend, Studio M Hotel is the place to consider.
Folks, sorry for the delay. The winner of my Sofitel So Bangkok Giveaway is Verraine. I will be having more upcoming giveaways, thank you for the support.
During my second trip to Bangkok in September, I stayed at Sofitel So Bangkok and it took my breath away. The hotel is chic, playful and bold – it has a character which will make you fall in love with it.
if you are planning a trip to Bangkok, I’d highly recommend Sofitel So Bangkok for a truly memorable stay. To me, it is definitely one of the best hotels in Bangkok.
P.S. I am giving away two nights stay at Sofitel So Bangkok for one lucky winner. Read on to find out how you can win the hotel stay.
From the exterior, QT Hotel looks like a normal building: plain, ordinary and boring – a place that you will not pay much attention to. But once you step inside, you are greeted by the bright and funky lobby, and chances are, you will be “oohing” and “aahing” at everything, just like we did when we stayed there during our trip to Gold Coast organised by Scoot and Queensland Tourism Board.
QT Hotel at Gold Coast stands out for its bold and innovative design, and given that it is reasonably priced at A$160/night (depends on availability and season), I dare say that you will love the experience. If you are going to Gold Coast for a holiday, you must stay with them.
// The winners of the giveaway are #345 and #495. I have another upcoming hotel giveaway, do look out for it!
Bangkok is a city of contrasts: the chaos and traffic jams can drive you mad, but at the same time, you can find peace and solace in the beautiful temples and spa treatments.
Apart from crazy shopping, wonderful street food and relaxing massages, one of my favourite things about Bangkok is the abundance of beautiful hotels.
During my first trip to Bangkok last month, I stayed in Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit (189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15 Klongtoey Nua Wattana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand Tel: 02 126 9999), and it was a memorable experience. Luxurious, elegant, modern, it is the perfect place from which to explore the city.

During the Dean & Deluca trip to New York City, the folks kindly arranged for us to stay at Mondrian – a boutique hotel in SoHo.
After posting several photos of the hotel on instagram (follow me at @ladyironchef), I received a lot of comments about how beautiful the place is. I figured that I must tell you more about the hotel.
Mondrian at SoHo is by the Morgans Hotel group, and it is perfectly located at Crosby Street, which sits between Broadway and Lafayette Street. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby like Balthazar, and The Mercer Kitchen. Within walking distances, you can also find Little Italy and Chinatown. And not to mention all the boutique shops in the SoHo area.
