Absolutely outstanding drinks in an amazing setting: No. 27 Bar & Lounge @ The Shelbourne (21. May 2022)

I had originally planned to stay at The Shelbourne Hotel which is an Autograph Collection hotel – so, one of my favourites in the Marriott group. However, it turned out that this weekend was a Rugby match, so things were kind of in the incredibly high hotel prices area making it somewhat unappealing to stay […]

When a drink with ink sounds much fancier than it really is: Pelikan Bar @ Sheraton Pelikan Hotel (14. May 2022)

When a drink with ink sounds much fancier than it really is: Pelikan Bar @ Sheraton Pelikan Hotel (14. May 2022)

Until I stayed at the Sheraton Pelikan Hotel, I wasn’t aware that the name was due to the fact that the hotel used to be the factory for Pelikan ink where they produced their stylos. They changed the whole thing into a hotel with a bar and restaurants – and I decided to have a […]

Perfect for a pre-sleep drink: Lobby Bar @ Palacio Santa Clara, Autograph Collection (7. May 2022)

Perfect for a pre-sleep drink: Lobby Bar @ Palacio Santa Clara, Autograph Collection (7. May 2022)

When you spend the whole day walking, eating, and drinking, then it’s often time to hit the hay early in the evening. But not without making a last pit stop at the hotel bar. The “Moscow Mule” (EUR 14.00) was prepared swiftly and neatly and turned out to be quite good too. The Lobby Bar […]

A sound breakfast option when you stay here: Lobby Restaurant @ Palacio Santa Clara, Autograph Collection (7. May 2022)

A sound breakfast option when you stay here: Lobby Restaurant @ Palacio Santa Clara, Autograph Collection (7. May 2022)

I absolutely love the Palacio Santa Clara as the place is beautiful, and the staff is super professional and friendly. And that is also true for the staff which attends you while you are having breakfast – bit shout out to Patricia here since she really excels in terms of being friendly and making sure […]

A breakfast not worth paying for: Restaurant AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Milan (2. April 2022)

A breakfast not worth paying for: Restaurant AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Milan (2. April 2022)

Since Milan has hotel prices which kind of keep blowing my mind, I decided to give the AC Hotel Milan a try (and we’re still talking about 185.00 EUR per night and breakfast is not even included). They charge you a lovely EUR 13.00 for breakfast – which doesn’t seem right looking at the room […]

A rather disappointing breakfast experience: Restaurant Atmosfera @ The Regency, Rome, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel (20. March 2022)

A rather disappointing breakfast experience: Restaurant Atmosfera @ The Regency, Rome, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel (20. March 2022)

When I’m staying at a Marriott hotel, I’m always somehow hoping to get a great breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, that’s not the case at The Regency. However, they have kind of an exhaustive breakfast menu from which you can pick your dishes. Frankly though, the prices are quite steep overall since you’d end up paying more […]

A decent lounge offering for Marriott Bonvoy elite members: Ellipse Lounge @ Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade (21. February 2022)

A decent lounge offering for Marriott Bonvoy elite members: Ellipse Lounge @ Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade (21. February 2022)

If you have Elite status with Marriott Bonvoy, you’re allowed to order one dish at the Ellipse Lounge since there is no actual lounge at the moment. I went for the “lettuce salad, vinaigrette, olives, bread chip, parmesan” (EUR 9.00) with “backed halloumi” (EUR 5.00) which was quite okay. The basis is pretty similar to […]

Decent food offer for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members: Ellipse Lounge @ Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade (14. February 2022)

Since the Sheraton hasn’t opened its Executive Lounge yet, they offer you one dish and one drink at the Ellipse lounge in the lobby. I went for the “caesar salad (caesar dressing, bacon, bread chip, parmesan)” (EUR 11.00) with added “pan-fried chicken breast” (EUR 7.00) which was not only served swiftly but turned out to […]
