Definitely one of the better breakfast places: Restaurant Tops & Terrace @ Twelve at Hengshan (3. – 5. June 2017)

The breakfast at the Restaurant Tops & Terrace belongs to the better ones I’ve tried so far. To be entirely honest, with a solid 292 CNY for one person it is also at the upper price level, therefore, you should be able to expect quite something. But you won’t be disappointed as the selection really […]

Overrated and pseudo exclusive bar: Woobar @ W Taipei (1. June 2017)

I am a huge fan of SPG properties and usually also of W hotels but here we’re facing the ‘pseudo exclusivity’ card again. We went up to the Woobar in the W Taipei without booking anything in advance as it was a rather spontaneous decision. Once you arrive at the top where the bar is […]

Quite a decent breakfast on the top floor: Sheraton Club Lounge @ Sheraton Grand Taipei (28. May 2017)

After the first experience at the Sheraton in ‘Kitchen 12’ I was not entirely sure what to expect from the lounge but the breakfast was actually great. There is a selection of various Asian dishes with a live cooking station where you can get all your egg dishes – in case there was someone attending […]

Huge buffet with quite a good selection and value for money: Restaurant Kitchen 12 @ Sheraton Grand Taipei (27. May 2017)

After travelling basically for 24 hours you do not really care where you eat or what you eat but luckily the hotel I was staying at, the Sheraton Grand Taipei, had a restaurant on the ground floor which was open at 3:30pm (all others open at 6pm) called ‘Kitchen 12’. Well, I did not really […]

Former St. Regis but not at the top of its glory anymore: Restaurant Saints @ The Hongta Hotel, A Luxury Collection (27. May 2017)

Former St. Regis but not at the top of its glory anymore: Restaurant Saints @ The Hongta Hotel, A Luxury Collection (27. May 2017)

Apparently, the Hongta Hotel was the first St. Regis in Asia – unfortunately, there is not too much of that former glamor left. The hotel itself is definitely functional and I can’t complain about the suite upgrade but you can easily see that the hotel exists already for a couple of years. However, I was […]

Breakfast with perfect harbour view: Restaurant Harbour Club Kitchen (20. May 2017)

Breakfast with perfect harbour view: Restaurant Harbour Club Kitchen (20. May 2017)

The entrance to the Harbour Kitchen Club is quite well hidden – as they are currently renovating parts of the entrance, you have to walk down a narrow corridor before you finally enter the restaurant. And after you’ve been asked for your room number, you get to enter a restaurant which is located right next […]

Improved food offer compared to previous visits: Sheraton Club Lounge @ Sheraton Lisbon (13. May 2017)

Each time I’ve been to the Sheraton Club Lounge in the previous three years, I was a bit disappointed of the selection of small dishes they’ve had. But this time, it was somehow a bit different. For dinner they offered a couple of cakes … … a selection of various cheeses … … as well […]

Rather disappointing breakfast: Restaurant Backyard @ aloft San José Hotel (17. April 2017)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant Backyard in the aloft San José is decent – you get everything you need starting with a selection of cereals (rather limited), cold cuts, cheese (doesn’t look too appealing) … … various fresh fruits … … and some warm dishes like sausages, eggs, and pico de gallo. The place […]
