Review Ibis Frankfurt Airport / Kelsterbach

In late May I was flying to Bangkok (BKK) from Frankfurt (FRA) on a cheap Gulf Air fare via Bahrain (BAH). Unfortunately I was at the other side of Germany and the flight left rather early in the morning, too early to make it to Frankfurt on the same day.

While I would have loved to fly from an airport near to where I was, that doesn’t work as Germany has basically only two points from where to fly to Asia which is Frankfurt and Munich. To make sure I would be at the airport on time I decided to stay nearby the night before.

Service review at B&B Hotels Germany

B&B Hotels is a relatively new hotel chain in Germany aiming to capture the market segment of budget conscious travellers that look for an overall decent standard and amenities.

While the Ibis brand is more catering to budget travel the rates for all hotels in Prague during my stay were off the charts and as I just wanted to get an impression of this vibrant city I gave the Ibis a try.

Review Pullman Dresden Newa Classic Room

I have stayed in the Pullman Dresden Newa once before and wrote a review about the suite back then. For a quick two nights stay in this May I returned to Dresden and stayed once again at the Pullman.

As the hotel itself didn’t change since my last stay I will just keep this short and focus on the room itself. The Pullman is right behind the central station and extremely convenient to walk in the city centre and to the main attractions of Dresden.
