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.

Review Pullman Jing’an Shanghai

For a quick business trip I recently had to spend two nights in Shanghai where I had the chance to spend two nights at the former Grand Mercure Shanghai Central that just recently rebranded to the Pullman Shanghai Jing’an, named after the area it is located in.

While this was just a short stay and I partially paid by points I do like and prefer the Pullman brand in general so I had a certain expectation in terms of style and service. I left Shanghai with somewhat mixed feelings about this property, that does not really fit into the Pullman brand as of now.

Review Pullman Saigon suite

Since I am a frequent visitor to Ho Chi Minh City, very much like Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, I do have a favourite hotel in Vietnams biggest city where I spend most of my stays at.

The Pullman Saigon was opened just a few years ago, hence it is one of the most modern hotels in the city and located in the CBD at the border of district 1, still close to the center but also convenient to go in the surrounding districts.

Review Pullman Dresden Newa

During my summer trip to Germany in 2015 I spent one night in the Pullman Dresden Newa, which is a 4-star property centrally located in Dresden. Due to it’s central location in the historic part of the city the Pullman is a good base for both shopping and sightseeing.

Right opposite the Pullman Accor also built a much larger Ibis that features a solid 3-star product, to offer a more budget friendly option to travellers looking for the same central location as the Pullman.

Review Pullman Jumeirah Lakes Towers Dubai

During my recent business trip to Dubai I opted to stay at the Pullman Jumeirah Lakes Towers as I had several meetings around Dubai Marina and this property seemed to be the Accor 5-star property with the best value for money.

The hotel is conveniently in walking distance of Dubai Marina mall and parts of Dubai Marina (granted that depends on how much you are accustomed to the climate in the UAE) and roughly 40 minutes drive from the airport. While the hotel offers a pick-up service for AED200, which I used due to scheduled late arrival at DXB, I do think it is a better option to use uber or Careem. Alternatively Nakheel station of the red MRT line is right in front of the hotel (price from the airport with nol card will be around AED10) which is fine during off-peak only!

Pullman Riga Old Town

After arriving at Riga international airport (RIX) with airBaltic this December I made my way down into the old town of Riga to check-in at the Pullman Riga Old Town. I booked the hotel with my LeClub points as a short pre-xmas vacation, since I have never been to Eastern Europe I thought it could be nice to check it out.

Prior to arrival I requested the hotel via email to quote airport pickup for me, I never received a reply from them which turned out to be the start into a stay with one of the most terrible experience I ever had at any hotel, let alone a 5* accor property.
