Hotel Sahara Mandalay Review

Before my arrival in Mandalay I did something I don’t do too often, I booked ahead. I booked the Hotel Sahara thanks to a promotion on agoda and its “fantastic” reviews. The hotel is quite easy to find since it is located quite close to the temple and not far away from the clock tower (which is easy to find on maps in case you need to tell the taxi where to go). Upon arrival the welcome by the hotel staff was super friendly. Very nice and helpful. While preparing the…

Sunshine Beach Guesthouse Prachuap Khiri Khan

During our stay in Prachuap Khiri Khan we opted for a reservation prior to our arrival. I don’t do that too often but since a Thai Public Holiday approached we simply didn’t want to spend to much time running around figuring out where to stay. So I checked a few websites and send a few emails. One of the places that responded the fastest (and very polite) was the Sunshine Beach Guesthouse. A quick check of the map showed that it was located close to the beach and even at…

Guesthouse Review: Sunshine Guesthouse Hua Hin

During our short trip to Hua Hin we stayed away from noisy and party heavy Soi 61 but moved down to Soi 65 where the rooms might be a bit more expensive but therefore also more quiet. We ended up here at the Sunshine Guesthouse and had quite a good experience. The Rooms @ Sunshine Guesthouse Hua Hin The rooms are quite decent. The have rooms with a double bed for two persons or even bigger ones for three people. The prices vary from 700 THB (low season, smaller room)…

Hotel Review: Jan Condotel Udon Thani

During my latest visit to my ‘hometown’ Udon Thani I decided to give another accommodation a try. Since I planned on visiting my former college I was looking for something not to far away but also not to far away from the city or recreational spaces like Nong Prajak Park, Thung Sri Muang or markets. Furthermore I didn’t want to spend thousands of Baht since I didn’t plan on staying at my room for most of the time anyways. Entrance: Jan Condotel. Located quite close to Udon Thani Vocational College…

Your House 2 Chiang Mai Traveling 

Guesthouse Review: Your House 2 Guesthouse Chiang Mai

During another pretty cool stay in Chiang Mai I tested another budget guesthouse. I usually never spend much at ‘home’ when I’m in Chiang Mai so budget is the way to go – at least for me. This time I was there with my little sis so we went for a twin room. Here’s the review of Your House 2 Guesthouse Chiang Mai. Atmosphere: They’ve got 3 houses there. Your House 1, Your House 2, Your House 3. Your House 2 is by far the one that looks the most…

Beach View By Beach Resort Koh Samui Traveling 

By Beach Resort Koh Samui – Amazing value for money.

Finally I made it to Koh Samui and since I was traveling with my little sister who visited me for three weeks over here I did something I don’t do very often in Thailand: I booked in advance via agoda.com. The guesthouse I booked was the By Beach Resort and it was, by far, the best place I ever stayed in at this point! Me and my sister (17) travelled on a budget as backpackers and where looking for something that most backpackers want. Close to the beach and affordable. By…

Hotel Review: Infinity Resort Koh Tao

This is going to be a short review since talking about that place is actually not really worth it. The pictures don’t look bad but that’s exactly why I went there and was so disappointed. I was looking for a place to stay that is a) close to the beach and b) after a long trip to the island not toooo basic. According to agoda.com the Infinity Resort matched those requests. As always agoda showed insanely high prices for the accommodation but claimed to have special prices. We all know by…

Hotel Review – Sritrakarn Hotel Udon Thani

During my comeback to Udon Thani the past long weekend I tried another hotel and chose the Sritrakarn Hotel for my stay. Before we get into the in depth personal opinion let’s see the neutral rating: Location: Awesome. Right next to the bus station and Central Plaza. Going out in UD Town at night? Shopping at Central during the day, taking a bus somewhere? Everything’s fine and easy to manage. Great spot! Staff: Overall friendly and able to speak decent English. However with a negative touch in the end as…

Hotel Review: iHouse – New Hotel – Vientiane

During my last Visa Run to Vientiane, Laos I decided to take on a new accommodation and after coming across a web promotion on agoda I chose iHouse – New Hotel as my destination.

So the plan. So, once more, let’s check my latest accommodation My-Thai style: Location: The location is pretty cool! Quite close to Namphu –…

Hostel Review: Thara House – Bangkok

Time for another accommodation review. A few days ago I happened to stay in Bangkok once again and, after some time, I chose a destination close to Khaosan Road. After having spent the last visits in Hua Lamphong I simply wanted to go back there since I missed…not Khaosan….but the ferry boats that leave from the nearby Phra Attit Pier. This time I chose the Thara House as my home base and was, well, not that satisfied. However the nice things first: The rooms are nice and tidy. Nothing to…
