[Hotel Review] Swissotel The Stamford – Executive King

I ‘ve been questioned about my choice of birthday staycation at this property as I work in essentially the same building.

Well, first, this represented a good value with my Accor Plus Sta Plus benefit, having to only top up $90++ for 2pax for an Executive King room which includes access to Level 65, their interpretation of a Club Lounge. Secondly, the entire property has been recently refurbished and I always had a semi fetish for checking out “new” hotels.

So with that, the stay was locked down for checking in on my birthday. Celebrating my big 4. Yays?

The only Conrad I’ve ever stayed in was in Singapore.

So Conrads have been on my wishlists ever since I got my Diamond. Yays to lounge access and room upgrades! And this fell nicely into my atas trip itenary so I was super psyched to try this at seemingly 50% off during the 100hr flash sale.

Address – 10 Gukjegeumyung-ro Yeouido Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul,07326, South Korea. Website.

[Hotel Review] Ibis Styles Sapporo

This was the last night of of guided Hokkaido tour and boy am I glad that we were placed here! Apart from feeling like a whale from the 7days of non stop eating, maximum sleeping, and minimum walking, I managed to collect enough braincells to take pictures and remember sufficient details for a review.

[Hotel Review] The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

I was part of a 7D6N guided tour in Hokkaido and this was the ‘star’ hotel of the trip – and rightfully so! Beautiful hotel grounds both inside and outside :).

The hotel is under SPG’s portfolio (Sheraton I think?) and I was skeptical that the property would be nice based on some pics I saw online but my worries turned out unfounded after all.

[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Puteri Habour


(some pics are from my first visit as pretty much nothing has changed)

This Jan 2016 (sorry slow review I know) is my second visit to the property – the first was when it was still a Traders back in 2014. I was looking for a chillax getaway with mum just for 2D1N and we didnt want a city-ish hotel so I decided to try this again and see what has changed now that its a Jen. I later found out…..nothing much actually haha.

Ramblings of a hotel fusspot

Wait, I am not fussy about hotels as in the I-need-to-be-treated-like-a-queen way. But I definitely am fussy. About erm most things haha. I hope I am not alone in this.

The sole reason why I hated chalets was because of the grimy / sandy floors, the thing that they call a bed, icky bedsheets, and god-knows-how-long-it-has-gone-uncleaned toilets. I mean, I love the bonding spirit and all – but I think bonding happens better for me when I’m actually in a nice clean place.
