During our stay in Malaysia, we really wanted to see more than just Kuala Lumpur. As we had already been to the Malaysian island of Langkawi a few years ago, this time we opted for the island of Penang. Fortunately, there is also a Hilton Group hotel on the holiday island and so we spent three nights at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Venice - North is only about 30 minutes from the lagoon city of Venice and is therefore a very good starting point for a sightseeing tour. You can find out what you can expect as a hotel or Hilton status guest in the following hotel rating.
The four-star hotel Hilton Munich Park is just a few minutes' walk from the English Garden. We visited the hotel between Christmas and New Year's Eve during the Corona pandemic. You can find out to what extent the Corona rules have affected our stay in the following hotel review.
For our first vacation since the pandemic began, we decided to travel by car. We felt that the situation was just too unsafe for air travel. The decision to go to southern Poland was made very quickly, partly because of the low incidence values. We chose the DoubleTree by Hilton Krakow as the starting point for our trips and were curious to see what the four-star hotel offered in this situation.
We chose the northern Italian city of Turin as our destination for a weekend together. With the DoubleTree by Hilton Turin Lingotto, we decided on a hotel fairly quickly. This is only 10 minutes by car from the city center and was therefore perfect for our city trip. We were also interested in the hotel as it was designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano in the former Fiat factory.
After a strenuous summer at work, we really wanted to relax and fly in the sun in September. But not so far this time. Therefore we decided on Greece, more precisely on Thessaloniki. We chose the 5-star all-inclusive TUI BLUE Lagoon Princess. For us it was the first time for a holiday just beach, pool, food and drink. You can find out how we liked it and whether we would do it again here in the hotel rating.
When we were looking for a good hotel for our Chicago city trip, we came across the Hilton Chicago. You can find out whether the luxury hotel on Michigan Avenue was a good choice in our hotel rating.
The four-star Hotel Hilton Mainz is located directly on the banks of the Rhine and borders on the picturesque old town. In 2012 it was extensively renovated. Thanks to a generous room upgrade, we spent the second weekend in July in a stylishly furnished junior suite with a view of the Rhine.
For our weekend trip to Vienna we were looking for a hotel in a central location. The selection was large, as the Hilton Group alone has four hotels in its portfolio. Since we had already stayed at the Hilton Vienna Danube Waterfront a few years ago, this time we decided on the Hilton Vienna Park. You can find out in this hotel review whether that was a good choice and what our biggest room upgrade to date turned out to be.
Es ist kein Geheimnis, dass Skandinavien oft unschlagbare Flugangebote bietet. Dank eines erstaunlichen Preisfehlers hatten wir das Glück, Business Class Tickets für unseren Flug nach Seattle zu ergattern. Da eine rechtzeitige Anreise nach Oslo unerlässlich war, entschieden wir uns, eine Nacht im Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport (Gardermoen) zu verbringen. In diesem Hotelreview teilen wir unsere Erfahrungen mit diesem erstklassigen Flughafenhotel.
Auf dem Weg in die Schweizer Alpen wollten wir unbedingt einen Zwischenstopp einlegen. Da ich während meines Studiums neun Monate in Nürnberg gearbeitet hatte, bot es sich an, die Stadt noch einmal zu besuchen. Überraschenderweise fand ich das Hilton Nürnberg zu einem sehr günstigen Preis. Welchen Eindruck wir von dem Hotel hatten, erfahrt ihr in diesem Bericht.
Wir sind leidenschaftliche Snowboarder und haben die Alpen schon oft im Winter erkundet. Doch dieses Mal wollten wir die Region im Sommer erleben. Die Alpen bieten eine Fülle exklusiver Hotels in Österreich und der Schweiz, aber Kettenhotels sind eher rar. Unsere Wahl fiel auf das Hilton Garden Inn Davos, und in diesem Hotelreview teilen wir unsere Erfahrungen und Eindrücke mit euch.
Wir hatten Tickets für die Frequent Traveler University (FTU) gewonnen, die vom 10. bis 12. Juni 2016 in Berlin stattgefunden hat. Bei der FTU gab es im Rahmen von Vorträgen interessante Einblicke in verschiedene Kundenbindungsprogramme von Hotels & Fluggesellschaften. Veranstaltungsort war das Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade. Da lag es nahe, auch ein Zimmer für zwei Nächte in diesem Hotel zu buchen.
Our second hotel on the island of Langkawi was the Berjaya Langkawi Resort. When we arrived at 2 p.m., our room or the Rainforest Chalet we had booked was not yet ready. The process at reception was very unprofessional for a 4-star hotel and took forever. Maybe we were just unlucky with the staff.
