The list continues…you can see also check out the first part of my favourite hotels list including hotels from Scandinavia, Kenya and United States. This list covers hotels from Japan, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy and Thailand.
The layout of this hotel reminds me of the motel where the movie the Identity took place. It looks more like a motel rather than a motel. Quirky decoration and colors but more importantly, a 24 hours open coffee house is attached to the hotel. It comes very handy if you did not yet beat your jet-lag. Very reasonably prices – yet sufficiently well designed and walking distance to major Vancouver attractions.
It probably rarely gets any more Londoner than this hotel. I am not a fan of London but sure a fan of this hotel located in South Kensington. It has a nice little sitting area downstairs where you can also enjoy some drinks in an absolute British environment.
If you are going to Venice, you should consider staying in Padova which is 25 minutes train ride away from Venice. Much cheaper accommodation, nice little town but more importantly – amazing quality/price parity for Italy. When I travel to Venice, I always stay at this hotel and go on day trips to Venice on a train and if I stay long enough, I usually spend a lazy day in Padova, both enjoying its small town charm and the amazing Belludi 37. Even the tiniest rooms in Belludi 37 has a proper desk that you can use to work, photo editing or whichever way you want, which makes it a really ideal base for me and the hotel also has a great breakfast.
At the quite end of Koh Phangan, this is a great beach retreat. Spacious rooms and very tranquil environment. As we are walking about Thailand, I don’t need to say how nice the entire hotel staff is. You can also rent a long tail boat right from the hotel and go to the Bottle Beach, which is a quite and more hipster type beach for those who want to get a feeling of the movie the Beach.
In Meguro neighbourhood of Tokyo, Meguro is a great find from Tablet Hotels. Very stylishly design and has good food facilities and an amazing online store where you can buy good priced handmade goods (bags etc.). This hotel reminded a lot of Anteroom in Kyoto as it is again not in the most central part of the city but still easily accessible and with a great price for a quality of its level. I assume you also have your own favourite hotels and it would be great if you can share it on the comment section so we all help out each other and form a big list of our favourites.
