  • 1. Hotel Les Jardins du Marais
    Hotel Les Jardins du Marais, Paris, Ile-de-France

    Excellent choice! Location, rooms, metro next door, friendly and efficient service

  • 2. Transfer Naples - Amalfi

    Great service, right on time, air-conditioned car, classy guy, excellent driver!

  • 3. Hotel Bellevue Suites
    Hotel Bellevue Suites, Amalfi, Amalfi Coast

    Superb hotel, can't wait to go back

  • 4. Hotel Sallustio
    Hotel Sallustio, Rome, Lazio

    One of our less successful bookings - the air conditioning did not work, the room was too small even for our modest expectations, and the breakfast was dreadful.

  • 5. A Florence View B&B
    A Florence View B&B, Florence

    Another misnomer - the location is even better than advertised - you can almost touch the Baptistery from the window. But the appartment wasn't a real 2 bedroom as we requested but rather a 1 bedroom and ante-chamber with no window, no air conditioning, VERY noisy, and a squeaky toilet door. The bed was for the young and fit and the smell of mildew triggered the allergies.

  • 6. Ai Pini
    Ai Pini Park Hotel, Mestre

    One of our favorites! The bus going to Venice stopped right outside. The service was superb, no, even better than superb, we were amazed! Not only efficient and helpful, but truly friendly and kind. The rooms were great. The breakfast was so exceptional, we even came back to the hotel for supper, and loved that too!

  • 7. Arlette Am Hauptbanhof Hotel
    Arlette Am Hauptbanhof Hotel, Zurich

    What a great hotel! Very close to the railway station, superb rooms, great if somewhat reserved service (they even gave each of us an umbrella for our trip to Lucerne on a rainy day), excellent breakfast.

  • 8. Des Negociants
    Hotel Restaurant Les Negociants, Vevey, Canton of Vaud

    Affordable hotel in Vevey. Great location, OK service, Internet access from the room, fair restaurant. Bring the earplugs - the noise is brutal!

  • 9. Grand Hotel Lyon
    B4 Lyon, Lyon, Rhone

    Great old hotel. Aging but fun. Be careful - breakfast is not included, but you will only find that out when the charges are applied att he check-out :)
    Service efficient but somewhat snotty

  • 10. Lyon Bastille Hotel
    Hotel Lyon Bastille, Paris, Ile-de-France

    Affordable hotel near Gare de Lyon. 2 stars, somewhat depressing facilities, but the room was OK, and the service was friendly and helpful.
