Yotel Gatwick – great if you want to be close to the terminal – R: 5/6

25 Jun

Stayed at Yotel Gatwick @ Gatwick Aiport one night in late 2011.
The bad: There is absolutely no privacy. And no space to move.
The good: Totally awesome not having to plan for hours when to get up in order to catch bus/tram/taxi to the airport.

My rating: 5/6
…Cozy, and fully useful. I would go back! I am in general sickly worried about not waking up early enough to work, appointments, and other engagements, so this on-set-hotel is perfect for a wreck like me.


One night in Thalang, Phuket

14 Mar

The beach Nai Yang was recommended to us by our hotel staff and said to be clean. I’m sure it was and the waters were tempting, but the waves were rough that day so we got up almost right away.

Phuket Airport Hotel was actually pretty decent for one night. The staff was very helpful, the pool was nice, and the rooms a bit ugly, but clean. I’m usually¬†fussy, but we paid almost nothing for this and wanted to be near the aiport, and the beds were comfortable.

A taxi to Phuket center cost about 600 BHT so we dined about 5 minutes away from the hotel, at a local pizza restaurant. The salami pizza was quite good, and you can choose soft or hard crust.
