Riad La Caleche, Marrakech, Morocco
6.0
4th Oct 2013

I have rated everything average here as we did not actually get to stay in Riad La Caleche. Upon arrival at the airport we were taken to a man who told us that the Riad was full as they had overbooked and they were offering alternative accomodation. Probably some sort of scam but we looked at the room and it was ok but the main reason we stayed in the alternative accomodation was that it was so much closer to everything that Riad La Caleche would be. Just be mindful when booking.

30th Sep 2013

This is a lovely and clean little Riad with a small terrace with views over Tangier. The terrace would be a lot nicer if there were somewhere to sit and enjoy the sun. Staff are wonderful and helpful and the rooms are cleaned every day. It is a quiet place with a small breakfast served every morning and overall great value.

Dar Rabha, Fez, Morocco

26th Sep 2013

This is a great place to stay when visiting Fes. The owner is so passionate about it and will do anything to help you. A full breakfast is provided every morning, guides are offered, map provided, advice given and the rooms and the Riad are both lovely for what you pay. There is a small covered terrace with nice seating and the owner organised a shesha there for our last night. Definitely book with these if you're looking for a great value place to stay.

Dam Square Experience, Amsterdam, Netherlands
6.3
18th May 2013

Overall a totally average stay. If you don't have high standards and are more concerned about location then this is a great place to stay - smack bang in the middle of Amsterdam. However, the cleanliness of the apartment was a little questionable and overall it did look a bit tatty and worn out.. It is of similar quality to many hostels I have stayed in around the world. ONE KEY is given for all guests which can be a nightmare if you want to do different things.

Hotel San Pawl, St Pauls Bay, Malta
7.3
26th Aug 2011

I thought this hotel was good value for what you pay. Included was a buffet breakfast and also evening entertainment. The quality of both of these was questionable at times but if you remind yourself of the price of the accomodation then it's great. The hotel iteslf is about a 10 min walk from the seafront but the best sights of Malta are not in St Paul's Bay! The rooms were clean and serviced every day and the pool area was also clean - although the pool water was salty (?!) Overall, thumbs up.

Good place to stay for a one nighter. The room was very clean and had everything you need. The shared toilet however was a bit neglected. Staff were very friendly and for a budget room this is definitely somewhere I would stay again. I have seen a lot worse!

Oasis Hotel Luxor, Luxor, Egypt
7.7
12th Oct 2010

This hostel has a lovely roof top where you can relax and get away from it all. The staff can organise trips around Luxor pretty much at the drop of a hat - i arrived at midnight and they got me on a trip for 8am the next morning! The rooms are clean enough and the staff are very helpful. BEWARE - there is another Oasis hotel that tries to steal their customers so make sure you have got the right one if they collect you from the airport/train station.

Invitation Hotel, Cairo, Egypt

10th Oct 2010

You get what you pay for with this hostel. It's right next to the Egyptian museum and the staff can organise trips to the pyramids, dinner cruise on the nile etc. They can be a little pushy and it can all get a little confusing so maybe have in mind exactly what you want to see before you get there. It's not a problem though if you don't want to do their tours. I did a day trip of the pyramids for 170EGP and I got my own driver which took me to each site. Again, the pushy sales but that will happen anywh

9th Oct 2010

This was a great place to stay. It is not right on the seafront and is a taxi ride away but this is no problem at all - Desi, a lovely Italian girl who runs the guest house organises safe transport to and from Sharm el Sheikh or Naama Bay. The airport pick up is also very reliable! The guest house consists of just 4 rooms and is a perfect, peaceful sanctuary after a crazy day! It is decorated beautifully and has a real "personal touch" as well as being extremely clean. If you are looking for a peacefu

HI - Boston Downtown, Boston, USA

24th Jun 2006

overall this hostel satisfied the relevant criteria but a few tings i have to point out; 1 it was full of children which i do not agree with at all in a hostel. they were noisey and disrespectful. 2 i was told to wear MORE clothes whilst in reception! i was wearing a pair of shorts which were not particularly revealing. 3 the hostel does offer nights out every day of the week but if you do choose to stay in the building at night you will probably feel mor elike youre in a nazi camp. dont let this put you off though! its a really convenient place to stay and the free breakfast sets you up for the day!

suzy is fantastic. i often hear of places being described as "home away from home" and they rarely turn out to be that way, whereas this place was! i really could have stayed for longer. good prices, lots of help with anything you need and good location too. it really shows how much effort is put into making this place work. *free breakfast and water too*! cant beat that! i will definitely come back here when i return to the gorgeous kuala lumpur. stephen
