Hoxton Shoreditch hotel has been a very well known and situated hotel in London’s fast growing, “coolest” area – Shoreditch. It’s been only 1 year ago that the hotel got completely revamped and is at the moment one of the top hip places to hang out at, be it for a precisely made cocktails by the skilful baristas or a work meeting, you might find yourself returning to Hoxton week after week. 🙂 Continue Reading…
How grandiose can be an airport hotel? I have always avoided staying at the airport hotels, unless that was the only option due to my flights either taking off too early or being canceled. Even with that, I have stayed at the airport hotels maybe 3 or 4 times. When I do travel abroad, I’m not your super cool “Airbnb” gal which scores big time some super cool place for the fraction of the price you’d pay for staying at 4 or 5 star hotels. When I travel, I do want to have everything ” top notch ” and feel like I’m treating myself every moment of the trip. Great hotel with the high standard services and policies is one of the major links of making the most of my trip and being 100% satisfied with the money spent on, as I like to say, pure hedonism.
Want to feel like a royalty and have a luxury filled weekend in the heart of Helsinki? Look no further, because hotel Kämp got you all covered on this.

Tämä viiden tähden luxus hotelli, joka sijaitsee vuonna 1887 rakennetussa historiallisessa rakennuksessa. On vain 5 minuutin kävelymatkan päässä monista Helsingin pää nähtävyyksistä kuten: Senaatin tori, Kauppa tori ja Vanha kauppahalli ja Ateneum.

Situated in a small bay of Zecevo, between cities Primosten and Rogoznica, Hotel Life is an ultimate destination for a private getaway from all of the noises and rush of the city life. While the hotel is perfectly tucked away and has one of the most beautiful sea views I’ve ever witnessed in my life, it is still only a short car or bike ride to either of two mentioned cities in which you can get anything you might need, some souvenirs as well as visit some heritage places such as church of Our Lady Of Mercy, chapel of St. Rocco, metal museum/ shop – crafts and souvenirs made out of different metal parts. Very nearby are famous Babich fields where the best wines come from. You can take a tour of Babich vineyards and learn more about the vinery and how the wine is being made.
While in Rogoznica, you can discover some more architectural gems, big marina and as well a natural phenomenon, salt lake called “Dragon’s Eye”.
Hotel has it’s private indoor and outdoor pools, but one of the most “raw” and untouched beaches with the clearest sea is right in front of the hotel.
Besides vicinity of many amazing and traditional restaurants in Primosten and Rogoznica, Hotel Life has it’s own restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. For lunch and dinner you can choose whichever dishes you like from their a-la carte menu. Menu is traditional, based on authentic Dalmatian cuisine with a bit of modern twist.
Hotel Life is a 4 stars, family run business and a lot of care and thought has been put into decoration of the hotel, esp. it’s bedrooms. I loved the fact that all of the rooms were very spacious, modern and had some of my favourite beauty products by Rituals as their toiletries. Rooms are varying from superior room with a sea view to the Presidential apartment of 90m2 which could be a perfect honeymoon suite for instance. 🙂
If you wish to have a relaxing and pampering day at the hotel, it’s very much possible by visiting it’s Finnish sauna or Turkish steam bath as well as taking a massage at the Spa.
One thing which I was very impressed with that all of the staff was very welcoming, pleasant, fully skilled and has met all of my wishes and needs. As somebody who has travelled a lot and have stayed in many different hotels, I find it very important to be happy with your accommodation and hotel’s service. When you’re on a holiday, you want to feel relaxed, safe and welcomed and that is how I felt staying at Hotel Life.

If you’re looking for a perfect “one person” kind of adventure or for a romantic honeymoon destination or maybe a fun holiday spot for a whole family, Croatia should be your 1st choice! I promise, if you do pick Croatia as this Summer’s destination, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

If you wish to visit a small, picturesque and very special city in the middle of Adriatic coast, then look no further, Sibenik will impress you with it’s enchanting narrow, cobble stone streets, wonderful architecture and breathtaking sea views. One of the biggest attractions, cathedral of St. Jacobs which is under protection of UNESCO is def. worth taking a long and thorough look at from the inside as well as on the outside. Besides interesting cathedral, churches, city hall, etc. worth mentioning are fortresses and palaces of Sibenik. One such, Marenci palace is the hero of today’s post. 🙂
Marenci palace used to be one of knight’s palaces, dating from 15th century. It’s complete renovation started back in 2014. and once, long forgotten and barely used palace, turned into a gorgeous, fairytale like hotel.
Hotel Life Palace opened it’s doors to public almost a year ago in the very heart of old town of Sibenik. It has 17 beautifully furnished bedrooms which are all decorated in 15th century vibe paying a tribute to Sibenik’s history and original “function” of the space.
Besides royalty like furnished bedrooms, this boutique hotel has a mini spa with jacuzzi, Finnish sauna and also a lovely cafe with a gorgeous summertime terrace. Cafe serves some of the best cakes you will try anywhere and you can also enjoy a great scoop of Carte D’or ice cream on the terrace. If you’re an early bird, make sure to catch a delicious and healthy breakfast too! 🙂 Starting this month, cafe will be also serving Tapas bites to satisfy some late evening munchie cravings.
Hotel’s walking vicinity to all of the main city’s attractions, shops and restaurants make it your ultimate choice for a hotel to stay at in Sibenik city!!
