Sari Ater Hotel & Resort: Natural Hot Springs in West Java, Indonesia - Indonesia

Sari Ater Hotel & Resort: Natural Hot Springs in West Java, Indonesia

Who doesn’t love natural hot springs? Getting deep into natural hot springs is one way to relax, which was also the main reason I decided to go to Ciater for my recent staycation. Although Ciater is not too far from Bandung, I honestly couldn’t remember the last time I went there before my staycation. But I know Ciater is known to be one of the best natural hot springs in West Java, Indonesia.

I know I had been there a few times when I was a child, and I went there with my girlfriends once when we were at the university, but that was all about it. And that’s also the reason why I decided to book a one-night stay at Sari Ater Hotel and Resort in Ciater.

Cihan Palas Yeni Hotel: A Budget-Friendly Hotel in Ankara, Turkey

Cihan Palas Yeni Hotel: A Budget-Friendly Hotel in Ankara, Turkey

Writing a review of Cihan Palas Yeni Hotel, the budget-friendly hotel where I stayed in Ankara, was long overdue as I got super packed after publishing my review on the sleeper train from Istanbul Halkali to Ankara Gar last month.

It was my first time in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey (officially known as Türkiye these days), and I honestly didn’t expect much from the city since I imagined Ankara would be a typical capital city almost everywhere in the world: with so many things going on that it comes off as borderline boring.

In this post, I’m going to write specifically about Cihan Palas Yeni Hotel, the hotel where I spent 3 nights in Ankara. It was also the first time I booked accommodation with the “room assigned on arrival” option on Agoda, so I will share my two cents about the booking process, the hotel, and my stay at the property.

So, how was Cihan Palas Yeni Hotel in Ankara?

Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro Novi Sad

Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad

One thing I noticed when I started looking for accommodation to stay in Novi Sad is that the rate is slightly higher than most places in Serbia, even the capital city in Belgrade. I wasn’t picky when it came to accommodation, so I booked a single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Apartmani Amaro is the second accommodation that I booked through Agoda in Serbia after Apartmani Vasic in Banja Koviljaca. But I found booking Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad more straightforward than the latter, as Apartmani Amaro allowed us to proceed with the online payment through Agoda.

In this post, I’m going to share a review of my experience when I stayed in the single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad on New Year’s Eve. I got connected with a girl in Novi Sad through Couchsurfing who kinda gave me some hope to have someone to spend the New Year’s Eve together, but she kinda ditched me so I ended up doing nothing in my room to welcome 2022 there.

So, how was my experience staying at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad? Here we go!

The Overview of Hotel Prices That You Need to Know

The Overview of Hotel Prices That You Need to Know

Pricing significantly impacts any consumer business, but it is essential for companies operating in fiercely competitive sectors like the hotel and travel sectors. The strain is constantly on to get room rates correct in the case of hotels because rivals maybe just next door. This puts pressure from both a revenue and guest perspective.

If your business is to prosper, you must constantly focus on giving customers value for their money while trying to keep your bottom line consistent and prevent being undercut by rivals (or undercutting yourself). It will probably fail if a strong foundation of planning and strategy isn’t used to drive hotel pricing. Maintaining an ideal hotel pricing strategy requires real-time data collection and close attention to the market and internal business changes.

Accommodation in Edirne: Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel & Ponsetya Restaurant

Accommodation in Edirne: Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel & Ponsetya Restaurant

If there’s anything that I’ve learned from visiting Edirne, it is the fact that Agoda doesn’t have too many accommodation options in the city. As an avid Agoda user, I decided to just book the first accommodation option that I got on the app, and it was Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel.

When I checked their rating, it was 9 out of 10 so I guest Cavit Duvan Prestige is one of the recommended hotels to stay in Edirne. The room photos that I saw on Agoda also helped me decide to stay there for the three nights I was there.

In this post, I’m going to highlight the pros and cons of staying at Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel in Edirne and share my experience of having dinner at Ponsetya Restaurant, the restaurant on their rooftop that is named to be the best rooftop restaurant in town.

So, how was it? Check this out! 🙂
