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!

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! 🙂

The Dorm Cave by Travellers: A Budget-Friendly Hotel in Cappadocia

The Dorm Cave by Travellers: A Budget-Friendly Hotel in Cappadocia

I didn’t get a chance to visit Cappadocia at the best time it could offer for travelers, but luckily I got an opportunity to stay at one of the best budget-friendly cave hotels in the area despite the lousy weather when I was there. In this post, I’m going to review The Dorm Cave by Travellers, the cave hotel where I stayed the night for 3 (three) nights in Goreme.

For those who have read some other hotel reviews that I wrote in this blog, you may probably know that I didn’t need much for accommodation. I’m a pretty price-sensitive customer, so budget-friendly is a must for me in choosing a place to say during my trip. Other than that, as long as the place is convenient to crash for a couple of nights and I can have enough privacy during my stay, I should be alright.

So, how was my stay at The Dorm Cave by Travellers in Goreme, Cappadocia?

Review: Liva Suite Hotel for a Short Layover in Istanbul

Review: Liva Suite Hotel for a Short Layover in Istanbul

Before I begin writing further about Liva Suite Hotel in Istanbul, I think I want to put some disclaimer about how difficult it is to deal with Agoda’s customer service if you book accommodation through their platform.

This was something that I experienced myself when I booked Family Room at Liva Suite Hotel in Istanbul. My flight with Emirates changed with the result of arrival later than it was scheduled.

My booking at Liva Suite Hotel in Istanbul was already confirmed, and God knows the effort I got to contact Agoda for this change of schedule. It was pointless to even try settling this through their website and app, but I finally could manage to modify my booking when I called their customer service center on their Indonesian phone number.

It was difficult, but at least I didn’t have to cancel my booking for my short layover in Istanbul.

Starlet Hotel Jakarta Airport

Starlet Hotel: A Budget-Friendly Hotel Near Jakarta Airport with Free Shuttle

I wrote about Best Western Premier The Hive the other day, a hotel close to Halim Perdanakusuma airport in Jakarta. And today, I’m going to review a hotel near the airport… But this time, it’s the one that’s located not too far from the main airport in the Greater Jakarta area: Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, all international flights only take place in Jakarta for both departures and arrivals. So if you’re planning to travel internationally to or from Indonesia, you may need some information about a budget-friendly hotel near Jakarta airport.

Since my flight to Dubai the other day was also from Jakarta, and they required a PCR test to travel there, I decided to stay in Jakarta for a couple of days and sort things out there instead of going directly from Bandung as I usually did. And this time, I chose to stay at Starlet Hotel during my stay before the flight.
