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?
