    Taking a  city break can be pretty hard on your finances; not only do you have to fork out money on travel and accommodation, but you’ll naturally want to sample the cuisine too, and that’s before you even start to think about visiting places of interest or night time entertainment. However, there are ways to save some money if you’re savvy about it and can plan well ahead before you leave. Also there are often alternative things to see and do that cost a lot less than more commercialised attractions, so look out for those too. For example, if you were planning to visit…

    To the fans of all things extraterrestrial, this one's for you. We kick off this special edition of Funky Friday by saying this may be light years away (aka, not gonna happen,) but if your network of SciFi buddies pitches in, you may just see the opening of The UFO Hotel.Is anyone surprised? We figured it was only a matter of time before there would be a close encounter of the hotel kind. Except that this kind involves some home grown alien crowd-funding. The UFO Hotel is the brainchild of Luis Ramallo, UFO enthusiast and owner of popular road stop Alien Fresh Jerky in Baker, California.

And then we realized that Kandy is actually a place in the middle of Sri Lanka, and it was all going to be OK. OZO Kandy is actually the first hotel to open in Kandy in 20 years (and the last international brand in 35 years). It has 122 rooms, which look rather budget chic – small but well done with local-inspired artwork over the beds and crisp materials and colors.

    Another day, another smashing hotel opening. Today it’s the turn of the Murat Reis in Ayvalik, Turkey - a project so new that the website is still under construction. The hotel has opened with 91 rooms for a look that it describes as “modern with a Mediterranean accent”. And it’s pretty lush and beach-ready – look at those Travertine floors and matching headboards, the striped linen (why do we never see striped linen in hotels?) and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the beach.

  • Buffer and the new Pinterest Integration for Innkeepers, Is it worth a look?

    Chef Forfeng
    5 May 2015 | 12:06 pm
    In my opinion Pinterest is still one of the fastest growing social media networks that Innkeepers should have a presence on, and Buffer (Bufferapp.com) one of my favorite pre-scheduling tools out there. I am a big fan of the free version, up to 3 social media accounts and up to 10 pre scheduled posts. I have been on the fence for awhile about upgrading to the awesome plan (12 social media profiles and pre-scheduling up to 200 posts at a time). The Pinterest/Buffer integration may just put me over the edge where I decide to upgrade ($10.00 a month). Buffer is letting people sign up for the…

Firmdale Hotels has recently introduced karaoke to the Soho Hotel and its newest London property, the Ham Yard Hotel. But this isn’t quite ordinary karaoke, as it comes with a cool modern twist.

    London has long since been thought of as a city of sophistication, style and diversity, but how did it become the capital we all know and love? The answer is surprisingly multi-faceted- a good mix of historical dates and contemporary ideas, and the story began way back in Celtic times. A brief history London was founded by the Celtic King Lud, who must have been an incredibly humble man to have named the site after himself! ‘Caer Lud’ was what we now know as South Wark – the south side of the river Thames. Proof of this early discovery has been backed up through the…
