Hotel Review! Apparthôtel Privilodges – Le Royal

Annecy, France, Apparthôtel Privilodges - Le Royal, France, Hotel Reviews, solo traveling, Travel

Apparthôtel Privilodges – Le Royal

Rue Royale, Annecy

Check out the video of my room, link is below. I stayed at the Apparthôtel for 30 days. I loved the hotel staff. They were very helpful to me in many ways, sometimes just for a laugh or a good morning was awesome traveling solo can sometimes be lonely. But I always had someone to help me at this hotel either for asking where to go for dinner or a where to buy a flat iron. Here are my pros and cons for Apparthôtel. The cons were very few!

PROS:

Centrally locate hotel next to entertainment, train station, shopping, restaurants, cinéma, malls and parks

Dog friendly hotel!

So much space in the studio room for lugguage and the Murphy bed that can be stored for lots of extra room.

Helpful, friendly staff

Clean rooms, and nice cleaning staff

Onsite wash machine and dryer

Optional breakfast

After hours number if you get locked out of your room

Cable tv, international networks

Cons:

The Bed is at least a real bed, but it was hard on my back.

There’s no events for guest to mingle, I met some great guest there it would’ve been fun to have some évents.

More diversity among guest if possible, Annecy it’s is not very diverse per se. Staff was diverse but needs improvement

Here’s a short video of my actual room and space:

Moxy Paris Bastille Le Marais

France, Hotel Reviews, Moxy hotel, Paris, Paris, solo traveling, Travel

My 2 week stay at the Moxy hotel was overall lovely.❤

Pros:

Centrally located hotel in the 11arr.

Chic hotel stylish and clean

Friendly and helpful accommodating staff!

New technology big screen TV USB outlets by bed and TV to charge phone

Nice fun events for guest from mixology classes to running events for active guest!

Spacious room options and unique storage options for baggage

Beautiful balcony in rooms and open terrace on top floor

Great lounge/ working space area for guest, I met some Amazing people in the resturant area. Great spot for solo/business travellers to be social.

Dog friendly (*but for a unfriendly price)

Without sounding like a full lush the drink selection and bartenders were the best!!

Cons:

Wish there was more diversity in their advertising and partnerships

Bed was hard on the back but to be fair not many hotels in Europe have good beds. It was at least a Real bed. I’ve stayed in a lot this was among the better of the hard beds. Do yoga

Limited menu but everything I tried was good

Despite the bed I wanted to stay longer 2 weeks was not enough!

All my bags and a fabulous first meal from The Moxy Resturant

Fish Spa In Marseille!

France, Marseille, Out and About with Tina, Spa

I went to the fish spa in Marseille! I was so excited to try this for the first time. It’s a pedicure but with fish eating off all the dead skin. The owner opened the shop just for me and served me wine and bottled water. The hospitality was so spectacular you must visit the O Lounge Fish Spa the next time you’re in Marseille! My feet feel soft and new. I’m so glad I got an opportunity to go while in Marseille, France for the weekend.

I asked the owner how did he come up with the idea to open a shop like this? He said he was sitting around with some friends and they came up with the idea over drinks and when they decided to open the fish spa his answer was: why not!! Now the shop has been successful since it started two years ago. I love that “why not”! Great quote for entrepreneurs everywhere- Why Not!!

hotel review in Lyon

Check out my hotel room in Lyon!

I love the hotel location of Hotel Du Simplon and the shower head was wonderful. That sounds steamy pun intended its was just a nice shower good pressure. That’s important.

The hotel Staff is nice. The bed is comfortable for Européen standards… But I I didnt like that everytime my neighbor flushed the toliet in the next room my room sounded like it was flooding, like a tsunami hit France.

they charge around 5 euros per day for my dog, which is not a lot but in hotels I dont think it’s right to call themselves “dog friendly” but then charge extra when they don’t charge extra for people. I would rather leave a nice tip for the cleaning staff but not both. Plus my dog is shaved and trained no extra hair to clean. With that said I would recommend this hotel.

There was a option to inclued a breakfast for 9€ and you can order drinks at the réception desk coffee, juice, tea, etc. I also liked there was a USB charger for my phone on the headboard. The hotel is centrally located a 8 min walk from the bus/ train station Lyon Gare Routière Perrache. Lots of restaurants and things to do close by! There’s also a laundry mat right cross from the hotel, for all the fellow travelers I know how it can be!! There’s a resturant in the hotel and I didn’t get a chance to go but when I arrived whatever they were looking smelled so good I could smell from my room on the first floor!!
