Sleeping in airports with Yotel

Sometimes travel can be tiresome, especially if you have a late arriving or early departing flight. If you have ever been to airports at silly o’clock, you’ve probably noticed a fair few travellers curled up on an airport bench, clutching their bags and using hoodies as pillows. Not the most comfortable of sleeps, but needs must in some situations. In fact, I had the...

36 hours in Gothenburg, Sweden

Gothenburg is a Swedish City I knew very little about. It is a city that is overshadowed by the popular and Capital city of Stockholm, and not often explored or written about.

Hotel style accommodation at YHA Cardiff Central

City breaks are becoming much more common, particularly thanks to bank holidays weekends, providing you with an additional 24hrs to get away.

Staying in an Urban Retreat at the Passage, Basel

City breaks are a great way to see a new country in a short period of time. Cities are a great hub with good transport links, and have a host of activities and culture to explore.  Sometimes it can be difficult to choose where to stay in a city. Many people wish to be in the city centre, and close to transport links and tourist attractions. However, these hotels can...

10 Reasons to visit Gdansk, Poland

“You’re going on holiday to Gdansk in Poland?!” Why? “Not my idea of a holiday destination!” This is a question I faced many times leading up to my trip to the Northern Polish city of Gdansk. In fact, it may have been a statement I would have said myself, some years ago. Poland was never a country that was on my highly desirable list...
