REVIEW – Park Hyatt Kyoto
Overall there's no question that Park Hyatt Kyoto is a wonderful property. It is steeped in history, offers wonderful service, it has a rooftop bar, a Michelin starred restaurant and the hardware and finishes are some of the best I've ever seen in any hotel. However, this hotel is not for everyone. I'm personally not convinced that being this centrally located in Higashiyama is actually particularly desirable or that the trade off in terms of the loss of room size and facilities is worth it. If you have any mobility issues or if you're travelling with children, the interior layout is also sure to become tedious very quickly.

REVIEW – Mandarin Oriental Santiago
I don't think there's any doubting that this is the best hotel in Barcelona but the value proposition is a little hard to justify, particularly when rooms at the newly refurbished Intercontinental are 1/3 of the price or less.

Belmond VSOE - Grand Suite Budapest
REVIEW – Belmond VSOE (Orient Express)
Belmond’s Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is the epitome of golden age glamour, a journey back to an enchanted time in which train travel was a momentous event. The Jean Imbert cuisine is as good as anything you could expect to eat in a top restaurant in Paris and the service is incredibly polished and professional. Although the richly historical setting is not for everyone, for those who yearn to experience a luxurious voyage into the past, there's really nothing that compares to this.
