Rated Hotels on Enjoy Food & Travel 2010

  1. Stanhope Hotel, Brussels: BBBBB- (4,82 points)When visiting Brussels in December 2010, I stayed at Hotel Stanhope, described as a boutique hotel decorated in English Country style. It certainly deserved all its five star rating, and it was the best hotel I stayed in in 2010.

  2. Eden Andalou Spa & Resort, Marrakech: BBBBB- (4,68 points)
    Professionally run Resort and Spa Hotel at an unbeatable price. One of my best hotel experiences for years. Several restaurants and bars, pools and beautiful garden - a true garden of Eden.

  3. Hotel Armada, Istanbul: BBBB+ (4,43 points)
    Terrific location, good service, and a great breakfast buffet was offered at Armada Hotel. Newly decorated and immaculately cleaned and maintained. Armada Hotel is recommended by Enjoy Food & Travel.

  4. Radisson Blu Hotel Scandinavia, Gøteborg: BBBB+ (4,30 points)
    Still a great hotel in downtown Göteborg. Service in the bar has room for improvement, and I found the beds too hard for my taste. Dust in the room, minor needs maintenance and uncleaned windows led to a lower rating as well.

  5. Comfort Hotel Trondheim, Trondheim: BBBB (4,03 points)
    Comfort Hotel Trondheim is a brand new hotel in the middle of the city. High tech, modern interior, relatively small rooms at a decent price. The hotel has few facilities and the breakfast could have been better.

  6. Quality Hotel Grand, Kongsberg: BBBB (3,84 points)
    I looked forward to revisit Quality Hotel Grand in Kongsberg, as I remember it to be a well run hotel. Even though I got a large suite, I am afraid to say that it did not add up to a grand score. There were a few details that spoiled the experience.

  7. Clarion Hotel Tyholmen, Arendal: BBBB- (3,60 points)
    Prime location in the old part of Arendal and just by the water. We had decent sized room with a view over the Arendal city fjord. Few inhouse facilities offered to paying guests. Clarion Tyholmen Hotel is overpriced compared to what is delivered.

  8. Thon Hotel Polar, Tromsø: BBB (3,15 points)
    Thon Hotel Polar offers good location and decent service to those of you visiting Tromsø, Norway. My room was small, badly furnished and dated and bath / shower room was in need of serious renovation. Average breakfast and satisfactory for those of you that just want to eat, but it had not that little extra to those of use regarding the first meal of the day as a feast.

Other hotel stories on Enjoy Food & Travel 2009
  1. Albergo Chiusarelli Hotel, Siena
    Ten years ago I had my first, and until now only trip to Italy. We started in the Cinque Terre area, then we traveled on to Florence and Siena in Tuscany, and ended up in Bergamo by the Dolomite mountains. After staying in a very spartan room in a 500 year old Florentine Palazzo, we stayed four nights in the cool elegance provided by Albergo Chiusarelli Hotel in Siena.
