Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Yas Island

There is rarely a week that goes by I don’t pass by a Radisson Blu and wish I was staying there at that moment. With so many popping up all over the world, even in some pretty remote places, I’ll always be down to try another location and that is just what I did in Abu Dhabi a couple weeks ago when I tried out the Radisson Blu Yas Island for a quick weekend getaway from my hectic life in Dubai.

Just an hour or so south, Abu Dhabi offers a ton of entertainment, dining and relaxation options many rarely experience as they stick to Dubai and dare not venture outside of the glitz and the glamour. Settled right on a beautiful golf course and right by the coast, the Yas Island location is not only in a scenic and serene setting, it is just steps from Ferrari World, one of the biggest attractions that Abu Dhabi has to offer.

The hotel boasts an impressive lobby, a delicious restaurant with plush outdoor seating, a massive pool area and to top it off, an amazing Belgian Beer Cafe, which I was ecstatic to find – you’d be surprised how hard it is to find a good dark beer in Dubai!

The rooms are light, airy and offer huge balconies overlooking the golf course and pool area. With cast views the area is notably more silent, a welcome relief from busy city life. Rarely did I think how close I was to Dubai, I felt like I was miles away laying in the pool with a cold drink in my hand.

As with all Radisson Blu hotels, the buffet options are absolutely world class, especially their ‘super breakfast’ which rivals any breakfast spread you have ever witnessed. That paired with the available late checkout, always friendly staff and stunning views made the short overnight trip feel like an entire week.

After prying myself away from the scenery and beer cafe it was an easy jump over to the Grand Mosque, one of the most truly stunning buildings I have ever witnessed – even more so than the Taj Mahal. If you are ever in Abu Dhabi forget Ferrari World and head for the mosque, it is well, well worth it – and if you need a comfy place to stay you know where I’ll be.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Diera Creek Dubai

Among the glitz and the glamour of Dubai is the beautiful Dubai Creek, an area just outside the popular downtown section which, if even only a bit, leaves you feeling you’ve seen a bit of the history in Dubai aside from the ultra modern skyscrapers and 5 star hotels which the city is so well known for.

Lined with old wooden shipping boats, the famed Abra’s, which shuttle tourists and locals alike across the creek for 2AED, and the colorful gold and spice souk, the Dubai Creek is also home to some of the best hotels in Dubai. Radisson Blu has a few different locations across the city, but the Dubai Diera Creek location is especially nice.

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 9.28.18 PM

Seemingly small from the outside, the hotel just keeps going and going once you are in. The lobby and rooms maintain an older middle eastern vibe while providing all the modern touches you would expect to find in any hotel. While many chose to stay within the walls of the hotel, know that you are in one of the most colorful areas of the city and take the time to walk out the front door and go get lost, an easy walk to so many fascinating sites, smells and sounds.

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 9.28.37 PM

The rooms are colorful, comfortable and the staff is quick to respond and takes every action to make your stay as comfortable as possible, however the real treat of the hotel are the beds. Radisson Blu has always done an amazing job of having the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on and the Dubai Diera Creek location is no different. Just pull closed those blackout curtains and dissolve into another world!

But before you do… make sure to head up to “Up On The Tenth”, an amazingly relaxed and classy Jazz Bar, aptly up on the 10th floor. The food is absolutely delicious, the music if great and the ambience is utterly relaxing. For a more traditional brew head to the Pub and enjoy a cold one for us.

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 9.32.21 PM

Of course, if you have ever stayed at a Radisson Blu before, you’ll know one of the single best parts of any stay is their “Super Breakfast”, which puts to shame pretty much every single breakfast buffet you have ever seen. Up on the business floor, the breakfast spread has everything you could imagine and is topped off with an elegant theme and gorgeous views over the entire creek with a perfect view of the famed Burj Khalifa in the backdrop, cementing the end to a perfect hotel stay.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Hamburg

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Hamburg .

.

There are few places as beautiful as Europe during the summer, and while it was the tail end of August when we visited Hamburg, the weather was still magnificent as the last few beautiful days of the season passed by. Having loved every single Radisson Blu location we have stayed at in the past, it was a no brainer to head straight for the Radisson Blu Hamburg. While we drove from Berlin for a guys weekend getaway, I was amazed to see the hotel literally a stones throw from the train station, convenient for just about any traveler. We were immediately caught off guard by the beauty and elegance of the lobby area, as it is in stark contrast with the somewhat subdued external facade of the hotel. .

.Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Hamburg..

The hotel staff welcomed us warmly and we always feel more welcome in Radisson Blu locations as they have booths catering to more people checking in rather than one large check in counter, just another small difference that makes the entire hotel experience more enjoyable. Located in the heart of the city and just at the edge of Hamburg’s Central Park, there are endless possibilities walking distance from the hotel. In fact, we only took one cab the entire weekend as everything was a beautiful, short walk away.

Radisson Blu has done an excellent job of extending their comfortable, modern and elegant theme throughout all their locations and Hamburg is no different. Minimally decorated rooms match design elements with all the the amenities of home to give each guest, regardless of room type, a clean, comfortable and elegant stay while not giving up any of the comforts of home. .

.Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Hamburg

 

.

As with all accommodations, it really is the little things that makes the big difference. Free wifi with no sign in, e-mail or login is always appreciated as well as one of Radisson Blu’s signature features, their Super Breakfast, which is always impressive and a welcome relief in a sea of subpar hotel breakfast offerings. I mean who doesn’t get excited when they can start their day off with a visit to a fresh orange juice machine?

Complete with a gym and steam room in their health club, an amazing lobby bar, massive outdoor seating area, world class restaurant “Filini“, an impressive rooftop bar and home to one of the hottest clubs in Europe, “The Room” located in their basement, the Radisson Blu Hamburg simply offers all you could ever dream of in a hotel and does it in the perfect location in one of the most beautiful cities in Northern Europe. .

Restaurant Review: Filini Bar and Restaurant

Restaurant Review: Filini Bar and Resturant

.

.In the last few years we have noticed a great change in hotel dining – the emergence of simply world class dining options as part of the hotel experience. Sure, hotels have offered dining options to their guests since the beginning of time, but we are now at a point where visitors are going out of their way to visit restaurants in hotels, even if it is not the hotel they are staying at. This is exactly the case with Filini, located in the Radisson Blu in Hamburg, Germany. (Read our hotel review HERE.)

.

Restaurant Review: Filini Bar and Restaurant

.

Offering a vast collection of the best Italian offerings you would imagine, Filini offers it’s guest a truly special dining experience whether they are staying at the hotel or not. Rarely would we go out of our way to visit a hotel restaurant, but we would be back at Filini in a heartbeat if we had half the chance. Elegantly themed, Filini offers an authentic feel many Italian restaurants fail to capture.

Nothing over the top, nothing cliche, they let the food do the talking. As with many cuisines, the best way to have an Italian meal is to share everything. We ordered an assortment of appetizers to go along with paired wine suggestions and the freshest of bread and pure, virgin olive oil, straight from Italy.

Filini is constantly whipping up fun and unique drink offerings to pair with some of their seasonal dishes so take a chance and order whatever special cocktail they are offering as you are bound to be pleasantly surprised.

.

Restaurant Review: Filini Bar and Restaurant

.

When it comes to the food, we simply couldn’t find anything that wasn’t out of this world, and believe us we tried. We ordered all of the small appetizers, an assortment of starters and the most tasty looking main dishes. The only problem we had was deciding what was the best. The steak was fresh and moist, the seafood perfectly seasoned, and all the sides were way more than just there to compliment the meal. When you want to have a true dining experience, the most important thing besides the food, is to have a wait staff who truly knows what they are talking about and can help guide your through your meal, all the way from pre dinner drinks through dessert.

We were shocked at how much our waitress knew about the Italian food they offered as well as what paired best with what, which dishes we should all share, and much of the history of the dishes, Italy in general and a deep knowledge of all the wine, beer and spirits that were recommended.

.

Restaurant Review: Filini Bar and Restaurant

.

If you are really looking for an experience to complement your already stellar meal, take the time to try some of their in house grappa, an Italian brandy based liquor which comes in many shapes and sizes. Filini offers a wide variety of grappa to taste, and the knowledge to help it compliment your meal perfectly. We left completely satisfied but not uncomfortable, a big concern when the food was as good as it was. From start to finish, one of the best meals we have had in Europe and better than any Italian food we had in Italy this winter – can’t beat that! .

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

Restaurant Review: Certo, Dubai

.

Dubai is home to some of the best cuisines in the world, and not just the delicious Middle Eastern, Indian and Asian you might expect. While the Middle Eastern food in Dubai is second to none, many travelers come to Dubai to experience it all, both the Western food and culture mixed in with the vast Middle Eastern lifestyle and culture as well. While Italian food might not be your first thought for dinner in Dubai, we were glad we picked Certo for a dinner out on the town and boy was it delicious.

World class restaurants are on almost every single corner in Dubai, and many are located within some of the nicest hotels in the world. Take a minute to seriously plan our your dining in Dubai and what cuisine you want to eat most, as almost anything you could imagine is right at your fingertips.

.

Restaurant Review: Certo, Dubai

.

Located in the Radisson Blu Dubai Media City, Certo is an unassuming restaurant from the outside but absolutely elegant and gorgeous on the inside. While you might not be taking a stroll by the Radisson Blu, think about making a reservation for a meal at Certo if you are craving some absolutely delicious Italian food and a classy and quiet atmosphere.

Decorated with a relaxed and smooth atmosphere in mind, Certo is centered around a gorgeous bar and extremely impressive selection of wine placed in the center of the restaurant. An open kitchen gives diners the opportunity to see exactly how the kitchen is run and how their meals are made, an experience which we always like to see. There is something very nice and comforting about being able to see the clean and organized environment your food is being made in.

Paired with a delicious white wine, we picked our favorite dishes from their impressed and complete Italian a la cart menu. I started off with a delicious spread of beef carpaccio and Marina went straight for the lobster, one of the best dishes we had on our entire trip. The food was fresh, full of flavor, served promptly and artistically displayed.

.

Restaurant Review: Certo, Dubai

.

One of the true fears of any Italian meal is being left uncomfortably full on bread and cheese, which happens more often then not, lets be honest. The dishes at Certo, however, we plenty to fill us up without leaving us feeling stuffed and even left us room for desert, which we simply could not resist. We chose to finish off the meal with a perfect mix of 3 mini offerings of tiramisu, served in perfect bite sized portions – perfect for us to share.

Feeling as though we were in the heart of Italy for the evening we were glad to booked a meal at Certo and would make a point to go back any time we are in Dubai again. Certo also offers some really amazing seasonal and weekly specials including one of the most impressive buffet’s in Dubai and specials featuring amazing dishes prepared around chocolate, berries or wine – all amazing reasons to give Certo a try on your next trip to Dubai.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

.

We have stayed at hotels all over the world and love all different type of accommodations from small boutique hotels to luxury options, family resorts to business hotels. While we are often on the road and still needing to get work done, it was wonderful to check in to a perfect business hotel, the Radisson Blue Dubai Media City and get some work done, relax, and be close to it all in Dubai.

Located right by the JBR beach and and world famous Dubai Palm, the two towers of the Radisson Blu provide the perfect atmosphere for all travelers alike, especially those on business. Complete with multiple swimming pools, restaurants, spa’s and gym’s, the hotel is clean, simple and quiet, all elements we regularly look for in a hotel stay.

.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

.

We opted for the basic room, which provided more than enough room for us as well as all the tech needs we had to unwind and get work done. One of our main pet peeves when traveling is making sure that there are electrical plugs on both sides of the bed, something a shockingly large number of hotels do not have, but Radisson Blu has always has us covered no matter where in the world we are.

Radisson Blu is a brand close to our heart, as all of their locations offer seemingly basic amenities that many brands do not offer standard. Free wifi throughout their hotels, late checkouts, one touch and super breakfast all make our stay more reliable and comfortable no matter where we are, and Dubai Media City was no different.

.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

.

As we were in Dubai in May, the heat was starting to climb and it didn’t take us very long to head to the pool for some relaxation and to cool down a bit. Complete with multiple swimming pools, each building offers the quiet and tranquility we never expected to find in the middle of a major city. We lounged in the sun, took a dip in the pool and ordered some delicious food from the attentive and polite wait staff.

The hotel also offers some truly world class dining, which we have come to expect from some hotel brands but are still always surprised to find. Certo, their amazing a la cart Italian restaurant serves some of the freshest and finest Italian dining in all of Dubai in a beautiful and unassuming setting.

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

.

While some business hotels tend to turn off the average traveler, we were happy to find that Radisson Blu Dubai Media City, while offering some of the most impressive business services we have come across, it never felt we were in a sterile business environment. Sure, the hotel clearly has meeting rooms and various conferences going on but they have done it all without making it feel a solely business hotel, and while we are talking about it, I cannot think of a better equipped hotel to have a conference at as everything is comfortable and spacious.

Comfortable, spacious, quiet and connected, we enjoyed our stay with no complaints. A cut above a standard hotel, there are surprising options Radisson Blu always reveals to us, like the library at Dubai Media City, a beautiful decorated room quietly tucked away for the traveler trying to get away from it all, clearly a little extra thought was put into this location which didn’t get unnoticed.

Radisson Blu Alcron

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Alcron, Prague

.

Prague is one of the most picturesque cities in all of Europe and a city which manages to attract loads of tourists a year while still maintaining a certain charm and undiscovered vibe. We recently spent a weekend in Prague and wanted to experience some of that same classic era atmosphere where we stayed, and the Radisson Blu Alcron was a fantastic pick. Located a stones throw from the Mustik metro stop right off of Wenceslas Square right in the middle of town.

Radisson Blu AlcronWalking in the front door we were immediately greeted by a warm bellman, happy to help us with our bags without being overbearing and making us uncomfortable, a fine line if you ask me. The hotel entrance opens to a beautiful lobby designed in the art deco motif with modern touches throughout. The Alcron boats a Michelin star-rated restaurant as well as a gorgeous and inviting coffee shop and bar.

The building itself is as old as it is classy, with age old touches throughout the hotel. The rooms are spacious, and offer all the modern amenities you could ask for while maintaining the classic feeling of an old, grand hotel. The furniture is comfortable, beds as well and the large bathrooms provide more than enough space and privacy for a couple or a family.

The internet is of course free, as it is at all Radisson Blu locations, however, the wifi in our room was awful and as soon as we took more and a couple steps into our room, it cut out. Ironically, the only place we could grab the wifi signal while in the room was if we were sitting on the toilet. Everywhere else in the hotel the wifi worked fine, so just make sure to check when you get into your room if being always connected is of importance to you during your stay. As with many old buildings, sometimes the wifi signal gets a bit confused and cut off in certain areas. The only complaint that we had at the Alcron was the extra charge if we wanted to use the Nespresso coffee machine in the room. In previous Radisson Blu locations the use of the Nespresso machine has been complimentary, which we of course prefer.

Of course we couldn’t review a hotel without talking about the breakfast. For anyone who has read this blog, you might have come across Marina’s post Hotel Breakfast is all about the Eggs. Interestingly, she wrote that post just a couple days before we checked into the Alcron Hotel, where, after three months of travel, she finally found her holy grail of eggs… the chef manned, cooked-to-order egg station.  Breakfast includes gourmet coffee of your choice, a VAST array of breakfast foods (including individual Nutella packets!). My favorite breakfast buffet item is the fresh squeezed orange juice machine, something we have only seen at three hotels this year. The made to order omelets were amazing, its surprising how much a little taste of homemade food can brighten your day when you travel.

.

Radisson Blu Alcron

.

We would happily stay at the Radisson Blu Alcron again when we are in Prague next and can’t think of a more classy, comfortable and centrally located hotel close enough to the center of town to see it all but set off enough to enjoy a quiet stay.

Rooms start at $150 and include free internet.

Radisson Blu Sky Hotel

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Sky Tallinn, Estonia

.

I have to be honest that Estonia was not on our original list of cities to visit during our whirlwind trip through Europe. After we found ourselves in Helsinki and learned how easily we could jump on a ferry to Tallinn, the quant capital city of Estonia, we leaped at the chance. The Tallink Silja ferry takes only two hours from nearby Helsinki and drops you off right close to downtown. We were instantly delighted by the charm of Tallinn and, although we only had 24 hours to explore, we had tons on our to do list, and there was no better place to stay the night than the Radisson Blu Sky Hotel. Although we tend to book smaller, boutique hotels, the Radisson Blu line has developed an amazing line of locations which provide all of the benefits of a larger hotel chain with the added comforts of the smaller boutique hotels that we love.

.

“We were greeted by one of the most impressive breakfast spreads we have come across yet, complete with everything you could ever dream for, and then some…”

.

Newly renovated in May 2013, the lobby instantly feels more like a design hotel than a chain. Individual check in counters are staffed by polite staff, and across the lobby is a super hip, sprawling bar, complete with deep purples and unique design elements. Walking into the lobby made us excited for our stay, not the usual at many hotels we walk into.

Our room was on the 22nd floor, which gave us amazing views over all of Tallinn, highly recommended as the skyline of old Tallinn truly looks ancient and is full of picturesque church spires. As soon as we walked in we were met with the views, the most comfortable looking beds and a light, airy interior which felt nothing like a traditional hotel room.  Seeing as most hotel rooms are similar in nature, as we always say, its the little things which make all the difference. The Nespresso coffee maker, individual slippers and bathrobes and plush, comfy chairs make for a luxurious homely feel as soon as you walk in.

.

Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 7.59.58 PM.

The hotel features an amazing Spa on the 24th floor, a full gym and what they call “Super Breakfast”. If you travel frequently this one should excite you, and it lives up to its name. We were greeted by one of the most impressive breakfast displays we have come across yet, complete with everything you could ever dream for, and then some. Hotel breakfasts are about two things, quantity and quality, and the super breakfast at Radisson Blu Sky exceeded in both categories.

.

Internet is free, as it is at all Radisson Blu locations, and is not only fast but easy, no passcode username nonsense. Late check out is available pretty much as late as you want, and with Radisson Blu’s “one touch” system you can simply pick up the phone and have any question or concern you can think of handled simply at the touch of a button.

.

Radisson Blu Sky Hotel

.

It was a shame we were only able to spend one night in Tallinn and absolutely loved our stay although it was short. Tallinn is definitely on our list of must visit places whenever we return to Europe and we cannot wait to explore the old city again and we know exactly where we will be staying.
