Hotels reviewed in 2013

In the course of 2013 I reviewed over 20 hotels, and out of the list below only Bayview Melaka and Alabama Hotel were paid for out of my own pocket (so blessed!). My favourite hotel of all would have to be Grande Centre Point in Bangkok – it has the solid substance of a well-designed contemporary hotel. Ramada Singapore was pretty cool, too, and I think I spot a trend here with the kind of hotels I like – new, spacious, modern and minimalistic, as much as I like to think I like vintage and historical.
