Czech Republic, Prague – Emblem Hotel

Our Review of Hotel Emblem

I just had a fantastic stay at the Emblem Hotel in Prague.  As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted by the incredibly friendly staff who were surprisingly not behind a reception desk but instead lead me to a comfortable seating area for a check-in.  This is all part of their mission to create a hotel that is less ‘lock yourself in your room’ and more come out into the beautifully furnished common areas and be a part of the community.

Emblem Hotel communal kitchen

The Emblem has a similar model to the Soho House where locals can become a member and use their lounges, conference rooms and communal spaces to host a meeting, party or just have a space to unwind.  The areas are free for all guests to use and I must admit as a traveller who is also working, I loved being able to sit in the spa and check emails!

England, London – Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderblit

Review of London’s Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt

My first time in London and I wanted to make sure I was in a good location that allowed me to get around to the local sites, or further by tube if need be. The Vanderbilt was perfect! So close to the Royal Albert Hall, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, and other museums, and only a 2 minute walk to the nearest tube station at Gloucester Road.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel

As a bit of a history buff I enjoyed the architecture and history of the building. The winding hallways and maze of stairs are fun to explore and really bring your imagination to life as to how the building could have been. The architecture looks to have been a series of row houses that have been combined into one hotel.
