Best Western Atrium @ Arles France

IMG_2989Best Western Atrium in Arles is centrally located with the Tourist Information Center and old town just walking distance away.  We unloaded our luggage and parked offstreet on the lane perpendicular to the hotel.  (There was hotel parking but it was full when we arrived.)


The lobby, waiting area and the lounge bar are brightly colored, and jive vibrantly with the Provençal theme.  You will feel instantly welcomed by the colors – the hues of greens, the reds and the browns.  The lounge bar reminds me of Van Gogh’s pool table picture.

The room is spacious enough for two with a small desk, flat screen TV, balcony and a comfortable bed.  And most importantly, WIFI and air conditioning are available!

The bathroom is clean but quite small, almost like the size of bathrooms in Tokyo.  As you can see, the sink and the mirror maximize the  corner of the wall.  Nonetheless, the bathroom serves its purpose with adequate bathroom amenities.

The roof-top area is awesome with a pool and a dining area splashed in red and yellow (reminds me of Roussillon).  Unfortunately we did not get to use the pool as we only stayed for one night and checked out early the next morning.  But we did buy some breakfast from a bakery nearby and enjoyed it at the roof-top.

Overall, our stay at Best Western Atrium in Arles was enjoyable and wished we could have stayed longer to use the facilities like the pool and lounge bar.

Tailor-Made-Backpackers @ Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.

Tailor-Made-Backpackers is a well maintained hostel.  The double room with en suite bathroom we took was more like motel accommodation rather than a hostel.  At only NZD80 per night, I thought was a good steal. Our room is an individual cottage, sort of looks like the one in the picture below but of a smaller size. The picture below is the main building that houses the reception, the kitchen and the common area.
