My last stop in Europe happened to be in Munich. I had a lot of trouble deciding which part of Munich I should stay in but after some consideration, I decided to settle in Holiday Inn Munich City Centre.
The hotel is located just outside of the city centre. I was initially keen to stay within the city centre itself (near the Hauptbahnhof). After reading reviews that suggest the area may be a little rowdy, I decided to stay a little off it. Holiday Inn is just at the fringe of it and it is connected to the S-Bahn via an underground connector. This is extremely useful during winter time and makes the hotel very convenient for those arriving into Munich Airport (as the S8 line connects directly to Franz Josef Strauss International Airport).

My second last stop for my Europe trip (which was also the stop my other half most wanted to visit) was Hallstatt. Hallstatt is small quaint town in Upper Austria and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unless one is driving, reaching there can be quite a challenge and costly. Nevertheless, it is certainly a place worth visiting.
Being a very small town by the lake Hallstatt, there isn’t much hotel to choose from. Heritage Hotel is probably the most convenient to reach and is situated right in the town centre (it is very small town by the way). There are some B&B around though if one wants to consider other alternatives.

Moving on from London, we arrived at the picturesque city of Innsbruck. Coming in from Munich via the OBB, the Adler is just a short walking distance from the main train station. This would come in handy for those who have big luggage. Staying in the old city has its charm, getting there may be a little challenging with luggage in tow and harsh weather. It is also within walking distance to the old town (where most of the point of interests are in) and also near to many supermarkets and eateries. Adlers is certainly very convenient.

Radisson Blu Plaza is situated very centrally in Helsinki. It is within walking distance to the regional train station, the art museum is just a stone throw away and the esplanade and market hall is within walking distance. During winter, the Christmas market is just around the corner. Kamppi is just nearby; where the central bus station is situated in (it is a shopping centre too). With such a strategic location, how did the hotel fare?
