2015/02/24 at 6:36 pm 0
2 Months Ago, I went to Istanbul to celebrate the New Year's. I've stayed at a Hilton Bomonti Hotel (5 star hotel)  for 6 nights. I would like to start reviewing each hotel I visit, bringing you guys high-quality reviews that will help you to become more familiar with the neighborhood and find the right hotel faster and easier! My room was located on the 31st floor. It was a very clean and comfortable with a king bed. My room had only a shower, but I've seen another room (same cost), and there was a bath a smaller shower. This is a very new hotel, and I personally love staying in a new, modern hotel rooms. Hilton Bomonti Hotel Istanbul Turkey The lobby of the hotel is stunning. On some days (don't know the exact schedule) hotel invites a pianist! On the lobby floor, there is also a restaurant, but I didn't like the food there. The hotels have 2 restaurants in total and 1 bar. The staff at the front desk and concierge were nice and helpful. HIlton Bomonti Istanbul Taxi is usually always available at the hotel entrance. My room rate included a very big and yummy breakfast. Hilton Bomonti Hotel Istanbul The hotel has a spa, gym, pool, steam rooms, etc. I absolutely loved the gym! It was spacious and well equipped. I've spent 3 whole days not leaving the hotel, exploring everything it has to offer. Eating, Swimming and Exercising all day long. Hilton Bomonti Hotel Istanbul Turkey Photo 5 Room: King Guest Room (up to 3 people). The king bed was a European King, not as big as an American King bed. 5/5 stars Breakfast: Great variety of foods at the buffet Room rate: Around $190 Location: You need a taxi to go to the historical part or Taksim. Nothing interesting is within a close walking distance. 3/5 Service: Staff were nice and welcoming. 5/5 Amenities: gym, spa, pool, sauna, steam room. Everything is free except for the spa. Free wi-fi is everywhere! Overall: New, clean and comfortable hotel located in the new part of Istanbul. Wonderful for family vacations or business trips. However, you will probably need to get a taxi or a bus to go places. For the price for will pay, it's a very good hotel. Rating: 4.5/5 stars   Address: Silahsor Cad. 42 Bomonti-Sisli, Istanbul, Turkey. http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/turkey/hilton-istanbul-bomonti-hotel-and-conference-center-ISTBHHI/index.html   Contact me: info@madelinefedmont.com Follow me on BLOGLOVIN’TWITTERFACEBOOKTUMBLRGOOGLE + Steller  Thank you for reading :)

Shanghai’s Garden Of Contentment
2015/01/10 at 6:53 pm 4
Last month I went to Shanghai, China. Out of everything that I've visited my favorite place was the Yu Garden. It's peaceful, interesting and beautiful garden in the center of the biggest city in China. Throughout my exploration of the garden, I couldn't stop taking photos of nature and the buildings. If you will be in Shanghai, definitely go to the Garden of Contentment (Yu Garden). The garden is located in the area where they are many shops, there you can buy anything: tea, jewelry, chopsticks, bags, and herbs. I hope you will enjoy these photos. Most of you have probably noticed that I changed the design of my website, please let me know in the comment if you like it or not. From now on I will be posting once a week!

Historical Treasure: Nanjing Fuzimiao
2014/12/22 at 11:21 am 0
Hello my lovely readers, I am so sorry for the lack of post lately. I was just very busy traveling throughout China. However, now I am back and would like to share with you photos that I took while being in Nanjing. I absolutely love Asian traditional architecture, and that has caused me to never pass a traditional building without taking a photo. Nanjing has a long history of once being a Capital of China, but now it’s mainly known for the tragic Nanjing Massacre that started in 1937 and lasted for a year. Among the travelers, Nanjing is not usually the place that comes to mind while picking which cities to visit in China, and I want to encourage more people to explore less popular places. Nanjing is a clean and warm city. In December, the weather was around 8 degrees Celsius. The main sight I recommend you to visit if you are coming to Nanjing is the Nanjing Fuzimiao. It’s a Temple of Confucius, who was a Chinese philosopher. I think the Temple is even more beautiful at night! This is my gallery of photos from Nanjing Fuzimiao. Let me know in the comments if you love night photography.  (more…)

Traveling to Spain
2014/11/27 at 8:01 pm 0
(Image from pixabay) Hi Everybody! In the midst of this cold weather, I decided to begin planning my next spring vacation to escape this cold. I thought for a while where I could go to enjoy some sun and see unique sights. A couple of years ago I've visited Spain, and I want to share with you what I thought about my trip and what to expect when you're coming to Spain. I was in Barcelona during the summer, and I loved everything from the grand architecture, exquisite food, warm weather, fountain show and pretty beaches. However, I don't want to go to Barcelona again next year due to it's fast pace lifestyle, so I picked a much calmer place on the island. I did my research and decided to visit Lanzarote next spring. Lanzarote is a one of breathtaking Spanish Canary Islands located in the Atlantic Ocean. It's a perfect vacation destination for those travelers like me that don't just love spending time on the beach. There, you can do activities that you probably would never do in any other place in Spain. For example, ride a camel, enjoy a mercerizing sunset on the beach, visit Playa de Papagayo, see a real volcano with your own eyes, discover the rock formations of Los Hervideros and explore the unique nature.
