Review of Restaurant Martin, Flueh/Switzerland


Classic French cuisine with a twist, amiable hosts

My husband and I visited this restaurant – situated in my home canton of Solothurn, but bordering France – on the occasion of a business dinner. Our party was much too early, maybe 20 minutes before the restaurant opened, but that was no problem. We were warmly welcomed and seated, which cannot be taken for granted!

Review of Grand Hotel du Palais Royale, Paris

Unbeatable location, beautifully renovated, fairly priced

For our family’s short trip to Paris, our choice for a hotel fell on this perfectly located, beautifully renovated hotel in a splendid 18th century building.


Paris: my favorite city

Paris – always worth a visit

Paris is my favorite city by far. When I was a bit over 20 years old, I stayed there for 5 months in order to improve my French skills and since then I absolutely have been devoted to this wonderful city! I frequently visit Paris, certainly every 2 to 4 years I spend some days there.

For our 2 nights’ stay in Boston we (2 couples) chose this conveniently situated and well designed hotel in downtown.

Review of Madison Beach Hotel, Madison CT/USA

Great location, room and food okay

We (two couples) stayed 1 night at this hotel when traveling from NYC to Boston. The location is great, right on the beach.


Review of Hotel Caro, Valencia/Spain

Masterfully renovated old palace in top location

This hotel is by far the best choice for demanding travellers in the old town of Valencia. My husband and I chose Caro for our 4 days’ stay in this beautiful and not overly touristy city in the middle of the Spanish Mediterranean coast and fully enjoyed it.
