    What theonepablohernandez and jdiamondisme thought:
    We felt welcomed from beginning to end. The room was very comfy, the bed was large, the toilet was spacious, the shower was just as spacious. We loved that the walls lit up (literally). Our balcony overlooking the rooftops and the Parisian sky was definitely a traditional touch of Paris.

    Breakfast in bed was such a nice touch and made it even more difficult for me to want to leave the room. The bar area was adorable. So chic and modern; yet quaint. The living green wall was beautiful.

    The elevator opens up to your room alone, no neighbors to bug you. Perfect for anybody looking to invite a friend over!

      What sklow thought:
      The location of this hotel is very central. It’s like in the heart of the city and very convenient to everywhere. The room is cozy with a nice view, and the staff are friendly & helpful. We were just asking for a gym and they even print out a map for us. Haha and you will love the rabbit.

        What thaiguytravel though:
        Hotel Clark has the most beautiful city view I think I have ever seen from a hotel room. Out over the river with the bridge and the historic buildings lit up in the background. I didn’t want to close the curtains even to sleep. Large comfy bed, good breakfast spread and within walk distance to all the best city sites.

        Budapest may not be as famous as other destinations for a gay city break but don’t dismiss it. There is plenty of gay nightlife across the city, and its so cheap, you can get a beer in a nightclub for just $1.5 USD.

          Convenient location- tram station is a stone away. Lovely breakfast and cozy apartment. Family run business and so guests are treated with a personal touch. I would stay again at Hotel V on my next visit.

            What sold_a_telly and petros_sp thought:

            This hotel, first of all, is perfectly positioned in Paris, right next to the Eurostar train station (perfect for short city breaks) and also the centre of hustle and bustle. We loved the vibrant colors involved in every part of the decor for the hotel as well as the funky decorations displayed around the lobby and the room itself.

            The breakfast was delicious with a full range of French cuisine! We would definitely recommend others to stay here in the future.

            ♥ Unique style and individually designed rooms by the Paint Club
            ♥ Make your day extra special and hire the completely private rooftop with hot tub

              What thaiguytravel thought:
              Berlin is one of Europe’s best city break destinations, party, culture, history so there is so much to see. I love the location of this hotel. Normally I stay in Schöneberg but felt so much better Mitte, busy, cool and alive. There are restaurants and bars all around. I will defiantly stay here again next time. Since many of the best gay venues in Berlin are so spread out you are always getting a taxi or train where ever you stay.

              The hotel itself is very cool loved the huge bathtub and the unique art. The signature bed is huge and so comfy.
