Hakkasan Mayfair. Why you should skip the wine and start with Dim Sum

Hakkasan Mayfair is probably the best Chinese restaurant in London, although it has stiff competition from Kai, Park Chinois and China Tang. I have been going to Hakkasan ever since it first opened in Hanway Place – an unappealing back alley near the Tottenham Court Road. No sign on the black, suspicious looking door with a doorman. I thought I am going to some sort private club. Anyway the no sign and black door are still the case as is the doormen. So if you go for the first time, you better pay attention otherwise you will pass the place without noticing.

When in London, we usually stay in Connaught hotel so we tend to go to the Mayfair branch. In the heart of Mayfair in Bruton Street and just few steps of other fantastic restaurants like Sexy Fish, Novikov or Nobu, this is officially one of my favourite restaurants in London. In my experience the Mayfair branch is the most consistently excellent in terms of food and service (visited also branch in Las Vegas and LA).

Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli by Lake Garda doesn’t do anything less than perfect

Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli

There is only one word to describe Villa Feltrinelli and that is “PERFECTION”. Built as a family house (the Feltrinelli family was very well known for their lumber and publishing business) which became a residence of Mussolini in the 40s. Then it was owned by the legendary hotelier Bob Burns, who wanted this to be his private house. After spending millions on restoration, he finally decided to open it as hotel in 2001. And that is how we know Villa Feltrinelli now. The most beautiful place which will satisfy even the most demanding clients on Earth. When you are in the grounds, you feel like the world is perfect. You become part of the bubble of perfection and sometimes this perfection is hard to explain. I will, however, try. View Post


If you seek perfection, The Connaught hotel is your best choice in London

The Connaught hotel

London is full of great hotels. The choices are endless. However there are “amazing” hotels and there are “AMAZING” hotels! Guess to which category The Connaught hotel belongs to? Yes, you guessed it right, “AMAZING” hotels category. What I personally love and what sets it apart from other amazing hotels like Claridges or The Lanesborough or The Dorchester is mainly the size and the overall feeling. Starting with the entrance and reception size, everything feels more personal. You almost feel like you are in someone’s house (someone’s very very rich house). View Post

Villa Magna hotel in Madrid. Why this is your best choice when you travel to Spanish capital?

The luxury 5* Villa Magna hotel is situated in the centre of the Spanish capital, in the heart of the poshest area called the Salamanca district. This is the cleanest and nicest area in centre of Madrid with all the best shops and the best restaurants (I will write about those in my later posts).

Villa Magna hotel Location

Just few steps from the luxurious boutiques like Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Hermes, you will not be disappointed. You can walk everywhere very easily, including to some of the tourist attractions, like the Prado or Thyssen Museums (around 30 min walk). Straight on the doorstep of the back entrance you will find the big department store El Corte Ingles (comes in handy when you forget something). It has everything from supermarket, deli corner and pharmacy to designer clothing and accessories.  The Salamanca district is the most stylish area in Madrid and definitely my favourite. View Post
