Austria, Czech, and Germany Review

A travel blog entry by abryan124

... did AMAZING AND THRILLING paragliding and saw the Disney castle. I had the best roommates I had on the trip and I am blessed I had that opportunity. My hostel was really good for breakfast, meeting people, and location. I didn't know until I got there that it was the best one in Munich! It is a different city than Koln and Berlin because the city choose to rebuild in the classic ways. Munich was a great city to dive into history, the German ...

I LOVE New York??

... eating a sandwich or just chatting while children played in the grass. I suppose little oasis as these are important in a city so covered in concrete. Bryant Park is surrounded on all sides by sky scrapers stretching up into the sky like mighty sentinels protecting this tiny piece of paradise. We wandered around just appreciating the ambiance of everything and even grabbed a slice of the BEST Sicilian pizza ever (can’t stop thinking about it) ...

New York was pretty awesome, we had a great week there. We left San Francisco sweaty and sunburnt only to step off the plane in New York in 7 degrees and heavy rain! Luckily it was the only rainy day during our stay. We had Mexican and jalapeño margaritas with Helen that evening which was pretty yummy. Then Lance managed to get away from work for a few hours so he, Brad and I hit up the local pubs. We sat at the bar feeling ...

... restaurant on the lake where numerous scenes in films such as When Harry Met Sally, 27 Dresses and Sex and The City have taken place. It was a nice meal but it's more about the setting than the food (although the pretzel baguette was to die for!). In the afternoon we went up to Belvedere Castle. We only just managed to make it there without losing Dad who was obsessed with catching a photo of the very rare grey squirrel! A couple were ...

three) Follow forgiveness of your spouse and yourself. There is a great deal of blame to go close to when relationships go off program via a dishonest spouse. You both blame every single other to some diploma for in which things went mistaken but you each blame yourselves even more. It's time to quit taking part in the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Affinia Gardens New York City



    We read the great reviews on Trip Advisor re: Lyden Gardens, so we had some expectations about what the suite would be like. However, we were disappointed to see that our room wasn't very clean at all. The kitchen counters were dirty (dried food), the floors in the bathroom and kitchen hadn't been cleaned, and the carpet throughout was dirty and smelly. We brought it to the attention of the front desk, and they cleaned the room while we were out, but we were pretty uncomfortable for the rest of the stay. All of that should have been taken care of before they gave us the keys to the room. We're not sure we'd stay there again.

    Great find!


    Recently stayed at the Lyden Gardens. I've stayed in many different hotels in NYC and wanted to try something more "boutiquey" this time. The rooms were very roomy and the room on the 1st floor had a cute patio with a table and chairs! Will stay there again.

    Great Hotel, Great Neighborhood


    We have stayed twice at Lyden Gardens. We love the neighborhood and the roomy suites - a nice to place to relax in between NYC activities! Not the most luxurious of hotels, but a great value and wonderful location. Staff is very helpful with restaurant recommendations, arranging car service, etc. Will definitely go back.

    Just right


    An all round good hotel. Excellent staff, always willing to help, not in the least pretentious, nothing too much trouble. We paid $229 plus tax for a room on the fifth floor, overlooking the small garden. Whilst not being luxury the rooms are comfortable, spacious, in a good area and the kitchen is a real plus. 5 minutes walk to shopping, restaurants and subway. A longer walk will get you to Central Park. I would not hesitate to return.

    Very nice, and a bargain


    The Lyden Gardens is a great place to stay for anyone who needs a bit of room. The suites are big, bright and clean. The location is brilliant, and the staff is outstanding (and multilingual, with French, Russian, Spanish and Polish spoken---along with who knows what else). The bathrooms are small, but otherwise fine. All in all, a bargain!

    Very Impressed


    After reading the reviews for The Habitat Hotel I had originally booked with I had nightmares that I would be eaten alive by bedbugs! Luckily I saw the reviews two weeks before I left for New York and booked The Lyden instead.

    I was a bit wary before I arrived because there was only 4 reviews and they were all good ones! I thought there must be a catch!

    I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in an excellent location. A 15 minute walk 10 if you walk quickly to 5th Avenue and Central Park. There was a 5, 10 minute cab ride away to Times Square if you couldn't be bothered walking (25-30 mins) Only 12 dollars including tip!

    The hotel itself was great. I shared a junior suite with my sister and it was big for us! Very clean. Two queen size beds, 3 wardrobes (closets) and a safe. There longing area with sofa and table, a television, a separate kitchen and bathroom and a shower! The hotel provided 24 hour room service from 4 of the local restaurants surrounding 64th street. We used them all! There were also grocery stores and pharmacy's near by for your convenience too. Yep we used those too.

    The beds were made daily by the maid and clean towels were put out every day. She even washed our dishes one day. Gave her a big tip at the end!

    The staff were always helpful and polite, and the bellboys were also full of information and willing to help. Big thanks to the polish guy Kris (bellboy) who sorted out our ride back to JFK. Lovely air conditioned car!

    I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and when I go back I will definitely be staying here.

    Only thing is if you don't like noise early in the morning i.e. garbage trucks and delivery trucks to the local hotels and restaurants then bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper! I didn't mind I was in New York after all!

    One's own wonderful welcoming east side apartment


    This wonderful east side suites hotel has relieved us of the pressure for our own pied-a-terre in NY. The staff is welcoming and helpful, the location phenomenal, and the price more than reasonable. As a result, we have come back often for more than a dozen years. Within minutes, if you wish, you can buy groceries only a half block away, and have a full breakfast from your well furnished kitchen, which alone saves much of what would be a formal hotel's cost. This is one of those names we love so much that we hate to share - though its broad international clientel from the UN, etc., keep the hotel full, friendly, and interesting. Were its suites ever to go condo, I certainly would want to buy one. You won't be disappointed, unless you are seeking artifice and obsequiousness. P.S. When you reserve, request a suite overlooking the gardens.

    Loved the Lyden


    We loved the Lyden Gardens. The rooms are big and the Lyden has the ambience of its upper east side neighborhood(which we love). It is like having your own NYC residence. We were in town for a wedding and the suite was big enough to entertain and the living room was like having an extra bedroom for the overflow.The staff was friendly and helpful. I can see coming back a couple of times a year for a New York fix.

    Our own NYC apartment


    This is a comfortable hotel with full kitchens and large rooms in a great upper east side neighborhood. It's like having your own apartment. It's not posh or trendy but it is like being at home. We've stayed there many times, usually a week at a time and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is filled with wonderful restaurants and shops.

    Best of Manhattan


    This is a wonderful place to stay in NYC, weve been staying here for more than 10 years. The neighborhood is fantastic, rooms are huge, you feel like at home . The staff is highly professional but friendly and always ready to help. you should try to get reservations well in advance of your stay , prices tend to go up so its better to check in advance to better rates.

    Definitely a great place to stay either for short term or even long term stays.

    Will keep getting back to this Hotel.
