So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... makes me hungry. After having explored the museum we were all ready for a good meal, so we made for the York Food Festival in the centre of town. We all got hamburgers made from local Yorkshire beef, which was really good. For desert the girls got cookies, but I just had to try one of the giant, super-manly cupcakes.
We retired to the hostel for a quick break, and where we met Susanne who is from Los Angeles. We decided to team up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Malmaison Hotel Leeds
Although the rooms and reception areas are well designed this is not necessarily the place to stay if you require above average restaurant/breakfast service and undisturbed sleep.
Suite no so sweet!
Just returned from a weekend at Malmasion in leeds. We stayed in the suite,but it wasnt what we had expected (maybe weve been spoilt in the past), yes the room had great decor and looked the part but it smelt a bit stale and wasnt as clean as we would have liked. Also there was no remote for the tv, when we reported this to staff they simply said "oh the last guests must have stolen it, theres not another spare remote in the hotel!" how annoying havin to get out of bed each time you wanted to change the volume or channel!The food was delicious though and room service very promt. The experience hasnt put us of stayin at a Malmaison again tho,but i think a standard room would be better and spend the extra money in the bar at harvey nics!!!!!!
Very classy indeed
This was our first stay at the malmaison leeds. The room we were provided with was immaculate and very contempory in design. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was in easy walking distance of many of leeds nice bars. This is a throughly nice hotel and i am looking forward to my next stay.
The great hotel hunt
This hotel is a nightmare to find in the confusing one way system of Leeds. After driving round the system twice, I had to park in the overpriced multi-storey car park and trundle luggage through the streets of Leeds to get to the hotel. I then had to wander round to find the entrance to the place as it was not immediately clear from the street (too much smoked glass and not enough signs).
The hotel room was not as clean as I would have liked, the furniture incredibly dusty, and the noise from outside until the early hours meant keeping the windows closed despite the fine weather.
Breakfast was not included even though the room was well over £100 for the night.
Overall I was disappointed as I expected more from a Malmaison hotel.
A great place!
We stayed at the Malmaison for one night only but we wish it could have been for longer . The rooms were immaculate and tastefully decorated. The staff were polite and friendly.if we ever happen to be in the area again we will definately stay at this great hotel.
The place oosed class from the first moment and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Room was decorated to a high standard, with music playing when you enter the room to add to the atmosphere.
Only down side was the restaurant menu was not to my liking but there is no accounting for taste.
Central location ideal for pubs, clubs and shops.
Will be going back.
Great weekend break
Great for a getaway. Good location with regards to nightlife and shopping. The rooms are very modern and clean and the decor of the hotel in general is superb. Although the food in the brasserie is decent, it is ruined by the fact you wait forever for it to arrive as the waitresses dont appear to know what they are doing! Stay here but eat out!
Great hotel for a weekend break
Have just spent the weekend at the Malmaison and it was very impressive indeed. Great care and attention given to the entrance hall and lounge area with lovely ironwork balustrades and comfortable chairs, sofas and nice lamps to give a warm atmosphere. Staff very warm and friendly.
Bedroom was excellent. Huge bed, nicely decorated room with everything you would need including an iron and board. Great bathroom with very fast water pressure - it was a cold blustery weekend and great to have a bath that filled with hot water in two minutes. Very nice breakfast.
The hotel is by the river and only a five minute walk to the main shopping street. Very convenient indeed. Highly recommended.
Different, but nice!
This hotel is very nice, but very hard to find. The hotel sign is so hard to see, you end up driving around the one way system many times to find it.
Inside the hotel is very modern and trendy, cool furniture fill the lobby and all the bedrooms. The hallways are dark, which is not to our taste, but it certainly makes you feel like you are staying in an individual chain of hotels rather than a Hilton or Shearton. The lifts speak only French which is strange since the chain is British owned, even though it has a french title, but again this adds to the hotels style and appeal.
If you are looking for a place to stay, we would say book in here, just ask for a big room, as some are tiny.
A great, cool hotel.
The Malmaison is a new hotel in Central Leeds and is a great value, trendy place to stay. The ambiance is relaxed and the staff attentive and friendly. The room I stayed in was great with a huge, comfortable king sized bed and the room has cable TV and a good CD player. The Malmaison also has a great brasserie with an excellent good value menu and a good selection of wines. This hotel is ideal for the young or young at heart and is one of the best, most relaxed hotels I have stayed in.
