Esplanade Zagreb: A Room

I arrived in the evening at the Esplanade Zagreb,

the cuisine of Le Bistro Esplanade closed soon. Check-in completed at the reception desk, I was kindly directed to the restaurant. After dinner, I wanted to do few snapshots of the hotel and I spent lots of time… of course … Still not seen my room. Along the way I discovered a kind of debutante ball, among the thousand decorative objects that arouse my curiosity. Then completely knockout (more than 24 hours without sleeping), I finally go to my room. Opening the door, I have the feeling that I know the place which is very nice. Even the Coca Zero “Frend” (mate) greets me! The room is spacious and cozy, with a comfortable seating area and long windows.

But the real good surprise: the bathroom

designed as an open space, large, clean and functional with a glam touch of Art Deco. A pleasure to use: no door or wall with the room. Without vampirizing space, such as when the tub is placed opposite the bed: I hate and it can be found in a plethora of design hotels! Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fane of design and crazy architecture.

But in some upscale hotels that were palaces in the past, I especially like their ability to anticipate the notion of comfort for each guest. In my case, I need a large number of electrical outlets in the room for my several chargers (cameras, mobile and laptop). I also need indirect lighting that is not too strong (neither too dark) and a perfect bedding. And do I have to mention free efficient wifi in all areas of the hotel? The Esplanade Zagreb has perfectly fulfilled all these criteria.

Sofitel Saint James: A Room With A Breakfast @ The Balcon

Just arrived in London St. Pancras station 

and 4 tube stops later, I’m on Piccadilly Circus, 2 minutes walk from the Sofitel Saint James located away from the crowd, in a little place that I didn’t know. The hotel is housed in an heritage building: a former imposing bank with incredibly high ceilings!

After a warm welcome at reception desk by a French-English bilingual staff, I discover my room: simple, elegant and spacious, in a range of black, white and brown. The decor is stylish with black and white photographies on the wall. Lovely bathroom with the old faucet and tiled black and white checkered. 

What a pity amenities are limited to one soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner … all Hermès okay! But for short stays, to lighten my bag I bring the bare minimum like a mini make-up and cleanser, because I usually find everything else in the room. Damned, this time I didn’t take my toothbrush, toothpaste nor body cream (LOL!): thankfully Boots is in Piccadilly Circus!

Otherwise leaving my room with its so cozy vibe and “you’re in London Baby!” exotic view (picture 3) and comfortable king size bed, is a huge challenge my dear (lol)! Photo 4: a regressive wallpaper in the entrance to the room (picture 4).

And for lasting this cozy atmosphere, a breakfast full of vitamins at the beautiful Balcon, the relaxed chic brasserie of the hotel (pictures 6 & 7). Too hard to leave it to go to my meetings! Picture 5: amazing chandelier ceiling of a hotel suite.

Sofitel Saint James: Une chambre avec petit déjeuner au Balcon

A peine arrivée à la gare de Londres St Pancras et 4 stations de métro plus tard, je suis sur Piccadilly Circus, à 2 minutes à pied du Sofitel Saint James, situé en retrait de la foule sur une petite place que je ne connaissais pas. L’hôtel est installé dans un bâtiment classé : une imposante ancienne banque avec des hauteurs de plafonds hallucinantes! Accueil chaleureux à la réception par une équipe bilingue français-anglais, j’ai hâte de découvrir ma chambre : simple, élégante et spacieuse, dans une gamme de blanc, noir et marron. Très belle salle de bain avec robinetterie à l’ancienne et sol carrelé à damiers noir et blanc. Dommage que les produits de toilettes se limitent à un savon, un gel douche, un shampoing et un après shampoing… le tout Hermès, O.K.! Mais pour alléger mon sac durant les séjours express, je n’en porte que le strict minimum, mini make-up et démaquillant, car j’ai l’habitude de tout trouver à l’hotel. Damned this time, je n’ai pris ni brosse à dents, ni dentifrice, ni lait pour le corps (lol!) : direction Boots à Piccadilly Circus. Sinon quitter ma chambre à la déco ultra cosy, vue super dépaysante “you’re in London Baby!” (photo 3) et king size bed douillet à souhait, tient de l’héroïsme (lol)! Photo 4 : papier peint régressif dans l’entrée de la chambre (photo 4). Et pour prolonger cette ambiance cosy, un petit déjeuner vitaminé dans la superbe salle du Balcon, la brasserie chic et relaxe de l’hôtel (photos 6 et 7), d’où j’ai eu un mal fou à décoller pour filer à mes R.V. Photo 5 : le lustre un peu fou d’une suite de l’hôtel.
