About Me

Since Mar 2005

Lives in Dusseldorf, Germany

50-64 year old male

I spend 40 thru 60 nights per year in hotel rooms, mostly in Europe and North America, but sometimes in Africa or Asia too. Even when I am on a business trip, I select the hotel myself, after consulting tripadvisor.com. I prefer hotels from 3 to 5 stars, always looking for individual, stylish hotels with a regional touch. I like hotels with atmosphere. Swimming is very important for me. When I rate hotels for tripadvisor.com, I consider the hotel's price level. In a very expensive 5-star-hotel I am much more critical than in an 3-star-country inn which is a bargain. For dining, I choose either regional fare or the best of the best, usually restaurants with Michelin stars. I enjoy a dinner consisting of many small courses that lasts a whole evening.
