How much will it cost to rent a decent hotel for 12 days in the Baghdad area?

Question by Mz. Add me: How much will it cost to rent a decent hotel for 12 days in the Baghdad area?
I don’t have too much money to spend, I don’t want to spend more than $ 1250 dollars in TOTAL. For the trip, including plane. How much will it cost for 14 nights, the hotel has to be decent.

I would prefer some views, close to shopping and transportation.

Also, can I have some links to hotel websites that can offer.
(Expedia, travelocity, etc)
I plan to go around mid July.

Will you call Marina Sands hotel as a 6 star hotel?

Question by Nazia: Will you call Marina Sands hotel as a 6 star hotel?
Will you call Marina Bay Sands hotel as a 6 star hotel? (they have a boat like swimming pool on the rooftop)
Burj Al Arab is touted as 7 star hotel.

Best answer:

Answer by Moonie
Well, all hotels in the world have to meet some standards and requirements and then they have to apply for the international board of hotels for their classification of hotel.

So no one can say that they are 6 stars when they are not. And if Marina Star Hotel says they are, so they are as they have cleared with the authority on this matter.

The YHA Hostel in Village of Hartington in Derbyshire
Five Stones Hostel

We spent five nights in the magnificent YHA Hostel that is located in this village. We used it as a base for cycling on the Tissington Trail and the High Peaks Trail, and for walks into Beresford Dale, Biggen Dale, Wolfscote Dale, and Dovedale.

The town itself, though quite small, had much to recommend it. Here are some quotes from the Wikipedia Entry:

"Hartington is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District, England, lying on the River Dove. According to the 2001 census the parish of Hartington Town Quarter, which also includes Pilsbury, had a population of 345. Formerly known for the mining of ironstone, limestone and lead, the village is now known for cheese-making and tourism.

Notable buildings in the village include: the market hall (formerly the site of a market); the 13th century parish church of Saint Giles; and 17th century Hartington Hall. A prominent house in the centre of the village is Bank House, built by the former village mill owner and in the past used as the village bank. A half-mile to the south of the village, on the Dove, is the fishing house of the famous angler Charles Cotton. In the north of the village is Pilsbury Castle,[1] an 11th century motte-and-bailey castle, that survives only as an earthwork.

Near Hartington is the finest neolithic stone circle in the Peak District, Arbor Low. There are numerous ancient tumuli and cairns in the landscape around Hartington, probably dating from the Bronze Age. Hartington Mill, now a private house, stands by the River Dove. This was the local water mill for grinding corn.

The village has a youth hostel at Hartington Hall, which serves two major National Cycle Network routes; the Tissington Trail and the High Peak Trail, which meet at nearby Parsley Hay. These trails pass just under one mile to the east of the village, and offer 30 miles of off-road cycling and walking along old railway trackbeds through the Peak District National Park. Hartington signal box, on the site of the former Hartington railway station, and nearly two miles distant from the village, has been renovated and converted to a Visitor Centre.

A little south of the village, overlooking the Dove, stands Wolfscote Hill (388m at grid reference SK137583), a good viewpoint, now in the care of the National Trust.

Three miles to the south-west lies the small settlement of Hulme End, which marks the northern starting point of the Manifold Way, an 8 mile tarmacked walk- and cycle-route following the route of the former Leek and Manifold Valley Light Railway.

Hartington was mentioned in the Domesday book as belonging to Henry de Ferrers and being worth forty shillings.[2] The parish was originally quite large, and part of the hundred of Wirksworth. Hartington had four townships, known as the Town Quarter, Nether Quarter, and Middle Quarter, and Upper Quarter, which are now all separate parishes. These became separate civil parishes in their own right in 1866.[3] They are marked on Ordnance Survey maps.

Q&A: Me and my husband planning for a vacation. What are the best places to visit an best travel deals available?

Question by Kemal D: Me and my husband planning for a vacation. What are the best places to visit an best travel deals available?
Me and my husband planning for a leisure vacation. I want to know the best places to visit this season and the cheap travel deals.

Best answer:

Answer by World Traveller
Greece, Italy and Spain (more specifically the Mediterranean countries) are almost cheap at this period of the year. They are too expensive if you want to come in summer or winter. But this period, until mid-May you can have qualitative vacations and without having to spend too much money in these countries…

Too many things to see and too little money to give, this time of the year!!!

Where can I find good Okonomiyaki in Osaka,Japan?

Question by Norsehawk: Where can I find good Okonomiyaki in Osaka,Japan?
So I got to Japan on monday, going to be here until friday, looking to sample Osaka’s most famous dish, also, I can read most hiragana fine, but haven’t seen any signs that say おこのみやき is that what I am looking for on the sign, or is it something else?

If it helps at all, I am staying near the Dobtsuen Mae station.

I also don’t speak Japanese very well, so a place with a bilingual menu would really help alot 🙂
