04:34
Oliver we want to know about you at
04:36
first how do I get you first of all I
04:39
arrived in Berlin and taking over the
04:41
optin competing skee-ball want to have
04:43
years ago so I'm pretty new to town but
04:45
I have worked many many years before in
04:47
Berlin and several different positions
04:48
before maybe two to start with it all my
04:52
my career started back in western
04:54
Germany city close to Hannover I used to
04:57
travel a lot with my father whenever he
04:59
had a business trip he took me RISM I
05:01
was staying in beautiful hotels I was
05:03
waiting for him was my soda at the bar
05:06
in the evening and I found it extremely
05:08
fancy what did you dad do
05:10
my dad was selling furniture oh so you
05:14
travel
05:14
all over Europe and ever had holidays in
05:16
school I was able to come with him we
05:17
both enjoyed it I enjoyed the hotels the
05:19
luxury the pools the bars as I said so I
05:22
saw to tell business extremely fancy so
05:24
when I started my apprenticeship so you
05:26
might know in Germany it's it's a
05:27
professional you start to learn for 3
05:29
years we saw hotels school once a week
05:31
and four days in a in a hotel in every
05:34
position so you work as a cook you work
05:35
in the stewarding department in the
05:37
restaurants you're working rooms
05:38
division so you have a very great
05:40
overview over the business alone really
05:42
every detail as well as you get your
05:45
school diploma and after three years you
05:46
certified Hotel II and what I did after
05:49
my apprenticeship I wanted to go to
05:50
Berlin at that time Westbourne still
05:52
divided city extremely interesting for a
05:55
young gentleman and I started here at
05:57
the reception of the Intercontinental
05:59
Hotel in West Berlin extremely
06:02
interesting time still east-west you had
06:04
to cross a ball or the wall was there so
06:06
I experienced it all first time was
06:08
there a lot of money to be spent it was
06:11
divided and actually for the eastern
06:12
Germans wasn't possible to cross the
06:14
border into West Berlin yeah so West
06:16
Berlin was only reachable by car through
06:18
the customs do the gates or obviously by
06:21
airplane it was an international city
06:24
but like an island maybe that describes
06:26
his best the big island you didn't see
06:28
the wall every minute of your life but
06:30
sure it was a very special situation but
06:33
still a blooming city interesting good
06:35
business and for a young gentleman at
06:37
that time sure the place to be in
06:39
Germany maybe in the heart of Europe
06:49
parties celebrities VIPs shoe everything
06:54
party's not so much I was more
06:55
interested into the culture part yes if
06:57
I remember correctly I'm not so sure
06:59
about that who do the place to be it is
07:03
truly the place to be right here the Sun
07:07
is coming out
07:08
overlooking this amazing historic
07:11
Brandenburg Gate however it's all about
07:14
education a major part of your education
07:17
you've got in the United States
07:19
absolutely right you know so after my my
07:21
diploma here back in Germany and before
07:23
the high school had the opportunity to
07:26
work in Miami for InterContinental
07:27
Hotels moved on to Obama's iris for a
07:30
year and a half then I had the chance
07:32
which we'll never forget because it was
07:34
grace that great time and great
07:35
education I went to Cornell University
07:37
upstate New York I concentrated their
07:40
own sales and marketing mainly so the
07:42
last five and a half years I spent in
07:43
Moscow before Berlin I opened there the
07:46
ritz-carlton Moscow right on the red
07:47
square what an opportunity because you
07:50
know the relationship between Moscow
07:51
Russia and Germany very close only two
07:53
and a half hours flight with a lot of
07:55
Russian business in Berlin as well that
07:58
helped me getting here to Berlin taking
08:00
over the art one and then he said you
08:03
know concentrate on this property which
08:04
has a fabulous history and with new
08:06
management skills with a young team
08:08
selecting the right people in the a
08:10
endowment and we're trying to create
08:12
experiences we're not selling a location
08:14
or product sure that many places in
08:16
Berlin where you can sleep well where
08:18
you can you know have a decent meal and
08:21
they might not have the location but at
08:24
the end of the day it all comes together
08:25
even that location was a bad service
08:27
would not be a nice experience and I
08:29
believe truly in the power of our ladies
08:31
and gentlemen creating an experience for
08:33
every guest which is memorable which is
08:35
exciting which is you're gonna
08:37
communicate about afterwards that has to
08:39
be that Wow and when you create that Wow
08:42
and that every day was every customer I
08:43
think you can really change the world
08:45
you have a wonderful wonderful spa here
08:48
very luxurious very intimate at the same
08:51
time I felt very cozy any time you can
08:55
have a treatment as well and that is
08:58
very important now building this Spa is
09:01
that something what has been
09:03
done recently did it come under your
09:06
umbrella tell us about it it was right
09:08
from the beginning when this hotel was
09:10
reconstructed after unification in
09:12
Berlin and was rebuilt on the original
09:14
spot of the Papillon convinced kilter
09:16
before that is where where the gold was
09:19
acid it was historically to build the
09:21
very best hotel in the world and sure
09:24
enough in a city location even so it's
09:26
mainly a business hotel you want to
09:28
offer a spa which is out of this world
09:30
and with the art on day spa from the
09:32
architecture from the whole atmosphere
09:34
that is it's a spa in the city
09:38
it is truly carrying you away and that
09:41
is what a lot of our customers enjoy you
09:43
have the option it's not a must but you
09:45
have that option and that is really what
09:46
a world class hotel should offer I saw
09:49
downstairs in the lobby there was a big
09:50
sign foreign ministry Allyson
09:53
ministerium I can say that yeah foreign
09:57
ministry means you meet a lot of very
09:59
influential people here sure this is a
10:02
home to be in Berlin the German
10:05
government as well as a lot of
10:06
international governments use the
10:08
article Pinsky as their home of choice
10:10
when they travel to the capital of
10:12
Germany it's our honor having these
10:14
guests here lots of state visit the US
10:16
president stayed at the artwork and
10:18
Pinsky many others you will please
10:20
understand and appreciate also as your
10:22
viewers we cannot really talk about our
10:25
guests but you liked our president very
10:27
much enjoyed and jointly before also in
10:29
Russia so it's it's a great visit it's
10:32
it's an great experience to have a state
10:34
visit like that you also had quite a few
10:37
personalities here what was it like to
10:39
have them here rather demanding I can
10:43
imagine probably difficult people to be
10:45
around I wouldn't call it difficult I
10:47
would call it challenging and that's
10:48
what we like that's our profession too
10:50
to having the most challenging customer
10:52
and guests to satisfy I can proudly say
10:56
that the Artem Kempinski is prepared for
10:58
that as we have so many celebratory so
11:00
many state visits people who really have
11:02
very special requests we're prepared for
11:04
that
11:04
I have a team of eight concierge if you
11:07
need a helicopter in 20 minutes we're
11:08
gonna have a heavy but this is about
11:11
seven stars you received last night you
11:15
a team you and you
11:16
the most distinguished hospitality award
11:19
what was it like tell me you see you see
11:21
it in my eyes I'm sure you don't much
11:23
like what what can be better than to get
11:25
such a prestigious award which is
11:27
recognizing the hard work of our ladies
11:30
and gentlemen every day because all of
11:32
them together create that feeling which
11:34
is then reflecting in an award like that
11:36
so we're very proud very happy we
11:38
celebrated today all together as a team
11:40
because as I said it's it's another
11:43
confirmation that we on the right track
11:45
that we do something maybe a little bit
11:47
better than others that makes me very
11:49
proud to have this hotel with this award
11:51
is a very special feature what I loved
12:03
is of course meeting your artist he
12:06
helped me out with us they literally
12:08
just me I looked up all his art on the
12:11
website and and we want you all to know
12:14
that you were displaying his art here
12:16
all over the hotel though it is a rather
12:20
elegant style it pops up the whole
12:23
dining room and makes it a lot of fun I
12:26
thought we are very proud um I want to
12:28
work with somebody like mr. Chesney he's
12:30
a very famous artist he resides at the
12:33
Cote d'Azur he's a lot of traveling all
12:35
over Europe very well-known great art
12:38
when I saw the art is it is exhibited
12:40
now in our restaurant we suppose all the
12:42
bright colors I thought Spring has
12:44
arrived in Berlin because definitely
12:47
it's its energy its colors really
12:49
something which is adding to our benefit
12:52
of having this location having these
12:54
guests here at the artwork and Pinsky
12:55
which you can also enjoy the art and
12:57
maybe more interesting than a museum
12:59
visit and it was pleasure great pleasure

18:31
is merely three hundred years old so we
18:34
are relatively young in comparison to
18:37
you guys here in Germany yep okay Pinsky
18:40
was originally opened on the 23rd of
18:41
October 1907 by a gentleman called
18:44
Lorenz Appling his dream his vision was
18:47
to open the very best product hotel in
18:51
Europe he built for two years spent a
18:53
hundred million gold mark at that time
18:56
that was then already a lot that was
18:58
then already Lonnie but most exciting it
19:00
was a first hotel with electric power it
19:04
was a first hotel was hot and cold
19:05
running water a lot of a lot of guests
19:09
and all over society were excited about
19:11
this building in this location and their
19:14
modernity the the possibilities the
19:17
building had the first guest was
19:18
actually the german emperor at that time
19:20
kaiser villain ii i am impressed
19:23
what a feat but then also as we might
19:26
know in the 1920s Berlin was the most
19:28
trendiest city in Europe everybody came
19:30
here we had from Charlie Chaplin overall
19:33
famous people at that time staying here
19:35
was us where the Russians are residing
19:37
at the art floor convinced so it was
19:39
really the place to be it was always
19:42
updated unfortunately destroyed during
19:44
the Second World War
19:45
Oliver is that true that the Adlon was
19:47
destroyed just the last few days
19:50
of the world Second World War in what
19:53
1945 very unlucky the hotel was really
19:57
one of the last buildings that got
19:58
destroyed in Berlin but what to do what
20:03
could be done we are very very positive

04:31
because New York loves to travel but
04:34
Oliver we want to know about you at
04:36
first how do I get you first of all I
04:39
arrived in Berlin and taking over the
04:41
optin competing skee-ball want to have
04:43
years ago so I'm pretty new to town but
04:45
I have worked many many years before in
04:47
Berlin and several different positions
04:48
before maybe two to start with it all my
04:52
my career started back in western
04:54
Germany city close to Hannover I used to
04:57
travel a lot with my father whenever he
04:59
had a business trip he took me RISM I
05:01
was staying in beautiful hotels I was
05:03
waiting for him was my soda at the bar
05:06
in the evening and I found it extremely
05:08
fancy what did you dad do
05:10
my dad was selling furniture oh so you
05:14
travel
05:14
all over Europe and ever had holidays in
05:16
school I was able to come with him we
05:17
both enjoyed it I enjoyed the hotels the
05:19
luxury the pools the bars as I said so I
05:22
saw to tell business extremely fancy so
05:24
when I started my apprenticeship so you
05:26
might know in Germany it's it's a
05:27
professional you start to learn for 3
05:29
years we saw hotels school once a week
05:31
and four days in a in a hotel in every
05:34
position so you work as a cook you work
05:35
in the stewarding department in the
05:37
restaurants you're working rooms
05:38
division so you have a very great
05:40
overview over the business alone really
05:42
every detail as well as you get your
05:45
school diploma and after three years you
05:46
certified Hotel II and what I did after
05:49
my apprenticeship I wanted to go to
05:50
Berlin at that time Westbourne still
05:52
divided city extremely interesting for a
05:55
young gentleman and I started here at
05:57
the reception of the Intercontinental
05:59
Hotel in West Berlin extremely
06:02
interesting time still east-west you had
06:04
to cross a ball or the wall was there so
06:06
I experienced it all first time was
06:08
there a lot of money to be spent it was
06:11
divided and actually for the eastern
06:12
Germans wasn't possible to cross the
06:14
border into West Berlin yeah so West
06:16
Berlin was only reachable by car through
06:18
the customs do the gates or obviously by
06:21
airplane it was an international city
06:24
but like an island maybe that describes
06:26
his best the big island you didn't see
06:28
the wall every minute of your life but
06:30
sure it was a very special situation but
06:33
still a blooming city interesting good
06:35
business and for a young gentleman at
06:37
that time sure the place to be in
06:39
Germany maybe in the heart of Europe
06:49
parties celebrities VIPs shoe everything
06:54
party's not so much I was more
06:55
interested into the culture part yes if
06:57
I remember correctly I'm not so sure
06:59
about that who do the place to be it is
07:03
truly the place to be right here the Sun
07:07
is coming out
07:08
overlooking this amazing historic
07:11
Brandenburg Gate however it's all about
07:14
education a major part of your education
07:17
you've got in the United States
07:19
absolutely right you know so after my my
07:21
diploma here back in Germany and before
07:23
the high school had the opportunity to
07:26
work in Miami for InterContinental
07:27
Hotels moved on to Obama's iris for a
07:30
year and a half then I had the chance
07:32
which we'll never forget because it was
07:34
grace that great time and great
07:35
education I went to Cornell University
07:37
upstate New York I concentrated their
07:40
own sales and marketing mainly so the
07:42
last five and a half years I spent in
07:43
Moscow before Berlin I opened there the
07:46
ritz-carlton Moscow right on the red
07:47
square what an opportunity because you
07:50
know the relationship between Moscow
07:51
Russia and Germany very close only two
07:53
and a half hours flight with a lot of
07:55
Russian business in Berlin as well that
07:58
helped me getting here to Berlin taking
08:00
over the art one and then he said you
08:03
know concentrate on this property which
08:04
has a fabulous history and with new
08:06
management skills with a young team
08:08
selecting the right people in the a
08:10
endowment and we're trying to create
08:12
experiences we're not selling a location
08:14
or product sure that many places in
08:16
Berlin where you can sleep well where
08:18
you can you know have a decent meal and
08:21
they might not have the location but at
08:24
the end of the day it all comes together
08:25
even that location was a bad service
08:27
would not be a nice experience and I
08:29
believe truly in the power of our ladies
08:31
and gentlemen creating an experience for
08:33
every guest which is memorable which is
08:35
exciting which is you're gonna
08:37
communicate about afterwards that has to
08:39
be that Wow and when you create that Wow
08:42
and that every day was every customer I
08:43
think you can really change the world
08:45
you have a wonderful wonderful spa here
08:48
very luxurious very intimate at the same
08:51
time I felt very cozy any time you can
08:55
have a treatment as well and that is
08:58
very important now building this Spa is
09:01
that something what has been
09:03
done recently did it come under your
09:06
umbrella tell us about it it was right
09:08
from the beginning when this hotel was
09:10
reconstructed after unification in
09:12
Berlin and was rebuilt on the original
09:14
spot of the Papillon convinced kilter
09:16
before that is where where the gold was
09:19
acid it was historically to build the
09:21
very best hotel in the world and sure
09:24
enough in a city location even so it's
09:26
mainly a business hotel you want to
09:28
offer a spa which is out of this world
09:30
and with the art on day spa from the
09:32
architecture from the whole atmosphere
09:34
that is it's a spa in the city
09:38
it is truly carrying you away and that
09:41
is what a lot of our customers enjoy you
09:43
have the option it's not a must but you
09:45
have that option and that is really what
09:46
a world class hotel should offer I saw
09:49
downstairs in the lobby there was a big
09:50
sign foreign ministry Allyson
09:53
ministerium I can say that yeah foreign
09:57
ministry means you meet a lot of very
09:59
influential people here sure this is a
10:02
home to be in Berlin the German
10:05
government as well as a lot of
10:06
international governments use the
10:08
article Pinsky as their home of choice
10:10
when they travel to the capital of
10:12
Germany it's our honor having these
10:14
guests here lots of state visit the US
10:16
president stayed at the artwork and
10:18
Pinsky many others you will please
10:20
understand and appreciate also as your
10:22
viewers we cannot really talk about our
10:25
guests but you liked our president very
10:27
much enjoyed and jointly before also in
10:29
Russia so it's it's a great visit it's
10:32
it's an great experience to have a state
10:34
visit like that you also had quite a few
10:37
personalities here what was it like to
10:39
have them here rather demanding I can
10:43
imagine probably difficult people to be
10:45
around I wouldn't call it difficult I
10:47
would call it challenging and that's
10:48
what we like that's our profession too
10:50
to having the most challenging customer
10:52
and guests to satisfy I can proudly say
10:56
that the Artem Kempinski is prepared for
10:58
that as we have so many celebratory so
11:00
many state visits people who really have
11:02
very special requests we're prepared for
11:04
that
11:04
I have a team of eight concierge if you
11:07
need a helicopter in 20 minutes we're
11:08
gonna have a heavy but this is about
11:11
seven stars you received last night you
11:15
a team you and you
11:16
the most distinguished hospitality award
11:19
what was it like tell me you see you see
11:21
it in my eyes I'm sure you don't much
11:23
like what what can be better than to get
11:25
such a prestigious award which is
11:27
recognizing the hard work of our ladies
11:30
and gentlemen every day because all of
11:32
them together create that feeling which
11:34
is then reflecting in an award like that
11:36
so we're very proud very happy we
11:38
celebrated today all together as a team
11:40
because as I said it's it's another
11:43
confirmation that we on the right track
11:45
that we do something maybe a little bit
11:47
better than others that makes me very
11:49
proud to have this hotel with this award
11:51
is a very special feature what I loved
12:03
is of course meeting your artist he
12:06
helped me out with us they literally
12:08
just me I looked up all his art on the
12:11
website and and we want you all to know
12:14
that you were displaying his art here
12:16
all over the hotel though it is a rather
12:20
elegant style it pops up the whole
12:23
dining room and makes it a lot of fun I
12:26
thought we are very proud um I want to
12:28
work with somebody like mr. Chesney he's
12:30
a very famous artist he resides at the
12:33
Cote d'Azur he's a lot of traveling all
12:35
over Europe very well-known great art
12:38
when I saw the art is it is exhibited
12:40
now in our restaurant we suppose all the
12:42
bright colors I thought Spring has
12:44
arrived in Berlin because definitely
12:47
it's its energy its colors really
12:49
something which is adding to our benefit
12:52
of having this location having these
12:54
guests here at the artwork and Pinsky
12:55
which you can also enjoy the art and
12:57
maybe more interesting than a museum
12:59
visit and it was pleasure great pleasure
13:02

hosting you thank you history we cannot
18:25
forget to talk about the history of this
18:28
amazing place see our American history
18:31
is merely three hundred years old so we
18:34
are relatively young in comparison to
18:37
you guys here in Germany yep okay Pinsky
18:40
was originally opened on the 23rd of
18:41
October 1907 by a gentleman called
18:44
Lorenz Appling his dream his vision was
18:47
to open the very best product hotel in
18:51
Europe he built for two years spent a
18:53
hundred million gold mark at that time
18:56
that was then already a lot that was
18:58
then already Lonnie but most exciting it
19:00
was a first hotel with electric power it
19:04
was a first hotel was hot and cold
19:05
running water a lot of a lot of guests
19:09
and all over society were excited about
19:11
this building in this location and their
19:14
modernity the the possibilities the
19:17
building had the first guest was
19:18
actually the german emperor at that time
19:20
kaiser villain ii i am impressed
19:23
what a feat but then also as we might
19:26
know in the 1920s Berlin was the most
19:28
trendiest city in Europe everybody came
19:30
here we had from Charlie Chaplin overall
19:33
famous people at that time staying here
19:35
was us where the Russians are residing
19:37
at the art floor convinced so it was
19:39
really the place to be it was always
19:42
updated unfortunately destroyed during
19:44
the Second World War
19:45
Oliver is that true that the Adlon was
19:47
destroyed just the last few days
19:50
of the world Second World War in what
19:53
1945 very unlucky the hotel was really
19:57
one of the last buildings that got
19:58
destroyed in Berlin but what to do what
20:03
could be done we are very very positive
20:07
and happy about that we found the right
20:09
people who believed in that history and
20:11
we built this famous building this
20:14
famous icon of hotel industry back in
20:16
Berlin after unification and today again
20:19
there is the loans at one hotel run by
20:22
convinced key and we're very very proud
20:24
to be here you certainly may be proud of
20:26
that Oliver and for the fact that you
20:29
came along just under two years ago took
20:32
over the other had lost a little bit of
20:35
its glamour and could we say that I
20:40
think you know challenging times
20:42
obviously at the financial crisis Berlin
20:44
was maybe not not being as much fancy
20:47
anymore
20:47
not only the Africa Pinsky came back all
20:50
to the city came back and then as I
20:52
truly believe the right team makes it
20:54
happen laughs there's no no reason you
20:56
know to to think oh is the art and I'm
20:58

04:34
Oliver we want to know about you at
04:36
first how do I get you first of all I
04:39
arrived in Berlin and taking over the
04:41
optin competing skee-ball want to have
04:43
years ago so I'm pretty new to town but
04:45
I have worked many many years before in
04:47
Berlin and several different positions
04:48
before maybe two to start with it all my
04:52
my career started back in western
04:54
Germany city close to Hannover I used to
04:57
travel a lot with my father whenever he
04:59
had a business trip he took me RISM I
05:01
was staying in beautiful hotels I was
05:03
waiting for him was my soda at the bar
05:06
in the evening and I found it extremely
05:08
fancy what did you dad do
05:10
my dad was selling furniture oh so you
05:14
travel
05:14
all over Europe and ever had holidays in
05:16
school I was able to come with him we
05:17
both enjoyed it I enjoyed the hotels the
05:19
luxury the pools the bars as I said so I
05:22
saw to tell business extremely fancy so
05:24
when I started my apprenticeship so you
05:26
might know in Germany it's it's a
05:27
professional you start to learn for 3
05:29
years we saw hotels school once a week
05:31
and four days in a in a hotel in every
05:34
position so you work as a cook you work
05:35
in the stewarding department in the
05:37
restaurants you're working rooms
05:38
division so you have a very great
05:40
overview over the business alone really
05:42
every detail as well as you get your
05:45
school diploma and after three years you
05:46
certified Hotel II and what I did after
05:49
my apprenticeship I wanted to go to
05:50
Berlin at that time Westbourne still
05:52
divided city extremely interesting for a
05:55
young gentleman and I started here at
05:57
the reception of the Intercontinental
05:59
Hotel in West Berlin extremely
06:02
interesting time still east-west you had
06:04
to cross a ball or the wall was there so
06:06
I experienced it all first time was
06:08
there a lot of money to be spent it was
06:11
divided and actually for the eastern
06:12
Germans wasn't possible to cross the
06:14
border into West Berlin yeah so West
06:16
Berlin was only reachable by car through
06:18
the customs do the gates or obviously by
06:21
airplane it was an international city
06:24
but like an island maybe that describes
06:26
his best the big island you didn't see
06:28
the wall every minute of your life but
06:30
sure it was a very special situation but
06:33
still a blooming city interesting good
06:35
business and for a young gentleman at
06:37
that time sure the place to be in
06:39
Germany maybe in the heart of Europe
06:49
parties celebrities VIPs shoe everything
06:54
party's not so much I was more
06:55
interested into the culture part yes if
06:57
I remember correctly I'm not so sure
06:59
about that who do the place to be it is
07:03
truly the place to be right here the Sun
07:07
is coming out
07:08
overlooking this amazing historic
07:11
Brandenburg Gate however it's all about
07:14
education a major part of your education
07:17
you've got in the United States
07:19
absolutely right you know so after my my
07:21
diploma here back in Germany and before
07:23
the high school had the opportunity to
07:26
work in Miami for InterContinental
07:27
Hotels moved on to Obama's iris for a
07:30
year and a half then I had the chance
07:32
which we'll never forget because it was
07:34
grace that great time and great
07:35
education I went to Cornell University
07:37
upstate New York I concentrated their
07:40
own sales and marketing mainly so the
07:42
last five and a half years I spent in
07:43
Moscow before Berlin I opened there the
07:46
ritz-carlton Moscow right on the red
07:47
square what an opportunity because you
07:50
know the relationship between Moscow
07:51
Russia and Germany very close only two
07:53
and a half hours flight with a lot of
07:55
Russian business in Berlin as well that
07:58
helped me getting here to Berlin taking
08:00
over the art one and then he said you
08:03
know concentrate on this property which
08:04
has a fabulous history and with new
08:06
management skills with a young team
08:08
selecting the right people in the a
08:10
endowment and we're trying to create
08:12
experiences we're not selling a location
08:14
or product sure that many places in
08:16
Berlin where you can sleep well where
08:18
you can you know have a decent meal and
08:21
they might not have the location but at
08:24
the end of the day it all comes together
08:25
even that location was a bad service
08:27
would not be a nice experience and I
08:29
believe truly in the power of our ladies
08:31
and gentlemen creating an experience for
08:33
every guest which is memorable which is
08:35
exciting which is you're gonna
08:37
communicate about afterwards that has to
08:39
be that Wow and when you create that Wow
08:42
and that every day was every customer I
08:43
think you can really change the world
08:45
you have a wonderful wonderful spa here
08:48
very luxurious very intimate at the same
08:51
time I felt very cozy any time you can
08:55
have a treatment as well and that is
08:58
very important now building this Spa is
09:01
that something what has been
09:03
done recently did it come under your
09:06
umbrella tell us about it it was right
09:08
from the beginning when this hotel was
09:10
reconstructed after unification in
09:12
Berlin and was rebuilt on the original
09:14
spot of the Papillon convinced kilter
09:16
before that is where where the gold was
09:19
acid it was historically to build the
09:21
very best hotel in the world and sure
09:24
enough in a city location even so it's
09:26
mainly a business hotel you want to
09:28
offer a spa which is out of this world
09:30
and with the art on day spa from the
09:32
architecture from the whole atmosphere
09:34
that is it's a spa in the city
09:38
it is truly carrying you away and that
09:41
is what a lot of our customers enjoy you
09:43
have the option it's not a must but you
09:45
have that option and that is really what
09:46
a world class hotel should offer I saw
09:49
downstairs in the lobby there was a big
09:50
sign foreign ministry Allyson
09:53
ministerium I can say that yeah foreign
09:57
ministry means you meet a lot of very
09:59
influential people here sure this is a
10:02
home to be in Berlin the German
10:05
government as well as a lot of
10:06
international governments use the
10:08
article Pinsky as their home of choice
10:10
when they travel to the capital of
10:12
Germany it's our honor having these
10:14
guests here lots of state visit the US
10:16
president stayed at the artwork and
10:18
Pinsky many others you will please
10:20
understand and appreciate also as your
10:22
viewers we cannot really talk about our
10:25
guests but you liked our president very
10:27
much enjoyed and jointly before also in
10:29
Russia so it's it's a great visit it's
10:32
it's an great experience to have a state
10:34
visit like that you also had quite a few
10:37
personalities here what was it like to
10:39
have them here rather demanding I can
10:43
imagine probably difficult people to be
10:45 [SUBTITLES_PART2] => around I wouldn't call it difficult I
10:47
would call it challenging and that's
10:48
what we like that's our profession too
10:50
to having the most challenging customer
10:52
and guests to satisfy I can proudly say
10:56
that the Artem Kempinski is prepared for
10:58
that as we have so many celebratory so
11:00
many state visits people who really have
11:02
very special requests we're prepared for
11:04
that
11:04
I have a team of eight concierge if you

11:11
seven stars you received last night you
11:15
a team you and you
11:16
the most distinguished hospitality award
11:19
what was it like tell me you see you see
11:21
it in my eyes I'm sure you don't much
11:23
like what what can be better than to get
11:25
such a prestigious award which is
11:27
recognizing the hard work of our ladies
11:30
and gentlemen every day because all of
11:32
them together create that feeling which
11:34
is then reflecting in an award like that
11:36
so we're very proud very happy we
11:38
celebrated today all together as a team
11:40
because as I said it's it's another
11:43
confirmation that we on the right track
11:45
that we do something maybe a little bit
11:47
better than others that makes me very
11:49
proud to have this hotel with this award
11:51
is a very special feature what I loved
12:03
is of course meeting your artist he
12:06
helped me out with us they literally
12:08
just me I looked up all his art on the
12:11
website and and we want you all to know
12:14
that you were displaying his art here
12:16
all over the hotel though it is a rather
12:20
elegant style it pops up the whole
12:23
dining room and makes it a lot of fun I
12:26
thought we are very proud um I want to
12:28
work with somebody like mr. Chesney he's
12:30
a very famous artist he resides at the
12:33
Cote d'Azur he's a lot of traveling all
12:35
over Europe very well-known great art
12:38
when I saw the art is it is exhibited
12:40
now in our restaurant we suppose all the
12:42
bright colors I thought Spring has
12:44
arrived in Berlin because definitely
12:47
it's its energy its colors really
12:49
something which is adding to our benefit
12:52
of having this location having these
12:54
guests here at the artwork and Pinsky
12:55
which you can also enjoy the art and
12:57
maybe more interesting than a museum
12:59
visit and it was pleasure great pleasure
13:02

18:20
hosting you thank you history we cannot
18:25
forget to talk about the history of this
18:28
amazing place see our American history
18:31
is merely three hundred years old so we
18:34
are relatively young in comparison to
18:37
you guys here in Germany yep okay Pinsky
18:40
was originally opened on the 23rd of
18:41
October 1907 by a gentleman called
18:44
Lorenz Appling his dream his vision was
18:47
to open the very best product hotel in
18:51
Europe he built for two years spent a
18:53
hundred million gold mark at that time
18:56
that was then already a lot that was
18:58
then already Lonnie but most exciting it
19:00
was a first hotel with electric power it
19:04
was a first hotel was hot and cold
19:05
running water a lot of a lot of guests
19:09
and all over society were excited about
19:11
this building in this location and their
19:14
modernity the the possibilities the
19:17
building had the first guest was
19:18
actually the german emperor at that time
19:20
kaiser villain ii i am impressed
19:23
what a feat but then also as we might
19:26
know in the 1920s Berlin was the most
19:28
trendiest city in Europe everybody came
19:30
here we had from Charlie Chaplin overall
19:33
famous people at that time staying here
19:35
was us where the Russians are residing
19:37
at the art floor convinced so it was
19:39
really the place to be it was always
19:42
updated unfortunately destroyed during
19:44
the Second World War
19:45
Oliver is that true that the Adlon was
19:47
destroyed just the last few days
19:50
of the world Second World War in what
19:53
1945 very unlucky the hotel was really
19:57
one of the last buildings that got
19:58
destroyed in Berlin but what to do what
20:03
could be done we are very very positive
20:07
and happy about that we found the right
20:09
people who believed in that history and
20:11
we built this famous building this
20:14
famous icon of hotel industry back in
20:16
Berlin after unification and today again
20:19
there is the loans at one hotel run by
20:22
convinced key and we're very very proud
20:24
to be here you certainly may be proud of
20:26
that Oliver and for the fact that you
20:29
came along just under two years ago took
20:32
over the other had lost a little bit of
20:35
its glamour and could we say that I
20:40
think you know challenging times
20:42
obviously at the financial crisis Berlin
20:44
was maybe not not being as much fancy
20:47
anymore
20:47
not only the Africa Pinsky came back all
20:50
to the city came back and then as I
20:52
truly believe the right team makes it
20:54
happen laughs there's no no reason you
20:56
know to to think oh is the art and I'm
20:58
not allowed I cannot look you know this
21:01

00:08
different neighborhood or a different
00:10
town that is close to Amsterdam but
00:12
today's my full day and I am on my way
00:16
to Amsterdam because because I have I
00:23
have three viewings which is really good
00:27
yesterday I got in and I was exhausted
00:30
but I managed to fire off some emails to
00:33
potential apartment that I want to check
00:35
out and I have to this morning and one
00:37
it later in the afternoon so I'm just
00:39
gonna go in the city and just spend the
00:41
day you know soak it all in and I'm
00:44
gonna hit go on with me because I really
00:46
want to document what kind of apartments
00:49
are there with the layouts the prices
00:51
and everything okay so if I'm 10 minutes
00:56
early to my first apartment viewing so I
00:59
thought I'd record this and share my
01:02
thoughts on what the neighborhood is
01:05
like so I came here early just to kind
01:07
of check out the neighborhood see what
01:09
it's like understand the vibe and I can
01:12
only tell that this is like a
01:14
residential area
01:17
at nine o'clock it's still very quiet so
01:20
I do like that I can also tell that this
01:22
is an ethnic area I see a lot of Muslim
01:25
people living here so that's another
01:27
thing the only downside of this place
01:30
that I already know is that it's a
01:31
little far from the center it's a
01:32
10-minute walk from the metro station
01:34
and that metro station takes you to the
01:38
main Central Station in Amsterdam but
01:41
it's not I think I don't I don't even
01:46
know how long the bike ride would be to
01:48
my work I'd have to figure that out but
01:49
it is like quite far from like the main
01:52
half ring of Amsterdam and also this
01:56
place is slightly more than what we want
01:59
to pay it's 1495 excluding utilities and
02:04
we really wanted to keep it under 1,500
02:07
including everything so I'll check it
02:09
out see if I love it only if it's I
02:13
really gotta love it in order for me to
02:14
sign up for an apartment of this price
02:17
but I am seeing another one that's a
02:19
little closer to the center
02:20
that's 1395 so if it's closer to Center
02:24
and it's cheaper than this I would
02:25
assume that it's a shittier apartment
02:27
but that's what I'm gonna show you guys
02:29
will see the got there what the
02:31
differences are
02:33
but I know it feels good feels good to
02:37
be here let me just show you something
02:38
really so I'm just sitting on like a
02:41
like a park and look at this look at
02:46
this bench that is like meant for
02:48
sunbathing in the middle of Park and
02:50
there's a gloomy other so it's like
02:54
precisely little things like this that I
02:56
absolutely love about traveling I love
03:00
just seeing something mundane to
03:04
probably the locals here but something
03:07
that is so exciting for me because I'm
03:10
new and I'm here with a fresh eye and I
03:12
really find myself appreciated a lot of
03:16
things in life when I'm in a new
03:17
environment and that's why I've been
03:19
craving to you know brought again I
03:24
really don't know anything about the
03:25
Dutch culture so I'm really excited to
03:29
get to know it I have to still sign up
03:32
for a language class I last night I
03:36
[Music]
03:38
research some meetups that I'm gonna go
03:41
to like expat meetups design meetups cuz
03:45
I'm a designer so I don't know I just
03:47
want to make some friends I want to get
03:49
a bike I want to get settle down I'm
03:50
just so excited to be here but I'm
03:52
definitely not rushing in appreciating
03:55
every little step that I'm taking in
03:57
this beautiful city
03:59
[Music]
05:00
[Applause]
05:00
[Music]
05:40
good morning everyone
05:42
um it's the third day in Amsterdam and I
05:45
just woke up and I finally had like 11
05:48
hours of sleep so I feel well rested but
05:53
definitely groggy
05:55
so yesterday I just I think got a chance
05:58
to really vlog because to be honest I'm
05:59
a little embarrassed taking my camera
06:01
out so yesterday I went to go to see
06:05
three places two that were on the east
06:08
side of the town and another one on the
06:11
west side of the town the east side in
06:12
terms of location were great but the
06:16
apartments themselves were crunchy and I
06:19
think that's what you get East Side is
06:20
definitely the more desirable area and
06:22
so if it's going to be in our budget the
06:25
apartments are gonna be run down the
06:29
first place was a little Far East so I
06:32
we didn't really like that and then the
06:36
second place I had such a strong smell
06:40
of curry and I know that the smell of
06:42
curry is not something you can get rid
06:44
of it was kind of intoxicating so and
06:47
plus the the apartment was really grungy
06:49
so that didn't work out
06:51
and then I just spent the day just kind
06:52
of exploring to a city center just
06:55
soaking it all in and then in the
06:57
afternoon I saw an apartment on the west
07:01
side which you'll see and I realized
07:04
that I really don't like the
07:06
neighborhood so the west side of the
07:08
town like further than you're done is
07:11
back in the days a low-income district
07:14
so the houses are not built the same way
07:18
that is in the same Center they are
07:20
taller buildings that are just very
07:21
built for efficiency so there's no
07:23
beauty to it and i kind of obviously
07:25
just felt like any other city that i've
07:28
seen and it didn't feel special the
07:32
condo itself was pretty decent I'm
07:35
noticing that like just in general and
07:37
Amster
07:37
the condos are a lot more spacious
07:39
compared to like downtown Toronto which
07:41
is essentially like a shoebox of like
07:43
500 600 meter square or square feet
07:47
sorry square feet that's a huge 600 so
07:52
yeah so the third place yeah I don't
07:55
know I didn't feel special the
07:57
neighborhood it was also not a lot of
08:01
things were walking distance so like
08:02
there was no shop downstairs there's no
08:04
grocery store downstairs or like within
08:07
like a couple minutes of walking so I
08:09
spoke to my boyfriend yesterday and we
08:11
decided to upper budget slightly to 1500
08:16
years excluding utilities and what we
08:19
determined is that you know we moved all
08:21
the way here to Amsterdam to be
08:22
surrounded by beauty and culture and if
08:27
that means that we have to just like
08:28
tighten up our budget maybe I have to
08:30
shop a little bit less in order to be
08:32
really in it and be part of the city
08:36
center and live somewhere we're really
08:37
really imagine ourselves then so be it
08:40
so yesterday I fired off another like
08:43
huge round of emails to potential
08:45
apartment so hopefully I'll hear back
08:46
soon and I don't really know if they
08:48
work on weekends it's Saturday today but
08:51
today I have another place to go see and
08:54
I found this apartment through Facebook
08:57
and it's interesting because Oh while
09:02
it's the closest to the city center out
09:04
of all four it's right by the water so
09:07
from the half circle it's on the west
09:10
side but right by the water and from
09:13
what I understand all the developments
09:16
by the water are newer and kind of built
09:21
for to address the need for a lack of
09:24
housing in Amsterdam so I hear there's a
09:28
lot of just tall buildings so I'll just
09:30
have to see what it's like I'm gonna
09:31
walk there and everything in the bus if
09:33
I can really soak it all in
09:36
we'll see yeah oh so another thing this
09:40
place it's in our budget but there in
09:42
Amsterdam there's this thing called
09:43
agency fee in Toronto as a renter you
09:47
just pay the you know you know your
09:50
monthly rent and deposit and that's it
09:52
it's really the tenants that work with
09:55
the agents and pay the agents in order
09:57
to find somebody live in your location
10:00
or in your housing here it's the
10:04
opposite just because the markets
10:06
different you pay as a renter to the
10:08
agency so a couple places quoted me like
10:16
400 500 euros which is okay this place
10:21
1200 euros that's almost a one month
10:25
rent so once again I really have to love
10:30
this place
10:31
in order for us to pay that but well to
10:35
be honest I'm not very optimistic I know
10:37
it's not going to be and your central
10:39
but we'll see I'll take you along with
10:41
me
10:43
[Music]
11:38
this is like a low-income area lady that
11:44
I spoke to yesterday about some real
11:45
estate she said that in Amsterdam if a
11:48
building has more than three floors it
11:50
means that it was built for a little bit
11:52
compelling because obviously when you
11:54
build up more people can live in it so
11:56
all the buildings here are four five six
11:59
floors
12:00
while I was waiting there was a couple
12:02
of other people waiting as well and
12:05
there was a couple of like junkies
12:07
outside kind of hanging around one of
12:10
them approached a couple to ask for
12:13
money they do that whole typical oh you
12:19
know I have to go somewhere I don't have
12:20
anything
12:21
they got sketched out on left I stuck
12:23
around because I'm here anyway whatever
12:26
let's try it but in that time that I
12:28
stuck around he approached me as well
12:31
it's just uncomfortable right like you
12:34
don't really want to live where the job
12:35
and then the apartment itself was decent
12:40
I don't know maybe you guys minded but I
12:44
do mind it I know it's so hard to get
12:47
rid of personal a big fan of so
12:53
it's not feeling good about it so I'm
12:56
realizing that sub 1500 in Amsterdam -
13:00
means you're gonna get grungy places so
13:04
I know we increase our budget to like
13:07
1500 plus but maybe we even have to go
13:11
higher I'm not sure I'm not sure but
13:13
yeah no dice
13:21
mr. budget I forgot about emails again
13:24
and today I'm seeing three different
13:26
places all between the budget uh fifteen
13:29
fifteen sixteen with dread excluding
13:32
utility than Wi-Fi so it's been really
13:38
easy to find a lot of options in this
13:41
price range
13:41
I even have rejected at some of viewing
13:46
because now I know better I know what
13:49
look out for like I definitely know what
13:52
neighborhood someone her boy so the
13:55
first one I'm seeing today is really in
13:57
the center center of Amsterdam I'm right
14:01
here right now looking around and I can
14:03
see that it's gonna get really loud here
14:05
definitely wear like a lot of bars are
14:08
it's not the top of the rink in the very
14:11
middle the second place that we're
14:13
seeing it's a two-bedroom for 1600
14:17
and it's actually at the cut of the West
14:21
End so right before it gets cut she does
14:24
for the apartment from the looks of it
14:28
it's definitely like simple nicest place
14:30
in terms of recently renovated a third
14:33
place is actually on the East End which
14:36
is the most popular area right now
14:39
and I haven't even been there yet so I'm
14:41
really excited to check it out so
14:47
[Music]
15:46
[Applause]
15:46
[Music]
16:35
good morning yet another day in Harlem
16:40
yesterday I saw three four I can't even
16:46
keep track anymore
16:47
one that I absolutely loved my boyfriend
16:51
loved it as well so I sent out an email
16:54
saying hey I'm interested in like you
16:56
know making an offer
16:57
now I kind of kind of apartment that
17:02
they're gonna be like million other
17:04
couples interested in I'm not really
17:05
sure how the real estate akhirin is
17:08
going to decide whose profile they
17:10
forward to the landlord to review but
17:13
I'm like really nervous about it
17:16
overall like all the apartments that I
17:18
saw yesterday were really decent it's
17:20
just now I'm getting picky it was
17:22
beautiful it was really like
17:24
the only doubt is that it starts in
17:27
August first but you can always find a
17:30
room for one month and I
17:31
I'd rather get on and move into the
17:33
dream home than you know
17:37
but so today it continues the search
17:40
continues I'm seeing through more places
17:42
because you just never know if you're
17:43
gonna get rejected or not you can't go
17:45
to put magazine multiple baskets so
17:47
that's what I'm doing today let's go
17:54
[Music]
18:52
[Applause]
18:52
[Music]
19:33
I'm back I had another full day of four
19:37
viewings and I can't say that any of
19:40
them went well the first one was so bad
19:43
that I didn't even film it second one
19:48
was good it was like having all the
19:52
potential but it was really run down and
19:54
the real estate agent told me that they
19:57
didn't really bother to like you know
20:00
update to update the furniture and paint
20:02
the place before they started viewing
20:05
and they said that's an option like I
20:08
can request such a thing but the fact
20:10
that the landlord didn't bother doing
20:11
that and was kind of waiting to see if
20:14
somebody complains to do it
20:16
gives me a bad impression maybe I'm
20:19
being picky maybe I'm being ridiculous
20:20
but it's I haven't even been here for a
20:22
week so I'm not that desperate yet I'll
20:24
keep that in mind I'll keep this one in
20:27
mind what I do get desperate because it
20:29
is beautiful in terms of the view the
20:31
spaciousness the storage third one
20:34
amazing location but it just was a
20:39
little too small for two people I think
20:41
we would have bumped into each other a
20:43
lot and just like I don't know I was old
20:47
yeah
20:48
no not for that price and then the
20:52
fourth one actually was the biggest one
20:55
that we saw a little older a little
20:58
further but like huge like two bedrooms
21:01
that can fit two double beds but the
21:04
existing tenants there must have been
21:06
linked bunch of students or something
21:08
because I literally saw like dirty bowls
21:11
with like food crust all over the
21:13
apartment like underwear like lying
21:16
around like it was gross and like the
21:19
real-estate agent was there and he
21:21
didn't say anything he wasn't like all
21:22
I'm sorry like you know they're gross
21:24
we'll cleaned up like nothing you're
21:26
just like oh welcome like you look at
21:28
please take a look I'm like if I don't
21:31
know like
21:32
I would I I don't know so that's another
21:37
like potential if I get desperate and I
21:42
say if I get desperate because I did
21:44
show interest to two of the apartments
21:47
that I saw yesterday the one with the
21:49
canal view and then the one right in the
21:52
center my heart is that on the canal one
21:55
like I've been thinking about it all day
21:57
comparing all of the apartments to the
21:59
canal one and I know it's wrong you know
22:02
it's wrong to fall in love here in
22:05
Amsterdam with an apartment but I
22:06
already have and I'm now screwed and you
22:11
know when you submit on that application
22:12
for them to review you submit your
22:14
passport copy and your salary or work
22:19
contract so that they know that you're
22:21
know you're eligible to pay the monthly
22:22
rent so I did that and they both told me
22:25
that it look good and that they will get
22:29
back to me by the end of the week it's
22:31
only Tuesday
22:33
I'm like losing sleep over this stuff
22:35
I'm stressed but I'm also over it so
22:39
tomorrow I didn't do any more bookings
22:41
actually I don't have any more bookings
22:43
I've seen more than ten now and I think
22:44
that's enough for now so tomorrow I'm
22:49
going to treat myself to a day away from
22:51
the city the day away from errands and
22:53
you know checking my phone constantly
22:56
trying to like figure out what's good
22:59
what's bad I'm just gonna get out and
23:01
maybe go to the beach maybe you go see
23:03
one of many castles maybe go to add them
23:06
at the cheese or beamster and have some
23:10
cheese I don't know something that's not
23:12
in the city apartment viewing yeah maybe
23:19
I'll take you guys along with me but
23:21
that's my update and hopefully hopefully
23:24
hopefully we get the Canal one because
23:27
it's freaking beautiful and I'm I can
23:29
see myself living there and that's all I
23:32
want that's all I want [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:00
so this is my official first day and
00:05
we'll Harlem I'm staying in Harlem
00:07
because I just wanted to check out a
00:08
different neighborhood or a different
00:10
town that is close to Amsterdam but
00:12
today's my full day and I am on my way
00:16
to Amsterdam because because I have I
00:23
have three viewings which is really good
00:27
yesterday I got in and I was exhausted
00:30
but I managed to fire off some emails to
00:33
potential apartment that I want to check
00:35
out and I have to this morning and one
00:37
it later in the afternoon so I'm just
00:39
gonna go in the city and just spend the
00:41
day you know soak it all in and I'm
00:44
gonna hit go on with me because I really
00:46
want to document what kind of apartments
00:49
are there with the layouts the prices
00:51
and everything okay so if I'm 10 minutes
00:56
early to my first apartment viewing so I
00:59
thought I'd record this and share my
01:02
thoughts on what the neighborhood is
01:05
like so I came here early just to kind
01:07
of check out the neighborhood see what
01:09
it's like understand the vibe and I can
01:12
only tell that this is like a
01:14
residential area
01:17
at nine o'clock it's still very quiet so
01:20
I do like that I can also tell that this
01:22
is an ethnic area I see a lot of Muslim
01:25
people living here so that's another
01:27
thing the only downside of this place
01:30
that I already know is that it's a
01:31
little far from the center it's a
01:32
10-minute walk from the metro station
01:34
and that metro station takes you to the
01:38
main Central Station in Amsterdam but
01:41
it's not I think I don't I don't even
01:46
know how long the bike ride would be to
01:48
my work I'd have to figure that out but
01:49
it is like quite far from like the main
01:52
half ring of Amsterdam and also this
01:56
place is slightly more than what we want
01:59
to pay it's 1495 excluding utilities and
02:04
we really wanted to keep it under 1,500
02:07
including everything so I'll check it
02:09
out see if I love it only if it's I
02:13
really gotta love it in order for me to
02:14
sign up for an apartment of this price
02:17
but I am seeing another one that's a
02:19
little closer to the center
02:20
that's 1395 so if it's closer to Center
02:24
and it's cheaper than this I would
02:25
assume that it's a shittier apartment
02:27
but that's what I'm gonna show you guys
02:29
will see the got there what the
02:31
differences are
02:33
but I know it feels good feels good to
02:37
be here let me just show you something
02:38
really so I'm just sitting on like a
02:41
like a park and look at this look at
02:46
this bench that is like meant for
02:48
sunbathing in the middle of Park and
02:50
there's a gloomy other so it's like
02:54
precisely little things like this that I
02:56
absolutely love about traveling I love
03:00
just seeing something mundane to
03:04
probably the locals here but something
03:07
that is so exciting for me because I'm
03:10
new and I'm here with a fresh eye and I
03:12
really find myself appreciated a lot of
03:16
things in life when I'm in a new
03:17
environment and that's why I've been
03:19
craving to you know brought again I
03:24
really don't know anything about the
03:25
Dutch culture so I'm really excited to
03:29
get to know it I have to still sign up
03:32
for a language class I last night I
03:36
[Music]
03:38
research some meetups that I'm gonna go
03:41
to like expat meetups design meetups cuz
03:45
I'm a designer so I don't know I just
03:47
want to make some friends I want to get
03:49
a bike I want to get settle down I'm
03:50
just so excited to be here but I'm
03:52
definitely not rushing in appreciating
03:55
every little step that I'm taking in
03:57
this beautiful city
03:59
[Music]
05:00
[Applause]
05:00
[Music]
05:40
good morning everyone
05:42
um it's the third day in Amsterdam and I
05:45
just woke up and I finally had like 11
05:48
hours of sleep so I feel well rested but
05:53
definitely groggy
05:55
so yesterday I just I think got a chance
05:58
to really vlog because to be honest I'm
05:59
a little embarrassed taking my camera
06:01
out so yesterday I went to go to see
06:05
three places two that were on the east
06:08
side of the town and another one on the
06:11
west side of the town the east side in
06:12
terms of location were great but the
06:16
apartments themselves were crunchy and I
06:19
think that's what you get East Side is
06:20
definitely the more desirable area and
06:22
so if it's going to be in our budget the
06:25
apartments are gonna be run down the
06:29
first place was a little Far East so I
06:32
we didn't really like that and then the
06:36
second place I had such a strong smell
06:40
of curry and I know that the smell of
06:42
curry is not something you can get rid
06:44
of it was kind of intoxicating so and
06:47
plus the the apartment was really grungy
06:49
so that didn't work out
06:51
and then I just spent the day just kind
06:52
of exploring to a city center just
06:55
soaking it all in and then in the
06:57
afternoon I saw an apartment on the west
07:01
side which you'll see and I realized
07:04
that I really don't like the
07:06
neighborhood so the west side of the
07:08
town like further than you're done is
07:11
back in the days a low-income district
07:14
so the houses are not built the same way
07:18
that is in the same Center they are
07:20
taller buildings that are just very
07:21
built for efficiency so there's no
07:23
beauty to it and i kind of obviously
07:25
just felt like any other city that i've
07:28
seen and it didn't feel special the
07:32
condo itself was pretty decent I'm
07:35
noticing that like just in general and
07:37
Amster
07:37
the condos are a lot more spacious
07:39
compared to like downtown Toronto which
07:41
is essentially like a shoebox of like
07:43
500 600 meter square or square feet
07:47
sorry square feet that's a huge 600 so
07:52
yeah so the third place yeah I don't
07:55
know I didn't feel special the
07:57
neighborhood it was also not a lot of
08:01
things were walking distance so like
08:02
there was no shop downstairs there's no
08:04
grocery store downstairs or like within
08:07
like a couple minutes of walking so I
08:09
spoke to my boyfriend yesterday and we
08:11
decided to upper budget slightly to 1500
08:16
years excluding utilities and what we
08:19
determined is that you know we moved all
08:21
the way here to Amsterdam to be
08:22
surrounded by beauty and culture and if
08:27
that means that we have to just like
08:28
tighten up our budget maybe I have to
08:30
shop a little bit less in order to be
08:32
really in it and be part of the city
08:36
center and live somewhere we're really
08:37
really imagine ourselves then so be it
08:40
so yesterday I fired off another like
08:43
huge round of emails to potential
08:45
apartment so hopefully I'll hear back
08:46
soon and I don't really know if they
08:48
work on weekends it's Saturday today but
08:51
today I have another place to go see and
08:54
I found this apartment through Facebook
08:57
and it's interesting because Oh while
09:02
it's the closest to the city center out
09:04
of all four it's right by the water so
09:07
from the half circle it's on the west
09:10
side but right by the water and from
09:13
what I understand all the developments
09:16
by the water are newer and kind of built
09:21
for to address the need for a lack of
09:24
housing in Amsterdam so I hear there's a
09:28
lot of just tall buildings so I'll just
09:30
have to see what it's like I'm gonna
09:31
walk there and everything in the bus if
09:33
I can really soak it all in
09:36
we'll see yeah oh so another thing this
09:40
place it's in our budget but there in
09:42
Amsterdam there's this thing called
09:43
agency fee in Toronto as a renter you
09:47
just pay the you know you know your
09:50
monthly rent and deposit and that's it
09:52
it's really the tenants that work with
09:55
the agents and pay the agents in order
09:57
to find somebody live in your location
10:00
or in your housing here it's the
10:04
opposite just because the markets
10:06
different you pay as a renter to the
10:08
agency so a couple places quoted me like
10:16
400 500 euros which is okay this place
10:21
1200 euros that's almost a one month
10:25
rent so once again I really have to love
10:30
this place
10:31
in order for us to pay that but well to
10:35
be honest I'm not very optimistic I know
10:37
it's not going to be and your central
10:39
but we'll see I'll take you along with
10:41
me
10:43
[Music]
11:38
this is like a low-income area lady that
11:44
I spoke to yesterday about some real
11:45
estate she said that in Amsterdam if a
11:48
building has more than three floors it
11:50
means that it was built for a little bit
11:52
compelling because obviously when you
11:54
build up more people can live in it so
11:56
all the buildings here are four five six
11:59
floors
12:00
while I was waiting there was a couple
12:02
of other people waiting as well and
12:05
there was a couple of like junkies
12:07
outside kind of hanging around one of
12:10
them approached a couple to ask for
12:13
money they do that whole typical oh you
12:19
know I have to go somewhere I don't have
12:20
anything
12:21
they got sketched out on left I stuck
12:23
around because I'm here anyway whatever
12:26
let's try it but in that time that I
12:28
stuck around he approached me as well
12:31
it's just uncomfortable right like you
12:34
don't really want to live where the job
12:35
and then the apartment itself was decent
12:40
I don't know maybe you guys minded but I
12:44
do mind it I know it's so hard to get
12:47
rid of personal a big fan of so
12:53
it's not feeling good about it so I'm
12:56
realizing that sub 1500 in Amsterdam -
13:00
means you're gonna get grungy places so
13:04
I know we increase our budget to like
13:07
1500 plus but maybe we even have to go
13:11
higher I'm not sure I'm not sure but
13:13
yeah no dice
13:21
mr. budget I forgot about emails again
13:24
and today I'm seeing three different
13:26
places all between the budget uh fifteen
13:29
fifteen sixteen with dread excluding
13:32
utility than Wi-Fi so it's been really
13:38
easy to find a lot of options in this
13:41
price range
13:41
I even have rejected at some of viewing
13:46
because now I know better I know what
13:49
look out for like I definitely know what
13:52
neighborhood someone her boy so the
13:55
first one I'm seeing today is really in
13:57
the center center of Amsterdam I'm right
14:01
here right now looking around and I can
14:03
see that it's gonna get really loud here
14:05
definitely wear like a lot of bars are
14:08
it's not the top of the rink in the very
14:11
middle the second place that we're
14:13
seeing it's a two-bedroom for 1600
14:17
and it's actually at the cut of the West
14:21
End so right before it gets cut she does
14:24
for the apartment from the looks of it
14:28
it's definitely like simple nicest place
14:30
in terms of recently renovated a third
14:33
place is actually on the East End which
14:36
is the most popular area right now
14:39
and I haven't even been there yet so I'm
14:41
really excited to check it out so
14:47
[Music]
15:46
[Applause]
15:46
[Music]
16:35
good morning yet another day in Harlem
16:40
yesterday I saw three four I can't even
16:46
keep track anymore
16:47
one that I absolutely loved my boyfriend
16:51
loved it as well so I sent out an email
16:54
saying hey I'm interested in like you
16:56
know making an offer
16:57
now I kind of kind of apartment that
17:02
they're gonna be like million other
17:04
couples interested in I'm not really
17:05
sure how the real estate akhirin is
17:08
going to decide whose profile they
17:10
forward to the landlord to review but
17:13
I'm like really nervous about it
17:16
overall like all the apartments that I
17:18
saw yesterday were really decent it's
17:20
just now I'm getting picky it was
17:22
beautiful it was really like
17:24
the only doubt is that it starts in
17:27
August first but you can always find a
17:30
room for one month and I
17:31
I'd rather get on and move into the
17:33
dream home than you know
17:37
but so today it continues the search
17:40
continues I'm seeing through more places
17:42
because you just never know if you're
17:43
gonna get rejected or not you can't go
17:45
to put magazine multiple baskets so
17:47
that's what I'm doing today let's go
17:54
[Music]
18:52
[Applause]
18:52
[Music]
19:33
I'm back I had another full day of four
19:37
viewings and I can't say that any of
19:40
them went well the first one was so bad
19:43
that I didn't even film it second one
19:48
was good it was like having all the
19:52
potential but it was really run down and
19:54
the real estate agent told me that they
19:57
didn't really bother to like you know
20:00
update to update the furniture and paint
20:02
the place before they started viewing
20:05
and they said that's an option like I
20:08
can request such a thing but the fact
20:10
that the landlord didn't bother doing
20:11
that and was kind of waiting to see if
20:14
somebody complains to do it
20:16
gives me a bad impression maybe I'm
20:19
being picky maybe I'm being ridiculous
20:20
but it's I haven't even been here for a
20:22
week so I'm not that desperate yet I'll
20:24
keep that in mind I'll keep this one in
20:27
mind what I do get desperate because it
20:29
is beautiful in terms of the view the
20:31
spaciousness the storage third one
20:34
amazing location but it just was a
20:39
little too small for two people I think
20:41
we would have bumped into each other a
20:43
lot and just like I don't know I was old
20:47
yeah
20:48
no not for that price and then the
20:52
fourth one actually was the biggest one
20:55
that we saw a little older a little
20:58
further but like huge like two bedrooms
21:01
that can fit two double beds but the
21:04
existing tenants there must have been
21:06
linked bunch of students or something
21:08
because I literally saw like dirty bowls
21:11
with like food crust all over the
21:13
apartment like underwear like lying
21:16
around like it was gross and like the
21:19
real-estate agent was there and he
21:21
didn't say anything he wasn't like all
21:22
I'm sorry like you know they're gross
21:24
we'll cleaned up like nothing you're
21:26
just like oh welcome like you look at
21:28
please take a look I'm like if I don't
21:31
know like
21:32
I would I I don't know so that's another
21:37
like potential if I get desperate and I
21:42
say if I get desperate because I did
21:44
show interest to two of the apartments
21:47
that I saw yesterday the one with the
21:49
canal view and then the one right in the
21:52
center my heart is that on the canal one
21:55
like I've been thinking about it all day
21:57
comparing all of the apartments to the
21:59
canal one and I know it's wrong you know
22:02
it's wrong to fall in love here in
22:05
Amsterdam with an apartment but I
22:06
already have and I'm now screwed and you
22:11
know when you submit on that application
22:12
for them to review you submit your
22:14
passport copy and your salary or work
22:19
contract so that they know that you're
22:21
know you're eligible to pay the monthly
22:22
rent so I did that and they both told me
22:25
that it look good and that they will get
22:29
back to me by the end of the week it's
22:31
only Tuesday
22:33
I'm like losing sleep over this stuff
22:35
I'm stressed but I'm also over it so
22:39
tomorrow I didn't do any more bookings
22:41
actually I don't have any more bookings
22:43
I've seen more than ten now and I think
22:44
that's enough for now so tomorrow I'm
22:49
going to treat myself to a day away from
22:51
the city the day away from errands and
22:53
you know checking my phone constantly
22:56
trying to like figure out what's good
22:59
what's bad I'm just gonna get out and
23:01
maybe go to the beach maybe you go see
23:03
one of many castles maybe go to add them
23:06
at the cheese or beamster and have some
23:10
cheese I don't know something that's not
23:12
in the city apartment viewing yeah maybe
23:19
I'll take you guys along with me but
23:21
that's my update and hopefully hopefully
23:24
hopefully we get the Canal one because
23:27
it's freaking beautiful and I'm I can
23:29
see myself living there and that's all I
23:32
want that's all I want [LANG_DIR] => / [~LANG_DIR] => / [CODE] => apartment-hunting-in-amsterdam [~CODE] => apartment-hunting-in-amsterdam [EXTERNAL_ID] => 3148 [~EXTERNAL_ID] => 3148 [IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [~IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [~IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [~IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [IBLOCK_CODE] => video [~IBLOCK_CODE] => video [IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [~IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [LID] => s1 [~LID] => s1 [DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [~DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [PREVIEW_TEXT] => so this is my official first day and we'll Harlem I'm staying in Harlem because I just wanted to check out a... ) [2] => Array ( [ID] => 3147 [~ID] => 3147 [NAME] => Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Budget Room Review [~NAME] => Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Budget Room Review [DETAIL_PAGE_URL] => /video/grand-hotel-krasnapolsky-budget-room-review/ [~DETAIL_PAGE_URL] => /video/grand-hotel-krasnapolsky-budget-room-review/ [DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:00
okay little idea for a vlog first time
00:06
staying in the krasnopolskiy Hotel in
00:09
Amsterdam I booked the cheapest room
00:12
available because yeah the variety of
00:16
prices or different rooms you can have
00:18
is insane you've got sweets which go to
00:21
about 1,500 euros a night and then you
00:23
have sort of mid-range stuff 500 years a
00:25
night let's say this was the cheapest
00:27
room but apparently I've been upgraded I
00:30
was like oh how her not great even
00:32
though I had to pay an extra term of
00:34
euros in city tax or something and a
00:37
deposit which I'll get back in three
00:39
weeks because of the debit card so yeah
00:42
I was like hmm okay so so three nights I
00:48
think it's working out to be about 700
00:51
euros and yeah it's in to like brag or
00:57
anything like because it's just a basic
00:58
I'm just saying a few other what loads
01:00
of people on YouTube do like rim review
01:02
so far do one people like mixed content
01:05
other than my gambling and i will be
01:07
doing some gaming this session so this
01:09
is a quick sort of warm up if you like
01:11
so basically I'm quite impressed very
01:14
fresh very clean the door there nice big
01:18
door you got loads of storage
01:22
none of this I'll be using we have
01:26
shoehorn shoe cleaner and things you can
01:37
I don't know what those things you can
01:39
buy safe which will be putting nothing
01:41
in yep just plenty of storage to know
01:47
that's gonna be useful nothing there's
01:50
more storage in here oh look a
01:55
reflection wow that's the red version of
02:00
me and that's basically my gambling
02:03
losses for the
02:05
I'm checking know if I'm not actually I
02:16
won't be using that
02:17
I never iron anything it's exciting
02:21
isn't it now honestly no joke bro
02:23
they're so bad my nerves are there's a
02:25
mirror there
02:26
these lights are off right and I
02:29
literally I thought that was a door I
02:31
went over to it and saw myself I jumped
02:34
out of my skin
02:35
my nerves are anyway let's have
02:40
a little pan round in the room very
02:41
spacious the last time I was in
02:43
Amsterdam I had a very small room and it
02:46
felt like a prison cell and honestly
02:48
with a hangover those not what you want
02:56
beautiful cups they expressly what we
03:01
got for Complementary so every little
03:04
loop complimentary so I love how the guy
03:07
at the desk said I've upgraded you to a
03:09
king-sized bed instead of two twins yet
03:12
this looks like two twins to me so I
03:15
think that was a little bit oh oh dear
03:19
who didn't pick that up it goes oh we
03:25
got then just yeah the usual stuff
03:26
really what is that hmm English tea

the lights off because these these like
10:47
old mirrors right it's not like mirrors
10:50
here but you can close these now I don't

when you go into the bathroom before we
11:11
got turn the lights on
11:17
I can't seem to get the lights on to the

them oh there we go right so like I say
11:31
these are all mirrors down here all
11:34

a mirror there dude lovely looks yellow
12:08
on the camera but it's actually a white
12:09
light there's a hairdryer yeah it's cool
12:14
I guess you have to switch on by turning
12:20
this to you what does that do no idea
12:29
what that does and I hope you switch
12:30
from that ah there we go
12:41
that works
12:44
little blue light there and then when
12:46

clean of course look at that oh no no no
15:28
no no oh dear that looks like that could
15:35
be I mean I suspect is but in their
15:39
defense it might not be so little strong
15:44
flash on it and something I'm looking
15:54
forward to late a nice shower this is
15:59
what I want when I move out like nice or
16:01
like a wet room not like just a shower
16:03
but like a whole room look you know like
16:05
a wet room I'll ask me so nice I've
16:08
never actually use a shower that comes
16:10
down what about it I'm a done but oh
16:12
soap dish cool temperature yeah that
16:18
seems bill polished nice thing very good
16:22
well anyway that was there I've done
16:25
this sort of review in a style of me
16:27
talking that really quietly towels or
16:30
their on a table as well it's the little
16:37
things in life it's just just nice
16:38
together flat and be in a different
16:40
environment know and I'm gonna be sleep
16:41
and I know that sounds really sad and I
16:43
know people probably travel all over the
16:45
place but I don't get out much but I'll
16:48
believe you me guys I'm gonna be
16:50
traveling soon I'm gonna be traveling
16:53
because give it cool as soon as I move
16:57
up for my flat I'm gonna go no actually
17:05
it probably looks better like that now
17:07
can now it's a sculpture
17:10
I'm gonna sign off I'm perhaps ooh
17:12
pissing about yeah I'm gonna go
17:15
traveling what I'm gonna go traveling
17:18
once I move out and see some more sights
17:22
somebody been to Spain Amsterdam and
17:24
Germany so I need to see the rest of the
17:27
world but yeah I'd give this room
17:34
considering what I've sinned throughout
17:37
my visits to hotels I would give this
17:41
room hmm a 7 to 7.5 I'd say probably
17:55
seven to 7.5 and I'd give a premiere in
18:00
like a free two for just because of the
18:10
cleanliness of a Premier Inn and so
18:13
obviously there isn't like there isn't
18:14
like little touches like this and
18:15
there's just it's just just like little
18:17
touches you know it's sir but I'm sure
18:19
some of the more expensive rooms in this
18:21
hotel the friends and the posts Polsky
18:25
absolutely amazing oh and the reason why
18:27
this gets a seven actually probably a
18:29
seven one or seven point five this
18:31
particular room not much of a view
18:35
really obvious you have to pee I mean
18:38
they're like I said this Suites in this
18:39
place for fifteen hundred's I mean you
18:40
know you know I'm gonna get out for the
18:42
price I pay you know I'm gonna chill out
18:45
now I have my bankroll the casino and
18:49
other things I'm on a bit of a budget
18:52
I've only got a thousand euros on me and
18:54
that's gotta last I've already given the
18:56
taxi driver 80 it came to 60 I gave him
18:59
a tip I'm just I have to give people
19:02
tips he's a nice guy you know and he's
19:04
the people that work hard you know in
19:07
front on a living and
19:11
you know I've obviously got lucky to
19:16
have an income by not doing a
19:19
traditional nine-to-five which I'm
19:20
grateful for so people that do that and
19:24
in Iceland they providing a service
19:27
massive respect so it's always tip when
19:30
I can anyway so that's the review or
19:33
almost twenty minutes of one of the
19:37
budget rooms in the Grand Nepal ski
19:45
yep the grand press I can never
19:49
pronounce the thing the Grand
19:51
Hotel krasnopolskiy at the start of
20:02
August 2019 this is going to be a
20:09
separate video because I'm not gonna use
20:11
a 20 minute video at the start of a
20:12
casino session so you watched
20:15
all this then well thank you for
20:17
watching and out
20:30
I should remember that more often when
20:33
I'm playing and I'm in profit yeah
20:45
okay plot twist I didn't think I'd be
20:47
adding anything more to this video but
20:50
apparently this is going to be a second
20:52
room review so try to get in my other
20:57
room last night
20:59
keycard kept going red went to the
21:03
reception desk and apparently there's
21:05
been a leak I will show you the picture
21:07
now so this is the room I initially paid
21:11
for that other one that you just saw was
21:13
an upgrade a free upgrade so this is the
21:18
basic room and I mean I'm only here for
21:22
one one nope I'm a bit good because it's
21:23
just not the same so I'm gonna do a
21:25
really quick pan around to show you the
21:27
little differences so that other one was
21:29
not braided one as you can see there the
21:33
mirrors of God is literally just a
21:35
mirror now standing freely I think my
21:39
nose nailed is nailed to the wall but
21:41
yeah but those lovely mirrors have gone
21:43
I like the aesthetics of them the desk
21:47
even the desk is different doesn't have
21:49
that that of a texture on it but bonus
21:54
this works there we go so the other one
21:58
was broken is it just a touch a touch
22:03
yeah okay see look at that
22:07
so that's the bonus or whatever
22:10
differences are in this room so the
22:13
tally is now they're not there the bed
22:18
is now here not here one thing I will
22:23
say the view is better in this room you
22:27
can call that view I mean it's a lot
22:31
better than the other one
22:32
so here that's something there's a
22:35
passageway down there and there was a
22:37
cat there earlier but a black one
22:39
lucky cat I'm not doing the casino again
22:42
tonight so yeah don't know what's
22:47
changed there but yeah the bathroom just
22:50
it's just not the same it's not the same
22:52
obviously all the storage now this is
22:54
your storage before there was a lot more
22:59
and it had like red polished bits at the
23:03
bottom now you don't have any of that
23:05
it's like a come down this you know
23:07
I had a rough night it isn't and
23:10
they change your room love it minibar
23:14
still this well the mini but even the
23:16
minibar is different I mean I don't know
23:17
they just mix and match in the rooms but
23:19
I've noticed you know the other one had
23:20
a nice blue-hued and it when you open it
23:24
this just doesn't it's just yeah we got
23:28
you an expresso we'll get
23:32
ready for the bar from them it's just
23:34
not the same once again if you remember
23:35
there's all mirrors down here all
23:38
mirrors separate toilet and shower now
23:44
what do we go all in one toilet shower
23:52
without the one on top which comes down
23:57
like rain so you've just got this now
24:01
but like I said this is the one I paid
24:03
for initially they don't they don't a
24:05
free upgrade the hair dry it's not on
24:07
the wall anymore you know you just go
24:09
you've got you just a mirror there one
24:12
mirror the sink
24:14
goodbye his or her sink residue of soap
24:19
and toothpaste I've been using this room
24:21
yeah it's just it's just not the same as
24:24
the other one but I just bought show you
24:26
this is the cheapest room the other one
24:29
was a slight upgrade I don't know the
24:31
price difference but because of the leak
24:35
they've had to put me down to basic I
24:38
felt like VIP now I just feel like
24:46
you know but it's for the money it's
24:49
still it's it's nice it's just not as
24:51
nice as the other than that I really
24:53
like that have a room I think it's just
24:54
the bathroom and that shower and the
24:56
mirrors I really like the mirrors which
24:59
is now gone and just yeah it's just the
25:01
overall out it's just different and it's
25:03
just more claustrophobic and well I'm
25:06
not gonna complain you know so I hold
25:07
out that's the end so yeah
25:09
to room reviews and one bonus food this
25:14
is the ultimate basic cheap as you can
25:16
get the other one I showed you at the
25:18
start that was a free upgrade and
25:20
obviously you'd usually have to pay a
25:21
bit more for that but as you saw in the
25:25
picture it developed a leak so this was
25:29
a five minute review of this room thanks
25:32
for watching
25:33
pat the krasnopolskiy are a very good
25:37
service very clean place nice vibe - I
25:40
like it so I'd recommend staying here
25:42
again that's in your budget so yeah
25:46
thanks for watching and over I guess
26:05
no more mirrors tell me what really
26:08
already luck them but just there's no
26:09
touch
26:10
anyway yeah thanks for watching [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:00
okay little idea for a vlog first time
00:06
staying in the krasnopolskiy Hotel in
00:09
Amsterdam I booked the cheapest room
00:12
available because yeah the variety of
00:16
prices or different rooms you can have
00:18
is insane you've got sweets which go to
00:21
about 1,500 euros a night and then you
00:23
have sort of mid-range stuff 500 years a
00:25
night let's say this was the cheapest
00:27
room but apparently I've been upgraded I
00:30
was like oh how her not great even
00:32
though I had to pay an extra term of
00:34
euros in city tax or something and a
00:37
deposit which I'll get back in three
00:39
weeks because of the debit card so yeah
00:42
I was like hmm okay so so three nights I
00:48
think it's working out to be about 700
00:51
euros and yeah it's in to like brag or
00:57
anything like because it's just a basic
00:58
I'm just saying a few other what loads
01:00
of people on YouTube do like rim review
01:02
so far do one people like mixed content
01:05
other than my gambling and i will be
01:07
doing some gaming this session so this
01:09
is a quick sort of warm up if you like
01:11
so basically I'm quite impressed very
01:14
fresh very clean the door there nice big
01:18
door you got loads of storage
01:22
none of this I'll be using we have
01:26
shoehorn shoe cleaner and things you can
01:37
I don't know what those things you can
01:39
buy safe which will be putting nothing
01:41
in yep just plenty of storage to know
01:47
that's gonna be useful nothing there's
01:50
more storage in here oh look a
01:55
reflection wow that's the red version of
02:00
me and that's basically my gambling
02:03
losses for the
02:05
I'm checking know if I'm not actually I
02:16
won't be using that
02:17
I never iron anything it's exciting
02:21
isn't it now honestly no joke bro
02:23
they're so bad my nerves are there's a
02:25
mirror there
02:26
these lights are off right and I
02:29
literally I thought that was a door I
02:31
went over to it and saw myself I jumped
02:34
out of my skin
02:35
my nerves are anyway let's have
02:40
a little pan round in the room very
02:41
spacious the last time I was in
02:43
Amsterdam I had a very small room and it
02:46
felt like a prison cell and honestly
02:48
with a hangover those not what you want
02:56
beautiful cups they expressly what we
03:01
got for Complementary so every little
03:04
loop complimentary so I love how the guy
03:07
at the desk said I've upgraded you to a
03:09
king-sized bed instead of two twins yet
03:12
this looks like two twins to me so I
03:15
think that was a little bit oh oh dear
03:19
who didn't pick that up it goes oh we
03:25
got then just yeah the usual stuff
03:26
really what is that hmm English tea
03:36

03:49
never actually use one of them beautiful
03:51
kettle look at that that was amazing
03:56
silver so it's clean
03:59
I always worry about Clarkson's
04:02
comedy sketch when he says he always
04:03
pisses in the kettle before he goes oh
04:05
it's a joke
04:06

is like black brown to a more creamy
08:26
white we would chair here so you could
08:31

08:40
four lights on the ceiling and we've got
08:46

the lights off because these these like
10:47
old mirrors right it's not like mirrors

when you go into the bathroom before we
11:11
got turn the lights on
11:17

a mirror there dude lovely looks yellow
12:08
on the camera but it's actually a white
12:09
light there's a hairdryer yeah it's cool
12:14
I guess you have to switch on by turning
12:20
this to you what does that do no idea
12:29
what that does and I hope you switch
12:30
from that ah there we go
12:41

15:35
be I mean I suspect is but in their
15:39
defense it might not be so little strong
15:44
flash on it and something I'm looking
15:54
forward to late a nice shower this is
15:59
what I want when I move out like nice or
16:01
like a wet room not like just a shower
16:03
but like a whole room look you know like
16:05
a wet room I'll ask me so nice I've
16:08
never actually use a shower that comes
16:10

16:12
soap dish cool temperature yeah that
16:18
seems bill polished nice thing very good
16:22
well anyway that was there I've done
16:25
this sort of review in a style of me
16:27
talking that really quietly towels or
16:30
their on a table as well it's the little
16:37
things in life it's just just nice
16:38
together flat and be in a different
16:40
environment know and I'm gonna be sleep
16:41
and I know that sounds really sad and I
16:43
know people probably travel all over the
16:45
place but I don't get out much but I'll
16:48
believe you me guys I'm gonna be
16:50
traveling soon I'm gonna be traveling
16:53
because give it cool as soon as I move
16:57
up for my flat I'm gonna go no actually
17:05
it probably looks better like that now
17:07
can now it's a sculpture
17:10
I'm gonna sign off I'm perhaps ooh
17:12
pissing about yeah I'm gonna go
17:15
traveling what I'm gonna go traveling
17:18
once I move out and see some more sights
17:22
somebody been to Spain Amsterdam and
17:24
Germany so I need to see the rest of the
17:27
world but yeah I'd give this room
17:34
considering what I've sinned throughout
17:37
my visits to hotels I would give this
17:41
room hmm a 7 to 7.5 I'd say probably
17:55
seven to 7.5 and I'd give a premiere in
18:00
like a free two for just because of the
18:10
cleanliness of a Premier Inn and so
18:13
obviously there isn't like there isn't
18:14
like little touches like this and
18:15
there's just it's just just like little
18:17
touches you know it's sir but I'm sure
18:19
some of the more expensive rooms in this
18:21
hotel the friends and the posts Polsky
18:25
absolutely amazing oh and the reason why
18:27
this gets a seven actually probably a
18:29
seven one or seven point five this
18:31
particular room not much of a view
18:35
really obvious you have to pee I mean
18:38
they're like I said this Suites in this
18:39
place for fifteen hundred's I mean you
18:40
know you know I'm gonna get out for the
18:42
price I pay you know I'm gonna chill out
18:45
now I have my bankroll the casino and
18:49
other things I'm on a bit of a budget
18:52
I've only got a thousand euros on me and
18:54
that's gotta last I've already given the
18:56
taxi driver 80 it came to 60 I gave him
18:59
a tip I'm just I have to give people
19:02
tips he's a nice guy you know and he's
19:04
the people that work hard you know in
19:07
front on a living and
19:11
you know I've obviously got lucky to
19:16
have an income by not doing a
19:19
traditional nine-to-five which I'm
19:20
grateful for so people that do that and
19:24
in Iceland they providing a service
19:27
massive respect so it's always tip when
19:30
I can anyway so that's the review or
19:33
almost twenty minutes of one of the
19:37
budget rooms in the Grand Nepal ski
19:45
yep the grand press I can never
19:49
pronounce the thing the Grand
19:51
Hotel krasnopolskiy at the start of
20:02
August 2019 this is going to be a
20:09
separate video because I'm not gonna use
20:11
a 20 minute video at the start of a
20:12
casino session so you watched
20:15
all this then well thank you for
20:17
watching and out
20:30
I should remember that more often when
20:33
I'm playing and I'm in profit yeah
20:45
okay plot twist I didn't think I'd be
20:47
adding anything more to this video but
20:50
apparently this is going to be a second
20:52
room review so try to get in my other
20:57
room last night
20:59
keycard kept going red went to the
21:03
reception desk and apparently there's
21:05
been a leak I will show you the picture
21:07
now so this is the room I initially paid
21:11
for that other one that you just saw was
21:13
an upgrade a free upgrade so this is the
21:18
basic room and I mean I'm only here for
21:22
one one nope I'm a bit good because it's
21:23
just not the same so I'm gonna do a
21:25
really quick pan around to show you the
21:27
little differences so that other one was
21:29
not braided one as you can see there the
21:33
mirrors of God is literally just a
21:35
mirror now standing freely I think my
21:39
nose nailed is nailed to the wall but
21:41
yeah but those lovely mirrors have gone
21:43
I like the aesthetics of them the desk
21:47
even the desk is different doesn't have
21:49
that that of a texture on it but bonus
21:54
this works there we go so the other one
21:58
was broken is it just a touch a touch
22:03
yeah okay see look at that
22:07
so that's the bonus or whatever
22:10
differences are in this room so the
22:13
tally is now they're not there the bed
22:18
is now here not here one thing I will
22:23
say the view is better in this room you
22:27
can call that view I mean it's a lot
22:31
better than the other one
22:32
so here that's something there's a
22:35
passageway down there and there was a
22:37
cat there earlier but a black one
22:39
lucky cat I'm not doing the casino again
22:42
tonight so yeah don't know what's
22:47
changed there but yeah the bathroom just
22:50
it's just not the same it's not the same
22:52
obviously all the storage now this is
22:54
your storage before there was a lot more
22:59
and it had like red polished bits at the
23:03
bottom now you don't have any of that
23:05
it's like a come down this you know
23:07
I had a rough night it isn't and
23:10
they change your room love it minibar
23:14
still this well the mini but even the
23:16
minibar is different I mean I don't know
23:17
they just mix and match in the rooms but
23:19
I've noticed you know the other one had
23:20
a nice blue-hued and it when you open it
23:24
this just doesn't it's just yeah we got
23:28
you an expresso we'll get
23:32
ready for the bar from them it's just
23:34
not the same once again if you remember
23:35
there's all mirrors down here all
23:38
mirrors separate toilet and shower now
23:44
what do we go all in one toilet shower
23:52
without the one on top which comes down
23:57
like rain so you've just got this now
24:01
but like I said this is the one I paid
24:03
for initially they don't they don't a
24:05
free upgrade the hair dry it's not on
24:07
the wall anymore you know you just go
24:09
you've got you just a mirror there one
24:12
mirror the sink
24:14
goodbye his or her sink residue of soap
24:19
and toothpaste I've been using this room
24:21
yeah it's just it's just not the same as
24:24
the other one but I just bought show you
24:26
this is the cheapest room the other one
24:29
was a slight upgrade I don't know the
24:31
price difference but because of the leak
24:35
they've had to put me down to basic I
24:38
felt like VIP now I just feel like
24:46
you know but it's for the money it's
24:49
still it's it's nice it's just not as
24:51
nice as the other than that I really
24:53
like that have a room I think it's just
24:54
the bathroom and that shower and the
24:56
mirrors I really like the mirrors which
24:59
is now gone and just yeah it's just the
25:01
overall out it's just different and it's
25:03
just more claustrophobic and well I'm
25:06
not gonna complain you know so I hold
25:07
out that's the end so yeah
25:09
to room reviews and one bonus food this
25:14
is the ultimate basic cheap as you can
25:16
get the other one I showed you at the
25:18
start that was a free upgrade and
25:20
obviously you'd usually have to pay a
25:21
bit more for that but as you saw in the
25:25
picture it developed a leak so this was
25:29
a five minute review of this room thanks
25:32
for watching
25:33
pat the krasnopolskiy are a very good
25:37
service very clean place nice vibe - I
25:40
like it so I'd recommend staying here
25:42
again that's in your budget so yeah
25:46
thanks for watching and over I guess
26:05
no more mirrors tell me what really
26:08
already luck them but just there's no
26:09
touch
26:10

hang out and after a special event at
01:23
Disneyland wrapped up at 1:00 in the

01:32
we're making our way into the adventure
01:34
Tower and I think you guys are gonna
01:36
like what you see the room we're about
01:39
to visit is unlike anything I've ever
01:41
seen before I know a lot about
01:44
Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel but
01:46
I never even knew these rooms existed
01:50

dining room the chandelier I mean have
02:42
you ever seen anything like this in a
02:47
Disney hotel this is everything I ever
02:49
dreamed a Disney hotel could be and I'm
02:52
sure that a few people were aware that
02:55
this exists but for the most part to
02:57
most people this is a gigantic very well
03:01
kept secret look at the size of this
03:03
place
03:04
that big sweeper in the grand California
03:06
not too long ago was definitely bigger
03:08
but this is so impressive
03:12
I don't even know what to say I'm just
03:15
trying to wrap my mind around this room
03:19
I was up here earlier just for a little
03:21
bit with my friend but now that I'm
03:22
really looking around this blows my mind
03:26
there is a lot going on in here I don't
03:29
even know where to start what the heck
03:33
was that
03:35
did you guys hear that this is one of
03:44
the surprising parts of having such a
03:46
tiny fiancee they can fit anywhere my
03:50
lady
03:51
look size of this place have you ever
03:54
seen anything like this before in your
03:56
whole life did you even know this was
03:58
here have you ever heard of the themed
04:00
rooms at the Disneyland Hotel this is
04:03
crazy okay
04:05
we got to start at the beginning let's
04:06
go back to the front door look at this
04:08
this is the door that we came in the Big
04:11
Thunder suite door look at this crazy
04:14
entry room room what in the world is
04:18
this switch danger if you don't turn
04:21
knob minors only well
04:24
I'm over 18 but I still think I'm
04:26
allowed to do this what the heck do you
04:33
hear that oh my gosh it makes noises
04:38
let's check that again the sound of what
04:48
I think it was the sound I'm pretty sure
05:09
that's amazing
05:12
Thunder sweet indeed what's this old
05:15
phone all about this calls the White
05:17
House when you pick up the phone
05:39
Old West people start talking can you
06:06
hear that oh we've got a landline to the
06:11
Old West ok moving on in a little deeper
06:14
look at that window onto old Big Thunder
06:19
Mountain mrs. so cool there's so much
06:21
detail here I love this lamp right here
06:24
let's go
06:26
even the lamps are themed okay and now
06:29
back into that massive dining room look
06:32
for charge of this table I especially
06:35
love this old wagon wheel chandelier
06:38
this is totally the kind of thing that
06:40
the Cowboys hang from in the movies
06:42
although I'm pretty sure it would not be
06:44
a good idea for us to hang on that
06:46
chandelier tonight maybe you you could
06:49
probably do it without breaking it
06:50
definitely definitely not me and gee
06:53
whiz dad it's quite the table I love
06:57
everything about this just look at the
06:59
side table it's all rustic Old West
07:03
looking and above an epic painting a Big
07:07
Thunder Mountain look at that there's
07:09
the loading area there rainbow ridge I
07:11
wonder if this is early concept artwork
07:14
because it's a little different than the
07:16
actual Big Thunder Mountain but you
07:18
still know exactly what you're looking
07:20
at this is amazing it's amazing you
07:23
Julie hook size of this room and there's
07:27
a whole little kitchen area okay oh my
07:30
gosh look at this down under the
07:32
cabinets is a little fridge what is in
07:36
their beverages bartender I'll have a
07:39
coke
07:39
they don't have Pepsi products oh my
07:41
gosh that is gonna be so good I'm very
07:44
very thirsty something about this place
07:46
just makes me watch them whiskey the
07:50
size of this ice bucket or is this a
07:53
spittoon either way look at this weird
07:56
see I know it's kind of hard to tell but
07:59
it's at a really strange angle look at
08:03
this if I turn the water on it all just
08:05
runs downhill into the drain and what
08:08
the heck is the upper part of the sink
08:10
for that does not make sense I guess
08:13
this is where you put all those dishes
08:15
that you want to stay dirty no no Ali
08:17
keep that one dirty and drive right over
08:20
there that's that's the way look at
08:22
these lamps here they're all old-timey
08:25
Old West lamps
08:27
I never noticed this guy you're right
08:30
there's a freaking guy hiding in that
08:33
painting okay that that actually got a
08:35
little a little weird I think that's
08:37
about it for the dining room now the
08:40
living room look at this dividing wall
08:42
here with that rock work that is so
08:44
freakin awesome and there's a strange
08:47
wooden canoe like bowl full of I don't
08:52
know what this is these dragon eggs too
08:57
bad there's no fire we could put them
08:59
into oh wait we cannot enter this
09:02
awesome living room without talking
09:05
about the fireplace I mean feast your
09:09
eyes on that now I am 100% sure that
09:13
that is not a real fire some kind of
09:16
screen combined with prop burning wood
09:21
in there you know some Disney magic
09:23
going on in this fireplace when you go
09:25
and take a seat over here on the couch
09:27
from this distance that definitely looks
09:30
very very real and by the way what a
09:35
couch that has got to be real leather
09:39
look at that that's wrong right there
09:42
that's incredible and look there's even
09:45
a couple of chairs nice straight back
09:49
wooden chair for people that have really
09:52
good posture or someone you want to make
09:55
uncomfortable and then this fine leather
09:58
and cloth mixture chair or the man who
10:03
enjoys a nice pipe
10:05
yeah Ali fetch me my bubble pipe okay
10:11
this is weird too this room is in
10:29
credible you've got to like this you
10:31
love rustic things and wood it's almost
10:34
like a cabin in here which is Ali's
10:36
favorite I love all this Big Thunder
10:38
artwork on the walls even a large piece
10:41
of Big Thunder artwork right above the
10:44
fireplace wait wait a minute that's
10:47
weird
10:48
where's the remote I have a sinking
10:51
suspicion of this painting isn't what it
10:55
seems what it's a hidden TV that's
11:04
amazing but we're not here to watch TV
11:07
so we're gonna have to close that bad
11:09
boy okay that is awesome
11:13
I want that in our house someday that is
11:17
so cool you could just put the TV away
11:19
out of sight out of my
11:22
there's a James Bond in TV in here
11:25
actually kind of makes sense because
11:27
there were no TVs in the Old West and
11:29
the Old West paintings were your
11:37
reruns all right now let's look to the
11:41
sides here there are two different
11:44
cabinets on either side on the side over
11:49
here just much gold we've got is so
12:03
awesome a statue called Gold Fever - oh
12:09
no I'm sorry
12:10
Gold Fever for the first three weren't
12:12
any good but this one's a beauty and
12:15
this ginormous plunger thingy the boom
12:19
the thing the bone thing what do you
12:20
call that detonator detonator here's a
12:24
detonator in here oh I've got to push
12:27
that oh man are locked glass that's okay
12:31
there's a whole other cabinet over here
12:32
which is also locked but it's full of
12:34
all kinds of other miny stuff legs look
12:37
at that pic down there a couple of
12:39
railroad nails some homemade something
12:42
or other and then a picture award pappi
12:47
that's kind of like a milk jug some
12:49
ceramics for a carrying some fortune
12:51
then what do we got up here a couple of
12:53
animals and some weird sugar syrup
12:58
contains sugar syrup that's the kind of
13:00
container I would more expect to see
13:02
triple X's on the label I don't know
13:05
that is a trip oK we've seen the epic
13:09
living room now let's go check out the
13:12
bedroom first we gotta go back through
13:14
the dining room
13:15
to the master bedroom oh this is gonna
13:19
be sweet
13:20
no pun intended
13:28
it's rustic its Old West looking as a
13:33
matter of fact these pillow kind of look
13:35
like the type of luggage you'd put up on
13:37
an old stagecoach do they're very fine
13:40
looking leather chair up bench of some
13:43
kind in case you need to tie your shoe
13:44
or something another old-timey lantern
13:47
couple a lamp shape just like old whip
13:50
which are located in very close
13:51
proximity to this bed and look at this
13:54
lamp over here it's a lamp made out of
13:58
an old canteen that that right there
14:03
that's a nice test Oh what we here looks
14:07
like another television set very handy
14:10
the kids can watch the Disney Channel
14:12
and you could be watching HBO yeah it's
14:14
pretty awesome but the best feature in
14:17
here is definitely that God got you in
14:20
bed I mean look signs of it
14:23
you know what alley it's you me and a
14:26
giant bed you know what we have to do
14:39
well I think we messed up the bed oh it
14:43
was so soft I wasn't expecting it to be
14:46
so soft love that it's definitely
14:49
king-size bed and I know because that
14:53
well the Royal fall of course view out
14:57
of all these windows there's a little
14:59
condensation on them right now cuz it's
15:02
a little cold outside still you can get
15:05
a pretty good idea of how awesome the
15:07
view is more on that later
15:09
where's the bathroom oh here it is I
15:13
found it by from this door oh my gosh
15:20
look at that back this is the old
15:24
tiniest old western es bathtub I've ever
15:29
seen in my life it's a freakin copper
15:33
bathtub look at the size of that pile of
15:36
towels over there this is amazing
15:39
there's also some pretty neat sinks over
15:41
here sort of Copper Bowl ish looking
15:44
with weird strange spouts and whatnot
15:47
very own remote control for what I'm
15:49
assuming is a TV inside the mirror there
15:53
it is
15:53
TV and your bathroom mirror whoa there's
15:57
one heck of an epic shower over here is
16:01
that look at this
16:02
what are your stone tiles even weirder
16:06
crazier steampunk looking pipes look at
16:11
that shower head up there okay this is
16:14
kind of
16:16
I've never seen anything like this
16:18
before
16:18
Captain Nemo dive not what else is going
16:23
on over here oh oh look at the ROI bro
16:28
okay
16:29
this is an unusual potty room if I do
16:32
say so myself at some strange wooden
16:35
cabinets up here that are firmly locked
16:37
and then there's this very strange
16:40
toilet here with a very weird flush
16:44
irmak doodle okay I like the artwork in
16:54
here that's pretty nice something to
16:55
look at while you're sitting on that
16:58
thing pretty weird toilet room I still
17:00
can't get over that bathtub that is just
17:04
awesome looking look at this big it the
17:08
spout over here that is oh where did you
17:11
see that back it's amazing look at that
17:14
thing it's bigger than you are you could
17:18
drown in a bathtub like that that is one
17:21
crazy hotel room just this room just the
17:24
master bedroom in here and that bathroom
17:26
would make a pretty crazy hotel stay
17:30
that's for sure that isn't the only
17:32
bedroom and the Big Thunder sweet after
17:37
all a suite of rooms you join means more
17:40
than one let's check out door number two
17:45
look at this a whole separate bedroom in
17:51
here see my buddy comes with a large
17:53
group so he hangs out in there and then
17:56
all this other friends hang out in here
17:58
really nice place they hang out I've got
18:01
to admit this is a much more standard
18:03
much more average hotel room in here not
18:06
the armoire with the TV in there got
18:09
your bed you got your nightstands a
18:12
little desk over here of course there
18:14
are some Big Thunder touches like the
18:16
old Big Thunder poster on the wall the
18:20
Big Thunder bedspread complete with
18:22
rodeo pillows and let's not forget the
18:25
lamp made out of an old cowboy boot and
18:29
what's really cool about this room is
18:31
that it's in the corner so when you turn
18:33
out the light you reveal an epic
18:36
multi-directional view how's that
18:39
looking to you Ally
18:41
that is awesome look you can see out to
18:45
the south there the parking lot behind
18:47
the hotel not as good as looking down at
18:50
that pool over there and of course the
18:53
neighborhood I used to live in right
18:55
behind the hotel buildings this this is
18:59
amazing that's crazy I started my life
19:02
down in that little not so nice
19:04
neighborhood over there looking up with
19:07
these towers and always thinking one day
19:09
one day
19:11
I'll be up there looking down the other
19:13
way
19:14
tonight it's come true this this is
19:18
pretty crazy grandma this is my hotel
19:19
room but this is still a dream come true
19:24
that is spectacular oh my goodness of
19:30
course this room also has a bathroom
19:32
which is a pretty standard look a nice
19:35
little sink area there of course there's
19:37
a nice mirror everything is still pretty
19:39
rustic looking got the wooden door
19:42
closets with your fine Old West robes
19:46
inside no less every room comes equipped
19:48
with an ironing board and iron some
19:51
extra linens and of course room safe I
19:55
never have anything valuable enough to
19:56
put away in a room safe so I never use
19:58
them I like knowing their thing whoa
20:00
then look at this some concept artwork
20:02
for Big Thunder in here with the John
20:04
putting stuff to look at while you're
20:06
doing number two in this hotel fund then
20:09
a pretty standard bathtub with a very
20:12
normal showerhead no I do really like
20:15
all this stuff is nice all in all a
20:18
pretty classy place to put your
20:19
Grandpa's Rumpy and cleaning off your
20:24
shoulders room like this really feels a
20:27
lot more like an apartment and a much
20:30
much nicer apartment than I live in
20:32
that's for sure because you got this
20:34
whole area in here I can imagine if this
20:36
was your bedroom you know the kid's room
20:39
over here on the side and you've got
20:41
this gigantic living room in here which
20:44
is much much bigger than my living room
20:46
at home that's for sure plus the whole
20:48
master bedroom over there which is
20:50
almost as big as my living room and
20:53
kitchen and dining room all combined
20:55
where I live you've got a recipe for
20:57
insanity now the price of the Big
21:00
Thunder suite is definitely well into
21:03
the four digit region this is not
21:06
something that normal people like you
21:08
and I could just afford to do on a whim
21:10
we're kind of getting a little peek into
21:13
the lifestyles of the rich and
21:15
famous it just occurred to me that
21:17
there's a strong possibility that
21:19
someone likes a Paul McCartney has
21:22
stayed in this room before I mean I
21:25
don't know how much Paul McCartney is a
21:27
huge Disneyland fan but people like John
21:30
Stamos definitely are imagine all the
21:32
kings and queens and famous people who
21:35
slept in this bed I mean this is one
21:38
impressive space and I had no idea until
21:42
about last year sometime these signature
21:45
suites even existed here that's awesome
21:49
wait a minute
21:49
we missed a room there's an extra room
21:52
over here oh there's another bathroom
21:54
this one's not connected to a bedroom
21:57
this is just sort of the bathroom for
21:59
the living room little guest bathroom
22:01
over here oh I like that seems to me
22:04
you're gonna wait a minute wait just a
22:07
cotton-pickin minute what the heck is
22:10
this it's the toilet from the Godfather
22:13
Oh whole chain toilet you pull on this
22:18
lever here to flush this bad boy oh my
22:25
goodness you've got the Godfather's
22:28
toilet Michael use my toilet I know
22:32
there's nothing up here but I keep
22:35
finding myself checking for weapons
22:44
yeah
22:51
well I guess that about sums it up
22:55
the epic quote unquote secret Big
22:59
Thunder suite at the Disneyland Hotel I
23:03
never knew there was anything like this
23:05
here this is up and the views aren't bad
23:10
either I very much want to thank my
23:13
friends who led us into their epic suite
23:16
once again so that all of you guys could
23:19
take a look at it with me this is just
23:21
utterly utterly mind-blowing I believe
23:26
that I'm in here but since we didn't
23:28
bring any shampoo or pajamas and since
23:31
room service is already super done and
23:34
there's not enough fruit here to sustain
23:37
us for the whole night I think we've
23:39
done our duty maybe we can go home and
23:42
sleep well man crazy thing is is this
23:45
really just feels like somebody's house
23:48
the whole time we're in here I'm like
23:49
gosh it feels like someone lives in here
23:52
you know oh stop weird weird feeling I
23:55
know but look at just seems like it
23:57
apart all right guys I I guess that's
23:59
all in here one more turn of the knob
24:02

24:13

this exists but for the most part to
02:57
most people this is a gigantic very well
03:01
kept secret look at the size of this
03:03
place

06:40
the Cowboys hang from in the movies
06:42
although I'm pretty sure it would not be
06:44
a good idea for us to hang on that
06:46
chandelier tonight maybe you you could
06:49
probably do it without breaking it
06:50
definitely definitely not me and gee
06:53
whiz dad it's quite the table I love
06:57
everything about this just look at the
06:59
side table it's all rustic Old West
07:03
looking and above an epic painting a Big
07:07
Thunder Mountain look at that there's
07:09
the loading area there rainbow ridge I
07:11
wonder if this is early concept artwork
07:14
because it's a little different than the
07:16
actual Big Thunder Mountain but you
07:18
still know exactly what you're looking
07:20
at this is amazing it's amazing you
07:23
Julie hook size of this room and there's
07:27
a whole little kitchen area okay oh my
07:30
gosh look at this down under the
07:32
cabinets is a little fridge what is in
07:36
their beverages bartender I'll have a
07:39
coke
07:39
they don't have Pepsi products oh my
07:41
gosh that is gonna be so good I'm very
07:44
very thirsty something about this place
07:46
just makes me watch them whiskey the
07:50
size of this ice bucket or is this a
07:53
spittoon either way look at this weird
07:56
see I know it's kind of hard to tell but
07:59
it's at a really strange angle look at
08:03
this if I turn the water on it all just
08:05
runs downhill into the drain and what
08:08
the heck is the upper part of the sink
08:10
for that does not make sense I guess
08:13
this is where you put all those dishes
08:15
that you want to stay dirty no no Ali
08:17
keep that one dirty and drive right over
08:20
there that's that's the way look at
08:22
these lamps here they're all old-timey
08:25
Old West lamps
08:27
I never noticed this guy you're right
08:30
there's a freaking guy hiding in that
08:33
painting okay that that actually got a
08:35
little a little weird I think that's
08:37
about it for the dining room now the
08:40
living room look at this dividing wall
08:42
here with that rock work that is so
08:44
freakin awesome and there's a strange
08:47
wooden canoe like bowl full of I don't
08:52
know what this is these dragon eggs too
08:57
bad there's no fire we could put them
08:59
into oh wait we cannot enter this
09:02
awesome living room without talking
09:05
about the fireplace I mean feast your
09:09
eyes on that now I am 100% sure that
09:13
that is not a real fire some kind of
09:16
screen combined with prop burning wood
09:21
in there you know some Disney magic
09:23
going on in this fireplace when you go
09:25
and take a seat over here on the couch
09:27
from this distance that definitely looks
09:30
very very real and by the way what a
09:35
couch that has got to be real leather
09:39
look at that that's wrong right there
09:42
that's incredible and look there's even
09:45
a couple of chairs nice straight back
09:49
wooden chair for people that have really
09:52
good posture or someone you want to make
09:55
uncomfortable and then this fine leather
09:58
and cloth mixture chair or the man who
10:03
enjoys a nice pipe
10:05
yeah Ali fetch me my bubble pipe okay
10:11
this is weird too this room is in
10:29
credible you've got to like this you
10:31
love rustic things and wood it's almost
10:34
like a cabin in here which is Ali's
10:36
favorite I love all this Big Thunder
10:38
artwork on the walls even a large piece
10:41
of Big Thunder artwork right above the
10:44
fireplace wait wait a minute that's
10:47
weird
10:48
where's the remote I have a sinking
10:51
suspicion of this painting isn't what it
10:55
seems what it's a hidden TV that's
11:04
amazing but we're not here to watch TV
11:07
so we're gonna have to close that bad
11:09
boy okay that is awesome
11:13
I want that in our house someday that is
11:17
so cool you could just put the TV away
11:19
out of sight out of my
11:22
there's a James Bond in TV in here
11:25
actually kind of makes sense because
11:27
there were no TVs in the Old West and
11:29
the Old West paintings were your
11:37
reruns all right now let's look to the
11:41
sides here there are two different
11:44
cabinets on either side on the side over
11:49
here just much gold we've got is so
12:03
awesome a statue called Gold Fever - oh
12:09
no I'm sorry
12:10
Gold Fever for the first three weren't
12:12
any good but this one's a beauty and
12:15
this ginormous plunger thingy the boom
12:19
the thing the bone thing what do you
12:20
call that detonator detonator here's a
12:24
detonator in here oh I've got to push
12:27
that oh man are locked glass that's okay
12:31
there's a whole other cabinet over here
12:32
which is also locked but it's full of
12:34
all kinds of other miny stuff legs look
12:37
at that pic down there a couple of
12:39
railroad nails some homemade something
12:42
or other and then a picture award pappi
12:47
that's kind of like a milk jug some
12:49
ceramics for a carrying some fortune
12:51
then what do we got up here a couple of
12:53
animals and some weird sugar syrup
12:58
contains sugar syrup that's the kind of
13:00
container I would more expect to see
13:02
triple X's on the label I don't know
13:05
that is a trip oK we've seen the epic
13:09
living room now let's go check out the
13:12
bedroom first we gotta go back through
13:14
the dining room
13:15
to the master bedroom oh this is gonna
13:19
be sweet
13:20
no pun intended
13:28
it's rustic its Old West looking as a
13:33
matter of fact these pillow kind of look
13:35
like the type of luggage you'd put up on
13:37
an old stagecoach do they're very fine
13:40
looking leather chair up bench of some
13:43
kind in case you need to tie your shoe
13:44
or something another old-timey lantern
13:47
couple a lamp shape just like old whip
13:50
which are located in very close
13:51
proximity to this bed and look at this
13:54
lamp over here it's a lamp made out of
13:58
an old canteen that that right there
14:03
that's a nice test Oh what we here looks
14:07
like another television set very handy
14:10
the kids can watch the Disney Channel
14:12
and you could be watching HBO yeah it's
14:14
pretty awesome but the best feature in
14:17
here is definitely that God got you in
14:20
bed I mean look signs of it
14:23
you know what alley it's you me and a
14:26
giant bed you know what we have to do
14:39
well I think we messed up the bed oh it
14:43
was so soft I wasn't expecting it to be
14:46
so soft love that it's definitely
14:49
king-size bed and I know because that
14:53
well the Royal fall of course view out
14:57
of all these windows there's a little
14:59
condensation on them right now cuz it's
15:02
a little cold outside still you can get
15:05
a pretty good idea of how awesome the
15:07
view is more on that later
15:09
where's the bathroom oh here it is I
15:13
found it by from this door oh my gosh
15:20
look at that back this is the old
15:24
tiniest old western es bathtub I've ever
15:29
seen in my life it's a freakin copper
15:33
bathtub look at the size of that pile of
15:36
towels over there this is amazing
15:39
there's also some pretty neat sinks over
15:41
here sort of Copper Bowl ish looking
15:44
with weird strange spouts and whatnot
15:47
very own remote control for what I'm
15:49
assuming is a TV inside the mirror there
15:53
it is
15:53
TV and your bathroom mirror whoa there's
15:57
one heck of an epic shower over here is
16:01
that look at this
16:02
what are your stone tiles even weirder
16:06
crazier steampunk looking pipes look at
16:11
that shower head up there okay this is
16:14
kind of
16:16
I've never seen anything like this
16:18
before
16:18
Captain Nemo dive not what else is going
16:23
on over here oh oh look at the ROI bro
16:28
okay
16:29
this is an unusual potty room if I do
16:32
say so myself at some strange wooden
16:35
cabinets up here that are firmly locked
16:37
and then there's this very strange
16:40
toilet here with a very weird flush
16:44
irmak doodle okay I like the artwork in
16:54
here that's pretty nice something to
16:55
look at while you're sitting on that
16:58
thing pretty weird toilet room I still
17:00
can't get over that bathtub that is just
17:04
awesome looking look at this big it the
17:08
spout over here that is oh where did you
17:11
see that back it's amazing look at that
17:14
thing it's bigger than you are you could
17:18
drown in a bathtub like that that is one
17:21
crazy hotel room just this room just the
17:24
master bedroom in here and that bathroom
17:26
would make a pretty crazy hotel stay
17:30
that's for sure that isn't the only
17:32
bedroom and the Big Thunder sweet after
17:37
all a suite of rooms you join means more
17:40
than one let's check out door number two
17:45
look at this a whole separate bedroom in
17:51
here see my buddy comes with a large
17:53
group so he hangs out in there and then
17:56
all this other friends hang out in here
17:58
really nice place they hang out I've got
18:01
to admit this is a much more standard
18:03
much more average hotel room in here not
18:06
the armoire with the TV in there got
18:09
your bed you got your nightstands a
18:12
little desk over here of course there
18:14
are some Big Thunder touches like the
18:16
old Big Thunder poster on the wall the
18:20
Big Thunder bedspread complete with
18:22
rodeo pillows and let's not forget the
18:25
lamp made out of an old cowboy boot and
18:29
what's really cool about this room is
18:31
that it's in the corner so when you turn
18:33
out the light you reveal an epic
18:36
multi-directional view how's that
18:39
looking to you Ally
18:41
that is awesome look you can see out to
18:45
the south there the parking lot behind
18:47
the hotel not as good as looking down at
18:50
that pool over there and of course the
18:53
neighborhood I used to live in right
18:55
behind the hotel buildings this this is
18:59
amazing that's crazy I started my life
19:02
down in that little not so nice
19:04
neighborhood over there looking up with
19:07
these towers and always thinking one day
19:09
one day
19:11
I'll be up there looking down the other
19:13
way
19:14
tonight it's come true this this is
19:18
pretty crazy grandma this is my hotel
19:19
room but this is still a dream come true
19:24
that is spectacular oh my goodness of
19:30
course this room also has a bathroom
19:32
which is a pretty standard look a nice
19:35
little sink area there of course there's
19:37
a nice mirror everything is still pretty
19:39
rustic looking got the wooden door
19:42
closets with your fine Old West robes
19:46
inside no less every room comes equipped
19:48
with an ironing board and iron some
19:51
extra linens and of course room safe I
19:55
never have anything valuable enough to
19:56
put away in a room safe so I never use
19:58
them I like knowing their thing whoa
20:00
then look at this some concept artwork
20:02
for Big Thunder in here with the John
20:04
putting stuff to look at while you're
20:06
doing number two in this hotel fund then
20:09
a pretty standard bathtub with a very
20:12
normal showerhead no I do really like
20:15
all this stuff is nice all in all a
20:18
pretty classy place to put your
20:19
Grandpa's Rumpy and cleaning off your
20:24
shoulders room like this really feels a
20:27
lot more like an apartment and a much
20:30
much nicer apartment than I live in
20:32
that's for sure because you got this
20:34
whole area in here I can imagine if this
20:36
was your bedroom you know the kid's room
20:39
over here on the side and you've got
20:41
this gigantic living room in here which
20:44
is much much bigger than my living room
20:46
at home that's for sure plus the whole
20:48
master bedroom over there which is
20:50
almost as big as my living room and
20:53
kitchen and dining room all combined
20:55
where I live you've got a recipe for
20:57
insanity now the price of the Big
21:00
Thunder suite is definitely well into
21:03
the four digit region this is not
21:06
something that normal people like you
21:08
and I could just afford to do on a whim
21:10
we're kind of getting a little peek into
21:13
the lifestyles of the rich and
21:15
famous it just occurred to me that
21:17
there's a strong possibility that
21:19
someone likes a Paul McCartney has
21:22
stayed in this room before I mean I
21:25
don't know how much Paul McCartney is a
21:27
huge Disneyland fan but people like John
21:30
Stamos definitely are imagine all the
21:32
kings and queens and famous people who
21:35
slept in this bed I mean this is one
21:38
impressive space and I had no idea until
21:42
about last year sometime these signature
21:45
suites even existed here that's awesome
21:49
wait a minute
21:49
we missed a room there's an extra room
21:52
over here oh there's another bathroom
21:54
this one's not connected to a bedroom
21:57
this is just sort of the bathroom for
21:59
the living room little guest bathroom
22:01
over here oh I like that seems to me
22:04
you're gonna wait a minute wait just a
22:07
cotton-pickin minute what the heck is
22:10
this it's the toilet from the Godfather
22:13
Oh whole chain toilet you pull on this
22:18
lever here to flush this bad boy oh my
22:25
goodness you've got the Godfather's
22:28
toilet Michael use my toilet I know
22:32
there's nothing up here but I keep
22:35
finding myself checking for weapons
22:44
yeah
22:51
well I guess that about sums it up
22:55
the epic quote unquote secret Big
22:59
Thunder suite at the Disneyland Hotel I
23:03
never knew there was anything like this
23:05
here this is up and the views aren't bad
23:10
either I very much want to thank my
23:13
friends who led us into their epic suite
23:16
once again so that all of you guys could
23:19
take a look at it with me this is just
23:21
utterly utterly mind-blowing I believe
23:26
that I'm in here but since we didn't
23:28
bring any shampoo or pajamas and since
23:31
room service is already super done and
23:34
there's not enough fruit here to sustain
23:37
us for the whole night I think we've
23:39
done our duty maybe we can go home and
23:42
sleep well man crazy thing is is this
23:45
really just feels like somebody's house
23:48
the whole time we're in here I'm like
23:49
gosh it feels like someone lives in here
23:52
you know oh stop weird weird feeling I
23:55
know but look at just seems like it
23:57
apart all right guys I I guess that's
23:59
all in here one more turn of the knob
24:02

24:13
[Music]

Kempinski in such a property with such a
04:26
history and trust me the New York Harris
04:29
trust me they want to know about you
04:31
because New York loves to travel but
04:34
Oliver we want to know about you at
04:36
first how do I get you first of all I
04:39
arrived in Berlin and taking over the
04:41
optin competing skee-ball want to have
04:43
years ago so I'm pretty new to town but
04:45
I have worked many many years before in
04:47
Berlin and several different positions
04:48
before maybe two to start with it all my
04:52
my career started back in western
04:54
Germany city close to Hannover I used to
04:57
travel a lot with my father whenever he
04:59
had a business trip he took me RISM I
05:01
was staying in beautiful hotels I was
05:03
waiting for him was my soda at the bar
05:06
in the evening and I found it extremely
05:08
fancy what did you dad do
05:10
my dad was selling furniture oh so you
05:14
travel
05:14
all over Europe and ever had holidays in
05:16
school I was able to come with him we
05:17
both enjoyed it I enjoyed the hotels the
05:19
luxury the pools the bars as I said so I
05:22
saw to tell business extremely fancy so
05:24
when I started my apprenticeship so you
05:26
might know in Germany it's it's a
05:27
professional you start to learn for 3
05:29
years we saw hotels school once a week
05:31
and four days in a in a hotel in every
05:34
position so you work as a cook you work
05:35
in the stewarding department in the
05:37
restaurants you're working rooms
05:38
division so you have a very great
05:40
overview over the business alone really
05:42
every detail as well as you get your
05:45
school diploma and after three years you
05:46
certified Hotel II and what I did after
05:49
my apprenticeship I wanted to go to
05:50
Berlin at that time Westbourne still
05:52
divided city extremely interesting for a
05:55
young gentleman and I started here at
05:57
the reception of the Intercontinental
05:59
Hotel in West Berlin extremely
06:02
interesting time still east-west you had
06:04
to cross a ball or the wall was there so
06:06
I experienced it all first time was
06:08
there a lot of money to be spent it was
06:11
divided and actually for the eastern
06:12
Germans wasn't possible to cross the
06:14
border into West Berlin yeah so West
06:16
Berlin was only reachable by car through
06:18
the customs do the gates or obviously by
06:21
airplane it was an international city
06:24
but like an island maybe that describes
06:26
his best the big island you didn't see
06:28
the wall every minute of your life but
06:30
sure it was a very special situation but
06:33
still a blooming city interesting good
06:35
business and for a young gentleman at
06:37
that time sure the place to be in
06:39
Germany maybe in the heart of Europe
06:49
parties celebrities VIPs shoe everything
06:54
party's not so much I was more
06:55
interested into the culture part yes if
06:57
I remember correctly I'm not so sure
06:59
about that who do the place to be it is
07:03
truly the place to be right here the Sun
07:07
is coming out
07:08
overlooking this amazing historic
07:11
Brandenburg Gate however it's all about
07:14
education a major part of your education
07:17
you've got in the United States
07:19
absolutely right you know so after my my
07:21
diploma here back in Germany and before
07:23
the high school had the opportunity to
07:26
work in Miami for InterContinental
07:27
Hotels moved on to Obama's iris for a
07:30
year and a half then I had the chance
07:32
which we'll never forget because it was
07:34
grace that great time and great
07:35
education I went to Cornell University
07:37
upstate New York I concentrated their
07:40
own sales and marketing mainly so the
07:42
last five and a half years I spent in
07:43
Moscow before Berlin I opened there the
07:46
ritz-carlton Moscow right on the red
07:47
square what an opportunity because you
07:50
know the relationship between Moscow
07:51
Russia and Germany very close only two
07:53
and a half hours flight with a lot of
07:55
Russian business in Berlin as well that
07:58
helped me getting here to Berlin taking
08:00
over the art one and then he said you
08:03
know concentrate on this property which
08:04
has a fabulous history and with new
08:06
management skills with a young team
08:08
selecting the right people in the a
08:10
endowment and we're trying to create
08:12
experiences we're not selling a location
08:14
or product sure that many places in
08:16
Berlin where you can sleep well where
08:18
you can you know have a decent meal and
08:21
they might not have the location but at
08:24
the end of the day it all comes together
08:25
even that location was a bad service
08:27
would not be a nice experience and I
08:29
believe truly in the power of our ladies
08:31
and gentlemen creating an experience for
08:33
every guest which is memorable which is
08:35
exciting which is you're gonna
08:37
communicate about afterwards that has to
08:39
be that Wow and when you create that Wow
08:42
and that every day was every customer I
08:43
think you can really change the world
08:45
you have a wonderful wonderful spa here
08:48
very luxurious very intimate at the same
08:51
time I felt very cozy any time you can
08:55
have a treatment as well and that is
08:58
very important now building this Spa is
09:01
that something what has been
09:03
done recently did it come under your
09:06
umbrella tell us about it it was right
09:08
from the beginning when this hotel was
09:10
reconstructed after unification in
09:12
Berlin and was rebuilt on the original
09:14
spot of the Papillon convinced kilter
09:16
before that is where where the gold was
09:19
acid it was historically to build the
09:21
very best hotel in the world and sure
09:24
enough in a city location even so it's
09:26
mainly a business hotel you want to
09:28
offer a spa which is out of this world
09:30
and with the art on day spa from the
09:32
architecture from the whole atmosphere
09:34
that is it's a spa in the city
09:38
it is truly carrying you away and that
09:41
is what a lot of our customers enjoy you
09:43
have the option it's not a must but you
09:45
have that option and that is really what
09:46
a world class hotel should offer I saw
09:49
downstairs in the lobby there was a big
09:50
sign foreign ministry Allyson
09:53
ministerium I can say that yeah foreign
09:57
ministry means you meet a lot of very
09:59
influential people here sure this is a
10:02
home to be in Berlin the German
10:05
government as well as a lot of
10:06
international governments use the
10:08
article Pinsky as their home of choice
10:10
when they travel to the capital of
10:12
Germany it's our honor having these
10:14
guests here lots of state visit the US
10:16
president stayed at the artwork and
10:18
Pinsky many others you will please
10:20
understand and appreciate also as your
10:22
viewers we cannot really talk about our
10:25
guests but you liked our president very
10:27
much enjoyed and jointly before also in
10:29
Russia so it's it's a great visit it's
10:32
it's an great experience to have a state
10:34
visit like that you also had quite a few
10:37
personalities here what was it like to
10:39
have them here rather demanding I can
10:43
imagine probably difficult people to be
10:45
around I wouldn't call it difficult I
10:47
would call it challenging and that's
10:48
what we like that's our profession too
10:50
to having the most challenging customer
10:52
and guests to satisfy I can proudly say
10:56
that the Artem Kempinski is prepared for
10:58
that as we have so many celebratory so
11:00
many state visits people who really have
11:02
very special requests we're prepared for
11:04
that
11:04
I have a team of eight concierge if you
11:07
need a helicopter in 20 minutes we're
11:08
gonna have a heavy but this is about
11:11
seven stars you received last night you
11:15
a team you and you
11:16
the most distinguished hospitality award
11:19
what was it like tell me you see you see
11:21
it in my eyes I'm sure you don't much
11:23
like what what can be better than to get
11:25
such a prestigious award which is
11:27
recognizing the hard work of our ladies
11:30
and gentlemen every day because all of
11:32
them together create that feeling which
11:34
is then reflecting in an award like that
11:36
so we're very proud very happy we
11:38
celebrated today all together as a team
11:40
because as I said it's it's another
11:43
confirmation that we on the right track
11:45
that we do something maybe a little bit
11:47
better than others that makes me very
11:49
proud to have this hotel with this award
11:51
is a very special feature what I loved
12:03
is of course meeting your artist he
12:06
helped me out with us they literally
12:08
just me I looked up all his art on the
12:11
website and and we want you all to know
12:14
that you were displaying his art here
12:16
all over the hotel though it is a rather
12:20
elegant style it pops up the whole
12:23
dining room and makes it a lot of fun I
12:26
thought we are very proud um I want to
12:28
work with somebody like mr. Chesney he's
12:30
a very famous artist he resides at the
12:33
Cote d'Azur he's a lot of traveling all
12:35
over Europe very well-known great art
12:38
when I saw the art is it is exhibited
12:40
now in our restaurant we suppose all the
12:42
bright colors I thought Spring has
12:44
arrived in Berlin because definitely
12:47
it's its energy its colors really
12:49
something which is adding to our benefit
12:52
of having this location having these
12:54
guests here at the artwork and Pinsky
12:55
which you can also enjoy the art and
12:57
maybe more interesting than a museum
12:59
visit and it was pleasure great pleasure
13:02
for me to see our very own Walter Stipe
13:06

18:20
hosting you thank you history we cannot
18:25
forget to talk about the history of this
18:28
amazing place see our American history
18:31
is merely three hundred years old so we
18:34
are relatively young in comparison to
18:37
you guys here in Germany yep okay Pinsky
18:40
was originally opened on the 23rd of
18:41
October 1907 by a gentleman called
18:44
Lorenz Appling his dream his vision was
18:47
to open the very best product hotel in
18:51
Europe he built for two years spent a
18:53
hundred million gold mark at that time
18:56
that was then already a lot that was
18:58
then already Lonnie but most exciting it
19:00
was a first hotel with electric power it
19:04
was a first hotel was hot and cold
19:05
running water a lot of a lot of guests
19:09
and all over society were excited about
19:11
this building in this location and their
19:14
modernity the the possibilities the
19:17
building had the first guest was
19:18
actually the german emperor at that time
19:20
kaiser villain ii i am impressed
19:23
what a feat but then also as we might
19:26
know in the 1920s Berlin was the most
19:28
trendiest city in Europe everybody came
19:30
here we had from Charlie Chaplin overall
19:33
famous people at that time staying here
19:35
was us where the Russians are residing
19:37
at the art floor convinced so it was
19:39
really the place to be it was always
19:42
updated unfortunately destroyed during
19:44
the Second World War
19:45
Oliver is that true that the Adlon was
19:47
destroyed just the last few days
19:50
of the world Second World War in what
19:53
1945 very unlucky the hotel was really
19:57
one of the last buildings that got
19:58
destroyed in Berlin but what to do what
20:03
could be done we are very very positive
20:07
and happy about that we found the right
20:09
people who believed in that history and
20:11
we built this famous building this
20:14
famous icon of hotel industry back in
20:16
Berlin after unification and today again
20:19
there is the loans at one hotel run by
20:22
convinced key and we're very very proud
20:24
to be here you certainly may be proud of
20:26
that Oliver and for the fact that you
20:29
came along just under two years ago took
20:32
over the other had lost a little bit of
20:35
its glamour and could we say that I
20:40
think you know challenging times
20:42
obviously at the financial crisis Berlin
20:44
was maybe not not being as much fancy
20:47
anymore
20:47
not only the Africa Pinsky came back all
20:50
to the city came back and then as I
20:52
truly believe the right team makes it
20:54
happen laughs there's no no reason you
20:56
know to to think oh is the art and I'm
20:58
not allowed I cannot look you know this
21:01
is a place we should feel home and I
21:03
invite all of your guests your viewers
21:05
you know when you're in Berlin stay with
