And at the end of the road: Nouadhibou, a town in the West African country Mauritania, bordered by the ocean on one side and the Sahara Desert on the other. A bleak and inhospitable departure point for the tens of thousands of people that pour in from neighboring countries, all with only one dream in mind: Europe. Hotel Sahara is a film journey to the last invisible border separating the West-African coast and Europe. The bleak city on the Atlantic Coast is a metaphor, a point of arrival and of departure, a gathering place of broken dreams - a place of waiting for that better life on the far side of the Atlantic. It is above all a no-man's land, a place of endless waiting and endless hoping. The film reveals how difficult it is to differentiate between "true" and "false" refugees. Is one "real" only when threatened life and limb? What if one simply desires to escape a deadening lack of perspective? With an observant and cautious eye, Hotel Sahara documents how closely the dream of a better life is linked to sudden stagnancy, and how much patience is required to wait for years to finally, perhaps, arrive somewhere. ...Hotel Sahara ( Xenodoheio Sahara )

It is a city centre hotel so you are well placed for all your needs. It is a short walk to the shops and bars, so definitely come here...

Review of Mint Hotel, Leeds
Advantages: Great location, beautiful rooms Disadvantages: Entrance is not very obvious from main road
...I stayed at the Park Plaza hotel in Leeds in August 2009 when I visited a friend in Leeds.
I booked online through the Park Plaza website. I found the website easy to use and thought that it was well laid out, making it easy for me to choose the room I required. I decided on the entertainment package offer which was £89 for bed, breakfast, a bottle of wine and free movies. I thought...
Advantages: Most of it Disadvantages: 1 pillow and minimal towels
...Why this hotel Since having my own blog, I have really wanted to go to book signings. My now co-blogger, Vicki and I decided to try to find something that we could both get to relatively easily and to stay the night before the signing. When looking at what was going on in December, we found that L.A. Weatherly was signing her book in Leeds, which we had both reviewed, so this is the event...
