This is a question Hotel Splendido

Enzyme writes, "what about awful hotels, B&Bs, or friends' houses where you've had no choice but to stay the night?"

What, the place in Oxford that had the mattresses encased in plastic (crinkly noises all night), the place in Blackpool where the night manager would drum to the music on his ipod on the corridor walls as he did his rounds, or the place in Lancaster where the two single beds(!) collapsed through metal fatigue?

Add your crappy hotel experiences to our list.

Barca - again!
Hotel Rome Reial in Barcelona.

We got a really cheap deal from a friend who worked for STA Travel, and I guess I should have heard the alarm bells when he sent me a syringe with my booking confirmation. The place is a complete hovel, full of the best of Barca's lost-it skag heads. Windows opening onto brickwork, non-functioning bathrooms, same old story. It wasn't so much the interior of the hotel that bothered me, I'm a firm believer in that if you aren't going to spend much time in your hotel, then your money is better spent on fags/alcohol/a padlock for your door/whatever. However, on the last night I was sitting right outside the hotel in the Plaza, having a drink (verrry beautiful, which made up for the hotel) and a twitchy looking guy at the table next to me got stabbed in the back by one of my fellow guests. Excellent holiday photo though.
