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.

Hong Kong's seedier side
After graduating from university in 2001, me and my missus of the time moved to Taiwan for about seven months or so, working as English teachers; however, since the work permits were taking time coming through, we had to leave the country at the end of our tourist visas and get them renewed in Hong Kong.

not much time to plan these things, we ended up booking into the only hotel we could find with a cheap room rate and accommodation: I forget the name of the place but the fact you paid by the hour suggested it wasn't a wholesome family place.

In fairness to the place, it was actually very plush: it came with free porn, condoms in the side tables and erotic and pornographic pictures on the wall - you could even put some coins into the bed to get it to vibrate, if you so wished.

The only problem was that the walls and ceilings were paper thin and although we hadn't stopped at this hotel for sex, it seemed everyone else in the rooms around us had - and the occupants of each room tended to change throughout the night on the hour...
