When I booked a hotel in London to stay for one night I chose what I believed to be a central location Hilton hotel which, judging from the photos, seemed to offer good value for money.
I have to admit that it has been many years since I felt so foolish with my choice.
The room was abhorrent. It seemed that it had not been renovated for at least 25 years. You could easily shoot a 1987 movie in there…
Dilapidated is a nice word to describe it..
Things did not seem quite clean either.
The carpet must have been there forever.
As for the bathrooms they were coming straight from a 1-2 star hotel.
Trying to find one good thing to tell the hotel staff was, on balance, quite helpful.
I had recently stayed at a Park lane hotel on the same price…no comparison whatsoever.
I never thought that such a hotel could bear the Hilton brand name.
What a disappointment!
