After spending more than $1500 staying at this hotel, I was presented on checkout with a minibar bill of around $40 for items I never saw or consumed. Normal business practice for most hotels is to write these off as an error, or at least give the customer benefit of the doubt. What ensued was a heated discussion at the reception desk, involving the staff member who checked the mini bar, the cashier, and finally the manager. All were absolutely recalcitrant and unable to adjust the small amount. I paid for those items even though I had only ever consumed items that I had purchased outside and put in the fridge to save expenses. Laico's bizarre management style is: the customer is always wrong.
They have lost one customer, and I understand now why the hotel was almost empty.
