I have previously stayed at this hotel for 20 times, solely because I like the location in Hurlingham, where I used to live some years ago.. This time was the last. When checking in, after having got a room, I was suddenly told, almost attacked, by a sealous little senior lady at the reception that I should pay for my room in advance, and in dollars. As if I was some seedy character, although she knew me very very well.
I complied, but upon coming to my room, I realised how much the hotel had changed. The TV was all white noise. The toilet could not flush. The towel was a rag with big holes. etc. etc. The room was the same I paid 20 dollars lower for some months back. A scam of sorts, to put it bluntly. Trick could be, once you get familiar with your room, you want to leave immediately, but then you have already paid.
Needless to say, I checked out the next morning. Asking for the hotel manager, he was nowhere to be found. He is always around, is my experience, so Olive Gardens now get the worst review I can ever think of.
I complied, paying USdollars 111 in advance, and then I realised what a ascam it all isitpion
