tourist class hotel
several days ago i wrote a review, uno answered in his
very own way and i start to brood over what he said and
started a little investigation.
it is not easy to write a review about the fig...
it's all about the perspectiv. if you just look at the
hotel like a normal tourist does, you can easily get trapped
in the thought that this hotel doesn't provide the comfort and "class"
you are expecting/you are familiar with, from other brands ( chain hotels ).
but is this a BAD thing at all ? Uno doesn't hide ANYTHING. if you
try to find out more about the hotel and the owner you will easily find
informations which will absolutly change your point of view.
Uno says its a tourist class hotel; they dont renovate - they fix with a little
paint here - a little something there and they add unique stuff to the unique fig.
if you dig a little bit deeper all of a sudden you realise that the bigger chains
brainwash the tourist customers in a way, that they realy belive they need 20 room
services a day; that they realy need the 20star fridge; the 50m LCD screen;
24/7 room service with a tripple language personal service guy - just for YOU.
it is a tourist hotel, it is not cheap in a way of "chabby" it's more like
a hotel, where you dont have to pay for silly crap; where the owner absolutly cares about
his hotel because of the fact it is HIS hotel. No Chain, No super duper quality management
or wallstreet guys dictate something.
don't get me wrong, he is not a saint or something and living in west hollywood is not
the cheapest way of living...and hey, which hotel owner has his own internet meme ?
i would stay here again.
