"Everybody else does it"
Posted Jun 9, 2016 on Hotels
"Everyone else does it", this is what I was told When I pointed out that the conversion rate offered was more than 10% higher than the going rate. The check in was robotic, the AC ran all night until the room was unbearably cold ( I grew up in the north of Scotland, so I know cold, the maid barged into our room without announcing herself at 9:00AM. But as the desk clerk said "Everybody else does it"! I've worked in Venice, my advice is, take a long day trip to Venice, and leave before it sours you on the rest of the country. Not to say everyone is bad, but just enough to be almost unavoidable. And certainly avoid this hotel if possible
