A Glasgow woman shared her horror after seeing the hotel she was staying in as part of her Wowcher mystery holiday looked like a “ket den”.
Bryony Scott, who works in a customer care service said “if I don’t laugh I’ll f****** cry” after she saw photos of the Budapest hotel she would be staying in.
She also had to pay extra to fly from a Scottish airport.
The woman also joked that she “will not be returning alive” from the Wowcher break, which begins on January 24 and lasts for three nights, reported the Daily Record.
She bought the £99($129) deal, in which customers paid for a holiday without knowing where there’ll be going. Bryony was excited to know that she would be heading to Hungary’s popular capital.
Despite knowing she’d have to pay an extra £80($104) to fly from a Scottish airport, she looked at where she’d be staying.
When Bryony and her mate found out they would be visiting into the three-star Hotel Fortuna, they checked it’s TripAdvisor reviews. And, the reviews left in horror.
Despite being in a central location, Bryony described pictures of the hotel as looking like a “crime scene”.
The bathrooms were so dirty with hair in the shower, there were webs at the windows and an odd fence next to the bed was disgusting.
A TripAdvisor reviewer named Dani R explained about the hotel, saying “in the bathroom, there were dirty towels and hair of other people.
With an average rating of just two and a half stars on TripAdvisor, many other holidaymakers said the same things about Hotel Fortuna.
“This place is horrible […] The place needs serious updating and very serious deep cleaning,” Katie D said.
One person, Pauline C, did give the hotel four stars.
She wrote: “It needs an uplift, however, it’s quite reasonable and good value for money with larger than normal rooms.
“The breakfast is more than sufficient. What makes this hotel so special is the efficient and kind-hearted receptionist with very good mastery of English.”
“Right so booked the Wowcher Mystery Holiday last year,” she said.
“I go away in about 20 days. Just checked the hotel am staying at and a can confirm – it looks like a f****** ket den. Will not be returning alive.
“There’s a fence next to the bed, the shower looks like a crime scene.
“If I don’t laugh I’ll f****** cry, I’m taking a f****** sleeping bag.”
Bryony explained that her friend talked to Weekender Breaks, but they denied to move the pair into another hotel unless they pay more.
“I knew I wouldn’t be staying in a place like the Hilton paying £100($130). But it’ll be a laugh and I’m sure it’ll have some good stories to tell,” she said.
