Hi Friends,

The bad one:

This happened in 2006 at Amman, Jordan. My contact reserved a hotel which claimed to be 4 star. When we went to that place it was like the cheap ones near Majestic and went for different one.

The other hotel charged US$ 160 per night (normal rate US$ 100) and one of the days it sent me to another cheap hotel keeping the price same (the cheaper one charged this hotel US$ 40 per night).

I would recommend to check the hotels before arriving to ensure they offer what they put in writing and preferably go through a good local contact.

The good experience:

During one of my trips to Belgium in 2004 Jan, the local company reserved a room for weekend at a bed & breakfast hotel in Brussels as we were flying next day early morning. This hotel is around 5-6 KMs from airport and we reached late in the night. They left room key and a note about the room charges which will be billed to my credit card. We vacated the room early morning next day. To my surprise they never billed to my card. The company later got info from hotel that they didn't charge because we stayed less than 12 hours and didn't have the breakfast.

Also we waited for taxi for more than 20 minutes. One of the guest's family was going to airport and on request they sent taxi from airport. The taxi driver said normally they charge from starting point but considering our situation he only insisted the fare from hotel to airport. I too agree with Ram - that is why it rains :-)



Cheers,

Shivaji.
