European hotel booking site Trivago just released the results of their “worst hotel experience” survey. In total, 4,876 people were included in the survey, from 8 different countries.
The results are actually quite surprising, as 22% of the respondents put “bugs in the room” at the top spot.
And now I think about it, my worst ever hotel experience was indeed bug related. At a hotel in Spain, I lay in bed watching in horror as a whole bunch of cockroaches made their way up onto my nightstand. The hotel management removed them, but I don’t think I slept much for the rest of my vacation.
Other annoyances include theft, noise, bad food, bad staff and get this – chlorine poisoning from the pool.
After the jump, the complete results of the survey. Don’t forget to add your own “worst hotel experience” to the comments!
