20 Hilarious Reviews of Accommodation in New York

When we start planning a trip we want everything to go as smooth as possible – from initial airport transfers to perfect plate of chicken wings (or whatever you prefer) once we arrive. But lets face it – one element of this whole “amazing trip” equation is probably slightly more important than others – we are talking of course about accommodation.

Yes, having a good time is probably the most important factor, but, having a good, safe and clean night sleep plays a crucial role on your holiday. Of course, if you have a huge budget and can always afford 5* hotels, this will never be an issue, but in reality, most of us tend to choose cheaper alternatives.

Now, while most of the time everything is good enough to fulfil this three basic requirements (safe, clean and comfortable enough), in some cases, guests get a bit less than they expected to say the least.

OK, without further ado, here are the 20 hilarious reviews of accommodation in New York City we found on Booking.com.

“No elevator. The entire neighbourhood smells like fish.”

13. John, 11 May 2016

“I’m no expert, but you don’t need special lights to notice white stains on the bed sheets. Must be washing powder…….”
