It has happened to all of see a great deal advertised for a hotel and the excitement of getting the SPECIAL DEAL overwhelms you and click!, you’ve booked  hotel room in a city far, far away. Then you get there and well…the entrance is in the building they showed on the site, but it’s a little door off to the side, the lobby is not a bright and sparkly as the touched-up image on the website, the receptionist is drab and slow, the room is ok, but smells like ammonia and the city-skyline you had hoped to see from the window, is actually a view of the back parking lot and humming air-conditioning  units.

Does this sound like something you’re familiar with…well it has happened to me! Here is a clever video (in Italian) of the ad for Holiday Inn Express… it’s brilliant!  It depicts perfectly the inconvenience of booking a “special deal”. I laughed so much when I saw it- I’m even tempted to looking into booking a  Holiday Inn Express for my next trip! (there are locations all over Europe) There are several locations both  in Milan and  in Rome. The prices are incredibly reasonable and the locations are very strategic. I even looked on the website for prices during peak seasons and surprisingly they were quite affordable for a weekend  in Milan . Video
