three-ruble notes, which offer the All Inclusive service system, were listed by a Russian tourist living in Turkey.
In her blog on Yandex.Zen, the traveler said that she never goes to rest in such three-star hotels, because . they always disappoint both in terms of service level and other criteria. Let's list a list of seven items that annoy a compatriot the most in budget hotels.
First, familiar communication in the style of “Hi, bro!” “I believe that there should be a respectful or formal type of relationship between hotel employees and vacationers. However, in cheap resorts this is usually not the case. “Hi bro! Will you have vodka? a young waiter says to an older man at a nearby table. “Hey babe, are you married?” the bartender tells me. And the animator passing by the lounger splashes water from the pool on the vacationers and laughs, ”the author gave an example and added that she really didn’t mind talking and joking with them, but there should be a distance.
Second, the incompetence of the staff. A tourist told how once, while relaxing in a popular budget 5-star hotel, she noticed how its employees were dressed: “Their white shirts turned yellow with age, and someone even torn. Some also showed off huge spots under their arms,” the girl was surprised at the personal untidiness of the staff.
Third, dirty hotel. According to the traveler, it's terrible when the owners of cheap hotels save on everything, including cleaning. “They don't hire enough maids or pay them so little that they just don't have the incentive to try. And of course, such owners never change what has already worn out in time,” the compatriot explained, adding that the result of such management manifests itself very quickly in the form of tablecloths with holes, falling apart terry towels, sticky surfaces in public places, as well as dirty dishes , mold in the bathroom, etc.
Fourth, poor quality food. For budget hotels, serving bad food means saving money. “There is nothing wrong with living in a hotel where only rice, pasta and chicken are cooked for hot food … But what I absolutely do not accept is when a hotel saves on the quality of products. And also does not monitor the cleanliness of the restaurant and the freshness of the dishes. Once I ended up in a hotel, where all the salads and desserts were “winded out” at lunch, and they were not ashamed to serve them for dinner. And they even bought the cheapest fruits: tasteless and “wooden”. But you still need to look for such people in Turkey!”
Fifth, cheap drinks. The traveler said that cheap hotels almost always offer “terrible tasting chemical liquid” instead of juice, and drinks made from substitutes instead of natural alcoholic cocktails.
Sixth, a kind of contingent. “Several years ago, it was believed that only a special category of tourists had a rest in Turkey. They drink a lot, lie on the beach with beer on their belly, shouting “Tagil!” and fights all the time. Now this is a stereotype. In Turkey's all-inclusive hotels, intelligent people are much more common: both Russians and Europeans, ”she explained. However, she immediately clarified that this does not apply to the cheapest hotels. Fans of walking until the morning and falling asleep with their faces in a salad are concentrated mainly in budget hotels offering All Inclusive.
And the last thing is that the administration and owners do not care about the guests. We are talking about the overall relaxing atmosphere that the staff sets. “I have met wonderful staff in budget hotels more than once. But in frankly cheap places, lazy employees most often work. A vivid example is the bartender on the beach, who pours beer and lemonade into glasses in advance, so that later he can calmly “stick on the phone” (and in the meantime the drinks heat up and run out of steam). Or a lazy waiter who deliberately does not remove dirty dishes from the tables in a timely manner, so that later they can collect everything in one fell swoop when the tourists leave,” the blogger specified.
