  1. Unfortunately, some of their non renovated, previous smoking rooms still smell.

  2. I can understand people not liking the smell of stale smoke, but a lot of people still do smoke. That’s why most hotels offer the option of smoking or non-smoking rooms. They usually ask for preferences at the time of booking.

    I can accept where I can and can’t smoke – and the rules everywhere are getting stricter all the time. But I still have some choice available, and I wouldn’t choose to stay in a non-smoking hotel.

    It’s a bit cheeky, though, to give you a room that stinks of smoke when you’ve asked for non-smoking room. I stayed in a hotel in Thailand (which I won’t name) which tried to put us into a non-smoking room. I said I didn’t want it.

    “Oh, that’s OK”, said the porter and pulled an ashtray out of a drawer. LOL!

  3. I’m with Kendal on this one, there is nothing worse than requesting a non smoking room and getting one that smells of smoke, I understand that smokers wish to smoke and that there should be a choice. But can’t stand being put in a smokers room. !
