If we were to compare the lack of services with the facilities offered by “Hans Brinker Budget”, we would stay that this is the worst hotel in the world and we would be right.
The worst hotel in the world is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands and while most of the hotels try to convince their clients of the fact that they provide the best services and offer the best rooms, “Hans Brinker” tells its clients from the very beginning that there is no hot water in all the 127 rooms because the one thing the owners don’t want to do is to lie to their customers.
Advertising slogans include “It can’t get any worse. But we’ll do our best”, or “Improve your immune system – stay at Hans Brinker!” or the funny one “Now with beds in every room.”
A room here cost 25 euros per night, and as the hotel’s website informs, customers have to assume responsibility for their decision to stay here: ‘Those wishing to stay at the Hans Brinker Budget Hotel, Amsterdam, do so at their own risk and will not hold the hotel liable for food poisoning, mental breakdowns, terminal illness, lost limbs, radiation poisoning, certain diseases associated with the 18th century, plague, etc.’
“But, don’t worry, it’s not all bad, this unique has some serious ecological correctness going for it. That means that when the elevator in Hans Brinker is broken, you can use its eco-friendly elevator – the stairs. and when the shower’s not working you can take comfort in the fact that you’re keeping water consumption environmentally sound. No towels in the bathroom? You can always dry yourself using the window curtains. It’s all about seeing the glass half full.”
One guest said: “I’d read other reviews of the hostel before we got there, so was a bit nervous. Unfortunately most of the reviews I’d read were completely true. The rooms were like prison cells, with rickety old beds and metal lockers that didn’t close properly.”
