feels like it'd be funny
trip adisor is a great way for people to get an idea of what they're buying when it comes to things that are difficult to quantify or get a good feel for through just pictures

"This place attracts equally old and young from different parts of the world. A nice place to be with a good camera of course."
go ahead and do what you want
though I do wonder with some of the reviews on there what prompted the author to think "I have something to say!", such as the one above.
deserves everythignt hey get.
DO YOU like films and tv and music?
DO YOU have idols that you'd love to meet and know more about?
DO YOU like the idea of meeting your heroes?
WELL COME to Madame Tussades where there's waxwork dummies of them.
I don't get why Tussaudes is still so popular if this world of heat magazine and internet gossip but if you walk past there are multiple coach loads of foreign tourists (mainly Frnch/German from what I could tell) queueing up for ages to get in. They love that shit.
It is crazy expensive though, it's really just a tourist trap, one of those ones that no one who lives in London would go to.
They're fucking twats.
Look, a waxwork model that looks mostly like David Beckham in a suit, not moving!
Please tell me it's not a fucking portmanteau of prick/prat and fannies, otherwise I might just have to go and have a wee cry in the corner.
but what else am I supposed to do while I'm pretending to work? There's only so many trips to the toilet that I can make
''Upon investigation, as this property didn't meet our listing guidelines, the listing itself has been removed''
*didn't actually exist
is actually going to open that restaurant, surely?
every now and again stay at a hotel without checking it out on trip advisor, make your judgements then read what it says on trip advisor while you're still there and decide if you would have stayed based on the reviews. It's fun
Now tell us the good game
'little shit' about you?
employed up the wazoo. So employed.
a very positive review. So I nipped over to Trip Advisor and did it.
4s and 5s across the board.
"Everything tastes of mint. We went back a few times in the week and tried a few different things, but it just all tastes of mint. Fish - mint. Meat -mint. Chips - Mint.
Dunno why we kept goin back cause we all hate mint, its disgusting."
because ultimately, however bad or incompetent people might be, i'd rather they be able to earn a living. i'd just learn from the experience and not return. whether other people go there and have a bad experience, well that's not my problem.
i'm also pretty scpetical about these sort of review sites being abused, either by owners or staff, or by people who might have had sole bad experience which doesn't represent the establishment's genreal standards and practices, or some idiot with a personal grudge, whatever.
this isn't necessarily a reply to the OP, more a general point.
as in, dank, musty, pubes in the bed hotels, and restaurants where the food's been uncooked and the owners and staff just resented the general public.
maybe these people shouldn't be earning a living from providing those services, but i'm not sure it's my job to be judge, and the whole passive-aggresive 'walk off without saying owt, go to town on them online' thing's a bit of a shithouse trick, isn't it.
But Im not gonna lose any sleep saying the Burj Al Arab smelled like sweetcorn and the bed had a dirty nappy in it
you'll see a review with one star and 'avoid like the plague!!!1111' and you'll think 'oh, they had a bad time' and then you look at that users other reviews and every single one is them having a bad time all over the world with some 1 star cryathon about the most minor things. It's like their holiday only really starts once they're sat in their hotel room with a pen and paper noting down the inexcusable lightbulb wattage that is making them suicidal
every single hotel in the world is infested with rats
