Loan and her family members took a train to Cua Lo. After a traveling a long distance, they wished to relax in their hotel rooms which they booked before the departure.
However, when Loan checked in at the hotel, she was told that her name was not found in the list of guests who reserved rooms before. After long arguments, the hotel’s manager admitted that the receptionist might forget taking her name into the reservation list.
Offering an apology to Loan, the manager said no more room with the rate of VND500,000 was left unoccupied, and only VND1.2 million per night rooms were available.
It was too late at 10 pm, and she had to accept the VND1.2 million rooms. “We were told that this was the mistake of the receptionist. But I know they (the hotel) played trick to raise the hotel room rates,” she said.
“I tried to reserve hotel rooms soon, many days in advance, in order to avoid the room rate increases. However, hoteliers still can find many other ways to overcharge tourists,” she continued.
