Why Vincci Hotel Arena sucks?

Just because they steal property of their clients.

Detailed info with explanations will be here soon, we're currently working on site design and html stuff.

Stay tuned, Mr. Ramon Alegret Grau!


Please find my detailed review of Hotel Vincci Arena on Tripadvisor here

Feel free to contact me via email


For now here is our emailing thread below:

Dear Mr. Calero,

We stayed at Vincci Arena for our honey moon, and we had our wedding

glasses stolen from our room. The principal PROMISED to compensate for

the glasses, but now the Manager is saying they won't and is even

rejecting the very fact of glasses existance. Pls read the

correspondence below. We're enclosing the picture of the glasses in

the hotel before they were stolen. We urge you to pay attention to

this matter, as it casts a shadow on your chain reputation.

Looking fwd to your response.

Dear Mr. Ramon Alegret Grau,

I agree with you totally about the safety box. But there is a little

problem with this logic - your reception people ADMITTED that the

cleaning lady took them out of the room - therefore obviously it was

very well KNOWN to them that they were in the room. The second problem

is that your reception PROMISED (as they said the PRINCIPAL promised)

to reimburse when the checks are received.

If from the very beginning they would have said that there was no

glasses, there was no proof they were there, that would have been

clear. Sorry, I do not wear dictophone on me, as I'm dealing mostle

with decent people. I have to travel a lot - I work in

advertising agency and have a lot of business

trips, and nothing like this ever happened to me. It is APPALLING and

INAPPROPRIATE to say now that there were no glasses. Actually, the day

before the incident they were also taken out of the room - but they

were found. So, the fact that they were there are very well known by

your staff. It's a pity we didn't hide them the next day. We had a lot

of things - like clothes for example - worth of the same amount of

money. Would you suggest that we should have put dresses, jackets, etc

into the safe? Anyway - pls talk to your reception, I doubt that they

will lie on the fact that cleaning lady admitted she took the glasses.

And from the very beginning they were assuring us we will be

compensated - it was not our idea - as we wanted to get the glasses

back most of all. Which they failed to provide.

Second - your reception PROMISED that Prinicipal PROMISED to

compensate for the glasses if we provided the checks. They could have

said - but they didn't - that we had to put them in the safe.

Probably, they were just trying to be decent - as this is the honey

moon, and they didn't want to spoil it. Another idea that comes to my

mind is that they just wanted us to leave for Russia - hoping that

this is far, and we won't be able to do anything.

Pls provide me with the contact of the PRINCIPAL. It would be

interesting to talk to a Top Manager who breaks promises so easily.

This is something very new to me.
