Room with an Anti-View: The Definition of a Shitty View

August 3, 2006 at 11:22 AM | by | ()

You know the scene. You open the door to your brand new hotel room, run over to the window, open the blinds and bam, you are hit with the anti-view. Maybe you are looking down a dirty alley, witnessing a drug deal, staring at an air shaft in the face, or seeing a brick wall. Whatever you are viewing it is not extremely pleasurable. Help out your fellow hotel mavens by uploading your anti-views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number with the not-so-easy-on-the-eyes view.

Thinking of Argentina, one imagines mountain ranges, the beaches, the vineyards of Mendoza, the skyline of Buenos Aire. You can of course go more off the beaten path to Foz do Iguacu, a waterfall so big that it pities Niagra Falls. It seems however, the only great view you're going to get here, will remain at the Parque Nacional of the falls and not at the hotels that will house you while there. Check out this Flickr photo taken to show off this sad scene.

This view of a manure-filled field is from the Hotel Royal Park in Foz do Iguacu. The hotel describes it differently of course:

It is located in a privileged area of the city, combining comfort, nature, business and pleasure

OK, well perhaps an Argentinean's idea of nature and pleasure is the smell of cow shit.
