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.

Maybe we're not being fair to Glasgow's ABode Hotel. First, we complained that its enviable rooms aren't up to enviable standard, and we also whined about its weird capitalization thing.

And now we're slamming an Anti-View tag on it, although that's pretty well deserved when you see this pretty shocking view over an awful air vent system and some dirty walls.

However, Glasgow fans tell us that the ABode has a funky bar and is in a good location, so it ain't all bad. They've got bed and breakfast deals going for £75 (US$145) a room at the moment (in a Comfortable-level room) but we're presuming these cheaper deals run you the risk of getting stuck with this view.
