The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


If Only All Monday’s Could Feel This Way …

That photo above is of the mini-bar price list for the East Hotel in Bejing.

And no, that’s not a typo … everything in the mini-bar is free.

FREE!!!

EVERYTHING!!!

At a time where so many hotels are trying to charge you bloody fortune for basic amenities … like toothbrushes and water.

I have written many posts over the years about how customer service in Asian hotels is better than anywhere else in the World and this is another reason why … though I must admit it would have been better if they’d told me about the freebie mini-bar when I checked into the hotel rather than having me realise it just as I was checking out.

Cunning bastards.

Your life is one free holiday isn’t it Rob. That’s why I’m surrounded by people celebrating July 4th, they don’t want to be associated with you and your sort. I have tried to explain you’re an anomaly, but they’re not taking it.

Comment by DH

Well they’re going to be going mental given they’re currently leading 4-1. Thank god I got out before that happened or I’d never hear the end of it.

Comment by Rob

How many cans of beer did you get? Bet it was 2. Free doesn’t mean much when they limit the amount of abuse you can do.

Comment by DH

You never miss out on freebies. Bet you’re asking them to send you the fridge.
USA. USA. USA. USA.

You are the reason I made the above comment to Dave.

Congratulations. Unless Japan decide to come back and do the biggest piss on Americana since a certain incident in a harbour.

I’m surprised you didn’t post that “I believe” video.

You’re losing your touch.

this is going to be fucking worse than 1966. or even 1066 while im fucking at it.

Comment by andy@cynic

Everything is free once you’ve left. This encourages you to rebook. However, on your next visit, you’ll discover the policy has been revoked.

Comment by John

To be honest, I’m just grateful they let me stay in their hotel in the first place.

Comment by Rob

Ah right. The free mini bar was a gesture of good will and compensation for your fellow guests.

Comment by John

$2 crack whores cost more to buy than you do campbell. and yet fuckers still hand over the cash and the diet fucking coke. fucking morons.

Comment by andy@cynic

This is amazing they did that little menu haha!
Yes Asian hotels is better than anywhere else in the World, I confirm also. In Vegas I was insulted I had to pay 7$ for a bottle of water… isn’t that supposed to be included? Most of the rooms in North America does not include it even when you’re staying in a 4 or 5 star, that’s just incredible…
