When bad carpets happen to good hotels #1

Lord, some of them are just terrible. And many borderline offensive. Why do hotels always have such crap carpets? Has anyone figured this out yet? I don’t know the answer, perhaps they’re the cheapest ones or maybe management think they blend in with the hotel’s style (they don’t). Who knows? But what I do know is that no matter where you go in the world or what star rating the hotel is, unless the carpet is just plain, they are generally appalling.

Below is a selection of terrible hotel carpets I’ve come across in recent months. It’s not a name and shame situation so I’m not going to say which hotels they are from, and like my hotel Instagram faves this is a series as I’m sure the terrible carpets don’t stop with these stunners.

WHERE DID THEY EVEN GET THEM FROM?!

Enjoy.

    I think the pearler is at the Shangri La London which ripped up the carpets weeks before opening and then put down another terrible carpet! It’s truly shocking! xx

      I must check it out. I’ve never been to the Shangri La in London so all the more reason to go!

  2. Not all hotel carpets are ugly. The newer hotels have started to use brighter and less patterned carpets on their rooms and corridors but the older hotels still keep those, let’s call them, less beautiful carpets.

      You’re right Matthew, not all hotels have horrible carpets. But when they do they are truly awful.
