Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics, which begins Thursday, reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.
Less than ideal, I’d say.
Sochi is going to be a nightmare and I can’t wait.

Vintage postcard of the Quality Motel Perry, located at the “I-75 & U.S. 341 Interchange, Perry, Georgia,” where the rooms come with “COLOR CABLE TV.”
The Old Inn advertised itself as a “dog friendly B&B”. We were instructed that our dog had to remain either in our room or in the car. On our way out of the house, we accidentally locked our keys inside our bedroom…we were greeted by a chorus of shouts and screams by the hostess’ husband. Given the relentlessness of the shouting, we were feeling increasingly uncomfortable, especially after witnessing the chef shouting at his own two dogs in the town square while brandishing a broken tennis racket. - Ares75
in future do not take a PUPPY to a B& B. you asked to bring a small dog not a puppy every time something moved in the night your puppy made noises disrupting our sleep of which we get little. As for the key it was not you that volunteered to have to climb three storeys and drag themselves through a toilet window at 8.30 on a cold wet morning. If I did raise my voice to the dogs that is my personal right and nothing to do with a hotel review My last dog died crossing a road to sniff another dog so I think that I am entitled to be annoyed at my dog for being diobedient.
