The Worst View From a Hotel Room I Have Ever Seen?

A nice view is usually a good accompaniment to the main purpose of staying in a hotel room, which is to have a comfortable place to sleep and recharge while traveling. Although there are certainly exceptions, the view is usually not the top priority in choosing a hotel property or a specific room…

The Worst View From a Hotel Room I Have Ever Seen?

…but although this view from the room at which I was staying at the AC Hotel Coslada Aeropuerto in Madrid was rather poor, the view from a hotel room in which I recently stayed was worse.

Does this view not compel you to take that special someone and get in a romantic mood? Hey — at least a bit of blue sky managed to peek through the clouds in this otherwise dreary photograph.

This is literally the end of the line, as indicated by the railroad tracks which simply end. The weeds accentuate the white containers scattered in the background and help the wall in the foreground achieve prominence as probably the best part of this view.

I normally attempt to photograph views without the artifacts caused by the reflection in the window — but in this case, not only did I not care; but perhaps the view of piles of junk in front of a blue shed is actually improved.


This is a preview of this hotel property at which I stayed — and details of my stay are included in this article. I would advise management to have some type of shrubbery or other natural screening to be planted to help improve the view.

I tried and tried; but I still cannot recall a view from a hotel room which was worse than this one in the years during which I have traveled — ergo, the question mark in the title of this article…

…but perhaps this is not the worst view from a hotel room which you have ever seen. I am interested to learn of views which you believe are worse and details about them — if you dare to remember them…

    The scene you described seems like the beginning of a really good novel.

    Maybe it should serve as inspiration for you to write it? 🙂

    The metaphorical ending of the line for a traveller who must now face the demons from which he was running? The stagnation of political and monetary ambition in the face of broken promises? The rise of a dream up from the pits of despair?

    Seriously, this all sets the scene for a really good novel or play. #GlassHalfFullApproach

    Well, there’s always the Sheraton Heathrow where the rooms in the back overlook the Heathrow immigration detetention center (think razor-wire topped barrier, typical prison style).

    Nice hotel, though. The only bother is that view. Simple enough to ignore.
