Most commonly stolen items from luxury hotels


    A recent survey by a luxury hotel guide of over 1,100 4-star and 5-star hotel staff, located primarily in Europe, to determine which items were frequently stolen. Below is a list of the top 11 stolen items:

    1. Lamps


    Not the brightest idea – 4.3% of hotels said they stole lights from rooms.

    2. Telephones


    Almost 5% of hotels indicated that telephones were removed from the rooms.

    3. TVs


    6.1% of hotels said TVs disappeared from rooms, and French guests are the most likely criminals. The sets are nine times more likely to come from a five-star hotel than from a four-star hotel.

    4. Coffee machines

    More than 20% of hotels report that the decor has disappeared, and they are luxury travelers again. Five-star guests loot art more than five times more often than four-star travelers.

    10. Batteries


    American hotel guests are most likely to empty the room with batteries that have disappeared from 22% of the hotels surveyed.

    11. Cosmetics


    It turns out that the only thing that five- and four-star guests like is the cosmetic products of their accommodations. Almost 33% of the hotels state that these goods are taken. The guilty? German and British guests.
