A Truly Rubbish Book,
This review is from: Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection: Italy (Mr & Mrs Smith Hotels) (Paperback)
I was completely disappointed with this product, and won't be buying anymore of their guides. The range of hotels is dismal (only 1 in most locations and 2 in Rome/Florence etc!!!). Local information is also virtually non-existent (a couple of ad hoc paragraphs) and certainly not worth the price of the book. You'll find incomparably more information as well as a wonderful range of hotels in guidebooks, which I might add are also cheaper, such as Fodor's, not to mention more pictures. Even the picture, paper and book quality are shocking (within 1 minute of opening it the pages are already loose on the spine).
In fact I'm not sure what the point of this book really is; it fails in every respect and seems to purely serve as a marketing gimmick (they include a card offering membership for their shocking limited and overpriced travel services) for their travel booking service, which I would never use as it seems to be completely useless, as is their website.
Don't waste your money!

The paper is lacklustre, everything seems dull, couldn't agree more.
