1 cent hotel stay






Unfortunately for the later customers and the hotel, the one-cent hotel stay booking offer was a serious mistake. The hotel thought a hacker might have been responsible for the rate that showed up on it’s website one day, but it turns out that an employee screwed things up big time. Now they are stuck with the bill.

The actual discount offer was meant to be half-price for two nights because, you see, they are suffering a recession in Italy was well. Over 200 guests made reservations while the website offer was up, enough to book rooms for almost 1,500 hundred nights. The hotel will stand by the 1 cent hotel stay offer, but they will lose over $100,000 in the process. Ouch!
