I never noticed that. Better be more careful next time OP Maybe next time you go to a hotel you can fill the safe up with rocks and bring your valuables with you. You know, just in case :P
Next time avoid staying at Bates Motel. Mother wouldn't approve.
that's when you place an explosive divice in it so if it's opened forcefully it blows up and kills the theif...
Ugh. - especially so if traveling abroad. I had my passport & camera stolen while in Poland on a group trip and was stuck for 3 days figuring everything out with the consulate and travel agency while the group went on to the warm weather part of the trip. Hope you had a friend to help you OP!
Sue the hotel I mean their responsability for not attatching safe. Oh and next time make sure safe is safe.
Is it really? I'm not aware of any law requiring this (of course I have not looked very hard) and any hotel room I have stayed in says something like "A safe is provided for your convenience but the hotel accepts no liability...". It is, however, pretty suspicious. You can't just slip a safe into your coat pocket so whoever took this had some means of removing it, suggesting that it was more than a spur-of-the-moment thing. It would also not be worth stealing a hotel safe unless you expected to be able to open it. The likely value of what's inside and the work involved in forcing it open suggest to me that they had a "master-key" type device but didn't want it to look like an inside job as it would if they opened it in the room. I reckon it's a stitch up.
Are people that oblivious lately? It's easy to see of someone is carrying a safe or so on I guess.. But fyl :/ Hope you get your stuff replaced ^_^ At least you only lost valuables and not your life :) Thy should be your main concern But now you know from experience to double or triple check any safe :)
You should take it up with the hotel because its their fault! They should pay for everything stolen.
