HOLIDAYMAKERS have been left horrified after stumbling across a "crime scene" in a four-star hotel.
Travellers discovered the seemingly alarming sight while
searching for accommodation with travel site Expedia.
A photograph of the serviced ‘King Suite’ in Bogota, Colombia shows a neutrally-decorated lounge area and kitchenette.
In the middle of the shot, however, there is a black coffee table and
what appears to be large and suspicious stain splattered all over the
But it is not what it seems.
The ‘stain’ is actually the pattern on a cream rug – yet it is was

Someone else replied: “I thought that too. Fire damage? Shooting?

Elsewhere, a casino hotel recently caused a stir when a guest claimed its carpets looked like they were covered in blood.
The gambler had arrived for a short stay and a flutter, but was disturbed at what they saw as a bizarre interior design option.
They shared a picture of the strange flooring on Reddit, to show other people exactly how bizarre it was.
They wrote: "The casino hotel I stayed at a few days ago went with blood stained circuit board as its carpet pattern."
The room in the casino and the one in Bogota might have ended up being nicer than the crime scene some they were, but other hotels turn out to be a lot worse than they appear online.
One guest almost ended up in a crime scene, after he got a room with what he described as "the worst view in the world".
Comedian Neema Naz was staying in a hotel in Alberta, Canada when he made the horrifying discovery.
He said in a video he shared on TikTok: "I'm in my hotel room and I was like 'wow, my blinds are closed – let me get some fresh light in here.'
"To then realise, this is my view – the ladies changing room, with a pool with kids in it.
"How about let me close the blinds actually so I don't get a peeping tom charge."
He added: "This is a terrible place to have a window."
