Holidaymaker’s Sea View Room Was Giant Poster

A woman who had paid through the nose for a hotel room with a stunning sea view realises she has been conned with a giant poster.

Influencer Clarisa Murgia had paid extra for the room because of the spectacular coastal views in the advert as part of a holiday of a lifetime across Europe.

But when she checked in she discovered the breathtaking view was just a huge seaside poster stuck on the wall of a building opposite her balcony.

As she filmed the scene, Clarisa showed how from one angle the poster looked just like the real thing.


But as she pans to the side the footage shows it is just a huge picture on the other side of a dingy alley.

The real view is a crumbling white wall and rows of barred windows.

She then shared a video of the massive scam on TikTok on 18th May in a clip titled ‘Expectation vs Reality’.

Argentine national Calrisa added: “Someone rented a B&B with a sea view. I feel scammed, guys.

“No one has ever deceived me like this before, hahaha.”

The video quickly clocked up more than 2.5 million views.

TikTok user ‘ermiiguelito’ said: “That’s why I always look at the location so I don’t fail.”

And ‘javi’ added: “My luck in life is summarised in this video.”
