Chiswick couple Denise and Ian Feltham have had the story of their ruined holiday splashed across the British press.
Many newspapers carried the story yesterday of how they believed they had booked a VIP penthouse apartment with a hot tub, Turkish bath and a five-star experience in Ibiza through airbnb.
Instead of that they found that though the luxury apartment complex existed, the penthouse did not and they had to make a swift booking at an apartment 64 kilometers away.
Ian Feltham, 75, told The Times: “A gentleman who lived in the building said they get tourists turning up all the time, and that it’s a very big problem”.
Airbnb has apologised, and is investigating.
