- Hotel showers
As somebody who travels a lot for work, and has stayed in a lot of (usually crap) hotels, I never get in the shower until I’m happy it is running at the right temp.
some are great, but others are just crap.
I’ve also experienced the liquid nitrogen/superheated steam effects and can’t say I enjoy it.
Dependent on the hotels water supply (and method of heating) the temp can go up and down as other guests switch their showers on and off.Posted 4 years ago
Me and Mrs S. Stayed in Liverpool on Saturday and a very nice stay it was too. However as with every other hotel we’ve stayed in recently, shower time was perilous. Hotel showers seem to have 3 settings:
1. Liquid nitrogen.
2. Oooooh just lovely.
3. Superheated steam
The problem is, by the time you’ve found setting no. 2, you’ve already been hospitalised with full thickness burns from 1. or 3.
What am I doing wrong??Posted 4 years agoretro83Member
What you’ve neglected to mention is that the distance between absolute zero and nuclear fusion on the shower dial is about 6 microns.Posted 4 years ago
You so much as fart in its general direction and it’ll go from toasty to the bit of Terminator 2 where the shapeshifting robot steps in the liquid nitrogen in a nanosecond.WorldClassAccidentMember
I managed to stay in a posh hotel once with a ‘full body shower’ which basically was a series of water cannons mounted on the wall aiming at the shower screen door.
No way to adjust the pressure.
No way to test the temperature before scalding/freezing
No shower curtain or windows on the room so showering while watching the woman in the room opposite undressing was initially exciting and then very embarrassing as she looked across and waved at me.Posted 4 years agofootflapsSubscriber

Sounds interesting, where was this (purely interested for research purposes)?Posted 4 years agocheekyboyMember
I have just spent 8 weeks in a hotel in Benin City Nigeria, the shower head used to clog up with silt, then the pumps would fail, one day they brought me a huge barrel of water to my room, i reckon about 40-50 litres, the guy who brought it up 2 storeys was built like a sparrow and didn’t spill a drop, you could have made a brew with it was that hot, I had to sit sweating in me undies for an hour whilst it cooled and then they re-started the pumps! !Posted 4 years ago
