What's Going on among Apartment Type Accommodations?

Through my apartment experience in Europe, I noticed in these 2-3 years
some transformation in operation system among apartment type accommodations.
That is "no human attendant on site" system,
which has been spreading here and there.
Basically apartment type accommodation needs no face-to-face service,
so that can be controlled only by key delivery.
So apartment stay is said to be more at ease without meeting others.

Formerly owners usually came up on site and proudly showed us their elaborate interiors.
This practice has been losing in these2-3 years.
Some case a part-time personnel shows-up, who often disappears quickly after insufficient information.
Some case guest is directed to collect key at neighbor shop.
There causes nor affection nor respect to the property inside the guest.
Because for the owner side there is no concern about what person stays in their property.
Just only the investment and its return are their concern.

More severe case I met. That was 2times telephone call was requested.
In addition to normal call, we were requested another call to obtain 2 kinds of code number,
one was to enter the building the other was of room key box.
Not given any information about this system after booking,
what a stress to call at noisy street and to catch many exact figures correctly by telephone!
The apartment rooms ware luxury and full-equipped. But I felt no respect to the room equally to the owner,
with which I always take much care to stay the room.

This system might be practical and reasonable. The most valuable charm of journey, however, disappears I think.
Touching local people and local life would be most unforgettable memory I assure.


この3月にポルトガルを訪れた時の印象です。
宿泊利用のアパートメントは、オーナーからカギを受け取って
丸々アパートメントを自由に利用できる気楽なところがあります。
最初の頃は、オーナーが自分の趣味で改装したアパートメントを
とても誇らしげに案内してくれていた時期がありました。
ところがこの2、3年大きく変わってしまいました。
とてもすばらしい改装であっても、カギを持ってくるのは
アルバイトの学生のような方です。説明もそこそこに逃げるように
消え去る方もいます。
最近はもっと状況が難しくなり、到着したら電話して下さいという
例が多くなりました。電話をすると半分の確率で、用事があって
そちらに行けない。入り口のテンキーの番号を言うので中に入ってくれ。
中に入ると、キーは郵便受けの中にある。というような具合でほとんど
顔を合わせることがありません。こんなことを英語でやり取りするのは
大変です。

アパートメントを利益を上げるための投資以外に考えていないようです。
せっかくの楽しい機会を失うのはお互いに残念です。
