A former flight attendant has shared advice on how to feel safe and secure in hotel rooms. Nassim, a former flight attendant, admitted that she doesn’t always feel safe in her hotel room – so uses these simple tips to help put herself at ease while staying abroad.

Her unease stems from a story she heard when she started her career. She was told that a crew member had gone into their hotel room where someone was hiding and they got attacked.

Since then, Nassim has always made sure to thoroughly check the room assigned to her before closing the door behind her. She said: “When I started flying I heard of a story where a crew member had gone into their hotel room and not checked it out properly and someone had hidden in the room.

“They got attacked so every time I got to a hotel room I would use my luggage case to keep the hotel door open. I then go inside and check everywhere.

“I would check the bathroom, under the bed, inside the wardrobes, under the table and behind the curtains to make sure that no one was in there. I would never ever enter a room without doing that.”

To provide extra security, Nassim also places her bag behind the door of hotels that don’t have chains and just rely on the lock to keep unwanted intruders out, Express reports. She added: “So I would place my bag by the door. In case someone would open it from the outside so that it would make a noise.”

Another tip she shared was to make sure no one is following you to your room. She said: “I would also make sure to never get in a lift with just one person and press my floor. And make sure no one is following you to your room.

“If you are feeling unsafe wait in the lobby until they have gone. Only then, proceed to go to your room especially if you are on your own.”

Nassim added: “I would always also put no room service on my door to avoid having anyone come in.”

The crew member recommended always using the room safe to store your documents. She said: “I did use the safes as well for my important documents and money. Always, always use that!!

“I always leave my tv on as well so it seems like I am in the room at all times,” she added.
