Russian hotel includes kidnapping advice

By Bang

A hotel in Russia is handing out advice on what to do if you're kidnapped.

The unnamed hotel in the city of Rostov gives their patrons an information guide when they book a hotel room, which features a section entitled "If you are held hostage or kidnapped".

A man known simply as Matt found the strange information guide when he travelled to Russia as one of 238 Manchester United fans who made the long journey to see their team's Europa League game with FC Rustov.

Taking to Twitter to post a picture of the information, Matt said: "My hotel in Rostov offers advice I've never had at any hotel anywhere else in the world."

The advice, written in broken English, recommends that guests "shouldn't resist" if they find themselves being kidnapped.

They are told to comply with any demands, remember movements and appearances and try to recall sights and sounds if they are moved.

Despite the slightly worrying contents of the information guide, Matt insists everyone he's met at the hotel so far have been "very pleasant."

When asked by fellow Manchester United fans if it was cause for concern, Matt said: "It's very run down but the people so far are very pleasant. There's a few bars dotted about too. Not seen any trouble."
