Better don't use room safes Secure deposit of valuable items at the hotel
(As of: 20th June 2007)
FRANKFURT - June 2007. For security reasons, most hotel guests deposit their valuable items in their room safes. This, however, is not a safe place: "Many models definitely cannot be trusted and offer hardly any protection", warns the European Security Systems Association (ESSA) before the beginning of the holiday season. "And even the safes installed at the hotel receptions and offices often fail in the event of a burglary or fire."
