A woman was left embarrassed after she was turned away from a hotel and was accused of being a prostitute.
22-year-old Alecsandra Puflea and her boyfriend of Romania, have booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Ferensway, Hull, East Yorks, United Kingdom.
However, she was refused access after she was mistaken for a prostitute.
Puflea, who is a criminology and forensic science graduate of the University of Hull, had booked the room online.
However, when she arrived, Puflea was denied access to the room. A staff member told her “I’m sorry, but we do not accept Romanians.”
Puflea called the police as she felt that she was being discriminated against.
She was later told that the hotel had introduced a policy, banning women from Romania to use their rooms because some of them had used the hotel for prostitution.
The Holiday Inn Express apologized and insisted that Puflea “was absolutely not refused on racial grounds.”
The hotel chain said that there had been a “misunderstanding” due to the similarity with other suspicious bookings they had received.
