tourist lanza tents beds as

Tents as tourist beds in Lanza!

The madness of renting tents as tourist beds in a warehouse in Lanzarote.

The victim found a sign on the door of the premises urging the tenants not to explain themselves to the neighbors: "They are not friends"

He booked a 'shared room' in an urban coworking space through Airbnb for 25 euros a night and when he showed up there he couldn't get over his astonishment: he found a commercial premises full of tents.

The protagonist of this story, which took place in Arrecife (Lanzarote), is a tourist who has denounced what happened in the local media Biosfera Digital.

Two welcome signs at the door of the premises, one in English and one in Spanish, urging the 'tenants' to "not give explanations to neighbours and people outside about this coworking. The locals don't want tourists. Don't let them into the premises, they're not friends."

Likewise, the affected tourist told the aforementioned media that "in the reservation there is an address, which later turns out to be a different one to mislead."

Arrecife Police inspect tented hostel at furniture store.

The Local Police of Arrecife inspects the property and will draw up a report, which will be sent to the Ministry of Tourism of the Government of the Canary Islands, with sanctioning power

The Local Police of Arrecife has inspected, yesterday, the premises that were offered on the Airbnb platform advertised "shared room" and where tourists - after making reservations, and presenting themselves at that establishment in the capital of Lanzarote - found "tents".

The mayor of Arrecife, Yonathan de León, after learning - through news disseminated by several media - of the existence of this type of "tourist activity" in the municipality, requested the Local Police, the body of which he is directly responsible, to verify and inspect that premises, and to proceed to the initiation of the corresponding Police report.

The local agents went to this premises - which previously housed a furniture store - and where those responsible for it allowed the Police officers free access to the interior of the building.

In the proceedings carried out by the Local Police, the existence of multiple tents, shared bathrooms and toilets, and their probable use as an "accommodation establishment" is recorded.

Tourism regulations in the Canary Islands determine that any establishment dedicated to tourist activity requires prior authorisation, in addition to complying with certain requirements and characteristics. That premises did not display or provide, as determined by the Canary Islands regulations, their corresponding plates and authorisation number.

The mayor of the city, Yonathan de León, has detailed today that the minutes drawn up by the Local Police "will be sent from the City Council of Arrecife to the Ministry of Tourism of the Government of the Canary Islands, so that through its Department of Tourist Inspection it acts accordingly".

Yonathan de León has reiterated that "Arrecife and Lanzarote are among the preferred destinations for national and foreign tourists, where we have a great range of regulated and quality accommodation. We do not want or want this type of 'tourist activity' to be in our city. We work for a better type of tourism where when you arrive on the island you really find the accommodation product that you have contracted and planned."
