'This collection of travel stories is stuffed with big-hitters... psychological trauma dominates many tales: Will Self writes about an identity crisis is Vienna; Toby Litt deals with surreal espionage in Berlin; and William Sutcliffe tells a story of applying for work with an Italian institute run by madmen.'
'Some of the best travel writing is to be found where fact and fiction blur, something of which Sarah Champion, the editor of Fortune Hotel, takes full advantage... Fortune Hotel is about real-life characters... travelling to escape, to rekindle relationships or to forget the past. They seek enlightenment, adventure or oblivion.'
