Journalists at Sochi are live-tweeting their hilarious and gross hotel experiences
February 5 at 1:44 PM

Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics (here are 15 alarming signs that Russia might not be ready) reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.

    CNN booked 11 rooms in one @Sochi2014 media hotel five months ago. We have been here for a day and only one room is available.

    Still waiting for "preparations" on hotel room to finish. Hoping they're origami-folding toilet roll, rather than, say, putting the roof on.

    I have a room! No heating or internet, but it has a (single) bed at least...

    Water main break means no water at our hotel in . Could take awhile to fix.

    My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, "do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous."

    Water restored, sorta. On the bright side, I now know what very dangerous face water looks like.

    Also on the bright side: I just washed my face with Evian, like I'm a Kardashian or something.

    And Putin just keeps insisting everything is fine and ready.  Isn't that exactly what Obama keeps saying about the economy and Obamacare?
